  1. At least 7 or 8 from this lot: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/41818849
  2. Off a quick search, it appears that there are at least 15-20 pubs with this name throughout the country (including Bury), strange.
  3. Not really surprised though, if anything it just shows that Askey has no plans to start playing 2 up front, which was kind of obvious anyway, despite people suggesting it all season. 1 place to play for, 2 decent strikers & a back up if needed is plenty at this stage in the season. Imagine we'll get rid of Archer in the summer too.

    Coronavirus

    Both Olympiakos & Arsenal players/staff all tested negative, not sure how it makes sense to postpone, unless it's a general postponement for the sake of the crowds rather than the clubs themselves travelling with it. If it is for that reason, then surely you'd postpone all games as the risk is the same throughout the country.

    Leon Legge

    Strange one as between the 4 clubs he's been at, he's played 10 complete (or mostly complete) seasons, 30+ apps etc, plus even 12/13 when he was loaned out he played nearly all of it between his parent club & the loaned (eventually signed to) one. Obviously rated at every club but not stayed anywhere longer than a few years, doesn't look like he ever fell out of favour completely, was just let go/released at end of contracts.
  6. Not complaining at all as I'm happy to wait for 2nd priority, but I just don't think the way they've done it really rewards 'fan loyalty' that much. Given there's thousands of people who bought a ticket for 23 games up front in the summer regardless of how we could have done (& some of these have likely gone to a lot of away games consistently throughout the season, like me), they're instead rewarding those people who are only now deciding to go to the last few away games, knowing that we're doing well. I know it's unavoidable & given no proper system is in place, it's difficult to think of a way they could have done it otherwise, but just seems a bit iffy & over the top IMO. I'll definitely be in line from likely 6am trying to get a ticket though when they're on for ST holders anyway.
  7. Little disappointed not to get first priority, will have been every single home game & 16(?) away games by the time Plymouth comes around but won't get it as I'm away for Carlisle. Hopefully the group of people that manage all 3 will be quite small though, so should be able to get 2nd. Imagine what they're implementing for next season will take into account all tickets bought etc, if they're going with some sort of points system.

    There's been constant talk of how our big issue is that we don't score enough, however stats just don't lie & I've never agreed, it simply isn't true. We look (& are) miles better going forward than last season. I think by the start of last month we'd already scored more than last season's total. We're top 4 in the league for games where both teams have scored, & our total shows we clearly can score, just can't outscore the opponent. This is not a purely offensive issue, it's defensive too. We're very much draw merchants, joint highest in the league. Yes, a 20+ a season striker would put us higher up the table, but so would a better quality/more consistent defence. They're equally as important. If you look at goals conceded, last season it was 55. If you average our current figure out over the rest of the season, we're actually on target to get the exact same amount, therefore our defence hasn't improved whatsoever, but our offence definitely has (on target to score 62~, against last season's 39).

    Not beyond the realms of possibility. Providing we keep up the performance level, Crewe is the only fixture I'm slightly worried about in terms of a loss. No reason we can't challenge the best home form I've ever seen us in, 03/04 (W15 D6 L2).
  10. It is pretty close for me, both players have been great, but when it comes to playing lower half teams we struggle to break them down sometimes & I think Taylor is one of the few we have that can produce something special out of nowhere. I'm easy with either though, wouldn't bother me to see one or the other on the sheet on Sat.
  11. Gotta be Smith in for me. Move back to our best defence as it's now available. Brown - Gibbo Legge Smith Monty - Taylor Joyce Burgess - Amoo Cullen Worrall Subs - Madison Conlon Brisley Manny Bennett Browne Pope
  12. "The stadium contains 2,618 toilets, more than any other venue in the world." More toilets than Salford fans on the day I imagine.
  13. This seems to come up in a thread every few months or so. Never had an issue with it myself, get searched at most away games & majority of home too, happy to volunteer for it & given my attitude, they're always friendly. Should be no issue with them doing it constantly to all kinds of people, better off searching/scanning thousands every game, rather than a single incident occur at any football match & result in an injury/loss of life/whatever. Also guarantee that the day somebody gets hit by a flare or similar, everyone will be asking where the search was. I was inches away from one at the Stoke game last year, so I'd much prefer they check as many people as possible, & thoroughly too.
  14. Not at all. I hate the PL with a passion & they're all just as bad as each other. Can't stand any of the top leagues in Europe really. Yes, I'll watch them on TV or go from time to time as I'm a die-hard football fan as well as a Vale fan, & I'll watch any game I can get my hands on, but I'm still against so many aspects of modern football & this is definitely one of them. In an ideal world, all clubs would be run by local business people who ensure they are sustainable & don't pump in masses of money, risking the long-term future of their club for a bit of short-term success. That way, when success finally does come in your own club's direction, it would be something worth celebrating, rather than seeing teams buying their way to the top & losing a lot of credit in the process. Only have to look at the ridicule Man City are getting by the majority of fans currently to see how people feel about them. Obviously I'm a realistic person & sustainability is never going to happen at this point...but just because there aren't FFP rules in place outside the EFL, & the top teams find loopholes in the laws of the game anyway, doesn't mean it's okay.
  15. Not all about just the gate money on the day. I already have 2 confirmed people coming with us for their first ever game. If some others can be reeled in by an offer & we give Crewe a pasting, they could be lasting fans, giving extra funds through merch in future/kiosks on match days. Anyway, I have enough faith in our owners that we could take a minor hit on some up front money in a single game. In the long run I very much doubt they're going to run us that badly that we'll be consistently losing money.
