  1. 3 years ago Leeds averaged 22,000 compared to 34,000 this season - I wonder why could it be that they weren't very good then and flying high now?
  2. We've sold 19,000 season tickets how have we lost half of our fan base sorry? Go to Old Trafford midweek, The Etihad, The Emirates there's empty seats everywhere despite the games officially being sell outs. The red button has killed midweek away followings in the Championship for a lot of clubs and if the choice for some home fans is to bust a gut to get back from work in all the traffic and over to the game or to watch on SKY some will take the latter. Not all football fans are fanatical, some will take the easy option rightly or wrongly.
  3. They sold over 20,000 tickets, many of which decided to stay at home and watch on the red button. Almost every club in the land operates the same system of counting tickets sold not attendees. Not really sure what you would expect the crowds to be in the current climate if I'm honest?
  4. Think I'd rather remain managerless than bring in Pardew. Hughton and Moyes will I suspect both turn us down, leaving the likes of Pearson and Adkins in the fold which is totally uninspiring. That paves the way for Pulis then I guess.
  5. Nice idea, providing they don't dispose of the tops that get swapped and give them to a charity or something.
  6. If you're driving and want to get some food/drink pre-match I would suggest parking in Prestwich, both car parks are free and there's also ample street parking on the likes of Rectory Lane or Highfield Road, straight off J17 of the M60 , right at the roundabout and a few hundred yards down Bury New Road. If you like your craft ales go to either Cuckoo, All the Shapes, Rufus or The Crooked Man. All extremely decent if a little small. There's also Cape to Cuba which is a decent rum bar. The White Horse, Railway and Naturalist and Red Lion are fairly standard boozers but in fairness you won't get any trouble and the beer is ok. If you want to park close enough to be able to walk head to the Friendship Inn which is on the edge of Sedgley Park, it's a brisk 15 minute walk to the ground from there and you'll probably need to get there early for a space. Food wise there's plenty of places, couple of decent Turkish places (Istanbul and Anatolian Grill), Chroma does decent pizzas or there's a Pizza Express further down towards Sedgley Park (next to the Friendship Inn). There's Panama Hatty's if you want a steak, or if you just want a fry up Pinto's is spot on (next to the Crooked Man) From Prestwich village you can jump on the number 97 bus towards the city centre and get off at the Moor Lane/Singleton Road crossroads which is a couple of minutes from the stadium, or get a taxi for £3/4. You could even walk it if you're in no rush to get home afterwards, it's probably a 30 minute brisk walk. As already mentioned the alternative is the train and to drink in Manchester itself, there's very little between the City Centre and Sedgley Park coming from town, and Sedgley Park itself is a massive Orthodox Jewish area so not exactly swimming with pubs although again there's a decent little Turkish place and a couple of other cafes/restaurants.
  7. You have a couple of lovely new bathroom suites in the Hamil Road End. (joke by the way)
  8. Thanking them as it covers all damage costs maybe?
  9. Surprising that as some are still claiming it’s a hot topic up and down the country.
  10. I’ll take that response as a “you’re right I did base it on last Tuesday”. Any way into the game is commendable whether it be through the Premier League, Championship, lower leagues or non-league. Time will tell whether their careers go forwards or backwards but good luck to them.
  11. "They have wasted millions on an Academy which, judging by last Tuesday, is not fit for purpose" You judged by last Tuesday in your previous post, make your mind up. Your question about how many have come through is a separate one, so far not that many. However am academy doesn't open on day one and start producing 1st team players on day two, it's arguably a 10 year+ process and we were starting from literally nothing. Players like Campbell, Verlinden, Edwards, Souttar and Sorensen may not have covered themselves in glory in individual games like the Vale tie, but they have all been in and around the first team and there's high hopes for them. I guess we'll see, but to say it's a waste of money when the club now has a state of the art training facility and academy on the balance sheet is a bit hasty.
  12. Not sure how you can say they wasted millions on an academy based on 90 minutes of football. Ridiculous statement.
  13. I've already stated several times that I think Stoke should pay the damage bill. Whether that bill is close to £100k is massively debatable but I think it would absolutely be the right thing to do.
