    It does take 30 seconds to check, shame Jumbo couldn't figure that out...

    Between them should be top 6? I don't know what that means, could you rephrase? Do you think if you add Dennis to this squad and we have even an average amount of injuries, we wouldn't have got top 6?

    I mean, we've had more than a 'couple of injuries' and we are top 10, not a 'lot, lot worse than that' so that's pretty much the opposite of what Nath predicted, no?

    But I wouldn't take the piss for a pre season prediction, they're mostly a stab in the dark. Likewise I wouldn't mock @IRB for saying Burnley will struggle this year.

    Now we're talking, a decent post.

    Im gonna go no there wont be, but will pay top whack for front row seats when someone thinks there is.

    Some over eager 'sports parent' wheels out a frightened 10 year old Jimmy who despite already having the physique of an adult Olympian gold medalist is carrying a small load in the back of his trunks and pleads desperately with proud parent for a null race.

    Aye, those players coming back from injury have propelled us up the league, from the dramatic lows of 6th after Norwich away, and 3rd after Blackpool at home to the heady heights of 10th???

    Yes, clearly solely the injuries fault.

    Nath, the prophet.

    Yes, we've definitely had a full strength squad since Norwich away. That'll be why we played Gaspar at CM, Choudhury at CB, Cathcart at RB, and gave decent game time to Adeyemo in the weeks following. We've been able to play a full strength squad (or close to), for a handful of games at best. If you don't think we've been hampered by that fact then we'll agree to disagree.

    Bloody hell, is this Nath's second account or something? He's not gonna shag you mate.

    May I nip in here and quickly ask which team you support?

    Asking for a blogging/vlogging/podcasting friend...

    Right , even with my ignore list fully activated I can tell there is another tiff brewing.

    Im going to predict a 4 horse accumulator...

    1- Someone like GD starts it off but is mainly joking.
    2- Jumbo steams in there, getting all worked up and petulant, GD leaves when it stops being funny and gets boring.
    3- Someone else steams in to Jumbos rescue, usually Burnsy, so am going to put him down as my third bet
    4- One of either A19 or Chumlax comes steaming in to re invigorate the argument when everyone had thought it was finished. Gonna go A19 .

    In all seriousness though, if I said that (can't be bothered to check) then I was completely wrong with my prediction

    See how easy that was?

    Fair enough, was talking about from the worst of the situation, but also the point where we were able to start filling out the squad which you deemed as top 6, lest we forget that Dux said it’d win the league as was start of the year. But the return of said key players still haven’t seen a drastic upturn in fortune which is the key bit….

    Also, finding it rather amusing you’re so freaked out by a bit of light hearted humour about Nath given his doomsayer outlook in the last few years, understandably so now. It’s two repeated lines, given what I’d seen in a post from July. The fact you’ve jumped straight to the “not gonna shag you” is weird, and about 10 years out of reference.

    Just a weird hill to die on, from you, overall.

    I made the same kind of prediction for Burnley at the start of the season, and pointed out they proved me wrong massively a few weeks back. What's your point?

    Ok moog. The mangled writing prose is a nice touch for this character
  10. Jumbolina

    And I’m sure nobody will mention your Burnley prediction again. I thought Hull would do a lot better than they did.

    Yet we will be here in 2 years and the hapless fool WatfordTalk will continue to squirm about his best team in history of the Championship/piddly league nonsense.

    And you'll still be pretending you don't use Twitter, while whiling away your days searching out tweets to get yourself in a pathetic tizzy about. Very weird behaviour, but each to their own.

    I’d be surprised if you were this strange, or erratic in person. If you are, good luck to you and I hope you get the help that you need.

    You know what you are mate, and you know it's not healthy.

    Its amazing how all the people who love to say I start all the endless fights/debates, sneer or care about 'point-scoring' etc are totally absent in saying anything about the last few pages.

    Almost as if it's a false narrative dreamt up by some who ignore it just because someone else doing it says things they agree with.

    A lot of people like to wind each other up probably because they are bored and there isn’t any football to get “excited” about.

    This isn’t an argument. This is just contradiction!

    Well, it can be. It's not as if an argument has to be a connected series of statements intended to establish a proposition.

    For me, and this is my opinion, these are quite aggressive questions. You are well within your rights to ask them I wont dispute that, Cathartic to write and probably to ask Ill agree
    BUT they will likely provoke a defensive response and you may not get the answers you are looking for. It's an engagement forum rather than an interrogation or inquiry. Lots of the information could be sought and probably more likely gained in a more subtle and inquiring rather than adversarial way.
    Yes it is our club and we are invested and deserve some answers. And I am not saying we should skip the difficult questions or pander to them

    If I was faced with that barrage Id be very unlikely to want to return to speak and would make minimal efforts to do so in a token way
  33. Burnsy

    Burnsy First Team

    Fair enough.

    But I’ve been pretty clear that I don’t think that there should be an atmosphere where we are almost ‘grateful’ to them for finally appearing.

    If they are asked hard (not aggressive) questions and they fudge some answers, turn and run - then it should tell everyone what they need to know.

    My personal opinion is that they will fudge the answers regardless - so I’d rather the questions leave them in no doubt that we have seen them for what they are over the last couple of years (at least).

    But I’ve also been clear that I think the time for a Q&A has been and gone. I don’t really have any interest in what they have to say unless it’s about them being in the process of selling a majority or whole stake in the club. There’s not really much else I want to hear - or would believe regardless.

    No sign of when this will actually happen...

    Pre-season I presume when things really will be up in the air in terms of players and manager but they will probably try to be positive and "look to the future" as Duxbury tried to do last summer.

    Has to be before a set date else they have failed EFL rules.
