Re: Venkys Debt...

US style "rivalries" aren't really important in football, Waco.

The only hope is that dropping again allows us to completely trim the fat and start over. It's worked for some teams before. Either that or we become the next Portsmouth....

Re: Venkys Debt...

As explained countless times before, the total debt is irrelevant as far as FFP is concerned. It's also irrelevant from the point of view of going into administration. The only relevance it has is if Venky's wish to recoup their investment into the club in any sell on price. The only thing that mat...

Re: Venkys Debt...

"Player sales and so on." When I started following Blackburn Rovers, we were 8th in the Championship. We had a strong nucleus of players...Gestede, Rhodes, King, Marshall, Cairney, etc. I don't think there are any players left to sell now...& if we did, why would we want to sell the last players th...

Re: Venkys Debt...

Makes zero impact.

Unless nobody wanted to buy it for how much they want for it, so they liquidated.

Re: Wolves v Rovers, Sat 22nd April 2017, 15:00

If Lenihan and Mulgrew are available it would make our defensive options better. Ironically we played our best football against Bristol City with Conway and Bennett as full backs. Mulgrew is probably our best midfielder and is wasted in the back four. A statement of intent would be... -------------...

Well Greer was punditing on the Brighton game tonight, so probably won't be in the team tomorrow.

Re: Wolves v Rovers, Sat 22nd April 2017, 15:00

Yeah I know that story. The other half rarely wants to do the fun stuff! Though obviously camping and hiking are fun in themselves.

Back to the game, we're obviously doomed because OOJW's beloved Lambert is in charge at Wolves. He's the greatest manager ever, he's even been to Allemagne.

Scafell and not the Pike?

Which route you taking?
Scafell is easily the better walk. The pike is a bit boring.

Re: Tony Mowbray

:lol: I suppose the wretched time he had at Villa, the farce whilst he was here and the poor start he made with Wolves were just teething problems then? He's a fantastic manager, only taken him 5 years and 3 clubs to get a side winning more often than it loses... over 8 games... :lol: Villa in the ...

Re: Tony Mowbray

He's not a decent manager. He's ok at best. Good run now doesn't make up for all his naffness previously.

Re: Current Events/News

Also true.

Labour indicating they will support the motion. So, barring a big rebellion, should happen.

Interestingly, for the first time in my life I'm actually in a constituency where the result isn't a foregone conclusion..... 'citin' actually having a say! :hyper:

Re: Current Events/News

Truth.

Probably in their interests to do so, to be honest, more likely to have had a chance to regroup and therefore a chance of actually winning by 2020....

Though there will also be those Labour MPs who want to see them lose just so they can get shut of Corbyn.
