Think we could become a reasonably comfortable mid-table L1 side if we just get a bit more on the budget and have decent scouting/recruitment instead of the haphazard approach that got us a crocked Appiah

The hardest bit may be staying up this season with a bunch of eunuchs as strikers
I think League 1 survival is the aim for the foreseeable future, I can’t see a push for promotion towards the Championship for at least the next 5-10 years especially with all the extra expense of the new stadium. The good news is that the spending higher up the leagues is decreasing now. The bubble will have to burst sometime.

Didn't we do the Blades 5-0 at Plough Lane the week before or after that Palace game?

Saturday was dour, but tbh I'd take another 10 nil-nils if it means we scrape to survival again and write this season off as job done in extremely challenging circumstances. Agree with Alan's post last night - with the new ground there's a chance of pleasant surprises in terms of summer recruitment. Not unforeseeable that the odd ex PL / Champ player (with plenty of L1 legs left) might fancy a bit of fairy tale action and a cushy year or two in SW19 on Appiah's wages.

Welcome, Lee Cattermole.
We were on that day in 1985, 5-0 away at Palace, what a day

Using Barcelona as an example for us is a bit like saying that because Amazon does well out of routing sales through Ireland, your local butcher could do the same.

Underestimate there apparently it’s 800m

Plus merchandise sales around the world. They must generate 300-500m a year.

That definitely makes a difference but don’t forget about 100m a year from competitions, average gates of 75,000 and massive sponsorship tend to help as well.

Is that because they have a presidential-style election where the person who promises to pump in the most cash wins?

Of course it's obvious we can't compare ourselves to Barcelona. What I'm saying is that the concept of fan ownership works and Barcelona playing at the very top level is the best example of this. They aren't thinking of selling out just because they are up against other clubs with an almost endless supply of cash being pumped in by their owners.

I thought Roscrow looked a lot leaner and fitter yesterday. It seems his body is finally getting used to full time football. It may be time for him to be starting a few games and playing 60 or 70 minutes and really getting him up to speed for a full 90 mins.

LD - much easier if you were set up as the first football club in a relatively large city. Pointless comparing ourselves to the likes of them, Real Madrid or Bayern. We're not even like Munich 1860 who used to be on a level with Bayern but are now third division

Seem to remember we had someone on trial from Barcelona in the early 90s – Giorgio?

Barcelona seem quite good at competing against the almost bottomless wealth of the owners of Man City, PSG, or Chelsea etc.

OI wasn’t a comment about “people on here” I just heard a lot during Brexit about it potentially leading to the break up of the UK and no one ever offered an explanation of why that might be bad.

Same as people wanting to sell our club so that we can please floating football fans rather than worrying about the ones who actually support the fucking thing. Fan owned football clubs are like electric cars - right now they can’t really compete but in the future we’ll be all the rage 😁
Zayn Bux. Lol. Perhaps he’s a relative of one of the 3 amigos with big bucks. Is it April 1st?

‘Rump’. Lolz. Scotland cannot afford to be independent and wise Scots, most of them, know this.

The EU doesn’t want Catalunya breaking off either
TF - no great attachment to the UK, it is just more likely that the EU will exist in 10 years time than that the UK will.

For a while there would be constant Tory government in the rump.
Experienced players is what’s needed at this stage of the season, most of the young players froze yesterday and it’s not going to get any easier for the rest of the season
