  1. Pretty cnuty response, this. And because it’s a bit cnuty, I’ll answer. Your reasoning for being here - you told us - you’re a ‘snow plough’. Which is as vague, ambiguous and open to subjective interpretation as many of your recent posts and answers to direct questions. I’ll tell you this much - you AIN’T here for the good of your health, or our benefit. You clearly have an objective for continually posting - it may be genuine, positive for bwfc, or it may be downright disingenuous - but you still being here says to me that your objective is still not fulfilled - and sticking around
  2. Thanks Casino/Howard - appreciate that the extra bidder is another factor
  3. OK thanks. So Howard - if there's no obligation to sell over liquidation then it's a simple game of risk for KA, and he holds all the aces? So his recent actions suggest he's chasing a higher price from Bassini, accepting that Bassini may fail and that he may be forced down liquidation route. This risks alienating your bidders and him being forced into an awkward legal inquiry uncovering dodgy dealings. That says to me Ken's either got cast iron guarantees on the Bassini money and/or he's prepared to go the liquidation route rather than sell to your bidder. Which also says he was never
  4. I've been following this, like many others, with extreme interest - and add my thanks to Howard for his insight. The bit I'm missing in my head is - if we assume Bassini doesn't prove funds/pass FPP tests (if appropriate), then if liquidation is a better option financially for KA than selling to Howard's bidders, what would possibly sway KA to go with H's mob other than an improved offer from Howard's bidders, or a rare moment of conscience/PR concerns on behalf of KA? Howard - is there any legal obligation for KA to accept a lone bid from your mob rather than force the club into liquid
  5. Went to the York game, in philosophical mood, and came away reasonably positive. Plus points were: - The centre backs - although not exactly tested I saw enough to believe that Beevers (especially) and Finney will be solid; - Mavies looked interested, lively, and trust he can display that he's a cut above at this level; - Reckon Pratley will be a massive player for us this season, assuming he stays; - Yep it was only York, but certainly first half we were knocking it about OK. Other observations: - Madine looked inert even against York; - Proctor - looked willing but not sure
  6. Such an eye-opener for me that day - I'd experienced what I thought were fraught/savage atmospheres before then - and was obviously well aware of what it meant as a fixture - but in terms of evil atmospheres this was a whole new level. Made ever so slightly weirder that nobhead here decided it would be a good location for a first date. Errr, as it happens it didn't last...
  7. Absolutely no way. Easily good enough for this level, if used right. More likely to be one that leaves and prospers, leaving us to wonder wtf we were doing with them while they were here...
  8. Mounts I normally agree with you but I'm absolutely aghast you thought Vela did ok. I thought he had his worst game in a Bolton shirt. He just does NOT want to know - looks like a sh!t-scared schoolkid wishing Lennon would either sub him or send him to the 'safety' of full-back asap. It's probably not the game to single players out, as so many came out with fck-all credit, but he stood around marking space for so much of the game - what p!sses me off even more is he obviously has talent, but seems perfectly happy to let the game pass him by - a couple of times he even pointed at the man on
  9. 'Habit' is definitely the word. Never a 'super fan' but like many others I stood religiously on the Burnden terraces throughout my teenage years, along with some regular local away days, and then moved to the Reebok, got my ST each year, etc., etc. Never thought I wouldn't go - whatever happened in my work/home life, going to the match was non-negotiable. And then my dad stopped going, and mates I'd stood/sat with for years got families and new priorities, and then a couple of seasons ago found myself going alone, which wasn't anywhere near as much fun (Yes, I'm *that guy* trying to wangle a
  10. 100% definitely. Might stop me screaming "put your foot on the fkin ball!!!" every two minutes from the ESL...
  11. Damien Muff Steve Bloomer Clameron Jerome Nicky Beaver Robbie Growler Shefki Coochie Ben Snatcher Glen Hymen (doesn't work, I know...) I'm 'ere all week....
  12. Enough is enough on Beckford. It just ain't gonna happen. It's not even like he's a lazy cnut who knows where the goal is.
  13. We weren't watching the same game then.
  14. That was as bad as I've seen for a while. Dervite and Ream are fucking dogshit. Basics just aren't there. Whatever positive elements Lennon has injected, they weren't on show tonight. Dreadful.
  15. and we all thought 'the only way is up'...didn't we??
  16. Serious question - and this absolutely isn't aftertiming - but is ANYONE genuinely surprised that this hasn't worked? Was it not blindingly obvious that this was a big punt on behalf of the club, an 'anyone must be better than Coyle' naive option? Freedman's stock was at its optimum at the time due to Palace flying high (with some good players, but as palace fans will tell you after some time under Freedman not playing well) - some might say Coyle himself had similar stock in the recent past, and at a national level - but with very little genuine managerial pedigree to back this up. Fa
  17. I always think this one when I think of goals that more should have been made of. Sasa's mazy dribble as well. I was also going to say Philliskirk's free kick(s) against Coventry but seem to remember a rumour of Michel Platini shortly thereafter stating he was the best striker of a dead ball on the planet. In which case it probably wouldn't qualify for the category in question
  18. We'll win this - 2-1 I'm going for. He has to change the approach at home though - he surely must see that.
  19. I predict a draw. Some will see it as success, some as failure. We'll all probably be none the wiser after the game, might be in the bottom three, and more than likely arguing amongst ourselves. Happy days
  20. Draw or win - both the same to an aficionado of the lay market As it happens, I think we'll draw, aye.
  21. Something tells me we won't lose tomorrow. But I hardly expect to get inspired and filled with confidence either. And so the pain goes on...
  22. I can see us needing to beat Stoke on the last day to stay up - and to be honest I'll take that now if we have to. I truly thought we were gone at Christmas - I saw nothing for us in January with the fixtures we had but the team surprised even the most deluded optimists. Swansea look beat to me - the season has caught up with them and they're there for the taking, despite their pretty football. We can beat them, and get our noses in front. Similarly we can get sumat at Villa - they are playing sh!te. Every season has twists and turns - this season will be no different. Wigan, Blackburn a
