I remember thinking when we moved into our spanking new stadium then signed Robbie Elliot - how we paying for all this?

I think we're paying for it now.

BWFC - born to be skint.

 

The stadium was always going to be an albatross around our necks , but how much would redeveloping burden have cost? , regarding players fees  they were more than recouped by the sales that have been mentioned in other posts.

Let’s not forget the £2.5m and £4m profits made from Jensen and Gudjohnsen in the year after his departure too. 

Who we had to sell to pay the bills even back then.

Played some great football in those seasons after premier league. And still couldn't get numbers through the door.

I remember a midweek match away to Huddersfield , we lost 3-2 I think but the football was brilliant and were very unlucky to lose.

I also remember around that time beating Palace at home live on Sky 3-0 and we were great. In fact most home games had quality and goals, they made it cheap tickets for Bradford on Boxing Day, sold out and it was an awful 0-0. Standard!

Doesn't seem to get mentioned ever but when staff and players don't get paid then I'm guessing PP isn't getting anything either. Guaranteed BSA would have wanted his money or these other potential saviours  like Warnock et al.

Ignoring the obvious "he's shut so shouldn't be getting paid" replies I honestly wonder how much it will turn out that when its all written down that PP kept it all together for us in spite of the financial situation and some players behaving like prima donnas.

Was it 3-0 at half time? Battered them in the second half Goalie saved everything for them. Think there was a big turn out of bolton fans if I remember rightly

Yes it was a funny season  , we started well then had a wobble , then started chasing Sunderland down and then we went to shit , did we just scrape in the play offs ? . Mind you Steve Banks in the net didn' t help , he was wank.

Had to check results for that I always get the two Ipswich play off seasons mixed up. 

This one was scraped, not helped by losing at Bury which was also on Sky IIRC

I've thought similar the last few weeks. 

On the pitch we're still dog shit but I reckon Phil has took a fair brunt of the shit from the playing squad off the pitch whilst getting radio silence from sweaty Ken. 

Wouldn't want to be in his unpaid shoes for love nor money.

Think we beat wolves on a Friday night to get us in to play off spots instead of them?

We signed Ritchie and that Alan Johnson chap and it turned the season. 

Or was that the Barry Knight season?

Totally agree. It’s gone way beyond wrong players, wrong tactics, wrong formations. For Parkinson now he’s just trying to look after his players. Unless he’s been pressed he hasn’t used the problems as an excuse. Don’t get me wrong new money, new owners would mean new change at the top. But he’s not a twat, he’s not a cunt and hatred pointed in his direction for me is displaced. I think he’s handled himself with dignity and professionalism

We signed them in the barry knight season and both played in the play off game 

Johnson scored a belter and Ritchie gave away a stupid penalty

It's complicated , we drew with Wolves at home 1-1 and then won away at Portsmouth in the Watford year (1998/99) to pip Wolves by 3 points, then in the Twat Knight year (1999/00) we beat Wolves 2-1 and then beat Norwich 2-1 to pip Wolves by 2 points.the 1-1 draw was the Friday night game.
