    Richard Scudamore.

    Good for him. 🤷‍♂️

    Goal of the season

    We've been spoilt, but Mayor's second Vs Grimsby by a country mile still. It's the best goal I've ever seen in person.
  3. Did you not see him play this season before his injury?
  4. Yes. Some players in some teams are simply too good to leave out. IMO, O'Connell is one of those players for us. Fair? Possibly not, but that's football sometimes. There are three spots to fill back there. Still places to fight for.
  5. I really can’t believe that people would say O’Connell needs to “wait his turn” or to somehow “earn” his way back into the starting XI. Not even just on Saturdays performance, but on his performances before his time out injured this season too. He’s been absolutely magnificent for us this season. We don’t have another CB that can do the things he can and is so assured on the ball. The side would not be weaker for his inclusion - it would be even better!

    On a relatively related note, I did see more Leicester City shirts in Bangkok than any other football team. Quite something really!

    Nipping in the bud

    Is it just me, or does this suggest that SD is actually personally worth a pretty significant amount of dosh? You could say that it's worrying that he's dipping into his own pocket, or you could say it's reassuring that he's that committed to the club.

    Bangkok was really full on & an assault on the senses so going to Cambodia afterwards where there's barely even anything on the roads was a bit of a masterstroke.
  9. I know we’ve been going well without him & all, but if he’s fit, he needs to play. It’s as simple as that. He brings so much. Has to be for Stokes or Aimson (Stokes for me). Maybe harsh, but that’s football. And there’s nothing wrong with having a strong bench. It’s a squad game these days, and a long season with a lot of games left to play.

    Yeah, sunrise at Angkor Wat is what the entire trip was based around really. It was always going to be Cambodia plus somewhere else. All I did was get my arse out of bed for 3:30am! 😉

    Danny Maestro

    If he’s allowed to go for nowt in the summer or very little in January, there will be uproar. It’s strange that there’s been no news on that score.

    Matchday: Bury v Stevenage 17-11-2018

    To be completely honest, I actually feel genuinely sorry for the Stevenage fans that made the long trip yesterday. I honestly don’t remember seeing such a negative team before. They played like they had 10 men from the first whistle. If I had travelled all this way & been served that, I’d have been absolutely seething.

    Does anyone know how many red cards that is in Bury games this season now? Absolutely unbelievable!

    Realistic Aim for New Year

    I'm not even that bothered. I'm just enjoying enjoying watching Bury again!

    Nathan Cameron

    Surprised, but delighted to see him sign with a football league club. Best of luck to him.

    Matchday: Bury v Stevenage 17-11-2018

    One of the most negative teams I've ever seen. And I mean before the red card! Their manager should have some explaining to do. The only danger from our POV was that they might get away with playing like they did and nick a point.

    Jay O’Shea

    There’s virtually no competition, but yes it was.
  19. Because he’s completely knackered I would imagine.

    Beckford!

    Criticising Beckford because he’s injury prone in his mid-30’s. Unbelievable. Completely ridiculous to mention him in the same breath as Maguire. He’s put “nothing” in has he not? 8 goals in 15 games. Sit down.

    Chris Maguire ?! Frothing at the mouth merged

    Yeah, I don’t think the hotel thing is a valid criticism tbh. Sorry. Mourinho still lives in a hotel & nobody cares. There can be any number of reasons behind it.

    Chris Maguire ?! Frothing at the mouth merged

    Who cares? I don’t get why some people are still so obsessed with the guy.
  23. I think it’s a pointless question in our case. We’ve played well the vast majority of the time. That’s what’s important. You won’t always win if you play well, but that’s just football. Anyone remember last season? We’re a picky bunch...

    Fair play Popey.

    That doesn’t usually stop this board reacting to a loss like it’s the end of the world as we know it!
