  1. EFL, LCFC and FFP

    Ah yes you're probably right. Meaning, if we hadn't got promoted we would have barely gone over the allowable loss.
  2. EFL, LCFC and FFP

    No idea and doubt we'll ever know. Could be things like improving the facilities to be up to Premier League standard?
  3. EFL, LCFC and FFP

    People need to realise we paid a settlement amount, we weren't fined. As per the BBC article: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/43146018 We paid a settlement after we argued the toss with the EFL that we only exceeded the allowed loss limit due to costs following promotion. I guess the EFL thought it better to settle, as we had a good case, considering the rules are so shit. It says to me that we could have carried on battling the case and walked away without paying anything (although, I imagine lawyer costs for this could exceed the settlement figure). Aren't QPR in a similar battle, considering their interpretation of the rules? All-in-all, this just goes to show how shit FFP is. The rules and guidelines are unclear at best, and clubs really aren't being penalised for overspending as long as they get promoted (see us, Bournemouth, Wolves when they get promoted). Had Forest got promoted after all their spending, I doubt their fans would be moaning. At least our owners have had a clear vision and executed it tremendously well, to get us into a great financial position (league win/European money aside). People will enjoy dragging our name through the mud for a while (especially our near, lower-league neighbours) whilst Manchester City go and pump millions of oil money through their club and spend £50m a pop on fullbacks.
  4. Andy King

    4 or 5 out but Silva in, Diabate in and Barnes in. So really we're only losing 1 or 2 in terms of numbers....
  5. Actually amazing how great our depth is these days - that's a strong team.
  6. Sagna was about to come here ?!?

    Glad we didn't sign him. Wouldn't want to be pay over the odds wages for a 34 year old. Much keener to bring in someone younger. From Fuchs, Wes, Huth, Simpson to Chilwell, Maguire, Dragovic, Amartey we've aready cut the average age down massively.
  7. Europa league spot

    Burnley haven't won in 5, they've already had a bit of a slip up. Likewise, we did as well, that's why it was so important to beat Huddersfield. They've got tough games next 5 - home to Man City and Man United and then away to Palace, Newcastle and Swansea who ALL need points to beat the drop. Whereas we have some really good home fixtures (Watford, Swansea, Stoke) all coming up. Confident we can be above them by the end of Feb.
  8. Okazaki on the floor

    Shinji is pure chaos and I love it.
  9. Spurs at home

    Can't make this because of work. SK3, £40, PM if interested.
  10. New chants and songs

    Since we're all going with Okazaki chants at the minute, how about Man City's old chant for Balotelli? Ooooooh Okazaki, he's a striker, he's ****ing class He runs around the pitch, he'll never miss a blade of grass And when he shoots, he falls over, and ends up on his arse
  11. Claude Puel - Contender

    People jumping to massive conclusions already, and he's not even got the job! Remember when we appointed Claudio and everyone was completely miffed? His record in France is good, and it may work out well with our squad of players if he likes to play defensive. We don't need fancy football at this stage, we need effective football. I'm sure all of us would take what he did with Southampton here - 8th and a cup final appearance at Wembley.
  12. Who do you want for Right back

    Oh **** off with these threads. Danny Simpson was one of our best players today, he was absolutely solid.
  13. Because he's been one of the best things about us so far this season? He brings the ball out of defence because he has **** all options other than going sideways to Morgan, who is just going to hoof it down the pitch. We were crying out for that last season. Yes he is going to make mistakes - get better people in midfield offering the pass and he won't make those mistakes. You cannot honestly tell me that after playing the difficult fixtures we've had you want to drop him. Tell you what, go back a few seasons and watch a video of five at the back with Bruno N'Gotty and see if you fancy that again. Oh wait, you don't know about those days.
  14. wtf this forum never ceases to amaze me.
  15. Dragovic looks some player

    He was constantly getting dragged inside by Coutinho. Albrighton should have been covering Robertson overlapping but he tended to stay infield as well. Not Amartey's fault.
