Re: £385.000 a week

Simple answer. Stop paying to watch sport on TV.

About the times we struggled, when we won 3-2 at Sheff Utd in 08/09 season, didn't we have 4-5 players playing in the wrong positions due to injuries and suspensions?
I remember hearing the teams being read out and couldn't work out who'd be playing where until we lined up for kick off.

Couldn’t care less about Leeds, actually would like them to go up. Any idea we have of some sort of rivalry feels like Stockport with us.

Whereas I hope the Bas****s end up mid table, get liquidated and Ewood Park gets bulldozed.
