Re: Relegation

Don't worry about it. If we get relegated then there's nothing we can do about it. Have a good weekend. You forgot to put now on the end of your middle sentence. I don't think we will go down, but the rhs of midfield was a problem predicted by many pre-season, due to the fitness of Brady and JBG.

Re: Annual accounts released

How was the poor start avoidable? We had an injury to Ben Mee and it showed when he came back how much he was missed. Indeed he seems to be the one player we cannot do without. We had Ben Gibson as a replacement but obviously not available. Short of buying a top quality centre back at short notice ...

Re: Annual accounts released

£80m in cash or equivalent and once again we only have 2 fit wingers. Still it's better than several times we have only had 1.

We are probably safe this year, but what a ridiculous state of affairs.

You have got to admire though that we seem to have weathered Covid well.
