    Man City CEO calls for B teams to be allowed into the EFL

    All Americans care about is "the market" and ways to make money. When Europe's major countries set up a football league, it was for fun, pride and prestige. To find out which city had the best football team. When the US set up a football league, it was all about "the market" and "profits". It...

    Man City CEO calls for B teams to be allowed into the EFL

    The fight isn't over. UEFA apparently bribed the English clubs to pull out, have given us a 36 team CL with a terrible format designed to make money and now want to sell a private equity stake in the CL for billions to stop the Super League from happening. These are charlatans as well as the...

    20 April Match thread

    I want an experimental line-up tonight. No point playing our strongest side in a dead rubber, blood some of the young lads in and throw them in the deep end tonight and let's see what they've got.

    Man City CEO calls for B teams to be allowed into the EFL

    Another thing worth noting is it'll be suicide for the players if they agree to this. Players have a lot of power in the game right now, as do agents, and owners don't like this one bit. So if the owners take charge of the league, they can set a wage cap across the board and stagnate player...

    Man City CEO calls for B teams to be allowed into the EFL

    Find it cute that people think this 12 team Super League will be restricted to just 7 cities. How can Americans maximise revenues with 2 teams in a small market like Manchester or 3 teams in London? It'll expand over the next generation and whilst London will always have a team, the days of...

    Man City CEO calls for B teams to be allowed into the EFL

    Got no sympathy for some lower league clubs fans denouncing this. Same lower league clubs fans who constantly are against measures to make English football more sustainable with a "spend what you want" attitude. There's only one way where that attitude leads. It should never be about money, it...

    Your Squads for Next Season

    Heard Omar Beckles is moving to a club down South next season as he wants to return closer to home. His red card yesterday would back up that his head has gone anyway. Be an even bigger upheaval at the club than first anticipated it seems.

    Your Squads for Next Season

    With the business end of the season approaching, it's time to see who'll stay and who'll go for next season. For Crewe: GOALKEEPERS: William Jaaskelainen: UNDER CONTRACT (2022) - Had some time out of the side after a string of poor performances over Christmas but will more than likely be our...

    Who is the worst player to wear your team's shirt?

    Col was 5th choice striker behind Hulse, Ashton, Jones and Jack and was struggling with fitness. Andy White was a completely different type of player so we exchanged both players on loan initially. White was poor in his brief loan spell with us in League One. For some reason though, we gave him...

    Who is the worst player to wear your team's shirt?

    Pavol Suhaj, Cameron Park and Chris Atkinson comfortably the top 3 for me given how their careers panned out afterwards. Special mention to other shite like Mesca, Kevin O'Connor, Danny Haynes, Andy White and Darren Moss as well.

    6th March Match Thread

    Keeping situation is a mess. Neither of these keepers are League One standard and it's the #1 priority next season to sign a competent keeper at this level. However, both are under contract next season. One has to be bombed out in my opinion but there's no way we'll do that and that's why we'll...

    Stickied League 1 Transfer Rumours/Confirmed Transfers 20/21

    Cant see us selling Kirk to a club in the same division. We've very rarely done that with our best players. We did it with Colclough but Wigan were about to go 2 divisions higher than us. Kirk deserves a chance in the Championship anyway. And I think he'll only leave us for that level.

    Stickied League 1 Transfer Rumours/Confirmed Transfers 20/21

    You also have to factor in the fact we've had Pickering at this club since he was a child. 10-15 years development and it seems he's going for a pittance compared to other players of his ilk, some of whom didn't even come from their club's respective academies. Didn't expect the money Luton got...

    Expect Pickering deal to go through today or tomorrow as mentioned above and can see us bringing in a striker on loan too.

    Stickied League 1 Transfer Rumours/Confirmed Transfers 20/21

    The fact Artell got a lot of the current core of the squad to sign long term contracts is excellent and a vast improvement on what that useless prick we had before was doing. But if the cost of extending contracts of our players long term is to set a low release clause to sell them then I'm...

    Stickied League 1 Transfer Rumours/Confirmed Transfers 20/21

    Looks like we're selling Harry Pickering to Blackburn for an initial fee of £650K which is disgustingly low for a player in the first year of a three year contract at the club. Add ons would take it to well over £2 million before the sell on percentage kicks in it seems but if he doesn't meet...

    26th Jan Match Thread

    Absolutely embarrassing performance. Fullbacks thrown in the deep end and are sinking rather than swimming. Porter is absolutely cooked now, to think some of our fans still want us to keep him next season. The bloke is finished at this level and I don't care about his consolation tonight. We...

    Stickied League 2 Transfer Rumours/Confirmed Transfers 2020/2021

    We offered him a 2 year deal as one of our highest earners and club captain and I think you offered him £500 a week more in basic pay. Ray was always a liability in League One for us and that almost led to us giving him a free transfer to Cambridge after Davis froze him out of the team back in...

    Stickied League 2 Transfer Rumours/Confirmed Transfers 2020/2021

    Happens all the time. If a player is doing well on loan at a certain club, then it's quite possible that clubs will either want a bigger wage contribution (hence why we lost Uche Ikpeazu to Doncaster and Tom Hitchcock to Rotherham in our mid 2010s L1 days) or they'll just want to loan them to a...

    26th Jan Match Thread

    Gillingham away for us tomorrow, the scene of the best game of football I've ever watched in a ground when we beat them 4-3 in the 2011-12 season. If we're missing Mandron and Pickering tomorrow I'll be very nervous. And we don't keep clean sheets either. And we definitely need a centre forward...
