  1. We all know they'll (probably) double their money selling him in a couple of years. Because Juanfran was basically Tony Adams and Martin Keown rolled into one player.
  2. There's no evidence that they're anywhere near agreeing compensation (or that Bruce's resignation has been accepted). He's clearly costing more than they expected, so it's not entirely out of the question. Who knows what happens if it's true though.
  3. ...Why didn’t they just say that at the time? Arsenal are weird.
  4. Those days of adding a whole pound coin to a bid seem extravagant now.
  5. I suspect that Brexit is having a bit of an effect on top of the usual extra fee for being British. Literally nobody knows what the regulations will be next season, but they do know that English players are safe. (The most common occurrence on Football Manager is that all foreign players are treated equally, meaning you can get a work permit much more easily for awesome cheap South American players. I’m not sure that was what they were aiming for, to be honest.)
  6. Somewhat crazily, a play-off match between the two teams. With two games to go last season it was entirely possible too.
  7. I don't think we can get away with an up and coming because there's just not the support in the club. Luhukay was a bit of a tit, but he needed to be brought up to speed about the Championship and it just didn't happen, so I don't see why it would now. I was happy with Chris Hughton, but it seems he might have ruled himself out. I don't really know where you go from there. Not an easy one at all.
  8. These things are relative. Yes, he'd jump ship at a great opportunity, but recently he hasn't got much of a reputation for leaving quickly. He's stayed with teams for at least a couple of seasons, the chances he'd go after 18 games seems unlikely. And there really aren't many better jobs available to him. He was almost certainly the highest paid manager in the Championship because he'd be better at negotiating than Chansiri is and he's definitely happy to pay a manager good money, so it's very unlikely he'd get a better offer in the Championship, and nobody but a complete mental would offer him a Premier League job, he just can't manage at that level. I am now aware that I disregarded the fact there is a complete mental who would offer him a Premier League job.
  9. For people who don't really get why Wednesday fans are so annoyed he's going, it is partly that the club needed someone who knows how the behind-the-scenes aspects of football works. He definitely brought that. And it was a relief getting someone in who understood the Championship too, because Jos Luhukay didn't have a clue what it was like. (And openly admitted it, too.) He made silly mistakes, fully stupid decisions. All the basics he got wrong. It was bad. So that side of it made Bruce seem a good choice. But immediately after Jos was fired, Lee Bullen came in and went properly back to basics and got us some very-much-appreciated points on the board. Wins! Imagine. Then we agreed a contract with Bruce, and because our Chairman is lovely allowed Bruce a month off to have a couple of non-critical operations and go and watch cricket in the Carribbean, just because he'd had a rough year. We made do with his assistants, who didn't really set the world alight and he just turned up at the end of the transfer window, panic signed a couple of players on loan from (cough) Newcastle. All of the January window being spent working on deals rather than on holiday would almost certainly have been better for us, but yeah, our chairman was nice. And now he's done this. What a cunt. Fuck Steve Bruce. I hope he's the first manager to get fired next season.
  10. Amazon Prime Day isn't showing up much of interest so far, Charterstone and Photosynthesis tomorrow might be worth a look. But there are a few reduced games on there in general as well: Hit Z Road - £17.99 - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Asmodee-Hit-Z-Road-Game/dp/B01EZUCJ54/ref=pd_lutyp_crty_cxhsh_1_1/261-2349546-6529507?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B01EZUCJ54&pd_rd_r=093767cc-fcd4-4efb-a7b7-d4b721487146&pd_rd_w=W6UHV&pd_rd_wg=UHIRf&pf_rd_p=4fea4fd1-3304-4ce4-9975-88617826e42f&pf_rd_r=VTK5XKQM6X24KSWT1CSR&psc=1&refRID=VTK5XKQM6X24KSWT1CSR Tail Feathers - £17.99 - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Plaid-Hat-Games-Feathers-Board/dp/B017OW1QHC/ref=sr_1_4?crid=TLB7U4Y8916Y&keywords=tail+feathers&qid=1563202111&s=kids&sprefix=tail+fea%2Ctoys%2C143&sr=1-4 Junk Art (plastic) - £14.25 -https://www.amazon.co.uk/Junk-Plastic-Version-Board-Game/dp/B071DVNZGS/ref=pd_lutyp_crty_cxhsh_1_3/261-2349546-6529507?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B071DVNZGS&pd_rd_r=ccf177ef-af70-46b5-a96d-90e89d2111a6&pd_rd_w=NLobv&pd_rd_wg=0Kzp5&pf_rd_p=4fea4fd1-3304-4ce4-9975-88617826e42f&pf_rd_r=WEVFHR0AAWNXE1A47ZAF&psc=1&refRID=WEVFHR0AAWNXE1A47ZAF Flick 'Em Up: DOW - £15.73 - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Pretzel-Games-PZG30030EN-Flick-Up/dp/B073NSRB9X/ref=pd_lutyp_crty_cxhsh_1_2/261-2349546-6529507?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B073NSRB9X&pd_rd_r=ccf177ef-af70-46b5-a96d-90e89d2111a6&pd_rd_w=NLobv&pd_rd_wg=0Kzp5&pf_rd_p=4fea4fd1-3304-4ce4-9975-88617826e42f&pf_rd_r=WEVFHR0AAWNXE1A47ZAF&psc=1&refRID=WEVFHR0AAWNXE1A47ZAF I've gone for Tail Feathers, which looks a lot like X-Wing But Mice On Birds which sounds like a good idea to me. Junk Art is great though, strongly recommend that. (None of those are affiliate links, so go through the thread in Bargains instead if you want to support the forum)
  11. Nobody plays Hive with me. Sulk. It's very good though. (Although they really could have given it a nicer theme. At least Cockroach Poker leans into the insect theme, Hive is just "maybe insects?")
  12. If the top of the order had given anything it’d feel OK, but there’s just too much pressure for Buttler and Stokes to keep England in it. They’re good players, and there are still runs below them, but it only takes a couple of moments of the pressure getting to them.
  13. It’s been a factor ever since we had that run of 3 maiden overs, it was slow before that but it became static for much too long during and after that. I feel that typing that has become a lot less relevant suddenly. This is rapidly nudging towards more likely to be embarrassing rather than possible.
  14. On the plus side if we win it from here it’ll be really good fun. On the negative side, we’re not winning it from here.
  15. That might work better, but you can easily play the two sides of the game just using the normal rules and making sure you make the decisions you would if it was a two player game. I’ve done it a few times just to test teams. I’ve again not tried it, but there is also quite a big scene for playing Dice Masters online with a webcam over Skype or whatever. They seem like good people though. Join the Facebook groups (the U.K. one particularly) and get the lay of the land.
