    For all that, he's put his money where his mouth is - 70m just for the stadium (let's not dwell on the legality it...) is a large chunk of his net worth in one transaction.
    I've not agreed with a lot of what he's done - Keogh was treated horribly IMO, some of the managerial appointments/sackings, Nick Blackwell - but I believe he's leaving the club in a better position than he found it in

    He's on enough money to do two jobs, so maybe.

    He has lost it, though. There's no doubting his touch but his fitness and mobility have gone to the point he's a genuine liability. So, yeah... It's tough on cocu. He had players sold on him, replaced with shit and I suspect he's got a 'play wazza' mandate.

    The money tap is about to be turned on, though so Benitez here we come.

    I just watched the highlights where we played Shrewsbury. Really weird game, I've not seen one like it before, we had ~70% possession but absolutely robbed 3 points off them. Frankly drawing would have been a pisstake.

    Winning games playing badly, is this a sign IT'S HAPPENING

    Haven't seen a group of our players fully believing in and playing for the manager since 2014-15. Michael O'Neil has done an incredible job in just turning this group into something resembling a team again. The difference from any time in the last 4 years is unfathomable.

    Only thing is, there's been very rare occasions where I've actually see us play anyone off the park or put them to the sword. We'll sort of match the tempo if other teams, so the last few games have been pretty unforgettable, but we've been really fucking resolute. It's comforting to actually trust the defence again.

    In the other hand, the Warnock interviews were fucking brilliant. Moaning like a fanny that the changing rooms had a blocked shitter and water on the floor. He's been notorious over the years for making grounds uncomfortable for the opposition and said last week that he loves rainy nights in Stoke. Doesn't seem the case when the shoes on the other foot😄. I'm also well aware of the irony in this but Middlesborough have already got his stamp on them. Cloggers told to stick the boot in hard early on. Our squad's already on its arse and we've got 3 more injured thanks to yesterday. Colin Wanker moaning about the facilities certainly distracted the narrative about what a dirty fucking team he's already produced.

    Five of our players plus Paul Lambert have got the Rona. Keeping my fingers crossed the players all make a full recovery

    Would be nice to have one Manager who likes to play decent football. The the last few years have miserable.

    We just lost a game to a team which didn't register a single shot on target.

    Rumours the national leagues are going to be cancelled as early as next week? Good news if your local side is second from bottom of league two!

    Also our manager buried the owner last night after the game (where we drew with Northampton without a shot on goal).

    IT'S HAPPENING

    Fans did. Weirdly, ex players and people affiliated with the club are too, now.

    There's been some weird as fuck shit. Twat fan 'action group' letting off a flare during training and setting the training ground on fire, and Lambert (unrelated, earlier in the season) banning an independent journo who is basically part of the furniture (and loved by fans) from press conferences, seemingly without good reason.

    It's all a bit unrecognisable from the club I thought I knew (and used to work for)

    How's Mick doing? He's a Pound Shop Mourinho (great results for one or two seasons and then things turn to shit, quickly)

    Shit football but unbeaten in 7 and a few points off the play-offs. He's basically Warnock separated at birth.

    Just heard there are takeover talks at Ipswich which will see Lambert gone and Paul Cook in if successful.
