Re: Board vs Pellegrini [POLL]

I think you don't understand what that "value" means. Though generally capacity matters very little anyway, the TV rights money is so much more than the gate receipts that a big stadium has no significant advantage anymore. If you look at the valuations of what a club would be projected to sell for...

Re: Board vs Pellegrini [POLL]

Seeing as it's been reported that we're interested in Eddie Howe as our next Manager I thought I'd take a look at their transfer dealings for the past two seasons - Funnily enough it's very similar to ours , almost exactly the same - £118.40m It's where they spent their money I find more interesting...

Re: Board vs Pellegrini [POLL]

With Twitter can anyone off the streets vote or is it a Kumb closed shop ?

Only asking as on Twitter The Board and The Board + Pellegrini are are almost neck and neck .

I'm guessing it's open to all and sundry ?

Re: The Mental Health Thread - (Help Contacts in First Post).

Any advice on what I should say? I'm not that impressed with that random assortment of GPs at the surgery when I've taken the children, and I think I'd prefer a referral elsewhere. Having moved [ albeit temporarily ] to a much larger practice in Elgin I am now experiencing the type of service that ...

Re: KUMB Amateur Photography Thread 2019

Need some advice from you experts. Camera is Canon EOS 60D with 18-55 lens. I really need a lens that I can zoom in from a little distance. I photograph a lot of butterflies and birds but feel I might get better results if I stood back a bit. I’ve read there’s a difference between a telephoto and z...

Couldn't see this happening nowadays. Not the playing of the match in those snowy conditions, but us beating Cambridge United 5-1
It was 5-0 the season before .

Mush -
DJ , Bill Remfy played the Mike Oldfield song at halftime when we were losing 0-1 to Cambridge in a blizzard - we ended up winning 3-1 .
Stuart Pearson - Ray Stewart and Jimmy Neighbour got the goals .

It's interesting that, so far, only one voter potentially feels this is down to the players.

Are they getting a free ride at the expense of the board and management?

The Manager gets undermined by the Board and the bad feelings trickle down to training and affects the Players ?

Re: ⚽ Southampton v West Ham United: Match thread (14/12)

Draw with Saints - Emery sacked
Lose to Saints - Flores sacked
Fall below Saints - Silva sacked
Pellegrini away to Saints - Wins 1-2 and turns West Ham's fortunes around , a Christmas Miracle . :)
