Is there an extra place in the playoffs considering what's happened at Newcastle United today?

Just saw the headlines "football" "tax" "raids" then utterly shocked to see Leeds/Cellino not mentioned once?

gutted to hear newcastle and west ham have been caught in a tax and n.i. scandel worth over 5 millon F. A have said while they are still looking into this it is very likely that MC will be fined and banned for life and leeds are 95% certain of getting a 15 points deduction in all seriousness swindon got relegated after winning promotion due to this. could we make playoffs by default? (really don't understand it myself) will west ham be going down? One ray of hope they seem to hate mike ashly quite a bit so might throw book at newcastle

Could be an interesting few weeks ahead, FA rules stipulate that clubs falling foul of financial misconduct can have points deducted, thing is the the cut off point when the points will be deducted ie pre or post season is the 4th Thursday in March, there are no guidelines to what should happen with clubs who have been promoted.

So what does the appointment of bravo mean? what it will he have on the day to day running?

All our matches will be shown on his tv channel

I have read that he has his fingers in multiple pies including quatar's development in football before the world cup meaning that he may not be offing a lot to us in the time being but who knows, the guy must be a very useful person to have around given his experience at Madrid
apparently his appointment is coinciding with a Chinese member of the board stepping down, if that means anything to anybody

he seems to be more involved in the commercial side of the business so i imagine it will be how we can monetise the brand and potentially maximise oversea revenue.

I too am of the opinion that monk will stay, and I do see the point which cork made about what does he bring on with 20 minutes to go, not convinced swapping a player is always the answer but there you go. We will have to see what is happening at Christmas, where we are, the players he signs and the tactics he is using. Then we could have the same discussion as we are having now.

I think the answer to the stay/go debate is purely in the hands of Monk. When other teams see the situation as one man, in one season, turning round a lumbering giant they will put it down to one man and come knocking on our door. Then it is down to Monk to decide if he wants to finish what he has started.

Has Monk signed a contract yet or could we lose him in the summer?

is Bartley on a loan to buy or just a loan?

Believable0 0Unbelievable

24 Apr 2017 15:33:44
Just a loan, think it got mentioned we have a gentleman's agreement to sign him for £2.5m though, that said I doubt they would sell if they came down and they may well up that price if a bidding war starts for him.

Just looking at remaining fixtures trying to be cup half full and stop me moping around Lol, if we were to suddenly wake up and find some form for the last 2 games. Out of the current playoff teams Sheffield Wednesday are probably our best bet we would need Mick McCarthy and his tractor boys to do us a favour and sneak a win against them then it would make for a very nervous Wigan game if we can stuff the canaries again of course!

Huddersfield have 3 games left with a home tie against Cardiff so they will get at least the 1 win they need, reading have a home tie against Wigan and away to burton so can't see them slipping up and Fulham on fire at the moment so not much hope there, so come on Mick lad and Fulham on last day! Ahhh I feel a bit better now! MOT brothers regards DJ

Trying to figure why Antonson has not figured at all? Monk obviously doesn't rate him but what has killed our play off chances is a lack of goals. I know we are lacking creativity most of the time but when decent crosses have gone into the box Wood is mainly on his own. Roofe wasn't played enough either.

Monk will stay, and our better players, and that he has the financial backing to bring in the players he wants.

Out scored in the cup by an off the bench Wood, Outscored in the league by Bartley (when he was getting games) , outscored by Doukara and Wilks in the reserves, Antonsson hasn't exactly made it hard for Monk. We need goals but Wood has done that up front, its the RW, AM, LW that has let us down, 15 ish goals between 7 of them (Dallas, Doukara, Roofe, Hernandez, Sacko, Pedrazza, Barrow) , our defense has provided nearly as many. The starting attacking midfield need to provide about 25 goals, 10 more goals from them would have given us a much better points total this term.

Bit harsh gumming, in monks own words our style don't suit him so that don't make him a bad player it just shows there's no strength in depth to enable us to switch formation and play to his strengths. How many games has he actually started?

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Apr 2017 15:44:06
Dont think its harsh Martyn, never said he was a bad player just that when he has come in he hasn't made it hard for Monk to drop him again (and he was playing the full 90 as a front 2 in the reserves so no excuses there) . Said when we first signed him that I had looked at the goals he had scored in Sweden and I was skeptical as 8 out of the 11 would have been saved by a Champ keeper.

He has good movement and he hits the target constantly but its not enough to get your shot on target at this level. I've stated a few times that we should have shipped him out on loan to a lower league team to find his feet and get used to English football, haven't changed my mind on that.

Agree1 1Disagree

I agree about putting him out on loan but you can't judge his form from the reserves or under 23,s as there prob the worst in that league this year and I've seen great players look bad in bad teams. He hasn't been given a chance. Everyone was shouting for roofe to be given a chance by monk and looking at Saturdays stats he didn't complete 10 passes in 90 mins so maybe it's monk that can't pick or buy quality strikers as he bought both roofe and anttonson.

Been a long time reader of the site, and thought it was about time i registered! After yesterday's disappointing result, it would be easy to drop heads and think we have failed. I know i did! I also don't think we have been found out etc, we just chose the wrong moment to have a slump. On average in the past 10 years 73 points would have got you play-offs. Even if we win 1 of the remaining 2, that would be 76 points and in most of the other seasons would have guaranteed playoffs. Main thing is now to keep hold of Monk, and let him build on this season.

glad to see you've made the leap from lurker to poster Matt - we welcome your thoughts and that's a decent one to start off with.

I've got a feeling those wanting rid of Monk may get their wish. Not because the owners get rid of him but because he leaves us. I would have thought a few chairmen of lower level premier league clubs and championship clubs with money think he has done a pretty good job with the lack of investment he has been given. I'm sure if ANY premier league club comes in for him he'll be off. Also he's been with clubs for a long time that play in white, he might fancy a bit of colour in his life! 😁

Don't think he's a quitter. He'll want to see the job through.

Hope your right big man. But. he ain't stupid and unless he's backed in transfer market he probably will go and who would blame him. 15 mill in transfer fees will go a long way to the squad and sometimes you have to gamble. Remember Silver and Fotherby?

I can't believe some fans want him to go?
