When are the board of FFC going to realise that they owe some loyalty to the fans, which they expect of us to the club. I have supported FFC since 1962 and have been through the good and the bad days. Over the past few years we have had nothing to cheer but turned up regularly when finances would allow only to leave games depressed at how far FFC had gone backwards and having to put up with excuses from all and sundry as to the reasons why.
At last we have a decent manager (or should be give him the bloody job) and a team playing attractive football at last. Now with real chances of making the playoffs all we hear is that our best players are likely to leave in the current transfer window.
The chaiman should make a statement that fans are not there just to make up the numbers and that nobody is leaving. Please take the uncertainty away now which affects fans and players alike. We are playing the most attractive football in the championship. Don't ruin the work done so far this season
Sorry but I don't agree, the club is being run well at the moment, things are changing for the better so let Mr Khan get on with it without being criticized every 2 minutes.

Mate, since 1962 we have had a lot worse than this. You stuck through Ernie Clay, us leaving the cottage, Div 4, Liverpool beating us something like 7-1, useless Joel and us not even trying away from home, the mad German and relegation and bottom of the Championship, nice but not a manager Kit, greedy RM and barn door dembele, hopeless defending and shocking keeper in track suit pants. Now we are the in form team, playing the best football in years, the team NO wants to play and your having a moan. Maybe, just maybe mate it's you and your outlook and not the club, life is on the up. It will be a rocky road at times we are good right now and my advice is enjoy this cos nothing lasts

Totally agree with you Phil ( and incidentally it was 10-1, the first leg of 2, and in the programme in the 2nd it said that in the event of an aggregate draw at the end of 90 minutes extra time would be played........)

Think I remember it but not sure - didn't Robbie Fowler get a hat trick on his debut or something like that?

I dunno, I cant really complain about giving something back, Season ticket prices have been frozen since relegation and im pretty sure that if we did get promoted this year as a reward for our loyalty they would stay the same for the 1st season back in the Prem. My boys both get run outs as ball boys as part of season ticket deal. The only complaint could be having to pay for highlights now and maybe some free travel to away games that are midweek could be offered but in the whole I think the club is being run about as well as it has been since Al Fayed sold up.
On the pitch its the best brand of football we have had for ages, I actually get excited now that I am walking to a game and no matter who we are playing I think we can win. The squads the best its been since Woy moved to Liverpool, some young talent coming through and a manager who has taken his time to assess what he had, add some players to it and stayed patient with his brand of football even though it cost us points in its early days, the better we play the more the big clubs will come in for our players, Cairney is premier lge class so if we cant offer him that then I wont begrudge him going, just as long as its a deal which benefits us, £20m is the asking price, pay up or shut up, that should be the stance of a club with a billionaire owner!

Think it was a different game when he hit five against us and not the 10-0 defear at Anfield. What a defence we had that evening- wayne kerrins,brian cottington etc etc. Remember steve nicol being given the freedom of the pitch and destroying us. Rush even missed a penalty!!!
