    There are many successful businesses in the world where the owners don’t own the premises they operate from, nor do they own the staff and in many cases now don’t even own the equipment they need to run their business.
    Yes there’s costs to be saved by owning things but do you honestly believe if Bradford City owned VP that we’d have made different signings this summer ?

    Name them successful businesses that don’t own anything?

    We don’t sign big named players now. So yes I do believe we would have signed the players we have done.

    To protect and increase the value of the club we need assets. We won’t move forward until this happens.

    If you bother to read it correctly I don't actually quote you individually regarding hoofball l, I merely use your post outlining Parky as an example where folk think all you have to do is 'give 100% for the shirt and run around a lot' and 'be more physical'. If you interpreted my post as pinpointing you I apologise. There are still folk on here who, after two game of the season, are already clamouring for their comfort blanket of 4-4-2 and more physicality. For crying out loud can we give Hughes some time to implement his ideas and get a team to play the way he wants? I agree yesterday wasnt good and it looks like we still lack certain positional talent. But some of the stuff I've read after two games, Jesus wept

    I have calmed down from yesterday. I wanted us to start really well, heart speaking, but head spoke before season started. The above reply was in response to @Bigrod@Bigrod similar post.
    We are definitely going to have to go to the shops again. At least one winger, and maybe a different type of striker. What startling yesterday was the lack of any urgency and forget going for the second ball. I really think we need much more pace in our team. We need fast wingers to get in the faces of their full backs, you have only to get past once and they will be backing off.

    We definitely looked over cautious and nothing came instinctively. In my view that is because we are a new team, we just have to be patient. Our assistant manager needs to advise MH if he is not thinking about it to try 442.

    I like 442 when played properly, it is exciting to watch:) I do think other managers have MH already sussed so let’s try something different.

    Sussed after two games? Or am I having my leg pulled?

    Which League games have we watched Donny and Barrow play BEFORE they played us???
    No let me put you out of your misery.

    Doncaster ZERO
    Barrow ONE.

    Do you really think playing friendlies against tosh with 48 different players on view per game is a guide?

    Hughes has alluded to these scenarios several times in interviews recently , yet one seems to know something he doesn’t? Please.

    Not one major high street chains own their shops. They are all rented from property developers.
    Remember why lots are going bust??? Their landlords WONT reduce their rents!
    I thought a businessman would know such facts??

    Google serviced accommodation mate and be surprised at how many hotel chains etc rent their rooms out from a landlord.

    Eg Premier Inn hotels are a mixture of Whitbread-owned freehold and developer-led leasehold schemes.

    Seen Jakes goal, well worked and great finish BUT look at the Barrow defending. Lets not kid ourselves that we are the only team still trying to gel.
    Poor game management at the end cost us a point.

    Wait until 10 games to judge you said. Your maths letting you down once again.

    You continue to contradict yourself and show the board you are just a very poor WUM.

    I thought that would have been one of the reason behind bringing Smallwood to the club, an experienced old head.

    The problem there Dave was giving the free kick away in the first place……It was stupid to give them a chance to get a “ free” set piece, because it’s clear the ref would give them sufficient time to take it . They weren’t going to do a Donny by taking it in the corner.

    Yes they lease their Superstore near us. I didn’t know until recently. The escalators repeatedly keep breaking down and they are then botched ‘fixed’, until they break again. I was talking to one of the staff, who put me right on the ownership. Needless to say the store owner doesn’t want to replace them. Not only the building, but the freezer cabinets, which similarly have been breaking down.

    I agree completely. Who was time wasting to get the additional time added on?

    Hughes with a well balanced post match interview, lets hope hes right and if in the future we get back on level terms we see the game out.

    I wasn't too worried about the 9 extra minutes injury time as the Barrow co-commentators were saying we should have had the impetuous to go on and win it, if not you make sure you don't concede again and lose the game, we showed first half we could control possession with the ball.

    Thats why it is so irritating Harratt getting a foolish red and a 3 match ban. I think he is that different striker we need
