Apologies but there doesn't appear to be a thread for our owner.

Stumbled across the article in Die Welt - use Google to translate. Mentions Thomas Tuchel who I think is very well regarded and would have been a strong contender for the Head Coach if he hadn'thave gone to Dortmund.

A good read - thanks for this. It'll be interesting to see which club they purchase ownership of.

lol :thumbs:

I don't think anyone is seriously thinking we'd sign Barton.
ok - it was hard to find true meaning in your original comment of "???" :)
but my comment, ANYWAY, was on the fact that he's taking the piss regarding a confidential stat, so... :)

Roughly translated I reckon its" your a ****** mate you know nothing"...
The whole thread on this was pretty good, it was basically a bit of fun regarding having stats about players that "wont like it in hull on a rainy Tuesday" or "don't have the heart and passion English players have" or other such immeasurable's that talentless pundits use to try and make something sound more interesting that it is.

Tweets a tribute to Tony Craig:

https://mobile.twitter.com/matthew_benham/status/617372791961219072

Don't think he did anything similar to Warbs, McParland or Forshaw........???

Anyone with more info/time, able to confirm which Bees past or present, MB has complimented over the last couple of years??……

I know he's complimented Moses on recent international call-ups/appearances.......

this bit actually made me salivate! Proper cunning plan stuff

The top-spin free kick on the other hand pushes the ball towards the ground more quickly, making it unpredictable for goalkeepers due to the dip the ball has. Notable examples that Bartek points out in his videos are Juninho, Marcos Assuncao and Ryan Williams. You may never have heard of Ryan Williams – but guess who he just signed for?

Seems like our owner might have left Twitter.

Ok, some people care. I don't see the big deal in a bloke that likes privacy closing a social media account. The club are no worse for it.

I dont think he valued privacy that much otherwise he wouldnt of even had a twitter account. Its the idiots who dont have a clue who have probably made it not worth the grief and now genuine supporters will lose out on a small oppurtunity to interact with him occasionaly

To be fair he did this before when Warbsgate broke last February. He probably just needs a break from the totally unwarranted crap that flies his way on ****ter.

I suspect he's fed up reading the utter bollox from so called fans.
Plenty of it, too.

Some of the nonsense I see him tagged in is ludicrous. "Sign *insert player likely on 20k+ a week* @matthew_benham" and other such witty, incisive comments. All just 'banter', though. :rolleyes:
