Are you Tan in disguise? That’s the exact attitude it seems like he and the club have. Whatever, rebuild the squad on a skeleton budget with our U23s manager, then sack him and hire his assistant. Then sack him and hire his assistant part 2 during the January transfer window. Whatever, I’m sure they might be able to keep us up, maybe, god willing, who f*cking cares.

At best this is gambling, at worst this is complete suicide. Do you even care?
Stupid question to ask, of course I care.

I just remember the old days, realise were in a better place and don't have an entitled attitude.

Those complaining now conveniently weren't complaining in ore season, why we had a great recruitment window people claimed. Anyone saying that didn't happen is a liar.

If we relegate, I'll still be supporting the side. Given in the bad old days we had crowds of 2.5k, will be interesting to see what attendances are.

And yet again, I don't think we're too far off being a mid table side during a rebuild. Start taking chances, we can g

get on a run.

Our on pitch problem is a lack of goals, solving that masks issues that can be addressed later.

We are in a relegation fight simply because we again have failed to address the main that has plagued us for a few season a central midfielder who can dictate the play unfortunately again we are reliant dogged midfielders who haven't got the ability to put their foot on the ball and pick a pass .Because of this our wide players seldom get the service to get behind defences to provide crosses for our strikers .And our strikers constantly have to drop deep to get the ball instead of getting a ball into space and being in the box to attack a cross .Again sounds like a cracked record but I fear we are heading for the drop :bluebird:

Wintle can't pick a pass?

The issue is we lack a striker. Robinson is a wide player, Harris works hard but doesn't score regularly, Davies has pace but doesn't have much of an end product as yet. Etete isn't close to this level.

Put a Helguson in this side, massive improvement.

Hugill would do a great job for us. A few goals and the know how to get the best out of Robinson and Davies. Would also give the opposition defenders a tough game

Are we now? I remember being top of the championship, winning with attractive football in front of 25,000 passionate fans before Tan came in.

We’re at our lowest point in over 20 years, and talk of 2.5k crowds in the bygone era is completely irrelevant. We’re a capital, a one city club. That was never our level.

Tan will make sure we end up back at that level soon enough though, so you’ll get your wish I suppose.

@The Colonel - I think this needs to be a sticky, it's probably more important than today's match. For me, it spells a return to the lower leagues in the next year or two.
As I started it, I presume rewards for a sticky are massive.

You did post your thread a bit before mine but because I had gone through the interview to pick out the pertinent parts I merged the two threads and put my post top of the thread.

To ease the blow I'm sending you 10,000 Credits to jizz up the wall on any bet of your choosing today.

I knew it.
This board is fecked with Colonel Tan in charge and Mehmet TDA picking up frequent competition prizes. I suspect Glos Choo has his hands in the till as well.

This is our last game of the present transfer window, but there are still 10 days left for things to happen. 30 applicants means that the club as it stands does hold some attraction for managers.
Yes that's also true, my worry is what calibre managers are we currently attractive to.:shrug2:

We are going to be relegated :nope:
Yes.

But, then the current owner will put cabbages on each corner and we'll be OK and immediately promoted again.
Sorry I've been rude there, the current owner is not foolish , he knows football and he saved the club.
Cabbages it is.

Warnock in!

Ooh I'm so confused ..
