Re: Gourlay

Your extremely personal hatred for Gourlay is quite odd . Are you a former employee that he got rid off ? The accusation that he is stealing from the club is a serious one that could lead you and Graham into trouble if the club became aware. Rather than posting accusations like that anonymously on ...

Re: Gourlay

Some help needed. Nigel Howe used to be the CEO, he didn't sign players. He would have had a say in determining budgets and signing off contracts but actually signing players was not his job. Gourlay now does the same job. So there are none of 'his signings'. Who we sign is down to Teverenden and C...

Re: Gourlay

The bloke has to be on borrowed time. I have no issues with the owners and don’t think any fans should, we could have owners that pick the team etc but we don’t, they’ve invested (record signing, summer 2017, Moore situ where they could have cashed in) and let the football side get on with it. I wi...

Re: Madejski Out

If sir John had just taken the risk and invested in our great 2006 side we could have been a Bournemouth or Brighton, instead he was scared of the huge costs of sustaining PL survival. I still don't believe all that TV money went out on wages, Bournemouth get crowds of 11.000 for Christ sake. it wa...

Re: Gourlay

Find all the whining about Gourlay a little embarrassing tbh +1 Wazzock in particular seriously damages any credibility his complaints or knowledge of the situation might have by being so unnecessarily vitriolic. It is with no intention that my outspoken thoughts on the situation have come across a...

Re: Gourlay

Apologies if touched on already, but Mr Gourlay recently saw off the marketing chap who was helping with the South Stand home fans thing, and he's since brought in his own man. Worse still, Gourlay's idea of improving the atmosphere is........... A MARCHING BAND! As I understand it this was dismiss...

Re: MATCHWATCH : Watford (h) sponsored by a difficulty to enthuse

Watford will have more fans than us at today’s game. Our fat CEO is turning us into a laughing stock Don't like him but when have we ever had large crowds for early round league cup games? 14/15 - Newport 6,459 16/17 - Plymouth 6,979 & MK Dons 6,848 17/18 - Gillingham 5,936 & Millwall 7,148...

Re: Summer Transfers

Because Gourlay shares the same agent as Walker and has clearly struck up a deal to pocket some of the signing on the fee. The same can be said for the majority of players we have signed under his tenure. The bloke is taking us all for a ride, and pocketing a fortune in the process. There literally...

Re: Do we really have billionaire owners?

Like many I suspect I was disappointed by the level of spending on transfers this season. The cost of relegation to Div 1 I guess would be substantial in the long term.The question is therefore why wasn't more money made available to Clements to bring in a couple of good strikers including a decent...

Re: BFTG - Bolton

We came within a pen of going up. Would have been the first team in history to do so with a negative goal difference. Impossible to plaster over the ravines of some of the seasons results. Promoted teams need a foundation. Winning or losing by an odd goal is a fine margin. Difficult to see how you ...

Ian, we don't need to drop. We came within a pen of going up. Cardiff were bottom, a year later PL. No surprise, and no 5 year plan. Burnley went up, stayed up, now in Europe. Bournemouth stayed up Hudders went up No massive budgets with these teams, then or now. Bournemouth’s budget was humongous ...

Re: BFTG - Bolton

We wouldn't want to bounce straight back. It would be a 5 year plan, remember? :wink: But seriously, re. League 1, doubt RG and BT have the nous for that, and they would not relish working there (nor would Clement, for that matter). So, if we drop, suspect it would all be 'chop and change', regardl...

Re: Club 1871 - the What, When, Where, How, Who & Why Thread

Baiting is 90% of football atmosphere. They should be doing more. Just stood in y26 without the holier/louder than thou mentality. Retrospective baiting of course. However at that point in the game, we hadn’t heard the a peep out of the Bolton fans and the RFC fans in the South Stand actually sound...

Re: Club 1871 - the What, When, Where, How, Who & Why Thread

The South Standers were in good voice at the start of the game, but I was disappointed to hear some of the petty and irrelevant baiting of the Bolton fans around the half hour mark. It was completely pointless at that point and only succeeded in making the largely silent away fans start singing - is...
