Like Nick Blackman then before we sold him to Derby?

Re: Club 1871

The "spirit of the South Bank" died when Elm Park was bulldozed IMHO. A load of kids gesturing to the away fans in Y25 never really cut it for me. That was us in the South Bank once. The difference is we're getting old and sensible now. The difference back then was the fact the away fans ...

Re: CONFIMRED - Dave Edwards

The right midfield partnership can be greater than the sum of it's parts e.g. Karacan & Leigerwood, this also extends to the entire team.

When your players have a losing mentality and have just avoided relegation, signing someone who has just been relegated may not be the right move to help change the vibe around the place.

Re: Building for next season

Cooper was a classic example of Stam letting a player go who wasn't a good enough technical footballer. Yet is proving himself more than able to play at Championship level. Cooper was more than good enough technically, certainly head and shoulders above McShane (no pun intended). His issue was that...

Re: Alternative to STAR?

STAR has a fair amount of financial, organisational and goodwill resource that can be employed as its Board and members see fit. I would hope there are articles of association or similar restricting what can be done with the members contributions - presumably that it needs to be in the interest of ...

Re: Alternative to STAR?

I'm not against STAR but they are definitely "good cop" and maybe there are times when there needs to be a "bad cop" organisation which STAR can distance itself from. STAR can not be both "good cop" and "bad cop", it will not work as it will strain or break ex...

Re: Goodbye

I'm not necessarily trying to judge him now, maybe im not communicating my point right, but our performances under him have been awful not giving me much confidence for next year, and I don't think it would be right to praise him for keeping us up. I think anyone would've done to be honest. Ok, let...

Re: Where does the blame lie ; not the Owners ?

owners to blame for putting STAM/TEV/Gourlay in charge I think they're more to blame for not taking action to fix these mistakes in good time than for making them in the first place and it's cost them financially as a result. Maybe Gourlay is actually good at his job (regardless of what you've hear...

Re: Building for next season

What a great post! I think that we need another keeper who will challenge Mannone for 1st choice. Not a backup keeper. We need 2 strikers. We need a new RB. We need a bone crunching CM who will sweep up, and then start play. We need good backups and subs bench. We do not have that. We need a pacey ...
