That is the intention of the the entire thread though. Not weird, just the reason it is here.

Just seen a fans' forum complaining about my spelling! To clarify, I was trying to write notes in shorthand and tweet at the same time with the sun beaming down on my screen. Of course, I meant Jon Dadi Bodvarsson. Two-and-a-half to three weeks were PC's exact words. Needs a rest


Bit weird m8.

Yeah, for bigger mistakes and faux pas, or in the example you've just posted, Courtney mentioned this very thread, so that's why I posted it

Calling them out on absolutely everything is weird and obsessive, I'm sure you have better things to do with your time

When you first popped onto the scene you seemed quite a good poster OMA, however,now your true colours are shining through, you just seem bitter about everything. The local press (your obsession is just plain weird), Club 1871, Clement, the owners, Gourlay. It begs the question if you are so hateful with anything football related, why are you even a fan? you're supposed to enjoy it... :|


Go oxf*rd yourself.

Cheers.


Everything alright at home OMA?

Nice to see following far and away or best performance of the season, Russell Kempson writing a page long article whingeing that Clement didn’t do the press conference afterwards

He is a seriously miserable and boring columnist. He needs to go

It was one of the most miserable pieces of "journalism" ever seen. The guy wants shooting.

Lots of stuff from Friday, Low and Watts over the weekend. Seemingly the journo's are now speaking up for the supporters and all going down an anti-Gourlay angle. Interesting times for the local media, don't think it is beyond Gourlay to ban some of them.

Nothing other than pelters from a few supporters and Friday saying he was obviously joking. Seems like a silly move to even joke about things like that though. He is the first to bitch and moan about how the players don't talk to him too. Wonder why!

did see one of the points in JLow's 'things you might have missed' was that Garath McCleary played on Saturday.

Honestly think that anyone with a little common sense could do better than what passes for journalism these days. Media either sensationalises a load a trivial nothingness or fails to give balanced arguments for what is being reported.

I feel sorry for him because he is a man doing a job and trying to do it well. I really don't want to criticise him because I couldn't do his job. But then I also see it's clear he's just a geek with zero knowledge of football who shouldn't be in the job and that needs help.

Incredibly random but is Courtney serving the longest notice period known to man or is he now sticking to his job at the Chronicle? From memory he was supposed to have left in July?
