    see this is what I do not understand. How can anyone possibly claim that? This is the best bit l \/ How do you know this? The disadvantage we will have over other clubs is by having a manager who is the wrong one for us So we should "smoothly" transition into playing dominant football resulting in gaining "smoothly" more poonts. Heaven forbid if one could come in, shake things up and win all the way to promotion? but where is the logical reason to suggest its a risk? and all this work behind the scenes you so fondly take about is going to transpire when?

  4. Football Fan Violence/Behaviour

    I think it's a bit more about how one see's football. I only ever played School and junior Sunday league with the occasional football club training sessions/trails. But my ambition was to be a professional footballer, I didn't make it unfortunately, but anyway I "see" football as a sport. As an artist, I also look for the "art & creativity" in football, I look for skill, flair and inspiration. I feel honoured to witness such a goal like Brian Littles diving header v ManU or Benno's v Leeds (FA cup) Yorke's hattrick goal v toon. I see a lot of yobs who are at games for the tribalism rather than the spectacle. Sad when one can't see the essence of the game because of the need for Neanderthalism

    As a teenager I went to 2 derbies, the first one at the Sty and the second one at VP. I can only ever recall ever feeling so uncomfortable at a game as the infamous "friendly" v Glasgow Rangers in 76/77 (?). My next one was the Savage/Dublin/Gudjohnsson/Taylor debacle at VP. I'll never ever go to a game v the Scum again. I even hate watching the derbies on TV. They are Scum and the quicker they go bust the better. At best they can exist in a lower league than us.

    what's the difference between calling for Bruce's or Monk's head then? Whoever is manager and it's not "working" (top2) should be sacked anyway. If our so called football men in charge are not capable of setting out a blueprint and appoint the right guy to implement our "football philosophy" first time round (no punn intended) then we have no other choice but to wait for the "next" lucky dip to either flop or work out. what else do you expect? stick with whoever regardless of how many years we miss out on promotion?

    So 100% of us fans don't know anything for a fact. So the 95+% know just as little as the less than 5% The performances are there for all to see

    But being more specific. I have seen NOTHING to suggest or convince me that he is able or prepared to changing the current playing philosophy. When "it" works (whatever "it" can be described as) it's a "backs to the wall, nick a setpiece or Kodjiacianship" that we are pinning hopes on. Against some of the shit in this league it may work. When "it" doesn't work, we piss into the wind and can't get a win for love nor money (over a series of matches). Of all the players he has at his disposal and the "new" players bought in, he dumbs them down to his style rather than frees them up to blossom on the pitch. A lot of fans are clinging on to the hope that "things will change/get better" even though 30+ games and 7+ months has shown not a single change in game philosophy. A spade is a spade, once a spade always a spade. In regard to other managers mentioned. They are managers still on their own particular learning curve, developing as they gain experience and ambition. Bruce is/was and always will be Bruce. A manager with a set philosophy not capable or interested in changing to suit, develop or progress. He is not the man for us. It's no consolation to watch it all unfold before our very own eyes, wasting precious time waiting for the frog to turn into a prince.

    I can honestly say that I've never had a Scum-nose-unwashed-knuckledragger-inbred-illiterate as a friend. All through school "Great Barr Comp" and all my social escapades during Teenhood and beyond. I had ONE Tesco bag friend I worked with but he converted to religion and has been praying for forgiveness ever since.
  14. 17/18 Promotion Charge

    looking at Who's coming up and down to this league I want 1) Dominating football 2) NO home defeats 3) Maximum of 3 home draws 4) 20 home wins 5) maximum of 5 away defeats 6) around 8 away draws 7) around 10 away wins 3 + 60 + 8 + 20 = 91pts

    I posted earlier that Round should appoint someone a bit "Suit, shirt & tie Armani style" rather than Rag 'n Bone Man Bruce. Here's the lyrics to one of Rag 'n Bone Man's songs Human I'm only human I'm only, I'm only I'm only human, human Maybe I'm foolish Maybe I'm blind Thinking I can see through this And see what's behind Got no way to prove it So maybe I'm blind But I'm only human after all I'm only human after all Don't put your blame on me Don't put your blame on me Take a look in the mirror And what do you see Do you see it clearer Or are you deceived In what you believe 'Cause I'm only human after all You're only human after all Don't put the blame on me Don't put your blame on me Some people got the real problems Some people out of luck Some people think I can solve them Lord heavens above I'm only human after all I'm only human after all Don't put the blame on me Don't put the blame on me Don't ask my opinion Don't ask me to lie Then beg for forgiveness For making you cry Making you cry 'Cause I'm only human after all I'm only human after all Don't put your blame on me Don't put the blame on me Oh, some people got the real problems Some people out of luck Some people think I can solve them Lord heavens above I'm only human after all I'm only human after all Don't put the blame on me Don't put the blame on me I'm only human I make mistakes I'm only human That's all it takes To put the blame on me Don't put the blame on me I'm no prophet or Messiah Should go looking somewhere higher I'm only human after all I'm only human after all Don't put the blame on me Don't put the blame on me I'm only human I do what I can I'm just a man I do what I can Don't put the blame on me Don't put your blame on me Looks like they share more than just a few Kebabs
