  1. Dodds out. Clueless and toothless. I thought we were getting a strong new manager but without McCann we are looking like a side fighting for relegation in the new season. No heart, no fire, no idea!
  2. So far, happy to be wrong about Broadfoot. His interview didn't come across well. His age seemed to be a bit high ... but he let his feet do the talking and was impressive. Gardyne looked sharp although concerns about how well he will gel with the youngsters as he looked a bit frustrated with them tonight. Manny looks to be a find, and then King Doran does what he is good at ... pure class. Looking bright for us ... and as said I am happy to be wrong!
  3. Thing is Brad, albeit a car crash, was at least playing for the shirt ... Kirk is hanging onto his career for one more year and the money. In his interview he really didn't seem that bothered.
  4. I'm of the same opinion Jack. What we need to do is start to believe we will be back in the SPL next season and build the squad ready for that. Not try to do it and settle the team in 3 games once we get there. I reckon Kirky boy is trying to extend his career one more year but is only playing for the money and not the badge! Not a great signing - even his interview showed he wasn't that bothered. Complete disaster in the making!
  5. Surely it has to be better to recruit younger players with experience who have longevity within our team? There is no room for settling a team in the SPL as you hit the ground running!
  6. We have done it with Gardyne as well haven't we? With Doran and others on short contracts it is a genuine concern.
  7. Jury is out on this one. Experience yes, but then I look at the other clubs around us and see their younger signings that I suspect will give him the run around. I hope to be proven wrong and it is indeed an inspired signing. Time will tell. My other worry is building a squad with one year contracts in the hope of promotion doesn't bode well. If we do get promoted then we will be rebuilding again and trying to do that whilst trying to stay in the Prem. It feels a bit short sighted. Don't think we would survive a yo-yo two seasons.
  8. Broadfoot ... Noooo. That smacks of desperation. He is past it. That shows a lack of ambition if he is a player we are realistically looking at. I would rather have Carlo back.
  9. Vaccination does not prevent people spreading it. There are people with second, and even third cases, of Covid even after the jab. The reality is it is here to stay so we have to get used to it. Don't let your guard down even if you have had the jab. The jabs may only be effective for a year or so and are less effective as time goes on. It's not a quick fix for any of us.
  10. I thought pre-season was about getting the lads up to speed. It actually makes the scenario worse because it's a complete waste of time. What did we learn from the exercise? A load of kids who will barely feature in the league can beat an HL side. Some people seem to have a serious dose of the happy clapping!
  11. ***** result in all honesty. 0 - 1 against an average HL side is **** poor. How the management can be happy with that is beyond me.
  12. Yes Sir, i can boogie, boogie, boogie But I need a certain song ...
  13. That's the BBC. I would take anything they say with a pinch of salt.
  14. He's Head Coach not Manager. Hiring and Firing will more than likely be the territory of Robbo. Doddsy will be training, team selection, and on the park management. That's how it works with other clubs with Directors and Head Coaches. I can't see a negative as his appearence came about with a massive shift in form for us. I don't think that was a co-incidence ... our strikers couldn't hit a barn door before hea rrived and then all of a sudden we start scoring goals. He knows the team, he knows the club, and there is no expensive resettlement. It's a win win situation.
  15. Carlo will be coming home as head coach. He has been coaching for a number of years now and he has his little business. Put him under the stewardship of Robbo and working closely with Baz and Kells, and we have a winning formula.
