    This thread started off about a story of us being interested in T J Eyoma. How on earth has it ended up as a McKay bash session!

    here, here Gareth. 

    everyone bleated on here about when we turned into every other club clinging on to PL status, losing our identity and playing boring football, struggling every game. Me included.

    Last season, despite its tribulations, was more excitement than we had seen on the pitch in 3 or 4 years (odd exception Palace 5-4; Liverpool 3-2 at Anfield aside).

    And we got that by taking a punt on a manger last summer, despite many comments about his his lack of experience of managing in the English leagues etc, etc. 

    Well, this guy has nearly 20 years of coaching behind him. Worked at the biggest club in Europe. Won a World Cup. 

    So I'll take him vs headcases like Poyet or people sacked more than once, thanks very much. Certainly done more than CT or JE.

    We need to embrace this appointment.
    Spot on, last season was quite an enjoyable ride, all be it with a few frustrations, quite a few of our defeats should never have happened and but for them we would have made the play-offs for sure. Who would have predicted that. I am looking forward to see how the new set up works.

    Frankly,Im not that keen on our style of play.Goalkeeper to full backs,back to keeper return to full backs then back to keeper who then hoofs balls to opposition who then get a corner and score from it. Nor a frail collection of midfielders literally being bullied and shoved off the ball.Not keen on dominating possession then losing to basic feck ups-but each to his own.
    Not keen, good God there is no pleasing some!!
  • Oli McBurnie

    is it a bit of the Danny Graham and Leroy Lita 'illness'??

    As I say mate, I'm not saying anymore than that because of libel laws, all I can repeat is that I have no reason to doubt my source and that this information comes from someone on the current playing staff. 

    People are free to believe it, disbelieve it, worry about it, or not worry about it. All I'm doing is sharing it because it will likely be of interest to many on here. That's it. 
    Gary I have been told some stories about Oli and you are not wide of the mark. But he has put in a shift and deserves our support but he needs to be careful or he could go down the wrong road.

    The only person I want to hear about talking transfers is Potter. He has said he won’t sign players for the sake of it and will only go for a player if they improve what he has got.
    For what it’s worth we know we are not going to be spending what people want and we need to accept it.
    Personally I think Lawrence Shankland would be worth a gamble if he’s available for 500k. 
    Squad is threadbare & has been for quite some time now, Potter will not be inclined to stay long if he does not receive backing for the transfers he requires to progress. It's already happened at least once that we know of
    Potter is building a good reputation, if i was a club chairman seeing what he is doing with out a real sqaud and no support from his board, i would be speaking to him now . i bet someone is!

    From what I hear he is really happy at the Swans. Sorry to disappoint you Tosh
    I am sure if he is continually let down by the shysters (a person or persons, especially a lawyer, who uses unscrupulous, fraudulent, or deceptive methods in business.) He will grow quite fed up and become disillusioned, and if a good offer comes in he wil leave!
