      Hoddie,  Can you take the same advice you gave me a few years ago and take your spat onto PMs please!
  3. Now Is The Time To Go

    Wouldn't be surprising after that performance.  I was of the opinion that if he got us into a position where we never looked quite like getting relegated then he would keep his job and get the summer.  I thought after the Harrogate and Salford games perhaps we might just have enough to keep our heads above water. I'm not one for knee jerk reactions when it comes to players or managers.  However the last two results and more worryingly performances, combined with the lack of goals throughout the season suggest one thing...we're regressing as a team at the worst possible time and heading one way only. No fight, no dynamic, no ideas and in his star signing Quigley one of the worst players I've ever seen.  Would not be surprised if the board acted to stop the decline before we slipped into the relegation spaces.

    Think it's a joke about how quickly he left the ground? 

    Absolute flecking clap trap.

    When he was moderator, Hoddie once gave me a warning for having an ongoing spat with TNV which after a while he PM'd us both saying: "Your personal spat became very boring a long time ago. Take it to personal messages and stop baiting each other on the main forum. I don't want to ban anyone from the forum but it'll happen if this carries on."  Perhaps he should take his own advice. Nobody likes a hypocrite. Not that I really have anything against Hoddie or JGN1. It's just indicative of how this forum is these days. There's far less debate and more stubborn berating of other opinions and ultimately descent into personal insults. That used to occur between a few users on occasion, but these days it is the over-riding theme.  As for JF, I'm surprised at the number of people making fun of the use of technology. It is a positive step and absolutely essential for any progressive club in the modern age. That's not to say good old man management doesn't have its place; it would be ridiculous to say otherwise. But as an added string to the bow its a step in the right direction.  Our first season of full time football has not been great, but I'd be surprised if any realists thought it would be.  The football has been uninspiring, but the foundation of a good team starts with its defence and JF has that. We're not getting battered, we're not conceding loads of goals. We're just not scoring them either. It's something to work on, but a base is definitely there. Whether JF is the right man to build on it will become apparent at the start of next season, as providing we steer clear of relegation this season then I'll believe he'll get the summer to recruit and strengthen.  But whatever happens, be realistic. Without significant investment in the playing budget and club infrastructure, we are firmly at our level. 
  7. Oops Mr Fullarton

    Over the course of a season there is a huge gulf in quality between top end National and top end North. 100%.   However there perhaps isn't a huge gulf between bottom third National and top third North.

    Facts are that despite all the vitriol towards JF, we have the base of a solid team. We have one of the best defences in the league and we're drawing games rather than getting beat. The problem is simply that we don't score enough goals, but goal scorers are the hardest players to find. We were never going to hit the ground running this season in our first season of full time football and of course the football has been poor at times, but not quite sure what some people's expectations were. JF has made errors along the way but I maintain that as long as we keep our heads above water this season then he will have, and should have, the summer to try to build on the team and improve it for next season. Rome was not built in a day. There's nothing wrong with a bit of stability and I suspect its been a learning curve for JF too.  Don't get me wrong, I haven't enjoyed large parts of this season but **** me I'm a Halifax Town fan, not a Man City fan. It's par for the course.

    Beckham has bought a 10% stake in Salford. The class of '92 are now the majority shareholders.

    Doubt it personally.  As long as we tread water this season, I believe he will get the summer and the start of next season. This was always a transitional season going full time and the BOD hired JF not for instant success but long term stability with a view to building something.  My main concern is that JF has made some shocking and stubborn tactical decisions over the course of the season, and that the team lacks any real identity.

    Greatest player in the world. Probably the greatest of all time. All in my opinion of course.

    Correct.  No progress has been made at all.  But as long as we keep our head above water this season then JF I'm sure will get tbe chance to carry on building in the summer.  My concern is that there is no evidence of what style of football JF wants to play.  Its just all a bit flat and meh. No footballing identity.

    Terrible games between two awful teams. That's all there is to say.  Kosylo's actions at the end possibly suggest there is some truth in the rumours that he's going. Shame because he was the only spark today.
