As alex points out, the club is run badly from a long term objective imo. It's all about an ego trip and the dividends for Shepherd and Hall. We've shown little to no ambition since Sir John Hall left imo. I truly believe there is no long term plan, and the obsession with winning a trophy asap isn't helping.

Regarding what Leazes said about Shepherd doing his job "If he appoints who fans are happy with"  He's more arsed about his short-term popularity with the fans than he is with putting into place any sort of long-term plan for the good of the football club. A good example is the timing of the dismissal of Robson. I see this as a definite weakness rather than a strength.

Agreed, but I wish he'd do the popular thing right now!

I would imagine he would if the money was available, there was someone suitable to take over, etc.

Meanwhile....somewhere in a small Lancashire mill-town....

 

....the player he sold to Blackburn who he called a "cancer" and was slagged off on here and other places for being the "liar", rather than Souness, is quietly getting on with his career with dignity. :naughty:

Can I mention McKeag and Lord Westwood at this point?

Nicky Butt is a prime example - people were chuffed to bits when we signed him! :naughty:

No, you were probably 100% right about Butt, but 200% wrong about Faye, so mathematically you should never comment about a player's ability again (and I didn't even include Luque). :naughty:

Though, I still think that I am basically right about Baros scoring ability.

 

I wonder if O-Nut wants my opinion regarding who is going to win the golden boot at this year's World Cup... :unsure:

yes but he was hoping we would have a good start and give the club more stability [which the fans keep saying..., and you have done ie give Souness time]

 

Me? i'd have replaced him the previous summer
