Now i think we havnt done ok during the

Recommended Posts

I stated the other day that i thought we'd be able to look back at our aquisitions during the summer window and say that we'd done ok.

 

at the time we'd had purchased duff and martins only and there was plenty time to bring in players for the other positions that needed filling. I was also trying to stay positive as the club does occasionally leave me 'pleasantly surprised' with its transfer dealings.

 

now that the transfer window has closed and sum of our dealings is a midfielder, a striker, another striker (on loan) and a midfielder (who can also play as a striker) i wish to retract my previous statement and i now wish to officially state that we have done SHITE.

 

i realise that we dont have unlimited funds and that some players simply might not wish to come to St James Park but still....

 

 

:rolleyes:

Our funds being limited is the very reason we had to be more canny in our dealings than we were this time last year. Do we ever learn from our mistakes? Rhetorical question btw :rolleyes:

Surely rule number 1 is to start with a decent manager, especially if funds are short? Roeder has absolutely no pedigree in the transfer market and I bet there are a few more people worried now about his track record of getting teams relegated in his second year.

 

All of this is Shepherd's doing ultimately of course; as Alex says, he has proved time and time again that he is incapable of learning from his mistakes. And with the rife nepotism running through the club, I can't see things improving. :rolleyes:

 

I really am not looking forward to this season now in the slightest.

Who backed Souness? Come on, who did it?

 

You did Gemmill. That's the crux of the problem.

 

Westwood etc etc

Yeah, but what have your qualifications to do with it.

Apologies are a sign of weakness.  I learnt that from John Wayne.

I thought that was Ming the Merciless?

 

Or did he say that tears were a sign of weakness? (in humans)
