Re: Summer 2020 transfers

Yes - meant Jake Wright! Just someone of that ilk on loan. I don’t think any of the players we have are talkers at the back - they have been signed based on physical stats but we need someone more tactically astute.

Re: Summer 2020 transfers

Greenidge, Taft and Delaney seems somewhat unnecessary for left footed centre halves. I understand what you're saying but if you're playing a back three - as we machine-tooled the squad to do - then you'd want six, with three of them to be lefties. Taft is the established D4 player, Greenidge the M...

Re: Summer 2020 transfers

Assuming we are now at our squad cap I’d still be looking for a proper centre half and if needs be I’d rip up the contract of one of the current crop to facilitate it.

Re: Pragmatism vs Perseverance

If we have to abandon the Evatt project I suspect the type of manager we need won’t work for Phoenix. He’s just as culpable in any case. Look at the signings: Goalkeeper- good shot stopper but as predicted decision making looks iffy and I noticed several times he was arguing with defenders yesterday...

Re: Pragmatism vs Perseverance

We’ve not even got the fans in the ground giving stick, booing - evatt/Phoenix signed every single player - there are no excuses for this! He could be the first manager we’ve ever had potted without a game in front of fans. It’s woeful.

Re: Summer 2020 transfers

Well they both looked shite to me. Is that the the basis of a money ball signing then? Utter shite but we may be able to flog them anyway?

Re: Pragmatism vs Perseverance

I’m not seeing it. Gone by the end of next month is my prediction. I think they'll desperately cling to.him no.matter what. To a point obviously, but no way this side of Christmas. We've signed some shit but a reasonable team can be made from what we've got. He might need to set aside his lofty ide...

Bag of revels? What’s this man on? He needs to pick players who know what they are doing - Santos, comley, white, Gordon, all want dropping like a stone.

Phoenix the fecking champ manager player isn’t innocent in all this - we’ve signed some right shite.

To be fecking Frank I’d rip it all up regardless, whatever “it” actually is. There is not one part of our play that looks football league.

Santos is just wonderful to watch.

Makes me wonder why I didn't try to be a footballer.
He leads me to believe that even at the age of 54 a future as a professional footballer might still lie ahead of me.
He’s what could have been for Gerald Cid.

Re: Pragmatism vs Perseverance

Another two defeats and I’d sack him. Seriously.
We’re in danger of dropping again.
