    It's all designed to deflect from the fact that Adams is underperforming as manager.

    Bit worrying if that’s his view. Maybe a small effort to keep morale up?

    But yet after the game on Tuesday he said we were second best and didn't deserve anything from the game.

    If I were Mr Sparks he would have already done a press release explaining in detail his comments
    Seems like our esteemed manager has him by the short and Curlys
    As @Rogered Tart@Rogered Tart posted it's time for him to do the job he is paid for
    He is no different to any previous manager and would do well to remember it's a results based business and at the moment our results/performances aren't good enough

    I sometimes wonder what planet Adams is on. He's making himself look very foolish. Worrying, very worrying.

    Amazing that @NorthernMonkey@NorthernMonkey sneered at us signing Cole Stockton this summer. Said time and time again he wasnt good enough. 12 in 15 at a higher level this season.

    And here we are with carthorse Cook, useless Theo and rubbish Lavery.

    That’s both crazy for the fact we were terrible, but also it contradicts what he said after the game. Very bizarre.

    I think Adams gets a free ride on your analysis. I bet, actually, I'll put money on it, that Adams had, yes he did, more say on the signings.

    12 in 25 isn't bad for a "carthorse" considering he gets very little support and is flogged to death most weeks with the high ball.

    Would I swap Stockton for the other two? Of course but I'd be very careful Serg, you've got history of looking foolish after jumping the gun on short term form and I'm absolutely petty enough to remind you if it should happen again. :thumbup:

    He's not in the position to dig anyone out. He jumped the gun on pre season form. I mean come on!

    It's a totally deluded viewpoint but I think you are right How, he has to try and find a positive lift for the players before the weekend.
    Have to be honest I find him a strange character :rolleyes:

    Fully agree with you USG. Turnbull made easy peasy signing players he knew ( from old), that were available and most likely cheap.

    No wonder Adams wanted rid. The circle I can’t complete ,The comments of Sparky….” The manager was fully involved “.

    It also shows the naivety of the two previous management team perhaps?

    Trust me…if a manager has a team that underperforms , the manager will NEVER be seen in a good light.

    I will reserve complete judgement of Adams when he has signed his OWN players , as opposed to those given to him , some after being signed in a blind panic, by others!

    Silk purse and pigs ears spring to mind.

    Of the ENTIRE 24, I’d struggle to keep 6/7. I’ll keep my powder dry from now on.

    They are his own players according to Mr Sparks ,"The manager was fully involved"
    The biggest problem with trying to hoodwink someone is forgetting what you have said
    I think a rift is starting to appear between Mr Sparks and Mr Adams and there is only one winner
