    Well what a rubbish honeymoon that was.

    Almost like getting the shits from unclean drinking water, having your passport stolen and then and catching your Mrs going down on the barman.

    Never go to Tunisia. Or marry a redhead.

    Seems he's been like that pretty much wherever he has been tho. It's just him.
    Bet his wife had a great honeymoon with him.

    Digs about the bridesmaids and groomsmen
    Moans about the flowers
    Clashes with the in laws
    Prickly groom speech
    Under pressure already

    I can not find the where I said about us having only two points more than SM team last year after 5 games and people predicting wins on the bounce. But it doesn’t seem to have happened

    There's maybe a chant there...:blush:

    Indeed the honeymoon is over, and the day-to-day grind has begun. Adjustments will have to be made, some of the old friends, er, players, will have to be dropped for new ones better suited to the marriage, other differences of opinion will have to be settled...

    But for all the gloominess at the moment, 3 points from the next two matches will make the first 10-match segment decent, 6 points, very good.

    If we lose against Rochdale we will be in the exact same position as last year. 10 games in 12 points

    It's amazing HOW THIS CLUB MANAGE TO SIGN CRAP PLAYERS every bloody season. Heads need to roll. Awful.

    Those running the running the club get a free pass just because they're not footballers. Well that needs to stop too.

    Problem is we have changed people and yet we still sign decent players who turn poor

    And just how would you change things, bring in a new CEO hope for a new owner.
    Dave Baldwin, James Mason, Julian Rhodes on his return to the club, Ryan Sparks all took the CEO or similar position who would you like in that seat.
    Not having a go but would give us your views on who you'd like to bring in.

    I like what Adams says in the press but so far he’s not immune from criticism. I think he will do well and there is no way on earth I am asking for him to be replaced but he has to come under the same scrutiny as others. If this was McCall we’d be 30 pages into this thread by now.

    1) not playing the likes of Staunton and Sikora. Now I don’t think they are good enough probably to rely on all season but from what we’ve seen briefly there is no way on this earth that they are any worse than what we have had in the last few weeks certainly.

    2) blundering on with this tactic when we only have Cook to choose from. Surely play similar to when we had angol available and give someone else a go if it doesn’t work? We have a fair few shots in the home games but quality of chances created I would say remains low. We do miss Angol but one player can’t make our whole attack fall apart surely? Change it up a bit

    3) he signed up to this club and if he didn’t do his own due diligence then he is extremely naive for a man who’s been in the game as long as he has. Now the club could give back word on certain things but surely he knew the budget? Surely he knew that Turnbull was here? Something has happened here and I don’t blame him if the budgets been cut but it’s a bit of a grey area at the minute.

    4) publicly slating players we still have at the club for another 3/4 months. Hopkin went down this route and it fell apart whenever we lost a player to injury. It doesn’t work at this level and not any more we have transfer windows. You can’t alienate 40% of your playing squad because they are not doing what you want. Save all that for behind closed doors and not in the media. We will now likely need to replace 8 players who he doesn’t seem to like. All the youngsters are now cast offs. It’s a dangerous game. I appreciate his honesty and he’s strong willed but will it work? We have alot of games between now and the window opening. Why not just leave it and replace them when he could?


    however a couple of things I would be questioning and forgive me i haven’t researched his previous roles but why not any coaching staff with him? We are where we were for the last 2 years and I think this is a Rhodes trick and Sparks has been taught by Rhodes, save money on an expensive bakc room team for the playing budget?

    Have we promised him his own recruitment team but said it costs money so that’s one or two less players?

    Sparks doesn’t come out of the last 12 months with much praise from me if I’m honest. What have we done to move the club forward but paint the inside of the ground and change a few seats?
    Every person he has appointed has not lasted 12 months, isn’t that costing the club money? Any plans we made have now been ripped up and we need to start all over again should Adams leave.
    Our fitness department hasn’t changed anything either. We have more injuries than I can remember.

    it’s going to be a long season at this rate.
