    Not sure why but no matter who we get in as manager, and most of the time the fans like the appointment, we always seem to be the same. We always seem to be soft and can not comeback and hold on from a deficit.

    Hope the two Sparks can sort it out

    You beat me to it lad.

    Anyway it's like watching Derek Adams side last year.

    Hope sparks and rupp have the balls to sack MH if this carries on. MH send the team out to do that ever again, he's finished.

    Barrow are going to reap the rewards of snapping up an up and coming manager who has been successful in recent times at a similar level.

    We're going to pay for appointing an out of work, out of touch manager with no experience at all of the level, who the game had rightly put out to pasture.

    But at least he's famous.

    We won our first three games of last season IIRC - that got us far didnt it?

    Have a bit of patience and see where we are after 10 games.

    5. Did Stafford wear a wig
    6. Is James Hanson a legend
    7. Is Derek the best a team can get
    8. Tiffins catering standards.

    Unfortunately a large element of our fanbase is stupid, as well as toxic.

    Hehehe

    Pete Wild is at the right club, another small club with extremely low expectations - it's perfect after stepping up from his 'nearly' season at Halifax. Good for him!

    But this talk about him being the next big thing is, frankly, laughable...

    Mark Hughes is suitable for this club. Pete Wild is suitable for Barrow.

    End of story.

    On point 6 James is not a legend, as he did not get a round in at the wedding last week, oh and it most certainly a wig.

    Was does worry me about Hughes and has done since his appointment is his dogmatic approach possession football or nothing.
    We have all seen enough league two football to know or should do that sometimes you have to sacrifice your principles in order to be effective.
    A more direct style with wingers often works at this level it’s far to early for all the rubbish criticism him and the team are getting today but I do hope that he is flexible enough to change things around in certain matches

    Nah, we sold loads of season tickets and got to feel like we are massive.

    The things that really matter.
