Is it time to abolish Steve Gibson?

Just as I suspect nobody wants Gibson literally taken to the gallows, to the guillotine, burnt alive, whatever you are taking from this word.

Actually, I was advocating for regicide.  Me and Oliver Cromwell are like two peas in a pod.

My problem is not the title my problem is that we have people on here on complain about a lack of respect in some situations and not others. 

Your problem was the title the other day when you said that your problem was with the title not the topic 🙂

I'm not really supportive of flogging horses anyway, but when they are dead you really might as well stop.

I said if it was a joke then fair enough, that was days ago.

I'm sure you love it getting flogged to death though as you keep getting the attention that you desperately crave 🤡

I thought it might end up being too long of a post but you are probably right.  Terrible thread titles and not using the quote function properly, is there anything I can get right? 😭

Wait a minute here C T makes a joke and that's Ok, ?  SG is keeping this club afloat at present paying wages,for all I know out of his own pocket...And as for outside investment, dream on, Red Bull ain't coming in neither is anyone else...I for one (I ain't the only one) owe SG and the board of directors a lot for keeping us going...There's a lot of clubs going to go under...Some will be a shock, Someone PLEASE take this thread down Its embarrassing

This kind of post is an embarrassment, same old lines of ‘pumping money in to keep us going’, ‘£1m per month’, ‘nobody else would do it’, ‘how dare you question the messiah’. 
Last time the accounts came out a couple of people on here who know that kind of thing pointed out gibson hasn’t put any of his own money in for years.

I don’t particularly want to ‘abolish gibson’ but I can no longer support the way he runs the club. We have proven time and again to be behind the curve in almost every aspect, from player recruitment to fan engagement. I think it’s more than clear we have no plan or strategy for how we want to progress as a club (even before covid). 
 

I think it’s a bit cringey when the gazette still churn out the ‘best facilities in the land’ when they are on a propaganda push. Yes we have a nice set up but they still act as if all the other teams are still training on a field with portacabin changing rooms, we have been caught up with and in lots of cases surpassed. This is not 2005 anymore.

My main argument against gibson is NOTHING to do with money, I actually think we do well financially for a club our size. My argument against him has always been the strategising. It’s VERY clear to me that since it no longer works to just throw money at the best players we have struggled badly. 
 

To put things into context remember when Strachan spent £9m one summer and people said we were buying the league. That was only 10 years ago. We are still that same club now, we need to change how we operate and adapt before we end up in a worse position.

Ah, so it was just a problem a few days ago but not now?  Thank God for that 🙄

Actually, I'm amazed that something that was clearly a joke has been taken so seriously. Also, I don't struggle for attention on here in fairness.  Last night I posted an off the cuff joke, which turned into a detailed discussion about paraphrasing.  If I put a post up just saying hiya, two people would reply with 'no, it's bye actually', Kelloe would respond with an angry face, and Humpty would try and fail to make a funny joke at my expense.

Maybe the title should have been a little more PC like "is it time for SG to consider his role in the long term future of MFC" which basically means pretty much the same thing only more sensitive.

People get irked for different reasons. some on here are very quick to look for something when there really isn't anything intentional yet find other stuff funny when in reality it is just as offensive or plain and simple bullying. Then of course there is the definition of what some regard as bullying and others just "bantz". 

Its a football forum with a cross section of fans so there will be a wide spectrum of opinions and beliefs. A sexist joke is OK to some but mention someone's socioeconomic or ethnic background and the very same individuals are alarmed screaming an "ism". There is always a point where discussions can go beyond what is acceptable or responses go from debating to hurling insults because someone has a different opinion but they are very rare on here and usually from an idiot short lived poster.

You can't please all of the people all of the time. I don't often agree with CT but I don't think his title was anything other than tongue in cheek. I have had worse things thrown at me over the course of my life both verbally and physically as I'm sure SG has.

Even now I can sense some very tall horses being saddled as I type.

It would clearly have been taken as a joke if someone had read the other thread title, which I hadn't. 

That was my original point, for a forum that has had members complaining about a lack of engagement with the club i don't think that title looked good (if someone hadn't realised it was a joke). 

You've got your reaction now anyway so well done 👏

Bit close to bonfire night to be suggesting being burned alive CT?

    • Merson, Gazza, Maradona and Best had their demons but were brilliant players. Jones is immature and has little natural talent to compensate for his indiscretions. Not much correlation between him and the others, IMO, and very little reason for us to spend money we don't appear to have on him.
    • He was banned from driving after a dangerous piece of driving around Glasgow which showed his decision making isn't particularly clever not to mention being irresponsible and selfish with scant regard to others. Thankfully he didn't kill anyone like others in the profession before him have. It's sad that the likes of Merson, Gazza, Maradona and Best etc. all had their demons but were still able to perform and function, the majority crash and burn, destroying their careers in the process.
    • Until we realise whatever another club is prepared to pay for them we can only estimate what we think their value is worth. McNair wasn't cheap and until this season he looked just about OK for the money we spent. We spent a million pounds Goalkeeper now out on loan replacing him with a nomad in footballing terms (Stoj is still on the books but not in the squad). Then there was the ridiculous fee paid for Saville (not his fault nor Britt's come to that). If you think that the squad isn't decreasing in value then you are entitled to your opinion but I only see a downwards trend. The sale of Bamford probably was the defining reality from which we haven't altered direction then we have Randolph's replacement who wasn't to the same monetary value (or ability). Without doubt we have some good prospects but that doesn't alter that we are now trying to buy cheap and sell high as oppose to years of buying high and selling low. I haven't a problem with following that business model, it's how we existed for decades before SG arrived, selling the likes of Souness, Mills, Johnson and later on Pallister etc. but to me the value trend of our squad is a diminishing one.
    • He was banned for 7 matches after attending a party, he's not even made the bench since. Before that he'd finally got back in to the side and scored. He's burned his bridges, but it's not just down to ability. Funny thing is, dozens of players have done the same thing in the top flight in England and gotten away with it without punishment.
    • I don't think Jones has the ability at this level so I wouldn't want to bring him back. Then the off field issues that led to him leaving Boro in the first place don't seem to have improved any at Rangers. We have had some of the best from the Old Firm that seriously struggled down here before in the Championship. That he can't even force his way into Gerrard's thinking tells me where his future level is.
