Bernie's Verdict.


Recommended Posts

On transfers: “On paper they looked good signings but as yet they haven’t delivered.”

 

On team selection: “A year on and there’s no shape, no continuity and he doesn’t know his best team.”

 

On tactics: “We can’t win away or cope when teams change things.”

 

On motivation: “When confidence drops a boss needs to earn his corn and get players and the team up for the game. There’s no evidence of that.”

 

On coaching ability: “People say he’s a good coach but we don’t see that enough.”

On entertainment value: “You can get away with rank bad football if you get results and you can get away with poor results if fans are excited by what they see on the pitch. We do neither.”

Relationship with fans: “He’s wasted a lot of the goodwill he had with some rude and disrespectful comments.”

Dealing with the media: “Sarcastic doesn’t cut it. His attitude is damaging the image of the club nationwide.”

 

And Slaven’s final assessment was: “Strachan needs to do better... much, much better.

 

Pretty much agree with everything.

Couldn't agree with bernie more.

 

But, let's not forget, that he and century got the boot from the Riverside because of his very truthful apraisal of MFC some seasons ago (another wonderful decission by the Chuckle Brothers) and if anyone doubts this, I wll take them back to Steve Gibson's interfiew on the radio when he said............and I quote "certain ex players running down the club and the area"

Slaven never ran down this area, nor the club, in fact he only ever had praise for Gibson, but he questioned the signings and tactics.

That is the reward he recieved for being one of our most prolific goal scorers in the history of MFC. I think anyone who scored as many as he did for the club has a right to criticise where critisism is needed.

 

This simply proves what some of us have known for years now, Gibson is an autocrat and wants to run the club as an autocracy and if you don't like it, screw you and that's why we are at less than half capacity at the Riverside. It's the fans saying "screw you" back at Gibson

 

Slaven has always been truthfull, perhaps it's easy when you're sitting watching, but that does not alter the truthfulness of what he says.

On a related matter, I see that GeorgeW has had a go at creating a new anti-Slaven thread on the Gazette forum. I think he's flogging a dead horse with that one, unless he can get something going with ibby. :D

 

(I haven't got around to changing the link on my home page, yet, so I pass through the forum on my way to the Gazette's MFC web pages.)

I have to agree with what Bernie says.I take note of his comments,because his are football based & not personal.Unlike some others.

Have to concur with Caz.I have never heard Bernie run the club or area down.As for being gaffer.No chance in hell with Steve in charge of the train set.

It's a shame, I know the guy personally and he was over the moon to get that award with ali.

 

He may run the club down with his comments, but all fully deserved as far as I can tell, yet he never runs the area down. He lives in boro ffs!

    • All big games really.  We're in the hunt so the pressure is on!  Great to see.
    • This is the kind of thinking we need at this football club. Seriously though, if you're going to do stuff like this then it should be lots of players of the past, not just Ugo, although I get the reason for him being mentioned specifically.  Most players aren't going to get statues at the ground like Mannion, and Hardwick, it'd be nice to have something for lots of players, and a space for players in the future as well.
    • Give over mate.  You know what I'm talking about, you've seen it as others have.  At least one of the bloody mods was doing it as well.  Is this how it's going to be now, mods acting dumb when things get called out? Can I ask a question, is it possible in your opinion, that some people will end up being reported more than others, but that the reports might not have any real merit to them?  Genuine question.
    • The results today were pretty decent again. If we beat Blackburn on Monday then we're only 4 points behind 2nd placed Bournemouth, who are on poor form and have looked awful for the past two months. QPR are in great form at the moment so seem to be in with a shot of 2nd spot.
    • As long as the people who were upset with the comments were similarly upset with anti English comments we've had from some of our Irish members then I actually don't have an issue with them complaining.  But I'd bet all the money I have that not one of those people complained when it was going in that direction.  That's the crux of it to me, the offensive behaviour only goes one way, and the mods have never stepped in previously to do a thing about it, whatever is now being claimed.  They decided to step in this time though, and I'm certain that it was because it was me.  As it was pointed out to me privately some time ago, lots of people are just waiting for me to slip up and cross the line, and unfortunately, some of those people are mods 🤷‍♂️
