The Transfer Thread Is Closed Thread

Recommended Posts

With the constant derailment and now possible kitchen related deaths I feel it’s only right to close this thread at 17:00hrs this evening;)

I can't believe there's less than 2 hours to go and we still haven't had any more word on what's happened with the pressure cooker. Our recrouton department is pathetic.

I quite enjoyed the bits where people lost their bloody minds because the club had the SHEER AUDACITY to be linked with a player they didn't like.

 

Also when it descended into crackpot conspiracy theories. Alex Jones would be proud.

 

I was disappointed with the lack of conspiracy theories this year. We didn't even see a return of the old favourite where we're signing an underwhelming player 'as a favour' to a club or agent in order to get a world beater from them down the line.

My favourite bit was when we had a rocky first week in August with the Millwall draw and the passing of the permanent deadline, and someone predicted relegation.

 

I'm pretty sure that they said that they have placed a bet on us being relegated Tom IIRC

 

Me, I placed a bet on relegation, though did follow it up with an actual prediction of mid table mediocrity.

 

Fair play tudders. Do you still think mid table mediocrity or has our good start given you any optimism for better than that?

 

We have had a much better start than I expected (apart from the opening 70 minutes - I hate to think where we would be now had wing not made such an impact as a sub that game). Fair play to TP for continuing with a system that works. I fear if we try to revert back to 4-3-3/4-5-1.

 

I still think we will hit a really poor patch where our lack or creative players will hurt us and we struggle to score goals though obviously hope I'm wrong. If right though I still doubt we will finish top 6. We shall see.

From relegation to 7th, now that's progress. The only way is up. Yazz.

I actually think Pulis is a better manager than you're giving him credit for, mate. I may be wrong, but he seems to have some tactical nous. That was one of my problems with AK... he didn't seem to read the game from a tactical perspective very well. (Or if he did, I don't think I ever saw him make changes to that effect). Pulis SEEMS to be more adept at that.

 

(But I could be wrong).

As a keen cook, I can't fathom its use... My question must be answered before this thread can close!

 

Otherwise it's time for the 'Pressure Cooker Mentioned Before The Transfer Thread Is Closed Thread Was Closed Thread' to see the light of day.

I'm sure I have seen that picture elsewhere before. Without sounding harsh (as that oven is buggered) I hope that is a picture of SmogDane's kitchen, but I don't think it is unfortunately!

    • Steve Gibson's primary concern is to have total control and likes to see the club as his vehicle to give his mates jobs, which vicariously gives him power. Gibson, akin to his Tory leaning ways, is obsessed with power and controls the media by keeping the Evening Gazette and BBC Tees toting the party lines. I don't blame the Evening Gazette sports team, it's just Gibson and the Club using their power to remove any meaningful scrutiny that the club have. The Club have got Neil Maddison on the payroll with his job within the club. Slaven got sacked in that role after becoming too outspoken. Gibson is doing everything in his power to avoid scrutiny. If he bothered to put the same practices that he puts into avoiding scrutiny, into organising the club into being successful on the pitch then we wouldn't be in this mess. There are many parallels between how the Club control the media and how the Tories get an easy ride from the right wing press. The only time when we've been successful in the past decade is when Karanka and Orta took control away from Gibson. Either side of Karanka being here we've wasted money on garbage signings and knee jerked between unsuccessful managers who were either unproven and unprepared to be a manager or dinosaur managers. I also don't like how when Karanka and Orta left Gibson got the Evening Gazette to launch a smear campaign on them. It was very dirty by Gibson. The way I think Gibson views the club is that as he puts loads of millions into MFC then he can do whatever he wants. The mantra is basically that the fans are meaningless and that Gibson is infallible like a medieval King or Pope. I think the Club would be by far better off if there was more scrutiny of decisions, both within itself about appointments to senior positions, like could anyone have warned Gibson about appointing Woodgate and Bevington into such influential positions?, and externally through the media; There were eyebrows raised on here about both those appointments, yet the club saw no issue and the Evening Gazette and BBC Tees didn't scrutinise the decisions. It has just produced propaganda on behalf of Woodgate and the club. We're teetering on the brink of relegation to League One, and its abundantly clear that Gibson is completely mismanaging the club. We desperately need a Director of Football in the Summer to take away the power from Gibson's incompetent hands. Hopefully we can somehow salvage this season so that we're not walking out as a League One side in August. It's incredibly worrying times.
    • Yeah I probably agree with you there.  Wouldn’t be surprised if he went back to 5 at the back and had Coulson as wing back. That way we could still get his threat going forward. 
    • Breaking... We have a New manager!!
