Vics keeper looked OK when I saw him.  Very very windy night and only one game.  Forgotten his name...

he is the One REALISTIC player you'd like to trial/sign?

i see very few games sorry to say.  Really can't comment on blokes I've not seen play.  So yes, the one player I'd give a trial to would be the Vics keeper.  Difficult conditions but he did very well.

if you had seen more games you would know that are problems are the defence not the goal keeper

Stu has again had a good season and came second in the fans player of the year!

so to name a goal keeper as your One REALISTIC player you'd like to trial/sign is ludicrous

Scott Mcniven not such a weird choice, he was their caretaker the other season and guided them to BSN safety and was assistant to Tolson before that.

of course its a weird choice - their in the BSP now!

But you don't think we should be looking for heart on sleeve types? My remark about change in direction was in relation to the bordering on incestuous approach to manager recruitment that's run through the club for decades. Quinn, Ward,Sinnott all on a hiding to nothing due to being relative outsiders in their appointment.People need to get behind the manager, the season has gone, and it was poor by what everyone expected in terms of a promotion challenge.But he's going no where for now, there's more outrage and dissent at us finishing 8th in this league than there was at us getting relegated so miserabley last season despite having so many chances to salvage ourselves.Lets see where we are in October, until then we can only trust that the recruitment policy this year will be better than last year.And that we can tempt a better calibre of player as there's more budget available hopefully, as we aren't paying for "lawn mowers" or bizarre signings on over inflated wages and contracts.

but now you want to see a return to what the club was built on (your exact words)

change in direction? incestuous approach for decades (your exact words)

make your mind up!

how inconsistant

This club has been built on hot headed scousers over the years, let's see a few more of them as well.

You were asking for a change of direction this time last year

Out of interest,seeing as you would release the 20 goals a season striker that we got for free after only 7 starts, who would you bring in to replace him?

McGivern? I never said he should be released

Lee has done well so far with his releases and retains - lets give him and Tols  and the board some credit.


LOL

Interesting postulation Ian, particularly from an official with experience of operating with assistants and familiar with the difficulties of running a different diagonal. 


I agree with you ATS for once

it was onside

It's a football match, not a tea dance, you make huge mistakes and your going to get pelters from a paying public.If she'd kept up with play she would have been ok, but it's a case of being able to read the game.And everyone is entitled to an opinion, and mine is that ladies should officiate ladies football, and men officiate men's football. I'm not interested in the politics of it, this I a sport not a council office,football isnt run like any other business.Its just a good job we didn't need a point to get a playoff place.Anf for what it's worth a thought the ref was dreadful yesterday as well, is he also beyond reproach or can it be pointed out they he too was useless?

do you not feel a bit silly now?

it was onside!

I have to say from the video which isn't perfectly in line, however it looks like a very well timed run and onside to me. Defenders really need to wise up and defend instead of waving arms around and appealing.

was onside

Come on then John, where has he fallen short? What did you expect and where can he improve? For the record, the first post is spot on- a season of mediocrity, more consistency next year and he will attain his target grade of an A- this season a solid C from me

Butty I was expecting a play off position - or at least to challenge for one

i have detailed my fears about the management before, so i don't think it will serve any purpose to go through them again now (it will only result in Clicky goading for argument again)

i hope we can be more consistent next season

for me to score 90 goals and only get 61 points is most certainly not a solid C

Lee shows flashes of brilliance and great understanding at times. Some of the performances have been simply stunning, whilst others have been absolute garbage.Sometimes, he can flounder and not have the right solution to some problems  presented. The majority of his colleagues are supportive with some excellent results he has had this season. Progressing to later stages of any cup competion was also a mjor concern and will need to be also addressed.  Hopefully, with further funds being released shortly due to contracts expiring, he may have the money to secure his proven goalscorer, along with some further quality additions and the full backing of the management team.

Overall a satisfactory year, with some encouraging signs. There are some good foundations in place,and this is a vital year for Lee to go on to progress and achieve his full potential. Good Luck

Overall Grade-C+

Expected Grade -2012/13  A

do we have to go over this again?

Poor

Overall Grade - F

No you didn't have to but you weren't going to miss an opportunity to slag off our manager were you.

If you dont want a discussion about the abilities of our manager dont start threads about him

Oh yes because your dismissive shrug of a first sentence and perfunctory second one made for a great contribution.

at least i was on topic

your only contribution has been to try and goad me into an argument



Despite it being his first post on this thread!


the title of the thread is Managers end of year report 2011/12 neither his post or either of your two posts have been on topic

the only point in your posts is to create argument with me
