Today's PH quote in the Tellywag:

With some of Town's Conference rivals already doing business – it may prompt Hurst to act sooner rather than later.

He added: "I know people want to see players coming in, and that's human nature.

"What I would say is that I would like them to get behind the players that are here.

"Above all we have to bring people in who are willing to buy in to what we are trying to do this season."


Yes Paul, can you please provide us with the sort of start to a game that doesn't turn BP into a morgue and there might be a more positive response from the stands. It also might help if you spent more time talking up our club rather than talking up the opposition.

Encouraging the fans to get behind the current squad is a dig? Since when?

Have I slipped into an alternate universe or something?

Well, the obvious implication is that the fans are currently not doing that, so it is a dig.





"There are places I'll remember
All my life, though some have changed
Some forever, not for better
Some have gone, and some remain
All these places had their moments
With lovers and friends, I still can recall
Some are dead, and some are living
In my life, I've loved them all."

It's a veiled dig in my opinion.

I see he has also mentioned only bringing players that will make a difference. No excrement Sherlock, there wouldn't be a point otherwise.

Maybe we will get another Watson or Walker like the last time he said it.

I may be getting slightly paranoid about this but both the Chairman and the Manager seem to be pretty negative about the supporters in equal measure. Last time I looked, it's about 17 seasons since we achieved a promotion! Give us something to be positive about - not dreary, dull, uninspiring, negative crap both on the pitch and in your interviews.

Just shows how they've split the fans.

Damage has been done already, so whatever they say, it won't wash anymore.

That's the way I see it, and IMO it was a little sarcastic dig by hurst
