It's fine. Some people like hyperbole, others don't. A bit too gushy for me as well, but then perhaps that's just the way he is?

I'll be happy when the team starts to do the talking, however.

If he thinks our fans were loud at Blundell Park wait until he hears our fans away from home lol

Without a doubt, we have the best, loudest fans around our imagination is second to none, that Mariachi band end of last season was absolutely awesome for instance.

As it stands I am quite positive with this latest 'announcement '

If it becomes a weekly thing then I agree it is over the top except if we are wining week in week out😁

Surely it's all about the psychology in making the players, club and fans believe we can achieve something. Love him or hate him Nigel Madkins is big on using psychology to help players believe in themselves and he certainly seems to be turning Dull City around.

Ive watched a few videos on iFollow and i was wondering who the young lad is shouting out training instructions.  He must be part of the fitness team.

I'm not particularly bothered how he comes across in his statements, how he understands the fans etc etc. so long as  he motivates the players.
He can be a monosyllabic lump for all I care I am only bothered that he turns things around results-wise, nothing else matters at the moment. Plenty of time for nice speeches and compliments when we are promoted

Of course the most important issue is getting enough points to stay in the League. A statement like this is a great rallying call and on top of that, it is a PR building block for the future too. As fans, all we want is to get to the point of safety as soon as possible, but the club has to continue planning in the background (maybe wishful thinking on my part) whatever league we will be in. A well worded statement full of praise for the fans may come as a bit of a shock and appear gushy after all the hectoring, chastisement and plain old criticism in the recent past, but I think it's great that there seems to be at least one component of the management structure at GTFC that doesn't perceive us fans as the enemy..
