Here we go again, hyper-analysing every single word uttered by the manager. Certain posters did this with Hurst didn't they? It got boring in the end. Respect anyone's right to an opinion but obvious trolls like this Codfather or Yoda (probably the same person) who post nothing but negativity just to wind people up should get suspended from this site.

I am here. I take these quotes and hysterical reactions with a pinch of salt nowadays, although it was a bit like Carney talking down the pound last week.
I applaud MJs honesty

Is it just possible that the remarks have been isolated then reproduced on here entirely devoid of a context??

What's that saying about empty vessels....?

Not exactly the greatest sales pitch when the next home game is a Cup tie when everyone has to pay.

If MJ had said anything more upbeat he would have been accused of polishing waste material. Anyone witnessing preseason would have been able to manage their own expectations down to 'cautiously optimistic'.
After the Whitehouse and and Cardwell injuries and failure to get Koiki in a point would have been brilliant in my view.
Not defending his selections but would people stop hanging on football managers' every word.

Jolley was just being honest yes some of us were expecting a play off place at least,

He also said in his post match interview that this century we have finish 4th once in the LEAGUE and the highest figure after that was 14th.

Very sad statistics so he was right in telling us not to expect too much this season.

I do not think the gates will be effected by what he says they will be effected on how the team plays,

Lets hope they play better than he is expecting and as good as some of us are expecting.

If we do not get that extra striker in 14th will be the best we can hope for unless Hooper or one of the other lads can start scoring on a regular basis.

Quoted from Yoda
Translating that quote it means I have crap players no budget so do not expect much this season.!

I cannot wait to get back to waste another 21 pounds.


And as if by magic the other one pipes up. It's almost telepathic..


I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

Perhaps someone should enlighten the fans about what the clubs expectations are this year then we might not get too disappointed when we are humiliated by FGR.

The expectations going in to the season were way too high. Bloke who sits next to me was saying before the kick off that we will get automatic promotion and then at the end of the game he’s saying we are going down.

I felt the squad was light before Saturday and it still looks light. We had a big squad lacking in quality last season and Jolley got a tune out of them. Hopefully he can get some key additions in today and tomorrow so we can compete. It’s always going to be an uphill struggle when you factor in how the club has been run, but my hope is Jolley is a good coach and will be able to build a team on the budget. I think we will probably end up mid table.
