TBF he came across well. I have never doubted his passion for the club. A rub of the green, a bit of luck and some reinforcements might see 14/15th but what about next year?

One thing which is nailed on is if AL wins 2 of the next 5 it is his job.



2 wins out of 5? It really is a race to the bottom, isn’t it? Is that really your aspiration?

Excellent opening post, The Fentz has done, and is continuing to do, a marvellous job.  Some people just don't understand their place in the food chain.

There are ways and means around the salary cap, just ask the hippy at FGR. Was a decent interview to be fair to him, but results over his tenure speak for themselves. No amount of talk will change that. I don't doubt he cares and I don't doubt the effort and hard work he has put into the club over the years. And to borrow a Fentyism, frankly I'd have got rid ages ago and retired to the Bahamas.

I'm not massively buying this idea that a third party would possibly wish to put seven figures of investment into the club (black hole) with the promise of investing a further eight figures for a new ground without acquiring the major shareholders shares and having immediate overall control. Why would they? Would you? His concern about non local people taking over the club is a valid one though.

People that say he looks ill, his voice is a bit gravelly, he has a cold, it's that time of the year.

Agreed, looks like JF is taking the cheap option once again!


Not entirely fair, as JF says he's willing to buy more shares to support AL.

What remains to be seen is whether this is more "Championship in 5 years"-type BS from the club.

If he delivers on what he said, I'd give him a bit of credit.

But the club has lost my trust, so rather than being hopeful I'll just wait and see what January brings.



If wishes were horses, beggars would ride.

At the minute, YES. Are you telling me you wouldn't take 2 victories from the next 5?

You need a job/girlfriend/hobby/distraction. You have a genuine unhealthy obsession with how GTFC get on.

I’d take anything at present, doesn’t mean I don’t want more though.

"We are building on the knowledge from last season for next season".
Every season we have to give up on and hope for better the next season.
We sign players at the end of their playing career.
When did we last pay proper money for a up and coming player?
We have a squad of "average" players.
As simple as that.
