Surely if players and club officials read message boards etc they have to expect that they may find stuff they don’t agree with or like?

Perhaps there are some that aren’t positive, perhaps there are some that are overly positive...then add in to that those that just quietly sit back, want the team to win but don’t want to get too enthusiastic after two weeks. Let’s face it, we’ve been here before...Christ, Jolley was the messiah and was seemingly Teflon to any criticism for a long time, even if it had been justified.

Surely the key home is to enjoy the up turn in fortune, not moan at people because they’re negative (irony surely in some of these people moaning) and equally, not force folk to be all giddy and tickled pink and just do what we do, which is to support GTFC.

We don’t know if this will be a disaster or a success, but what we do know is, supporting GTFC is what we do, it’s never really dull, often extremely frustrating but it’s inside of us.

Who gives a excrement either way...see you all at Orient

Quoted from dicko995
Im gobsmacked at some of us on here replying to other members topics. Weve just acquired a great manager, and I thank JF and crew for doing this, and yet there are several fishy members criticising other members topics about the acquisition of a great person, namely Ollie. Don't you morons understand that players etc look at this forum, and as we are now into a great future , it doesn't read well when some of you want to have your joke just for a green tick, and have yourself heard, it doesn't ring well, when its a new era, and we should all be aboard on this fantastic roller coaster ride. Who knows whats in store, but I can foresee a bloody good time ahead. The days of Laurie Mac comes to light, and this could very well be exceeded. This guy who has put his life on the line, wife and family included, deserves everyones respect. You don't get a guy just walking in, buying fans gifts out the shop, investing money etc. Ollie has had hard times in the past, ive read his autobiography, and he is a hell of a guy. So, all I am saying is, respect him, believe in him, back the players, theres no need for any belittling remarks, we have a team who are rejuvenated and want to play for the shirt. Good times are here, embrace it, and lets get them stands rock and rolling. UTM


But some people may not agree....doesnt make them moron's....free thinkers....not everybody likes roller coasters and occasionally they do crash and cause horrific wounds.

People may simply have trouble adjusting to the full on PR exercise currently in swing given the PR vacuum we have been living in for many a moon now, all seems a little weird doesnt it ? Definately does to me...feels like somebody wants my pants down.....once bitten twice shy, it will take Ollie more than a couple of weeks of smooth talk for me to drop my pants and leave myself exposed so the club can fck me over again.

I was uncertain of him before he was announced, i am wary of the PR exercise now in swing... ...
but i am glad he has taken the focus away from JF and has certainly lifted the general mood which is a huge positive.

Am i ready to treat him like a messiah and hang off his every word ?   No.............not yet.

Dicko, what posts are you talking about that belittle Ollie? I’ve not seen anything of that nature.


Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

Kingston, you look at topics that IH is about to sign, and others on here slag him off. Theres others where hes been made manager, and they compare him to newell etc, ffs he has a great CV and not someone who we dreamed of, and hes invested into the club, he means to stay and wouldn't invest unless he has an intention to do well, end of.

Most of us just want a bit of success I do not count the non league days because we should never have been in that position in the first place.

When a new manager comes in we all want him to be a success.

This time I believe we will have some under Ollie if we don't I give up and will take up knitting.

No one has compared him to Newell at all, I suggest you read those posts again (or get someone to read them for you)

My comment was that I got all excited when Newell (the last high profile appointment) got the job meaning that, in light of how his tenure went, my judgement of managers is obviously crap (apart from Jolley of course - I was right there) so any doubt I might have about Holloway is likely to be wide of the mark. Mind you I still think he's as mad as a bucket of frogs!


Well I did try to tell you all Jolley was a mistake

I thought you might have already started on the knitting Pete after all weren't you one of the 'in Jolley we trust' merchants?
