Quoted from forza ivano
wouldn't it be refreshing if, just once, the incoming player was honest in his interview?

'i wasn't getting a game at Vale, i knew I'd have to drop down a level to get a chance. GTFC are going to match my wages, plus there's a car pool going from Sheffield, so i'm going to save sh1tloads on the petrol (have you seen how much a gallon has shot up?)
Obviously i will do my best, otherwise i won't have much of a career will I? Hopefully Crookes will get injured/suspended, i will play a stormer ,get established, then  my agent can get me a good deal back in Div1.
The fans? Well great they have such numbers, beats playing in front of 500 in the Checkatrade...'

i would have so much more respect for him


That would be great.  I guess it's just like any job interview.  I remember going for one and they used some Derren Brown techniques to get inside my head so when they asked me how my sales skills were from 1 to 10, 10 being the highest, I said, "two".  I thought, I'd blown it.  They told me that they could train me, they just wanted honest people.  One of the best jobs I've had , shame it was only temporary.

I had a similar experience, sat down with my top boss for a brew and he asks me what my career aim is going forward and I just replied "your job", thought I'd been mega cheeky and he was gonna hate me but it worked a treat, I'm now shadowing him and being coached to move up when the time is right. Sometimes it pays to just be honest, people respect you more for it and I think it's the same for football fans, we respect when a manager comes out and just says "yeah we played garbage today, the lads need to have a long hard look at themselves because they've let the fans down"

A boss like that is worth their weight in gold.
We had one who would have you in the office for transgressions and the first thing he would yell was "Give me three reasons why I shouldn't sack you"
Then while you were blubbering he'd shout three reasons at you for you to repeat, tell you to consider yourself bollocked and then tell you to fcuk off out of his office.
An absolute diamond of a bloke who was respected by all.

Many a young lad was spared a sacking in lieu of his beasting.
Then him and the Union rep would give each other a crafty grin.
