A thought ....

Recommended Posts


Im gonna go with yes. Its an absolute no brainer. Considering the club isnt in imminent danger of financial collapse and a fire sale. Though at this rate I probably want a fire sale with some of the fools on the teamsheet.

two titles and a media circus >>>>> playing in league two and selling the naming rights to the Bridge

Another question, for anyone willing to ponder it:

What the f**k happened to the "pugnacious" Felipe Scolari who right hooked an opposing player a few years back? What happened to the man who was going to crush lockerroom egos like grapes to make a fine wine? The man we saw was TOTALLY at odds with the media hype surrounding him.

Just one more feather in the conspiracy cap that he was being tightly controlled.

We were better off the day Roman bought the Club, we had an up and coming Hungry team, a good teambuilding manager and momentum..

we also had the excitement that went with it..I for one am not excited anymore.

Edit

just read Andys post and looking at it finacially the club is better off and more saleable now, to me though better then.

Agreed there. Although it wouldn't have been the proper thing to do, in the heat of the moment after the Liverpool game, I wanted Big Phil to come out steaming, and state frankly his opinion about the Lampard red card, without pausing to take a breath. He didn't (the correct thing to do, but at that moment, I thought he didn't have the same fire that many of the fans shared).

no, i agree. He took the classy road all too often because he was a classy man. I thought people like Drogba were sure to step in line under his watch or hit the highway, yet there was none of that either.

If he hadve shown that fire maybe the team wouldnt have fallen into such a malaise. I think back to Lamps and the team mobbing him after the Stoke win, it seems a million years ago now. I just keep wondering what the hell went wrong

Have to say we are now in decline, with no direction and seemingly no cash.

Apart from 2 title's what was the point ?

Yeah them 2 tiles were crap weren't they .. and that Champoins league final ... awful ;) ;)

We are way better off... We were training at Harlington for christ sake and we had no youth players coming through, and we were close to bankruptcy while Bates was building health clubs and travel agencies.

We are now a global brand, and if Roman wanted to sell there would be a queue.

Things that we should thank RA for:

- All the lovely silverware and success.

- Building us into a global brand.

- Saving our ass financially from Grandpa Bates.

- Letting Ossie back into the Bridge.

Things that haven't been all that good:

- The atmosphere's deterioration at home games.

- Peter Kenyon (a bit of a conflict with the success of becoming a global brand, granted, but his poor decisions outweigh his good).

- The lack of loyalty, or good planning to management.

- The non-existent nature of top-down communication (say what you like about Bates, if he had an opinion on something, at least the fans knew about it).

- The bloody operatic singers before big games a few years back.
