  1. Carlos post match comments

    Sorry Southie, I probably didn't give your post enough attention, without being sarcastic to it. I get the feeling you are suggesting there's nothing wrong at the moment with this comment? Far from it. I just can't put my finger on what's wrong. However calling for the managers head is not the "be all and end all". If we sign a new manager we need to ask the question what can he change, and more importantly why is he available, to us, in the first place? Some fans, who clearly do not think things through beyond knee-jerk reactional postings, call for Carlos's head, yet cannot see beyond what managerial changes bring. They do not see the financial angle. They do not see the process change angle. They do not see the discord it can bring, and do not know or understand the challenges this all brings whilst trying to create some kind of harmony between management, coaches and players. They think sacking a manager is like waving some kind of magic wand, in some fairytale make-believe land, where everything ends up just perfect. That aint real life and that isn't what will happen. I'm not saying stick with Carlos, I am saying getting a new manager creates new challenges, which needs to be overcome before we can ascend again. Some people on here think it's as simple as sacking Carlos, and they haven't got a clue about how this all works.

    Er Erm....no. A post taking the mick out of a complete non-arguement. I think you must be referring to, or thinking of, another post. I can keep this going all night long, but WAWAW so I wont. I can't be arsed if I am honest. The point I am trying to make is don't just come on to OT and start spouting complete round-uns' (rickygoo - this isn't aimed at you. It's just your post I'm replying to). Think about what you are going to write before you post, as it does have a knock-on effect. OT is a very popular forum. Some people think this is the gospel. I hear fans mentioning posts on OT, both at home games and away, and seriously it is breading negativity between fans. Uneccessary negativity IMHO. Do we not all want the same thing? We can all see that things aren't as rosy as 3 seasons ago, but that's part of sitting at the top table of the division for once. Everyone is enttitled to their opinion, but FFS, make it an opinion with some substance, rather than just a random throw-away "sack him" comment. It makes the poster, in my opinion and I am sure in others too, look stupid and then their arguement/post gets lost. So yeah, say we should sack Carlos, but offer something with regards to some depth as to why and who you feel we should replace him with. That's my beef. I've no beef with people on this forum, unless they want to carry this on of course (the argument, not the debate).

    Spelling mistake. I missed out the "e". A typo. I do apologise. I didn't realise you two were so close. Hope you are happy together lol.

    Bear knuckle? I'm not in to fighting large carnivors to be perfectly honest. I'm not even sure we have bears where I live.
  5. Carlos post match comments

    You shouldn't. Believe me.

    I have no objections to people offering names. Personally I would like see to Chris Houghton here, but that isn't going to happen anytime soon. Its those that simply say "sack him" that get on my (.)(.)'s. They offer no arguement and therefore I see them as nothing but perpetual moaners.

    Sad but true, I saw James Brown live twice. Both times as support act.

    Not at all. I am chilling with a glass of Villa Maria Sauvignon Blanc, enjoying the banter. Edit: missed the "ing" off enjoying. We all make mistakes :)
  9. Carlos post match comments

    Hahaha. Coming from you, that is a masterpiece. Google is your friend.
  10. Carlos post match comments

    Ooooh, you win. Well done you. Feel good?
  11. Carlos post match comments

    So no answer then? No back-up to your arguement? I thought so.
  12. Carlos post match comments

    Lol....nah mate. Not even close. But I will not back down to anyone if I feel I am right and they are wrong. Keep going though, this is fun.
  13. Carlos post match comments

    LMAO. Correct. I did. And your point is what exactly?
  14. Carlos post match comments

    At last. Someone with some semblace on an arguement. And that was not in any way sarcasm. I totally agree with you btw. I am glad you haven't resorted to suggesting we sack our manager without offering a replacemnet name, and one with some merit behind it.
