  1. He was very opposed to the life bans on Swan and co, and played a part in getting the life bans lifted through his newspaper column. Matt Busby did the most of course. JG was a great admirer of Swan as a player and wrote to the foreword to Swan's book.
  2. Given how the finances were reported a few months ago, DM is lucky that we suddenly seemed to be able to hire players other clubs at our level could not afford, no doubt partly funded by the departures' salaries. When he arrived late last season, he talked systems and tinkered constantly, as well as making some weird selections and substitutions, and did not improve things, admittedly having to manage remotely for part of the time because he was ill. The wins at Barnsley and home to Cardiff showed what might have been possible. He's popular but he has to do more on the field and, given the players he has, he ought to be fine this season, as I repeat he has been lucky to have so many players, although I fear he has recruited too many to gel a team, esp with Windass to fit in eventually.
  3. When too many players are recruited, it is difficult to put out a settled team. Mistake was to sign so many wing/ forward players
  4. That’s right. Mind you we seem to have a pair of tackling midfielders vs minnows at home, whereas at Plymouth we had none!
  5. He should not have any trouble today with little Shrewsbury no matter who he picks.
  6. As a pattern, it looks better than last week’s esp in midfield where last week, it looked like trouble just from reading it on the page.
  7. Monk turned most people off and it was difficult to support him. However we did not the shambles the owner would make of the succession and did not accept that with our players and limited finances , we were doing as well as could possibly be expected. I admit it. And now we have the humiliation of division 3 with some very small clubs who admittedly play decent stuff sufficient to test us!
  8. Agree game time needed very badly. Experiments are inevitable with so many players to fit in esp upfront but that's DM'S responsibility for getting them all
  9. With the players acquired, we should be certs and maybe still are but it's burden having poor selection of an XI ( too many choices?) and a midfield which depends on Adeniron or Longuo playing otherwise we are still feeble
  10. He may have brought in too many players over 11, who all expect to play and there is no room!
  11. and don't forget the season ticket refund scandal
  12. I still shudder at the end of last season and Reach, Pelupessy, Harris and Bannan in midfield. Pulis had toyed with Iorfa, Paterson or Shaw in there as he knew their kind of physicality and tackling was needed.
