  1. Do we know Borner doesn't speak English? English is quite prevalent in Germany in my experience. Granted that was port cities such as Hamburg, but still
  2. It is quite normal to compare a new manager to his predecessors, but some are holding him under the shadow of those who haven't managed us - the Cowley brothers. For me, it doesn't matter if we approached Lincoln or not, met their release clause or not nor if we offered terms, offered too little money or control, or whether we never spoke at all. Garry Monk is OUR manager, and I dont see how it matters what other managers may or may not do elsewhere. They could have flopped here regardless of any success or not elsewhere; regardless of whether they beat us or not.
  3. That's my point. Having someone who "knows the squad" etc isn't a necessity, as any half-decent manager will assess and learn the players, and their strengths, pretty quickly.
  4. People talk like a professional football manager who has managed at this level for a good few seasons wouldn't be able to figure out the strengths and weaknesses of our squad pretty damn quickly. If it was that hard to do, we would be unbeatable as no bugger would know what to expect when we rock up.
  5. Hope you ain't just pullin our collective pissers
  6. Topic started on 15th July and we are still none the wiser
  7. Parking in the Players Parking spot. That'll be Nando back on the bike then
  8. It isn't just this site, either, but society in general.
  9. Can the people advocating we sit around with our thumbs up our arse, insisting that we "wait and see" now accept we need to get it sorted?
  10. If we hired someone who had previously had a dozen or so games as a caretaker at Millwall, people would be scratching their heads.
  11. To be fair, I'd say it is part of the "match day experience" - when I take the little ones, part of the routine is getting sweets and a drink from the concourse, it's become something of a tradition - along with a bovril at about 40 minutes in for the Missus It sounds daft, but like I said, it has become a custom, and one of the little things the kids weirdly look forward to. They ask on the drive up if we are gonna do it, and for my money, its little things like that that will see them enjoy the day out and keep asking to come in the future. Granted it isnt the be all and end all, but it does form part of the routine, and I'd love them to be doing the same with their little ones in 20 years or so
