Loads of ‘good news’ this week


Recommended Posts

It's not about being overly negative or overly positive.

 

For once, positive news has come out of the club. That can only be a good thing. 

 

We all know and agree that this doesn't mean that everything at the club now is all good happy and rosey. But it's a start. It just has to continue.

 

Also, who's to say those U23s won't be key parts of the team that does earn promotion? I wouldn't be so quick to dismiss it on that front (or say its nailed on either).

We don’t know yet whether these youngsters will cut the mustard and make the grade at first team level - so it’s only “potentially” good news IMHO - we’ll have to wait and see

Not slating anything at all and it’s great to see the young uns sign for another year - very positive - but we need to ensure we don’t get sucked into a positive hype overdrive trap here

 

Now I know the uberfans and ultra positive fans will want everyone to get all excited and point to it as super good news which is fine and I’m not wanting to rain on their parade, and nobody should ever criticise them for getting happy about these contract extensions etc 

 

BUT 

 

It won’t get us promoted or improve us 

 

We need to improve and get promoted 

 

Thats all


Carry on everyone x

It’s been so refreshing the young uns signing up and the new kit.  
 

Most of us are under no illusion as to the task facing us to turn this Club around.  It is monumental.  
 

I’m one of the most negative on Owlstalk because I care.  Like most I’d love to be in the position where the football is enjoyable again and we are ‘arguing’ / ‘debating’ as to our best team.  I’d love it to be all about the football.  
 

Still it’s been a good few days - crack open a beer, glass of wine or a J20 or whatever and let’s enjoy the weekend!  UTO

We signed the likes of Marriot, Brown, Kachanga etc who were supposedly all experienced first teamers at their respective clubs. None of those including a few others didnt cut  the mustard at Hillsborough. So I would say signing the youngsters up is more positive than signing  the likes of  those shower of shiite we had who relegated us, and a lot cheaper and hungrier. 


 

Nope 

 

Whilst it may turn out to be correct that doesn’t mean Kivo should have been burnt at the stake for saying those signings last summer weren’t going to be good enough .

He gave reasons, explanation, insights into why the players we were signing would make us worse


He was right 

 

We got relegated


Im right with my post too - these youngsters u23’s signing for one more year will not get us promoted

 

Saying that isn’t anti-swfc or negative in any way - it’s just fact

I remember last summer when we started signing the new players and everyone was jizzing over it 


@KivoOwlposted (the truth) that the players like Jack Marriott and all the others we signed would get us relegated 


He got maximum hate for it

 

Got called negative, said he was stirring the pot, how he shouldn’t say such things.

 

He was right though 


We got relegated 

 

You were one of them!

 

Positive vibes and all that......

 

lol

I have to mate


I'm forced to

If I don't join in with the jizz fests I'm called negative so...

 

Where are these latest jizz fests you refer to?

 

You've basically started a thread reminding people to continue to be negative. Don't think it was needed to be fair.

I know this is a pre-cursor to you jumping on people and the things they say looking for an argument


All I'm saying is I've been to Mama Mia Pepe's in Hillsborough for a steak and Peroni's and have had many many MANY Peroni's


So.... 

DON'T

Mate I love your positivity tho.

It's just that sometimes your tongue is so far in your cheek that you can barely talk.

Bless you 😃

I am a positive person in reality


I love life

I love this club

I love seeing youngsters sign for us and have a bright and exciting new future ahead of them


All I'm saying is that it's not enough to get us promoted

 

If people want to criticise me for that then that's fine - but they best be prepared to stand up and tell us why I'm wrong and how we're going to get promoted this season by promoting the U23's

We sign young uns up every year. It’s made sod all difference recently. It’s a fingers crossed job not a jumping for joy one.
