  1. It's a schedule that would have managers of full time professional clubs greetin' about recovery time and squad depth. Tough gig.
  2. This feels like when you pick up a newspaper, expecting to ignore the usual tired drivel, and you find something interesting and relevant. Makes one's day.
  3. Would this be the 10 or so wee drunk diddies at the match, who canny hold their drink; not for the first time at away matches? I hope they're caught on camera and identities shared with all clubs so they can be excluded. TBF, I don't think this type of scenario is unique to BRFC.
  4. You did indeed. And regretfully the 80 /20 rule applies in that 20% make 80% of the noise.
  5. If I may, a minority of Berwick fans TBF Mr Baa; the vast majority are realists [emoji106]
  6. Jings! A polite helpful post on here, who'd have thought [emoji16] Cheers Genaro [emoji106] I must say, I was assuming it'd be midweek. Hope springs eternal.
  7. Nope. Even till 1st transfer window. If someone throws a massive wad at him, I couldn't blame him; but do Albion Rovers have massive wads to chuck?
  8. Yep, I've tended to get steamed up about stuff not coming from official sources, but if players leap straight on social media, what can you do. Bad patter from players mind. More to the point, is he any guid?!
  9. Jings, 2006, I know, we all feel the pain; it's been hard re-setting 'personal targets' we all talk about pre-season, from promotion, to play-off, to survival. I saw some really exciting prospects in the 20's a season or so ago: and now, no reserve team. It's where we are. We either accept it, work effing hard together to stop the rot and re-set the trend from decline to improvement: or use our energy on angst over unrealistic expectations. I'm actually looking forward to setting them again, once we all know who we have in the squad. Cooler heads prevail; eventually.
  10. The football industry is one of results, knee-jerk decisions motivated by the desire for immediate success. With the notable exception of Man U and Sir Alex. Do you really think the Club is, or will be soon, in a position to deliver immediate promotion? Even with agitating cuboids and kicking bottoms?
  11. We're on the same page DL, both hoping that the new board which is developing, and will grow with more people with complementary acumen. You're point is well made 're investors wanting a say in how the money is spent. I would say, I would support that if an investor/ group came up with the £200k plus that would be needed to allow us to compete. Less than that and it'd be bickering over scraps. I do think that when JB and the Operations Group get their teeth into turning our model from a legacy loss-making one, to at least a break-even one, it stands to reason we become more attractive for investors. I'm a believer....[emoji6]
  12. You're absolutely fair in much if what you say here DL; we all hurt deeply at the horrible end off the season and desparately want a competitive group of players. My reading us that if the board had some good news on signings, we'd know about it. Having difficulty attracting good players to the club is nothing new; it's just got even tougher given our new league status and, righr again, it's still down to money. Where I kinda differ, if I may, is your belief that a critical qualification for a Company Director is a sack of cash to invest. For me it's commitment, desire to succeed and business acumen to underpin a sound strategy in close collaboration with the other Directors. Personally, if people with none of the above, except a sack of cash and little business sense, occupied any Board, I wouldn't be investing in that company. The Board statement gave the credentials of the two new directors in relation to seeking to secure external funding, and that ambition works for me. I'll be doing all I can to help and support them. Given the war chests already in place at other LL clubs, I'm worried too that we're probably struggling to sign players, but its not a surprise. We're playing catch up, and all I can see ahead is the need for patience to allow the financial and squad rebuilding to take place. I'm just not sure you're the patient type Mr Lodger.
