The key is surely Rawlins. He has to go. Deans won't go until he's gone. Neither will Holt. 

Until we buy out Rawlins and have majority ownership in fans' hands we're fucked.

Absolutely nothing about Rawlins' plans even if you're being generous, look good. Very best case scenario we become a Championship club looking to buy cheap then sell players we've developed for a few quid? Great.

See ya Phil 

We don't need to buy out Rawlins we just need to organise most of the other 74 percent of share holders surely.

I'm not even sure we're using data in a meaningful way. I speak to someone who works in that area and he wasn't keen on any of our summer recruitment outside of Nesbitt. 

Begs the question: wtf are we looking for in a player? 

Virtually every scouting report on McCann has  'very susceptible to balls over the top'highlighted on it yet Holt says that's not the case. Aye right Gary.

How come in the days before the advent of social media fans could get a protest organized and yet now we can’t? Is it all down to lack of human, face to face contact? When I was a regular on the terraces at Brockville, sure, you would stand next to your your mates, but you would also talk and have interaction with other fans standing near you. Does that not happen anymore, in the soulless stands of TFS? Is everybody so busy with their faces stuck to their mobile phones or tablets that they don’t actually speak to the people sitting next to them?

A few posters on here are asking “who is going to organize the protest?” Well, to paraphrase JFK, ask not what can others do for you to get the protest organized, ask what can I do to get the protest organized?  Everybody is waiting for somebody else to make it happen.

Take a look in the mirror and ask if the person staring back at you has got the balls to make a protest, boycott, something, anything, happen for the benefit of the club that we love?

The above are questions, not statements.

 

You loved them so much you fucked off, now you expect to direct operations and get others to do the donkey work.

Or if he wasn't so shite. That free header in the first half he put over the bar was absolute guff. 

See also Keene’s header that he couldn’t get on target.

Neither player is good enough but the idea that we have a 20 goal a season striker sitting on the bench is nonsense.

 You made out as if Ruth was really unlucky because of brilliant goalkeeping. When infact he is just shite.

Just watched the highlights. First thought is, how the f**k have we not scored. And not in some, thats pure freak bad luck that we havent scored, more how the f**k has no one for just one of they chances managed to find the corner?

Are we working on this with any degree of urgency? I remember Andy Nelson being wasteful in front of goal and both him and Hartley saying they were working a lot on staying calm in front of goal and finding the corner. He became noticably more clinical as time went on that season.

Every week we are getting these chances and its all very well saying "well we created enough chances to win the game" but thats only really passable if its freak occurence that you dont convert at least one. In our case its a very noticable trend, and so theres really no value in trumpeting chances created.

Watched half of that q&a this morning, right from the get go that was an absolute clusterfu.ck. 

Everything from the Jolly MC with his absolute shite patter, straight away blaming the fans for being to negative and then the very first fan speaker with an excellent point being told "that's a statement not a question". It really does smack of "this is the way it's going, accept it". Interesting viewing to say the least.

I thought the squad that “finished” 2nd to Raith in 19/20 was decent enough, and was sure to win the league if the league had resumed.

Why did we dismantle this team? It wasnt the fans that made the call.

Yup. Look at the Eleven you can get out of this compared to now. Another fabulous decision to dismantle it

In the Q & A Gary Holt advised FFC has tried to sign 14 strikers.

If he had a modicum of gumption he will have talked to these individuals after they turned him down and got a breakdown of every one of the reasons why.

Then he could have stated without breaking confidentiality the breakdown of the reason.

Wages. Job Security. Dont trust the board. Don't rate the manager. Club reputation for example

Getting 14 knockbacks in any recruitment exercise is unacceptable
