Heavens, I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve had insults hurled in my direction by you, Pat, to say nothing of the numerous accusations of ‘lying’ you’ve made when all that I’ve offered is an opinion. Now here you are at it again. My recollection is that you were moaning and groaning about pies, either running out or being cold, or maybe it was pasties, I can’t remember, frankly, but it was certainly food-related.
Deerey, anyone who comes on this board and disagrees with the moaners and groaners, as I do, is given a torrid time. It’s the same for UTI. So please spare me the victim card. If and when you’re perfect, fine, I’ll take personal criticism from you.
As for people not having moaned and groaned loud enough, that would be a sound argument if the moaning and groaning had been constructive. But it hasn’t. It’s been no different from when Wharton was the owner, except people have had to watch their language more carefully because Swann won’t accept the abusive comments that were hurled at Wharton.
Swann needs to understand that supporters want him to succeed. This means appointing a decent manager and giving that manager the free rein needed to bring in the players he wants. Perhaps I’m wrong but this certainly doesn’t appear to have been the case up to now.
Swann is far more likely to listen to constructive argument about the things that really matter than he is to moaning and groaning about pies, pasties, the club restaurant or anything else that too many of here have bleated on about for the past few years. Of course these things need to be sorted and it’s perfectly reasonable to raise them, but all too often they’ve just been used as an excuse to beat Swann over the head with. It was exactly the same with Wharton so why should anyone think it would be any different under a new owner?!
