Indeed happy birthday Barrie also not forgetting Ron Ashman who would have been 95 today if he was still with us. Although criticised at times whilst managing the Iron, I wonder how many older fans would appreciate Ron’s steady hand on the tiller right now as manger, albeit he was working with a more reasonable and tolerant board behind him. One thing about Ron he was allowed to manage without too much board interference, or that’s how it appeared back then.
Still. Most of the squad will be in place in the next ten days so we’ll have a much better idea how things will work out in the coming season.
Hoping Barrie won’t actually be required.
Les, I think that we know how things will work out next season pal, just have a look at the list of retained players, six new guys will not turn those into footballers.
It is even worse for me, after watching the shite turned out over the past three seasons at GP, I now find that we have a wooden spoon contender in our Scunny Speedway team who have a weak team lined up for us supporters, with three reserves in the squad of seven, so the bloody misery continues throughout the year ha ha!
