Swann: ‘I didn’t want Awaywego as manager but Coxy came in and said this is the one I want to replace me’ ‘he’s got no discernible skills or experience but has a big pair on him….. can you imagine the grief he would get from people he never listens to or cares about (the morons) …. I mean if we actually cared what fans think then that would be really awkward. Luckily I own 92% of the club and nobody else matters….. and when the time comes he will make a great construction manager sorry I mean football manager….’
Its not like we haven’t signed injured players in the past.
COVID never made him run through managers, never made him buy Jarvis, Mooney, Loft KDT, and a whole raft of poor non league players
It didn’t make him switch from experienced high eaners to the complete opposite with a raft of mediocre players with no experience alongside them
COVID may have fogged his brain to think Jarvis was coming good and running channels – funniest thing this year
COVID didn’t fall out with every stakeholder he comes into contact with.
Why not say the club is for sale and see what happens – it can go two ways – nobody is interested and proves his point – genuine interested parties. There are still several parties looking at football clubs, some closer than others. Swann is waiting for the billionaire to approach him (why billionaire?) but has no intention of selling as he knows it comes with too many caveats associated with the land and the loans and makes the sale pointless.
Good stat, very telling. I expect Cox to see this and have Loft even more isolated
disappointed with the lack of challenge to some of Swann’s nonsense. Understand they have to he careful but the guy is wrapped up in his own self importance to see whats happening to the club.
He’s a walking contradiction and thinks Jarvis is a footballer showing promise – I think Swann would have Harold Shipman in charge of vaccinations
Something definitely not right here, out most promising player and one of the players of the season also one of the squad who we could actually sell for good money (onaraise and mcghaey the others) and in Cox words he had no chance of starting, so we either selling him or Cox has yet again fallen out with the player
It was planned according to Cox – wanting to get 45 minutes into their legsJanuary 16, 2021 at 6:31 pm in reply to: At what point do we consider the chairman is the problem? #201058
threatening to take fans to court
banning food and drink
decimating back room staff
appointing ridiculous CEO’s
appointing baby boy as chief scout
picking the players himself
sacking managers for fun
falling out with lakes developers
as above N Lincs council
as above land owners for new stadium
saying police changed kick off times
boardroom full of non football family members
ex players slagging him
ex managers slagging him
constant whining about covid only affecting him.
strategy to only get youngsters
blaming fans for the strategy above
he needs to put feelers out to sell not just say who is going to buy it – there are interested parties out there (for footy clubs). But he owns the land and will want a return so he’ll put us into non league and then fold the club and develop the land.
If we drop out the league I just cannot see us surviving
Cox woefully incompetent at this level and now Swann chooses this manager to stand by after his sackathon of the past 5 years.
Swann will take us down and won’t even be bothered about it
Spence has zero creativity and is a poor mans karacan – no need for him to be on the pitch, don’t need to single out the players because they’re all pretty bad
Cox really is clueless as are most of this squad.
We are just waiting to concede – sitting deep after 10 minutes
you don’t need goals when you have pace energy excitement. Peter knows a player when he sees one – or if he doesn’t see them he just has to play golf with the father.
Pure geniusJanuary 14, 2021 at 11:49 am in reply to: At what point do we consider the manager is the problem? #200836
I feel for Cox – proper stitched up with a really crap squad with at least 4 strikers who should not be footballers (or part time at best).
Coupled to that he does not have the applicable attributes to be a football manager and is way out of his depth.
Take a moment to think about a local lad played for the club supports the club has the best interests of the club but stitched up by his boss and his own abilities – cannot be a nice feeling.
The Big Reveal…..
All I know is I know nothing. It merely came from some twitter talk about Cox wanting a striker, and was looking at Villa youth. With Cox’s connections it seems apt but sorry tash I am not in the know. I used to have a mole on the board but Swann put paid to all that.
striker problems to be solved by a Villa teenager who is ill equipped for a league relegation fight, can’t be worse than Loft/DT/Jarvis
I give up.
I did manage a laugh in the second half with Loft’s shot and Cordner falling over himself but that was the only bright spot
Clarke has turned into a shit footballer
Agree it is very strange – this from Humberside Police;
The current lockdown means this is a police free match and the kick off time is something we have no requests about.
Our local commander will be speaking to both clubs this week
The chief constable has come out and said this has nothing to do with them (the decision) so something isn’t right here
Credit where its due – two good signings. Hopefully the sheer folly of previous transfer strategy has been discarded. These feel like the experienced people needed to bring on others. A dream window would include a striker who can contribute a few goals because loft is never in the correct position and Jarvis is worse. Like most on here certainly need to shift out 3 or 4 more players.
I’d put Jerry in at CB before Cordner
Yes 3 of the back 4 were to blame for the goals, I fear Clarke is dropping to poor levels rather than bringing the other players up and I would say the string of injuries he has suffered have taken more than a yard of pace off him. He looks a shadow of former self. Shame because I like the bloke and on his day he was the best in division, that was 2/3 years ago and fully fit!
One thing that always comes up Cox uses the excuse that the guys aren’t good enough because they play U23’s football – so what exactly is the masterplan behind the U23’s? Struggling to see the merits in the model
Sanfran – it was a source online, probably linked to the Wilko family so I stated the family rather than the man. When he talks on RH he doesn’t sound like a man plenty of reserves. He sounds like he’s given up to be honest.
Les, we’re relying on crocked players to become uncrocked to the end of the season and to play to their potential with a pretty poor manager.
Cox is bad but we won’t get anybody else in at this stage now.
We’re in for a rough ride to the end of season and I fear the worst
Harrogate, Southend, Stevenage, Cods worse than us? Now tell me the scores when we played them.
Swann to my knowledge is the only one who has come out and said the only aim is to survive, coming from a family worth £300m (granted maybe a lot less now) that is some going. Not saying he should plough anymore money in but he decided to offer silly contracts, build stadiums, fall out with developers, councils, authorities, fans, players, managers,
In the same interview he said the players were exciting (still!) whilst saying we’re 20th in league two so who is going to buy them. walking contradiction.
When he took over he said the club were run like a hobby with no structure – well what do we have now? (Rodwell anybody? golf course player purchases?). Even the bad chairman knew not to just select and purchase non league no hopers without any football knowledge. Just when this club needs strong leadership we have a rookie manager out of his depth a teenage scout and a chairman who is taking the ship down (but is looking to abandon ship).
I can see nothing being done in January
Cordner and Loft were beyond abysmal today. Eisa don’t know what’s happened to him. Someone ask McAtee to name all these clubs lining up to sign him.
Bedeau Beestin Green ineffectual, Clarke really poor game. all in all really bad against a pretty poor team.
I don’t agree with Bishop – we do not have enough to survive the drop, relying on players who may be back end of February is not going to fix the shit Swann has got us into
In their defence you would need to be Noel Coward to try and make this sound interesting.
It is a truly awful game by two awful sides. I’m still wondering how Loft did not kick a football from 3
Still look shit.
Stevenage game is massive because its two wins on the bounce which breeds confidence going into Bradford and Grimsby and Barrow games, so I’ll stick with my comment
Hippolyte took his chance well but positionally still all over the place and defensively very poor. An OK game but its the one in five that most of these players play well in. Need to be better more consistently.
Stevenage game is massive
