Re: Posh bond

Probably need to wait 5 years for prices to come down. If we get any building work down now the materials will cost a s#!t load more than, hopefully, a few years time...yeah I'm being an optimist at the moment.

Re: Glasgow Rangers

Neither side are used to that kind of occasion, or playing in that kind of heat, and it showed. Rangers were the stronger side as the game went on but yes it was very short on quality all round. Lots of players desperate not to lose, rather than desperate to try and win it, it seemed.

Re: A potential danger to women!

No mention of police ever being involved, so what could he have done that is so bad that he was, basically, sacked and is labelled as a potential danger to women? He obviously fell just short of the line when it comes to police involvement, but where is the line?

Re: Playing Budget

We have said before in terms of points, but MD (along with Micky Moore) is worth an extra £1m on the budget.

It's very odd how Dale Vince and FGR, despite being a man/club of the people and one of the greatest human beings alive/bestest most greenest club on earth, seem to have so many problems with people and other clubs.

Do you think they'll even bother trying to get MD?

Re: Ryan Broom

Nor me. As said above, was great when he was great, but had too many games where he was anonymous. MD needs players that will show up more often than not with a 7/10 performance, rather than one who sometimes is a 9 and then gives half a dozen 4's. No room for luxury players on our budget.

Unfortunately for us, the extra income has to subsidise more than just the budget. FGR's money man can cover everything else for them.

Thought both second legs were pretty poor overall. But that's nervy play-off football for you sometimes, where the whole season rests on 90/180/270 minutes.

The good thing on Pack's side is he was never blessed with an abundance of pace and seemed to glide around, so he should be able to keep going for a good few years yet at a similar level, I'd have thought.
