1. Maynard didn't go to a non league team. Nor have any of our other targets. They've all gone to teams that have a budget high enough for league 1 top end. AL or Mo have a lot to answer for and a lot of our players are below standard. BUT dino has frozen those players out. And I'd rather AL scrimp and save and we have a club than pay Maynard or Mayor 10 grand a week and it go tits up. Menig, Byrne, Bryan, doyle, gerrard all examples of splashing out and then they're not performing and get relegated

Id argue Doyle , Byrne and Bryan did perform. Rather have 3 players like that than 10 like Kokos, Adams or whoever

No wonder @Lee Sinnott rarely posts ITK information on here any more.  

 

Too many people constantly demanding proof.

Unfortunate use of just the initials for Modus Operandi there @singe 😉

Come on @TheBigDog, it's modus operandum... 🤔😂

Plants use the form modus operandii...

Yeah but goin for those type of players didn't do us well did it? Doyle was useless after his injury. Byrne wasnt playin well at all even tho he had bags of ability. Only Bryan that actually shone. And they were all in a team that couldn't get the 1 or 2 points we needed from the last ten games and got relegated. Kokos Adam's gonzales etc are all on 100s rather than thousands so it's no comparison when u look at the financial side. And vera should be moved on by January. Sefil wont be far behind. And the rest will be gone by summer. The only thing we need to worry about now Is keeping dino past next 2 windows. Because he wont be aloud to splash out on players but he also wont take second rate players. We shouldn't be kicking off or worrying about us maybe maybe not losing out to Halifax over a player who isn't good enough anyway and trying to cause a storm over it

It's been a completely wasted season then because of terrible player recruitment. Anyone else but AL's brother would have been fired by now.

Did anyone ever work out what he meant when he spoke of nepotism under the previous regime?

I agree but now it seems we have a manager taking control. So I'm just saying instead of people looking for stuff to moan about, let's jus get behind the team and hope it continues

Signing bad players instead of good ones seems like an interesting strategy, let us know how they get on...

In my first job in the City at a very blue blooded stockbroker there was an unwritten rule that every partner had the right to introduce one son into the business.  Who knew that they and Latics would have so much in common!

🤔 not once have I said signing bad players is a great strategy. I've actually been saying dont make a big deal out of missing out on a bad player. I'm saying a good player isn't automatically worth 10 grand a week. Shez proved that with half of his signings who earned next to nothing then saved us twice. Then we get the billy big bollocks names in on big money then get relegated. Goin all out for Maynard and mayor and clough at whatever the cost is NOT the answer. It will just send us the same direction as bury

Misleading/disingenuous statements about trying to get them aren't great either.

We don't have to look very far. Lets hope this possible winding up order goes away if we cross our fingers too.

I can't work out if your actually trying to be serious, you really think another new manager is the end to all our problems :laught30:

People need to make their minds up. 'AL keeps interfering and playing his players' 'ALs players are shit'. And then 'Dino is doing well' 'we like dino, hes dropped ALs players' 'hes choosing his own players that he wants to play'. But now that's not good enough? Dinos not good enough to change anythin? The main point of everyone not being happy, including me, is interference and below standard players. Dino has stopped any interference and dropped the below standard players. That's pretty clear. So to me that says the new manager is the start to the end of a lot of problems we raised. Am I wrong?

Along with 50% of the football league clubs who get winding up orders. It's part of football these days. Someone on here put a stat up not long ago that only 3 clubs I think it was, had paid their players and on time every month since april, us being one of those three. So winding up order doesn't make us any worse than most other clubs
