Thread: Raymond in the Courier.

  1. #1

    Raymond in the Courier.

    Haven't seen the paper but the reaction on the Ceres Arab page pretty much the same as on here.
    Except nobody defending him on there.
    Goodwill is rapidly running out.
    Hopefully for everybody's sake we get a result and a performance on Saturday.

    He seems to be crucified every time he opens his mouth.
    But it's the same stuff as any other manager previewing or reviewing games.
    Fans are jumping on his every word, if I were him I'd reduce the interviews to a bland nothingness like is the norm.

    Q - 'Dumbarton on Saturday Ray?'
    A - 'Yeah, looking forward to it, we need to do better than we did last season against them. And it's an opportunity to get over the pain of the St. Mirren performance which we can only improve upon. So the game can't come quick enough.'

    That sort of stuff, leave out the specifics....

    He did make an analogy with the Malta game which is very relevant.
    Scotland didn't get slaughtered for only managing two goals v a Dumbarton of international football.

    If United produce a performance similar to the Brechin one but win by two, then where will be a negative reaction, as the next game could herald another St Mirren type result, he/they might get slaughtered.

    If we come flying out the traps, dominate the game, play some nice stuff, look like a team rather than a bunch of guys who've just met, but only win by two, then that's different, that would give us a bit of hope.

    The trouble is, they are a team of guys that have just met. We've only player a few games this season so far.

    He's said in the tele that he plans on playing 2 up front.

    We've played a dozen games including the Montrose friendly and the two fizzy cup games. So 9 first team games. They also train together most days. I don't think it's unreasonable to expect they have some level of bonding and idea of how each team mate functions within the selected team.

    I do expect that the teamwork and familiarity will keep improving over the coming months but I wouldn't be giving them a "free pass" for being pretty scheite up till now.

    It needs to be a better performance starting tomorrow.

    Agreed

    He's getting pounded on for absolutely everything, it's a little ridiculous. He gets asked questions in his media obligations and idiots online give it "why is he talking? He should be getting ready for the game instead" he's trying to give respect to the other team and be diplomatic. If we do poorly tomorrow then fair enough get on him but Jesus wept our fans (the vocal online presence anyway) are poisonous

    Agree otm. If he says nothing he would be jumped on for saying fek all. Whatever he says is not good enough even if it is just responding to media questions . It's getting phukin ridiculous now. Seriously wonder about some of our "fan" base. Better qualify that before some muppet jumps down my throat, I want Thompson out but there is no alternative at the moment, also things are not great with the team/ performances but support the club FFS.

    Really is getting ridiculous with some. Hopefully get a good win tomorrow to shut the moaning pusses up. 'Mon United.

    Honestly, I hope it will but it'll just be stemming the flow. They'll begrudgingly hold back until another negative comes then they'll be all over it.

    Are you saying that anybody who has a difficult opinion from you is a muppet ?

  17. #17
    Make that a different opinion.

    I think you know exactly what he's saying. People will take his words out of context and accuse him of loving ST or some nonsense. That's the standard

  19. #19
    No need to use the word muppet though.
    It's only forum where we can share opinions without name calling.

  20. #20
    Fair enough I agree. Wish people wouldn't get personal and name call the players and manager too though.
