Thread: The hard reality is

  1. #1

    The hard reality is

    Money has ruined football and my club ,so the chances of a club the size of united with our finances winning anything are dramatically reduced. The hard reality is no magic manager that we can afford is going to change that. If we are promoted relegation fights or mid table boredom will be the norm. The odd victory will keep the troops happy .and if you think this post is a bit ironic considering my username. This is due to the fact I will always be happy considering my dad could have taken me to Dens as a nipper then I would be really worried. Time to stick by your club we have been through the thick time to sup up the thin.and live in hope the money bubble
    burst 's but I won't hold my breath.

    There is always a chance that a team like ours can win something, which we have proved over the years. But you need someone at the top who can balance the turnover/overdraft against the product on the park.

    On the face of it, we dont have debt to a bank that can choose to liquidate us at any moment, but we also dont look like we are capable at the minute of even winning the Fizzy Cup!

    And i would love to go back to the days of mid table mediocrity when you go along to Tannadice and 9 times out of 10, i would feel entertained, but i dont see that round the corner!

    No I'm not having that it's all pointless !!

    Firstly if we can get a new board who are astute with a real hunger to build the club back up we have a chance to get back to where we were, the next step is obviously ressuerrct the youth academy and start producing the countless players we churned out under SC.

    Lastly a PROPER management team and scouting system......not a junior class person in sight

    The team that beat Aberdeen in that semi final and the great hype about the club could hardly be further away but there is always a way back once Thompson goes.

    Stats say 1 in 10 women get stalked at some point. Not sure what the stat is for blokes but I think you've raised it.

    Harmony is what I strive for my dear Garden Implement Storage Receptacle etc. Lack of understanding and agreement seem to be polar opposite positions, but if like the poles of a magnet they attract each other's company, then so be it!

    I am grateful for you kind remarks my dear Midlands Middle Eastern Subject. However, our opinions did fully converge by agreeing 100% over Middle Eastern Sanitary Technician's recent post.

    I do occasionally have my own opinions which I also try to express on this board.
