    Under Stewart, we have moved to a modern stadium of which we can be proud, are financially stable and have had back to back promotions and a three year run in the Championship. Yes, last season was an utter shambles, but the position has been turned around (despite predictions from some of you of back to back relegations) to the point where we are in shouting distance of a play off place.

    And still you moan and wail...

    If you want to support a club for which money is no object, it's just a short hop over The Pennines to Manchester City. Or, if you don't want to travel that far, try Hillsborough - they splash the cash every now and then (how is that working out for them?).
    Some people always want to look back and say we must have endless sycophantic gratitude.
    Others are grateful for what TS has done to date but want to look forward and ask what are the ambitions of the club?
    Nothing wrong with that surely.

    No nothing wrong with questioning where the clubs going but if you have an opinion shouldn’t you exsplain why you think the way you do? Instead of typing a short negative sentence about the teams finances the players or manager with no train of thought?

    Some people just speak so much BS they can’t see past the end of their own **** pile

    We need a left sided midfielder/winger. Only got Newell. He's gone. Centre back, might need 2 if Wood goes. Still think we need a keeper. Price can go along with Bray & Newell. Summer sort rest of squad out.

    I once had a great pair of boots that got a hole in them but I kept wearing them because they reminded me where I'd been. I'll not moan about the hole because I'm grateful for the boots. Neither will I moan that the stitching has come undone because they were made by the best cobbler in the world so I should be grateful because he didn't have to make them he just chose to do them. I daren't ask for him to repair the boots as I may be sounding ungrateful. Maybe he'll stick a plaster over the hole and then everything will be well again because the best cobbler did it and I must toff my cap every time his name is mentioned!

    So what’s the point your trying to get across Frog ?

    The point is that we shouldn't all be expected to be happy when we're not. We shouldn't have to hide our feelings towards someone because it once made us happy but now it doesn't. We shouldn't have to stand and admire something when it's old just because it looked good when it was new. We shouldn't be stopped from saying something isn't broken when it's is. We shouldn't be bullied for not showing our gratitude when we clearly are. We should be allowed to voice our distain of something when we believe it to be unjust and not have things thrown in our face because once they were just!

    I agree Frog but who is doing that ?

    Seems to me that a lot of people including me at times have a moan.
    Then there are others who feel that there is a lot to be happy with.
    So maybe the ones who are happy with it just like the ones who aren’t should be allowed to say so without it getting thrown in there face?

    But surely you had one boot coming in on loan, and another, ok for the same foot, probably almost certainly later ?

    Thought we'd signed a new midfielder with all the posts. Frog' I've said all this before. Didn't I say a while back do you want to go back to Millers05 or Dennis Coleman & got shot down. But I'm used to that.
