    To be honest I couldn't give a shiny shyte who owns the club or who is the CEO .

    All I'm interested in is on the field and that we back our man in the technical area with the players he wants within the budget that's available to him .

    It's that simple with me , I've no connection with anything other than the technical area and the players .

    I don't pay £28 for a match ticket based on what Goathair says , I take my lead from the HC and the players .

    Good to see Goat Hair responding to calls not to keep fans in the dark. I'm always cynical abart these kind of statements and am not sure how much to believe. They clearly had other targets in mind before Stendel.

    Three things he sed ed me thinking--

    1 "In the last months of the season...we prepared for this (relegation) and we had a list of different player targets for each division". I wonder who prepared this list and how was it prepared ? Spreadsheet perhaps. Will be list of targets now be torn up and Stendel asked who he wants to bring in ?

    2 "The German was headhunted for the role. He didn't apply". I wonder if the same procedure was followed by Goat Hair when the monumental c0ck up of appointing Morais was made ?

    3 "This is a long term project". Share it with the fans please.

    Goat Hair has ignored the stats of 29 out of the last 30 managers/HC's being promoted from the Third Division being British with a knowledge of the English game at this level and has gone out to headhunt a continental coach. I am a lot more behind his choice than I was when he brought The Great Pillaker in. Interesting to see what develops ovva the next few months.

    All I can add to this is I've a feeling this is as much information as we're gunna get out of the club and Animal's reight when alls said n' done we pay to watch a game of football. If what goes on in the technical area and pitch goes to plan the other stuff is forgotten about. You only need to look at decisions made from january 2016 as testament to this. Whilst the team was winning no one gave a shiny one. I certainly wasn't thinking about contracts at Wembley twice. I was enjoying the ride. It's only bad times that bring things under scrutiny. I wasn't gutted when we lost Hourihane to Villa as we got a decent wedge for someone with six months left and replaced him with Mowatt who had more Championship experience at the time. However, when Mowatt was shelved by the Head coach and results remained poor I started to question things. However, repeating my earlier statement as a fickle football fan I don't care about the politics when the teams winning.

    They're never going to give us a detailed run down of all the ideas, failed bids, ins and outs etc. It's always been the same whoever has owned the club. The supporters just shell out season after season through love and loyalty towards BFC. The supporters contributions must at least cover the wage bill, a rather large slice of the pie at a football club like ours.

    It makes me chuckle when Goathair said that they had two contingencies in place budget wise, one for each division yet that did not apply to the supporters who payed championship prices for league one football. That in my eyes is not right.

    Totally agree. What makes me laugh is having two plans. Why not invest more effort in the here and now? If the club hadn't thought but what if we go down they could have head hunted someone better than Morais. Also the recruutment in the window should have been all or nothing. All in the past now.

    Thought it was a decent read . I don’t think any clubs give much away about their intentions so we’re no different.

    It is mate but have they learned thru their mistakes? Personally I'm quite optimistic about the new head coach but despite his impressive ideas & strategy i fail to see how he can implement it successfully without the right personnel and larger timescale. If pieces of the jigsaw dunt quite fit then how can you ever expect to see it finished?

    No matter who we have as head coach he's on a hiding to nowt whilst working under goathairs administration. Both the previous head coaches suffered trying to create balance within the team with the tools they had at their disposal.

    They( board & HC) all have to work together very closely if we are to be successful. I got the impression that wasn't the case last season. Maybe we'll get away with it in pub league but if things haven't changed then sadly we'll be found art yet again should we gain promotion and be back to square 1

    I got the one mpression reading between the lines that Dan will get more say, nothing to back it up, purely gut instinct.
    But the invoice nterview to me came across as there were certain aspects that if not in place he wouldn’t come.

Maybe if intricate & detailed questions were posed to the consortium at their press conference when they took over we may not be so frustrated as to what our future plans are.

    Goat Hair is developing his pillakin skills well.

    Am not falling for the line that the great football brains in the Consortium got together and decided they wanted to go for a system of football involving "counter pressing and high intensity football" and then went art to get a coach that matched that style. The reality is they were unsuccessful in landing their first three or four targets having waited for the Play Offs to finish. In the meantime Goat Hair did what he did when he appointed Morais, he went headhunting on the continent for unemployed HC's and found Stendel.
    There is an arse over t1t bit in the statement where they spent months drawing up a list of players and then "decided" on their style of play--the other way round would make more sense. Players like Perkins, Dagnall and Bradshaw are needed to make gegenpreesen work, not the Thiams, Moncurs, Mowatts and Moores of football.

    First rate pillakin Mr Goat Hair. I salute you.

    It's all irrelevant now. Stendel, whether he was 1st,2nd,3rd choice or whatever is now in as HC along with his assistants and sir Bobby in an advisory role. I like the new HC's ideas and style. Better to look to the future and get on with it imo.
