What's going on?

Recommended Posts

Our players didn't look interested tonight...why? Is it lack of confidence, poor tactics or just poor quality players? We can't afford to lose the next few games or we could be adrift and we don't have enough quality in the team to claw it back. Huge transfer window coming up....AGAIN! If we don't add quality in a few positions i can't see us staying up.

We won't be staying up.

I was in early last night and both my son and I remarked how half hearted and disinterested the players looked during the warm up. I suspect the word got back to Goodwin as he appeared about 7.25 and appeared to be trying to roust them during a game of keep ball. It's worrying and the tactics last night (some sort of 4-3-3) saw us over run in midfield with no attempt to adapt. Andreu is a passenger and the state we are now in defensively is nothing short of criminal. Macpherson and Waters should be nowhere near a top league squad and if anyone offered money for Magennis I would carry him there myself ! Worrying stuff that needs addressed in January.

Where is Gleniffer1877's Thread which he posted a wee while ago   ?

He only asked a question regarding Goodwin getting let go .

Unfortunately, the forum maniacs had a major meltdown over any body having a go at the manager and the team.

The Owner of the Forum immediately banned Gleniffer1877 and deleted his Thread.

Here we are now.

Merry Christmas.

Maybe he was found out to be banned from the forum and was using another log on

Apparently its a tactic that gets used a lot.

Bottom line... the hard truth that quite a few choose to ignore, or even worse dispute... is that we are a very poorly run club!
Over three years since BtB and not one single new revenue stream has been created to bring funds into the club.
The current board have got by on transfer income from players signed & developed by the previous regime.
Kyle Magennis falls into that bracket too, but his stock will fall in an underwhelming team like ours.
This board are on their FIFTH manager in three years and that could soon be six..!

Isnt that the most telling fact that they cant get THEIR job right, so why should we, or they expect the people recruited by them to be any better?

It's a bit harder to achieve at a smaller club like ours given employee numbers, but their needs to be a clean line in responsibilities between the board and the team management. Having the chairman deciding who we are going to spaff money on because he doesn't trust who he has employed is madness, and repeating the same flawed process time after time.

And employing your mate to agree with you just sums up how little you know in running an effective organisation. Feck me how many years now have fans suffered a piss poor ticketing system?
Wouldn't you think that would have been a priority to sort to keep the tills ringing?
Nope.. more effort goes into selling out to sectarianism because that's easy, and it's a "Society Issue"...
Goody will be in an impossible position come the end of the month with some of his better (dont laugh) players moving on, and being stuck with the ones he knows aren't up to it.
Is it possible the likes of Oran might have wanted to take the Hladky money Qarabag were offering and invest it in 3 or 4 decent players?
You know like one of those £5 -£10k a week guaranteed goalscorers?
Instead we will likely be relegated, and Hladky will walk for nowt, or maybe a pittance in January.
We are a poorly run club...
What you are seeing on the pitch is the evidence of just how poorly run we are.

As pointed out to you, copy and pasting majority nonsense anywhere else on BAWA will not suddenly make it true.

It will not stop the fact that someone you dislike has progressed our club since taking over as chairman. Tough for you to accept, clearly.

"we are a very poorly run club ... What you are seeing on the pitch is the evidence of just how poorly run we are." - In my opinion, the main focus of the club custodians, whoever they may be, is to ensure that the club continues to exist. The main way of doing that is by not running up huge debts. How much debt have the current custodians run up? How we do on the park is, although important and related, a secondary issue.

"not one single new revenue stream has been created to bring funds into the club" - What has been looked at as potential revenue streams and been rejected for whatever reason? What is currently in the pipeline to bring money into the club?

"players signed & developed by the previous regime" - Good point, we were never in this, or a worse position under the previous regime. Oh, wait a minute ...

"Kyle Magennis falls into that bracket too, but his stock will fall in an underwhelming team like ours" - How much was Kyle's "stock" worth before and how much will it fall to? Have we ever had a realistic offer for him?

"Isnt that the most telling fact that they cant get THEIR job right" - No, see my first point.

"Having the chairman deciding who we are going to spaff money on" - Who are you referring to here?

"employing your mate to agree with you" - Evidence?

"suffered a piss poor ticketing system" - I'll give you that one.

"selling out to sectarianism because that's easy, and it's a "Society Issue"" - See my first point. Doesn't mean I like it, but I understand it. And, yes, it is a "Society Issue". Football gives it a focus and a certain 2 clubs exploit it. If those clubs didn't exploit it then we couldn't even be accused of doing it to a lesser extent.

"take the Hladky money Qarabag were offering and invest it in 3 or 4 decent players?
You know like one of those £5 -£10k a week guaranteed goalscorers?" - Qarabag offered £200k, iirc. A "£5 -£10k a week guaranteed goalscorer" would cost between £260k and £520k. That's ignoring the 2 or 3 other players you seem to think we could also get for the money.

"Hladky will walk for nowt, or maybe a pittance in January" - Yes, we all know that. Most likely for nothing in the summer. What's your point?

He's possibly even worse than Dickson ever was with his "wee huff".

Let's hope he goes the same way as Dicko and runs out of steam.

Absolutely spot on

I have a suggestion... see all the money made from chucking families out their own stand for the Old Firm games... Use that money to bring back Popescu.
But that has already funded two players!

Aren't we grateful?

Where would we be without those two additional diamonds?

Who gives a toss about fans with income generated being invested like that?

The sum is an important amount of money for our budget but the rumour was in the region of £500k for Popescu, we just couldn't afford him, this income wouldn't touch the sides at that value.

Player also seems to have fallen back in favour at his club so highly unlikely he'd even want to come back/ they'd want to sell now.

He has been ever present for Dinamo Bucharest since he returned. He is a first team regular. They were looking for around £300k first time round, his valuation to them will most likely have risen. We cant compete in that market, when you see the latest accounts recently released. It is just no sustainable and just shows that we are kind of dependent on that extra money from the ugly sisters games.

Far be it for me to disagree with all the knickerwetters, but I genuinely believe we are only 2 players short of a decent side. Every club in the land needs a strong centre half and a goal scorer/ provider. I thought letting Ross Stewart go was a mistake, but we move on. Our strikers really need a big strong powerful ball winning partner, but so does everyone else. Next 2 games will see where we are

Agree with you about being 2( or 3 or 4) short of being a decent side, but for me that is providing all of our best players are available. Last Wednesday highlighted just how thin the squad is when comes to options.

I'd probably see closer to 4, doubt 2 would see a big enough improvement with our budget.

All the other teams will be looking to improve in personnel in January, we need to get off the mark quick, let's not kid ourselves, the delay at the start of the season has cost us.

We need to unearth a few cheap/surprise packages.

As I mentioned in another thread we are still very much in it with another 3 teams anyway so not detached.
