    Now as football is a product sold to us through our respective clubs can I just say that as a paying customer I am not happy !
    On to the analogy…. If you pay good money for a meal and for whatever reasons the food isn’t up to scratch you grumble and moan or even summon the waiter. Now as a paying customer of Wigan Athletic I too have every right to grumble and moan if I am not too happy with my purchase ( Season Ticket ) ! Now this ” Give him time ” stuff I keep hearing, moving back to the analogy….Would you frequent a restaurant if you had had a couple of ropey meals and then found out that the chef was actually still learning his trade without the assistance of a chef who had experience of preparing meals to meet customers needs ? Probably not ! Especially if he kept making the same mistakes !
    Well I am one of those unfortunate diners and I aint been fully sated in a long time ! So can we get someone in to assist him please because his souffle is as flat as the atmosphere in his restaurant !!

    If you compare supporting a football club to going for a meal at a restaurant then you clearly do not have a clue about what supporting a football club is all about :roll:

    Filmoss, does this mean you might try out the restaurants known as Deepdale or Sh*tbok in the near future, or will you persist with the fayre at the DW for just a bit longer?

    Unfortunately at this restaurant, a large proportion of the clientele expect Michelin Star standards from the new, inexperienced chef, and tend to boo and barrack him through the serving hatch between courses, and at the end of meals.

    Chef brought a couple of his tried and tested signature dishes with him, which, it’s fair to say, have been met with a mostly unfavourable responses from the regulars, and his attempts to move to a more continental menu have been received quite badly by the predominantly meat-and-two-veg customers.

    The restaurant owner bought the business when it was originally based out of a burger-van, but some of the regular customers have criticised him for not investing further in the business, and his failure to bring in elite staff from the upmarket eateries. His preference to avoid risk and keep the restaurant financially stable has meant the doors have always been open for the regulars, despite their protests that by now they should be seeing a French Maitre D, juggling barmen and tappanyaki.

    It is becoming the opinion of those who enjoy the restaurant, even if the food can be hit and miss sometimes, that some of the regulars would be better advised not to bother booking their tables for next week, and f00k off and starve, metaphorically speaking, obviously.

    Can someone tell me what tappanyaki is ?

    And if he’s a Japanese striker we’ve signed I hope he starts the Bolton game instead of Scotland.

    I aint goin anywhere Horc I am clearly a glutton for punishment !! I must be the only one who leaves the restaurant every couple of weeks feeling I have been done ! There’s always the chippy ont way home I guess !!
    Oh and just for the record I have never booed a player or a manager in my life. I may have stood up in frustration at Scotland and shouted “I rest my case” but I hardly think he would have heard me. I religiously buy a season ticket every season and when we have a striker who hasn’t scored a single goal in over 20 odd league games I think I am entitled to moan about him ! As soon as the penny drops with our manager we may just see some goals on a regular basis ! If anyone thinks Scotland is good enough in this league then they are either deluded or just plain stupid ! I REST MY CASE !

    Fil, why must you keep putting words in peoples’ mouths?

    Everyone is entitled to an opinion as you so eloquently put it. This has never been an issue with anyone on this forum as far as I’m aware and never will be. The reason you are taken to task is because of the manner in which you express these said opinions. Your sometimes vitriolic attacks are seen by many to be OTT and unnecessary. They are considered to be unsupportive of the team and counterproductive when it comes to building confidence and improving performances.

    You seem to be one of those people who never actually listen to what people say but put words into their mouths and then attempt to destroy arguments which they have never actually made. Just because people tell you to get off players’ backs doesn’t mean that they think that the said players are world class, they just want you to be supportive of the team. This also applies to Roberto of course, he obviously has things to learn but having thousands (poetic license) of fans on his back will not help his progress as Newcastle have discovered on numerous occasions.

    I think it is fair to say that things went “pear-shaped” in both the Everton and Stoke games when Jason Scotland went off. That is not to say that I think he is on a par with Alfredo Di Stefano but it is to say that he is the best we have at what he does. (good opportunity here for one of your “nuggets” of wit/wisdom).

    I do get behind the team. I sing, I gee them up, I clap, I leap to my feet with baited anticipation when we encroach on the oppositions penalty area and I throw myself back into my seat when it doesn’t come to fruition. I am the full on fan but also I get frustrated when things go pear shaped. The Scotland incident was such frustration and if I upset anyone then I apologise but I just want us to compete with the best and when we come up short of what is required I make my feelings known ! Like I said I have never booed or shouted abuse at anyone and by venting my spleen on here that to me is my steam outlet valve ! There is nothing eloquent about explaining the definition of Forum. What I will say is that there is and always will be ambiguity on forums and sometimes things are taken out of context and that causes people to react adversely and cast aspersions when in fact they have merely misconstrued what has been said ! This then leads to animosity and snide remarks or clever put downs that I think we have all been guilty of ! At the end of the day we all have one thing in common and that sometimes gets misplaced in a sea of equivocality. So no wit I’m afraid on this occasion but I am sure you will agree a little wisdom and an olive branch to boot !!

    This is all getting a bit heavy for me.
    Filmoss, if you think they’re sh1t, and the manager is sh1t then so be it pal, get’em t’owd.
    As far as I am concerned you’re entitled to say what the f*ck you want.
    I’ve known you long enough to know you’re one of us, and would back the Latics to hilt when called upon.
    Keep up the good work, you must be doing something right, look at the responses you’re generating.
