Considering we played our full team and got stuffed 5-0 at home, then sound slike Mick made a sound move ! I would have taken 3-0 !
Werent his last goals against us last season?
Excuse me for questioning the validity of Widepedia ! He did plan to hand over to the club to guarantee the legacy.. Rubbish Whelan !11 December 2009 at 11:42 am in reply to: I love my club more than this league. Does anyone else? #15048
I suspect you have to make a personal choice what you want out of football, small success on a higher level or greater success in the lower reaches of the leagues. For me every game is like a cup final in the premiership, albeit some more like the Sherpa Van than the Fa Cup.
Football has been over hyped over the past 10 years and when you get to the promised land it isn’t always what you imagined, but don’t kid yourself about the enjoyment of beating teams if we go down, what’s the point if you only get promoted again. The whole point of football is to raise up the pyramid and enjoy the buzz when it happens.
Standing up at away games or even home games is the most over hyped uncomfortable experience you could have for watching a sporting event. I’ll take the seats thanks. Do you go to the cinema and stand up? Why would you want to spend the same amount of time at the football standing? A small minority of fans who have decided the modern game as we know it isn’t what their childhood memories suggested it was like, so you want to recapture the good old days. Move on and try to experience football in a safe environment for families and kids.
As for the rubbish we have before kick off, what you mean the music, rose tinted glasses that we would make any noise, cracking atmosphere eh !
As for players working past half time, I watched the drivel in the late 80’s and early 90’s when it went pair shaped, players were poor all the time. At least you have the chance of seeing some of the worlds great players grace the pitch in front of you. Maybe you were a united fan or Liverpool fan in the past 20 years cause not for a minute was the football any better.
Am sure someone on here knows the exact details, but we were close to going under when Whelan took over. As a club we are financially punching above our weight and losing money year after year, we dont own our ground and have a core following of about 12k, if whelan were to go this would plumit again and with the costs of wages commited to we would surely drop like a stone in the leagues and no doubt end up going under. Simple economics if clubs like Leeds and Charlton, Norwich, Southampton cant survive without premiership money.
Am sure this team is better then the circa 1992 team !
Fair point a £6 – £7m striker would be the ideal choice, but without guarantees and the faithful latics following support it would be a big risk. Maybe buying 2 strikers at half that would give better results?
I dont think our major problem is with the striker at the moment..
The sad fact is that if Whelan pulled the plug on the club they would go under, and more than liekly come back in a reformed state and play in Leigh or somewhere.
Still Whelan out :lol:
In fact I think we should demand a refund from the players.!
Its all posh bars in George street now, Cowgate is dead.
All we need to kick start our season is some consistency, a run of 5 or 6 games unbeaten and we will be mid table and looking good.
Try watching the Chelsea game again for a starter and see what he does contribute in the game.
I do agree he needs to start scoring though !
The big problem with losing that champions league final was that Whelan let Barlow go and didnt offer him a 12 year contract.
Strange how the first 10 games of the season he was regularly named in the team of the week for the premiership. Maybe once he scores his first we will see a new side to him !
We should be a top four club by this point in our premiership career, bringing in managers who care about the club and would commit long term to the club is a foolish move by the tight fisted Whelan :lol:
