    No, I'm not saying that, I'm saying what I said, that "you got angry about people pointing out that the owner had announced who the starting goalkeeper was for next season, and then had to swiftly walk it back. Even though you'd heard it said, you tried to say it hadn't happened." It's not complicated. It's why I accurately described you as an idiot. I can tell you this stuff, but I can't make you understand it, do you have a friend or parent who can help you with it?

    You have to cut the negative and Toxic stuff out mate. Nothing to be gained by allowing it into your life. Ignore those who spread it, both on here and in the real world. It literally makes you sick.

    I repeat yet again, ,I missed the opening comments. Can you not read - maybe you have a friend or parent who can help you with it yeah?
    And, as I & others replied earlier, there's a big difference between stating who will be our No 1 keeper in our squad next season v's who picks the team each week. It's not complicated yeah?
    Acun clearly said, not for the first time, that it's the coaches job to pick the actual team. The proof was there for all to see during Rosenior's tenure. Also not complicated.
    Yet you imply Acun picks the team, which means you therefore don't believe what he's saying i.e. you are implying he's a liar. Also not complicated to understand
    ..... unless of course it's you that's the idiot.

    Actually, yeah, it's probably me that's the idiot but only in as much as I keep responding to the nonsense from 1 or 2 on here. I should know better and should take previous advice from several other posters.

    Can you all not just let it drop now it's so ****ing boring reading people just go back on forth on one or two points and getting increasingly rude.

    Especially when it's quite small nuances being discussed.

    Our owner brings a passion and drive that we needed badly. Sure he will make a few gaffs here and there but who really cares about that. He backed Liam in January and just missed out. He will back Walter in the summer and I think we can look forward to seeing some exciting signings coming in. I think we will be fully utilising the loan market and I expect to see some good loan players join us. I will be sad to see Greaves and Philo go but not surprised. I am expecting we will finish in the top six next year, that’s my gut feeling. Expect to see a new spine of the team coming in. I also would like to see a real hard bastard leader in the middle.

    I think Tim's going to need a season, and fully expect him to be afford it if we finish in the top 10 playing his style of football.

    He’s only got a season. If he doesn’t get promotion he’s gone.

    You think so? Acun only ever seems to talk about playoffs.

    Acun only ever talked about top 10 last year. He’s clearly more ambitious in private.

    I take what Acun says about attacking football in good faith and believe that Liam would still be here if he delivered on that front. If Tim plays the football promised and finishes in the top 10 I think Acun will stick by him.

    I really don't think he'd accept finishing in a lower position , but of course
    we don't even know which players are going to be here next season yet

    He also said that Liam would have stayed if we got promoted.

    Its all well and good having an entertainment level to aspire to - but at some point that needs to see results to. Acun wants to get to the PL - if we don’t manage it this season that means it’ll be at least 3 and a half years into his ownership before we get there. How long will he wait?

    You're a very odd person. I don't imply that, nor have I ever. All I did was point out what he said in that meeting, as have others, and you respond with hysterical rants about how we're impugning Acun's integrity. As many have tried to make you understand, Acun did something stupid. Rather than say to yourself, I missed the start and therefore I might have missed that remark, you instead attacked all the people who mentioned it. You're an idiot, I don't know how many times you need to be told.

    The bar obviously changed following the Jan recruitment. Clearly felt he didn't he didn't fulfil the potential of the squad at his disposal in the second half of the season.

    He can't exactly say top 6 next season when we only have half a squad currently though. Suspect the target will be refined based on the success of the recruitment.

    Yeh he did say that which I took for meaning if we got promoted the attacking football would have been worth sacrificing which seems reasonable to me.

    Based on his interview yesterday,.. if our squad thought last seasons pre-season was tough, might I suggest thy start doing a bit now so they dont throw up in the first week...

    He'll get one, autumn into winter if he's lucky before the knives are out.

    Does anyone have any idea who the first team keeper will be next season. I've not heard it mentioned on here lately.
