    I think the fact Embleton is a local lad means he gets cut a little slack by the fans but in his defence he’s hardly way worse than any of our other midfielders. He’s from here and so he gets what this club is about and what it means to it’s fans to turn things around and that’s more than you can say about most of that squad who, without doubt don’t seem to give a flying f*^k about the club or it’s fans, just their bigger than average L1 wage.

    So Embleton isn’t the finished article but maybe with better coaching and a decent run of games he can be better than what we’ve got and being local he’s got the incentive to try.

    So am I. That ****er set me back $50 when it was apparently a dead set certainty that he was our next manager.

    The same calls were made against Watmore and Honeyman as they bedded into the team even Hume and Diamond have not been universally welcomed and Neil has been frozen out completely. These players all have something in common, not that they have come from within, it is that they all have quality.

    For as long as I remember , we were always at the start or part way through a 5 year plan. Maybe they never came to anything , but at least there was a feeling that there was some structure

    The title of the thread is " Takeover RUMOUR" there is a clue. Maybe you should not bother looking at this thread

    Neil is has been given less of a chance that Embleton yet impressed me more. I didn't mind Watmore, but his injury record and wage he was on meant he could never have stayed. We made a mistake getting rid of Honeyman.

    I doubt anyone's interested in 'being right' about the date, I'm not even sure if anyone's given a date.

    I'm more interested in the club making the right appointments and signing the right players.

    This is just a bit of fun in between matches tbh.

    I don’t even think getting rid of Honeyman was a mistake. I wasn’t impressed with him at all in our league 1 team. He was ok. The mistake as always was not replacing him with someone better.

    I don't think he's backtracking tbf, because I don't think anyone has said they know the date it'll be confirmed. It's with the EFL, that's what they're waiting for, and the EFL will take as long as it takes them in all likelihood. I doubt even KLD knows when it'll be confirmed. He knows its a formality, hence the appointments we've been making that Donald would never sign off on, but the EFL likely won't have given a "we'll give you an answer on x date" statement. It'll happen, it should be any day, but I doubt anyone will pin much on a set date.

    You'd think people were asking for money, or an award, for passing on what they hear ...

    ... if it comes off I'm happy but don't run outside and dance in the street.

    I posted on Christmas Eve that there'd be an announcement then said KLD was appointing a right hand man to sort the club out.
    That all happened but I'm not on here demanding praise ...

    ... nor do I deserve snide comments if they hadn't happened.

    People who want absolute facts should stick to checking the club website.

    Haha. Ffs. It will be very soon. My information goes against most. It's not waiting on the EFL. Let's see.

    And hasn't been for a while ...

    ... in the meantime some bell end called garyswc, on RTG, is trying to convince people there's a massive problem and it is about to fall through.

    Absolutely idiotic <laugh>
