I truly can't believe a thread on Poppynet (usually the less reactionary of our club forums) about our win last week at Hanwell has reached it's 12th page!
For anyone who can't be arsed to wade through it all, here are the highlights: -
Most people are happy enough that we won at Hanwell, and the team played well.
A couple of posters (one, a suspiciously recent member, and almost certainly not an ex player....) have managed to keep the thread going for almost a week, batting our seeming staggering amount of faults back and forth. Whilst most normal fans are content that we are doing well this season and clear top of the league, these guys are having none of it!
It simply isn't good enough!
(A) We need to be beating teams better
(B) We need to be beating better teams
(C) Only players win matches
(D) Only managers lose matches. And do so with their all-encompassing technical naivety. Or if they haven't lost matches they may well do so in the future!
(E) Managers should be sacked if any decision they make ever fails to generate instant success. Or if they don't shout more. Or shout too much
(F) Brett should be put in charge for no apparent reason
(G) If we are promoted the Managers will be found out next year. Or the year after
(H) Players sign despite the Managers
(I) As we are a bigger club than everyone else in the league we should utterly decimate all our opponents. No disrespect meant to anyone. Of course....
(J) The Chairman picks the team. Or is it the Managers set the budget. Or something
(K) Failure to win the FA Cup is just that. Failure!
I'm just glad we actually won the Hanwell game, or these malcontents would really have gone to town!
