Re: Trotman extends contract

Good move by the club to secure Luke has definitely been one of our best and most consistent players over the last 18 months. He would be more than deserving of the opportunity to test himself full time again. But, as someone mentioned above, he will be going into the final year of his degree next y...

Re: TW - Learning His Trade

Interesting that Trotman has signed a new deal today. Possibly suggesting that we may have Wright in charge again next season unless we are just protecting the club in tying down one of our more valuable assets. I cant get away from the fact that I like Tommy Wright as a man and I really want him t...

Re: TW - Learning His Trade

Problem for me is, I don't see where he is learning. We don't have an effective defensive unit. He has consistently failed to coach this into the players and the way we play. In reality we should have been 2-0 down at half-time v Boston. He gets plaudits for changing it at half time, but did he seri...

Re: Next season

Don't see the need for all the comparisons tbh. In my boat TW has failed to deliver this season. There is nothing from last season or this that has proven to me that he can provide long term success to this football club on the pitch. It is his 3rd job in football management his record at any of tho...

I still don't really grasp the concept of it all, or how this is going to bring anything useful.

Does he really believe we're a good team, or is he just saying anything right now to keep the wolves from the door, hoping luck will bring him some form. I think we have some good play...

I can't see any reason to carry on this experiment. To me, he has failed on his own terms, two seasons in a row. He inherited a decent squad - ok understandably he wanted to put his own mark on it, but for most, he made it worse. He's made flop big signings (Ainge & Hughes), squandered a decent bud...

Re: FANS NETCAFE -this Friday evening.

I suspect that TW's contract reaches a point at the end of this season where we can end it without penalty (and he can walk away without penalty) or the two parties can let it roll on should they both want that. Really hope that is the case. Best for all parties. Really can't understand why Tommy i...

The thing that concerns me most is the level of apathy as TW remains in charge. It genuinely reminds me of our league 2 relegation season. We turn up. A win is a bonus but I expect nothing.

Shame. Seemed like the kind of personality you would want around the squad. Can only wish him the best for his future both on the pitch and off it.

Not going to go much further than I did after the Chorley result. But to say it once again, for me, shows a consistent inability for TW to improve us as a football team.
