  1. Blackpool fan here help needed please the petition

    Done. I was a 'sandgrownun' in the 1950s and 1960s. Stood on the Spion Kop (for a tanner?) and saw Sir Stan, Alan Ball, Emlyn Hughes, 'the best right back in Europe', Ray Charnley, Tony Waiters, Jackie Mudie and a few others I forget, who would get us into the Premier League now. Good luck The Seasiders, my second team. Can't wait for someone to point out that I can't claim to be a 'sandgrownun'!
  2. GReat manager?

    GR's latest interview in which he explains his new thinking on the advantages of changing the team from one match to another, is impressive. Add this to his recruitment track record, his undoubted communication skills, his sense of humour beneath which lies more of a fist to be respected and feared than Schteve exhibited, and I hope we are blessed with someone rather special in charge. Consequently he has built a squad and not merely a team. Given the controversy which rages at many clubs about the pros and cons of 'squad rotation', this is some achievement. And it's a squad for opponents to fear and respect on the pitch, rather than merely appreciate its Hughes/Ince skills which proved insufficent to achieve promotion. Maybe too, Mel's removal of SR has facilitated the vital Owner Chairman/Manager direct relationship which has enabled and given room for GR's strengths to flourish. In which case, we are also now blessed with the right man at the very top too! Discuss!
  3. Johnny Russell - Signed for Sporting Kansas City

    I'll never forget a smiling JR hauling Uwe Rosler up off the touchline whilst the Wigan player who knocked his boss down simply walked away. Almost compensated for the unexpected defeat. Good luck Johnny!
  4. Jerome's a good player....

    Norwich Lad is the best poster on here by a country mile. What on earth are you doing antagonising him?
  5. Gary Rowett “under consideration” for Stoke job

    But not with 300 Tramadol in his luggage, I hope.
  6. To give Uncle Mel some much deserved due, he seems to have learnt from his errors. In choosing GR, he has at last selected the right man (i.e. character) for the job which has needed to be done for years since our Wembley failure. And in removing Sam Rush he has resolved an inevitable conflict between two strong leaders, and created a supportive instead of divisive structure around GR. But having put down the sword, our owner now faces his biggest test. The Coates family has a much better sheathed sword than his. Even if Stoke City having had two managers whilst we have had twelve is an exaggerated statistic, Stoke has the proven supportive environment for an ambitious and highly regarded manager. For GR, this fact could be over-riding and make irrelevant all other pro-DCFC considerations listed in fear on our forum. So GR couldn't be blamed for leaving if offered the Stoke job. If Stoke want GR, Uncle Mel faces his biggest challenge in persuading GR that his current words now count for more than his past actions. And some on this forum might even be thinking that our owner's advocacy of the Derby Way will dissuade him from trying! Ronald Koeman could resurface at our end of the A50!
