Re: Warrington

Biggest worry in the time JG has been here is the apparent lack of a plan. Yes, he inherited a squad devoid of confidence and a degree of ability but his approach really has been haphazard. When he first came in he was of the opinion that he could work with who was here, yet has barely given the or...

Re: Forum

Would you be able to provide some projections as to how the cost of a media manager would be offset through the revenue generated through social media? If you think really hard Jason, really really hard, I’m sure you’ll be able to work this one out for yourself. It’s common knowledge and Google is ...

Re: Forum

We’ve hired an analyst, full-time. Why not appoint a media manager who has a recent communications background? A sports journalism degree, PR degree, comms degree. All would have had up to date training and earned a qualification in aspects such as media law, crisis comms, PR, match reports, Adobe ...

Re: Forum

The club could really help itself with communication. For a club like ours, the news that we are providing accommodation is a big plus. What's wrong with a news story on the website about this? Looking at other club website news, this is the sort of thing provided, particularly as DJ said that play...

Re: The truth

Completely missing the point. Barely anyone would actually take up the reimbursement, but it's a PR win, a virtuous gift. Or shall we remain silent after our worst result in decades & allow things to build up for tomorrow night? Looks like it. So what pot of the fans money are you taking from to co...

Re: Gowling MUST go!

And therein lies the problem, he picks up a win now and again but we lose the games in between, including more potential batterings as you say. The win gets him another 3 or 4 games which we lose 2 or 3 of before we sneak another win. Leaves even less time for a new man to put it right. This is spo...

Re: Chorley

Having a player sent off in the 6th minute and then losing a CB within 15 minutes and playing a side in the play-offs, we were always odds on to get a hammering given those set of circumstances. Blaming the manager for what goes on once the players take to the field is ridiculous. We have taken 6 o...

Re: Chorley

I don’t want to hear the “but we only had 10 men brigade”. Shut up shop, battle hard and maybe concede one or two more. Lose respectfully. Leave it all out there. Body on the line for every cross and shot. That right there was a spineless capitulation. It’s a shambles. To lose 8 (EIGHT) nil is pathe...

Re: GOWLING OUT

If you googled the definition of ‘rattled’ you’d see theoriginalfatcat. Complete head loss. Adamant on calling out 97 as a ‘WUM’, yet rather than not rising to it, if that’s how you feel, here you are. If 97 chooses to post information he has been passed, in a forum, that’s entirely his choice. He’s...

Re: Farsley

The six matches thread showed this forum at it's best with lots of real support for the club but for me it really comes down to this game. We really have to win it - anything less and I think that's it for this campaign. People talked about the next six matches for a reason, we'll have a realistic ...

Re: GOWLING OUT

I assume it would have to be TT. We were rumoured with Whitley, however he has since signed for Scarborough. The only other keeper we have on our books is Harvey Kelly. Surely there is no way that Kelly is the preferred choice. I’d be amazed. You’d hope not given he can’t kick the ball ten yards in...

Re: What is going on at DFC? Media Manager edition.

It’s getting tiring trying to spell this out. The issue isn’t buying programmes. I completely appreciate it’s quite a nice keepsake. My point is more the fact in the current day and age, football clubs have moved on. There is barely any revenue in the cost of printing vs sales. Hence why so many clu...

Re: What is going on at DFC? Media Manager edition.

I honestly can't believe how some fans are talking about the media management just because the team are in a bad place at the moment, it seems that they won't see the wood for the trees. To criticise a guy who gives his all and has done for over 40 years in many different guizes, many at the same t...

Re: What is going on at DFC? Media Manager edition.

The social media / website output was criticised way before our results on the pitch turned into what they are.

Re: Tyrone O'Neill

Would it be the worst idea in the world to invite these 2 lads to train with us for a couple of weeks ? From memory Tyrone could at least hold the ball up and bring others into the game, something we are definitely missing at the moment. We just don’t have anyone up front who can hold on to the bal...

Ray is good at all the things behind the scene that people don’t see and appreciate. And if you read my original post, I acknowledged this. I went on to thank him for the work I am sure he does effectively, outside of his media role. The issue is for all the things he may do, he is not a media mana...

He is representing the clubs media output poorly. That's the issue. You wouldn't be losing a volunteer because he's a paid employee.

Whether I joined the forum 5 years ago, or today, is irrelevant. I did not feel the need, however with the state of the club at the minute I felt I wanted to express my opinions and open up debate. In regards to the Tommy scoring comment, you may be correct, however the issue is it leaves it open to...
