Despite admitting he will be trying to offload some players in January, Clarke could not fault his squad for their attitude following another defeat last time out.

"The lads are fantastic," he beamed.

"They're a great group to work for. I can't fault them for it, even the Blackburn management team came into the office and said "We've watched the match back on video and your lads gave absolutely everything but don't you think it's about time you headed back home? I mean we've hung around and watched the entire 'kin game, not just the highlights, yet you're still here. We're waiting to lock up the ground ffs."

"oh yes and the police are waiting outside so perhaps before you load the kit basket on to your coach you can give us all of our silverware, cutlery, toilet paper, soap, tea cups, corner flags, training cones, footballs, hi vis jackets and the groundsman's dog back please".

Once a squatter...

A couple of the caravans had broken down so they were stuck there for a bit.

That and the club had arranged for a tarmac job to be done on the way home but they couldn`t get on site till Sunday morning.

Apparently they were going to do a car boot the next day .

Its obvious that dopey and the white plastic chairman don't communicate as he said only last week that January is not a good time for buying has beens or tramps so when he gets his poundland Christmas list out I think he's going to be disappointed.

Oh well never mind.

No fan of that Jordanian bullshitter but Clarke must think gas fans are even more stupid than we do.

He said he had only spent "£135k in total since 2014" but Nichols from Peterborough (who they signed to replace Taylor this summer) was rumoured to have cost £250k alone and I doubt the Oxford player Sercombe was much less than £150k.

Of course when you have lost 9 of your last 10 you will say any old bollocks in excuses, eh?

We gave them £300K for Matty though so maybe it's a net spend of £135K. We've spent loads but have a very low net spend taking into account monies received. We might even be in profit on transfers for all I know.

What I do know is they are absolutely shite, want 4 Championship players, a cat 2 training academy and a new stadium even though they haven't got a farthing to scratch their arses with. There's a slight flaw in their plan TBH.

He doesn't say net spend though, does he?

He says "in total".

Think almost all of their forum have now realised when their manager is saying "I'm only staying for the fans", that they've got a bottom 6 budget for salaries and that nothing is happening, there's serious problems. Almost like he's begging to be fired:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/42184357

Altho some on that forum still saying:

*  "Should be discussed in private" (not realising if Hani is barely talking to Wael and Hamer there's no way he's taking to Clarke so this is his only way to get his attention)

*  "Living within our means is good" (you're losing 2m a year)

*  They've built the club up behind the scenes (yes to make it more attractive to sell, and all financed by the equity in the Mem)

Even with reality kicking them in the face delivered by their very own messiah, some are still deluded...

What makes this forum so fantastic is that people had predicted this exact situation with WAQ and the dog botherer. They worked out wael was a fraud, and that the UWE wasn't going to happen. I love watching their slow, helpless plight.

Forgot to mention someone on there was blaming agents, trying to say Clarke's agent was making him say it to be attractive to other clubs... 

Because slating your employer is really what other employers look for! 

Their conspiracy theories get more and more outlandish, like being convinced the Merchant Venturers means SL can do what he wants in Bristol. 

No it's called actually having money, and goodwill from the city for actually spending it to improve the lives of its citizens...

Sorry guys, Wally opened his ration book and found all of his vouchers had been used up. Dopey still thinks he can conjure up a few more otherwise he would have been off to pastures new by now.

Still, at least the fence has now been paid for apparently and there is enough in the bottom of the barrel to pay next weeks wages.

I`ve just had a thought how they could make a few quid. If they`re putting up big screens for their drive-in thing why don`t they show our game v Manchester on them? Thousands of their morons would turn up and pay handsomely on the off chance of seeing us get turned over.

We would need to have someone from our side filming the crowd though as we would not want to miss their reaction when we win!

Wouldn't that be marvellous? Let all the Sags in in their cars and then when they are ready for Love Actually the gates get locked and on comes City v Man Utd. There would be the usual  Ted shouts followed by lots of horn beeping, then fans would try to drive out. It will end up like a demolition derby at the Minimal.

Darrell Clarke as David Brent

the above is a link to Dopey’s latest interview. During said interview he talks about the three lists he’s prepared. You can see this if you skip to the 4m50s point. 

He says “I’ve got 3 lists; Waitrose, Aldi & Poundland.”

He then seemingly turns to the camera and makes a David Brent style face. And I love it.

“I suppose I’ve created an atmosphere where I’m a friend first and a boss second. Probably an entertainer third.”

“When people say to me: would you rather be thought of as a funny man or a great boss? My answer’s always the same, to me, they’re not mutually exclusive.”

“You will never work in a place like this again. It’s brilliant. Fact. And you’ll never have another boss like me, someone who’s basically a chilled-out entertainer.”

“I actually like my staff to be better than me. That keeps me on my toes. So my motto would be ‘Be careful because there’s always somebody ready to step into your shoes and do your job better than you do it.'”
 

“I can wake up one morning and go, ‘I don’t feel like working today. Can I stay in bed?’ ‘You’d better ask the boss.’ ‘David, can I stay in bed?’ ‘Yes, David.’ Both me. Not me in bed with another bloke called David.”

“Please don’t hate me. We’ve all been lied too. I wouldn’t be here now if anyone else wanted me. 

Don’t expect things to change any time soon. There is no money so we will be signing players to try and keep us in the football league next season, on free transfers and players that nobody else want. 

The one good thing from my point of view is that they can’t afford to pay up my 5 year contract to sack me, so I can pretty much say what I like. 

I’m not really looking forward to Christmas this year!”

That's what he's basically saying.

He also knows that in the mind of your average Sag he can get away with murder as long as he tells them what amazing supporters he thinks they are.

They lap it up of course.

Meanwhile this kind of public 'back me or sack me' move puts more pressure on the owners and deflects the blame from him and the playing side shifting it towards the boardroom. Maybe he does feel let down, if I was the Al Qadis I'd be furious if he was suggesting it on the radio.

Hilarious.

I have watched it now and to be fair he is misquoted as he makes it very clear that is net spend, so after money brought in for Taylor, etc.

He is bloody rude though, rarely letting a question finish before interrupting.

Agree with you about him being rude. In after match interviews he refers to his player by their surname;

"Sinclair did ok for an hour, good to see Bodin back fit again etc."

Is he living in the 50's?

That interview tells me one thing: they have diddly squat money.

 

Oh, two things, he's looking to shift the blame for the poor performances.

To me, that came across as a right 'pop' at WAQ TBH. It seemed to be a 'I can't make a silk purse out of a cows ear' to me. I would imagine WAQ won't like it at all.

The thing that grinds my gears is the 'how successful they've been for 3 years' crap! No, if you hadn't been utter shite beforehand, you wouldn't have dropped out of the league and all you've done is bring a lower league 1 / league 2 club back to their supposed proper position. Hardly successful, more righting the abject crap that went on beforehand.

They blatantly have problems, big problems and it all comes down to financial backing, or in their case the total lack of it.

'See you in Waitrose? More likely sat outside rattling a tin.

Hey ho, up the City! :)
