Am home and dry with a strong drink and a keyboard.....I know this is a rant, but if you care deeply about something you cannot standby and watch it slowly die.
I went early tonight to watch the Y League GF and watched a team that tried hard but unfortunately was outclassed on the night. Well done boys on a fine season, the first team could learn a lot from you.
As for the the first team....
Newcastle had scored fewer goals than anyone this season so I was hopeful. All I witnessed was a 7th straight loss at home and the worst performance I have ever seen from the club I love. I cannot comment on the 2nd half as I was on the train home...but the first half was a disgrace. That is the first time I have ever left at half time, despite threatening to do so before. It was without doubt the most insipid, gutless and clueless performance I have seen in my 7 years as a Wanderers member. In my somewhat educated footballing opinion Roly and Bachus were the only ones having a go. Everybody else should hang their heads in shame. The atmosphere tonight was more funeral than football. God only knows how many ESFC, the Tards and the Glory will score against us
As for the management....
The club is rotten from the the head down. Mr Lederer please walk away, and take all your mates with you. In 4 seasons under your watch we have gone from Asian Champions to the joke of the league. The track record under your ownership is pathetic. We have gotten progressively worse every year under your regime. Poor coaching appointments, even worse recruiting, allowing our best assts to leave or selling them and the shameful treatment of our most passionate fans is a reflection of your lack of understanding of football. You make Mike Ashley, Ellis Short and Ken Anderson look like gods.
Large corporations in our situation restructure from the top down. Now is the time to start, with yourself at the head of the queue.
I see the crowd posted was marginally over 7000 again. BULLS**T, lucky to have been 4000 and I reckon half of them were there for for the Y League game.
Earlier in the week I posted that we as fans should NEVER GIVE UP. I still feel the same way.
I feel much better now, and have talked the better half into attending next week against Mariners. She has concerns for my safety if I go on my own again.
