    we finished the game with four contracted players.

    That's tantamount to negligence to my mind.

    Factually incorrect posts are tantamount to criticism for criticism sake

    Yep... add the fact we have Hammill, Yiadom
    Isn't it more relevant how many players we have at the start of next season? Or am I missing something?!

    So that's six. Over half way towards a first team. Job's a good 'un.

    Think they deserve a lot of praise for getting us promoted, improving revenue streams, turning a decent profit for the first time in god knows how many years, and we're heading for our highest finish since 2000 or something?

    Nah you're right. They're clueless!!

    We lost money last season.

    What revenue streams have we improved?

    By only signing players or offering contracts to players who fit into the wage structure maybe?

    I wouldn't say restricting expenditure is improving revenue streams.

    Yep - you're mistaken. 6 not 4. So wrong.

    A bit like it saying it was impossible to qualify last season for the playoffs. Wasn't you was it? Only asking cos I can't remember bringing it up before.

    While we're on the subject of the playoffs, today we only had 3 out of 11 of our heroes on the pitch at kick off.

    Is that negligence? Or just footballing evolution?

    We're in mid table obscurity, with many a big budget club either around or below us.

    That's tantamount to success to my mind. Not negligence.

    And we finished the game with the crowd applauding a team that performed again in the same pleasing way that we hadn't done for years in this division.

    How negligent was that?

    Perhaps they shouldn't try so hard, these players that represent our club.

    Conan, just out of interest, if we clubbed up and bought you a season ticket to S6 would you just go?
    Massive club, millions of fans worldwide, use their financial muscle to recruit a £10m striker etc, etc

    Four as two will be out of contract in June - unless you think they will re-sign?
