Re: Pro Hecky

I think that often the first people to call out 64 is Gess or I. We just point it out gently that a particular post may have been in poor taste. Outside of Ges and I I'm not sure who else is in this supposed clique so can't really comment on their actions. It's not the only clique here by a long st...

So you start a poll to suggest two Heck threads Pro and Anti. The results of that poll are 80% against, yet you do it anyway. Democracy is alive and well, and not living on MOT.
Hasn't been for a long time. Cosy little club and don't you dare rock the boat :roll:

Re: Post season tour

Ethically this is so wrong this tour. There is all sort going on out there at the moment. Surely we could have come up with a less controversial tour that was still financially attractive ! Morally inappropriate, too. In my opinion this gives tacit approval to an oppressive regime. The club should ...

Didn't realise you meant the member on here, I thought you were on about a player.
You mentioned 'Ronan' and 'member' in the same sentence!

Re: What do we need for next season? Signings etc.

Charlie Adam's legs have gone. After watching the last Old Firm game, I would love it if we could poach Scott Brown. A real nasty b*****d, who opposition fans could hate, but has a lot of skill as well, and is a real leader. Just what we need in our midfield. He will be in the last year of his cont...

Is he any worse than Diouf, Bowyer or Saiz spitting who we didn't mind? Who is Ronan?
Tell him who you are, Ronan.

Re: Virtual Lowfields Road - on your mobile device!

The game was often secondary, Norm, but it was a blast in that anarchic crazy house.

A lot of the fun was in trying to keep up with multiple simultaneous conversations.

Often answers appeared out of context with predictably hilarious results.

A competition-free poll-free feast of fun.

Re: What do we need for next season? Signings etc.

But lets be honest, he is exactly what we're missing and every team in the league will want him. I hate to say as I dislike him immensely, but I'd even take Joey Barton, as he would improve us massively. Heck I hated Diouf and didn't want him here, but warmed to him after a while. He's not going to...

Charlie Adam is on record saying he wants to play at Elland Road, so is certainly not unlikely he'd join. He's just what we're missing.
Like Ronan he is fat and slow.

Unlike Ronan he is a dirty ex-Rangers barsteward.

No thanks.

2-1 Preston . .Sean Maguire.
A player we should have signed having watched him light up the League of Ireland. One of several more than decent Irish players ignored.

VLR in it's day was absolutely brilliant.....live commentary on in the background and at it's peak had about 50 people on board during matches....it was a joy !!!

Re: Negativity

Why is it considered negative to judge a manager on results? My whole working life in sales was based on results. I lived/died by them. Same with what I'm doing now in 'retirement'. If I don't produce, then, I'm not successful. Doesn't matter what else heckingarse is doing as results suggest he is ...
