Re: Current moderators

Like you I have read all of Clive's posts and if I had seen anything that I considered to be out of order I would have pulled him up on it regardless of whether I shared his view or not. Yes he is confrontational but from what I have seen he has only really resorted to insults when he was insulted ...

Re: Are Hay and Pope the Problem?

There was a time when local media, papers and radio were the prime source of information for football fans. But are we overplaying the impact they have on fans opinions these days? I used to read the YEP regularly, now rarely. I occasionally listed to Radio Leeds but not every game. Those that go to...

There's no such thing as bad publicity ;-)

Re: Thick Cresswell

I've been told outright my opinions are wrong. I haven't threatened to leave over it. I've called people sly because they've been trying to poison people against me and make out that I'm a nasty person, and it's obviously worked. You’ve only been here a short time and already disrupted the dynamic ...

Re: So Grayson....

Thought we played some great football under Grayson at times. And yes, we limped over the line but he still got us promoted. Something no other manager has managed to do since. And something he has managed to do with three other clubs too. Did he falter when we were in the Championship? Yes. But his...

How am I bringing MOT down? It's probably more popular than ever because of me. Look at the Twitter attention this thread created.
Yeah, I love the site getting a universally negative response on social media!

Re: Thick Cresswell

You’ve told people outright that their opinions are wrong, you’ve told people they are stupid and you’ve told people they are sly. If you can’t see why you are upsetting people the perhaps you are stupid (Your words not mine) but I don’t think you are stupid. I’m just saying that you clearly read th...

You don’t need me to point out examples, you know where you have done it. And having been banned from forums in the past you clearly know that you do it. Internet message boards are not just there for people to post whatever they want. They are communities fostered over many years. And when individu...

Re: Thick Cresswell

Yes, that’s right Phil Hay and Adam Pope have been on at me to ‘shut you down’. I picked this thread because you contradicted yourself. It’s ‘escallated’ because you’ve upset people. I asked you to tone it down, that’s all, but you’ve reaponded like you’ve been picked on, like your some kind of free...

Re: Thick Cresswell

Everyone is entitled to an opinion. I'm not entitled to agree with it. Cresswell has the entire Radio Leeds audience to broadcast his opinion to, I'm entitled to try to counter it in the best way I can when there isn't a level playing field. Absolutely, you are completely entitled to disagree. But ...

Re: Thick Cresswell

He was going on about Heckingbottom being a young English manager and we need to give him a chance. He said it's not fair to judge him when we're mid-table with nothing to play for, failing to mention that it's him who put us in that position in the first place! I thought you said everyone was enti...

Re: Are Hay and Pope the Problem?

Faults on both sides, cant blame Orta without blaming Radz because Radz is his boss. But Orta is responsible for recruiting he is responsible for the squad he is the one who signed the players so he is responsible for the squad not being good enough. Which is something Radz finally admitted yesterd...

Re: Heckingbottom Out!

I don’t understand why we hired him. Had it not been for his connections and history with Barnsley he would have been out on his ear long ago. They were on an awful run. When he came in he made some sensible decision on team selection. Many of which fans had been calling for. But he seems to have go...

What's your definition of respecting an opinion? Agreeing with it? Not agreeing with it, but not being so disrespectful as to argue against it?
Agree with it or not, we dont all agree with each other, just try not to come accross as an arse.

Re: Bailey Peacock-Farrell

I’m really not sure about this move. Yes the pressure was on Felix and he has made some poor errors but to throw your 21 year old keeper with one previous appearance into that situation is not good management in my opinion. He did ok, made some decent saves, some nice dives for TV but did he make an...

Re: Are Hay and Pope the Problem?

We've already got a couple threatening to leave because they don't like my opinions. This happened on other forums and the weak mods bowed to their threats and banned me even though I'd done nothing wrong. Those forums are dead now. You have obviously read the forum before joining so you know what ...
