    Dear Mr Bloom, Mr Barber and BOD

    Looks like going down the cheap route has ultimately failed. The quest to save a few bob and to satisfy the FFP sinkhole by selling our best players has just about cost us our Championship status. Bringing in El Cheapo loans is never a good long term investment. The players don't look up to the task and quick frankly don't look like they get a toss about us going down. Now i'm not going to grill CH as to be honest he can only work with whatever meager budget he is given.

    To be honest. I really do hope someone from the club see's this as to be honest as i'm sure i'm not the only one cheesed off with how things have been run.

    Sorry for the way i've written this and i'm aware it may not make much sense but i have had a few to drink to drown my sorrows.

    Bottoms up.

      NSC told them all that six months ago.

      Thank Christ Hyypiä did the decent thing and fell on his sword the day after the kids Xmas party, cos Bloom had no intention of sacking him.

      Really makes you wonder what the board is playing at. Anybody would think they WANT to be bought out by a dodgy swarthy business syndicate...

      I really don't know what they are thinking sometime's with some of the decisions they've made. Though if PB went and said something to the media. Most fans seem to melt in his hands like putty and lap everything up he says.

      They are using Tony's logarithm of probability, as used in the Iceworks. Clearly it only works for forecasting league results and needs tweaking for a particular Teams performance.

      I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion, I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.........Time to die.

      Human nature innit. PB connects with the fans on a human level. Same as CMS applauding the fans after a game does. Hard to give a hard objective appraisal of the performance of people who are so goddamn intrinsically NICE.

      Bloom had no intention of sacking any of the managers that he's employed. Gus decided his own fate, Oscar and Sami both decided to walk. Bloom has a more enlightened view about football management in that, if he decides that someone is the right person he will give them enough time to show it. This will be a lot more that 6 months or until they lose a few games. I honestly believe that he won't be too fussed about a relegation if, in his opinion, this will ultimately lead to a stronger team and manager.

      I think that us fans will need to get used to this approach or there will be several of us with unnecessary heart attacks or strokes.

      You'll be disappointed with that choice of words.

      But to me that kinda brings up another question. Are our managers really the manager and not just a yes man as since Gus we seem to be sticking to the same sort of style, same kinda formation. Makes me wonder if Bloom is trying to managerial strings behind the scenes. Maybe a foolish drunken theory but it's the best i could come up with.

      Why? People need to understand that this game isn't that important in the short term - despite what Shankley said and despite some of the people that come on here at 4.55 after a defeat. It's what happens over a number of years that counts and it involves laying the correct foundations both in the playing and non-playing areas. They could manage their wellbeing better by understanding that.
