Maybe we should have loaned a better defender.
With the money used to bring in Graham? Possibly, but I don't think the benefits of strengthening in a different position are as clear as simply improving in the same position.

Maybe we should have loaned a better manager. And mascot. If our mascot had been designed by someone with some talent, who knows where we could have been. Is it a coincidence that our success matches having a quality mascot? I THINK NOT. Bad mascot design killed our club blah blah blah.

I designed Roar. Though I didn't intend for him to be a sex offender.
Also, they made a right hash of it when they interpreted my drawing. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

But I'm sure you already know that.... ;)

Yeah, I was being subtle. Well, more subtle than you. I think it's well documented here already. Such as...

I think Toppers is really on to something. I think we should get rid of Dack, Smallwood, Mulgrew, Lenihan and Nyambe and get some loanees instead.

BETTER loanees. No point getting ones that aren't better. That'd be stupid.

To be fair, that's a post from EIGHT years ago.

Also, why can I not get smilies to work when I click on them? Is it a Mac thing?

Isn't everything? I'm surpised you don't get charged by Apple every time you click your mouse button.

(It's javascript - you've probably got some plugin/extension/whatever-safari-calls-that-stuff screwing it up) :detective:

Also, we are happy to insult you more regularly if you prefer. All you need to do is ask.

This guy's know in my family as The Good Roar, before they made him look ridiculous and then replaced him with a stupid dog. :D

You seem to be willfully ignoring some significant factors, but if you really want to dumb it down, then why not? Isn't the aim to have as strong a side as possible? Just because you're happy with a certain player, it doesn't mean you stop looking for ways to improve your team. A Charlie Mulgrew without the injury problems would be better than Charlie Mulgrew, for instance. We didn't need to bring in Adam Armstrong, but it's looking like a smart piece of business, strengthening our promotion push. But just because he's doing well now, it doesn't mean we should do all we can to sign him in the summer, as we're hoping we'll go up and therefore will need another of level of quality to compete.

You seem to be overlooking the obvious sarcasm in my post as well as willfully ignoring the only actual point I ever refer too.

I'm curious to know if you still have the designs/plans/blueprints/schematics of Roar in your archives somewhere to share with us.

I always liked Roar/Roarina for the record.

The argument at the time (from you and Blackbat) was that we shouldn't have given Graham a contract after his successful loan spell and should have looked to loan someone else instead.
Er, nope. I knew you'd always missed the point.

Haven't read the rest of the thread. But the point still stands: that's never been my argument. :shrug:

I'd also refute that his loan spell was definitely a success.
