Ignore that last poster (with no brain) Dave; he only crawls out of the woodwork to have a go at me ~ he's a single issue troll!

I do stand to be accused of that (and take it on board) because of my vehement objection to the manner in which Nicholson was appointed; but then you have vehement objections to the manner in which Owers was appointed.
In no way do I think that he was the primary target for Harrop to bring in and in no way do I believe that the dreadful hiatus in getting rid of Nicholson and him getting started was anything but detrimental to the club......we read into that what we choose; but the suspicion has to be that the chosen target(s) before him rejected the salary/contractual terms/or relocation aspects of the job.
Owers didn't need to relocate of course and indeed hasn't. Kuhl's arrangements are acceptable to the club and that is that.
Reading between the lines, I would hazard a guess that several ultimate targets of the management would not have been available until now and now that this part of the season is upon us the club is less desirable to many of them that it would have been back in September.
Not a single issue Merse - lots of them when you pontificate. You have issues about Nicholson - yet make references when it suits you to things that he confided in you - but you constantly make excuses for Owers when in fact his record both regarding players and results is arguably worse than that of his predecessor. You love to criticise the performances of specific players even when you have not attended the games in question and you constantly hurl insults at anyone who dares to disagree with you, particularly if they manage to get under that infamously thick skin
that you proudly proclaim that you have. In short you are the epitome of hypocrisy - the archetypal playground bully who metamorphosed into a grumpy old man half a century later - a latter day Sun King revelling in his own self adulation, demanding absolute adoration from all and sundry and throwing a temper tantrum when he doesn't get it ( a sort of North London parody of a North Korean dictator ).
It's good to know that I have progressed from a mere baboon to a "supernatural being, giant or friendly but mischievous dwarf
" (the Oxford Dictionary definition of a troll) although I confess that I was unaware that either could be found in or crawling out of woodwork: still I bow to your superior Natural History knowledge, which is doubtless as extensive and infallible as your wisdom in matters pertaining to football. I had feared that you may have indulged in more imaginative insults - I would hate to be described as the pip beneath your denture or the boil upon your arse - but I should have realised that someone who cannot appreciate the nuances of irony or satire really would not have the wit to be imaginative: it's not just your skin that's thick is it Merse?
It's a pity that you are such a windbag Merse as some of your points are worthwhile; it's just that finding them is like looking for diamonds in a dung heap. It's only a suggestion, but perhaps you could preface your postings with some form of Invective Alert or Content Value Rating ( a scale from Young Rant to Old Codger's Opinion might be appropriate ): BOLD CAPITALS
would be a good start ..........
