The man has come out and said he / Peak6 made mistakes ...... he had the balls to hold his hands up. Nobody is absolving him from anything, but there is also no point in dwelling on something which happened in the past. The important thing is that action is taken to ensure those mistakes do not happen again.Louth4sam wrote: ↑Fri Apr 30, 2021 3:46 pmI think he is genuinely trying his best like he says why the hell would he bothering otherwise. I've said it before bringing Magilton in seems to be a good move and hopefully it was because Bill had the self awareness that he needed help as he was lacking the skills and ability necessary to run this club on his own.GC. wrote: ↑Fri Apr 30, 2021 3:17 pmOr alternatively he is speaking honestly and it doesn't need to be taken with a pinch of salt. Bash bash bash....it is the default reaction of so many. I don't know if he is being 100% honest or saying what people want to hear, but I do know that he didn't have to do an interview if he didn't want to.Alrightourfella wrote: ↑Fri Apr 30, 2021 3:09 pm Am not a fan of bills and his interview should be taken with a pinch of salt he's just saying what fans want to hear positive
action is needed positive decisions are desperately needed and from his previous choices and actions i don't see anything changing anyway on the game i expect dlk to win by a comfortable margin...
I'm assuming you also recognise that there is a default reaction of defending Bill here by many also? There was about five posts in a row praising the interview and more or less absolving him of the mistakes made. I want the best people at the club, from players on the pitch, manager, coaches and CEO. Those that are so quick to absolve Bill, how many of you wanted Filippo sacked for his mistakes. How many of you would start Abibi tonight? Surely they're only human also and entitled to make mistakes?
Interesting in the interview were his comments that JM is running the show on the ground, Bill isnt getting involved in picking teams and that FG wasnt happy having returned and the issue with the license. JM is charged with presenting a shortlist of candidates and the board will look at them (normal procedure at most clubs), the leak within Oriel seems to have been plugged and the mistake of appointing someone without a license will not be repeated. All things which show improvment or at least the attempt to improve things.
Abibi, would I start him??? Most likely no, the lad needs time out of the spotlight, however you have to remember someone presented Abibi to the board and they gave their OK to the deal (fans complain if the board sign players!!). Now we dont have to be rocket scientists to figure out who presented him and by in large what the consequence has been for that person. Next window you will see this problem also being addressed I would imagine. Not every signing is perfect, good goalkeepers are hard to find. Ask Fergie how many he went through after Peter Schmeichel retired before they got it right. We can only hope the next in the door works out.
So back to tonight ..... lets hope we get a win and a clean sheet.
