  1. I've listened to the 2nd one first..... again a really good insightful interview by @TheMagpieCircle

    Here is my take, reading between the lines:

    1) Recruitment: Brano's appointment an absolute disaster waiting to happen ( had he been a head of recruitment elsewhere?..no, I think is the answer)

    2) Recruitment : Derry seemingly signed players on "other peoples" recommendations, without ever seeing them play. Jimmy Sirrel did the leg work, travelling up to Scotland midweek to see games... I never got that impression that Shaun put in the miles? he mentioned Greg Abbotts in depth knowledge of L1, L2, Conference...so why did we end up signing the likes of Hayhurst, Wroe, Santos on loan....  It just doesn't hang well together. Bajner being a case on point, signed up on the basis of a call from his agent

    3) Budget cuts.... I think people are missing the flip side to this equation. The Trews, probably still had the financial legacy of the Munto fiasco to continually to sort out. Also, maybe, writing without any knowledge...did the Trews have the necessary "dosh" coming in to finance the budgets...hence the cuts being made. I recall Chris Kiwomya saying his budget had been cut by a third...so this was ongoing...

  2. Playing philosophy has to be stuck too. The total football of Moniz was ditched by the opposite extreme of bringing in Fullarton.

    Board members need to be of independent mind. Hardy bringing in his "Forest" mates was a disaster waiting to happen.

  3. How did the referee perform?

    I thought he actually did very well, he seemed to miss things but generally play to continue. He didn’t seem to be on either team's side which makes a change, and I know he made some poor decisions but within League Two I expect this.

    One word...incredible.... Bottled the head lock red card decision.... Wiseman red card seemed to have been used to makeup for the earlier decision. Need refs to get the big decisions right...
