At the start of the season I predicted Flitters could achieve a respectable finish, given the circumstances he entered and found at the club.



Whereas I’m not going to go trawling through the archives, I expect your interpretation of the above would amount to little more than hinting that we might not be relegated. If you said something along the lines of ‘I think we will finish in the top half’, I’ll happily stand corrected.

I can say for sure that, as recently as December, you were clearly suggesting that we might go down - even if everything was dressed up in subtle hints from which you could later try distancing yourself.

He’s playing a sly devils advocate meets politically slanted message game to justify his position based on what everyone’s interpritation of his comments sound like. Kind of person who pulls the pin out of a grenade throws it then quickly hands you the pin then mysteriously disappears. Or the person in an meeting who throws in an open question to no-one in particular then shuts up to wait for everyone’s position to be made before declaring his own.

My personal favourite are the numerous Eastern European women he has had 'liasions' with!! I doubt he's left his bedroom for the last 30 years.

I’m more pleased by the fact we’ve sorted this early rather than the fact it’s Phil Brown

I wouldn't doubt reg for one minute. He's a miserable bastard like me but based on empirical evidence but he's not a liar.

Im certainly more optimistic than 2 weeks ago.

What’s all this Reg baiting about? If he thinks we’re still in a dangerous place, he’s entitled to surely. I know most on here are a glass half full type but there’s got to be room for a doomster or 2.

I think a bit of stick was fair enough as he does go on and on like a stuck fucking record but it probably went a bit far. I'm sure Reg can handle it though...

You would assume so. He turns 70 during 2018-19 though.

Ain't no way I'm working at 70. No matter what the retirement stats are predicting...!

As things stand, most people will be working until they die.

Unless the government decides to have some more wars, in which case we'll have to work for a bit longer than that.

Horton wasn't PBs assistant at Southend where he favoured ex Town loanee Graham Coughlan with Brian Horton as the clubs football coordinator.

Coughlan is still out of work since the Southen sacking along with PB, I think he may return as coach as long as PB is given full reign of staff appointments.

While Reg does manage to make me bite at times (well done), I'm not one to hold a witch-hunt against Reg. In fact, we've many shared loves (not women), with cricket and a good chunk of the arts amongst several and Reg is a decent one to have a casual intelligent chat with.

Time away from the screen does us all good, and perspective is a wonderful thing. Hearing about L-L's loss, gives you chance to take stock and think about family, etc.

Open forum will always bring diverse opinion, if we wish to live in a more centralised/controlled World maybe open forums just aren't for those types.

Anyway, it wouldn't be the same without a dose of Reg. Even if Reg thinks I'm some terrible young up start.

Even when Reg has long gone, I hope someone creates a "chatbot Reg" so we and future TEF users can eternally argue with the namesake. Who knows? Maybe we already are?
