Oh, and Kemp won Adver POTS and Disabled fans POTS awards, which was amusing, saw a video message from him and also our Aussie saviour..

What did our fearless leader say? Same old shit? Weve learnt our lessons etc

Yep, he was very open about the current situation, probably because he has nothing to lose.  One thing is clear, he won't be here next season unless they appoint a decent manager and start to show ambition as a club, which means he won't be here next season.  Wants to stay, but not under current circumstances.

He is probably one of the few players we have here that would quite easily fit into another L2 team, same with Austin, be good to see both of them stay next season  but without ambition etc. it will be the kids looking to nail down a 1st team place.

I'm sure there is something to him losing the captaincy also....

Sounds like a really nice guy but Iím fine with him leaving. Heís been a major part of the worst defence in the clubs history.

I understand this take, but disagree. I think we often under estimate how much influence a manager/head coach has.

Also statistically not the worst defense in our history either.

But he played in a kamikaze formation under Flynn, and now plays for an idiot in Gunning. I can't over state how much i have heard about how bad gunning is as the man in control.

I don't see we get much better than a FBT in league 2 honestly.

He was also our Player of the Season last year. He's one of a fair few who, if he leaves (and I suspect he will), will get a better club than us.

Pretty much what he said to me at the Sponsors evening.

Agree.
You put a decent few players next to him and stop this pick n mix selection.
Then replace this idiot in the dugout you have a decent player at this level.

The misery continues sadly.

Even though our defence has been terrible this season in the main Dokes and FBT are 2 that I would happily keep here if we have a tactic that plays to their strengths.

Even maybe McCarthy if hes available as on Saturday he made some great tackles and interceptions so he has it in him but its getting it out of him consistantly.

Tactics make a team, individuals rarely do, they get results but do not make a team when you have to rely on them, like Kemp/Young earlier in the season and McKirdy in the play off season.

Talented individuals just paper over cracks in a team, but add those players to a solid team and that takes that team onto the next level.

At no point this year have we looked a team with strong tactics, with each player knowing their role in a side, even earlier in the season we played great football at times but defensively the formation and tactics were still way off the mark, also back then we were playing 3 at the back, which almost all of us can see doesnt work with the players we have.

I've seen this 'part of a terrible defence so get rid' stance and I can't really understand it. Pretty much what Riddick and Nemo have said sums things up for me. This season has been an utter hotch potch which of course has seen us conceding absolutely stupid goals again and again. But I don't think you get many better defenders, or leaders at this level than FBT.  

Edit - just saw JJ's post. I agree with him also, Dokes and FBT are the ones i'd keep. Kokolo I'm on the fence about still, I quite like him.

Itís interesting to hear FBTís perspective- I donít doubt itís true. But it does seem unprofessional to be slagging off your employer when youíre on work duty. Probably for the best all round if heís going.

Best for him. He's clearly not happy. Will get a better deal elsewhere I'm sure.

We spent the 2nd lowest on agent fees for this season. Our £23k total is less than 10% of FGR's £260k.

He was far from slagging off his employer, went as far to say that GG is an OK coach, he's just not a manager.  He was very complimentory about the club and the fans and made it clear he doesn't want to leave, just wants to see the right manager and an ambition to match his - IMO that is fair enough as we have had no decent managers in his stint here or any semblence of ambition.  He was also uber complimentory about Shan, saying he was the best coach he has worked with since Darren Ferguson.
