Three of my thoughts:
1: ALF is not the answer and is not proven at championship level as 20 goals a season
2: like or hate the new structure with Roeder, he was not a great manager, but it seems to be working ok on the transfer front with players being bought quietly without drama
3: new board is shrewd with loans. No transfer fee, vastly reduced agent fees and probably wages with good quality. FFP savvy

Agree with you Ian80 apart from your Roeder point.
Since Paul Senior came on board he has been the Main Man as far as recruitment is concerned, so it would be stretching things to the limit to give Roeder any credit in that area. Jonathan Hill's opinion is respected far more than Roeder's.
You will have noticed very little noise from Mr Roeder in recent weeks?

Can I ask yo a question hOWLer do you secretly work at hillsborough because you seem to have a lot of insight and talk a lot of sense? or have you bugged the offices

Truth is hOWLer , we don't really know who is doing what behind the scenes!
I too, wasn't over the moon when GR was appointed , but he may have been influential in some of the recent acquisitions - we will never know.
Suggest , for now , we get right behind all the Chairman's men , and maintain a positive and united ( hate that word ) stance. After all, we have had more excitement this summer than for the past 10 years or so , combined!
I just hope that the coach can gel them together in time . We have not been creating enough chances in pre-season matches , so there is still a long way to go. While we do desperately need our 20 plus goal machine , we also need to feed him well . That's not happened yet.
Ben Marshall would have that sorted quick , but I don't think that's happening either.

Keep your voice down Cams Grandad - you never know who's listening! (lol)
All I will say ( for yours and Sleafords ears only mind you ) is Mr Roeder's skills and "influence" are in big demand elsewhere - or I bet that's what he will be hoping anyway!
