Mane leaving was the start of your downfall, not saying it was just that but basically it’s where it all started to go wrong.
Talking Bollocks Keith, Mane for a start wanted a new challenge, he went perhaps knowing the writing was already on the wall with this team, we also brought in Lucho as a replacement and for me were more dangerous, taking every competition we entered right to the wire,
Some will say Gini was never replaced either but then we didn’t replace Kenny, or Rushy, or Jocky Hansen, sides move on or evolve into a different animal, and top players move on,
To me it didn’t start with Mane moving on, it started two years before when we should have started the rebuild, but due to covid and FSG sticking to their tight arsed guns we didn’t have the dollar to bring in new faces, I suppose you could add Jürgen being too loyal to his key players but then what the F**k was he supposed to do working with a budget of a Championship side.
Easy to point the finger at losing Mane but the truth is we simply didn’t/don’t have the funds to just go out and buy for the sake of buying, we’re not f***in Citeh, Toon, Chavs or even your f***in scummy lot, so when Mane announced he was off, no one was available until Lucho arrived in January, and it’s no coincidence he was pivotal in us challenging on all four fronts last season, a season where it should have been the last hurrah for Jürgen’s first complete X1.
No doubt you will retort with some kind of counter argument and call me billythecnut , but that’s ok I’m used to absorbing crap from ugly fat troglodytes, have a nice f***in day Fuckstick !!!
