It's fucking honking.

If it’s a training top it’s fine. 

I thought it was the third kit hence my reaction Warnock

Well. Been what now, coming up for 7 years in charge. And Inside Tynie, while a PR whitewash, gives some sight behind the curtain.

So 7 years on, review?

Results. Total underachievement. Highlights include the League Cup league stages and going out of Europe to Maltesers. But also being consistently 2nd to Hibs. Unheard of. And of course now, relegation. Not about Doncaster. That's a diversion. We were bottom after 30 out of 38 games. With no form, our last game vs St Mirren showed what the remaining 8 games would be like. Fail. 

Player sales. Face it, we're a selling club. We need the occasional million pound player sale. We've sold Paterson for pennies. Cannae think of many more. Sow in the early years. A fluke bid. And Hickey of course. But generally spread over 7 years we've earned very little. Especially when 'the model' was to develop and move players on. We would accept £200k for ANY player in our squad. Fail. 

Youth. Much heralded by Budge and Levein. Who has come through? I feel we've been in Moore, Brandon, Cochrane and Henderson stages for years. If all fit, which youth product starts for us? Why are we bringing in Frear? Rangers have half a dozen wingers but still Kai Kennedy. Getting rave reviews. Were our youth forwards so poor we needed to bring in Wighton? We're meant to have the best set up and about 30 coaches. Fail. 

Recruitmemt. Cole Stockton. Kenny Anderson. Grezelak. It's a thread on its own. Wasted millions to sign. Then pay off numerous players fit to play for Torquay. Fail. 

Managers. Levein blind spot. Stendel farce. Cathro farce. Interviews with Billy Davies. Fail. 

Finances. Operationally loss making in every year. Failed to hit Revenue targets. Only propped up by Mr Anderson and FOH. She got us relegated. Then failed in an expensive legal challenge, using our money. Fail. 

The Stand. My favourite. Now £24m. And not finished. Original budget? £11m plus £1m contingency. Outside? Uninspiring office block. Inside? Ill thought out. Like a set of offices in a b&q store. Nothing of quality. No vision or ambition. Cheap at every turn. No corporate. Gorgie Suite still our premium suite, after £24m. Fail. 

Pitch. Another million. Fail. 

Fans. Constantly tipped upside down for money while being berated and harassed. The most CCTVd  fans in Scotland. Young team with songs surrounded by stewards. Fail. 

Budge. She has revealed herself to be a divisive figure. She took a week to alienate the men in charge in Glasgow. Turning up to sort Scottish footballs century old problems. Dr Budge. Genuine fans. Messiah pose. Fail. 

5 year plans. Well been 7 years and we're where we started. The championship with Robbie in charge, watching Walker. Fail.

The above are facts. Not opinions. But I got banned twice from Kickback for this. Felt I didn't belong in Eighteen74 bar listening to zoomers and clappers. Saying that, only been once. I don't feel this is my club anymore. FOH are complicit. We need a fans lead revolt when Covid is over. £2m a year to watch Frear and Halkett against Alloa.

Budge and her pals. OUT.

Is the pitch a fail?

Aside from that daft concert - what’s been wrong with the pitch?

The pitch has been shit for years, she spent 1 million on upgrading it then booked that concert weeks after the work was completed

It's constantly muddy. Even in dry weather. It cuts up constantly. And it's shit. And. Nobody in Scotland has spent more on their pitch in recent years.

Rangers don't go on about their youth system. They have arguably 6 top quality wingers with Jones and Hastie not even making the bench. Kennedy is a teenager, nowhere near the first team. On loan to Inverness and playing fantastic.

We. Go on about our youth system. And are still messing around with Moore and Henderson. Who do nothing for us, or the teams they go on loan to.

I'd rather we silently just produced the occasional decemt player who shows promise as a teen then becomes a first team player. Ours end up at Falkirk, like Morrison. Despite our boasting, I'd swap every youth team player I've seen near our first team for Kennedy. Fail.

Do we have enough players for a Cammo Toe XI yet?

Sonny Bradley at CB, Kai Kennedy on the wing...

Yes. The point is he is their 6th or 7th choice winger, a youth product, 18 years old, and looks promising and doing it for Inverness. We have Lewis Moore. 22. Been at Cowdenbeath. Forfar. Falkirk. Doing fuck all. THAT'S what our youth system does. It produces players that float about the first team for 4 years. Then get punted to the lower leagues permanently. Hickey is an exception. But otherwise it's been years of mediocrity. Meaning we need to bring in Wighton. Reilly. Frear. And a host of others where a promising youngster should be coming through and staying in and around the first team on merit.
