From the little time I've spent on the forum this is what I've found strange tbh. If someone raises concern with what they seeing they are kopites or wums or irrational based in a lack of evidence however if that same person comes back with evidence proving their points they are branded bad fans who wallow in the glory of being correct while the team is struggling.....i don't get it.
Surely we should discuss what we are seeing from the team and individual players throughout the season and so far I have been less than impressed with recruitment and performances.
I could reply to each of your points, but as you seem to keep ignoring the point I'm trying to make, and are now assigning things to my 'logic', despite me not having made definitive statements about.. well.. anything in discussion with you.. It seems more than a little pointless. Let's just leave it at 'I don't see the 'evidence' you see as definitive evidence, I only see them as discussion points.'
Just to be very clear - I have not called you a wum, or a kopite, or anything similar whatsoever. I have addressed your points in a logical manner. I have pointed out that some of your beliefs are based on your internal feelings and that you have attempted to present rationales as to why your feelings are correct, and that this is common human behaviour (which is both extensively documented in scientific circles and should also indicate that I, as a human, engage in these common behaviours too). You are quite entitled to your views, you are completely free (and welcome) to express them, just as I am entitled to my views, and completely free to express them. Inevitably, there are times when our views will be in conflict. That is the nature of a forum, so I'm surprised that you are surprised. Personally, I have never felt the need to class you or any other poster as a kopite or similar. I did attempt to wind up Realist a bit when he first started making threads, purely because the act of making threads in the manner he did indicated that he was seeking to wind up others, but as he missed the joke and seems to have calmed down into making more reasoned posts I have now left him to it.
To clarify on the subject, I still think we have a better squad than last season. The way that squad has been performing at times this season has been very poor, and there is much to discuss regarding that performance, but as the squad now won't change until January, I see no purpose whatsoever is trying to assign blame at this stage. Or any stage really, like all other fans I am stuck with the choices made by the board and management team and just cross my fingers that things will improve. Given the obvious quality of a number of our players, I have no doubt whatsoever that our form will improve. Whether that is next week or November remains to be seen.
