How long before new manager arrives?
No Guts ..... No Glory!!
By: Brisbane Mariner
THE longer the mediocre seasons go on the longer the shadows get of our glorious seasons of old; the days when our players played with pride and would die for the Black & White and even if we lost we didn't capitulate.
Sadly it seems that those days are long gone.
This disappoints me as I know it does others; I watch from afar 'viewing' games on ESPN Soccernet at 2am and sitting there watching the screen update with bad news thinking "where has the heart and soul gone from our team"....it is our team - we The Fans own that team, not like John Fenty does (he claims to be a fan - but some of his decisions make you think he's watching a different game!!) but we own in our hearts and our souls - we put our effort by paying to watch them, buying the clubs colours of Our Team and support Our Team on game days. Personally I make a round trip from Australia at significant cost to me to come and watch 3 or 4 matches at least once a season - but our effort as fans is not rewarded by the current playing staff of our once great team.
Sure we have never been world beaters but we have always had a red hot go and tried to better ourselves, the days of teams with players we have shouted for, like Batch, Waters, Wainman, Tees, Cunnington, Macca, Mendonca and the rest of the greats, these are but memories - the current squad and loanees (far too many IMHO) do not have the passion for the club or the colours!
If they do then I wish they'd start to display it because I think they leave it in the dressing room or at home............it is time that the players and the club started to give something back to us - the Fans - if we played our part like they play theirs then there would be no GTFC. It is simple maths.....no punters = no money, no money = no wages i.e. no club!
We the fans ( I know I take liberty here by suggesting I am representative - I know I am not but I am sure I am not alone in these type of thoughts) deserve better, we play our part. I for one am asking the Players and Staff of GTFC to start to play theirs because it is getting beyond a joke!
Simply put we need some Guts, then we will get the Glory!!
