  1. aw-such a tease as ever BGA. go -on -live dangerously-give us a clue . why not provide the fourth letter of the new soponsors name-then i can spend the close season guessing who they will be, as opposed to spending the time platting my nasal hair
  2. I know we have thanet taxis sponsoring the sand BGA, but i was thinking more of significant shirt sponsorship,so you are advising that is also 'sorted' for next season then. and that is thus with who ?? Perhaps my definition of sponsorship is a bit different-i normally associate it with a company/individual handing over a fair and reasonable sum of money in return for the promotion of that company/companies products/trading activity .
  3. who is (one of) the sponsor for next season then BGA ?
  4. good post NKN. very valid points. 12 months ago,despite the alleged high wages,TB was saying it was hard to get players to margate-but he was able to 'sell the (Lasletts ) dream-new ground, division one,etc etc. well that was a load of boxxxcks. so its left to NB to sell the nightmare-smelly portacabins,relegation battle/low wages etc . I can see a team being made up of Nikki's mates-players who NB knows ,and he'll call in a few favours-but maybe havent got the quality required.still-any team is better than no team. equally as NKN says-how are the club going to pull in the
  5. so what are these specific 'managerial skills' that you seek ?-UTG. once definedhow do you know if he has or has not got them ? What specifically is experience ? TB was extremely experienced. Jim-i have lots of managerial experience -Harvey is very experieced-but has won nothing of consequence. could 15 years experience mean that i have been doing a job the same bad way forthe last 15 years ?
  6. totally agree UTG. Nikki Bull should be given a 2 year contract tomorrow
  7. forgive me if i think these are some really odd posts. first to admit that i thought bull was the wrong appmnt. Having seen and listened though-i now think he was absolutely the correct appmnt (well done the board for ignoring most of us on this issue at least ) I hope to see him appointed for next season real soon. his work ethic and what seems to be meticulous planning will be winning results. need two more wins to be safe,and then we can lose all the other games as far as i am concerned . its all about next season.
  8. good video to be fair. new breed of manager syndrome-all good. take the point about JS,floyd hasselbank and a few others. i would suggest though that there is a massive difference and massive more pressure , taking on a team halfway through a season, who are in relegation spot, and where you have been part of that team yourself. it'll take more than half a season to distance yourself -and unfortunately-the next 4 fixtures are as tough as they get-which will mean the pressure mounts. wishing him well to pull it off. Up the Gate
  9. like everyone, i really wish NB well-and hope it works out for him,club and supporters. i think i am more aligned with NKN view . I so want to be wrong-but an honest view is that end of January, team wqill be in 21st place, panic will set in.just like holloway before, NB will be told its not working,re-offered opportunity to stay on-won't as a point of principle and the club will be looking for another manager and a good goalkeeper. that said-decent start today-realising that he can't both manage and 'keep. so sacked himself as captain as well then. Good luck NB Up the
  10. those advocating current players as managers,may wish to reflect upon how successful Robin-we're goin to bash'em-Trott was ? did he not successfully take a side that were storming away with the league and promo certainties to about 8th in a matter of six weeks
  11. they wouldn't be my first choice but when i read about the likes of richard hill and steve browne being bandied around, whilst i only observe characters from the outside-without knowing them (and supposedly opposites attract )i do wonder whether there would be a bit of a personality clash with Mr Laslett,and indeed how they would take to Mr Pope . Jamie Day still for me-but one name most of us have bypassed-again not (quite for me-although suspect we could do worse ) would be Jake Leberl (CK taught him all he knows ?)

    whilst on a personal perspective i like the purple kit,(and it is purple/not blurple-but very clearly purple )are some things just sacrosanct ? You don't go meddling with graves. similarly-is it a case of you go changing things without very careful consideration,whoever your God is,has a way of punishing you ? are there spirits out there conspiring to blow the ball out of the net ?

    for all i care, we can misplace every pass, but just win the game. apart from all of that ,accepting every media has its place and uses, nice to read some varying views and a modicum of debate as opposed to one liners and ploughing one's way through posts on pub meet up times

    Havant

    seems a bit harsh to me Chris,but respect your view. i'm not one for 'performance'-couldn't care less-just want three points and to win everything-i even get upset if we lose the toss for choice of ends,but notwithstanding that-if margate do perform 15% better (and i have doubts that they can)we'll storm the league. play as per saturday-and will beat most teams anyway . In reality though-most games wont be played on nice pitches with nice football,it will as ever be about grinding out boring wins .

    Havant

    If it was a HDP-we would have been saying what a gorgeous pitch. it really was lush andwell cut wasn't it. I thought for one minute we were playing at Augusta National ?

    Havant

    i note in his interview-Lee-i have really neat creases-Bradbury says for the first goal -Margate simply got caught too high' absolutely right-why plunge everyone forward ,and then all out of position and running backwards once possession is lost. poor defending regardless- but it started with being too 'gung ho ',and we rightly got punished .

    didn't see whitehawk, where supposedly we played better;but i think everyone is a bit harsh on yesterday. I thought Margate-did ok-and if there is more to come that augers well-but imo;not too much wrong with yesterdays performance-most game would win on that performance-even first half.mainly margate second half. we will never know-but had Greens shot gone in-would that have changed the result -fine margins. missed Lewis Taylor. that all given-there were two negatives for me. Love Bull-but i hate seeing goalkeepers as captains-supposedly it does not matter as the experience

    it may have been mentioned elsewhere, but in the blurple: are we Fiorentina in disguise ?

    New Kit

    yet to see in the flesh, the blue, purple or blurple home kit whatever it is,and again, no big issue for me-albeit i suppose i slightly err on the traditionalist side of why go quite a few shades off the current colour ? main issue for me is -why have the club done it ? club obviously does not have to justify itself and 'ask in advance' but i would have thought that on such an issue which has obviously caused a bit of a stir-and changing the club colour from blue to purple is reasonably significant i would have thought-i would have thought the club may have issued a statement along

    can empathise with those who think the blue is not the traditional margate blue. to be fair-have not seen it yet in the flesh myself-but it certainly does look blurple.(n o-one has yet said if that was deliberate on behalf of club or did manufacturer/mr Pope make a small mistake? i suspect deliberate decision by the club-i have no problem with that-as i must admit-i thought the old blue was a bit of a boring shade of blue-but again-can see the traditionalists position and respect accordingly we are all going to see things slightl differently, and as above whilst i generally like

    yet to see it in the fleah so to speak, but meant to add that i do like the red flamey bits in the sponsors logo on the blue shirt and sets off a nice contrast and looks quite dramatic !!

    New Kit

    can't say i'm excited or disappointed by the new kit. looks just fine to me, but just win the games no matter what. i did think the yellow is slightly more mustard than yellow-maybe in ideal world-i wouid have had it a fewshades lighter-but hardly matters. one area where i do need a bit of educating is on this 'chevron thing.'which apparently gives margate its identity. whats all that about ? marketing hype ? again- i am neither for or against the chevron-just need to understand its significance-or is it a made up significance ? its loosely like the shirts of the 60'

    New Kit

    absolutely. and i can't wait to see sammy moores margate debut either. i do like the lemon kit in one of those childish moments when you can't sleep and you think about all sorts of irrelevant things-i was thinking a couple of months ago, that yellow as a second kit would be ok,so pleased with that correct me if i am wrong-but i don't recall margate playing in yellow before. Dreamland -hows it doing.what are attendance the numbers like ? not local so don't know-hope it does well as have some good memories there. when it opened-i did say to my son that i thought it would

    does it depend whose modelling it ?

    so it seems. tres bon. surprised that the club have not made more of it though. seems a bit understated on the clubs behalf-when many supporters seem to get the hots over this.
