What's going on at Stonebridge Road??

Recommended Posts

Ford did throw a wobbly after the Margate match. You didn't listen to Matt Davison interview on Radio Kent. The most unprofessional piece of rubbish from a football manager I have ever heard.

Also true that he really upset Lee Turner. Try finding out the truth about Ford. Trust me you'd be better off without him.

Other than of course Mr Kinnear's performance having been thrashed 5-0 in the Kent Senior Cup Final, which we achieved without the help of a brain dead linesman!

Now why don't you return to your colouring book before one of the other children hide your crayons.

Am sure that I was replying to the alphabet footballer thread when I posted that.

Must be going mad in the heat?!

Who's Andy Ford upset today then? Mind you - have a look at the Dover forum. Jim Parmenter, Margate Chairman has upset some locals down there by placing an ad. in the Dover Express asking them to see Margate "home" games at Dover. lol or what

Is it really that boring and lonely down in Gate that you have to come on our forum cant you speak to anyone else down in Pikeyville or is it just that no one else can operate a PC why dont you go and annoy someone else with you stupid comments. Still think next week you can spend hours travelling back and forward from Pikeyville to scumville.

Why are you too ashamed? I dont understand you remould. You are too ashamed to watch your local team managed by the same man that got us promoted and kept us up? C'mon give him some credit. He may have had a falling oput with lee turner but he has done his best to rebuild the team. He has my full support and a lot of other peoples too

 

Lets all go down there and see what happens. We cant judge him until the final whistle has been blown.

 

C'mon You Reds

I would hope that Andy is judged on his exemplery record rather than a disagreement with an aging 3rd keeper.

 

Lets not live in the past, Andy could and should be a part in bright future , lets back him with all we have got.

 

C'mon you rip roaring reds....

Personally, I'd like to know who this "good authority" is, because he/she contradicts my "better authority" <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Well Personally the margate fans on here seem to seem to be contradicting my thoughts that they are all dumbasses!

They can clearly see what most Gravesend fans that post on this website cannot, and that is that Andy Ford has terrible man management and is not respected anywhere because of this!! If we had someone who had just finished his proffessional career with hmmmm Gillingham say, who knows and is well respected by alot of players as manager (Adrian Pennock for example) im sure we could attract alot better players than we are currently signing!! Also a couple of players from last seasons squad that formed the backbone of our first 11 would not have left! (I DO have that on good authority!) I know im going to get a lot of stick for posting this but this is quite a good percentage of the supporters view aswell as my own! Don't get me wrong Andy Ford done well to get us promoted to the conference, I am not knocking that, but I think it is a time for a change before it is too late to repair the damage!!!

 

Classic quote from the Burton Game "Come on Andy! You're turning this club into a F*****g Pantomine".

Andy Ford is still the right man for this club..This club LOST 60k last yr less we forget and we dont have the purchasing power to compete with most of the clubs in this league..I rant and rave like all others about the performances because we all care and im sure Andy cares just as much as us if not more. We may not agree with his team selections but his formation for the first 60 minutes was basically what we wanted to see (well i wanted 5 at the back) and we looked really good defensively. Get Drury back, get a striker and we'll win a few games.

Andy does care, as do the the players and, as was pointed out to me in no uncertain terms yesterday, so do the directors. If they weren't in their respective positions of 'authority' etc. they'd be on the terraces wearing red shirts supporting the Fleet as we do. There is total commitment to the club throughout, from tea-boy to chairman, and all in-front, behind & in between and I am positive we will come good and, if not set the league alight, end a respectable upper-mid table next April.

Well said drummer boy, it is refreshing to see an opinion that differs from the majority of posters on this forum, and you are not alone, there are other fans who feel Andy is not quite cutting it for one reason another - how justified some of their claims are can be questionable, however I have also heard from good authority what it can be like on the end of Andy's man management skills - let's just hope that he's more of an Alex Ferguson (having it his way or not at all) than a Kevin Keegan (losing the plot when it all go's pear shaped) tongue.gif

Correct me if i'm wrong but i thought we couldn't afford to sack Andy Ford?!I'm not sure how much good a new manager could do anyway,they wouldn't be able to buy players(especially after paying andy off!),they'd take time to get to know the players etc,and really,its the players who win matches,not the manager.

If we could sack Andy i don't think we should...yet...its been one game into the season,give him a chance,let the players gel...we'll survive. <img src="/images/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="" />

I have to say I completely disagree with Drummer Boy I think Andy, Phil and Ron have done wonders with this club where were we when Andy first took control shall we go back to the days when we used to change our managers every October after we lost our first half dozen games. Yes Andy will make mistakes and we will not agree with all his decisions and one day Adrian Pennock will be a great manager but I think that we owe Andy and his team a little bit more loyalty than get rid of him after one defeat. I accept that we do not want to start with several losses and be in trouble from the word go but I think Andy is painfully aware that we need a target man which is the area that we are weakest in and lets face it I do not think we can blame Andy for Bentley and Jackson leaving any ambitious player would leave for Dagenham. Hatch leaving was probably good business to get £17,000 for a player that would only play half your games anyway is excellent. Lets all be positive get behind the team and sing your hearts out at Woking tonight and see if we can get Che on loan for one match

Andy is absolutely fine where he is. He is strict over the players which is good, the moment the players get control of a club it goes wrong. A good manager who has taken us a long way and with a few helpful loan signings in the next few weeks i think will secure our survival with ease and go on to prove the bookies wrong on 2 fronts. Andy and Brian get on well and its up to us remember to get behind the team and make them want to play well in front of us.

 

Plenty of noise tonight and we will be ok. Trust me!!
