Jacko

Recommended Posts

I agree regards to looking forward and not backwards, but I think that most supporters as well as the man himself would like to see him back in our side. He definatly dosen't see Dagenham as a good move and like I said would be more than willing to return top Stonebridge Road.

Yep, I for one would love to see him back and know many others who feel the same way

Reckons he would jump at the chance of a move back to the Fleet.....


.....I bet he would - it won't happen though!

Both Bentley and Jacko departed to 'a bigger club' - now it has all turned sour, Bentley has looked somewhat disillusioned compared to his early-season performances & Jacko 'wants to come back'.....

.....funny how the milk turns sour, isn't it.....isn't it?

What sort of message would it send to the players that stuck with us and signed new contracts.

 

Sorry Jacko you made your decision, and now you must live it.

IF the rumour is true, I think the players may realise that Jacko is human, capable of making a mistake and willing to admit it. If I remember correctly, when Tostao left, the other players were consulted to see if they would welcome him back - and they did. Given the years of loyalty and commitment that he has given to the Club it seems unfair to dismiss the possiblity out of hand simply because he took a decision that turned out to be wrong. We all get it wrong sometimes!

I can't answer that, but at the age of 26, maybe Jacko felt that with the Fleet's "steady progress policy" a move to a club, which at the time appeared to be on the verge of league status, would be his last chance of personal progress.

I think that given the number of times that Jacko was offered opportunities to go elsewhere and he didnt how can we accuse him of disloyalty how many of you would turn down the chance of furthering your career with a bigger company in whatever field you work. Jacko if it all turns sour please come back we would welcome you with open arms.

Got it wrong through making a mistake or becoming greedy?

That is the question.....


Hang on a minute you're talking about Jacko not Beckham, I don't remember seeing too many ferraris in the players car park so maybe accusations of greed are a bit harsh.
We are not talking about millionaires here, if someone offered me an extra two hundred quid a week to work for another company I'd find it pretty hard to turn down.
I can't help thinking that everone was perfectly happy for Benno to leave Aldershot and join us but when he leaves us for Dagenham he is accused of disloyalty. All those who think he would have been better off staying with us are wrong...he would have been better off staying at Aldershot but I'm bl**dy glad he didn't!

Jacko moved on for his own reasons and I wished him well when he did and I have seen him since leaving us, and the question of disloyality to the club is not an issue, it is just a change he considered as any of us would.But if you consider him coming back, what about Steve Mc Kimms postion, he stayed loyal to the Fleet and was made Captain,and then half way through the season the former captian returns, I dont think Macca would be very happy.

Before even thinking an opinion can someone tell me whether the pre season rumours that Jimmy was slagging the club off (particularly the manager) in local pubs are true. I was very disappointed when told about this as I thought Jimmy was great, but unfortunately if they are true then surely this shows lack of respect particularly for Andy. Anyway, I guess the decision is not ours to make. Too much good news at the moment to think about much other than what a difference 90 minutes of football can make. Let us hope the good news just keeps on coming. <img src="/images/graemlins/bounce.gif" alt="" />

If Jacko was to back, would he even get in the side? I wouldn't pick him ahead of walshe.


Maybe not, but at the end of the season Walshe's loan spell will be up, and I can't see us being able to afford to sign him permanently.

Personally, I would love to see Jacko back at the club. We can't really blame him for signing for Dagenham when he was given the chance - it's easy to slag them off now, but I'm sure most of us expected them to be play-off/title contenders once again. In fact, they were badly placed halfway through last season, but had an extraordinary run of form that put them right back in contention.

I agree that the captaincy issue would be a problem if Jacko returned (and I still believe that it is a big if), but it would be a problem worth having if we had the chance to attract one of our greatest ever players back to the club. And as for those who think players' second spells at clubs are often disappointments, think about Steve Portway. While he wasn't quite as prolific in his second spell with us, he still scored plenty of goals - so it's not always the case.
