Jacko

Recommended Posts

Not going to say much on this subject as I consider Jacko to be a mate, so my opinions are bound to be a little biased. But one thing is for certain, Jacko NEVER openly slagged off the manager or management prior to his move. He has been extremely loyal to the club over the years and considers this place to be his real club.

 

He is an honourable man that always put the club first. His reasons for going were entirely acceptable If it was a purely money thing, he would have gone years before. And of course he would walk back into the side, are you being serious if you think otherwise?

 

Why do you think he has been coming down to watch so many games while he has been injured? He still likes it here!

 

Anyway, its all entirely hypothetical at the moment, but it really is amazing just how short peoples memories are.

I agree, Andy. My post was directed at Daggers, not Jacko. I've also heard he's missing the club and I too would welcome him back, altough he'd have to fight for his place, like everyone else has to.

I think we were disappointed but not surprised when Jacko left. going on tour with Mr Bentley certainly did nothing to change his mind.

 

I think the skipper issue is a non runner, Jacko would not expect to be the skipper, Macca would not expect to give it up. I have seen Jacko a few times since he left GNFC and he is always just Jacko.

 

One thing people seem to have forgotten is how would Jacko feel about coming back, Yes we all realise he loves GNFC and feels its his home etc etc.

 

But lets not forgot he left to hopefully gain promotion with Daggers, that's all gone pear shaped he then has a long term injury,not a great season so far and its only November.

Quite right Andy - after all, didn't he turn down a move to Nottingham Forest a few years back?

I would have him back in a second! At first, he wouldnt have the captiancy, and he wouldnt be guaranteed a 1st team place, but he is my fav all time fleet player apart from Wilko! What Sky Channel is the Match v Notts County on?

Well that Skins gone then!<img src="/images/graemlins/shrug.gif" alt="" />

 

How about changing the skipper now as well... I think Shears would make a far better job of it!!

I had a chance meeting with former fleet manager chris weller who said that jakko had left the club after being told that he would not be captain this season and was unlikely to get many starts so nuff said

Look out for Paul Gibbs who was a trialist in tonights 5-2 reserves victory over Bishops Stortford. Left sided midfield/defender, very confident, skillful and experienced. No spring chicken, looks like he's been around a bit and is a bit hard! With our limitations on the left right now (Skins injured, Walshey unwell) he could be a prudent signing even though our squad is bigger than some 2nd Division sides!!!!

Sorry to say this but that is about as correct as the stuff Jacko puts on his fields in the spring! grin.gif

Why on earth would Skins lose his place? He is just as good a player as Jacko is, and he is just finding his form. As long as Jacko don't replace a certain right midfielder then I don't mind!!!! I'm not gonna mention who though!!!

He's a full back aged about 30yrs and was released by Barnsley last month. Joined them last year after spending a few seasons with Brentford. Looks useful but how about a proven striker.... Rushdens' Duane Darby is up for grabs right now???

Specifically the squad belonging to Notts County? <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

Well then, let's look into loaning him! We have no composure in set pieces, Andy Drury rarely starts a game, Ben Walshe is good, but he'll be gone at the end of the season, and there is not much good delivery to the strikers! Mind you, Ben Abbey's never in the box n e way. THERE'S ONLY ONE JIMMY JACKSON! <img src="/images/graemlins/bow.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/images/graemlins/applaus.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/images/graemlins/bow.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/images/graemlins/bounce.gif" alt="" />
