    It's ok just annoys me when people relentlessly attack other City supporters, but don't have the balls to approach them for answers.
    G knows what JE looks like so has no excuse, not like he is going to attack you for your views.

    What are you on about 'extreme mistake', it was just a mistake based on a misunderstanding.
    The fact that there were so many ripples on facebook shows the concern in the fanbase about the situation at the club.

    I think you should look at the effect, which should be a genuine cause for concern by the management of the club rather than concentrating on talking down someone who is a passionate follower of CCFC (one who has awards to prove it).

    By extreme mistake I mean it isn't just the fact he said "look at how the club have let the pitch go", he went to the effort of finding links and other stuff to try and ram it home. The fact there were so many ripples is because people aren't interested in what actually happens and what doesn't as long as they can get angry.

    People couldn't give two shits if something is true, they just jump on and get angry. Same as when Juggy says stuff. There will be ripples, and once people have heard it they pass it on like it is 100% fact.

    I have never once mentioned anything about his passion for the club, I haven't doubted anything either?

    I'm more concerned by the Americanisation of Centre.

    You are defending Sisu.
    But you are right to do so as Kev is wrong.

    Totally confused I haven't said anyone was lying and my one comment regarding said character above wasn't attacking him.

    It isn't defending anybody is it? It is pointing out what is actually happening.

    It isn't SISU either, it is CCFC.

    Again, people aren't interested in what is actually going on they just want to be able to get angry.

    In what sense is taking the piss out of someone’s appearance not attacking them?
    Maybe the problem here is you not having any empathy with other people, think about it.

    Strange you didn't have an issue about LAST going on about somebody with blue shoes and stuff.

    If mentioning a combover is that offensive nowadays we had better give up now :(

    Why do you defend Grendel, he has an obnoxious personality, always slagging people off.

    It isn't, it is saying it is a bit soft to act all high and mighty over a comment about a combover.

    I can understand mocking disabled people, disfigured people etc but really? A combover? Remember tanned ken? On another thread people are talking about bellies hanging out under shirts and nobody has got offended yet?

    Are people really that sensitive? How have they managed through life?

    Pointing out the correct situation is the same as defending the CCFC/SISU position, surely.?

    Just wish you would be more proactive on actually pointing out SISU/CCFC faults when they actually do occur. This board could be so much more influential if it did. Instead it's deflects the situation onto others and the main culprits get away with it.

    My comment was aimed at someone who seemed to be trying to take the piss out of my appearance on Saturday even though it wasn't me.

    Really?

    OK, what we should do is all make up stuff and then tell people to stop defending SISU if they point out it's wrong.

    The funniest thing is, shit like this and Juggy's rants deflects the actual goings on more than anything. While you post your made up stuff, while others have their rants about SISU milking the club etc. The actual issues aren't being addresses are they? I agree though and have been saying it for months, while everybody is looking at SISU and the club for things then other people can do exactly what they want...

    This is a forum, it isn't meant to be influential. Everybody can have their own views, there isn't a "group" view.

    The amount of crap that is spun that people get angry about, it's shocking.

    I HATE SISU THEY TAKE ALL THE MONEY OUT THE CLUB NOPM.
    SISU TAKE ALL THE PROFITS NOPM
    WHERES THE MONEY???? THEY ONLY HAVE RENT AND PLAYERS TO PAY.

    One of the biggest issues in all this is that people seem to be misinformed. The people who shout the loudest are usually the worst culprits as well.

    Surely, even you can see that while people get angry at SISU for thing's they haven't done it won't actually bother them? People shouting at Chris Anderson over a pitch that is being dug up for Wasps?

    Strange - never see you attacking
    people who hurl abuse at fisher, Seppela et al. I'm sure that administrator guy was likened to having an appearance of a paedo - or was that fisher and his beard?

    If there is one positive about this club going out of existence it would be not having to associate with idiots who think postings facts is having an agenda.

    That's what I don't get.

    When people stick to the facts it can be much more damaging can't it?

    It's like the fans forums, if you had somebody like OSB quizzing them about the accounts (that are fact and in black and white) it is going to challenge them much more than somebody saying "why aren't we investing 20m in players this year".

    I think certain people are just stirring the pot though...

    In all seriousness though, we will never be able to hold sisu accountable for their mistakes if they get blames for everything under the sun.

    I told you to make threads if you have an issue but you haven't yet? You made the one about the just let it happen but nothing else?

    Just watched the video of Tim at the planning meeting and apart from the microphone cock up at the start his 3mins get used quite well. He talks some sense although he's not not speaking anywhere near fast enough given he only has three minutes and a lot of stuff to get through. I thought it was a shame he wasn't given longer.

    The answer is that you can discuss what you want.

    Things like SISU OUT or Council out wont be stickies.

    If you want to discuss things, then discuss them. Simple really.

    I am not sure what you want? Other than to try and force everybody to agree with you?

    Nice one for someone to clarify from club end. Let's see how they can find a way to twist this.

    Is kev still going at it?

    Maybe he should blame the council, csf and wasps?

    I don't get what he is trying to achieve? That's what I mean about lies, not just a mistake.

    People trying to get the telegraph involved, what's going on with it? Why so eager?

    Still, I bet it's taken the edge off the pool and the rugby suite being built ;) amazing how things like this always come at the same time isn't it?

    We really do have some idiots. I've noticed a lot of new members on here lately also, to co-incide with news coming soon that we can't be accomodated at the Higgs?

    More than likely!

    Not sure what our own fans gain by making things up? It's getting.more and more common.
