  1. You all wind each other up. It can be quite entertaining though.
  2. I think the point is that they *could* do all that good new stuff without needing to call it something different. The "B Team" will, afterall, still be competing in the "U23" league. But... I understand why it makes sense to change the name as it helps reinforce the new practices. So, it looks like a good move all round to me, both at a practical and philosopical level.
  3. By jove, it's only taken him circa 14 years but I think MLG might be onto something here..... Just wonder how many years it'll take to refrain from taking the bait now that you're on the cusp of understanding what's occuring....

    Indeed. Beginning of the end of the beginning of the end maybe...?
  5. I'm tending to agree with this now. I admit I was one who was singing his praised after the snippets of post-lockdown games I saw him playing in. He seemed like a different player in those games. But, agree, in the play-offs he did appear to revert-to-type compared to those earlier games I watched. Might just have been play-off nerves kicking in I guess? Who knows, but on balance I think we can probably do better (the McKinnie fella for example)
  6. It would have been significantly less than 43 pages if everyone else had ignored him rather than rising to his bait....
  7. I'm guessing that most of our "reserves" qualify to play for the U23s at any moment in time given we've got one of the youngest overall squads, I believe (I'm sure MLG can correct me if that's not the case). Ergo, both the "U23s" and "Reserves" labels are pretty much interchangable. Other teams who have more "reserves" in their squad that wouldn't qualify for the U23s league wouldn't be in a position to do what we're doing. (i.e. squads with a significantly higher average age than ours) In other words, Ralph and Croker could have changed the modus operandi around how the two most senior tiers of football at SFC intergrate with eachother without having to change how they were badged, but "reserves" probably works better pyschologically with the players than "U23s"

    P.s. I'm happy to pay a tenner a year if that's the difference between a forum that works and one that doesn't @stevegrant
