If true then it’s embarrassing from CR and she needs to pipe down until players have actually signed.



Then again, when we've had weeks of silence folks weren't happy either. And previously when the club gave vague or non committal statements the fans also complained, citing 'why bother'.

Seems like there isn't really a right answer to give - maybe we're happiest when we have something to moan about? :P
Why not sign the player and then have a press conference. That's what most clubs do. I don't get the Miami Vicesque films. It's tooostentatious for a league 2 club and sends out the wrong signals. For me, even the snippets on social media aren't necessary and they look rediculous when nothing happens.

You'd have thought people were used to Carolyn teasing new signings,I'm sure she's been doing it for like the last 3 seasons :lol:

We've signed two quality goalscorers and still some seem like they aren't happy with how the club presents itself on social media. I personally couldn't give a flying fork about that

At the end of the day bobby it's their club and they are entitled to go about it how they see fit.

Unlike you I do care about how they go about things and how the club is portrayed. I just feel it gives an unpleasant whiff of superiority to other clubs.

Perhaps as one poster has pointed out, I'm overthinking it.

The person who posted it quite rightly apologised when he got slated for it. Why you would then go & do it again is beyond belief. :roll:

Maybe the club have done it again but inverted the roles and said player will "meet" Carolyn off the plane at East Midlands?

Didn't we have the same comments when Maynard signed for Plymouth at the last minute?


No we actually signed Maynard. My point is “IF” it doesn’t come to anything it’s embarrassing


Exactly, dummies were spat, toys were thrown & the Maynard signed, so your point has no validity at all.
A signing 'soon' may mean before the week is out. Just because a bunch of petulant cry babies want 'soon' to mean in the next 5 minutes, doesn't mean a signing has fallen through.

Don't get me wrong there are times CR would do well to tone it down a bit, in my opinion, but the point is the majority of the time when CR says a signing is about to happen it does.

Where's the 'like' button ?

surely he'll get a go in the Championship with QPR. He was way above League Two standard.

Chair is the best player that i've seen at this level for a long time. He won't be going to a League 2 team any time soon.

The new signing has put pen to paper. The delay is from the media team trying to cram in as many shots of Carolyns gucci bags, fake tits and expensive cars to edit together so we can outcringe the first attempt

Looked like the Radfords were still in Portugal on Carolyn's insta this morning, or at least she was.

Not that it may effect any signing.

It is possible to post photos and videos to Instagram feed and stories that were taken at any time.... I could upload one from my recent trip to Lisbon, but it doesn't mean im there now.

Yeah I thought that too, but he said in an interview he feels personally like he needs a full season in league two, however QPR will most likely give him a go, they're short on quality.

I know how social media works, but when the caption is 'early morning tennis', it's a bit of a giveaway!

Yes and it doesn't matter what the caption says. They probably are still there, doesn't mean much does it. We'll have more signings soon, not sure why everyone cries when they're not all announced at the same time. (not that you are Mustings)

Infinitely preferable, JL, to Mr Poundstretcher with his big hats, big cigars, electric fire and "stolen" car.
