First paragraph - so for you the emphasis is on his quality and ability to do the job, which you say was not there in your opinion in the first six years. I would argue that several professional football managers continuing to pick him throughout those 6 years would suggest the quality was there (relative to others at least), but okay I understand your logic.

Second paragraph - Being 'Mr Average' in squad of lower league footballers does not equate to stealing a living for me. Does that mean that you think half of squad in each of the last 6 seasons were all stealing a living? The rest of your paragraph is a huge tangent that doesn't relate to anything I said in my post. We were not talking about his legacy or how many decades he will be remembered. We were talking about his last 8 years at the club.

Third paragraph - I see no need for such a deal. I think this is the first time I have mentioned you actually

Maybe it is better to follow this advice  '
'Don't feed the troll'


Otherwise the conversation with Marvo could go on infinitum or follow your advice you gave to me Cool, which ever is easier.

No 1) Of the 7 managers that selected Hoskins in that 6 year period, 6 were sacked and Wilder used him as a bit player. Hardly a glowing recommendation.

No 2) Stealing a living was maybe too strong, I take that back. Lets go with Jack of all trades, master of none.

No 3) Although that was in response to your quoted post, it wasn't actually aimed at you, more in the direction of the general throng. Apologies for any offence.
You do talk some absolute gobbledygook, youíd be hard pushed to count on less than 2 hands the managers in the entire professional football pyramid who havenít been sacked at least once. Managers who have been sacked include Alex Ferguson and Brian Clough, both prior to going on to be 2 of the most successful managers in history. What sort of qualifying statement is that? In fairness to you I donít think itís the content, more the method of delivery peppered with ridiculous analogies, nonsensical justifications and back handed insults that seems to rile.

The difference is those managers were sacked WHILE selecting Hoskins. Who knows if that would have been the case had they replaced him with a better player, may have made all the difference, we'll never know? Doctor was a poor choice for the latest analogy, so many more different occupations would have fitted the bill better, didn't give it much thought, extremely busy with my golf at the moment but I'm sure people caught my drift.

I rile people? You're joking. I never realised.

Well that didn't last long.

I don't think that was due to you asking for others to stop mentioning you. It was down to the incredibly poor analogy  Grin Grin You can't be a bus driver without qualifications either. You're going to have to work harder on this particular analogy...  Grin Tongue

I doubt I'm going to contribute anything of value to this "debate". But, for what it's worth, Sammy was pretty much useless until a couple of seasons ago. Once he turned the corner, I fell in love with him.

I did say "most" Everbrite.

I'd have loved to have seen him. His shot was supposed to be like a rocket.

My Dad always bangs on about Cliff Holton. Hardest shot he's ever seen, didn't always do a lot in games but scored goals. Whenever we are short of goals, he will always say do with a Cliff Holton!

🤣 I like you mate youíre bonkers, this forum needs characters like you. By the way, if youíre still putting yourself under pressure to Par holes your handicap says you should Iíll bet youíre busy with it. Singularly the worst piece of golf advice Iíve ever heard, and Iím not joking.

Having dwelt on this for a few hours, have estimated at least 17 goals from League 1 and FA Cup only. What do you think chaps?
