I think they should be announcing a couple of key signings before any tickets are on sale surely......well anybody with half a brain would show some intention to compete to help ramp up the sales.......at Fife it's lose the Captain and let someone else leak the bad news out about the coaches return, the only consistency at Flyers is to get things horribly wrong.
The clubs official twitter account just congratulated Adam Keefe on his appointment as Belfast Head Coach with the Belfast PR attached ... before anything about our own Head Coach position. You couldn't make it up.
P.s - is there another sport like British ice hockey that's so bad for backside licking?
Amazingly, yes he did. Incredible that this man has so much sway with player recruitment. He has zero clue about how to build a team. It's people like him in charge who hold this club back from any modernisation. A recipe for disaster indeed.
I knew he offered him £25 a week to sign with Fife at that time but never heard the Kestrels reference before.
Zero clue as you say.
It was more than that. Albeit not much, but enough for me to believe Flyers actually wanted him for Flyers and not the Kestrels. I doubt Tam Muir could really have that opinion could he?
After 33 seasons, I can honestly say for first time...I don't really care and am not bothered if we have hockey or not in September.
Exactly the same. I stopped going 5/6 weeks before the end of last season and have barely thought about hockey since. Match night experience last season was truly awful- even Allan Crow saying this in his FFP article.
The club have a job on their hands enticing their fans back this season and most of us have lost faith in their ability to do anything differently. I'd like nothing more than to be excited about going to see the Flyers but I'm not optimistic.
Joined forum tonight, I'm a clan fan, but love reading stirlingflyers updates, just want to say keep them coming, you are what hockey's all about, your love for the team shines through and at the moment also your pain. Hope things change soon
Flyers did not beat Clan in a previous game with Russell in the net. Will Foxy do a Nicker job on Rosehill?
Not going tonight...... only so much drums and c*** announcers i can handle in a season.
Don't think Foxy would have the same joy with Rosehill. As difficult as it is for some to accept, Nicker is a bit of a joke these days and not in the same class as some of the enforcers the league has now.
We've got to beat them sometime. Had Cameron been fit I think tonight could have been the night but the effect of us losing one key forward is huge - 2nd line not as good, 3rd line less effective- basically a holding line, one less import defenceman etc etc. Lets hope we can pull it out the bag though
