I thought Finucci upped his game at Fife and good on him but to be honest that level of player makes you a 2 line team and we all know about the injury year on year scenario. Regards Isaacs I would rather have had Sourroniemi or Delahey at the back. Wonder if Dolan might be in the plans this year, Flyers could do a lot worse on the Brit front.
Just to explain my point....... It's not just frustration of the fan base that requires a boost it's the fact that the club needs enthusiasm / promotion to encourage ticket sales,sponsorship etc how the heck can you expect a substancial income from season tickets, sponsorship cheques or the likes with the lack of commitment shown by the club from the owner down, or put another way ....would you use those tactics to run your business.
What I meant by a Marquee signing is not the likes of Scoon or a less than average import but more like a newbie for a first line slot or an enforcer the club have lacked for the last couple of years with fans watching the team being bullied out of more than a few games, especially sickening when you see the goalie being run and virtually the full team look the other way.
To me this is a major gaff from HQ announcing Shane as the first signing after all the flak (well deserved)they have taken for lack of news, having said that I liked Stockton as a player and really hope this works out for him. Next man up needs to be a marquee signing imo and fairly soon at that or the last of TD's credibility for me is out the window.
Davie, put yourself in Todd's shoes. ....he is getting paid good money to do what he does so saying yes keeps him in the sport he loves unfortunately it's people like us that pay the tab and don't like what we are being served up.
Davie Fife Flyers are still a toy, if the supporters had the same attitude the club would have been gone long ago, instead of settling for mediocrity they should be striving to fill the building and actually make it that Fortress we sometimes hear about, a building where opposing teams hate to visit, the ingredients are there but will never happen until the owner smells the coffee as they say and has a clear-out of most of the off ice staff.
Too many people are still thinking Small Team Scenario .....well it didn't stop Coventry and Cardiff getting on the top rung and they are not any bigger a club than Fife. The blame lies firmly on Tom Muirs shoulders the potential is there to fill that rink and have a competing team on the ice....it aint rocket science or impossible but straight away before a puck is dropped this season the lack of ambition comes directly from the owner with Todd being appointed Head Coach....just another puppet with T Muir plucking his strings.
THAT IS SOME RABBIT OUT THE HAT, will his budget allow him to put a competitive team on the ice or will he have some friends back home to help out on the cheap, the last 2 Russians were impressive enough last year with Vorobyev outstanding for me (ex Blackhawk player though)
