Hi workrider

Welcome back

Just wondered what your thoughts were on Stephen Kenny ?

Any truth in the rumours that a few of the players are not warming to his methods ?
Report neill d May 15, 2012 6:59 PM BST
welcome back Workrider, look forward to reading your input on the flat during the summer.
Report workrider May 15, 2012 7:04 PM BST
monte christo, i'm very worried with the players reaction to his appointment tbh , if the truth be known the asst manager , glass , is my big worry ....even when we are ahead in games , he seems to arrive on the touchline ,  demanding players drop back....kenny seems to have given him permission to do same .....strange way of doing business imo....

thanks neill d ,was over in beverley last month ...really enjoyed that trip , a smashing little track , i was due to go to ripon the following day but went for a cup of tea and missed the bus .....te busonly leaves york every 2 hours s there was no point going on a later one .....the flat has been very good to me lately ....

Cheers wr.

I'd heard in the Setanta Cup tie against us that at half time the players actually kept him out of the dressing room whilst they had their own "discussions".

I'm sure it'll all come good though as you've far too much quality there imo.

In fact I think I could even manage ye.Laugh

cheers, just need the results now, I'm only a casual punter anyway. Those two would be a better class than you'd usually get through the summer especially Carlito. I wonder if they got another few runs into him could they for something like the plate in Galway

Great to see you back Workrider.
Your night at Naas probably revolved around which two Frank Finigan had on top,Dawn Approach the winner looks like a real good two year old probably wants further but definite Coventry Stakes material.
Telling people where you were is not boasting.

Unless Tennessee Wildcat learns to settle he will not fulfill his potential.He would probably have been second but would imo have been beaten a comfortable 4 lengths+.
