Quoting really:
Quoting Question:
Please tell me this is not Kingboroughs starting 11 ?. If so they are in big big trouble.


I beg to differ.
They are by far a better squad than what Clarence have.
Don't underestimate what broday will do with them.

How do you know who Clarence have in their squad?

Quoting Anon:
Are coaches going to receive Red and Yellow cards this year like the ALeague.
Game could spend more time in the stands than in the technical area

If so Gabriel will be first

Quoting Good Grief:
#7 Agree. Coach out of his depth. Needs to be an assistant coach, and learn how to lead. At the moment, he is trying to drag people with him. Will come at significant cost to Zebs. They have a good list; get the coach right! Warrener is a big loss.

Well I don't think he has much underneath him to take coaching further

Quoting please get rid:
Gabriel Markaj is an utter embarrassment to what our whole club is trying to achieve, he thinks it is all about him, his antics is poor and he is making our hard working volunteers feel like our work is worthless. There is a lot better coaches out there - please committee release him before the season starts. I had friends come to watch and all that was mentioned was his poor behaviour.


So if he's an embarrassment to you all then do something about it.

Voice your concerns to the committee don't just get on here and use a anonymous tag to vent your frustrations.
