Zip Low did well in the January transfer window and so far his extremely pessimistic views about signings this summer have looked justified. Next to nothing has happened over the past ten weeks. It’s been the slowest transfer window I can recall. So it’s hard for any journo to make things interesting with next to no material.

He does lack charisma but I couldn’t care less about that. He isn’t close to the players but isn’t that a good thing? At least he can report on player performance without feeling compromised.


And to be fair, whilst a few on here were saying Oliveira and others were done deals, Low said they definitely wouldn't be back at the club.

John Smith Where did that horrendous Al-Habsi rumour come from?! There is no way that butter-fingered clown is ever setting foot in my club again!


Nice to see you back on form John! :lol:

So today's transfer has happened without any local journo calling it. I know we're in a different era compared to Evening Post days but the quality of this lot is dire.

Low may be a nice guy and harmless but a journalist's job is to network and get contacts to get exclusives - like Watts did, so he has failed miserably on that score.

Well...they did say we were after James Morrison earlier in the summer - maybe they just got the wrong Morrison?!

You’re correct with your last paragraph. I think he’s too soft and not pushy enough to be a real high profile journalist

But I Just don’t get the people that consistently slag them off. I really don’t, and I saw one on Twitter today moaning about him taking a screenshot of something! It’s really simple, if you don’t like the content someone writes, don’t read it. It’s like people have to complain about something to make themselves feel better

It's weird isn't it. Experienced it a bit at work this week. People complaining about being too busy, too many distractions, and others not answering the phones.

I tell them to use a quiet room we have reserved and put themselves on do not disturb for a bit. Don't pick up other people's calls and give other people a shout to pick up theirs if they've had a few in quick succession. A week later, they've done absolutely none of that and they're complaining about the same things.

Don't complain to me about things you can do something about and just choose not to.

yeah he actually bit on that one, which I think is the first time he has done that. People on twitter are bloody weird. If its not just slagging people off, its repeating shit like 'Announce Miazga'. Just a bizarre thing to do

That’s harsh on Low who did well in January. Fair play to Courtney though. He’s done well.
