After a long period of inactivity, today manager essenn decided that instead of releasing an official ‘announcement’, he would take a different approach and publicly answer some of the e-mails he has received over the past few weeks. Not all e-mails could be answered (nor could all e-mails be published), so listed below are the ones essenn has chosen to share with the public…
Q: Where have you been? Have you abandoned the mighty Pigs? Why hasn’t the blog been updated? (Steve from Springvale)
A: No Steve, I haven’t abandoned the Pigs. My passion for the Pig Hunters is as strong as ever. I’ve been very busy of late, that’s all. With so many things going on behind the scenes, I just need some extra time to deal with them. Unfortunately, the blog has suffered due to these circumstances… I will however try to make more time available in keeping our fans & supporters updated in the future.
Q: Hi essenn. I think you are doing a great job But I’m quite concerned about our recent league form What has gone wrong? (Danielle from Doveton)
A: Hi Danielle, thanks for the kind words Our recent results have been quite poor, I agree! The simple fact remains that we promoted into division III when we clearly were not ready to. Our change in training strategy last season forced us to throw younger, inexperienced, and less skilled players into the starting line-up. We’ve also had to adjust our style of play to accordingly. At the start of the season we were aiming for survival, and that is still our aim now. Luckily for us we managed to get some results go our way early on this campaign which has certainly helped!
Q: Ever since you sold Sevin, we haven’t won a game. Why the F%#K did you sell him? What a major f%#k up! You’re a total disgrace you f%#wit!! (Colin from Coolaroo)
A: He had to be sold because he was taking up a training spot, and I felt that one of our younger boys could benefit greatly from getting 100% training. Sevin was the oldest trainee, he had to go, easy as that. We’ve got another Piglet coming through the ranks that will be promoted next week, so expect a few more players to be sold over the next few weeks. Oh, and he also refused to ‘do’ your sister… but why doesn’t that surprise me!! Piss off Colin, you f%#stick!
Q: Any truth in the rumour that you are about to launch a 2nd team? If so, how will this effect the Pig Hunters? (Frank from Fawkner)
A: Yes, it is true. Although nothing is official yet, I have decided to start a 2nd team right here in Oceania. All the relevant paperwork has been submitted and I’m just waiting for the application to be approved. I will not reveal the name/identity/colours/logo of this ‘new’ club on the Pig Hunters blog, as it is a totally seperate entity and has nothing to do whatsoever with the Pigs. I hope this somehow answers your question about what the effect will be.
Q: Congrats on qualifying for the GL3 finals! Do you think we can win it? What are your expectations? (Katie from Keilor)
A: Thanks Katie, I hope we can win it If you had asked me a season ago before we switched training, I would have said ‘yes, we can win it’. But with GL3 running over a period of 2 seasons, and given our change of focus, I would say it will be extremely difficult for us now. We have a very tough task just to survive in III.4 and that is our no.1 priority, so don’t expect much from the Pigs in GL3
Q: Is there any chance that we can bring back some of the ‘pink’, and have the girls from Kittens provide the half-time entertainment? Just like the good old days? I really miss them… (Robert from Rosemeadow)
A: Yes there is a chance, Robert. We have settled our differences with the
slutsentertainers from Kittens, and I am currently in negotiations with them to make a long awaited return to Satellite 15… so stay tuned!
