Re: Brackley V Darlington

I wasn't going to but, I just watched the highlights , my advice is don't , it will destroy any hope you might have for Wednesday. Thanks for the warning, but a bit late for me. Hot knife through butter in the first half with a lack of tackles upfield & letting them run at pace down to our box, the...

Re: Louis Laing

Laing can cause the defence problems, but mainly in ours. Agreed he is good in the air, but not sure he is able to turn or hold the ball up if he played CF, like O'Neill did. Really need someone from midfield to run at their defence & get into the box to create chances. Would love to see Thommo take...

One ray of hope to come out of Brackley was the debut of Lambert in 2nd half (which we won)

Hope the lad has brought his shooting boots with him. If AA thinks Jack can do us a job, then he must have some talents.

Re: Tonights results, Tuesday November 12th 2019

We do have 2 games in hand, there is a lot of away games ahead of us, if we play each one as if its a cup game, we will move up the table nicely. :) Trouble is the squad is stretched by recalls, injuries & international call-ups not to mention the red & yellow card situation. Even if AA can bring s...

Re: The Squad for Brackley and FA Cup

One way round it is for the rain to keep coming down in Brackley & Darlo but forecast doesn't look too bad :( I know we have a massive cup game next week, but we really need the Brackley game to go ahead, as we'll end up in a massive fixture backlog if it doesn't go ahead.

Re: Osagi Bascome and Justin Donawa

I think I saw a £100k figure on here brought in through the cup run so more than enough for Alan to strengthen the team I would have thought. Only a fraction of the cup run cash would be available as there are long-term commitments which also need the money. Best we could hope for is to get O'Neill...

Re: BT Sport...

Thanks to the 500 members for helping to get us started. This cup run will help to make us self-sustaining if we invest in our future & not splurge on mercenaries. Ok we may need a couple of emergency signings to shore up a stretched squad, but I would trust AA to do the right thing.

Re: efl cup tonight

Looked like Clarke had his 1st team back for shooting practice. They are top of their table. Mark Cooper said "we were rubbish. I learned nothing. Saturday's game against Plymouth is more important" and had given an outing to some 16 year olds & 3rd choice keeper. Sounds like Walsall had been given ...

Let's take a leaf out of the Premiership when so many players conveniently get "injured" ahead of internationals then miraculously heal & fit to play in crunch matches.

As Roy Hodgson might say - we also played Wiverpool in our roaring twenties heyday. Applauded off by an appreciative Kop after a gallant 1-0 defeat in the cup. Also we should allow Wednesday after that 40 yard winner in the league cup. Before the league cup lost its lustre. Except he wouldn't thoug...

Capacity is based on crowd being 3 deep on flat area & no standing allowed on the grassy mound. Supposedly not all-ticket but limited so fans with season tickets or members of Supporters Group will get first dibs. Still time to join👍

Something suspicious going on here. Two home draws in half a day.

Any money coming into the club is welcome. Joe Public has to realise our club has to be sustained by the owners, - fans in our case. It is a tightrope existence so we cannot afford mistakes.

Re: Walsall V Darlington FA Cup First Round Proper

Baldrick has a cunning plan which involves us signing a big CF who is also selected for one of these international sides that play on 20th Nov. That way we would have 3 players away on duty and have to postpone the tie. This would deffo get us on TV as no other team would be playing a week later and...

Maybe the Bermudan boys will not be available for the replay? Any chance of some others being fit for selection? Hopefully the crowd can get behind the lads again & make the ddifference.
