Re: 10 games in

As for the injuries, don't all clubs have injury problems? It's part of the season, and surely being a good enough manager means you can build a strong enough squad to cope. Yes we have a smaller squad because of budgets etc, but is our squad substantially smaller than the majority of sides in the ...

Re: 10 games in

We have a decent budget yes, thanks to fan donations. It would have been a shite budget otherwise. As for transfer fees and other money, they are irrelevant as they didn't form part of this years budget - they were needed to prevent us going out of business thanks to the massive overspend allowed fo...

Re: Southport v Darlington

I think Collins is in the same boat now. A perma-injured, bang average defender who can't complete 90 minutes, drawing a nice "Gray era" wage for basically bot all. We could probably get 3 decent part time players in from their combined wages. However they are contracted so unless they're prepared t...

Re: Southport v Darlington

It was important to keep southport down below us as it will be with FCUM as with about a quarter of the season gone the relegation zone is a bit too close for comfort. We dont want that still to be the case when the next quarter is done and dusted. Sounded like we were hanging on a bit against a bi...

Re: Southport v Darlington

Will take the 0-0 seeing as though we sounded under the cosh.

Positive - unbeaten in 2, clean sheets 2.

Get Wheatley, Syers, Ainge back and the next 2 league matches (Stockport H and FCUM A) look winnable.

Based on only having youth teamers to put on the bench because of injuries? Does that = intent?

Re: Styche and Ainge

Another one in the replace Saunders with Styche camp. 4-5-1 does work best for us because Syers is so good in that role that he plays - think MBW a few years back. It also works because Styche revels in being the spearhead of the attack. I'm a big fan of Ainge already because I can see he's got so m...

Re: Galbraith

For Alfreton I suspect we will stick with Ainge and Burn. We're definitely going to have a problem for Telford though, if Styche is missing and Galbraith still isn't fit. If we stick with Ainge at the back then we'd be toothless up front (no disrespect to Saunders but I can't see him doing much up f...

Of course Styche will play for them.

Gibraltar is about the size of a pin head so I can't see them having 11 players better than him.

Re: Ashton United on Monday

Is it too early to call this a "must win" game? I'd say not - we need to arrest this alarming slide. If we lose at Ashton we'll definitely get beaten by Alfreton and 1-2-5 would be an appalling start. Beat Ashton and it could be the start of a turnaround - though I still think we'll be lucky to get ...

My fears about the situation only increased after seeing the interview with TW. It comes across as so much more worrying than just one bad home defeat.

Re: Kidderminster V Darlington

I reckon our playing budget is 250k, possibly pushing 260k as we went over the 80k BTB target. Divide that by 18 players and it's 14-15k a man. Over a year that's £300 a week average for playing part time. I'd love a part time job which paid me that much! In reality the players only get paid during ...
