Re: Tommy Wright: 19/20 Season. Yay or Nay

We will reap what we sow, we need to build the club over a few seasons to get it ready for the league above. It’s already been decided that the budget for next season will be based around loan players in the squad so that makes life even harder. Wholesale changes again in the summer will disrupt us ...

Re: 2 New Signings Today

Will be interesting to see what formation we go with tomorrow, esp with Hughes back and wanting to play. It looked like a 4-4-2 v Bishop with Henshall on the left and Thommo on the right, with Ainge and Harvey up front? A bit like how we finished at Curzon Ashton. I presume they’ll revert to 3-5-2 ...

That magic money tree again. Moan about Gray throwing money we didn't have at it, then argue we should be doing the exact same thing again.
