Re: 2 New Signings Today

Saw a fair bit of Muggleton when he was at York. He's solid enough if unspectacular, not really one to go belting forward and beating a man.

His throw has to be seen to be believed though, absolutely massive! Think Delap with an extra few feet.

Re: Hartlepool match confirmed at BM

What it'll be is two youth teams playing in a competition hardly anyone has heard of yet alone cares about being hijacked by a dozen or so Stone Island wearing, knuckle-dragging dickheads playing hooligan after a couple of pints of Carling. To say this is a rivalry when it's not even the first teams...

Shirt sizes

Just a quick one before I order. How forgiving are the replica shirt sizes this year? As a bit of a lump I'm usually between an L and an XL.

Don't fancy my man tits in a skin tight shirt but don't want it hanging off me either.

Cheers.

Re: Local Clubs Released Players

Louis Almond has apparently turned down a new contract at York. Spent a lot of last season injured but there is a decent striker there to be had assuming he is now fit again Not for me. He's a lot like Connolly who they've also released, only with less ability. Has a very good game then does nothin...

The ability is there, but he seems to think of himself as League Two player minimum which reflects in his attitude and training.

Has a record of injuries too.

Re: Local Clubs Released Players

Thought it might be an idea to have one place for plays released from local ish clubs that we might be looking to sign. York are the first to announce with releasing Connor Brown, Aidan Connolly, James Gray, Sam Muggleton, Daniel Rowe, Michael Rankine, Luke Simpson, Connor Smith, and Theo Wharton. ...

Re: Bartlett has gone

I would guess the full time wage they offered him was more than he was getting between us and his current job. Enough more that it was too good for him to turn down. There's also the possibility they'll fund coaching courses for him alongside him playing. Either way, he did well for us and I don't b...

Interesting you think our board had no say in this. I know Gray is everyone's favourite bogeyman right now, but I'd be staggered if our board had no say in handing out the two year deals. Very true, though I'd wager they had Gray extolling their virtues and the board would likely defer to him when ...

Obviously Almond, Parkin, Morgan-Smith, Rankine and Gray aren't enough.

Still don't understand why Gray is so intent on getting Beck. It's not a reflection on Beck's ability, but he's already got Parkin who is in form and a cult figure at York as well as a capable enough backup in Rankine for the target man role. From what I saw of them last season what York need is a c...

Or maybe he was so bad we've just repressed him, like I've been trying to do with Ashlee Jones for years.
