Re: Fans Forum Fri May 31st

Just to echo the thanks to DFR for this as well as all the other things they do to let people follow from afar.

Certainly helps exiles to feel more involved, much appreciated.

Re: Lee Clark

Wouldn't mind seeing him do well but it's a massive job there in a very different world to the one he's used to.

Maybe they'll take Burn off our hands if we're lucky.

Re: Released players

Parslow could do a job as back up if fully fit - certainly preferable to Jonny Burn but I’d assume his wages might be a stumbling block I'm guessing taking players from York, the big question is, will they be interested in leaving Professional Football to sign Semi-Pro for us Sent from my SM-G950F ...

Re: New Manager Poll

Shocked no-one has mentioned Craig Liddle as yet so there you go. He's heavily involved with youth coaching at Boro and seems he'd rather keep on down that road than a return to management, especially given the position we're in. I'd be happy with Thirlwell, Swailes or Aspin. Bower too but I don't ...

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.

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.

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.

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.
