Re: ''Donation” scheme

I've just clicked the button on a £10 donation which ups the total to £116 from 11 investors. No doubt more will come in as folk decide that they can't make the game today so will opt to put a few quid into the pot instead. I will be doing this on a semi regular basis (i,e, not a monthly direct debi...

Re: AGM

Just thinking back on what was discussed - after being quite happy about what divas was postulating, it's a bit sobering to read LLs thoughts about costs and the probable impossibility of achieving it all. Regarding our own place at the Arena, to be honest I think a 2,000 seat stand would be diffic...

Re: AGM

Thanks for the update. Was there any expansion on the specifics of the budget reduction? That sounds a little ominous to me, given the size of the squad now. I agree we need to use the loan market as most clubs at this level do, but how do we effectively downsize what we have now, and be in any way...

Re: Harvey Saunders Departs

A good move for him and good he is back on loan. Rightly so Fleetwood will want to manage his game time I guess, so I wonder if he will be available for the "Derby" next week? If not TW May have to select Burn at the back and play Ainge up front unless he is going to blood the kids? I think it was ...

Re: Sat 29th Dec - Ashton United (Home)

Realistically, we'd only have improved because TW has brought in half a team on loan And that's only because he's been forced into it... (although to his credit he does have an eye for a player) I think we could do a lot worse when he eventually leaves his management post with us, to offer him a ro...

Last few comments are about right, same as if we win on Tuesday night that doesn't make Wright a genius and a job for life, just the same as losing a two goal lead yesterday against 10 men isn't an instant out the door.

Re: Styche gone this week

Maybe some people are reading too much into this transfer? Maybe the simple answer is that we were offered a sum which at least matched our valuation of the player and we accepted it. If say in 3 or 4 months we are mid table or bottom half, and Reece's form is similar to it is now then it may be unl...

Re: Tom Elliott

Hopefully he can cover RB too. Pretty happy with that squad now. We only have 6 defenders, one being a 19 year old youth, one being permanently injured, and one often injured. I'd say we need 2 defenders. I know Elliot can cover right back, I know Ainge can drop into defence, but that's not ideal. ...

£75k is a decent amount, I hope we have some sell-on and appearance clauses in there as well.
