Re: Bournemouth, How do they do it?

Eddie Howe is definitely a massive factor in their success, I presume he takes a lot of motivation from injury preventing him recieving his chance in the Premier League, and ultimately ending his career early.

Re: My thoughts on the next manager

You are having a laugh right? Or know fuck all about football? The club is already rooted at the foot of the table - who on your list has actually coached or managed? Beresford! Bloody hell! Only Cooper stands out as an promising coach. I hope you are not on Raj's selection board! That is the main ...

The new manager

Whilst I have sympathies for Colin Todd, ultimately it is the right decision. Please can we think outside the box for the next appointment. No living on former glories (with either our club or anyone else), no feeding off the scraps or appointing from within. A hungry, inventive, strong and fresh yo...

Re: Rio Ferdinand's Geography Fail.

The Metropolitan Borough of Trafford is not in Salford or part of it in any way. Entirely seperate.

However, Old Trafford is just over 5 mins drive from the city centre, putting this debate into context.

I quite fancy the 'triple for £14' (£25 including line rental). I only really want the broadband and TV reception as we struggle to get one where we are.

I've heard mixed reviews, are they any good?

Re: Todd bringing in rubbish loan players.

Fair enough he had to cobble a team together at short notice with very little funds and the wages he could offer meant he could only bring in poor players, so naturally they are generally s***. But if we are going to bring in loan players or short term deals, these have to be better than what we ha...

Expectations

Whilst we are all disappointed by our poor start, has it really come as that much of a shock?

However, considering the constraints we are working ...

Re: Time to Merge???

How could they regionalise League Two if the Conference is a national competition and the Conference North/South would follow the same regional concept?

Also, the gates wouldn't particularly increase and the novelty would wear off 'derby' games as you'd get them fairly regularly.

Re: Increase in wage budget

Any loan signings we get we contribute most of if not all their wages. Gone are the days when the bigger club would just loan them to lower league clubs for absolutely nothing. That would be wishful thinking. If the budget has not been increased it's fair to say Colin Todd has told really well to g...

I really hope fans stop baying for an increased budget.

We need to consolidate and build sustainably if we are to have an actual long-term future without admin or crisis for the umpteenth time.

The fans will get the club they pay for, nothing more, nothing less. This is not Football Manager 2009.

Re: We look at 3 triallists

I think Gall could potentially be quite effective as a striker alongside Thorpe or Windass. I saw him play for Carlisle a few times when I spent some time up there and he was actually quite effective in a good team, even if he is a limited player, because of his pace. He won't get 20 a season but he...

I feel most alienated from my devoted support of the club when many of the supporters are inconsiderate fickle bastards, with no grip of reality, I don't feel part of that.

Yep, 4 on a season long loan at one time, under the age of 22.

We can also utilise 4 more short-term loans during the season.

However, only 5 can be in the match-day squad at any one time.
