Re: 3 players released

Burn should never have been given a two-year contract, especially when it was him - allegedly - that approached us to sign. Ainge should never have been given a two-year contract after his serious injury either. benefit of hindsight? IIRC both players seen as positive signings when they joined? Mos...

Re: Signings

Definitely do not want to see Ainge up-front again next season, it was awful to watch. Personally I thought he was half decent in the first 8 or so matches, but we didn't play to his strengths. He was out injured after that, then in and out of the team mostly as a defender, with a few cameos up top...

Re: Released players

I would look to bring in Turner if we have the opportunity did excellent when he came in and I would also bring in Smith from Barnsley. Not sure if he has been released but word was we were looking to sign him. Yeah I’m sure I heard that Smith was all set to sign in the summer whilst TW was still i...

Re: Signings

Ainge has two problems last season:

1 - He was horrifically unfit throughout.
2 - He is a target man who relies on wingers getting into the box and whipping balls which is the opposite of how we played.

I hope he does somehow because a roaring success but I can’t see it.

Football is a game of options and this is especially true regarding Burn.

I can't say he chronically underperformed as he simply hasn't played and looked okay, alb...

Re: BM or HP

BM is far better.

I had a much better viewpoint at HP because I always stood on the (out of bounds) embankment.

When the embankment was enforced close (as it was supposed to be every game), the view was the same as BM.

I don't think this means that White is necessarily to be retained by the new manager but is kept on to keep the academy, etc, fully functioning. When new appointments are made this may be reevaluated.
