Re: Retained list

We could actually field a reasonably strong team with those we have right now. Not one that will make the play-offs without some additions, but not one that would be relegated either. Contrast that with our position 12 months ago - a big difference.

I come on this forum to read and discuss DFC viewpoints. Arguments are part and parcel of that - it makes for interesting debate. But today two threads have been completely ruined by ridiculous arguments that have nothing to do with DFC. For the sake of users who frequent this board to read and disc...

Re: Retained list

I'm sad to see Cassidy and Wheatley go. Cassidy drew mixed responses from most fans. If you judge him by goals scored then he wasn't a hit, and I guess goals are what most people judge forwards by. But for me his work rate was immense and he brought a different dimension to our team. I don't know wh...

If he just needs some time to regain full fitness he could be worth taking a chance on, but the memory of Andrew...

Another factor on him going I think is where we are in the League. If we were sitting pretty in the playoffs with a chance of going up I don't think he would have gone.

Glad AA decided against resignation as finding a decent replacement for him mid-season would be a problem.
No reason for him to. It was an awful result, agreed.

Two games earlier we won 6-0 way from home. Nobody was questioning him then.
