Re: 6 players leave

Campbell is a big loss.

Maguire and Liddle less so, but still a loss.

The other three no loss.

I actually like the prospect of this, Wheater and Hunt the new White and Foster partnership. Just need to make sure we have some fullbacks with pace. :thumbup: No thanks.

So what is your point of view?
I think Darlofan97 has summed it up perfectly accurately.

Part-time football is not a 'critical local service'.

One way or another the season had little realistic chance of being completed when it started. Looks like this could be the stopping point.

Re: Away to Bristol rovers

I don't think it was a 6-0 game. Four observations: 1) A great shop window for our players today not taken. Charman didn't turn up. What a wasted opportunity for him. 2) There has got to be an end product to Darlo possession. 3) If you don't shoot you don't score. 4) It's now so important who score...

Looking forward to this one with a real sense of excitement. Still massive underdogs but not no hopers by any means. Interesting to see that the 3 teams from NLN who have made it to Round 2 are all struggling with their league form. Brackley and Chorley both only won 1 out of 7 and below us in the ...

The midfield look a bit weak if we lose one of Wheatley, Holness and Hatfield. Two and we're in deep doo-doo.
This is obviously our best midfield formation - but remember we managed at Swindon without one of them.

Atkinson at CB if Wheatley is fit surely
If that is the choice then the question must be asked, what is Laing's purpose? He is a specific centre back and if he is not going to play there when we have an injury to one of our regular partnership, then when is he?

I would go with Laing.

Bang on.

Hatfield, Wheatley and Holness is our best midfield. Maybe Wheatley is injured or unavailable today, I don't know.

Reid would not be in my starting line-up. Not today, not next week, not next month.
