Re: Player update - Rose, Charman et al

Yes it means that with a release clause in his contract any transfer fee may not be that high. That being the case it is all about the add ons we can negotiate with potential buyers. If a release clause is met I don't know that we can then negotiate further add ons? Yes this was my concern when I r...

We obviously need to sell Charman as he has been holding us back and turn Blackwell Meadows into a cabbage patch.

Re: Tyrone O’Neil

Good to get O'Neill back - hopefully he can do what Charman has done and establish himself as a top striker at this level - the ability is there I'm pretty sure. This, and Armstrong's interview, seems to be suggesting Charman will be on his way imminently, which is not a surprise and completely dese...

Re: Spennymoor game

Sounds like Spennymoor Town still can't organise a game. If they are serious about getting to the Football League, they will have to get used to coming across decent sized followings where there are a minority of idiots attached - it's the reality of football at a decent level.

Re: Boxing Day

Only 600 tickets, which is probably the safe level their away end can hold.

I'm not going - if a club can't guarantee my safety and take ownership of their responsibilities, they aren't getting my custom.

Re: Boston V Darlington

To be fair the referee is right on top of it The ref from Saturday proved that is no guarantee they will get the decision correct.. For what it's worth, it was a stupid challenge and gave the ref a decision to make. I do think however it was a harsh decision. As for the team, it's all a bit frustra...

Re: Darlo v Gloucester

Just watched the highlights - that refereeing performance was even worse than I thought at the time. The Cassidy incident is just mind blowing - he's looking right at it! If he thought it wasn't a red card, I could understand it. There's an element of subjectivity in that. But to give a foul against...

Re: Southport...

Unfortunately we’ve lost any sort of momentum. Gray got us to the play offs purely on the back of the steam we’d built up in previous seasons. The season after was a similar story to what we have now. More had to be changed in the summer than Alun would have liked and any team bringing in 10 or so ...

Good to see AA is still adding to the squad which will hopefully give us more strength in depth.

Re: Jack Lambert and Omar Sanyang

I was pretty impressed last time Lambert was here, so pleased with him coming in. He's got talent, so lets hope he can kick on. As Armstrong says, he could be a bit of a Campbell replacement in the squad, which we haven't really had so far. No idea about Sanyang, but good luck to him!

Re: Brackley away 14/9/21

An unexpected result, but a very welcome one. Hopefully a corner has been turned in the last game and a half - maybe its fitness after our covid pre-season break, or the signing of Cooper giving a more stable backline, or just the players getting used to each other. Whatever it is, if we can keep th...

Refreshingly similar to pre-covid times. Couldn’t cope with Rhead, struggled to break down the opposition, poor refereeing. It’s good to be back….

Hopefully the comeback is more indicative of the season rather than the first half which was so poor

Campbell and Sousa will be tough to replace. I feel we've brought in players who potentially could be as good, but there's a some real unknowns in that. If Nelson can get fit and rediscover his form, and if Mondal can find that form he had at Forest Green to begin with then we probably will be very ...

Very happy with that - absolutely worth the gamble.

Pretty decent selection of attackers now. Potentially one dominant CB away from a very good starting XI (easier said than done of course - but lets hope there's movement on this as the transfer window gets closer to closing for pro clubs)
