Re: Tom Kaak

Was Ton/Tom actually a 'cult hero'? :problem: I'm not really sure you could put him in the same bracket as your Hjorths, Dorners and Burgmeiers.

I heard he was a regular in the Palindrome World XI after he left us though.

Jonathan Hogg at Huddersfield to add to the list of former Arena loanees.
They all sound like they should be on some sort of Commons select committee, but that trio of Staunton loanees (Hogg, Collins and Davis) have each gone on to have pretty decent FL careers.

Re: Taking the Knee

As has been made clear time and again by the Premier League, 'taking the knee' is NOT political. Any booing at the London Stadium would've been, at best, ignorant.

Re: Team v BPA

I'd love us to sign a left-footed winger in the Richard Hodgson mould or a right-footed one who's comfortable going down the outside (like a Neil Heaney or Franz Burgmeier) as another option for when we're struggling to break down teams. Players who are neither tricky nor pacy, don't like to hug the...

Re: Team v BPA

Personally, I don't see why we can't go full tilt in both games and I've no doubts that Alun will have that mindset too. How many times have we seen managers trying to be too clever/preemptive in the league game before a big cup tie and end up losing both? I think it would be counterproductive to re...

So Guiseley will either be refreshed or ring rusty as it will be 3 weeks since their last game. They were really ring-rusty as it turned out, whereas we looked properly match sharp.
