Re: Hereford....

No. He doesn't. He brings creativity though. You could argue, in games we are more fancied to win, that you withdraw one of the three central midfielders (Hatfield, Holness and Wheatley) for a more attacking / creative option. That could be Kneeshaw. Not sure I have an answer for clinical finishing...

Re: Hereford....

Despite playing all that time against ten men I don't have any complaints after that. We came so close and must have had 80% of the possession but it just wouldn't go in. You also have to give Hereford credit for a really committed, battling, backs-to-the wall performance. All we needed was a bit m...

Why was the goal at the end not given? The whistle went just after the free kick, but why?
Donawa was stood too close to the wall, need to be 1m away or something like that.

Re: Liam Connell - Boost the Budget

Which is why I said we should look at another alternative should we not secure Connell permanently or back on loan. Elliott isn’t a bad goalkeeper, he’s average and was doing average prior to Connell coming in. Is he that bad that we need to rush out and replace him when Connell will be available f...

Re: Liam Connell - Boost the Budget

Depends if you’re happy with 13th/14th place or not. We all want the club to finish as high as possible but we also have to be sensible with what we spend money on too. Elliott is not a bad keeper but Connell is better on what we have seen. However the deal has to be right for the club and we cant ...

Pretending you're on the fence about something when you've already made your mind up is dishonest... not that difficult.

Quizzical look. Do you have to vote for a "main party"?
Unfortunately until they bring in PR then a vote for any of the main 2 (or 3 at a push) is a waste of a vote in the majority of constituencies.
Both main parties wouldnt go for PR anyway so the chance of that changing anytime soon is nil.

Well if you represent the standard of labour voters then I'm glad i wont be voting that way.

Ainge isn't to blame for the contract he was given last year. At least he has had the decency to move on and play football elsewhere unlike another person who refused to go elsewhere even though they were matching his wages.
He played ok today, nothing flash. I don't see the need to slag him off.
