Delighted we have a realistic chance to make more prize money but wouldn't it be great if we could have somehow had the chance to welcome a few live spectators also. like Alun Armstrong quite rightfully said all these years we've been saturated with away ties and now we're getting a few at home we ...

It was Tom the cabin boy and master mate. But hey ho its a good story. But werent the graphics amazing?
In original series which started on telly in1957 the characters were as stated by some of us who can remember it.
Later series in colour in the 1970's had the characters names doctored.

Same could happen to us , Hudson has a few very good games and someone comes in for him
If he has a few very good games for us I would expect he would be offered a contract before anyone poaches him.

Really liked the look of Charman. He could turn out to be the poacher we were lacking last season. ...

I accept that I was quick to express a judgment on Saltmer which may have been unfair but I still think it was surprising he was offered a contact after just two pre season games in which 8 goals were conceded.
That's because AA is the manager and you are an old git,

Naturally the momentum of BTB has stalled after a fabulous start. Hoping the showing of FA Trophy victory will give it a bit of boost today.
There are still many who will get paid at end of month.
Expect a late surge.
