Re: Defender on trial

Scotland, premier league or not, is a dead end country to play in. Unless you are playing for Rangers or Celtic its to be avoided at all costs. A player can end up wasting years of his career up there totally forgotten about. Whereas playing for a team halfway up the conference, his name will be on...

Re: Convery

I think he might have given Davey something to think about. He is the best crosser of a ball we've got, and also takes a far better free kick than either Smith or Dempsey. Didn't just sit on the wing waiting for someone to pass to him. Went looking for the ball, both right and left, and also looked ...

Re: FAO RAJ!!!!!

Sorry I upset you so much! I don't think the club were taking the p*** with their pricing for the last few seasons, despite the quality on show this season. We charge what the vast majority in the division do. How can you expect a new chairman, desperately trying to make us financially sound, yet co...

Re: FAO RAJ!!!!!

To state my position as a close to 100% home game attendee over the last 14 years who has not been a season ticket holder since 99/00, I will NOT pay £16 or over per game 22 times next season, I will be unlikely to even pay £12 and go to every home game unless we were dominating the league and play...

Re: Regional Leagues

I think the main attraction of regionalised leagues is the potential for bigger crowds, mainly if Div 1 & 2 amalgamated. We'd get Leeds, Huddersfield, Carlisle, Hartlepool etc, Torquay would get Southampton, Norwich, Brighton, Charlton etc. Bigger crowds less travelling. However, it still would be d...

Re: Rumour

Is Bower not a stopper rather than a sweeper. Played alongside Wetherall most of the time at Bradford, who I would have thought would have been the more "cultured" player.

Re: I agreed with M.O.M last night but Stan sort it out!

For the Notts County match, if we don't bring anyone in meantime, I wouldn't mind seeing us go 3-5-2. We haven't got a decent right back at the club, so let's not bother. Bring Jones in, then Foster, Giddings and Miller (or Bower). Gary Smith and Barnes to hold centre mid, Convery and Gray either si...

Re: Kevin Gall

Would he have been more effective second half on Saturday than those we played? Yes. We didn't close their defenders down, we didn't run the channels - consequently the ball kept coming back at us. Whilst I think Thomas did quite well out wide, he doesn't pressurise defenders, and for someone who ha...

Re: Giddings, Mulligan and Diop

I also thought Giddings could easily have been MOM. Their winger never beat him once, and he also won a few headers at corners. Didn't support the front men much, but definately made the left side look stronger. Mulligan is going to be a very good signing. Excellent touch on the ball, makes some gre...

Re: Very proud of the lads tonight

No it wouldn't. We had 5 clear cut chances against Macclesfield, so we would have doubled our tally for the season. Dagenham have a player, Paul Benson, who is a cut above most strikers in this division, and three or four other players who regularly chip in. They have 21 goals because they take the ...

Re: Brave in defeat.....???

Used to stick up for Conlon on the old board too. Patron saint of lost causes I am!! I'm not sticking up for Gall just because he runs around a lot, I happen to think that his overall game since he joined this year has been good. Why can't we get a target man who will score us 20 goals a season, rat...

Re: Very proud of the lads tonight

No you don't. The higher up the league you go, the more you need to be able to put away half chances. At our level, you need to finish the clear cut chances, and I don't think Gall's had many of those. I counted 5 on Saturday, none of which fell to Gall. Strikers who finish half chances at our level...

Re: Brave in defeat.....???

Here I go again defending Gall! No, he won't score 15-20 goals a season. Yes, we need to bring someone in who will score us goals, but why is it Gall who should be sacked off. I wasn't there last night, but on Saturday, he chased everything, when the ball was played into him he held it up, and broug...

Re: Gall misses sitter

For Kevin Gall this season read Danny Carlton last. If we had Abbott, Hatch etc then Gall wouldn't be playing. We don't therefore he is, and he's making a decent fist of it. He's slagged off for only being able to put a full shift in - to me that's more effective at our level than a player twice as ...
