Re: Pre-season fixtures 2017

That starting eleven looks to be a 3-5-2.

Iles describes the trialist as "very interesting".

The word is that it's Alex Bruce, son of Steve.

Re: Young lads that went to Scotland

Is Alex Perry injured? He wasn't on the trip to Scotland despite turning professional with us, and it just seems a bit odd that he wasn't there when third year scholars were. As DSB says, with the transfer embargo restrictions in place it's difficult to see a young player breaking through. My unders...

Youri Djorkaeff

He was interviewed at the Star Sixes tournament in London earlier and managed to squeeze THIS in. There's also an interview with Talksport knocking about where he's particularly complimentary about us. I understand that most players will speak highly of their former clubs if prompted, but it's heart...

Re: The Promotion Commotion Transfer Thread 2017

With the transfer embargo still in tact and therefore the restrictions on the number of players that we can register remaining in place, it makes it difficult to bed a proffessionally contracted youngster into the first team by introducing them slowly because we need to make each registered player c...

Judging by the pictures on the official website, I might actually be able to warm to the shirts. However, it appears as though the home kit will include blue socks as opposed to white. And as for the design of the shorts...

Re: New kits for 17/18

Gary Madine's face sums up the way I feel about them. The nod to the twentieth anniversary is a nice touch though, I suppose.

Aye, we're missing that, too. :-)
Karacan and Derik can do a job DM. Also the young lad we are meant to be getting from West Ham.

Is Cullen actually a defensive midfielder?

Spearing won't be re-signing with us as confirmed by the BN, which probably isn't a surprise to anyone. He's owed a debt of gratitude for the part that he played in getting us promoted, and his character would have been very useful to the squad in the situation that we're now in, but now that it's ...

I see they now want an extra £20 to give you priority for away tickets. What a con. Can't imagine too many will pay for that

Perhaps they might if it means guaranteed entry to what could turn out to be a pivotal encounter at Burton Albion in the season's penultimate match?

Re: Ken Anderson - New Owner (Definitely. For Now ..... )

It's bad f*cking news if he's contemplating flogging the stadium. The ACV grants the local authority or council compulsory purchase rights "if the asset is under threat of long-term loss to the community". Presumably that might prevent Ken from selling it to someone who plans to flatten it and build...

Rooooooooooooooot! Fair play to us for getting to the end of the day in such a strong position after a shaky start. It's frustrating that our top order is so out of sorts as our middle and lower order is on a par with any of the other leading Test nations with the exception of India in my opinion. H...

I'll be even more surprised if Parky plays a 4-4-2 with Josh Cullen in the middle.

Fair enough. He's done it plenty of times before though.
