Re: Wham, bam, thank you, Stan - Accrington S (A), 3pm, 23 November

Looking at it again their player dived flailing his arms in the air. I thought refs had been trained a few years ago to spot someone who had been fouled (arms go down to the floor for impact) and those that dived (arms up in unnatural movement). Two very bad mistakes.

Have we any indication yet as to when we're likely to hear something?
It was mentioned not before Wednesday. So could be tomorrow (or anytime in the future).

Re: Tonight's Football

Crowd at England v Germany Women's football tonight,77,700 plus. Just mentioning. I'm reading this wonderful book just now, entitled 'I Think You'll Find It's a Bit More Complicated Than That'.

Re: Will our guile make Plymouth rock? FA Cup 1st Round 9.11.19 KO 3pm

One good chance in the game and Plymouth scored. Defensively they were very well organised and only gave us half chances. Not enough quality balls into the box. Although a pretty dire game, I saw more action in the first two minutes than all the five games combined I watched last season. Silver lini...

Re: Can we give the junior citizens the blues? Man City u23s EFL Trophy (H) 29.10.19 KO 7pm

It's also possible that Hill had drilled into Weir what he expected from him, and Weir just ignored it. The ball is in Weir's court at the moment for me. If he wasn't listening to his boss, he'll have to start doing so. Mourinho's been just as brutal (if not more so) with his players in the past an...

I may not have much choice:

Labour - never
Tories - never
SNP - not voting for independence obsessed
Scottish Greens - See above
Independant candidate - what's the point?

I think quite a few will have the same view.

Re: Onwards and Downwards: 2020 transfer speculation thread.

Seems like Joe Dodoo was released by Rangers before the transfer window closed (https://rangers.co.uk/news/headlines/jo ... s-rangers/). Free to sign for another team whenever he likes.

Do we have three places left in the squad? Perhaps Dodoo will be signing soon.

Re: Onwards and Downwards: 2020 transfer speculation thread.

What about Neil Danns (36 now) also at Bury? Can he do a job for us in this league? Limited player but always gave his all. Better than Murphy surely. I think we can do better, personally. Even in this state. I think and really hope you are correct but we might only be looking at freebies or loan p...

Nixon (whatever) tweets Hill keen on “the lad Dawson at Bury” I saw that but thought it better not quoting him. Did a bit of research on the lad. Stephen Dawson - 33 year old midfielder experienced in the lower levels (Mansfield, Bury, Barnsley, Leyton Orient, Rochdale). Signed and immediately made...

Re: The next manager

K.H. seems well satisfied to be managing Bolton and regards his appointment as an honour. Good sign for starters. As a manager he'll almost certainly get a grip on stopping us being the League One whipping boys. Sorry we didn't get Kev Nolan, but this appointment looks decent. Good luck Mr Hill and...

Re: The next manager

Marc Iles Tweeting we are due to appoint the new manager much sooner that expected (late next week was mooted earlier).

A Nixon Tweeting Michael James choosing and want an experienced unemployed manager.

All pointing to Keith Hill if true. We need someone and we need him now.
