Re: CLUB BUSINESS/SUNDRIES ETC.

Moonshift had a fixed and floating charge in respect of any monies owed to it by Burnden Leisure (BL), first created in 2002 and amended in 2003. This was security against all monies lent by Moonshift/Fildraw to BL that had eventually amounted to £185.5million. £170.3m of this was written off in 20...

Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Thread.

A quick note a propos of nothing other than that Josh Earl has been shunted from No.3 to No.32 in PNE’s new squad numbers. A left-back or left-sided centre-back who stands at 6’4” - a full seven inches taller than George Johnston, by BWFCi’s estimation - Earl spent last season on loan at Burton. Th...

Re: CLUB BUSINESS/SUNDRIES ETC.

Interesting. Cheers. So we're headed off towards Dicky's Meadow again, would you say? No need to panic. FV have said that the imminent debts are covered and I see no reason to challenge that. FV have taken on quite a big commitment in the £28.5million they seem to have agreed to pay for the Group a...

Re: Season Predictions

12th-15th for me unless we can bring in two quality attacking players. Perhaps a couple of loans from our premiership neighbours. Our squad depth is much better than last season, however I don't think that we have brought anyone in to significantly improve the starting XI who finished last season &...

Re: Season Predictions

It’s impossible to predict. I think we are reasonable and have the momentum from last season and a tight knit group. But we lack goals and potentially some physicality. I honestly think we can finish anywhere and lots will rest on small margins. I’m relatively confident we will survive but top 8 is ...

Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Thread.

There’s surely more to defending than just size but let’s not forget that apart from our central defenders we do also have the likes of Williams and Bako who have height and will help out at the back. I think with IE’s systems it’s more important that the defenders are good on the ball, since that’...

Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Thread.

At the risk of coming across a bit BWFCI, barring Santos our centre back rotation is really short, isn’t it? George Johnston - 6ft 1 Will Aimson - 5ft 10 Alex Baptiste - 5ft 11 Adam Senior - 6ft I’m not someone who thinks centre backs need to be monsters, but this does look to be a particularly und...

Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Thread.

See IE is talking up Liam Gordon. I do like this - its a good sign when players struggle, come back in and the manager is prepared to give them a chance. He's 22 and clearly has lots of attributes but the loan potentially has done him good. I think there is something there and rather he'd be part of...

Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Thread.

When I look at the attacking areas of the squad and specifically at league one assists and goals - at this level I'd say you've got proven quality in Doyle, Sarcevic (though noted his attacking stats are much lower than league 2) and Delfouneso. Delf probably isn't the player he was. After that Dar...

Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Thread.

Ameachi needs surgery…could well curtail his loan as it was only till Jan anyway? Possibly but IE isn’t saying so. “We are obviously one light now in that position and we may be a tad light there anyway, so we’re looking but we’re not going to rush into things. We have to make sure it’s right.” htt...

COVID and circumstance may force his hand bud I suspect ideally IE would want to pick his (current) best XI v Blackburn, with only a few late subs. Dress rehearsal conditions. Is it still five subs in the EFL this season? Think it was only a temporary measure…?
Yep I'm sure that's the plan.

Re: Pre-season frendlies

Twitterati lauding young goalkeeper Hutchinson, but also plenty praising Comley’s performance at right-back. There’s something of a hole there if he wishes to fill it… No Gilks, Aimson or Johnston again.. must now be close to doubtful for the first game in 10 days’ time. Great to see players fillin...

Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Thread.

Whilst you can’t disagree in principle with IE, you do have to sometimes allow for the exceptional. Ivan Klasnic was hardly a workhorse but I’d have him in my side any time for his goal scoring. Jimmy Greaves, Georgie Best and many others weren’t revered for their work rates but you couldn’t argue ...

Not sure where IE mentions being "elaborate". “It is no good us working flat out on our set plays and then MK Dons know every single routine and everything we’ve got throughout the pre-season. We are keeping a few cards up our sleeve and they’ll start to come out the next couple of weeks.” I get yo...
