Re: January 2022 Transfer Thread

As a side-issue, say we do finish sixth-bottom, how many fans would be content with that? :oyea: I'd take that in a heartbeat. All too recently I genuinely didn't think I'd have a club to support. A couple of seasons later I will more than happily snatch your hand off for being in a reasonably robu...

Re: Take your Mac to Fleetwood. Away 07-12-21. 7-45.

There've been too many of these performances now.

We need practically everything to go in our favour to win. It speaks volumes that since August we've only beaten one club that wasn't in the relegation zone at the time we played them and the one club that wasn't was fifth bottom.

Re: Loan Watch

I can't blame Politic if he thinks his career would be better served by waiting and hoping to attract a contract offer from elsewhere. He's demonstrating he's capable of contributing with goals and assists despite relatively little playing time and I can see a club at the level he's currently playin...

Re: Take your Mac to Fleetwood. Away 07-12-21. 7-45.

Fleetwood are playing Accrington away tomorrow. Let's hope for a hard game on a heavy pitch to tire them out. They lost 5-1 to Accrington today with 10 men after 23 minutes, looks like you got your wish! I wonder what it feels like to get battered away at Accrington having had a man sent off early ...

Re: Sprats v Mackerels..V Fleetwood at home. 31-11-21. 7 O'clock

We did what we needed to do and we did it without picking up any additional injuries. That's what tonight was about and it's good enough for me.

Linked with buying Cole Stockton now, be ruing not going after him in the summer if we have to pay a fee. https://t.co/bR0EoSju3H We tried to sign him in the summer. 100%.

Re: January 2022 Transfer Thread

I've noticed the No. 28 from yesterday is out of contract in January. I'd need to see more of him but if his performance yesterday is his standard he might be worth looking at.

Is Doyle playing with an injury?
Don't think he's been the same player since The 'Rona.

I think it might have more to do with age than anything else. I do also think he's been rushed back from injury, though.

Re: More Tin Pot Than Gold Cup - Jockeying For Position vs Cheltenham At Home (3pm 27/11/21)

In the context of what had happened both before and during the match - injury crisis; only two viable substitution options, neither of which were particularly inspiring; up against in-form opposition; coming back from a goal down twice, etc. - I'd genuinely rank that as the performance of the season...

Re: More Tin Pot Than Gold Cup - Jockeying For Position vs Cheltenham At Home (3pm 27/11/21)

It's desperately disappointing to concede so late after fighting our way back into it and having the better of them for a good period. The tactical switch was nedded because Johnston looked like a centre half playing in midfield before it. We need to get a grip on their No. 28 because he's playing i...

The thing is, it's not like we were massively short in Edward's and Senior's positions. We just need anyone we can get now. At the time they left we were all positive to see them getting football. This has been a snowball of shite....a shitball. Interestingly, Senior seems to consider himself a mar...

He played for his parent club before signing on loan. Players can only play for two clubs during one season (the rule was temporarily relaxed during COVID but I presume it's now been reinstated).

We won at their place didn’t we? That marvelous last minute Ryan Delaney winner, our only goal celebrated by a fan inside the ground all season… Will be happy with a point, not distraught if we lose. Anything but another injury / suspension. We did. To the delight of the few supporters lucky enough...

Re: Exchanging Corn...V Doncaster at home, 23/11/21 8 'O clock.

I'm not advocating we become a team that habitually "bangs it in behind" but doing so a couple of times usually makes defenders drop deep, giving you more space to play. And if the lad collects the ball and whacks it in the onion bag, we'd accept that, right? Indeed. It'll be a nice alternative to ...
