only 6 points off a play off place - and our next 3 games are against teams at the bottom of the league -- WHAT COULD GO WRONG ?

Re: Crellin vs Rachubka

We have a keeper who isn't fit for non league -- let alone league two ....he isn't even a Wanderer ... we are giving another teams 3rd rate goalie game time at our expense (and points total). There must be some sort of contractual obligation on us to play him.
I hope he's gone soon.

Crellin vs Rachubka

Anyone remember Paul Rachubka - played for us a few years ago - back in 2015.
7 appearances - and let in a shed full of goals
Worst goalie ever... UNTIL NOW


check out this video -- For my money -- Crellin is worse than this....

Re: Pragmatism vs Perseverance

I think we have only 6 or 7 good players at this level Once January comes we have the chance to get rid of some of the dead wood, sign a new goalie, and move on. It was a hell of an ask to employ a manager with no experience of this league, and for him to sign a new team of players and then go on to...

Re: Pragmatism vs Perseverance

I'd be happy to stick it out.
The man wants his team to play proper football, not simply points at any cost - we've been there and done that and it didn't end well.

"We’re making ourselves into a club that we can be proud of and that will take time." - IAN EVATT yesterday

You know I think he will - and I've always been proud of being a Wanderer - I think our darkest days are now behind us.

Re: SAVE BURY

The difference being that the Earl Of Derby and the Earl Of Derby Estate is alive and kicking -- hopefully they will recall their "gift with reservation" if someone breaks the restrictive convenants on the land.

Re: SAVE BURY

Gigg Lane was donated to Bury Football Club in 1895 by the Earl Of Derby. There are covenants on the land that state that the land can only be used for sporting purposes. I rent land from both the Earl of Wilton and Earl of Derby estates and have spoken to the land agents about Gigg Lane in the past...

Evatt Out !!! Delighted to have our "manager" sorted. Says all the right things so I live on the promise. I wondered to myself who on this forum would be the first to say "Evatt Out" after losing his first game. Nelson is joking but we should have a bet... :) I'm delighted with the appointment -- i...

Evatt is very well acquainted the highest/most prolific scorer in non league football - who has q £50k release clause in his contract. 36 goals in 32 games Tunde - at that price someone can take a punt on a non league goal machine. Pity its not going to be us - as we are not allowed to pay transfer ...

Re: New Manager Thread

Sol Campbell has a huge multi million pound property empire -- I'd hazard a guess he has more £££ than FV
We need someone who is 100% committed, brilliant and inspirational .... I don't think Sol Campbell fulfills any of this criteria
