    Academy is pretty much touch and pass with the odd bits of running with the ball (often unchallenged) , National League is an whole different ball game and some players just can't make the transition, let's hope that Earing can  Just found that spellchecker changes Earing to Eating, should be an interesting season 
  3. Next New Signing.

    Sometimes it’s the left over ones who turn out to be the gems. Something too prove etc. AND. More importantly, they come with a lighter pay packet. 
  4. Graham Barnett

    Sad loss. Remember him for an unfortunate injury when he took the full blow of the football below the belt and had to retire injured.  Seen many injuries on the football field but not one in similar circumstances.

    This season the signing of our striker is massive. Southwell won’t be able to do it on his own as proved last time with Edwards. Get Rodney with him and we will do alright. But it’s highly unlikely we will get him but just hope we can.  Still another 7/8 signings to get announced. More than likely we will notice them In friendlies as I’m thinking we will be left with the left overs who are looking for a club. 
  6. 19/20 player rumours

    Think we were after him. 
  7. Jack Earing

    Junior football? You must be watching someone else as there are a couple of academy videos of him on there. And he looks decent so I’m hoping he is decent for us. 
  8. 19/20 player rumours

    Andy Bond signs for York. I'd have looked at him personally

    We did change our system slightly to coincide with better strikers . We sacrificed a defensive midfielder for a slightly more fluid midfield . We need to have fluidity in midfield, full backs that can get up and down the line and our 'wide' players supporting the forward/s rather than spending 85 minutes doubling up in defence . This may not happen on Fullartons watch .

    Hope his attitude is right and he grasps this opportunity, we want players that are willing to make themselves undroppable . The biggest difference he'll notice is the physical aspect if this league and his main skill will be managing his mental strength

    Doubt it. Hope I'm proven wrong though

    There are 3 videos - 1 from 2018, and 2 from 2016. All from junior football. Not sure we should base too much on them

    What I'm saying is, that's the quality of player we're after

    Strikers is the big one for us. We started to get better pretty much only because we finally got a genuine threat up front. We didn’t play any differently, and with cr*p strikers up front we’ll just end up playing the same threaten-less dirge we served up for most of last season. The rest are nice to haves tbh - up front is what will make or break our season.

    Danny didn´t join Spurs until 54

    I was basing my guess on the fact that the third round gate v Cardiff was about 25k and the 4th round v Stoke was 35k. It does not look like you could fit another 10k in. Having said that it was more crowded at the Town End against Stoke in the evening FA  cup replay (was it 69?) and the crowd then was reported as 20k !!
  19. Next New Signing.

    If it wasn't for his injury record I'm sure he'd still be a key player for us.
  20. Colorizing Old Photos using

    Just checked the old testament (Halifax Town - The Complete Record) & you are correct.
  21. Colorizing Old Photos using

    Possibly. It was from Tony Thwaites' book "From Sandhall To The Shay". The match wasn't specified.
  22. Colorizing Old Photos using

    Isn’t that Bill Nicholson ?
  23. Next New Signing.

    No. Said before pre season that we had to get better than tommo in if we wanted to do well in the league. He made a few assists and played ok, nothing special. Much prefer a fit josh on the wing.
  24. Colorizing Old Photos using

    Presumably that would be against Stoke in the 4th round in 52/53 as I understand the Tottenham game (5th round) was after snowfall.
  25. Jack Earing

    Can't choose his name unless he's rock'n'roll . Maybe suggestions as to what he could change it to ? Jay Bling ? Jackie Giles ?
  26. Next New Signing.

    You might be seeing them tomorrow. 
  27. Next New Signing.

    But receipts will be lower and bodies inside the stadium might also be fewer
