  1. Fylde Away

    It’s almost like contracts are up for players.
  2. Disappointing

    Fullarton has earnt the right to build again for next season, a lot of mistakes have been made this time around but there have been signs in the last few months that he’s learning. One thing he can’t do next season is complain about finances and blame that if we struggle. It doesn’t wash. We have a budget that would put us in a comfortable spot if that’s how the league was worked out. He’s right though, we don’t have loads of money, so he can’t afford to waste wages and in some cases transfer fees. Odelusi,  Preston, Edwards, McLeod, have all been shocking. Southwell is on good money and hasn’t produced enough, I’d argue Berrett has been average at best on the whole as well. We paid money for Hanson then wouldn’t play him, we’ve spent good wages on players with lots of cover in certain positions and neglected others - did we really need Maher and Staunton, or both Hanson and Duckworth, or Tomlinson, Odelusi, Preston, McLeod and Kosylo for the 2 wingers spots? Hopefully he’s gained a bit of experience and knowledge about squad building for this close season.
  3. Bye Bye Kosy

    Think he was just keen to get one over Kev Roberts.

  5. Did anyone spot this earlier?

    Only if the time is a meaningless end of season game and the place is in someone else’s team. Big lad lacking pace is fine, if they can use their size and height to their advantage, or even score goals sometimes. He does neither. Even Edwards give more goal threat.
  6. Poodles in for £10

    A sizeable minority of our fans bleat on about wanting the club to grow the fan base, have initiatives that increase possible revenue streams etc, but clearly they actually mean they only want incentives to help their own bank account. I'd have more time for them if they had the balls to come out and admit that instead of hiding behind the "grow the fanbase" line. The club should be being applauded for these offers - not every offer will benefit every fan but so far this season there's been free kids season tickets, kids for a quid, reduced entry for women, reduced entry for season ticket holders at other clubs, free drinks for regulars, free food for regulars and the mini season ticket. That's what I can think of off the top of my head. Its as good as it's ever been for deals to attract people down - yet some will still pipe up and criticise. The current offer is unlikely to bring any new die hard fans in, but it might just get a few people to adopt us as a second club. If it leads to 10 or 20 people getting into the habit of looking out for our results and turning up to a game 4 or 5 times a season then suddenly you've got an additional £1-2k coming in. The only people out of their depth are the 'supporters' who's only thought is to moan and whine if they don't directly benefit. They're only a step away from moaning that kids for a quid is ageist and they should also get in for that amount.

    Best get a loanee in to cover
  8. The Sending Off

    Nailed on red card, though so at the time and video footage backs that up. More surprised that our glorious leader was stood 10 yards away with a perfect view yet felt it was wrong and that the referee was trying to influence the game. His view of that incident is as warped as his view of the game.
  9. Keep the faith or ditch the disaster?

    Not suggesting Aspin would necessarily be the answer long term, but if we did cut ties with Fullarton there's not many options to take over in the short term - internally we've Hughes who could step up but you'd think he'd go along with Fullarton. That leaves Steve Nichol or Nathan Clarke as internal options, neither of which would fill me with much confidence to pick up points in the relegation fight we're in. Aspin has experience, knows the club and is available, but having been sacked not long ago by us there's definitely baggage there. Collins is similar in that he knows the club and is available but he'd ring the same alarm bells as Fullarton and Kelly, had a month or so as a manager in the league before being sacked. If we decide to sack then given how precarious our position is still we can't just write off 3 or 4 games while we find a long term solution, so we either plan for next season and start looking now for the right man to come in over the summer, or we make a short term appointment who we think is better than we have but not really someone we expect to be building the club on.
  10. Keep the faith or ditch the disaster?

    Seen a few people suggesting Brown should take over, I think people are underestimating how old he is - the guys only 28, I can’t see him being too keen to concentrate on management at this stage of his career. If we did decide to let Fullarton go then as a short term appointment I’d be looking more to Aspin or even Collins to get us to the end of the season then reassess. The other internal candidate would be Clarke imo.
  11. Scot, Scot, where are thousest Scot.

    At least he could out jump Quigley for our aimless hoofs forward.
  12. He’s Gone!

    Knob!!
  13. Now Is The Time To Go

    Believe it or not I’ve no idea who you are. You just seem rather odd and deluded. I presume you’ll be the one at the Havant game who looks like this though?

    Ok, where’s your face?
