  1. 9 August - deadline for windfall?

    Maybe but maybe some of the "ambitious" smaller clubs might go for him.
  2. 3,000 season tickets

    I look at average crowds as well as season tickets sold as well as area of the team. Orient may need 3,000 season tickets sold given they are competing against a lot of wealthy southern sides who pay what 5-10 years ago would have been League division  2 salaries for the same players that other teams in the south are chasing. And a lot of southern players don't sign for the northern clubs ( and vice versa) given that the difference in salaries paid may be soaked up by the increased costs of travelling etc. It's not what Orient are doing that bothers me as much as what Salford, Wrexham etc ( the higher drawing northern teams ) are doing.
  3. England v Sweden

    I think the Russians will have mixed feelings about backing either team given historical, language and political considerations. I suspect they will be hoping that both sides get a man sent off and rack up the injuries.

    Every week that passes increases my concern but those concerns can change overnight with an astute signing or 3 ( fingers crossed).

    Hopefully Mr Heath can succeed and we at least remain in the Division and then we'll have a spicy little game which both sides will circle in the diary.
  6. continuation of word association

  7. My world cup quote from King Charles V, many centuries ago: "I speak Spanish to God, Italian to women, French to men, and German to my horse.

    Alfreton look a good chance. Loads of new signings, who importantly have played with each other and the manager team before and who are all experienced at North level. Instead of introducing the players to each other or new training regimes and methods, the players come in knowing what is expected and, with the limited time their manager has with the players in between games, best use can now be of that time. I wish them luck, except if we play them in one of the various cups, when I hope they get slaughtered.
  9. New Signings

    We will see how things are going with new players, I hope.....
  10. Signings so far?.

    Because the bookies look at all sides including Town. I'm still on the fence about the direction we are taking until new signings are made.
