  1. With the present style of play we need more movement off the ball and players making themselves more available to receive a pass from the player in possession and not hiding. Also more pressure on the opposition when they are in possession by moving further up the pitch.
  2. I think PW mentioned at the supporters meeting a couple of players had signed simply on the basis it would put them in the shop window for them to sign for a League club. I don't think loyalty will come into it if a league club comes for them. They could even have a release clause? At least while they are with us they will be giving 100% to achieve their ambition and not just treading water. Apparently this is the type of player PW likes to sign.
  3. Mbi got away with it for long enough. There seem to be double standards for 'businesses' and council tax payers which to me is unacceptable.
  4. Quite so. I should have said a Plan B that actually works!
  5. What worries me is that PW seems to have a way of playing which he likes the players to stick to which is all well and good that the players know what they should be doing but do we have a Plan B? Teams now know to man mark Cameron King who is only going to fast 60 minutes and double up on Allen to negate him. Meanwhile we seem to let the best players of other teams have the freedom of the park wreaking havoc with no measures to counteract them.
  6. No one asked. Apparently they like the look of Southwell in training so maybe hoping he will come good.
  7. At least we can thank JF for this season's cheap season tickets. A lot of people simply wouldn't have bought a season ticket this season after the 'dross' of last season.
  8. The only worry about Cameron King is his inability to last 90 minutes. I don't think any other team will be looking to sign him whilst that is the case.
  9. Yes, quite so. We are at a relatively higher level now so it will cost more if you want to progress but unfortunately it means taking bigger risks which the club / director are averse to so the chances of moving upward are reduced accordingly. I just think DB might regret not giving it one last real go when he looks back on his time at the helm.
  10. Bosomworth showed ambition in providing funds to purchase Vardy but hasn't shown the same since. I thought Rodney looked the part with potential to play at a higher level but could have been a flash in the pan. It would be good to see a last throw of the dice from DB before the money from transfers runs out and he leaves but it's a gamble I don't think he will take. Without a quality striker signing it's mid-table for me.
  11. Try asking Calrec. Might sponsor or do a cheap deal?
  12. Is it possible to buy a ticket for cash at the Shay? If so when and where? The advert on the website says the club office doesn't sell them.
  13. Amazing how businesses are allowed to not pay CMBC. Free advertising for Mbi for a couple of years. No wonder the pitch is in a poor state with no money to spend on it. The actual agreement is 44 pages long so not uploaded it. Freedom of Information Act 2000.docx
  14. To be fair he kept us in the National League but what we had to endure could not be classed as entertainment in any shape or form other than the start and end of the season. Even at the start we rode our luck and relied on set pieces. The only away match I went to was at Leyton Orient which was a great team performance but sadly they were few and far between. What we don't know is how much responsibility for last season was down to the board not backing him until we needed to bring in loan players to ensure our survival. It would appear that at the start of this season either our budget isn't big enough to pay for quality players or the board decided not to back him. Time will tell when a new manager is appointed and if he has the same issues in signing players.
  15. I agree with you there but we aren't a top team so the manager needs to have the communication skills to be able to keep the fans onside when the going gets tough.
