  1. Think it is called.We haven't got a pot to p*** in!! long, long season ahead. I,M afraid. 

    Or the budget was spent before the season. Maybe, just maybe the board have said the manager has to generate his own funds if he wants new players? At the end of the day it is his recruitment that has fallen short and needs tinkering with

  2. If we want to bring in players from other clubs we have to bring them in today, however if we are relying on free agents or loanees Aspin will wait until next week when that window reopens again.

    Wonder if we see a loanee come in from Redditch?

  3. Would be very interested to know if Aspin improved his coaching qualifications over the summer and did he go and visit other clubs higher up the pyramid to speak to other coaches and watch them in action?

  4. The old club was a shambles - but it was our shambles, something the fans were a part of.

    The new club has an outwards view of being run well, but is just as shambolic as the old one was, if not more so - minus the debt.

    The major difference with the new club is that it doesnt feel like its ours. It belongs to three directors who run it - and its to hell with the rest of us if it doesnt suit them.

    I will keep supporting and backing the club, but lets be under no allusion, its not the same as the old one. Whilst run better financially, in every other department, most importantly the one in the community, we are failing miserably.

    Don't get this old club belonging nonsense. Why did it belong to us? Because we were constantly being asked to put our hands in our pockets? What do you prefer? One financial crisis to another, but the knowledge that you are part of the club? (Something I never felt anyway) or a club that is being run prudently off the pitch, albeit with big improvements needed but you don't feel part of it?

    For me I feel no more or less part of the FC Halifax Town than I did of Halifax Town FC

  5. Listening to him other week i'm surprised he's still here.This season is

    going to scupper his otherwise impressive cv.He labours the points of lack of

    training facilities and meagre budgets.The windfalls he's brought in should have

    facilitated major improvements in these areas.He stated there is nowhere to train

    when it gets dark...FFS Trinity Academy has a full size 3g pitch with floodlights,

    won't the board stump up hiring that for say 4 hours a week....

    Better training facilities, floodlit training pitch etc would all be great, but it wouldn't alter the managers thinking that he needs to play strikers out of position and be pretty inflexible in his approach to match day. I am not advocating his exit, far from it, but at times I do think he is to regimented in his team set up. The work ethic he demands from his players is superb but that should be the bare minimum every player at this club gives as a matter of course, at times it seems to me the players are playing within themselves and need to be allowed to "release the shackles"

    So has Calderdale college where the youth team train
  7. People have short memories, every time we have played 5 at the back at home it's been a total distaser.

    I think it's a case of changing the personal rather than the formation.

    Bring in Hutchison at CB move Hamza forward.

    Please do not have Hamza in midfield

  8. Agree, Hughes definitely didn't do enough to warrant even a consideration of making the team.

    Although with McDonald potentially injured, he may get a start through a lack of alternatives.

    Mcdonald has tweeted today that they had a good session. This morning and he is ready for Tuesday's game.

  9. Got to make the most of the big Shay pitch imo.I would start with 2 wingers.MacDonald & Hughes.Back 4 of Bolton,Hutchison, Bencherif & McManus. James & Whitehouse in the middle. Bishop & Burrow up top.We might get overrun in midfield. If so we can always change it.Got to go on the offensive from the start.

    2 meters wider than Chesters pitch and 2 meters shorter
  10. Glennon

    Bolton Brown Bencherif Macc

    James

    Hughes Whitehouse Hibbs Macdonald

    Burrow

    4-1-4-1

    On second thoughts I would swap Brown for Hutchison as I fear Chester will know all his weaknesses and exploit them
