  1. We’ve dropped a bollock with Josh but in all fairness, he doesn’t fit into the formation PW likes.

    Southwell

    The Rodney deal wouldn't have been possible if Southwell was still on the wage bill.

    Southwell

    Southwell has agreed a settlement paving the way for a move away from the club.

    The formation against Stockport County will be irrelevant. They will again target our weakness by bombarding our box from set pieces.

    Well done to Williams on a solid performance, but let’s not get carried away. We were playing possibly the worst team I have seen this season in Chesterfield. The acid test is on Wednesday against a team who hit us for 5 Boxing Day.
  6. As Roy Race says, ‘Usually waiting for the rest to catch up’ - he is on point for me. We don’t have a striker who scores and we don’t have any box to box midfielders who break their necks to get into the box. We have a workmanlike team with a devoid of natural flair and ability. We will never get the best out of a player like Macdonald when we don’t have the players to compliment his strengths.
  7. Surplus to requirements. Manager obviously doesn’t see him as part of his plans.
  8. Result aside, the manager is clearly struggling and doesn’t look any nearer to turning things around. I personally think he has lost the dressing room, exactly like Fullarton did. Body language of the players is a give away.

    Pete Wild

    Being a manager of any club is a breeze when you over achieve and sit nicely at the top of the league table. You get to see how good a manager really is when he’s under pressure. That time has come for Pete Wild. As an inexperienced manager, he won’t have experienced the pressure he is feeling right now, it’s sink or swim time I think. I personally hope he succeeds, but it’s clear by his tactics, team selection and post match comments, there are inconsistencies which would strongly suggest the cracks are showing.
  10. Saturday 26th is the end of the agreed loan period.
  11. He got the mangers job just before the season started and got an immediate tune out of the players to grind out positive results. The league table suggests at this stage, he’s doing a decent job. When you take into consideration his budget, he’s doing a very good job. The season will be like a rollercoaster in terms of results, but that will be the same for every club.
  12. The league we are in is a much of a muchness in that anybody can beat anybody and the teams who grind a few results out will find themselves near the top end of the table. The reality is, we are not that great but we have been able to grind some results out thus far this season. We are well and truly punching above our station and as fans we need to realise that. I’m disappointed we didn’t make it to the first round proper today, and yes we were poor, but Harrogate have deep deep pockets and their fans can’t be happy with what they’re serving up so far! We have a good manager, lower the expectations a bit and appreciate we as a club can not financially compete with most at our level.

    Josh MacDonald

    Remember, Josh was coming back from 12 months out with a Anterior Cruciate Ligament injury. I was reliably informed he dropped to the level he did, because it guaranteed him the competitive minutes he needed, and he was under the guidance of his old manager and advisor who could gauge exactly where Josh was at in his progress. By all accounts, everything so far is looking very encouraging, and his return is near.

    Josh MacDonald

    Pretty sure it’s his road back. We don’t have a reserve side so it makes total sense to go away, get games, prove his fitness, and then be in contention when he returns.

    Soul destroying weather conditions. The positive is, we got a point we probably didn't deserve. Forget and move on rob Solihull Moors now.
