  1. As a furloughed member of staff at my place there are strict rules about not doing any work at all. Not even accessing work emails. How would that work for a professional sportsman? If they do fitness work in their furlough time are they breaking the rules and making themselves ineligible?

    So some Stockport fan posts claiming they’re signing Rodney and our fans just take it at face value without question? Worse than that, they spend the day filling all social media with rumour and scaremongering so as the day wears on the rumour becomes ‘fact’, so much so that people start bothering the player on a day off. You’ve got to despair sometimes.
  3. Let’s just be clear, however much of a pointless minority sport rugby league is, if the pitch isn’t playable for football on Saturday but is playable for rugby on Sunday then the rugby will go ahead. The referee will make the call in each case - given rugby is mostly played by those who were too thick, uncoordinated or fat to play football at school then it’s a sport that can be played in most conditions and on most surfaces. If a football club called a game off when the pitch was deemed playable they’d be charged with failing to fulfil a fixture. As long as the eggy flops are sharing with us it’ll always be the same problem.

    Rodney & King c

    Don't disagree with the sentiment, would be good to have the big players in the current side signed up for another couple of years, but that might be put on the back burner while we're in the playoffs. This league is generally won by a side who are big, strong and hardworking. 3 or 4 players of genuine quality backed up by 7 or 8 solid grafters who are generally 6 foot plus, League 2 would require a little more than that if we'd hope to not just be scrapping for our lives all season. If we were to sneak up in the playoffs we'd have a whole new group of players who would be available to us, not to mention a much improved budget. I'd be surprised if player recruitment, commercial deals and season tickets etc aren't going to be a bit up in the air due to our unexpectedly good league position.

    Dover Game

    Think the guy missed a game not long before Christmas after losing at least one family member as well. Wasn’t on top form but he can be forgiven that at the moment. Still scored a fantastic header and created the first goal with a brilliant ball out to King, so not a game without it’s high points either.
  6. It'd be confusing if they mentioned us when they pulled someone else out of the bag.

  17. Against Wrexham Wild changed the system when they went down to 10 men, moving Nolan further forward and we got caught out. Today he let the game settle and left our system unchanged, but we still conceded. He is still learning and clearly learnt from the Wrexham game, sadly football isn't as straightforward as some like to make out.
  18. Result poor, performance was far worse than that though. Clarke looks average at best without the physical presence of Brown next to him. Staunton just not up to the positioning and strength needed at centre back. In attack we were slow and laboured, against 10 men the tactic appeared to be long diagonal balls that their full backs headed every time. Silva never looked like he could trouble their defence. Can see the logic in King going off, we were already being outmuscled in the middle of the pitch, losing a man there and keeping King on would only have made it worse. Sadly Nolan seemed to disappear once he was part of a midfield 2 anyway so we might as well have kept King on. Against Yeovil we were beaten by a very good side, today we’ve lost against a decent team who went to 10 men and we never looked likely to score. Wild has a big week ahead of him.

    Luke Bullement

    Was clearly only here because JF was doing a favour for his mate Dougie Freedman. At least he never wasted the precious budget.
  20. What do you have to do to be the worst 4th official? Their only role seems to be displaying numbers on an electronic board and being moaned at. Both things this chap did perfectly well.
  21. Heath did the job he was hired to do, but sadly wasn’t up to the task in the National. Fullarton in fairness got an under performing team to play to its level when he first came in. He then presided over two of the most shambolic pre season recruitments we’ve had. The bloke had no ability to actually put a squad together - sure he found the odd good signing but in his first summer we wasted wages on about 6 crap wingers and failed to actually get a midfield or forward line, in his second he gave up on signing players altogether.
  22. Yes a fair amount of the squad were signed by JF, but let's not suggest ed be anywhere near where we are if he was in charge. What Wild has realised is its all well and good being sold in defence, but unless you have pace, talent and mobility up front you won't get anywhere. The only thing that saved Fullarton from relegation was Rodney last season. Wild has a front 4 who work hard and work as a unit, the link play is at times sublime. So no, I won't credit Fullarton with this success, I blame his inability to get the most out of players and his negative tactics & personality for setting us back a good 12 to 18 months.
