    Feeling good

    It's almost as if we are on a never ending feel good trip at the moment. From the 23rd May 2015 onwards stuff has been happening which in the past we could only dream of. I thought the Wembley win would be the pinnacle and we would have a so-so pre-season with the usual grumbling about lack of...

    Brown's 442 "Epiphany"

    So one or two are now claiming that we've suddenly experienced an upturn in form due to the stubborn Brown "finally" getting, worse still, listening to what they've been clamouring for behind the keyboard for months. Obviously, we all know that player form, those pesky opposition teams, small...

    Kick it out diversity thingy

    Latest thing coming via the clubs website is this kick it out thing, now I am all for not having racism etc.... BUT why when articals below are shoved down our throat for me this is just more PC diversity rubbish that creates more barriers then it solves We are a tolerant country one of the...

    Labour and Zero hour contracts

    Oh Dear.... http://alternative-news-network.net/balls-told-constituents-he-would-fight-zero-hours-contracts-then-employed-four-zero-hours-himself-staff-last-year/ This party gets more out of touch by the minute.

    Straker, Payne

    Does it strike anyone else strange that we're offering contracts to players without knowing which league we're playing in? Especially when it's 2 players who aren't totally comfortable at this level, never mind a league higher.
  12. Expiring Contracts

    After the news that Hurst has signed a new deal. Here are the players whose contracts are expiring: Paul Smith Mark Phillips Ryan Auger Julian Bennett Anthony Straker Ryan Leonard Marc Laird Jack Payne Bedsente Gomis Freddy Eastwood Seedy Njie Lee Barnard We have options to extend some of...

    If you had a wage budget of £25k per week

    How would you split it between GKs, defence, midfield and attack? How much would you leave spare in case of injuries, to strengthen the squad, to be able to renegotiate contracts mid-season? How many players would you have in each position? How much would you spend on your stars? I think I'd...

    Lee Barnard and Freddy Eastwood

    Simple question. Do you give them contracts for next season? Eastwood is struggling to score (Although it could be said that he doesn't get much of a run out often - regardless - not great totals this season despite his injury) and Barnard is yet to score since coming back. In my opinion I...

  16. Football transfer to change?

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/25418135 Legal challenge has been made to end transfer fees. This means that contracts will literally be worthless and in theory and player can say "I'm off now", pay up his contract (or have his future club do that) and leave. I'm failing to see the point...
  17. Contracts running out

    Phil Brown said in the summer that contract negotiations for players should have started "half way through the season", so with a fair few contracts up at the end of this season hopefully we can get them sorted soon. Who would you keep and who would you let go. Contracts running out in 2014...

    Did we miss a trick in not offering contracts to this pair as they seem to be scoring for fun at their clubs?

    Advice Please

    I view a house. I like it. The landlord is lovely. Another couple view the house. They like it. The rent is organised through a management agency/company. Both couples go to the office to sign the contracts. The landlord decides who gets the contract. Landlord chooses me. Great. Rent for 1...

    Joe Yoffe set to challenge FIFA's transfer window.

    Surprised this hasn't been mentioned yet. Seems ex-Southend trialist Joe Yoffe is set to take FIFA to court and challenge the transfer window. He currently ply's his trade in Iceland, where due to the adverse weather they endure, the season (and subsequently many player contracts) ends outside...
