  1. Question Embargoes and registrations

    I haven't a clue what is going on at our club. Does anyone actually know for a fact or fully understand the position we're in with signings? It's stated as fact on here (a fact I'm definitely not disputing, btw) that we're under various embargoes and yet we're signing players and the manager is...
  2. A Field in England

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/film/filmreviews/10157059/A-Field-in-England-review.html Thought I'd share this: Ben Wheatley's new film available on multi-formats tomorrow, including free on Film4. Excited by this as Down Terrace & Kill List are superb. Won't be for Granny!

  6. A bit of Cheer!

    Reading through these posts, i'm not a regular poster granted but I in my opinion last nights result had been very over dramatised. I myself know how important it was to not lose supposedly any of the last three games and yes is totally unacceptable, especially the 3-1 to AFC. Reading some of...

    Remind me again, why do we hate them?

    From Orient board- Thought they were in general a pretty nasty bunch. I've not really noticed it so much before but theres no doubt the 'rivalry' between the 2 clubs has grown over the years. Chanting "we hate Orient" over and again sums it up really....how can anyone 'hate' Orient? Whats to...
  10. Payday and doorstep lenders

    Just seen Jo Swinson MP act as the coalition apologist for payday lenders. A truly sorry episode. Anyone considering taking a payday loan (eg wonga, quickquid etc) or doorstop loan (eg provident, pinewood, greenwood etc) should think extremely carefully before doing so. If you are in the sort...

    Question Granty, ambition and finance

    I see Grantie is settling in well at Stevenage and doing well for them; best wishes to him. I also note that they are 3rd in the table and have gates of the 3,000 only. How can they afford Grantie and how does he feel playing for a smaller team in front of such poor crowds? Borough can survive...

    So, Sky have taken over doing the highlights on their web site. Here's a link. Sky According to them Assombalonga scored his first of the season. I could have sworn I saw him score at Northampton last weekend, but obviously I was wrong. Also Grant Baisley missed with a header. I could have...

I wonder what else will be there that will interest visitors, because if it doesnt serve the...

    Latest Rumours Luke Summerfield?

    I read that Luke Summerfield is stalling on a new contract at Cheltenham http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/football/18534554 Just wondered if we'd be in for him as a Grant replacement? Must know Sturrock well from his time at Plymouth and his Dad, Kevin Summerfield, was Sturrock's assistant at...

    Longest serving player?

    With Grant gone, our 'longest serving player' stat is going to be quite unique in its lowness isnt it? Who is it anyways? I'm guessing Clohessey with around 90 appearances?
