  1. Ref Watch ...... Rochdale A

    Tomorrow's referee will be Craig Pawson from Sheffield in his fifth season as a League referee.

    Which squad is better, the current one or the one from 2009/10?

    The thread "Do you now feel affinity with the team" made me look back at the squad that got us relegated in 2009/10, assuming that the OS of each club is accurate. They weren't getting paid by us, which would account for a lot, but have the individual players gone on to do well? Franck Moussa...
  4. Tilson's new Lincoln

    I saw Lincoln play at Ilkeston yesterday - comfortable 4-0 winners - Laurent not included as he had taken a knock in training but Nicolau played the first half. I was really impressed by the way Tilly's new team played as a unit and it was amazing that they showed such understanding after no...

    Ex-Shrimpers Challenge - Letter L

    Francis Laurent

    Has been released after a not so impressive spell. Would he be worth a go again? http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/football/13334606.stm

    Memory Lane A nod to last year's unfortunately relegated superstars...

    They were too good to go down and merely relegated because the nasty chairman wouldn't pay them, so with the season go, let's look at each player and how they've done since obviously going off to better things as they were so good... 1. Steve Mildenhall - Millwall, appearances 0, enjoying...
  8. Ref Watch ... Stockport

    Assuming Stockport have remembered to tell him the new kick-off time, Saturdays referee will be Craig Pawson from Sheffield in his third season as a League referee. As part of the Development Group of young officials who they hope have a decent future in the game, he has had a load of...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend vs (load of old) Cobblers

    The Blues team? How are the injured players doing? Will Laurent get a game for Northampton? Most importantly though who many will we spank then Cobblers by? You may have guessed I don't like them. Used to go to Uni there at a time they were a division above us and the locals never let me...
  10. Feancis Laurent

    Francis Laurent has signed for Northampton. Reckon he would have done a good job for us this year.
  11. Francis Laurent

    Northampton fans seem to think he's the right winger mentioned at the bottom of this article and that he'll be joining them very shortly - http://www.northamptonchron.co.uk/sport/football/cobblers/northampton_town_new_striking_target_for_cobblers_after_akinde_deal_falls_through_1_2297205
  12. Francis Laurent

    Evening Shrimpers. We had a friendly today. A trialist striker played and it is thought that it is Francis Laurent. Based on last year was he any good? Show any good signs etc? All the best Bluebird

    Players let go over the summer

    A rare Saturday without a game gives me a chance to catch up with the players who were released in the summer. Championship Moussa, Mildenhall and Barrett are all on the bench. League One Francis and McCormack are both playing for Charlton who are losing 3-0. They are the only two players...

    Barrett's Banter: Bring on the cup IT’S the return of the FA Cup for us this weekend and I personally cannot wait to play. I’m an old traditionalist where this competition is concerned and I really do think it’s still something special. When I was a kid we all grew up dreaming of playing in...

    Spinner playing poker

    Heard something about it, had to stick it on to see it for myself. He isn't doing too badly, although the game seems to flying by a bit for him. Loads of other footballers there, or should I say ex-footballers, such as Tony Cascarino and Laurent Charvet et al.
