  10. physical condition of SUFC

    I have been very impressed the fitness and strength of some League One teams - Wimbledon, shrewsbury etc. I think our players give pretty much all they have got but how much have they got ? Oxley 100% Ferdinand - 40 % Turner 60 % - Kightly 80 % John White 85% Coker 80% - 2nd match after broken...

    For the second Saturday running we play a team against whom we hold a single win lead in head to head League matches.

  12. Frustration v realistic expectation

    Hi, Yesterday was pretty bad...there’s no glossing over that. However overall our home form has been pretty solid if not spectacular. Our problem is our away form, which’s is strange as we’ve performed well away in recent seasons. People are getting wound up and are expecting more. I...

    Question Home Defeats

    I was thinking how good our home form has been in League One, in general, so I totted it up and in the league, since we got promoted, we've played 56 games and only lost 13. 8 in 2015-16 5 in 2016-17 Can you name them and the score? Clue : They are 13 different sides (no side has beaten us twice)

    Approaching the halfway point of the season

    With the half way point of the season approaching, I thought it would be good to gauge some opinion on the season so far. We currently lie in 14th spot on 25 points. Having played 19 games we have scored just 22 goals and conceding 29. People may say we have been unlucky with injuries...
