    Why we will never be happy

    It's a tough life following the fortunes of a lower league side. Let us just imagine that we ended up in the National League (Conference) before rising like a Phoenix from the flames... On life in the National League This is embarrassing, we've never played at this level before Tinpot teams...

  8. Ref Watch ...... Accrington H

    The four recent home matches against Accrington have been tight affairs with a 1-0 win apiece and two draws. This is in stark contrast to our other two home matches against them, in the late 50s, just after the abolition of Divs 3 North and South, which we won by an aggregate of 10-3...

Barry Corr is the first player to score double figures in consecutive seasons since who? 4. Whilst Dan Bentley was a...

    Should we try to hold on to Barnard/Eastwood for next season?

    Barnard is only due to be on loan until the end of the season and Eastwood's two-year contract will also have expired. Neither have had as much success in their second spells, so is it worth trying to keep them on, taking into account cost as well as their value to the team?

    Question ....You Should Never Return

    Many people say that you should never return as a Manager or indeed as a Player to a club where you were previously successful as it is unlikely (but not impossible) that you'll be able to repeat your past glories. Sadly two of my favourite players in Lee Barnard and Freddy Eastwood are proving...

    First ten games

    I've had a look at some former managers and how they fared in their first ten games. I took it back to Booby Moore's spell. Not including Brown's tenure, the worst start over 4 games is actually Colin Murphy with 4 straight losses. Whelan and Thompson started with 2 losses each as well. Quite...

    A Where are they Now special

    I was tempted to do one of the last time we played at Wembley, but it would be pretty dull So, the last time we played at the Mill Stad, here's where everyone is and what they're doing: Flahavan - signed for Palace for a free in July 2008, after making 296 appearances for the club. Now at...
  20. Who Wants Our Club Dead?

    There is a concerted campaign going on to drive Ron Martin out of business and deny him the chance to build Martin's Mall at Fosset's Farm. So what? Martin has a reputation for making enemies and saying what people want to hear while doing things they'd rather he didn't. Not many people would...
