    Pre-Match Thread Team for Accrington, Lancashire

    It seems the goalie and back four pick themselves - and I know of no new injury worries there. I suspect Barry will be back to partner Britt up front ............ leaving the midfield selection. Hurst, Laird and Spillane plus one other. Leonard or Reeves ......... or coming up on the outside...

  4. Straker tribunal

    I've just read on the OS that tomorrow there will be a tribunal to settle the fee as Southend and Aldershot could not agree on a figure. Can we afford to pay anything ? What happens if we don't agree ? Can we give him back........................:winking:

    Team v Morecambe

    Setting off for Morecambe soon (ish) ............. and am expecting to see the same starting XI as per Rotherham except that Spicer will be in the middle and leaving Straker back on the bench. Start with a 4-4-2 and put Tomlin back as a 4-5-1 if required. Weather set to be just right for...
  6. Reasons to be cheerful...

    ...one, two, three. !) The team is playing a much more entertaining style of football this season. 2) No sign of the Tax/axe man. 3) the embargo has been lifted. Amid the gloom and doom that so often swirls around RH, at least in the mind of the supporters, there are many things to be glad...

    The Ryan Hall Saga - Part 658,765..

    With the loan window opening later next week and Hall probably going out on loan to Blackpool (Perm in Jan) how will we cope?... Are the current available players able to fill his boots? Are the likes of Hurst, Tomlin, Leonard and Straker capable of producing the goods? Will Dave Martin be...

    Random musings on our signings so far

    It's a small sample size but all three signings are League Two players. No fringe players dropping down from higher leagues in search of regular football. No non-league stars looking to better themselves. No past-it pros hanging on for one last pay day. All sideways moves from players in their...

    So we are definitely in for him, but Cheltenham are also interested apparently. Rejected a new contract offer at Aldershot. Mixed views about him on their forum, was excellent for them in his first season (5 years ago), but been very inconsistent since...
