    The youths

    Interesting - and encouraging - to see Miles Mitchell-Nelson and Lewis Gard on the bench. I believe Mitchell-Nelson is a centre-half and Gard a midfielder. This is an important time of the year for the youngsters with contract decisions being made and I expect this means these two will be/have...

    RIP - Sir Teddy Taylor

    This has been mentioned on the 'Deadpool' thread, but with Sir Teddy's connections with the club, I thought it appropriate to mention it here :- http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-41350209 Many will know that Sir Teddy was a regular at home matches in the Directors Box and a huge fan of The...

    Lessons to be learnt mr. Brown

    I went to Braintree v Lincoln last night & was so impressed with a few things that the Cowleys have set up at the Imps -- simple enough things that Phil Brown + his coaching team seem to be blatantly missing out on. First of all the intensity of the warm up . The difference between between...

    International Management/Coaching XI

    Just read this article on the BBC http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/37194671 which says Graeme Jones has joined Martinez as his assistant in the Belgium national team. It got me thinking, how many other ex players have gone on to manage/coach on the international scene? Could we even make a...

    Last ten games of post-war managers

    I know it's not an exact science, but I thought I'd have a look at post-war managers and their last ten games, for comparison with our current manager. I've given a win 3 points and a draw one point for consistency's sake. Also bear in mind that some managers were sacked and some left to bigger...

    James Taylor forced to retire

    Sad news about the Notts and England batsman... http://www.trentbridge.co.uk/news/2016/april/james-taylor-forced-to-retire.html Only 26 and, under normal circumstances, a decade of top class cricket ahead of him. On the plus side, at least this condition has been identified before a tragedy...

    Available managers.

    Possible applicants for league club's manager roles? I saw Peter Taylor out running again on Sunday morning over Hadleigh - an obvious "free" manager. Then on FA Cup TV they had panel of Shearer, Ince and Gullett; 3 previous managers. I know we have a "sacked manager" thread but with most of...

    Does anyone know what Spud's up too these days? I saw him walking down Leigh Road on Thursday.
  18. Donny summary ;

    The complete performance’ is how Darren Ferguson described this win, and it’s hard to disagree.Rovers were the better side in the first half; more fluid and open than their hosts, and went in at the break with a deserved lead. Nathan Tyson’s deftly weighted pass, slotted into the roof of the net...
  19. Spotted on a Rochdale site ;

    Dale go to deepest, darkest Essex this weekend, trying to overcome one of our most miserable runs by taking on Southend United. You have to go back to 1985 to find the last time that Dale came away from Southend victorious. On a Friday night in May, Vic Halom's side had a rich run of form (by...

    The Watford years 1977-1979

    Memories of the two clashes in 77-78. Incredible rivalry, to the point that Match Of The Day gave the game at Vicarage Road top billing - it was a Division 4 (League 2) game - it was THAT big. Then the cup tie's in late 78. The draw at their place and the replay that had Liverpool at home as the...
