Re: January Transfer Window

He's a bit like Canice Carroll, young and promising but very gung-ho. We have two other right backs, let's use the money for a striker or two.

Not sure why people are being concerned about this minor bit of news rather than celebrating the fact that star forward Marcus Browne is staying!

Re: Oh dear god

TBH this isn’t so bad. Young footballers are meant to do stupid things (once) and I don’t think there’s a suggestion he was harassing anyone

Re: Robinson Out

You might ideally wish we had a different manager but I don’t think he’ll be sacked now it’s the transfer window - and would we want him to be? Once we’re safe it could be time to think about the best person to take us forward

Re: Robinson Out

I don't think McMahon is such a big miss. Most of our recent good results have been achieved without him - turning over Rochdale in some style, beating eighth-place Blackpool easily, and battling to draws at higher-placed Peterborough and Doncaster. We've also scored a fair few goals during that per...

Re: Robinson Out

I'm not particularly a Robinson lover, and the summer recruitment was almost as bad as the previous year's, but I do dislike wilful negativity. Why is Robinson now the worst thing ever, whereas ten days ago we thought we could have a run at the play-offs? It seems that he gets all of the blame and n...

Re: Robinson Out

Well, there were very few comments here during our good run - five home wins in a row. I wondered if the forum was closing down. I do remember Robinson saying something interesting after I think the Bradford defeat, that we weren’t good enough to win without giving our all. We’ve only got a dozen fi...

Re: Singing the Big-Crowd Blues

To be fair, it was just under 9,000, but I agree that gates are disappointing. It’s a shame as, today notwithstanding, we’re a pretty good side who have served up some exciting games recently. I guess we aren’t going anywhere- all we can hope for is mid table in Div 3, which oddly may be less of a d...

Re: You’re not singing any more

Don’t reckon this lot go to the games! (Well to be fair i don’t do the away ones). I think Robinson deserves enormous credit for turning things around. Partly it’s just players getting fit and settling into a pattern, but he spotted where the formation wasn’t t working and fixed it. I’m amazed at th...

Re: Just how desperate for a striker are we???

Would it be annoying at this point to say we should never have let Danny Hylton go? Allegedly he only wanted £x extra but we wouldn’t pay it, thinking he’d sign anyway. Heck, I’d take Wes Thomas back in a shot!

Re: Gilly golly gosh

When we give a fully committed performance like that we are so hard to beat and even with injuries have quite a few skilful match winners. If only we had a striker we’d be a pretty good team - though you could say that about a few teams in this league. Dickie did well keep their prolific guy quiet.

Re: Stadium (again) - fans forum

It's good that the council are involved, maybe? Hopefully they would be unwilling to grant any planning permission without feeling assured that ownership of a new stadium was in appropriate hands, ie not split off from the club. There are a lot of knowledgeable people on here who may have some insig...

Re: Robinson Out

Since Robinson started, one striker has scored one goal (Obika vs Coventry) - I don't think any strikers scored under him last season. Which points to the issue being at least in part the system.
