It may also be argued that Jakubiak and Roofe could go in there too, and I guess we'll never know what positi...

Re: Where are they now?

Joe Riley & Junior Brown both sent off for bad challenges yesterday. Max Crocombe has now played 6 games since joining Nuneaton, and is yet to concede a goal! I saw Joe Riley's two-footed tackle on the FLS and it seemed particulary vicious. The recipient of the tackle was Tom Newey. It did make me ...

Re: Where are they now?

For those of you that are interested in ex-players there is a wiki type site that does a similar thing.

Not that good though

Re: PLAYERS WE NEED TO GET RID O F AND QUICK

In fairness to STEVE F , I agree about Whing. He's had his day and is regrettably no longer up to the job. He is far too immobile for MApp's style and he gets booked too easily. Very committed player, but his distribution is also poor. Danny Rose is a borderline case and has been out of form for a ...

Re: Youth Alumni Stats

In an attempt to avoid dissecting and analysing another depressing 'performance', I have instead channelled my efforts into my own pet distraction – our youth system past and present: So thus follows a few stats, featuring all those players who have featured in our youth system for at least two yea...

Re: Grimsby away

Appleton says “ it’ll be a good opportunity for some of the players on the fringes to get an opportunity, as well as making sure we have a strong enough side to get into the next round.” For crying out loud, put out your strongest team (if you know what it is). Unless he's suggesting some of the lo...

Re: Kick It Out

Because the second one implies uselessness as a result of ethnicity and is ergo racist. The first one is insulting but not racist. Are you suggesting all insults should be made illegal, or are you suggesting racism should not be illegal? Either way, have a rethink. I am not suggesting either. What ...

Re: Kick It Out

So, if I say "Akinfenwa is a fat useless striker" that is OK. But if I say "Akinfenwa is a black useless striker" that is offensive? Both are insults. I don't understand why one is illegal and the other not. Because the second one implies uselessness as a result of ethnicity and is ergo racist. The...

Re: Injury Crisis

Did Clarke know about this injury before he signed his 3 year contract. It appears to me he is now guaranteed 3 years income even if he never lifts a glove again for oxford.

Or am I being too cynical.

Re: Playoffs

The question appears to be getting blurred - are we talking play-offs or Wembley?

Walsall (from memory) have appeared in one, and only one play-off, but that was played at the Millenium stadium.
