Re: Taylor in Taylor Out

With the greatest respect to Terry Harris who has been a great club servant, for me, he could be the problem. Im a great believer in continuity and would have prefered a much younger assistant manager/coach who could learn from Peter Taylor and hopefully take over when PT decides to call it a day. W...

Re: Gutless performance

I remember the days before substitutes when if we were losing we would throw a defender forward in the hope of getting a result. Given the quality of our substitutes today I would have pushed Ben Goodlife forward to see what effect he would have. He certainly couldn't have done a worse job. Taking M...

Re: Ebbsfleet

I would love to see Corey come back, but wonder if he is too similar to Balanta in the way he plays. IMO though, the two of them playing alongside Wilko would terrify every other defence in the league and take us to another level.

Re: A long way to go...

Next season let them stand behind the goal with no cover and hope it chucks down.

Re: Great Positivity, But Proves Fans Fickleness

With regard to Steve Thompson, my big worry is he could be head-hunted by a bigger club who have seen what a great job he has done in not only saving our club but finding the right people to take us to the next level. What I like most about him is although he is a supporter of his coolness under pre...

Re: New players

If its a large amount and word gets around it could increase the transfer fee for new players so probably best if no-one knows.

Re: NOTES FROM THE FANS FORUM 11 JANUARY 2019

Probably won't get much sleep tonight because Im still buzzing. How lucky we are to have such brilliant owners.

Out of curiosity does anyone know if our owners read this forum and if not can a direct line to them be set up so if any of us come up with money-saving or making ideas they will see them?

Lost long distant glasses

I thought I may have left my glasses in the bar before the match so went in a half time. I asked the girl behind the bar if anyone had handed them in and she gave me a pair that was identical so I took them. When I got back to my car after dropping my grandson off I found my glasses in the car. If a...

Re: Still Out??

I really can't believe Friendly Bee thinks Cousins has been a disaster, as he was probably our best player last season. I also thought Danny Sparkes looked a good player and would probably be good enough to get into our current team. Craig Robson was good for us but lacked pace and is no-where near ...

Re: Still Out??

TBH I was more than a little pissed off with the way he left, but the reality is we now have a better manager than Still who gets teams playing a more enjoyable style of football. A Brucie bonus is he took some of our so-called better players with him to Barnet, and Taylor has replaced them with far...

Re: FCUK A DUCK

The form book and recent scorelines show the best team in the league beat a couple of inferior teams who can't cope with our desire and work rate. Instead of keep talking about luck perhaps we should start getting used to the fact we now have a very special team that can take us back into the EFL th...

Re: Orient away

If anyone thinking of going by train the Romford to Liverpool Street is not working on new years day. I will probably drive to Hainault where it's easy to park and get on the central line there.
