Re: The Boss Better Watch His Back: Things Not Good At Barnet

How fickle football fans are. You don't build a new team overnight and even Salford are already enduring a tough start despite their mountains of cash. John is a great manager at this level and if he doesn't get them up this season then he'll likely do it next season. They are missing 2 or 3 big pla...

Re: What did I miss ?

I've been impressed with Gordon. Yesterday probably his best game so far. He is difficult to get past and he looks good on the ball even though his passing can then be a bit dodgy. Only thing I'd say is that we've conceded a couple of goals from his flank when he's been left up the pitch - his attac...

Re: Can't do a season of this !!

Very harsh imo. Probably centimetres away from the ball too. Looked worse as the man turned a bit but that's never a red card. One foot and on the ground.

Re: Can't do a season of this !!

I think they'll be top half. Their defence is very good for this level and they have Balanta plus other decent midfielders. Lack a striker as do we.

Good at the back and nothing much going forward. Hope we sign a forward.

Re: What is our Strongest XI?

Have we been going 433 in pre season? From looking at our squad a midfield 3 of Robinson Donovan Phipps looks most sensible.

I'd be surprised if we aren't expected to pick the two loanee defenders, but not sure where that would leave Pennell. 352?

Re: Cheek gone??

I thought he was very ponderous. Had the ability to bulldoze defenders but didn't do it enough. Not enough bang for buck.

Re: Ben Nunn

I'm not sure why we have 2 established right backs but I think he's a good appointment.

Re: What is our Strongest XI?

If we go with effectively 4 forwards we'll be in trouble. Taylor sides are normally fairly defensive.

Re: Squad as it stands

Has Davey played yet? Think we are very thin at cb. I'm also not sure we can afford Hoyte and Nunn, wouldn't be surprised if Nunn left once he's fit.

Re: Morgan Ferrier

I'm sure a few days ago the chairman said he was definitely staying for the season!

I guess our angle is the sell on of any sell on. If we had 20% and Boreham also negotiate 20% then if he gets sold again for 2m we suddenly get another 80k.

Re: Squad as it stands

Not sure why he'd need to trial unless it was due to checking his injury out. JS has managed him for years!

Fairly sure it wasn't him anyway.

It still has last season last time I checked.

I've got an ics I created on my work machine which I can share on Monday.

Re: Fixtures out

Wouldn't be surprised if the police wanted it midweek. I've been there a few times and there's been trouble more often than not.

Re: New Signings Thread

I dunno whether clubs will fancy Cheek much or not really. He's got a great goalscoring record and goalscorers command a premium but is he better than the conference? As a lone striker I felt he didn't have a very rounded game and most clubs play 1 up these days. Conference clubs generally don't pay...

Re: Jake Howells

Guess that's him turning out in Ryman 1 North in a year then.
