Re: Free agents

I think Shola Ameobi is retired and coaching at Newcastle.

LuaLua must be pushing 40 - how long since he last played a competitive game?

Jean-louis akpa akpro scores goals which is something we do not have in the team. A goalscorer is needed asap and most of any budget we have should be spent on imo.
7 goals in his last 70 appearances, according to Soccerbase, suggests he’s not the answer.

Re: Peter Taylor Interview

Seemed to me that the subtext was I have a bit more budget, but not much more and I started off with not much at all - wouldn’t be surprised if the Stannard question wasn’t placed to emphasise the point that Bromley can pay for a full time goalkeeping coach but we cannot still.

Re: FA Cup Draw

Quite - I’d forgotten that in qualifying rounds the clubs had to agree the price, I got mixed up with competition proper, where the home club sets prices.

Re: FA Cup Draw

I think Barnet are having to do something given the unrest by their support at the increase in terrace prices they imposed after our supporters (and a few others) complained. Their average gate since they hiked their prices has fallen to only 1040 (including away support). Borehamwood are, however, ...

Re: Taylor should leave.....

DTD: I’ll take that as an attempt to avoid revealing that you don’t know who we could have got for what we are paying for Mullings and an acknowledgement that pretty much the entire squad need replacing, not merely Mullings. So we are back to anyone managing this club would needs funds to replace mo...

Re: Taylor should leave.....

How much resource do you think is spent on Mullings? Who would you have got for the same money? Do you think that the only area this squad is deficient in is a single centre forward?

Re: Taylor should leave.....

Agree: a new manager will not improve the current players. The squad was assembled with the budget we had. Everyone accepted it was going to be tough this season with that squad. People are expecting a cortina to win F1. The question is what additional resources are going to be made available? If it...

Re: Stuart Lewis

Which comes back to the question of what are our new majority shareholders’ plans? They might think that 20th is acceptable this season and then plan to start their marketing/promotion push, but I’m afraid that they will find that they will be battling not to attract new fans, but to win back curren...

I’m not a full member. I can’t see any tangible benefit worth £100 per year, so I can’t get offended about a joke about not being a full member.
