Meanwhile at Romford

Post by Dagger Steve » Tue Jan 07, 2020 9:15 pm

After their latest signing, now have a squad of 37 since Tamplin bought them (as well as sacking 15 players and manager)

Now calling them the Romford Wizards

Hired a "celebrity" midget to be their mascot


Glad he's learnt some lessons and taking it seriously this time.

Pretty sure they lost their last game before Christmas 6-0??

Just released Adam Cunnington and Ryan Cresswell... surely two players good enough for that level??

He expected huge crowds to jump on the bandwagon like Billericay but he forgot its Romford playing in Brentwood where no one cares. Billericay are down to attendances of 500 now they don’t win every week, where have all the 1000 glory hunters gone?

If he sees it through and gets the new ground over Chadwell Heath it could become very interesting.

There are 3 outcomes

1. He gets bored before any of the ground building even starts. Leaves them in the shit but hopefully still a going concern.

2. He gets bored whilst the ground building is in full swing. Goes major tits up, doesn't fulfil contracts and doesn't pay debtors. Club goes under sharpish.

3. He sticks around for the long run, Romford get a new ground. He appoints an actual football manager, scout, coach etc. He eventually gets bored but leaving them in the best state they have been for 50 years.


Spoilers - it wont be 3.

They'll get relegated this season into the Essex Senior League and that will be the end of it.
