  1. Credit to them. They are a few years in advance of us and maybe they can handle the money situation and the signing of players very well indeed. Maybe i was right with my assumption. They dont waste money but offered a little more than us.
  2. Thats a failure by the dream team acknowledged by Jacko51. Happy with that
  3. Was another play on words i think to get his point over
  4. Thats what lots of people are saying. There was a plan for league 1 but we seem to have lost our way with it. These league 1 players are no more expensive now than when the plan was drawn up surely. I agrèe we dont pay silly money that we dont have but we also have to be realistic and have cash available for new players needed to help us stay in league 1. Hope the cash is available. If not DC certainly has a job on his hqnds this season
  5. Top quote. Pressed you into mistakes. Some of our best performances came with the same attitude. You have to give it all as a team to deserve to compete in any league. This is one thing i am sure DC will put right
  6. See there is more to a deal and negotiations than money. We know this is only an assumption but it does seem very probable. Exeter are an excellent club it seems and one i hope we compete with over the next few years
  7. All true. No more so than Sunderland being a top top team
  8. Hang on. Only two games in. Same applies for all teams surely. Patience will be there word too
  9. Another point. Professionals can make mistakes you know. I have faith. We have to have faith with the management team.
  10. There is no panic from me. I asked the question what if thats all. To me that is a massive what if and i hope it doesnt come to that. Using Flitcroft analogy of the guy asking for 6k per week with no one interested. Then drops to 5k and then 4k before our price range of 3k and we are then interested. What if others become interested at 4k. We will miss out. Jacko comments about the Exeter signing of the keeper and how his price was silly money for us to pay and Exeter must have money to burn. Everthought that Exeter negotiated the deal and didnt pay silly money but maybe a little more than us. We will woin some and lose some. On and off the pitch. One thing for sure we need strikers before the window closes for sure. Other positions too.
  11. What do we do end August if our top pics do not sign...
  12. £4 saving is great. The way i read this is that this is now the ONLY way to obtain a saving by purchasing before match day. You have to have this membership.
  13. I do agree ROBF I just think sometimes its OK to not speculate on something but to just admit not actually knowing. It is a fans forum after all. Ifs and buts, speculations assumptions we all have them and we all sometimes disagree with others but thats why OVF is great to be on. 😉
  14. We can assume all we like but unless we know all the above is true and Errea are at fault we may aswell say we dont know and not comment !
  15. Super Rory! Hope his problem was his right knee. He should be fine now its been cut off 😅😅
  16. Totally agree about Taylor. Great when all is good and we are attacking. Disappears when the going gets tough All the players we have lost so far, i can honestly say that they were all justified in being released or let go. We now have to replace them with better players for league 1 and ideally 4 plus ready to start in the first 11 First choice keeper, Stone not a consistant number 1 for me Centre back to push Smith and take over in the center if needed. Worrall to be pushed all the way and again replaced if needed. Really hope that Garrity has the goals in him again Need strength in depth to push Wilson and Proctor this season, injuries will come. The above players will do well for us or become squad players which in turn makes us a far stronger team for this coming season and replaces the players who have gone. Its all down to our new signings we are waiting for.
  17. Agree entirely. Have said many times that our midfield looked a far better set when we had Cass and Jones pushing from the back and ensuring our midfield three / five pushed up. Without this drive our midfield did not look to create enough for the forwards.
  18. Its fairly safe to say, or assume, that Gibbons, being a home grown player and receiving his last deal a couple of years ago, when still fairly young, was not on a wage anywhere near what Cass would have been offered. Bit unfair but true. Gibbons pay day was due now but unfortunately for him his last two years has seen him suffer with injuries. Maybe too big a gamble to offer a great wage and a two / three year contract. If Vale only offered a one year say then maybe they were right to do so.
  19. Happy with all dealings so far. Just need their replacements to come in. Better replacements. Maybe this is what we needed confirming before we sign players
  20. Agree. Lets try it first game of season. Its Fleetwood not Sheff Wed
  21. Isnt this a kit launch weekend from the club shop only
  22. We should reduce the price now of this years home kit. They will be 10 pound in a few months. Get the on sale 20 pound
