  1. Plenty of the ball 2nd half but we literally did bugger all with it. The worrying thing is, Salford would have 3 or 4 passes of it and look more dangerous than 10 to 15 passes for us. We are in serious trouble with this squad!
  2. It's Buckinghamshire I'd call that South. If you draw a line through the middle of England it would be below it😉
  3. True, they have a very good budget for league two normally. Seem to struggle in league one however. Not saying he's a bad manager far from it but I can't see him managing up north so to speak.
  4. Southern based I'd imagine looking at his previous clubs? He's a west country bloke couldn't see him moving this far north. Not really pulled up any trees since Exeter either at MK and Bristol
  5. I feel sorry for anyone losing their job but it's been coming, if true. 1 win in 13 isn't just bad it's into embarrassing and atrocious levels. Something simply had to give. Grayson would be someone I'd look to for managers out of a job. Experience is needed in this situation IMHO.
  6. If that's the case what I don't get is why doesn't Askey say something if he doesn't like it? He was there before Sinclair. Although I can probably guess if he walked away(especially now) there is no way he'll get another league job and no pay off(if he resigned). Poor form from the owners to allow it to happen though, but Carol clearly thinks the sun shines out of Sinclair's arse too from reading her twitter posts but yet if they like Askey as a person too I just don't get it?
  7. I've been reading some posts on social media re the Sinclair situation/involvement and one poster seemed to allude on the match thread(on here) yesterday that Askey had signed two players he didn't really want. I can probably guess who. Why has Askey allowed this to happen/continue? Did he want Sinclair involved? Why did he agree to signing the players? Whether he takes his assistants advice or not surely he sinks or swims based on the decisions? If its having a negative impact, nip it in the bud. All stinks of poor management to me suggesting we perhaps need to clear the decks from the
  8. As bad as anything I've seen that first half was. Sinnott, Glover, Brown all paid the price for this sort of dross in the 4th tier. Getting indefensible now for Askey.🥺
  9. Decent(ish) performance for a first competitive game as Biddulph says above both sides gave the ball away a lot and as a result although we tried to put some good passing moves together we lacked that final pass a lot of the time. But we still created a few openings. Cullen seems a little ineffective away from home, although it's perhaps the system we play with the 1 forward and 2 wingers he gets isolated at times but Rodney and Worrall both played well and supported him as best they could. 2 good crosses I think from Worrall led to both goals, and he was his usual industrious self along wit
  10. I'd back signing someone like McLean if we could get him loaned out to National League for 6 months(at least). Big jump from Newcastle Town's level to League Two, yes the talent may be there but some experience a bit higher up would be useful to see if he can cut it against better players/defenders.
  11. If we can utilise the Hamil we should be allowed 5500-6000 surely. Lets be honest the fans in the Bycars look socially distanced a lot of the time anyway I'd say normally the vast majority of our regular 4-4.5k frequent Lorne Street and the Railway(stand and paddock) obviously because the view is better
  12. I must have dreamt the Morecambe home game then, could swear both Pope's goals were from open play that day?
