  1. Every performance is becoming the same: Smith, Legge, Bris immense head everything battle everyone and Brown relied upon when needed. MOTM Conlon obviously scored the worldie but his all round display was absolutely immense. He covered every blade of grass, tackled everything that moved, closed down every attempted pass and shot on the edge of our box and put his foot on the ball in the middle when needed to. For me 10/10 performance. I think DC has seen enough of Cullen now. Yet another injury and looked miles off the standard required. Don't think we will see him in a Vale shirt
  2. Experimental team or not the way these cheating bar stewards have manipulated furlough scheme I hope we stuff em 4 or 5 and they gone on to loose the next 5 matches and get relegated. Will forever remember this club as a bunch of cheats!

    Would love one too but I just don't they exist in L2. I can't say I have seen a pure CB for any team this year who I thought was good on the ball. Certainly no better than Legge.
  5. Not the way that game was played today no. I don't disagree the midfield is weaker without him but who cares we are safe and preparing for next season. Manny's gone move on.
  6. Generally we didn't pass the ball well today but that wasn't because Manny is not playing. Sometimes you have to play the conditions of the game and today was one of those occasions.
  7. Yes the video feed cut out several times in the 2nd half with an error code...very annoying.
  8. That pitch looked really difficult to play on today very very dry and bobbly. I can't recall the last time I saw a match where the ball was in the air as much as that. Bris and Legge absolutely outstanding today. Over the course of the past 7 games they are both making me change my mind and should be in the squad for next season.
  9. He will improve of course but just don't see how he is worthy of an over 21 aged squad place for a club in L2 which should have ambitions to reach the play offs as a minimum.
  10. I don't doubt he will. It was in response to say his crossing is currently a lot better than Monty and Amoo which is laughable.
  11. Have you seen Hurst's crosses? Awful.
  12. To say you've have exaggerated would be an understatement.

    Not feeling the Hurst deal... needs to improve a hell of a lot to be a regular 1st teamer. Feels like a gamble to me given we don't know the size of the squad allowance for next season and he will count towards the over 21's.
  14. Good luck to Manny - really nice lad and very good player on his day. Realistically he would have been very very lucky to have had a one year deal with us let alone 2 years from Chesterfield so fair play to him. I wouldn't be surprised if we see 1 or 2 more movements from our squad players in to the national league if there are other teams prepared to dish out contracts like that.
  15. Both players bring a real good energy to the midfield but I think Conlon has brought that to his game over the last 12 months and has much better quality then either of them. The problem is when Burgess and Taylor do play together the midfield is really too lightweight, hence can only play in a midfield 3. The manage is very clear he wants to play 2 up front so I expect Conlon plus A.N.Other in a 442 and a defensive minded player for a 3 man midfield. I think Taylor ( needs to prove it) as the option for 10 and with the potential to grow into the Conlon type of role. Personally I wou
  16. I didn't read anything into that. I thought he just threw a few names around of people involved at the club he already knew like Burgress, Pope and Garlick. The fact Burgess has been poor all season, has barely feature in match day squads says it all really.Another one I think we will try and move on.
  17. Do you think Chesterfield would go for a buy one get one free offer?
  18. Interesting this one. The link is the Chesterfield manager who worked with Manny at Aldershot. Non league transfer news are reporting a 10k fee has already been agreed to take him before 22nd April.If Manny is not in DC's future plans going forward why not. Probably more a rumour.

    He's been a fantastic servant (minus the past 2 years) but I think its time he moved on. I'm sure he could get one last payday for a team with ambitions to get out of National League. I would be very happy to see him back with the youth team, its always good to have someone who has been there and done it. I just hope we don't have a clamour for him to become the manager like we have had for previous legends.

    Phil, there is a cooling off period for any contract.
  21. I think that works at the top end where salaries are widely reported. You see this more and more in the NFL where long established players negotiate there own deals and look for clubs themselves. There is lees money involved but the agent really works better for players outside of the mega deals at the lower end of the spectrum. Clubs will try to take advantage of younger players who don't know any better if they show any potential and I think impartial advice to review the contract put before them is a really positive thing. Clubs can often work in a clandestine way with players so I th
  22. I didn't think that was a great performance today but we found a way to win it which is the sign of a good team. 6 wins on the bounce bloody brilliant. Tom Conlon motm he epitomised the display from the team today with hie workrate. A captain's performance. How odd was the referee today? Some of the decisions for fouls and throw ins were bizarre, not too mention having the whole pitch cleared of snow after 20 mins. Very very very strange.
  23. I do think 20 man squads won't work with the current fixtures however something has to give and the players union need to concede some ground somewhere . They won the case against salary caps but if they carry on I think there will a considerable number of clubs who are going to be in a very very tight financial position, either give players significant reduce terms and/or squads will be filled with kids after a strong 14/15 players. The bottom line generally speaking is the EFL is unsustainable with wages post covid - it was on life support pre covid. The economy Is going to take time t

    Thats what he needs to says to keep them motivated until the end of the season and not about making long term decisions on players. Both DC and DOF will be bringing in their own players.

    No but the players have, who have quite frankly being embarrassing for most of this season and a disgrace to the badge.
