Why the hell did you bin Finney off then?! :shut:
Wheeler seems to be on a mission to get rid of anyone who was friendly with our former manager.

Our defence today consisted of a centre mid & left back playing as centre backs, centre mid playing right back and Wishart the only one playing in his right position. Meanwhile we had 2 fit centre backs sitting on the bench.

Thanks for the 4 points Salford, unbelievable from our lads to to win that. Salford are an embarrassing club, no atmosphere whatsoever. Fingers crossed they go pop soon.

I would taken 3 points from this next 10 days so we’re there already, Happy Xmas!

There's a few times in a season where you end up going "oh shit".

When we beat Wrexham, I went "oh shit" and placed us from probable play off finishers to potential promotion challengers.

Today, given the results, I think I make us favourites for the league. Big January though, we need to keep Bonne, Ekpiteta and Brophy - the first two are speculation, the later I'm reliably told we rejected a six figure bid from a Football League team in August for. It's ours to lose.

Have you got money to invest in January? As Salford will and could come back at you later in the season. Would rather you went up as long as we can have the 3 points in March

The hope is that The Evil simply buy too many players and it leads to dressing room UNREST. They already have that little wanker Danny Lloyd who has done nothing all season.

We will undoubtedly lose over the Xmas period but our recent run has been very impressive. Beaten Harrogate, Fylde at home; Salford, Hartlepool and Ebbsfleet away.

I retain that if we'd had this team since the beginning of the season, we'd be mixing it with the top 7. Balanta, Munns and Wilkinson as an attacking unit is strong for this level and our defence has real battle in it now. Still an outside chance of catching up if we can keep this run going but that depends a lot on whether we can extend the loans of Wilkinson, Onariase and Goodliffe past January as all three are better than this league.

Yes, as the owners are very keen for us to get back in the league. I am expecting one ot two additions. We've apparently been trying to re-sign Jay Simpson for a few weeks, but there is no guarentee it will happen.

Doesn't suprise me as James Brophy is very talented. Needs to work on what he does without the ball and at times he can be a bit too cocky when trying to beat players.

I'd like to think that Bonne will stay till the end of the season and that only silly money will see us sell him.

A win is a win. The quicker we get to 50 odd points we can start concentrating on next season. That first half though... :dk:

Vilhete returning is a huge boost - he's such a versatile player and adds a lot of quality to our side.

Scrambled a draw with a deflected goal against the mighty Havant & Waterlooville.
Every week is a new low.
I was feeling optimistic until I seen his line up, Hawkes dropped again, starts and scores in his last league game, binned off the week after.

Got my ticket for Gateshead but I can't be arsed to watch Luke James run around aimlessly all afternoon, probably knock it on the head.
