  1. He did. However I'd keep hairy smelly backside to yourself!
  2. Established player at this level. Played almost every game last season for Rochdale in which they finished eighth. I would be happy signing Eastham. Not sure why it hasn't worked out at Fleetwood, perhaps injured?
  3. Before I start, if true then I'll get behind Brass/Kidd/Lowe 100% and hope they prove a success and me wrong. Brass - a manager with a limited and relatively poor managerial record who to date hasn't shown anything different that will swing our fortunes (albeit in very difficult circumstances) in fact the football I've witnessed in his short tenure has been very 1 dimensional and defensive appearing to be a 'damage limitation' approach. I like Brass as a person and really hope he proves a success but I don't understand what he will offer different from Flitcroft so the decision to sack him and rely on Brass seems a poor one to me. I Lowe - doubt he will offer anything as a player at this level and has zero managerial or coaching experience? Combining this with Brass as manage during our current form apears quite a bizarre decision particularly given our reported money problems. As we all know Lowe will only move if it makes financial sense and compensation will be involved. All I can think is that it's a PR exercise from Day to mask his decision to take the cheap option in Brass. I can't help think this money should have been invested in an experienced number 2 or a manager with new ideas. Kidd - hugely successful in our youth team setup and has expressed his desire to stay in this role. Think this is absolutely the right decision given the excellent job he's done.
  4. Agree thought Williams could have saved it if he was braver following a heavy touch from their player.
  5. I think playing players in their correct positions would be a start!
  6. 38% possession first half, ouch! As usual goes 2 up front when we're losing. Do hope we get something from the game mind
  7. Spoke to Danny before the game in the club shop. Said it was an ankle injury and should be back for the next game
  8. Can any one tell me where Mahor played when he came on? Presume right back pushing Jones further up the pitch? Also, was it the same formation as Saturday or did Flitcroft revert to a 4-4-2?
  9. Looks on paper a decent showing away at a championship side
  10. Leon Clarke scores tonight assisted by a Chris Hussey. Can't believe people are questioning his crossing ability, he assisted 8 goals last season from left back!
  11. Really hits home how the cut in wage budget has seen some integral performers of last seasons average campaign leave the club resulting in what must surely be a difficult season ahead. Have they been adequately replaced? Leon Clarke - 18 goals, closest to him was Pope/Mayor with 7. In my opinion probably the biggest loss to the club and yet to be replaced. Interestingly Lowe and Rose (both pushed out) scored 6 a piece with almost half the starts of Tom Pope who at this moment in time will be our most heavily relied upon striker, despite being touted to other clubs. Nicky Clarke has an uninspiring record in Scottish ledges equivalent to conference/conference north standard. Hope is unproven at this level and hasn't even featured upfront for a couple of seasons but imo does have the physical and technical attributed to be a success. Imo a lot of work required here and with the season due to start in a couple of days I fear this could be our undoing unless sorted. Chris Hussey - 9 assists to his name and the leagues joint 9th highest assist contributor. My personal player of the season as I believe his set piece and crossing ability was evidently pivotal in a lot if goals/results. Lot if come ts around his defensive ability bit I have seen far far worse and imo was solid enough for this level. Has joined a team pushing for promotion which I believe says it all. Positive reviews so far from bury fans and bradford fans on Leigh who could prove a good replacement. Lot of pressure for somebody else to step up on set pieces and to deliver the assists next season. Peter Clarke - Fans player of the season. Ever present rock at CB last year who I'm sure no one would have wanted to leave. Kay on paper seems a good replacement with Barnett as back up. If money has been saved here thdn it could be a nice bit of business. What's everyone's thoughts. Are we nailed on for relegation or are fans confident in the replacementsame thus far?
  12. Think everyone is! Makes sense though as must be commanding a decent fee and imo could be replaced with better for cheaper.
  13. Cheers everyone! Didn't know I had the same birthday as Rocky and George Bush!
  14. I don't think I'd be far off that ūüėĀ
  15. My concern is that that was in the lower Scottish leagues probably conference standard or below considering Andy Haworth and Danny Racchi went to the SPL after being released by league 2 Bury. Really hope my concerns prove to be way off the mark!
