Another keeper required ?
at 23:29 22 May 2022

BTW, don't want to disenfranchise him too early, it is Hornby.

LOL - don't forget Newton Heath, and as featured recently, the ever-changing Hartlepools Utd/ Hartlepool/ Hartlepool Utd.

Mansfield v Port Vale Play Off Final
at 08:33 20 May 2022

I share all of those sentiments Noah, particular about the scummy scabs. However, I can’t bring myself to hope for their success, particularly as me and my Spireite mates will probably plan a weekend bender if we play at Field Mill next season.

Brown, Dunne and Huzzey Appointed Permanently
at 18:14 17 May 2022

Without any metric to define success or failure (other than relegation obviously), I think it would have been very harsh for Wayne, Joe and Dave to take us from the brink of relegation to mid-table safety in less than half a season and not get the permanent jobs.

There were some encouraging signs shining through on occasion, so more of that to dispel nagging concerns from a few less than impressive performances will most welcome next season.

Good luck to them!

Whilst I agree with you it's very unlikely, worth bearing in mind those are U23 appearances. I don't think he's played at all in the Premiership itself? Still impressive though, and they clearly think enough of Todd to keep him on for another year.

If he is, he's probably making the right ones? However, I doubt he's making them in isolation even if he is.

Keeping Frank - must admit I'm kind of pleased with that. Sam Hornby going back to Newcastle is a shame, unless we're now planning a bid to sign him?

Parky was worse in a way, because Hull had asked permission to talk to him, been denied, and then did so anyway.

at 09:52 12 May 2022

…well, of course they are, they’ve just been promoted as champions. But definitely miffed that behind the scenes their manager Rob Edwards was already in negotiations with Watford. The official statement reads:

FGR confirms the departure of Head Coach Rob Edwards and Assistant Head Coach Kyle Richie. Rob & Richie were a key part of the team that gained promotion to League One this season. We’re disappointed that our support, loyalty and honesty towards Rob has been repaid in this way - with negotiations taking place behind our backs.
We had no contact from Watford, from whom we might expect less
[ed. think they mean more, or do they?] but in any event this kind of behaviour gives football a bad name.
We thank Rob for all his work at FGR - forgive him the manner of his departure and wish him well.

LOL - just realised that noting "they are normally in attendance at any away game I go to" might not be a coincidence?

Is George on his way?
at 14:53 9 May 2022

Certainly possible, either that or Wayne thought it was right to give Sam the last couple of games after his contribution to the season?

Or alternatively, to have another look at him in action before making Newcastle/ Sam an offer?

Fair enough Gerry - I will reserve further comment until the EFL inquiry into the serious disorder events you've reported. I haven't seen anything yet, but I have seen quite a few excellent fan videos of support and celebrations - if you can point me in the direction I'd appreciate it.

Evening Gerry

As I wasn't there, I can't comment on specifics, but I will add that these are almost certainly the same lads who follow us week in, week out, home and away, create the atmosphere, and have Col U blue blood flowing in their veins. Yes, they might be a bit rambunctious at times, but they're a big part of the reason why we are rightly famed for the passion of our support in the Football League - what we lack in numbers we more than make up for in volume thanks to them.

Usually when things spill over there's a trigger, and you've hinted at heavy-handed stewarding, which is by no means an excuse, but often a factor. I've seen blue flares on pitches up and down the country following the U's, and usually they are easily dealt with by a ground keeper with a bucket of water. As for Essex police, they are normally in attendance at any away game I go to, usually including Sgt Nicky Smith (who I had the pleasure to chat to most recently at Exeter).

Perhaps it's a generation thing, but these young lads bring a passion that is surely far preferable to the gnarly dark side of the proper old Barside, who were a completely different kettle of fish? I understand your concern, but also be careful what you wish for as a tepid, dour alternative.
