"But it was just the group of lads. We had Alan Tate, Garry Monk, Leon Britton, Ferrie Bodde, Jason Scotland, we had a great team bond. And then there was the coaching staff
"Even the kit lady Sue (Eames), everyone who was involved at the club, we all had that togetherness and that was key about my time there."
So many times we hear this type of comment from ex players.
Rose tinted glasses maybe but I do believe that was a big reason for our success as we did tend to play as a team and the players for each other.
The change in the type of player we brought in in the last few seasons did seem to change that.

Well it has been for me.
I’ve been a Trust member from day one, but over the last couple of seasons I let my membership lapse, due to what I perceived as a lack of decision making within the organization.
Now I’m not here to say that it’s perfect but I do believe that things are moving in the right direction with some purpose and that today I (x3) have rejoined.
Over the last 24 hours there have been calls for boycotts and similar actions, and as well intentioned I think they are, I do believe it will have little influence
The Trust is the only means we have in an attempt to make changes, whether people agree or not, it is the means of letting the views of the fans be known.
I could have just sat on the outside shrugging my shoulders on every issue that has made me feel less part of OUR club.
I’ve been through 80’s when we nearly lost the club and again through the Petty era. This is slightly different, but however small our membership adds to the figures it still shows that the Trust does have the backing of fans.
Now this is my personal view and not some rallying call, but I just hope that other fans give a few moments thoughts in making a decision either way. (No regrets)

Now that this window is closed what have we got to look forward to in a few months?
Off the top of my head the following 20 players could be gone
Players out on loan/high earners/out of contract - 14
Ayew x 2
Add to those players who could well be saleable assets - 5
Loan - 1
CCV back to Spurs
Consolidation and progress??
|Back home and a few thoughts|

Without going into much detail, a few thoughts from today.
Before the game the minutes silence was impeccably held apart from one photographer who wandered around the teams and others (British Legion?) taking photo’s
Why was his job so important that respect could not be shown?
To the game.
First half we not only dominated but totally destroyed them. Total control with some very, very good passages of play.
How we were only 1 up at HT was only down to not being more clinical and higher temp when in the last third.
For a lightweight team it was a pleasure to see the players stand up to the more robust play from Rotherham.
Second half we had a good couple of chances to kill the game but allowed their keeper to make saves.
Haven’t seen the penalty incidents again but it did seem that Nordfeldt was to blame for the first.
This gave Rotherham the glimmer of hope they needed and upped their game biting more in the tackle etc. Our discipline seemed to go at this point and we lost our shape.
Overall a very good performance but the next stage in the teams development is to finish teams off when in control of the game.
After the game.
Walking past the coaches there was some verbal’s going on between a few from each side, and a few from the coaches trying to get at the Rotherham fans higher up looking down. Did see at least one get up to the fence and a few punches thrown.
Walking back towards our car we chatted with a couple of Rotherham fans who very very complimentary towards our team but were more than happy with the win.
Again chatted in the car park with some other fans who were very open to the fact that it was a smash and grab result, and that we were easily the best football side they have seen this season, but that we do need more of a cutting edge.
Good to hear that we are heading in the right direction.
To end, the result wasn’t a positive but most of the day was very enjoyable and gives hope for the season.
