I would think that they are worried about a lot of consticuencies stretching from St Albans to the Berkshire/Wiltshire border.

I would think the new Harpenden & Berkhamsted seat will be closely contested.

Back in the '70's (I might have the wrong decade!) at Colcheter train station - "Harwich for the Continent, Frinton for the incontinent"!

Just a slogan that has stayed with me!

The conservatives appear to be very worried about reclaiming Chesham & Amersham as Rishi was campaigning at The Meadow, Chesham United FC today!

All my relatives still living in Chesham are expecting it to stay with the Lib Dems, but none of them expected the tories to lose it at the by-election! HS2 & Brexit (in no particular order) will ever be forgiven in the area.

It is definitely owned by Ashley, but I think (maybe wrongly) that they have a long lease.

I wouldn't argue too much against many of your allocations Bazzain, but why are Coventry a basket case? In the past perhaps, but currently?

My other query would West Bromich not being in the delusional section!

Cheers for the information.

How the club got hold of the neutral tickets is probably a question best not answered!

I expect that both clubs sold out their allocation of tickets & that the spaces were due to the "neutral" areas not being full.

Out of interest, why/how did we manage (as it appears) to have a higher allocation than they did today? Or have the EFL increased the number available outside of the clubs?

End of Term Report 23/24 – Midfield (plus part two of the Patreon pod)

Is it harsh Clive? I'm not comparing him ability wise with those players, just his age & whether he will ever be able to score goals. IMO he will never be more than five goals a season & unlikely to reach the scoring heights of Andy McCulloch or Stewart Wardley!

Ian Wright was also scoring lots of goals while playing for Greenwich Borough, as was Les Ferdinand at Southall. Sinclair wasn't too productive while on loan at Torquay, although his record was better than I had realised & he was playing at a higher level!

Recently, I've heard you mention the possibility of Armstrong playing the "Traore" role of playing wide & going past defenders with pace. This is something I've mentioned to others during the season & I would like to see if he could adapt to that role.

Possibly I should wait until the report on the forwards is issued, but as they were included in the Podcast I would like to ask a question about Sinclair Armstrong.

I know that I probably have the lowest opinion of his abilities on this message board, but why is he given so much space due to his age?

Not that I should really be comparing him to the players I'm about to mention, but how many goals had the following scored by the time they reached 20? Roger Morgan, Paul Goddard, Clive Allen, Bradley Allen, Kevin Gallen, Danny Dichio for us & many, many others for different clubs.

If you can't score goals by that age, what is the likelihood that you will ever become more than a five goal a season person? Geoff Hurst is the only player I can recall that went from zero to hero after that age.

Various law enforcement agencies? Come on Boston, we need to know!

DEA? FBI? Boston PD? State Police? Tobacco & Alcohol?

It all makes a difference to what rumours we can start regarding your links with this gentleman.

I know he had a very good career, but I was only commenting on his time at Rangers & IMO he cost us promotion that season.

I'm also very suspicious of any player that only spent one season at a club managed by Docherty! This is based on what I was told by a player that he tried to sign for Manchester United.

Not that I know that Woods have been given the same incentives!

On that reasoning, shouldn't West Bromich have a great dislike of Rangers? I suspect that they don't accept that the second half took place in 1967 either!

I think that there goalkeeper might be on a few clubs' list.

His control of the penalty area & leaving his line to catch crosses was quite impressive.

Should this thread be about goals scored on the players debut, or the players first goal for the club?

Only in the seasons they were good enough to be in the top division!

I remember Needham playing in Division One having been relegated from the Senior.

Mind you, the ground & facilities are a little bit better now!

If the player is to become a free agent, I think that a pre contract agreement can be signed by both parties.

Whether this would be legally binding, I don't know.

League 1 Playoff Final

I know that it's silly, but the top match for me today was the Scottish League 2 play off!

I've no idea why Stranraer are "my Scottish team" (apart from being geographicly isolated), but I'm delighted that they beat moneybags East Kilbride to retain there place in the league. Goals in 117 & 120+ minutes did the job!
