Owain Fon Williams and 2 kids they had on loan last season (think from Sunderland) are all I have seen them sign, I would be very suprised to see them up there

I like the cut of his jib - self deprecating humour is a nice trait to have!!



Shockingly bad at media work is good old uncle Les, if I were their chairman; I'd ban him from speaking to anyone in case he spouts more drivel or drops another clanger.

They finished above us in the table last season. It's no different Dickov saying similar which I think he has, or something along them lines.

It's 20% PR being a manager these days. Lip service to keep the fans happy. Tranmere will probably be similar to us again, fighting the drop zone, along with Bury and probably Rochdale this time given they've shot their load. Can you imagine the uproar amongst fans if the manager comes out, a few weeks before the season with "Tell you what, I've looked at the squad and we're utterly fucked. But I'll give it a shot anyway".

Bottom line is look at the table, especially for the last few season. It's heavily weighted on those with money and momentum behind them. The clubs like us, Tranmere, Walsall, Brentford etc. We're just stagnant now and awaiting either a cash injection from an owner who fancies a shot at football club roulette or eventual relegation which will probably see us looking at division 3 as the best we could ever hope for.

"The ball was drilled low across the face of the area by Zola to a rampaging riddler, about 20 yards out near the corner of the penalty area. One touch from Cooksey and thwaboom! The ball seared the turf as it cracked into the bottom left corner. It was a truly brilliant goal, with fluid teamwork and a marvellous finish giving Davison no chance at all."

Brentford have just had a huge injection of cash from new investors and have managed to sign the likes of Donaldson and Douglas, expect them to break that middle of the road group. The one thing that gives a club like us hope is that there is usually a suprise package each season in this Division

The surprise package of last season was Bournemouth. But they had momentum behind them, similar to Rochdale. It's when that momentum stops is when the trouble kicks in. I'd not consider Orient the surprise package. They had a good run at the right time of the season. We had a good run but on the wrong time of the season.

Our best chance to get out of this division, as was Tranmere's was the first season we came down. Once you start hanging about for a few years the rot sets in, as both clubs have seen and several more who are below us.

Grim though it's been there are plenty of clubs of not dissimilar status who've fallen further. oxford, Luton, Plymouth, Bristol Rovers, Bradford, Swindon, Stockport etc...

"The majority of the players in our dressing room have played together for a year. We could almost put out an XI that has played 25 games together.I think there's a massive bonus for us. The lads know each other and they know what it is like to play alongside each other and flirt with relegation."
