  1. I joined on condition I was personally reminded each week....
  2. not as far as i can see, but I'm not very familiar with it.
  3. Complimentary upboat from me then!
  4. thanks, not disparaging Matt's or you. in fact very happy to believe it from Matt, I'd just not seen that he said that. Pity you cannot go back and look at Chron archive any more too.
  5. Overall I agree the point. I'm not sure it's just Corney bullshit though, some managers prefer a bigger squad, some don't and some wanted a smaller higher quality sqaud, but that didn't seem to work out. I think we simply were using the deposit to fill the squad to a more respectable level to give us a chance tochallenge. Personally I don't think we are a millions miles from putting a few results together, I've confidence in Shez. and as he has said, we can quash the myth that players were signed over him. He has said he has the final say, I've always been confident of that. He's not the tyoe to allow others to dictate.
  6. Some of the teams with Development Squads Peterborough Bristol Rovers Blackburn Gillingham Walsall Fleetwood Bradford Bury Rochdale Even Chorley….
  7. For years we've moaned about our squad being too small, and now it's too big! I'd be wary of using the trasnfermarkt site though. For example Shrewsbury Official has a first Team of 34. I think there are varying definitions, including Youth contracts in some cases. Blackburn official has 27 FT, but their last development team had 12 players not listed as part of the first team, so that is squad of approaching 40 assuming some didn't get named. Ours on transfermarkt includes the likes of Kallum Mantack, Jamie Stott and Mto a lesser extent Mason Fawns they are Reserve/Youth type. I am sure Shrewsbury have the same, not comparing apples and pears for me.
  8. Isn't that Moisey quote "weeks rather than months" from his radio a few weeks ago rather than a new one ie another few weeks becoming months?
  9. That's has been guessed at, and is a fair assumption, but not confirmed. Anyway, how often have the Chron have run things leading to a rant? Not sure why this time was different.
  10. I know the translation can be ropey and mean th eopposite sometimes. This is the unexplained part of the whole thing for me. Simon corney was not forced to reveal the potential buyer, he announced it. SC is known for keeping most of the dealings under wraps. Agents are notoriously secretive too (except to promote a players but even that is behind the scenes briefing normally). None of this need have come out unless much further along the line.
  11. The original point was whether clubs sufffered when in the middle of takeovers, rather than the consequences of takeovers. Some do, some don't. I was merely pointing out ones that didn't, during the takeovers. To re-iterate, all the ones I have posted had takeovers in recent years, and during that time, their form did not suffer unduly. And on another post, I said I didn't think our current form was a result of the takeover unsettling the time, and I think Shez can keep us from falling too far behind. As I also said it is too early and not enough fact to make a judgement whether the takeover, if it indeed happens, is good for us or not. And I stated it is right to be cautious and sceptical given our history. But, it's too soon to judge the merits or othewise. Of course, there are dangers and the examples of us and the ones you have given are why we should be cautious. But the point was could a manager shield his players from off the field stuff, and yes he can. As I believe Shez can.
  12. Yes, but they have predominantly moved to serious financial problems, even fraud. It is equally as possible that we may move to having more money ( I know far from certain, but at the moment it is unknown). So I say even then, Northampton by way of an example. Southampton. Reading to a certain extent. Portsmouth. Everton. Leeds Forest Even Blackpools recent court case and boycott has not stopped them climbing

  14. Glebe came from 1-0 down to draw 1-1 at Phoenix Sports after normal time. Kevin Ogboe gave Phoenix a 1-0 lead on the stroke of half time but Luke Miller pulled Glebe level on 57 minutes and that forced the game into extra time during which there was no further score. The penalty shootout was just as dramatic as the whole game had been and Phoenix eventually won 5-4.
