  1. That’s exactly how interpreted the announcement at first! However, It does suggest that the £160 purchase by mid April for existing ST holders is not subject to any further refund so I guess the £40 refund has already been applied. Quote: With the exception of adult prices after the 28th May, the prices above are the full price payable for renewing your season ticket, and no further refunds are applicable.
  2. Maybe the philosophy is a changing... Even Gary O’Donoghue can see we are crying our for some experience here and there.
  3. Come on Kieran Lee, just give us year and a half of your midfield expertise please. That’ll do for starters.
  4. Welcome back LS(2). As much as the team has missed the honesty, values and experience that Chris McCann brought to the team, the message board has in equal measure missed you.
  5. Not re-signing Chris McCann was, in hindsight, IMO, the biggest player related mistake the ‘club’ made prior to kicking off this season. So, it stands to reason that we still need a replacement in the C Mc mould in January. For me, that’s a given. However, that said, too much meddling elsewhere might be counter productive given the delicate balance between the positive signs we see when the team are ousing confidence, against the frustrating repetitive mistakes consistently made by 3/4 individuals who I don’t need to name. But that’s league 2 for you. It’s down to HK to make t
  6. Yes, Wardy scored a free kick from outside the corner of the penalty box in front of the Lookers. Near post, top corner! Taylor knocked in a peach as well to complete a 4-3 comeback win early season.
  7. First match: iPad connected to The “big telly” - oh dear, buffering problems ....... So tried the IMac, no problem whatsoever for each game we’ve watched so far.....
  8. ....and good luck to anyone developing a vaccine for that!
  9. We shouldn’t be praying for subs at half time straight off the back of an away win at Bolton.
  10. To keep everyone on their toes both on here and in the dressing room: Tomorrow, we embark on a run of 6 league games in just 18 days!
  11. Was it Ritchie who on deadline day (ish) signed Carss, Hughes and Kilkenny when we were in a bit of a hole? What a master stroke that was!.... and, as a result, didn’t we celebrate (relatively) good times? Over to you ‘Kewell and the Gang’. Joking aside, we need 3 quality signings on Friday.
  12. Harry and most of the players are totally out of their depth.
  13. ......and people think it’s acceptable to bad mouth him....
  14. Skybet are offering the home win at 21/20, With both the draw and away win at 12/5. £10 to spend, IFollow or Skybet?
  15. Without Wheater, we should just about be able to put out an 11 + 7 without relying on the scholars. However, there are so many Sat, Tue, Sat fixtures coming up during the coming season, every squad member could well have a part to play at some point, which makes me think that overall, we are still 2 or 3 light. I bet Kewell is grateful that we haven’t had a midweek fixture, so with a home tie and an an encouraging win Just a few days ago, he can’t have wished for anything more in preparation for Saturday.
  16. Surely, we must have enough material for a new thread - ‘Ex staff and that’?
  17. Ben Garrity signs on a season long loan from Blackpool.
  18. I agree, new broom and all that, if Harry is allowed to use it though, we shall see!
  19. I’ve read that he’s owed money, therefore he’s possibly unsettled at the club. Also, he’s seemingly not featured much in the friendly match reports I’ve read. He might not be off, but maybe he’s just slipped down the pecking order, especially if the Everton lad signs to add further competition up front. Throughout recruitment there’s been a lot of references to HK’s style of play, maybe Rowe doesn’t fit with that!?
  20. With the uncertainty surrounding Woods, Wheater, Hamer and Rowe, I think we all hope that Crusoe will be pretty busy updating for some time to come. There must be 2 or 3 others close to a deal. Saul Milanovic, Josh Hope and Manasse Mampala have all been strongly rumoured.
  21. Crusoe lists our 13 contracted pros which realistically could actually be 11 if Woods and Wheater are, as alleged, frozen out due to Covid contract related issues. Please correct me if I’m wrong but La Paz, Branger, Mouche and Egert are also no longer part of the 20/21 squad. Historically, our first team squad of 22-25 players has generally been the norm, which has included a full complement of loans, plus the odd promising youth or two. So, where does that leave us now? Are we still around 8 or 9 signings short?
