  1. A genuine question: Can he go after someone for calling him a ‘c__t’? Apart from racist language, when does an insult cross over legal boundaries?
  2. Very definitely- two loanees plus two or three of the trialists I reckon… The big question is whether Bahamboula will still be with us come 7 August
  3. Final score: 2-1. Goal-scorers: Oldham Hart (2); Crewe Kirk (1) Attendance: 799 (55 from Crewe)

  5. Team for tonight’s friendly vs Crewe: Trialist Clarke, McGahey, Sheehan Adams, Diarra, Whelan, Hart DKD, Hope, Bahamboula
  6. Stick to your principles and don’t go - if you do go then your boycott will have meant nothing. I will be at the game so I’ll let you know how she does
  7. Whatever the reason, it is sad to see the steady erosion of a once proud fan base. My only hope is that a change is going to come before it is too late to recover the numbers. My fear is that some may be lost forever.
  8. It would be interesting to know exactly how many will join the home game boycott this season
  9. Interesting. I was at Maidenhead versus Leyton Orient yesterday - hadn’t realised that it was the Barnes we had here. Orient have picked up Darren Pratley who looked classy in the middle of the park. A couple of others stood out: the keeper Vigouroux and Happe at the back. Entertaining if error strewn game. Orient were in control until Maidenhead equalised but then had a major wobble before eventually grabbing the winner from the spot.
  10. This is a nothing thread. Let’s not keep looking for things to moan and whinge about eh lads and lasses? There… I feel much better for having got that off my chest. Nothing to see here, move on…
  11. They must have offered him BIG money or a part in a new movie…The lad obviously knows what he wants from football
  12. Or they could just both be shite managers?
  13. Arsenal, Leeds, Bournemouth, Leicester, Middlesbrough, Wigan, Bristol City...
  14. FourFourTwo magazine has Swindon to be relegated with Scunthorpe finishing bottom. Latics predicted final position is 20th just one place behind the mighty Sutton Utd… As for the other end of the table - Newport top and Bradford second… oh, hang on… aren’t they our first two opponents?
  15. Have to agree with this. There is no real relationship with our neighbours and betters - given our proximity to the two Manchester clubs I would have expected to see more loanees over the years and also the occasional friendly. I imagine that the toxic atmosphere that that surrounds our calamity of a club has a lot to do with this state of affairs. Overseas tours and tournaments are a highly lucrative source of income and will also be so - but it would not be too difficult to slot in a friendly or two with regional clubs. Also - You only have to look at the BBC football gossip section to see that United feature prominently on a daily basis - today for example they are linked with Real Madrid’s Raphael Varane, Ruben Neves (£35m from Wolves), Leon Goretzka (purported offer of £200k per week) etc. I hear the argument of ‘why would/should they?’ ringing in my ears... and, though difficult to disagree with that, it’s still a sad indictment of the direction that football continues to follow.
  16. Er.. Clarke didn’t play on Saturday though..
  17. The first game of the new season is now only 17 days away... The ‘horrible realisation that this is us done’ ... just doesn’t bear thinking about. i fully expect that, as a minimum, two or three of the players currently on trial will be offered contracts. Having only watched the game against the plastics, it is not fair to judge but I fear the worst as to the quality of the footballers that Curle has to choose from. Furman looked okay though some of his cross field passing on Saturday was fraught with danger. So far, the manager has brought in five of ‘his choice’ players. Of these we have yet to see much of Clarke or Hope (but he showed promise on Saturday), and Leutwiler is still warming the bench for Canada at the Gold Cup. Of the others, the word on Hart is that he is a tidy left footer while McGahey didn’t impress on Saturday on the right of a back three. As for those who were here last season, only Piergiann, Adams and Whelan look like they are getting up to speed. DKD has flitted around the pitch to no effect. Dearnley has had little of the right type of ball to show his strengths. Bahamboula is only just back from his stay on the North East coast. Jameson still looks a liability at the back. Yes it is dangerous to form too definite an opinion based on a fragmented preseason so far, but ...
  18. They could run the rule over our eight or so trialists and potentially snatch them from under our noses... possibly
  19. It was a cracking header against the plastics though!
  20. I’m old enough to remember a pint of mixed…
