So the owners are the board. Yup correct. I'd suggest that Gourlay & Co all sit in there.

a few flashes of skill, and one or two half decent games aside he has been since he arrived


All that said - he's still far more productive than some of our mongtard 'fans'

Booing your own player, while he's playing is quite frankly, oxf*rd out of order.

Re: Stam blames poor past management

Stam is probably trying to make a fair point, but as usual, he doesnt translate too well. Who knows what the internal stewardship , decision making process, & recruitment policy is internally - however from my lofty view BT comes across overly slick, with little experience , and I have to questi...

Re: Rumour - Chris Martin

He's signaficantly better than the sum of everyone else we currently have available in that position , and will add muscle, nous, movement and a target to hit in the box. Its a yes from me. Who has been the nousiest player over the years? Cureton has to be up there surely. Big Dave Kitson - in rece...

Re: In or Out? New poll.

If ever there was a need for 1/2 new striker(s) its now. We're sooo timid up front, and I am sure that we would be nowhere near our current position, if we'd invested in this area in August. Its not like we dont create - we do - albeit in a mind numbing style, but when we cant bury those chances - o...

Stam takes trick or treating seriously and has a few scars post-transition out of his Frankenstein costume.... but it's nothing compared to last year when he dressed up as the wicked witch of the east .

We'd sell - for silly money - unless theres some ridiculously low £ release clause in his contract - a la AAH.

Re: Best loan signing

I always rated Luke Chadwick, whilst he was with us, but he never really seemed to push on and make it big. Omar Daley also seemed to have a lot of potential, but again, he never really made it. Though I have noticed a definite downward trajectory of our league position since Eric Obina left. Wasn'...

Re: Kevin Doyle

First saw him play for us in the pre-season vs. Farnborough , and knew we had a great player on our hands.

As one of the 106'ers - a club legend.

We could do with a forwards coach - lets get him in.
