    Stickied League 2 Transfer Rumours/Confirmed Transfers 2018/2019

    To be fair his best position would probably be as a proper number ten, but not many clubs down here play that way. If you get the Grant of the second half of last season and who Luton seem to have had then it’s a decent signing, if it’s the Grant of his first year with us then he’s the best...

    Surely means Hamilton is going? You have to play Grant on the left to get the best out of him and I’m sure that’s where he plays now. Grant really ought to push for a permanent move from Forest. He probably should’ve left last summer rather than sign that three year deal. He’s very good and...

    Bad Owners

    Hardy is an example of how you need a bit of luck as an owner. Start off with a left field managerial appointment, have a quiet summer signing wise and he was a few refereeing decisions away from seeing us to the new Wembley for the first time. Back said manager with a huge budget and bring in...

    We also appear to have reached a delightful place where anything that can go wrong will go wrong. Vaughan and Kellett put in a couple of good performances in a row for the first time all season then manage to both get injured. The defence actually does a job for a whole game and restricts the...

    Adult tickets are £20-24 depending on which stand, when you buy them etc. Our support is, I think, disproportionately very old and very young at the minute, though. It’s the second time he’s done the £2 one, but he’s done loads of other different ones as well. I suspect that he’d like to do it...

    We have about 4,000 season ticket holders I think, and I suspect our average pay on the day price is something like £15 with it being so cheap for kids usually anyway. So £30k sales vs £20k sales. A difference, but I suspect a lot of that will be wiped out by increased sales of food, drink, in...

    There'll be a hit, but probably not as much as you would guess when there's 10,000 people taking the offer up. To be fair to Hardy, the one area where he is beyond criticism is the way that he's managed to grow our crowds on the back of dragging people in initially with a flurry of cheap ticket...

    Basically exactly what we need. Think we’ve basically got him because we’ve offered 18 months, which is a lot for a player of that age but we are very much in needs must territory.

    Looks like we’re signing Jim O’Brien from Bradford, seems like they’re sorry to see him go and he’s played a part in their recent upturn in form, so could be a good one.

    We’ve also dropped about 700 points from winning positions, what a team.

    Thought we were good today and should’ve won, but Ardley shit it a bit with some weird subs and the penalty was seemingly a terrible decisions. What it is when you’re at the bottom, take the point. We have absolutely got to beat Cambridge next week.

    Oldham v Notts

    I think that Nolan wanted to keep Collin. He didn't exactly freeze Fitzsimons out as well, he had the number one shirt and then randomly kicked a bloke to get himself sent off and lose us a point.

    We've cut Keston Davies' loan short after he twatted the ball at that Macclesfield player the other day. I wouldn't be surprised to see Ben Hall and Nathan Thomas go the same way, as well as Elliott Ward and Cedric Evina who are only on short term contracts. Terry Hawkridge looks like he's going...

    Oldham v Notts

    To be fair to me, I was one of the few who didn’t rate him then either. The warning signs were there IMO - he got away with a few, and we just weren’t under so much pressure so his massive issues with crosses weren’t exposed so often.

    Good god Fitzsimons is so bad.
