    The Colclough sale was even worse as it was during our worst season for over three decades and they still thought it was great. I do think this pimping of players will come to end once Hassall is ousted, but that could be another year or more yet...

    Very disrespectful from Artell who fails to realise just how VIncent-Young played an instrumental part in absolutely annihilating us 12 months ago and is a cracking young player. I really like Perry but I don't think he's as good as a lot of people think... To me, it's a sad thing is we lost...

    Crewe Vs Walsall

    We always seem to have a really boring home game in August in recent years (Vale 0-0 in 2015, Portsmouth 0-0 in 2016, Barnet 1-0 win in 2017, MK Dons 0-0 in 2018) and this is the one where I reckon it'll end 0-0 or 1-1. I think the Bradford home game at the end of the month will be quite...

    The Bury summer signing uberthread. WARNING - Contains tinpot material

    Whilst I wholeheartedly agree and sympathise with almost everything that compilation of events has said. I object to the not being a case of overstretching yourselves to try and get promotion. Because you did do that, twice in fact. Of course Day has done that as a front to deflect attention...

    Salford City

    I think they can make the Championship like Burton did but once they get there they'll go no further and end up straight back down. That's when the change goes from signing lots of journeymen players on big wages to building a ridiculously elaborate Academy making out that the clubs initial aims...

    Oldham Vs Crewe

    I fear for Oldham, I really do. The club is nothing more than a corpse of its former self. Along with Wimbledon, Coventry and Notts County, Oldham have had one of the biggest declines in stature in English Football since the Premier League became a thing. If they ever depart from this league...

    Crewe Vs Plymbury

    That Palmer was so dodgy for Notts here last season that if we don't try and walk the ball in like we always do every first half of the season, we should win this if we test him. That said, Lowe's Bury were the best side (along with Mansfield) to come to the Alex last season and they dominated...

    The most frustrating Academy product we've ever had after Gary Roberts. But unlike Roberts, whose misdemeanours were mainly off the field, Moore was easily the most frustrating on it. Had a constant attitude that made him think he was better than what he was. From 2010-2012 in League Two he was...

    No way an absolute homebird like Kirk would ever move to Plymouth at this stage of his career. He's too busy frequenting De Bees and Nakatcha to even consider leaving the local area.

    George Ray improved massively once that dickhead we once had in charge was sacked and his son was swiftly fucked off to St Mirren. Ray was set to join Cambridge if Davis lasted that transfer window too. 5 years ago against Rochdale he put in the worst individual defensive performance I've ever...

    Darragh McAnthony has confirmed we're in for our old loanee from 2017 Callum Cooke from Peterborough. Would be a huge upgrade on Shaun Miller (who has been linked with a couple of National League clubs) in that role behind the target man but sadly either the fee for a permanent transfer or the...

    You can thank a mixture of Jean-Marc Bosman, Agents, ITV Digital Collapse, signing on fees and general increased money in the game for the fact there's no longer any squad continuity on a wide scale anymore.

    The 2019/20 Division Four New Kits Thread

    Like the look of our kits. As long as the home shirt isn't like the Doncaster style aberration of 2016-17 I don't mind them. Also nice to try out a different colour for the away kit. Getting bored of the same old white/black/blue kits now.

    Have you all noticed Steve Evans' promotions soon dried up when the emergency loan market (a personal favourite of his) was scrapped in 2016? Probably cost him a chance to sign 5 or 6 extra players a season on daft wages to get them over the line.

    Just need to tie them down by aged 17 if you want the millions these days. Sadly too many kids get their heads turned. Even we've suffered with our Category 2 Academy. We had a hotshot 16 year old striker called George Nunn a few years back. Soon as Chelsea offered us £300,000 for him his head...

    Newport County V Tranmere Rovers - League 2 Playoff Final 2018/19

    I agree they have more potential than Accrington but currently they're being run on the third lowest budget in the league. But I can't see Newport keeping this squad together, keeping Flynn for much longer (despite him being a local lad) or building their own ground anytime soon. Investment...

    Newport County V Tranmere Rovers - League 2 Playoff Final 2018/19

    Glad to see Tranmere back where they belong. Thoroughly deserved in a wide open League Two this season and they've shaken off their bottlers tag with two excellent seasons to propel them up to where they were five years ago. Their squad will need a rebuild to cope with the step above but I'd...

    Newport County V Tranmere Rovers - League 2 Playoff Final 2018/19

    Playing devil's advocate though, Mansfield dropped some silly, silly points in the run in. Losing to us, Vale and Stevenage for instance.

    Newport County V Tranmere Rovers - League 2 Playoff Final 2018/19

    These two are very very similar sides (as characterised by the fact that we lost 1-0 at both grounds but beat both of them 3-2 at home). Two defensively minded teams (despite the good strike rates of their forwards) were always going to serve up a snoozefest today. But it's the approach that's...

    Newport County V Tranmere Rovers - League 2 Playoff Final 2018/19

    Going forward you were absolutely fantastic but at the back I thought you were very weak and I thought that'd be your downfall in the playoffs. Yet you defended pretty well in the playoffs and the attack misfired (although the 10 men had an effect on that in the first game). It's a funny old game.
