Re: New striker

I believe this is not the first striker we have signed from Bedford Town (although I may have my facts wrong). I think we signed John Symonds in around 1995 midway through the season for about £10,000, but my recollection is we cocked up the paperwork and he walked away on a free 6 months later.

Re: Russell Milton

I agree Si.

I obviously hope that FGR do terribly and that extends to Cotterill, Sercombe and Long. But Milton is different and I can only wish him the best.

Re: Owen Evans

Happy with that.

And Flynn obviously has confidence.

2 decent keepers. How there can be any negativity is beyond me!

Would a keeper from the Championship with 5 EFL cup games be a better signing?

Re: Stevenage chasing Lewis Freestone

Sorry to ask daft question. Why is there a fee for Freestone but not Lloyd? Aren’t they both 24?

Re: Open comment to the board

It’s the Town that needs to back the club. And the fickle fanbase. I was embarrassed when I watched the AGM feed. The Directors should have cut the whinging fans off at their knees. To humour that nonsense and actually broadcast it was cringeworthy. Let’s hope DC sees enough opportunity here to stay...

Re: Curtis Davies

I note Curtis Davies’ last goal was against Luke Southwood (for Derby v Reading)

So how many consecutive goals has Curtis slotted past Luke Southwood over a 2 year period!

Re: Cheltenham Town v Bristol Rovers

Disappointing day. Looking for positives. There weren’t many…. Sercombe was outstanding in the very few minutes he was on. Was surprised he didn’t start. He will be a key player next year. Matty Taylor is back and still knows where the goal is At least Southwood wasn’t sent off for the penalty. He m...

Re: New manager

I’m really happy with that. Seems highly regarded at former clubs. Was impressed with him when he managed Bristol Rovers.

Hopefully if / when we get relegated, he will have stabilised things a bit. I don’t fear relegation as long as we aren’t in free fall.

Re: Wade Elliott after Exeter defeat

We know we’re a team which, at best, will wobble between league one and two. That’s not wishing to throw the towel in, but the next direction of travel was highly likely to be downwards, albeit it would be nice to go down with some fight. In terms of assessing whether WE is the right man for the job...

Re: Goalkeeper

A question for JP

Has Luke Southwood been training with us in pre-season?

If an outfield player, he would be 2 weeks behind. Perhaps as a keeper, slightly easier for him to catch-up.
