|Defensive Woes Over? Thu 25th Nov 1999 17:38|
With Town recording their third clean sheet in a row and fourth in six games it seems the defensive frailties which dogged the last couple of months may have been cured. With five centre-halves used during this period (Mowbray, McGreal, Venus, Thetis and Brown) it seems that Town also have strength in depth in this area, especially as Adam Tanner and Titus Bramble are both reaching fitness after injuries. Now all we've got to do is get the goals going in at the other end...
|Town 1-0 Wolves Thu 25th Nov 1999 11:35|
Town got back to winning ways with a 1-0 victory over Wolves. Like most sides these days Wolves came to defend in numbers and try and sneak the draw. A James Scowcroft goal ten minutes into the second half prevented this and gave the crowd at least some entertainment unlike other recent visitors, most notably Tranmere.
|Town Appeal Against Dyer Verdict Wed 24th Nov 1999 17:24|
Town are appealing against yesterday's Football League tribunal which ordered them to pay £50,000 to Kieron Dyer. The money was part of Dyer's last signing on fee agreed when he signed his last contract and still due to his as he made no formal transfer request. The club continue to argue otherwise. A club statement said "We are disappointed at the tribunal's verdict which we do not, and because of what we know cannot, accept. We intend to lodge an appeal."
|Magilton New Penalty Taker Wed 24th Nov 1999 15:38|
Jim Magilton has been confirmed as Town's new penalty taker. He replaces Mark Venus who recently missed two in successive games. Magilton has previously taken penalties for Oxford and Southampton and will hopefully fill the position which has never really been claimed by anyone since the days of John Wark and Neil Thompson, penalty kings both. In the last couple of years Venus has missed three, Johnson two, whilst Taricco, Scowcroft, Tanner, Dyer and Mathie have also missed one each.
|Cash Row With Kieron Wed 24th Nov 1999 12:14|
Former Town midfielder Kieron Dyer has won a battle for £50,000 with Town. At a hearing yesterday Kieron was awared the money after the Football League were brought in to settle the dispute surrounding Kieron's signing on fee, an amount of which the club had failed to pay. Town stated on several occasions throughout the summer that Dyer asked for a transfer, something that seems now was not the case. Had Dyer put in a transfer request and not merely asked to be informed of any interest from Premiership clubs (as Dyer and his agent claim) he would no longer have been entitled to the £50,000. Town have 14 days to appeal.
