|EFL Reaffirms Support For Taking Knee|
Glad you know better than Rashford, Saka and Sancho how best to oppose racism, Taricco fan.
I wonder what it is about the gesture that you find so threatening. It has been pointed out time and time again it is not about a political movement or defunding the police. Where are the right of centre political movements doing something to oppose racism that players like Saka, Rashford and Sancho face every day?
|Ward on Target as U23s Draw at Braintree|
Ward replaced himself off the bench! (Presumably a different player with the same surname.) Good to see Morris played some more minutes too.
|Dobra Impresses as Albania U21s Win|
We haven't let him go for nothing and nowhere has it been stated that we would not expect a fee should a move be agreed.
|One of the Strongest Squads?|
These statistics represent how the players have performed which explains why they reflect the league position we are in. The issue is that they should be capable of performing much better. It has been poor tactics, the impossible task of managing such a bloated squad and a lack of fitness that has seen us where we are. I struggle to believe that McGuinness is the 10th best player in this league. He is not even clearly our best defender.
|Be Careful What You Wish For|
Any new manager worth their salt would be looking to trim the squad and build around the 20-30 players they saw as the future of the club. That only takes investment if it involves paying players off. Any player who values their career will be looking to go somewhere to play football. If we cannot sell players we should be able to transfer them on frees or loan them out for at least a proportion of their wages.
|They Shoot Horses, Don't They?|
Minor point but he is owner and not president of the club.
I don't believe we currently have a president of the club do we? Lady Blanche Cobbold and Bobby Robson were honorary presidents I believe.
Some good points but I don't think Marcus Evans is going to take a lot of notice of what the fans think, aside from the financial hit when we stop going.
|Town Linked With Tyke Thomas|
No wide player in 20 years? That includes Walters, Murphy and Currie, even Edwards! Agreed we spent some time trying to get wide players that were not successful.
|Premier League Clubs Agree Â£50m Rescue Package for Leagues One and Two|
A Â£50M rescue package split between 48 clubs. Or approximately Â£1M per club. This is less than half what top Premier League clubs are paying on a single transfer fee. If that is all the clubs need to stay afloat fair enough but it looks to me like it is a drop in the ocean.
|Taylor: A Great Test for Our Lads|
We have signed Oli Norwood? Not sure he should be replacing James off the bench though! Presumably that should read Hawkins.
|Norris: Whoever Was the Best in Training Played|
Influenced by but not dictated by. If someone clearly isn't training well it sends the wrong message and suggests that player has more to offer than he is currently giving. However, it is how someone performs on the pitch that matters most. That needs careful management taking into account factors such as confidence (bred from knowing they have a role to play) and fitting in with and knowing the players around you (which comes from knowing the role you and they have and consistently playing and training with them in those roles).
Going to be a lot of rotation this season if there are more fixtures per week but needs more careful management than appeared to happen a lot of last season.
