League One cap proposals
at 10:18 20 May 2020

According to Telegraph, and as from 2021:

1) Total squad salary bill £2.5m

2) 20 senior players only in squad (age 21+)

3) Of whom 8 are home-grown

You'd think that last requirement would require 2/3 seasons to implement, and also ensure a gradual, but massive drop in standards

It's a 10 minute eulogy from cricketer David Lloyd (Bumble) to Accrington Stanley - really captures the spirit of fandom away from the Premier issues of the day.

Having myself suggested it, I am indebted to Hoppy for the research.

Adam Przybek

Edwards, D Collins, Lea, Tibbott

W Reed, Gavin Williams, Geraint Williams, Elsworthy

Mick Hill, Tom Lawrence

I never saw Billy Reed play (has anyone on here?) but his stats warrant a start.

Hoppy's full list:


Lewis Price, Michael Crowe, Adam Przybek

Troy Brown, Danny Collins, James Collins, Elliot Hewitt, Andy Legg, Ben Thatcher, James Wilson, Josh Yorwerth, Les Tibbott

Billy Baker, Christopher Barnard, Jack Collison, , John Elsworthy, Emyr Huws, Cyril Lea, Trevor Morris, William Reed, Gavin Williams, Geraint Williams, Jackie Williams, Jonathan Williams , Gwion Edwards,

Ellis Harrison, Mick Hill, Tom Lawrence, Keifer Moore, Aled Owen, Derek Rees

Best loyal servant team
at 13:31 19 Apr 2020

RULES: 1) 250 + apps (if you extend down to 200 the field will be wider, but not much)
2) If you never saw enough of these to form a team, you can drop to 200 (see at the bottom).
3) If you want to restrict your team to those you actually saw play, then just indicate .
4) If you didn't see enough of these to form a team, after using as many as you can, then complete your team with any long-serving players (say at least 5 seasons, that you did see)


Bailey, Wright, Forrest, Cooper

Burley, Carberry, Yallop, Stockwell, Zondervan, McCall, Mills, Malcolm, Wilnis

Baxter, Hunter, Osman, Butcher, Linighan, Beattie, Chambers

Wark, Tommy Parker, Elsworthy, Dai Rees, Gates, Leadbetter, Viljoen, Woods, Holland, Magilton, Milton, Dozzell, Mick Lambert, Peter Morris, Skuse.

Crawford, Phillips, Tom Garneys, Mariner, Scowcroft, Whymark, Naylor


Actually, extending it down to 200+ apps doesn't bring in too many more;

Two from the fifties: Harry Baird (goalie) and Neil Myles (fullback)

Two from the sixties: Danny Hegan, Frank Brogan

More recently: Couñago, Murphy, Geraint Williams, Kiwomya, D'Avray

Jude Bellingham - nailed-on at 16?
at 19:02 17 Apr 2020

The Sun has it that there's a three-club race to sign him from Birmingham for £35 million, inc Man Utd.

He must be a massive standout talent, especially when you think of the various 16 year-olds that we've had in the last few years who seemed destined for great things and ended up on the treatment table or at Braintree. How many 16/17 year-olds can people think of who lived up to their earlier hype?
Garvan interview - interesting stuff.
