It's a big game - bragging rights go with it

Not sure I'd want to boast about beating Cambridge United, Paul.

John Compton
at 15:05 28 Sep 2021

Left Back John Compton aka Fred, as has been pointed out on another thread, is one of four survivors of the "...And we won the Football League" era (60 years ago this season). The others are Doug (Dixie) Moran, Ray Crawford and Andy Nelson.

Does any other oldie or nerd on here know why Compton left Town at the age of 26/7 and only played one more season of professional football?

Slightly disappointed
at 13:18 13 Aug 2021

P.C. “One of the things I don’t like is how every game gets scrutinised, the result gets scrutinised and the manager gets scrutinised.
“I don’t look into football like that, I just keep working hard on the training ground and the results and the performances will take care of themselves.”

I know that managers like to keep control of as many factors as they can, and that Cook would not be the only one to express dissatisfaction with questions such as "When will player X be fit?" Or: do you think that X is better suited to a 4-4-2? etc, etc.

But that putting of distance between any club and what the avid fan is doing all the time, such as arguing on here about the best 11 that could be fielded next Saturday is a defensiveness that I personally don't find endearing. If there's been a long period of slump and angst, then fine that a manager goes on the defensive, but it's not an attractive all-purpose stance to want to control the type of question that can be deemed answerable.

Players in England limited to 10 'higher force headers' a week in training
at 17:02 28 Jul 2021

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/57996593

Anybody read any more yet re how this could be made to work? As described, it drew my mind to that moment when you're playing 2/3 touch football and have to start screaming at a teammate to come and help you out because you've reached the limit.

Can a centre-half duck down, thereby conceding a chance, because he would have exceeded his quotient? All rather silly, I know, but it's a serious thing and probably something that can only really be achieved by just banning all headers in training - but then it becomes a different game.

No later to the new signings party than most

Just been looking at Watson's current summary of L1 INS and OUTS.

At a very quick count (loans included) L1 clubs for the coming season have signed 50 and discarded 216. Only 9 clubs have bought in more than our current two. Lots of ways of looking at that, but certainly our business is no more brisk nor sluggish than most.

Also, as most transactions are frees, those like ours which may involve substantial money for L1, are almost by definition going to take longer given that the Championship will be a live option for some of these.

However the cards eventually fall there are going to be a lot of unemployed footballers, with many taking a drop through the leagues to stay in the game.

Col Utd (featuring Gerkin, Smith, Chambers , Skuse, Judge and Sears) set to outshine Town’s new stars in a 3-1 defeat.

Don't know if you still do the Gazette, Phil, but, if you do, please spare us:
"We had something to prove says Captain Chambo" etc, etc
