Wait & see if he’s any good but a very experienced keeper is not the ideal choice for a club that’s likely to be fighting to stay in the league.
I recommend Only Connect for some brain work too.
I think we all have our own opinions on that NI, maybe 98% of them very similar. Personally I’m much happier with the recruitment style this year. It would appear that the manager has had far more input than previously. No marquee signings but some solid performers at L2 level which were clearly needed, get the right keeper in and I might even become optimistic.
Which is fine until the manager is sacked a few months into the season and the new manager wants a whole load of new players!
Far more refugees claim asylum in other European countries than Britain.
Britain’s benefits are some of the worst in Europe.
In my mind, he always played with his head up, always looking for a pass. He wasn’t bad after the first leg break, I thought he came back well, but the second one was obviously just too much. Famously he is an airline pilot now, he’d be a brilliant guest for the podcast.
For me, Calvo-Garcia & Richard Kell will take some beating. Honourable mention for Ian Baraclough.
The greatest improvement I have made to my life was deciding to stop watching/listening to the news. I have a quick glance at the headlines once a day to see what the main stories are and that’s it. I don’t feel any less informed but I feel a lot less harassed by the endless news cycle.

Was impressed with the way O’Neill took his goal. Very Andy Keogh-like, and boy, could we do with a player like that again.
Good finish, helped in no small measure by looking to be well offside!
Borthwick Jackson came on at half time for them and still hasn’t found his level yet. Still got a way downward to go – maybe the Cods next.
I think he was at Oldham last season, so he’s on the way back up if he’s found his way to Burton?
also haven’t bought a program for years
And now you don’t have the opportunity to.
I’ve said for years that the club’s motto should always be to make it as easy as possible for people to part with their money and yet barriers always seem to be put up, from all-ticket games to queues to crap products.
Because the Government has recognised the political value of “us and them” arguments which brings unconditional support from the likes of BS. It has brought into power this corrupt and unaccountable Government.
I think that’s true but why has it had connected so closely with the electorate? There is only one conclusion you can draw.
How many do we normally sell? 1,000?
Just seen the Sunderland one – looks like the pictures haven’t downloaded properly.
How many of these do you think this country can take, maybe in your eyes, as many as they feel want to come!!!, our services are at breaking point with them, we do not have work, schools, hospitals, doctors or housing to take any bloody more!!!, and that is not evening proaching to subject of cash to keep them, just a little reminder that Britain is over two trillion in debt, which is increasing every week.
Immigration has a long-term benefit to the economy.
If you’re unhappy with the services provided in this country, take it up with your government which has consistently defunded them and run them down to breaking point. There’s plenty of money there, just look at how they’ve managed to siphon it all off to their mates during Covid. Why blame the poorest & most vulnerable people in society? Get angry with the government who endlessly lie to you and make your life worse. Christ, this government voted not to help poor UK children and then voted not to help poor foreign children! We have the worst benefits in western Europe even though we also have some of the lowest taxes and we have some of the worst depravation problems in western Europe. This in one of the richest countries in the world! Why do we stand for this? Why do we accept it? Why, as a country, are we so happy just to blame foreigners for our problems?
Andy Carroll is the wrong side of 30, on a free and injury prone.
Never seen him have a good game at Glanford Park though!
I am largely against the move to a “cashless society” for many reasons, not least because it excludes a lot of people who can’t get bank accounts/debit cards for whatever reason. Plus it leaves a trail – not ideal if you’re in an abusive relationship for example. It also makes it harder for charities to do bucket collections.
But, that said, I don’t think it’ll make a huge difference at GP. Indeed, it might make things quicker at the bar. Some big grounds have been using stadium cards for years where you can only pay for things with a top-up card (I think this doubles as your season ticket too), so it’s been coming.
I didn’t realise it had been voted on – just goes to show you can’t trust the public!
But regardless of the vote on the design, I’m still disappointed with the shades of “claret” and blue. Hopefully it’ll look better in person.
I was following Hampshire v Glamorgan on ESPNCRICINFO and would have loved to have seen the Hampshire innings, 18 fours and 12 sixes scoring 187 in 13 overs to qualify to the quarterfinals of the Blast, they needed to do it in 14 overs, but Livingstone is one big hitter and unlucky with the runout.
Lot of those games are streamed on YouTube Mick, looks like you watch the whole game here:

200 seems high to me given the state of things.
It’s a pretty desperate situation, another example of a club being completely failed by the Football League’s “regulation”, a club being ruined by its owner. How many more times do we have to see this sorry story before real change happens?
A squad of 23 and a few kids is great it’s a good number and we don’t need to be carrying 30 plus like we were last year.
23 is quite a long way away at the moment, given we have about 15 at present!
(did he play in the tin pot trophy??)
Interestingly, those games don’t count which, given the way the EFL likes to bang on about the cup giving youth players a better chance, is quite an admission of failure on their part!
Spence replacement – ?
Was the Spence replacement not Kenyon?
Don’t forget all these players that have left put us into the position we finished.
Very true but having some players is probably better than having so players, on balance?
Although it’s fair that literally no one would have been better than some of our players last season!
Squad ready by the end of May – another great example of over-promising.
So what do we have?
GK – Watson
RB – Millen
RB – Rowe
LB – O’Malley
CB – Onarise
CB – Taft
CB – Davis
RW – Green
LW – Hippolyte
CM – Hallam
CM – Beestin
CM – Kenyon
CF – Loft
CF – Jarvis
CF – Dunnwald-Turan
Plus a smattering of players so young they look like they’ve not yet started shaving.
I make that a squad of 15 established pros. 11 players, plus 4 subs.
No great loss but we’re not exactly spoiled for choice in any position. How many departures is that since last April?
A lovely fella, always a sunny face at parkrun. Even when he was volunteering there, he would jog up Kingsway to keep active. He’ll be much missed.
Are Bradford still doing their £100 season ticket from a few seasons back? If so maybe that’s a factor but signing quite a few half decent proven league two players up is probably the main reason.
Even if they were, that’s £100,000 for the 1,000 season tickets they’ve sold so far. We’d have to probably sell something like 300-350 in that time to make the same amount, reckon we have?
If Bradford have sold 10,000 season tickets as they claim, even at £100/ticket that’s £1 million right there.
I noticed Bradford sold 1,000 season tickets in 48 hours. I know they’re a big club for this division but I’d love to know how many we’ve sold in that time – or even overall!
