The squad is full of committed guys who will keep going. What this means is our heads won’t drop at 2-0 down. If we don’t supplement the squad with some flair and attacking prowess then its going to be a struggle.
Pitch looks to be a bit mottled and will be threadbare fairly soon. The region is blessed with the best turf in the land but no doubt Swann acquired some during his wilko shelf stacking days 😂
last pre-season went quite well. Some
who played well ended up being wage thieves/donkeys. One would hope that now a footballing man is making footballing decisions that we take some optimism into the league season and we can get to a solid mid table position.
Don’t forget Swann said ‘he started to run the channels well’ just before he was injured so I would expect him to be around for a while yet, those channels won’t be the same without him
Let’s pray its you NI

I don’t know why but something inside is screaming George Miller…..
Bunn looks a good acquisition
My thinking would be if we had sold 750 I would publicise a push to a 1,000. The fact that the club is not naming any figures would make that unlikely. I hope it is near the 750 mark but we this season appears to be a holding pattern prior to liquidation.
And how many ‘fans not customers’ are left do you reckon? With the current wrecking ball management probably around half what we would expect. They’ve done nothing to entice people back – it’s almost as if they have other plans for the football club
Pure coincidence fans forum comes out just before press release transfer embargo (club didn’t bother breaking the news).
Part of conditions maybe to assure fans about the viability of the club and getting a voice?
Highly unlikely that the vice like grip will be loosened.
Kind of like applying for the Diversity Officer’s role in the Third Reich
understand it is more about the EFL loan due to COVID, relatively few took it and now conditions on transfers – free agents and loans OK but cannot buy and wages need to be reasonable (whatever that means)
This is my take so maybe not exactly spot on. Whatever it is we are one of 3 clubs in the league who are under it (Oldham Swindon)
I fear it will only be speculation and the truth may never come out. Possibly the stadium naming rights, the transfer of assets, some loan arrangement with Coolsilk. Whatever it is its just another sad mark on the history of the club,
If we cannot bring anybody in (and I don’t know the details behind it) then we are relegated.
Time for a statement from the club
It does feel like a team aiming for a 0-0. We still have no attacking competency in the club and a couple of positive players in the club would help. Cox said Millen likes to get forward – but to what? A lone striker who can’t control a football!
I think the fans will be to blame no matter what, when the COVID train finally runs out of steam
I agree that Morecambe isn’t the best example I just happened across their ticket sales and how they discount the tickets the more they sell and thought that is so far away from our set up.

Can’t we close this thread down and start to fall out about mask wearing please?
Sales ate clearly dire otherwise you would use the data to generate more interest. I can see our attendances being low compared to others and Cox with his tactics and no decent strikers in the club coupled with the chairman’s view that this young squad will be great 3 years into a 1 year contract just makes this club more of a laughing stock.
Morecambe sold over 1000 so would be interesting to see where we are compared to them
Looking through the postings on the boards of other clubs you will see that even amongst the weeping, wailing and gnashing of teeth of those with lowly league positions and ones who were relegated – there are still a few little lights in the darkness to be observed.
We do not. We have zilch.
Are we now the most toxic of all league clubs? Has the message run through the leagues like wildfire – “Sign for anybody you fancy – but don’t touch Scunny with a barge pole?”
BTW, I missed the chairman on RH. I must assume that he will have said at least a few things to lift the hearts of supporters.
He didn’t say anything to lift supporters. Basically talked about Jem and that he should not have said those things, bascially blamed him for the run of bad results after he came out and derided some of his fellow pros for not trying – same as Cox did – blamed COVID – and more importantly continued the narrative of ‘my main aim is to keep the football club alive…’ The narrative being set for the club to be close to being non-existent – if we look at all those other clubs that went under and the narrative of the chairmen in charge at the time it looks to be following the same playbook – now this could be entirely coincidental and everything behind the scenes is far from desperate but we are where we are for a reason.
Hope you’re right WG but this feels like a well trodden route that seldom works.
UTI – what do you think gave Beestin the licence to press forward to put chances away? It certainly wasn’t Spence – Cox doesn’t see them working together at all – in fact I think he’s quite ambivalent with Spence (hence the new signing)
Karacan marshalling the back 4 and sitting in front of them Beestin became more assured to press forward. But that really wasn’t the agenda you were going for was it……
Hippolyte is not a league standard footballer – far from it, like most of the squad.
How did they entice the two we signed? By saying we’ve got ‘f’ all chance of scoring. The worst forward line in the division and now no creativity in the squad with the exception of sicknote Hallam.June 29, 2021 at 12:20 pm in reply to: For the first time in my life I am jealous of the Cods #209393
They have the ‘new owner’ bounce which always help with the positivity.
who would have thought a club could attract interest in a new owner – I thought we had to be grateful for the Swannlioni’s because nobody ever buys lower league clubs any more.
Another defensive coach, meh
Morecambe have released a statement about having sold over 1,000 season tickets. For a club the size of Morecambe that is a good achievement.
From what I understand the more tickets sold the more money off the season tickets for everyone.
I think we all know more about every other clubs activities than ours.
We’ll see what the next week or two bring.
No more players in and Swann is without doubt running the club into the ground to develop. The terms of the lease would presumably only be valid should the club exist.
The last day in the diary for at least one signing would be 1st July. Contracts expired and free agents so maybe Swann meant this date rather than promising and not delivering – although his tenure is full of empty promises and fall outs. Let’s see what Thursday brings – nothing in before then with preseason games starting less than 1 week after would make a mockery of his continued whine about last season’s first 10 games being our pre-season.
The squad will not be able to fulfil its fixtures very early into next season without at least 5 signings.
The squad isn’t good enough for NL north
Agree with the signings still needed. The lack of any snippets of info about incomings is worrying
checking the link for league two transfers; we’re one of about 4 clubs to get one or less in. The issue is the other clubs are already doing well or like Rochdale have come from league one however none of these clubs has seen a released list like ours.
Whatever way you look at it we are in a pool of one of clubs in the shit.
