Bit worried about the youth team at the moment. I know a couple of them are involved with the first team so they've lost a few players but I don't think they've won a game all season that I can remember. Convincingly beaten 3-0 tonight by Bradford in the FA youth Cup first round.
There was that piece on here recently that mentioned we have a few more coming through but seems like the current scholars are really struggling, might not see any offered deals at the end of the year.
Does anyone go to games?

Despite conceding two and going behind twice, I think tonight was a big test of our character and ability to play this new system under pressure. We stuck to our guns and it paid off as we had far too much for them in the end, despite a battling performance for most of the game from them. Their two goals were a direct result of a slip and a moment of madness.
In the two games I’ve seen so far the biggest positive has been Camps. He has been like a new signing and is finally looking like he might fulfil that potential. I think he will be class for us this season.
Unfortunately for me, and I know it was on only his first game, but Magloire looks miles off to me. Yes he is quick but he isn’t confident on the ball and doesn’t fit in with the style of play we are promoting this season. On tonight’s evidence he would cost us goals this season and o’connell needs to play when he’s fit. A tad worrying for me that he wasn’t in the squad today.

Can we now do away with this fallacy that Davies knows where the back of the net is because I've seen him touch the ball three times today, twice it's bounced off him and the other to pass tamely into the keeper's arms from the spot. He offers nothing and is a shadow of the player from last season. Hopefully in the second half he can come off and we can have 11v11.
I'm not scapegoating him but I just don't get why anybody can think he deserves a starting place when he's been awful all season.

Anyone know anything about this? Saw Pete Vincenti tweet about it.. Deon Burton's set up a new academy in the midlands with links to us. Good to see the club linking up with even more ways to get talented youngsters into the club. If anyone can uncover a gem that's been missed by everyone else along the way then it's us.

Signs for Billericay Town. Shame, him and bury would've been a good fit.

We would probably be challenging for 2nd. So difficult when even at home you're having to score 4 to win a game.
Our forward play tonight was fantastic, could've finished 5-2 to either side. Need to pull out all the stops to try and keep mendez at the club. Vincenti looks like the vincenti of old now that he has a bit more match fitness. Their goals all came giftwrapped. Logan made a couple of decent saves but thought his decision making was awful at times.
They were awful in every sense. Their number 9 and goalkeeper were a disgrace.

Won again today 5-0. Some run of form they're on now, think the've scored 4+ in their last 3 games, including the 4-0 against the 'best group of young players in the country' at bury.
I know we know this already, but the future does look bright

It's that time again, downloaded the beta last night and I know you're always keen for input Chaff so I thought I'd jump straight in before invited (if you don't still do it i apologise but I'm sure you will)
So, firstly, I reckon Morley's ability and potential from what I can see on his reports seem a bit low. He doesn't even have 5 black star potential which seems harsh given what's been said about him in interviews and the snippets that we have seen of him so far! Don't know when you submitted the data though could've been before all of that.
Also, I think that Bunney should have a higher crossing/corners rating as he has proven his quality in that area at the very least, he obviously needs to be playing well consistently to make him any good on the game a few good performances doesn't make him a world beater from what he was previously. Also think that his tackling has improved to be better than the '2' that he has on the game currently!! Although I'm not saying that it should be good by any stretch but maybe not THAT bad!
Other little things like I know we employ a sports scientist and a data analyst and now that these roles are in the game can we not have those staff members in them?
Sorry if I'm jumping the gun here but thought I'd go for it!

Hill's reaction to the fans after our equaliser today is the final straw for me. Dunno if it's still at the point where I'll get slagged off for this but an own goal / straight from the corner / whatever it was does not justify 90 minutes of absolute sludge nor does it make me feel any better about the season ahead. We needed to win today to bring the fans back onside and I've always defended Hill because of what he's done for the club, don't get me wrong we have come a long, long way under his management but for me he can go after his reaction to the fans today.
Turning round and giving it both barrels to the crowd after we've scored because they had a go after sending Logan back into his goal is unacceptable, he had no other thought in his mind after that goal other than getting one over on those paying fans. The first time in my life that I've actually been angrier after we've scored a goal and if a manager can do that then it's not a good show. Looking very grim after that performance.
|Fantastic second half|
at 17:12 27 Feb 2016
The less said about the first half the better for me, couldn't keep hold of the ball and I was just amaze that we got to the second half with the score at 0-0, Lillis made some important saves.
2 subs at half time worked an absolute treat. Much better, we looked in the ascendancy towards the end and special mention for Holt who had them by the scruff of the neck. Masterclass of how to turn a game round and then see it out in the last 10 minutes.
Their fans were tossers.

Starts at 'first team squad' macc... Lillis not in squad.
(probably means nothing)

I see that the players are on their way / arrived for the pre season camp.
Does anyone know who's travelled / trialists etc?

Released by Barnsley. I'm sure Whitey will have all the info but sounds like another potential broken toy to me. I know we've just signed another forward but I remember this guy playing against us in his Tranmere days and thinking what a player, made the classic mistake of going to a massive club where he was never going to play.
Bags of potential! Reckon Keith's got his eye on him? or would he be out of our reach wage wise?

Seem to have imploded in recent weeks, conceded 10 goals in 3 games! I've noticed that Diba hasn't been in goal for those 3 games, is he injured?

An embarrassing, horrible, nasty team port Vale were. Yet another team in this league that I'd hate to support. Scoring in the last minute was all the sweeter. They all looked gutted and every one of them deserved it.

Blimey, all I said, politely, was that focus was needed on football at the moment rather than Herbalife.
His form has declined massively and his social media presence is dominated by some pyramid scheme. I know that obviously footballers are allowed a life away from football but it makes it look as though that's all he's interested in as his form dwindles.

Offered pro terms, no one else from youth team
