General Discussion / Re: Squad

I guess playing a low defensive line would help negate the lack of pace.
I'm very keen to see how we play next season, TW/HL obviously played relegation tactics and put square pegs in round holes. I'd like to know how they'd approach a season where presumably promotion is the goal

Great news. It certainly seemed probable when Southend loaned him out/released him

Just seen that Norwich have released Aston Oxborough, Norfolk born goalkeeper who I believe was at Wealdstone last year

So KL now have a CEO. :welcome: he spoke briefly on Radio Norfolk this morning but didn't really say any more than what has already been published, also dodged the fulltime/part time question

General Discussion / Re: Is TW the right man

How good really is Tommy Widrington and is he the right man for next season. In Tommyís 27 league games we got 26 points. That is 0.9629 points per game on average. Based on that, if he had been here all season, we would have got 42.37 points, so ok under what Aldershot got. Would we have still been relegated? Well maybe, maybe not, Iím just pointing out that his 27 league games (result wise) were not overly impressive.
The one thing that i would question is why he didnít bring in a goal scorer. Had he have done so, we may have gained that extra place and avoided relegation. Next season will be against teams of a lower quality than we faced this season, so how will we judge him. A lot of people are expecting us to at least be in the play offs and some even think we will win the NLN. Tommy will obviously want to win it, so good luck to him, I just hope he can find a better strike partnership.

Whilst stats don't cover this, I think it's worth noting that TW didn't have a pre season, and he had to instill a polar opposite playing style to the team. He also seemed to get GO and ML scoring.
I'm not sure how he will approach the NLN, we surely don't want to go in with an inferiority complex and backs to the wall

Golds scored alot of his career goals under TW and is contracted for another season I believe, also entering his prime years. Barrett I think has another year too.
I'd assume Coulson is surplus to requirements at Southend, he nor Jones aren't getting any younger and have the experience the squad lacks.
I don't think King will play again, not sure about McFadden but hopefully he gets back to fitness.
The others I too would like to stay.
Gyasi being loaned out because for developments sake or to get rid?

I wonder what system/formation we will go with next season.

Most Football clubs at this level struggle financially.  The gates won't pay anywhere near the cost of running a club. 

I can't see why not, with all these ex League players only wanting £400 a week!

These ex league players could earn more at the Subway down the road

Gold is allegedly on 900 a week? :bankrupt:

32% of his career goals(10years) have come under TW

So Aldershot realistically need 4 points from their remaining 6 fixtures starting with Solihul Moors, then Bromley, Notts Co, Maidenhead, Halifax and Wealdstone. Fingers crossed the 3 big sides do what's expected, so then 4 points from 3 games.

We obviously have 4 games left. The 3 after Dagenham have little to play for in their seasons
Can only hope that we get 3pts tomorrow(and hope Morias doesn't pull our trousers down) a tonne of confidence, and that the remaining 3 have eyes on their summer holidays.

I added Widdrington due to his relationship, and perhaps he'd be effective a division down?
Very good points Tony, my initial post was somewhat hasty and vague.
I'd forgotten that JB and GO were on another year too, 9 and 10 for next season already sorted then? Clunan as the '8'.

Assuming we are down a division next season, who would you opt to retain if it were up to you?
For me it's both Jones, Clunan, Barrows, Widdrington, Mcfadden (assuming he's fit enough to play) and Barrett (if he stays) off top of my head

After Halifax I too would be wanting nothing less than a win against bottom place. Get a little run going and give Aldershot something else to worry about

I had a look at  Aldershots fan forum and it's pretty doom and gloom, they feel that they've thrown in the towel already.

For what it's worth, Aldershot have lost their last 5 and only managed to score once
