Be interesting to see how McAuley and Smith cole with the big unit that is Matt Rhead.  Wonít have to worry about getting done for pace but will know they have been in a battle.

Thanks that re Wed afternoon.  Will check it out.

I saw that on BT last night Mac and thought thank heavens for that.  Then they went and spoilt it by saying they hoped to show it on tomorrow nights coverage of the Wrexham game !

Like you KES I have total faith in IC.  He has time again said what a strong committed group he has in the dressing room.  However you could tell in his interview he was seething.   He has thrown down the gauntlet to the players for Tuesday to show him that this was a blip.  Ok, we might not win every game  and getting beat is no shame but it is the manner of the defeat.   

Tuesday night is a big test for Players and Manager.   

Looking at the bench yesterday.  We went a keeper, a striker and 3 midfield players.  What can you do to shore up a leaky defence with a bench like that ?    Maybe the squad needs a certain amount of readjustment.

Will be interesting to see how IC deals with this ion Tuesday.   It shows what a massive step up this League is.  Not so much the bottom or indeed the middle but the top
Teams are going to take some living with.

I think we have to learn to deal with the physicality in this League.  There are som big units in most teams and we have to deal with that.  Will that mean a few changes of personnel as the season progress,  I feel sure that will happen.   The big man up top is a massive miss as it gives us the chance of getting it up to him and know it will stick, giving us a chance to play from further up the pitch.

Having conceded 9 in 3 games IC, Iím sure will be desperate to tighten that up. Has he got the options to do that at the moment, maybe not.   So he has to find away of protecting that soft underbelly, in the short term.

With the new lad in Will this mean a player out on loan from us ?    Two lads of course didnít even make the bench Tuesday night.

Nem donít see the new lad being a stop gap for McFadden.  It seems he is more a midfield player.  Maybe coming in to give Jarvís legs some rest.   Canít see any other midfield position we are short on numbers.

With this signing I guess the Chairman wonít be stating the club will be going pop anytime soon.   Certainly sends out all the wrong messages when you are after a hand out from the Government.

If, as SC is suggesting the Govt bail out money is now in doubt will we see a battening down of the hatches ?   I see Slough are down to 13 fit players and canít afford to bring the n extra bodies.  Lucky we have a 20 man squad to go with.

Does BT show a highlights programme for the midweek games, as they do for a Saturday ?

It does seem these wealthy Individual  Club owners are always looking for others to indulge them in their hobby.  I think as a Country we also need to very careful on the pressure that is placed on the public purse strings.

Looks to me that the Govt may be backtracking on the amount of money being given to The National League.  £1.6 million to the Arts, hundreds of millions to hospitality but the League can't even get £ 3 million a month! Shifting sands from either the DCMS or The Treasury DANGER

He was a Heggs player.  Use to deliver set piece crosses for those ladderless window cleaners.   :laughcry:

Think Solihull have a decent budget for this level..  On the subject of budgets.  Watching the Notts Co Altrincham game on BT.  The Magpies look a well decent side for this level.  The lad Roberts ( played against us for Blyth last season) looks a cut above anything on the park.

Itís good GC than you are still following the Team/Club despite your little fallout with the Chairman ( hereís hoping there is an olive branch somewhere along the line).   Hard habit to break, come rain or shine for many.

As for biggest/2nd biggest.   Club says biggest you say not the biggest.  Surely with the club being at its highest standard you would the deal would be one of, if not the biggest than something from past.
