I'm hearing Jordan Thewlis currently at Alfreton is on the wish list. 17 goals in the league last season albeit 6 penalties. Old Boston player I recall. Along with defender Adam Lund also Alfreton.
Andrew Boyce currently Scunthorpe United. Pretty sure he's been with us before?

Just watched AL 15min interview after the Sports game.   Interesting insight into what the hopes are for next season.  Has a hit list drawn up for  who he wants in for next season.

Puts a bit more meat on the bone to the mess inherited when he entered the building earlier in the season.  Was very critical Of the standard recruitments last summer.  I guess the likes of Bartley, Clifford,Oke, Smith, Spence etc could fall into that category.    Who was actually behind last summerís new signings ?

To me the one glaring mistake in recruitment terms was Mark Hughes being appointment by Stephen Cleeve.  The rest followed behind that.

Well yes, BUT.....

If he didn't have the money for anything better at the time, what was he supposed to do?

No secret what Club finances were like when he decided to give the job to Hughes, and also in fairness to Hughes, that would also have hindered his recruitment.

Things then improved with finances and AL coming in.

A question is if Joe's money was just used to get us to the end of the season (I seem to remember the Chairman saying that 300k was needed to do that  :dontknow:), or if are there surplus funds for AL to use on his shopping list for next season.  :dontknow:

Perhaps the mysterious Joe has a magic money tree?

I would like to take some cuttings from the magic money tree

At this rate we'll end up closer to the play offs than the drop zone. Top four form at the moment. Wonderful to see

I'm surprised you have the audacity to even ask the question. Hang your head in shame. I guess they're on their way to Aldershot :banghead;

King's Lynn Town and Darlington. Can we recover to avoid the drop?

I don't think Southend will announce Crowther until Friday at 5 to 5. Only the grey haired fans will get that one :laughcry:

The strange thing is they hadn't even reached a top 7 play off position until the very last day of the season. When a team is in form they're in form I guess*, but they were excellent on the day.
I do wonder historically how teams have fared in the higher division when getting promoted via play offs from such a lowly league position

* We were in form also

Watch the video and see that Ben swept the Curzon player off his feet while sitting on the ground. Maybe retaliation by Ben for something but it was at least a Yellow but harsh Red.
The above sounds like violent conduct which is a straight red!

Unless you're Ruben Dias

Poor kick off time for any travelling fans from either Alfreton or Kidderminster. These league officials don't give these events too much thought.

I don't know if he located himself in and around King's Lynn or whether he lives down south and Aldershot is a much better location. It's ironic but there is, of course, the possibility of Aldershot getting relegated and us getting promoted. Be funny if that happened. Hilarious even.

Glass half full attitude? The play-offs are more exciting than straight promotion. Two extra games to look forward to.

I think the computer says "no" really

13 points from 10 games is well above our average this year so very unlikely imho

Mick  Maybe your computer is right Well done

It's not so good. It didn't predict us beating Halifax  :dontknow:  We're more likely to be clearer ahead of Aldershot end of season after that result. Our survival hinges on The Shots shotting out
