The period of time between the end of one and beginning of a new season seems to get ever shorter? Maybe a figment of my imagination but it would be interesting to see a trend from say the 1960's to present day...................I'll bet there is a very significant shortening of the off season?

If we had a big name coming in, some fans would be rubbing their hands at the thought, others would be asking how we can afford that ? 

In truth we have had big names in before.... Joachim, Andy Johnson, Daryl Such to name just 3.    Would any one think that was ever money well spent ?

Big names = big money = big sponsorship and as you say Mallard we have had so called big names in the past who failed miserably to live up to the hype and their reputation.

Since Jack for me the only one who delivered what was promised was Dunkley............George and how we miss him, was an attacking midfielder?

It is shame and just goes to show that all is sometimes not what it seems. I thought they were a well run club with an excellent youth development set up.

Too early to make predictions IMO......Let's see if it all comes together ahead of the big kick off,,,,,Squad, sponsorship etc etc

I wish him well - he deserves loads of regular game time afer his long injury lay off.

I can't remember Gillies, anybody know why his stay was so brief last time ?

I recall the name but did not see him play...What sort of level are Chatteris / Kershaw? Similar to our reserves?

Surely a passing game would best suit a pitch of maximum width?

Good news for obvious reasons but in reality, using the George Thomson situation when he left us for Chester. Unless there is is a clause in the contract that is legally binding in respect of transfer fee expectation and perhaps a sell on fee, is there really any point? Or am I missing something?

Makes sense - bit closer to home?

Always gave 100% and as I have posted previously his versatility probably worked against him establishing himself in his best position, which is???
