Thought we had new groundsman

May have a new groundsman but he is no good without a mower!  Is he grazing on the pitch to keep it short?  :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry:
"If a window was broken or a drain was blocked up, someone was certain to say that Grissles had come in the night and done it, and when the key of the store-shed was lost, the whole farm was convinced that Grissles had thrown it down the well. Curiously enough, they went on believing this even after

Just heard that the club have asked if all fans can turn up early on Tuesday and bring a pair of scissors with them,and a tape measure, regulations state grass must be no shorter than 2cm and no longer than 4cm? :welcome:

Trust is not there to provide a foot up for private enterprise, which is what the club is at the moment, if the trust had shares in the club it would be different. As it is the club has already got a fundraising body in the shape of the Friends of the Linnets, they provided a new mower last year, is it beyond repair already? Maybe a word with last week's sponsor, Masons mowers?  :dontknow:

Can we have your report on yeterdays game Turtle, until we reed some views from people that were actually there how can we comment on a game,be it positive or negative? It is only when we see a game or have a first hand report that we can comment,if we win Tuesdy night I presume the players will be lapping up the applause,but but if we lose don't expect so much applause! But this thread is about precisely what it says in the title,the PITCH, but you took it upon yourself to try and heap more scorn on the trust for not helping a private business! I friend of mine runs his own building company,recently his cement mixer broke down,do you think that the trust should help him out and but a new one? Amuses me that people come onto a forum funded by the trust to once again have a dig at said trust!!! :banghead; :banghead; :banghead;

Thankfully Lappin and Holt will return the forum to commenting on football issues and not mundane things like food, dishwashers and glasses! Instead of knocking Cleave and Culverhouse they should be congratulated on their ambition and commitment to the club. Their vision for the future must be unrivalled at this level, with the exception of Billericay , everything so positive.

I am sure that Holt and Lappin signing's will create plenty of comment on the forum going forward.

To kick it off.... what are people expecting ?   Both have played Premiership football ( Lappin a few games)  but both have not had any Football action for a good while, Lappin also coming back from a bad injury.  Will The temptation be to get them straight in the team or will they get a few games with Backie to get themselves back up to match fitness ?

I just hope that if they are put straight into the action that they are match fit enough to do themselves justice. 

Lets not forget we have had the likes of  JJ, Such, and Andy Johnson with us in the not to do distant past, none of which pulled up any trees.

Yet you have happily posted that they won't fail.  I HOPE they don't but there are no guarantees how former full-time players age / will adjust to the step down / recover from injury without the support of a professional backroom (delete as applicable).  Personally I think Lappin will have more to offer if he can get himself match fit although playing him and Jarvis in the same side might prove a bit harder but happy that there is now potential cover in that role, also if Lappin can also do some coaching there are now plenty in the squad who are still young enough to benefit (as we have already seen with the difference IC has made to many).

Tony, there was me thinking you were a smart cookie  :laughcry: ( Im sure you are)  The reason I believe they wont fail is one reason and one reason only..... Ian Culverhouse.  They guy comes from a pro background and is used to dealing with Pro's.  he will know when a player is trying it on and wont be swayed by reputation.   SC has given him the tools ( budget) to do the job would he put it at risk ?  He must believe what he  is signing is 2 players who can still do it

Surely Adam that was the target at the start of the season.  Nothing has changed.  All that's happened is The Chairman has given the main man more tools to make it happen.   Reach for the Moon, if you miss it you will hopefully land amongst the Stars.

Be interesting to see how crazy the online  ticket sales have gone today.
