 :oldman" :farmer:  Nice to see GASHY has found a nice local club close to his home . I feel he is better than the level he is going to be playing at , but he has been there, done it and collected the medals too prove it. Peterborough North Stars gain in a big way.  Good luck GASHY and thanks for the memories, you will always be welcome at KLTFC and hopefully we will get to see you again soon. :oldman" :farmer:

Yes, Good luck to MG at PNS, and thanks for the good times.  Here is a chance now for our team to join the modern game, a game that the most successful teams often have no Centre Forward, particularly not a Big One, and especially like the old days, a Big One with No Teeth !  Fluidity is now the benchmark, as we saw too often from opponents in the season just finished.  The former Striker method was OK in FA Cup ties on horrendously muddy pitches.  The approaching In/Out flux of players should be very interesting.

Disappointed Chris Smith has gone.  But changing times.  I thought he was a good player, and it will be interesting to see where he ends up.

Somewhere where he can complete his BEng (Hons) degree to Loughborough University.

Def improved while with the Linnets, but IMHO, not quite quick enough or tall enough for what we need at centre half

Chris Smith did a decent enough job for us at NLN.  Thought last season he was a little light weight and could be bullied by strikers at NL.  Was prone to the odd Fau Paux when overplaying.

Wish the lad well.  He was a big part of getting the Club promoted to step 1. 

I guess now June is here we will see some action in the transfer front with Clubs starting to put squads together etc.

Exciting times

No offence to MG or RJ, but I think we should not try to replace them with like for like.  Their leaving gives us an opportunity fora quicker, more fluent team, to cope better with the quick and slippery players that this league has in abundance.  It was them who caused our numerous defeats, in general.  We all favour different styles, but all I hope to see this season is opponents trying to keep us at bay, rather than the other way round !

Dilly, that big one with no teeth.  I think I saw her sitting at the bar down the pub tonight.  She asked to be remembered to you.  She had ‘Love’ tattooed on the knuckles of one hand  with ‘HAT’ tattled on the knuckles of the other.  She was missing a finger.  :cheers:

Morning all, and thanks to KES and Mall for the info about the person sitting at the bar.  She sounds like exactly the Centre-half you’re looking for.  If not, perhaps she has a brother of the same ilk - maybe a Spitfire tattooed on his forehead !…. I take the point that Coleman replaces RJ, but I must admit, I didn’t really notice him on the streaming last season.  I hope he’s quicker than Jarv.  My main concern at the mo is all these friendlies lined up, good ones for a change, but at the moment we have the same team that struggled so much last season.  Not long to go, and new signings essential, but time is moving on at a pace.  Any knowledge out there that I don’t have ?

Signings imminent according to the end of the piece above (all presumably with " 'ARD " tattooed on their foreheads Dilly :laughcry:)
