Thoughts on a forward plan for our club

Our club now has problems with EFL P&S rules due to gambling on achieving promotion. I understand and support why P&S rules were established due to many clubs over-reaching themselves and going into administration. HMRC were then rightly angry that football used the Football Creditors Rule to ensure that creditors such as players, former players, managers and other clubs were at the front of the creditors queue whilst they were at the back with suppliers, St John Ambulance etc, usually...

Thoughts after the Fans Forum

After the Fans Forum I was reflecting on the meeting itself, where the club is now and a few matters that fans might need to think about. First were my reflections on DC’s time at S6. The positives about DC’s running of SWFC for me are:

  • He has invested a significant amount money into the club both on infrastructure and playing staff, but more on the latter
  • He has instilled a sense of ambition into the club and fan base
  • He has developed...

Thoughts on the radio commentary situation

I didn’t want to have to write this on the eve of a new season. I thought we were just starting to build a positive ‘let’s have a go’ vibe around the team. But then the news broke about the radio commentary situation and the club response to it, and it angered me so much I had to say something that the Twitter limit on characters won’t allow for. So here goes.

I have many disagreements with BBC strategy, amongst my...

At the end of last season I was more confident than I was at the start but has that optimism survived the summer?

I said at the end of last season that I thought there might be a small number of arrivals and more departures from the squad in this window. I said we needed to move on Jones, Abdi, Westwood (only because we need the money and we have decent cover), Rhodes and Palmer if possible, to reduce the wage bill, lower the age of the squad and to reduce it in size. Well, we’ve manged to achieve one with another looking...

Steve and Paul go dewy-eyed for the days of sticking captions on pictures and flogging fanzines on street corners

Anyone happening to bob into the Tap Room of the New Barracks last Thursday evening might have been taken aback by the sight of two men old enough to know better sat at the big table and gurgling like the proverbial drains. And the reason? Because we were reuniting ourselves with the long-gone days of the paper version of War of the Monster Trucks.

Steve and I were very chuffed last week to find we had been selected for the filming...

When the close season comes too early and we're all chewing the carpet

Monday’s Star stares back sullenly from the table. Between August and the start of May I bloody love the Monday Star. Not just the report on the Wednesday match (a mixed blessing over 17/18) but all the other local stuff and all the weekend’s results and League tables. It usually lasts me for Monday night and a quick read over breakfast on Tuesday morning. But not today Zurg. It’s the close season.

It’s bad enough that the season has ended but...
