  1. I reckon that there is enough credulity in the Star Citizen movement for it to become a major new religion like Mormonism or Scientology
  2. Please tell me you have stiffed the MK Franchise on Dele's sell-on fee!
  3. We had a massive target-man sized hole in our squad after selling Palmer for £300k, but we've managed to replace him with Sam Cosgrove, a loaner from Birmingham City who bought him for £1.5M! He was at Shrews for the first half of the season, seemed to fall out with everyone there and their fans seem to hate him. A massive shame we didn't get him before we played them in our last match as it would have been a great chance to prove a point! Permanent signings are experienced right back Lee Brown from Pompey, and Nathan Broome, a young (sweeper?) keeper from Stoke. Brown will help rid the squad of our U23-style naivaty and hopefully tighten us up at the back. Broome will be backup keeper but we'll need him in March as Tzanev will be away playing for the Kiwis (also he's done well so might get bids for him this summer). Earlier in the window we got Terry Ablade on loan, 20 year old striker. Promising but a bit easily knocked off the ball (like most of our team) at the moment to be the sole man up front. He'll be great in a couple of years though. Also on loan Tomas Kalinauskas, 21, a tricky winger but this is the one area where we have a surfeit, so a bit of a mystery. Not a bad window all in all, 1 out, 5 in (2 permanent), I think we've made a profit and strengthened some areas. The big question is whether Cosgrove will bring his Aberdeen or Shrewsbury form. That might determine our fate this season and whether we finally succumb to the financial gravity of the stadium debt.
  4. I don't get the difference between a 'cabaret' club (the Grand) and a 'cabaret club' (the Sunshine). They both just seem to be where men pay to talk to young women. The explanation went right over my head, except that a 'cabaret club' is the big new thing.
  5. Feels like 2 points dropped today against Shrews. That feeling of vulnerability when you have long periods of pressure with only a single goal to show for it. Still precariously only 1 point above relegation because Morecombe refuse to lose. Sounds like the new left back has strengthened the defence but we have a big target-man shaped hole in our squad. Fucking hell Sunderland!
  6. I had great fun in GTA Online, but it was only possible because one of my friends was willing to grind for money to buy the stupid properties which unlock the missions. Actually earning money is tedious in solo lobby, and ridiculously frustrating in a public one, by design to promote hark card sales. Level-based unlocks were another source of frustration, having to start a heist using a pop gun because you weren't allowed to buy rifles yet was another (although you can pick them up). The missions are a great lark though.
  7. They've got the cash to buy our top scorer last season and leave him on the bench. Not that I'm bitter or anything!
  8. Properly fucked. The wheels have come off the season since the pre-xmas cancellations. We can't score, we've sold one of our 3 players with no cover to a team TWO leagues below us (and he scored on his debut) leaving our team even younger and even smaller than it was. There's fucking rugby markings on our pitch to try and drum up some cash. Relegation is now probable.
  9. Looks like you got Ollie Palmer @Fatsam, see you in League 2 next season! https://wimbledonstatsblog.wordpress.com/2022/01/20/ollie-palmer-wimbledons-number-9/ Goals per game - with 1.87, without 0.64
  10. Nervy times in the relegation battle. We've gone up one position to 19th in the table after a draw at Burton, but are now only one point (and two games in hand) clear of the drop after Morecambe beat Wycombe. At least we have something a goal to save us from having 'corner of the month'.
  11. 0-0 versus Portsmouth, sounded like quite an even match. A useful point and another clean sheet, but that's four matches without scoring now. It's weird how our matches before Christmas were pretty high scoring, but we completely lost our rhythm after the two last minute postponements left us weeks without a match. Rumours going around that the bid for Ollie Palmer has been doubled,they knew it was a shitty offer!
  12. It is, but I think people are relieved it wasn't a fourth loss in a row. I only listened on iFollow but sounds like a decent performance apart from not converting anything.
  13. Couldn't quite get the winner against Morecombe, but at least we didn't lose to them and get dragged into the dropzone. Still a bit precarious though, but at least Woodyard and Palmer started.
  14. I'd hate to think what the average age of our squad would be without Palmer and Woodyard, probably not old enough to buy their post match fags! I can't see us selling unless the offer is very much improved, we're not actually in financial trouble, just having to control costs for a few years until the dust from move settles. Edit: Plus the buyer being a known moneybags should inflate the price even more
  15. I wouldn't blame Wrexham for trying to buy him, but I would blame our board for selling him. Centre forward is one of the two positions where we have no cover. I would say we've got about 20% chance of being relegated with him and 80% if he goes. I've seen the cost of relegation quoted as about £400k, so £180k is nowhere near enough even if he is in the final year of his contract. Another problem is if he has been personally offered loads and his head has been turned and performances drop. Regarding financial controls, I think a 50+1 rule would make a lot of sense preventing owners from asset stripping or running clubs into the ground. It wouldn't stop well subsidised teams poaching players though, but we can't really complain too loudly as there were complaints from the other Combined Counties teams when we were reformed in tier 9 with a pre-built fanbase. Our dedication to being fans owned is definitely costing us money (and therefore competitiveness) now though. We only just managed to get New Plough Lane (I mean the Cherry Red Records Fan's Stadium) built and avoid being groundless a second time. That would have killed the club. Meanwhile some wag has said Woodyard was going to you as well, and updated Wikipedia to show that! This did not go down well.
  16. It should be illegal! They are called the MK Franchise He might not have been so keen if he was a Boreham Wood!
  17. Fucking hell, a bid for our top scorer comes in from a team two leagues below. It's shit being skint. I know Wrexham have got Hollywood money but for fuck's sake. @Fatsam we are going to fall out!
  18. Boreham Wood was the Saturday match, the MK Franchise was our Tuesday night fixture involving the weird banner. I went to the former but fuck entering the belly of the beast.
  19. It was at their modern but empty stadium actually, but sickening all the less. Hardly any of our fans go because they don't want to give them any money. The home fans had pathetic little red and white plastic flags like it was a champions league match for them and a goady banner saying "the club that will never die"! Fucking cheek. We actually played a lot better than our recent matches, except for a 10 minute spell of madness where we were trying be be too cute passing around our goal and gifted them the ball which lead to their goal, and then got a red card for a second foul when in headless chicken mode. Even with 10 men we looked ok, albeit understandably stretched. The ref gave us nothing all match though, how you could be sympathetic to that lot I have no idea. Properly in a relegation battle now.
  20. Saturday was miserable. Partly because of Boreham Wood's facilities - uncovered terraces, rain, strong icy winds, limited view, but all of that would have been fine if we'd got a result. First half we set up with a back three incorporating only one centre back, the other two didn't really know who they were meant to be covering most of the time. Second half we brought on a second centre back (back from injury), looked better but just crossed 100 balls into the box that their towering, well-drilled back 5 could easily clear ahead of our slender young whippets. The difference in height and strength between the teams was massive; our youth-first policy creates some nice football sometimes but others we just get bullied off the ball. On top of that, it's a really bad time to have a slump in form because we're playing the club-stealing Milton Keynes Franchise tomorrow.
  21. Cold, wet, losing to a team 2 leagues below us. Double shit & piss chips.
  22. Are you fighting online Julianas? Humans are much much tougher than the AI. Try setting it to Friends Only.
  23. Fuck me that was very very bad. At least I heard a new song "we've had a shot", sung in the 82nd minute.
  24. This is our first match for 18 days so glad it seems to be taking place at Oxford. It's one of my nearest away matches but I hate going there. This time the 3 sided stadium will come into it's own as it lets in lots of fresh air.
