Does anyone know how the transfer window works - can we expect to see 1 or 2 additions tomorrow or is it more likely to be for Southend?

Ha ha if we have anyone by Southend Iíll be surprised! Get a few unknowns in a week before the deadline, thatíll do fine

Doing my best to remain positive about tomorrow, Wigan haven't scored for two games so maybe we can grind out a 0-0?  Grin

Wigan will bang in a minimum 5...no way will we be able to contain them...they have payed two decent teams who have managed to hold them...we crumble as soon as any concerted pressure is applied.

Early goals will get the crowd riled up and the spineless players will all shirk any responsibility (bar JJOT who will probably get sent off) JFH will blame the crowd for booing citing that we were playing the league leaders so what do we expect.

Crackers & Ivan will not celebrate if/when they score...

We are not too far away from safety, but you should be able to see fight within the team, if your gonna get out of trouble. Most of these clowns couldn't give a toss!

At least Pemberton has had an impact on tightening up the defence  Roll Eyes

Kin' shambles from top to bottom...complete silence from KT/Chinese also very frustrating...

Whole club directionless.

HAPPY NEW YEAR FELLOW COBBLERS!  Grin

Tbf if they did come out and say we're gonna spend big then it wouldn't be a great move would It? Bump the prices up of everyone immediately.

I get the joke though.

Cheers Neil
Happy new year
My one wish for 2018 is that as part of the education programme that 5usport are so keen on furthering due to their link up with ntfc actually includes English lessons.
In all honesty though,things arenít right
A fanfare regards a takeover and not a peep out of the new owners since.
At best it shows total contempt for the paying fan base at worst things are more than a little worrying.

Whilst the current squad has serious short comings I donít think it needs much to transform it. The biggest requirement in my eyes is a leader on the pitch. Add to this some width and pace and we could see a remarkable transformation. Everyone could see that the squad had issues from the start. Thinking back a lot of us were concerned about how long it took to bring this squad together initially. For me this indicated 2 possible reasons. The first was that JE was unable to attract his first choice players to the club. Therefore some we ended up with could be option B, C or possibly D. The second was that the brakes were possibly put on recruitment due to the arrival of our investors? This would have thrown any plans into disarray and resulted in quick ill thoughtout changes of plan? Many have drew comparisons with the past, but the truth is that the transfer window has added a dynamic that wasnít there in years gone by. Get recruitment wrong and you have to live with the consequences for half a season, and donít we know it. Whatever the reasons all I know is we have one more round of business and thatís it, because come May, weíll be down without some creative recruitment. IMO there is some undoubted talent in this squad, but due to the glaring short comings it is often being asked to play with one leg tied behind its back. The players we bring in need experience, steel and pace. Iíve held off asking for a striker with 20 goals as getting that in January is akin to winning the lottery. Realistically no chance, but with the right players coming in, perhaps not as vital as we think hopefully? This is not the worst squad in terms of talent we have had at the club by a long long way and JFH is not the worst manager. What it is is the most unbalanced illogical squad ever to grace our dressing room. Given the opportunity we had at the start of the season that is scandalous, and itís unlikely that JE is solely to blame for that.

Interesting selection from JFH. Smith in for Buchanan is long overdue. Taylor takes the captaincy for the first time in a league game. Powell returns to the XI, with O'Toole making way.

At 6/1 we're the longest price home team on the coupon. Reminds me of many years ago we were around the bottom of the third tier away at Bristol City and were 13/2. We won 3-1 that day.

I've wasted a couple of quid on 2 nil at 40/1 and 2-1 at 20s.

You watch, we'll win 3-1.....
