    So yet another big earner moves on with the departure of James Hanson. The only real surprise there was that this didn’t happen at the same time as the others. Perhaps Wally felt that a fully fit Hanson still had something to offer, and didn’t want to let him go without a suitable replacement. So does that mean we can expect a new signing sometime…[Read more]

    A positive start to the close season with Will Nightingale signing a new contract and the arrival of Nesta Guinness-Walker. This would never had happened so quickly under Neal Ardley would it?

    Keeping Will is a statement of commitment. He’s in the prime of his career how and has showed us he can make it at this level after a couple of injury…[Read more]

    Devon it has been reported in the papers about Hodges and Gillingham:

    I can’t really see it happening personally.

    Judging by the number of Seddon related “love fest” posts on the OS, I’d say he is looking for a contract next season. Cynical? Moi?

    Never in doubt? Even the born optimist would have looked at the team 10 points adrift in February and with an inferior goal difference to all around them and thought, they’re a gonna.

    You have to admire the squad and management team for getting us out of this mess. To survive on goal difference when our own goal difference is so bad, speaks…[Read more]

    Only a win against Accy will make me think the great escape is on. Lose that game, and we’re right back in the steamy smelly stuff. If results go our way, and only the Walsall v Oxford game looks dodgy, we could be out of the bottom four. A win on Saturday and five points from the Wycombe, Oxford, and Bristol games, and we’re on the mystical 50…[Read more]

    When we went 1-0 up on Saturday, it seemed to me out game plan changed. We sat back and let them come to us. If that was the intended tactic, it failed miserably.

    Ramsdale’s mistake was the game changer, something he immediately acknowledged. He held his hand up to the players and importantly to the fans. Respect! Even after the Giils equaliser,…[Read more]

    Well Windlesham. We did outplay Charlton for 45 minutes, but to win a game of football you need to do that for the full 90. Unfortunately we didn’t do that.

    The warning signs were there in the first half. We were especially prone to issues when Charlton spread the ball wide. I lost count of the number of times our full backs (and especially poor…[Read more]

    Well. Where did that win come from? A win is a win, but now that the initial euphoria has subsided, I can’t help feeling that it just delays the inevitable. We conceded three goals, two of which were virtually immediately after scoring ourselves, and one straight from the KO. Such defending shows defensive and mental frailty. OK we scored one more…[Read more]

    Talking to some Millwall fans after the game, they think we were the better team. Personally I’m fed up with hearing that this season. We’re defensively OKish. In midfield we’re OKish on our day, but it depends who plasy there. Up front we’re severely lacking at best.

    Yes it could have been different if Piggott had scored in the first minute…[Read more]

    Singapore. I think any fellow Adelaide wombles may need a few beers to dull the pain of any “tales from KM” this season. Enjoy yourselves.

    Only 4003 there on Saturday including 220 odd from Burton. And there were plenty around me saying this could be the last time they come this season. Whether you say they are fair weather fans or not, attendances aren’t looking too good.

    The worst thing of all is that you can’t blame them. Going down with some fight is OK, but on Saturday there…[Read more]

    Wow! Wow! Wow! With cup football, there’s always the chance the minnows can sneak a win, but if anyone predicted us doing it in such style, they’re lying through their yellow and blue teeth.

    Walking to the ground 45 minutes before KO, you could hear that Kingsmeadow was already rocking from several hundred yards away. Credit to the fans who…[Read more]

    Here’s my best moment of Saturday’s game. Ramsey’s knee slide to the edge of the area when we equalised. He really does seem a quality keeper, and I love it when players show some emotion.

    My worst moment has to be THAT miss by Jervis. We could easily have gone in at HT 3-1 up. Sure Ramsey was by far the busiest keeper in the first half, but…[Read more]

    Liam is spot on. Not playing the likes of Trotter and Soares is paying off. I have to say young Hartigan is a joy to watch. He’s an unassuming player, who doesn’t really get the credit he deserves. He does the simple stuff well, but it’s his vision that really makes him stand out. I hope he continues to get a run in the team.

    Up front Appiah and…[Read more]

    I can understand the frustration to those fans who went to Charlton, but I can also understand Wally’s tactics. I may not agree with them though.

    He knows he’s in a desperate situation, therefore it is safety first. “Don’t get beat” is his mantra, and the rest can follow. He needs every point he can get, and being unadventurous will do if we…[Read more]

    Observations from the Rochdale game…

    The jury is still out on Wally’s appointment. His “joke” tweet certainly hasn’t helped him cement a base to gain the trust of the fan base. Perhaps only results will do that. If we’re still in Division One next season, he’ll have done what he’s been asked to do.

    The squad is bereft of depth. With Pigott…[Read more]

    Devon. If Bassey and Wally butt heads, there will only be one winner 🙂

  • Colum replied to the topic The Lounge in the forum WDSA Forum 6 months, 3 weeks ago

    Bloody hell. I should have kept quiet! Only the date/time to be rearranged now 🙁
    Still at least we’ll have Wally and Glynn up to speed by then, and hopefully some new signings.

  • Colum replied to the topic The Lounge in the forum WDSA Forum 6 months, 3 weeks ago

    I’d quite like Man Utd at home. It would be a delight to see Mourinho’s miserable sulking face at KM, and the way they’re playing this season, I’d fancy our chances. After that, then I’d take Arsenal away. Knowing our luck this season though, we’ll get Guiseley away, with the game switched to 12pm on a Sunday!
