Re: Posh bond

Help from the council? In other towns maybe….. This is why sometime ago I made my suggestion that the Council incorporate a new office for them into a new stand complex. Most Council’s are only utilising about 30% of floor space post-covid with remote/hybrid working being the default for a lot of s...

As Robin alludes to there is probably a release clause as there was with Ryan Broom. Mind you I don't now follow 72, EFL hub etc. as it's often just kid in a bedroom stuff.

Wonder if Duff would try and bring him back?
I would like to see him in a championship team where he could just play his own game with better players around him,he does try to do things others should be doing.

Re: Cheltenham Town v Portsmouth

The goal kicking tactics is decided by the coaching staff. The key to success is the ability of the players to control the ball and for others to move into space so that they are in a position to receive it. Surely, the coaching must see that the success rate is pretty low and needs revising. It`s ...
