Hate to see Omar back defending corners,think that limits him to getting up front quickly.


Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day,teach a man to fish and you give him an excuse for him to escape from the wife and kids for the weekend and drink lots of beer.

Quoted from Mariner_09
I'd hope he tries to address the areas of concern during January as much as it is possible in January. We need a poacher, I don't know anything about either Sterling or Asante, are either of them poachers. Maybe we could pinch Ricky Miller from Dover, contract up in the summer, league club comes knocking I'm sure we could tempt him, tempting Dover might be trickier though. We need a new left back, Andrew looked suspect again yesterday for me. The new guy would need to be defensively solid first and foremost and then an attacking threat not the other way around. I feel a Townsend quality player (who could both very effectively) is out of reach. Gowling and Collins seem to grips with one another and we seem very solid again. Hoping Biggers can re-install our attacking prowess and more specifically Bogle's goal scoring form.


I disagree with what you say about Andrew. I think he is the best left back we have had in recent seasons [Townsend apart] He does a hell of a lot of work both attacking and defending. If you play 4-2-4 you have to have the winger covering for the full back when he goes forward. We haven't had a proper left winger starting for yonks. I am not blaming Vose because he has been played out of position so lets see what Browne can do. At the moment Andrew is running up and down like a blue arsed fly with no support or backup

Was about to make the same point. Andrew seems to get a lot of undue stick IMO. I think we've looked far better balanced in the last two games and Andrew has played well.

This is the quandary with Vose isn't it. Everyone raves about his ability going forward but it's at what cost? I'm looking forward to seeing a left sided midfielder who can track back so Andrew can show his undoubted ability going forward as well as getting some cover. I remember thinking in pre-season how good he was getting forward and wasn't dissimilar to Conor Townsend in that respect.

Quoted from MARINERSMAN22
Totally agree. Talent gets you so far but ambition gets you further. Pearson, Disley and McKeown have been fantastic. A few seasons ago they were all linked away but they stayed and credit to them!

I would like to see the new manager implement something other than 442 as the players we have are better suited to 433 or 4231. Vose is a very good player but not a winger.

Bignot would be a great appointment


I'm afraid I have to disagree with that. Ambition gets you no where without ability. You need both to be fair. But ambition and hard work alone are not enough in any competitive field if you don't have the talent to start with. That's the kind of thinking that leads to talentless oafs making fools of themselves on those Britain's Got X-Factor type shows.

You also need a fair share of luck that's why I love this game.

You can do all the planning and all the training you like but one bad deflection or bad refs decision and your bollixed.

I just hope he plays our bloody wingers !

Real talent with bolarwinra and browne and hope he abandons this stupid club policy of playing four central midfielders.

I get the impression he will get the best out of them.

Whilst happy with the appointment of Bignot i cannot help but feel more elated by the non appointments of the likes of : knill , Westerly and Wilcox.
based on nothing other then my own thoughts i would like to think we went for Adkins who told us how flattered he was and then went for Bignot


The boss told me to put it in the corner.....i thought he meant the top corner.

The balance looks better with wide men they make life a lot harder for opposing defenders and (just as importantly) gives our defence more of a break. Without wide men we get stretched and pulled out of shape as proved in the first half yesterday.
