Re: 3 games to go. Where will we finish

We will not finish below 10th and top half is an amazing achievement. We will get 56 or 59 points My gut feeling is 8th which would have been Europa is Citeh couldn’t have afforded the better lawyers 8th is perfect. Edit.

Re: ARTICLE: Tarkowski wins player of the year for second time

As someone said the other day, Tarks has developed into a rolls Royce of a player. A collosis, skillful, leader and he bullies the opposition. Better than McQuire and only VVD surpasses him imo.

Only an idiot would do that, especially when we were virtually already safe. Same for Lennon to a lesser degree. If Jeff was demanding a signifi...

Excellent op. This is why the Club must continue with it's policy of being prudent. However, we must have enough adequate players for every position.
