Next year will be the 40th year I have watched the Fleet (assuming my early memoryies of being taken to my first game aged about 5 are correct!) In all that time I cannot remember seeing a better or stronger squad of players at the club. As of now we seem to have strength in depth in every department and talent throught the side.
If we can keep the squad together next year and they show the same application as they are at present it could be a great season.
Does anyone else agree or can you suggest when we were better? I know we went one season where we only lost 2 matches in the league but that was at a lower standard and the team then made up in effort what it lacked in skill.
Is this the best it has ever been?

Agree B t G.
I would also put Portway/Cotter in the squad. I know they played at a lower level, but they would for sure have cut it at this level.

Kenny Burrett, Ken Pearce, Brian Wolfe, Steve Brown.

I think they also could have played.

This list could be endless mind

I do not remember the SL Champion winning team, they must have been pretty good though. Portway is still the best striker ive seen at Stonebridge Rd. He would have scored goals at any level. However all credit to the coach. The conference is a very high standard and overall the current team is the best I have seen. That can only relate from the early 1970's till now.

Did you see him play then?
He wasn't that bad & was only brought in to cover our injury-hit squad at the time.

If you are taking players at the peak of their form then you have to include the internationals Jimmy Logie on the wing and Ted Ditchburn in goal.

Try R-E-A-D-I-N-G then T-H-I-N-K-I-N-G before typing your reply.

Or are you in competition with Squawk? <img src="/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" />
