  1. Ex Tottenham Hotspur youth midfielder Daniel Gray is also on the look out for a club. He is based in Middlesex and his CV reads thus: 'Hi I am Daniel Gray been playing football from the age of 4 (now I am aged 20) and I've played at a good level of football. One of the clubs I've played for Tottenham Hotspur and being in a great training and coaching system I've learnt an adapted different things to my game. I can play right or left wing, centre midfield or as a striker. I am a born left footed player but have adapted playing with the right foot as well due to great practice and determina
  2. Guess it was inevitable. Hearing that Alex McLeish might be a front-runner for the vacancy.
  3. 'Craig Castle Previous clubs: Swindon Town AFC Bournemouth Aldershot Town AGE: 21 'Very pacey forward with a great shot and delivery. My distribution and knowledge on the pitch are of a very high standard. I netted over 20 goals at reserve level with AFC Bournemouth whilst playing there. I've played against big names and have a lot to prove. Looking for a chance to show what I can do, in a team of committed athletes. Living in Berkshire. My number is: 07880254444 Email: craigcastle91@hotmail.co.uk'
  4. 'If you can stay up and listen with a fair degree of attention to whatever garbage, no matter how stupid it is that they're coming out with, til ten minutes past four in the morning... you're in.' Marcel Proust/Peter Cook.
  5. Not at all Rhodes. Mansfield have done well thus far, but League 2 is a marathon and not a sprint. I stand by my previous assertion - in my opinion,they won't finish in the top 10. I don't even think that their owners would expect them to - their target (like Newport) has to be survival this season. That is not to say a top 10 finish is not beyond them, but it would take something special. If Mansfield can nick points off Chesterfield, Fleetwood and Oxford then maybe they can do it. League 2 is certainly interesting this season - AFC Wimbledon 3rd and Cheltenham Town 3rd fr
  6. 'it just so happened to be Amanda, an angelic child who wouldn't hurt a fly.' We know this for sure?
  7. I did see an online report that Amanda has said she won't return to Italy. So I guess that is that then (or is it?)
  8. Only went once many years ago - the ground itself is very nice (typical Step 4 type and called the Sir Halley Stewart Playing Field) and the pitch is usually very good as well. I think it must be one of the closest grounds to a town centre in the UK. http://www.sholland.gov.uk/leisure/bookanevent/SirHalleyStewartPlayingFieldFootball.htm Not sure about the ales they sell, but I have done some research and here is a list of pubs which do sell real ale in Spalding: http://www.hitthebar.co.uk/real-ale-pubs-in-spalding
  9. Great minds, John I wonder if Mr. Dyke has given any attention,in his thoughts, to the young people described in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Up-4po19meg As I have found out with doing some minor coaching and also via UK Football Finder, there are a lot of good young players out there but if they are from the wrong parts of society (broken homes/dead end council estates) or have self-esteem/mental health issues, or parents who don't care about them or whom vehemently oppose them from playing football then the odds are well and truly stacked against them making it.
  10. Hope you have a great day up in Lincolnshire (seems an awful long way for a London side like AFC Hornchurch to have to travel - usually it's my lot that get send to the ends of the earth in the FA Cup!) Anyway, if you need directions - from Hornchurch join the M25 anti-clockwise and take the A1(M) to the B1081 roundabout at Rowthorpe. Take the B1081 until it merges with the A43 and stay on this road (through the town centre) until it forms a junction with the A16 and take the A16 towards Market Deeping. The A16 and A15 roads become one road for a short distance around the west of Market
  11. It was meant tongue in cheek - I would support capping the Premier League wages at £10,000 a week. Anybody who can't live on that amount of money each week obviously hasn't got his/her head screwed on straight. As for Qatar 2022, it is going to be a cock up - reckon England and the other Home Nations should boycott it.
  12. An interesting comment from Steve Carley of Worcester News: 'I FIND it strange that the Premier League is continually blamed for the failure of the England team. Every time the national team fails to do well at a major tournament, pundits are falling over themselves to point the finger at the amount of imported talent — or “foreigners” — in our top division. The argument is that an ever-increasing number of players from around the globe are giving the national manager, currently Roy Hodgson, fewer English players to pick from. This is true and the influx of overseas players has certa
  13. Diane Sawyer and Kay Burley will be after Rhodes for his exclusive thoughts, no doubt.

  15. If any sides (including Reserve/U21s) have a free weekend and can host a game (I did say if) then Leatherhead U21s are looking for an away fixture. Any teams interested should email Barry Wilde - barrywilde856@btinternet.com. Thanks
  16. You haven't penned this blog, by any chance, Rhodes?: http://knoxarchives.blogspot.co.uk/ That Mignini guy... looks very familiar... not sure if he commands RESPECT I'm sure that Norman Patti will be in court after Amanda, like Oprah at an all you can eat....
  17. Sir Alf Ramsey Bill Shankly Bob Paisley Sir Alex Ferguson as well. Brian Clough is my favourite manager ever though.

  19. Thanks for the reply, Eastside, hopefully he'll do well for you if he signs. A few(ish!) names to mention, and these players were due to train before Oxford United coaches but this event got cancelled so they are looking at clubs from Step 4-6 at which to train: Romaine Henry (any outfield position, currently training with Watford COE and based in Middlesex but can travel) romaine16@hotmail.co.uk Ezra Barned (any outfield position, currently training with QPR College Hammersmith and based in East London but can travel) ebarned@hotmail.co.uk Sequino Okai-Ntow (left-winger, has p
  20. Don't forget the good work that Brian Clough did with Derby County as well. I think that it was around 1981 that he fell out with Peter Taylor.
  21. Greg Dyke's words have not gone down well with Swindon Town owner Jed McCrory: 'SWINDON Town chairman Jed McCrory has waded into the state of English football debate by saying ‘invest in the Football League as the Premier League will not change’. Last week Greg Dyke, the new chairman of the Football Association, addressed the nation’s footballing contingent - speaking outwardly to fans, coaches, players and journalists in search of an answer to the decline in numbers of homegrown talent in the Premier League. In doing so, Dyke announced his intention to chair an exploratory commission
