  1. Like everyone I am pleased by the 5 new signings, my only reservation is they are all from step 3. I was hoping that we could have attracted two outfield players from the NLS to add proven quality to the team,thus not breaking the bank but addressing the players that have left our team. I'm glad Nathan Minhas is finally joining Slough, at last a goal poacher but with Mickel Platt a raw,young and not necessarily Bracknell's first choice striker I'm worried that we have no back up if Ogo Obi does seek greener pastures. It also looks exacerbated if a wily experienced NLS campaigner like Elliot Benyon leaves,too. With Scott also showing Imran Kayani the door, we need a bit more firepower than just Nathan and Mickel. I hope Scott has someone/s else in mind up front, as to me that looks a priority. What is good with the new signings is they are all of a good age and no one is 'over the hill'. I'm looking forward to seeing what they can do in pre-season.
  2. I don't agree. I don't say every full back can do this but Josh is a far better player than you give him credit for. You're the type of bloke that would have kept Gareth Bale playing at left back for the whole of his career !🙃
  3. While Josh is a great right back, I also find it a waste putting him there.Yes, he is a noteworthy right back when we play the best teams and we need solid defenders to match and thwart top opposition wingers but for a lot of our games I wouldn't play him there and I would use him in an abundance of positions including centre of midfield,right wing and even as a makeshift centre half. He has matured fully and now is ready as captain and a leader to be so much more than a right back. With Jeanmal Prosper,Scott Davies and possibly another youngster/up and comer like Gabe coming through,and if we also have Joe Dandy, we should be well covered for that one position this season
  4. Well RR, I appreciate what you are saying but until we see who Scott has recruited and is keeping from last season I don't see the urgency of signing a holding midfielder yet. Unless someone offers Slough someone like Godfrey Poku ! He isn't only a holding midfielder, though, and that would be doing him a disservice to say so. Like when Lee Togwell is called a holding midfielder. He can do that sort of role but he isn't a one trick pony. Jeanmal Prosper can certainly play in midfield but I'm not expecting him to play centre-mid all the time either. He should offer our side versatility, though, as he is a clever player on the ball.
  5. As I've already said, Togs will be a huge miss[both as a player and in coaching]. When you say a ball winning type of midfielder, shouldn't it just be centre midfielders that can tackle and do more besides? To me centre midfielders are not all the same.As in everything it is really about what type of game Slough want to play, or need to play when under pressure. Having a strong ball winner in midfield can make a difference, granted but to me is not necessarily needed at this present time. I wouldn't look to bring a player like that in yet unless [a class one of note became available !]. To me pre-season and the first couple of months is a settling down period about finding out what our new players can do [and how they shape up with last season's squad]. Let's just see who Scott signs first before we get negative ! 😉
  6. I got the wrong name with Louis Paget. I mean Jonathan Page he is 21 years old. Michael Fernandes was the other one. Chike Kandi, I just mentioned as he seems surplus to requirements at Farnborough and is a striker and seems to have played at higher up clubs. Whether he's better than Elliot Benyon and Imran Kayani,I don't know.Might be worth finding out though.
  7. It still seems a mystery where the funds are coming from to fund our club but they must be there somewhere, as the football club would be 'like a petrol tank running on empty' ie you won't get very far until someone fills up ! 😃
  8. Ryan Upward is a good player but I can't say I'm desperately disappointed that he has signed for Farnborough and not Slough. Our focus needs to be on a centre half and a centre forward.
  9. How do you know about their wages? It seems like you are guessing. Besides 3 of the players mentioned would likely be lower wages. Slough with new owners must have some money in the pot to attract players, I know the club will need to shop wisely but nothing says Scott can't find bargains, or NLS players that might disillusioned at their clubs or wanting a new challenge/new experience in a different team. To me Farnborough being a local-ish club is a good place to pick up one or two players from, especially as in the last few seasons they had some success in what they've been doing. I don't mind Slough being a poorer relation in terms of finances to Farnborough but I wouldn't say we are in status.In terms of stadium and fan base Slough easily match Farnborough.
  10. I found it odd RR that you said there is only one of interest that being Freddie Grant, as I thought Farnborough have quite a few players of interest. Scott Davies needs a coach to replace Lee Togwell. I thought it would be a bonus if Slough could find a coach that could still play occasionally, and what would be good was if that coach happened to be a striker ! There's a player called Ricky Holmes at Farnborough that is a highly qualified coach and played League football. He has had injuries but to me might make a good coach for Slough and help our young strikers get better[and other players] and may be of use as a bit part squad player. Then there's a young striker called Chike Kandi played for Dover and Farnborough last season.Good age and may be worth looking over for Slough pre-season. Then there's a wide defender called John Oyenuga who has been Farnbough's best player for two seasons,who hasn't signed for them yet. Plus one or two young midfielders [Paget I think is one of them,can't remember the other's name] that might be worth a view pre season, and then there's Reggie Young a player not the biggest but certainly a good creator of attacks reminds me of Paul Hodges ie short,quick,breaks into the box,can go past a player,passes well and scores the odd goal. So to me Farnborough have a number of players that should be of interest to Scott.
  11. I don't agree. Freddie Grant is a better player than Gabe George but he should be as he is older and is far more experienced than Gabe. Freddie can play a number of positions and will be in demand.Could play one league higher. Gabe is still learning his role in our team and is still very much a novice. He has plenty of potential but we shouldn't expect too much from him yet.
  12. We need a left back. I thought Freddie Grant was good at what he did. I like Gabe George but prefer him as a wing back. Freddie I can't see him coming back to Slough but you never know.
  13. Not a surprise to me. Wish him well but our club moves on.
