Windsor Sec think your reaction is a bit poor, theres absolutely no need to get arsey. Its hardly the sort of attitude to get people involved with the club when people are asking legitimate questions. The amount being asked for is nothing and i would gladly pay for the whole costs if asked, the point being is that friendlies have been played there before have they not, wealdstone, holport,just two off the top of my head. Unless you can provide toilets and basic refreshment even if it was tea and drinks on a table, then to expect people to pay anything to watch the match is out of order. A donation yes but not admission.

Perhaps a civil answer next time yes.

Don't forget Windsorian, Peter's feeling the pinch and there are some promises to be kept. ;)

Just to throw another question to the whole admission charge issue, do/will season ticket holders get in without having to pay? :smilewinkgrin:

I would say if we can get the defence sorted then we wil be okay in he Premier, we have the midfield and forwards who can comfortably keep us mid table. Dunlop would have filled a huge gap at the back but hey ho, you accept it and move on and get someone else. This left back looks promising, so moving in the right direction.

 

So feeling positive about the start of the season, but a totally different attitude to the start of the season as to the start of the last few seasons, all about survival and consolidating rather than winning the league.

Obvious ones are Rob Bullivant, Matt Seedel, and Nathan Jack

I am glad that, according to the reports, there is plenty to be positive about. Progress at a club is about more than just the players.

 

However, contrary to other people's opinions, I believe we are miles away from having a realistic chance of staying up this year with the current squad. Plenty of time for that all to change before the start of the season but if we go into the season, and continue, with what we've got at the moment, I fear we might just "do a Bracknell".

 

Doom and gloom? Not really. Just a note of realism.And after all, it's just a game.

Yes our defence was a fundamental part of our success last season, but we have pretty much our first choice forward line from last season (Chennells and Jack, granted Chennells didn't really have a regular partner it switched a lot from Jack, to Smith to Rico), but Jemel Johnson, albeit didn't score too many last year, but for the seasons prior to that was prolific. We still have three of our first choice four midfielders (plus our squad midfielders Dickens and Pearce), and we have our first choice keeper. Defence is the issue we have lost all four, but there seems to be some encouraging signings there. So I'm pretty optimistic to be honest, just a pity a number are missing tomorrow, but a great opportunity to give the traillists a go.

"Dunlop would have filled a huge gap at the back but hey ho, you accept it and move on and get someone else"

 

 

So has Will Dunlop signed or not?

 

If he hasn't then it looks like we will have to stick Scotty the Stag at centre back and use his height!!

Samaritan,

 

1) The initial response was not poor. This happen to change payers minds and especially when there is a change of manager there will be change in players.

 

2) Of course time will tell. At the moment we have decided not to release details of signings until they are confirmed. Just read the papers this week and you will see.

 

3) Correct, he hasn't been anywhere near Stag Meadow, but then neither have any other players in pre-season. Buck was signed but decided he couldn't commit to Premier Division football and signed for Thatcham. I have heard the ACL injury from a few sources and most not connected with WEFC.

 

4) Noted.

 

5) I never said that Joe was fully paid. I said he was given the expected payment as agreed. Yes, players are still be sorted as per the agreement.

 

6) Whoever is telling you that there were 14 really needs to learn how to count. I can guarantee that there have been at least 20 at every 1st team training session

 

7) Why do the reasons matter? Yes work was due to start in May and no it didn't due to sorting out the financial mess but it has now been sorted and the work is coming on nicely, thanks for asking.

 

8) No, it won't upset the finances. At the moment it is prudent to get players signed and out the way and then try them in pre-season games. The squad is not finalised and there will be a few comings and goings over the next couple of weeks.

 

Appreciate the spelling lesson, but that's just how bored I had got.

who's coming on next posing as a concerned supporter? I look forward (no I dont actually) to the next made up name single posting from the same IP address, making negative comments about things that havent necessarily been put out there in the public domain yet, and perhaps would only been known to someone with a keen interest in making life awkward for the club.

 

roll on 14th august, we'll be alright.

Enjoy the game then?

 

 

Thouroughly enjoyed it. An excellent workout for both teams.

 

A draw would have been a fair result but hey friendlies don't matter do they?

 

I would be surprised if you were there as you seem to not care about pre-season games.

Indeed, I wasn't there, and friendlies don't matter much more than a jot, but I still take a certain pleasure in the result as you can imagine, even though it was against a team from a lower league.

So your 'certain pleasure in the result' must be tempered by the fact that your lot scraped in against a team from 'a lower league'.

 

BTW I'll never understand your logic of 'friendlies don't matter'. It is most certainly a very narrow pointy of view.

 

Ask any manager/player and they will say a good pre-season is vital to a good season.
