Decent signings, those.

If those offered stay, that gives us:

Bufton
Pidgeley

Fearn
Ferrell
Hanger
Jones
King
Oseni
Salmon

Barton
Cunningham
Elias-Fernandes
Omrore

Calcutt
Campbell-Mhlophe
Jeacock
Louis

Plus academy players. Maybe a little light in midfield but I'm sure there'll be more to come. Good stuff.

You never did give me those lottery numbers Mick!!

Someone must have unlocked the money tree for some of those signings!!
I was told there was no way on earth we could afford Jefferson, but there you go!!

A good start, so lets see how it progresses!!

So who told you we couldn't afford Jefferson Louis?

I can't imagine at 39 he would cost that much......first to go when we are struggling.

"they have all bought into what we are trying to do here".
Looks like no movement on the manager front then and hence no season ticket for me. We're already hearing the same old crap we have been hearing for years and as others have said, these players will not be around for long so don't expect us to get excited.
I've followed "my" club for nearly 40 years but have lost all interest since that man took the reins.

There in a nutshell is the nub of the problem!!

There is absolutely no faith from supporters, old and new, that anything will be different, or improved year on year!!

Decent signings are made, on the same day as the early bird season ticket is announced, same as last year, and there will be much gnashing of teeth when the offer is not taken up sufficiently to cover the costs of the signings.

This will lead to off loading players when deemed necessary and the blame will be put on financial restraints and Supporters not buying in to the project"!!!


I truly hope that things work out on the playing front, as that is the only place that can make the Club tick, but there are a lot of bridges to be built to convince the stay aways to return!!!

Behind the scenes, great work, but it HAS to happen on the pitch!!! and, if not, questions have to be asked why!!!!!

But then we have all said that so many times in the past, haven't we??

Barry we were told at the FaST AGM that Jefferson louis was on a huge wage at Bishops Stortford, that we couldn't even consider, if we wanted to!!

Now he has either taken a big cut, for one last hurrah of his career, or we have found some cash behind the boiler room or something!!

Actually I wasn't that impressed when he played in that game, but I do see where he could be a big target man to hold up the play, ala Dennis Oli, so lets wait and see.
I just hope it doesn't lead to the big hoof again!!

Unless Boro sign a decent big centre back the results will be the same as last season.

All depressingly familiar... The emperor never learns.

PS Where is Dave Woozley when you need him?

Those who don't learn from history are condemned to repeat it.

Spencer and whoever he currently has installed as chairman don't seem to mind being stuck in an indefinite loop, pushing their boulder up the hill every season to a dwindling crowd, only for the thing to get stuck then roll back down the hill again.

FFC fans however, can be forgiven for not wanting to take part in such an unrewarding pattern, again and again.

I will, however, continue to support the club occasionally if we're not getting trounced, week-in, week-out. At this stage, as with Leanback, Bill etc, who can expect any more?

Unless we sign a big centre back... I quite liked the big lad from K's, on dual reg last season, Michael? Bartley.
Wouldn't mind seeing him back again.

I don't believe that for one minute. Why would a player for Bromley or Brackley, who are what two levels above us sign for Farnborough!

Very nearly two. They lost in the play off final to Harrogate I think.
Are you sure you don't mean a player from the FA Vase final?

He was a Bromley sub on the day...

Mind you, Kevin also 'heard' that Kettering would be Spencer's last game as manager, so his rumour mill might need reassessing. :-)

A total has been. Has had more clubs than Gary Player. His track record indicates he will bugger off before Christmas.

To be fair our track record indicates he will bugger off before Christmas, along with most of the rest of the squad.
