Transfer Embargo A Bitter Pill For Pilgrims

The incongruous minds within the Football League have yet again hindered stricken Devonshire side Plymouth Argyle by handing them a transfer embargo, preventing the two planned loan signings Carl Fletcher had in mind from joining.

Not quite free from the wreckage of their hideous past few years due to the proposed takeover having not been fully completed, Plymouth are still confined to the numbingly painful administration procedures in which new signings cannot link up and play. Though it cannot be long before hotelier, James Brent, completes his takeover and assesses the situation at Home Park. Continue reading ‘Transfer Embargo A Bitter Pill For Pilgrims’

Trust Me – I Own My Club

Pococurante chairmen. We’ve seen the type. Mindless to the extreme, mistaking the latest Championship Manager PC game for their stricken club dwelling beneath their par, expecting a dramatic turnaround to be as facile as a push on the reset button.

Fans panic; demonstrations begin. Banners, posters, choruses of cogent chanting bring about messy headlines and a desperation to seize control. Yet Exeter City need not fear as their loyal fanbase own their club, preventing the catastrophic mis-management seen within many a football league club over the past 20/30 years as I talk to Exeter City Supporters’ Trust (ECST) press officer, Martin Lawrence about his club.  Continue reading ‘Trust Me – I Own My Club’

Chesterfield V Leyton Orient – A Fans Preview

Viewing a League 1 table is enough to churn the stomach linings of both teams who meet at the B2Net Stadium tomorrow. With only Chesterfield recording a single point from their first 5 games as opposed to Orient who are yet to get off the mark, the result could well signal a tough season ahead for whoever loses.

Though not yet a 6-pointer at this embryonic stage of the season, a great deal of confidence will no doubt be gained or lost from the encounter. Continue reading ‘Chesterfield V Leyton Orient – A Fans Preview’

One to Watch – Jonathan Williams

17-year-old Jon Williams’ summer holiday hasn’t been your average one. Whilst people of a similar age were most probably partying, lazing around and taking it easy, Williams aided Crystal Palace in a thrilling comeback against Coventry and received a first full start under Dougie Freedman a week later in the Carling Cup.

His talent is undoubted; despite only 2 matches under his belt Williams has already attracted the attentions of Liverpool and Arsenal alongside recognition internationally with the Welsh Under 21s. Continue reading ‘One to Watch – Jonathan Williams’

Leon Clarke’s Swindon Future Over

Following The Robins’ Carling Cup exit to Southampton, the scene turned noticeably ugly as an altercation between club physio, Claudio Donatelli and striker Leon Clarke rowed over training the next morning.

Having signed on loan from QPR just days before with his own levels at less than maximum, Clarke’s anger soon turned to manager Paolo Di Canio. Continue reading ‘Leon Clarke’s Swindon Future Over’

Brighton Look At Home in New Surroundings

Promoted from League 1 full of confidence, Brighton have adjusted to life in the Championship rather well, sat proudly at the summit after 5 games and an unbeaten beginning to the campaign. There’s no sign of teething problems either having made the transition from the weathered Withdean to the impressive Amex Arena during the summer, adjusting perfectly to the new era currently unfolding.

Game of the Weekend – Rotherham 3-0 Gillingham

Coming into the match, these two sides could be separated only by goals scored as 3rd place Gillingham travelled to the Don Valley Stadium.

Reeling from the loss of star striker, Adam LeFondre, to Reading earlier this week, Rotherham needn’t lose pace on the title race simply due to one man’s absence. A quick reply was required and Millers’ fans got exactly that. Continue reading ‘Game of the Weekend – Rotherham 3-0 Gillingham’
