  1. DOF at a club can mean so many different things, depending on the Club. And some Clubs have a few few DOF...not just one. The main point of a DOF is to be the go between. From Coach to Board. Within our own Club, right now, we have a very healthy environment, where Coaches, CEO and Board members and owner can all speak freely with one another. LJ and all his coaching staff concentrate on the footballing side of things. MA as CEO acts as go between and deals with everything financial...budgets, contracts, negotiations etc. He's also a Board member...which as a go between is unusual imo. The Club has decided on its structure and how it will run, both financially and in recruitment, type of player 'dna', and to extent a way of playing. I still think we are evolving. Still finding our way a little. So things change. It will change even further if we were to get promotion. Then further if relegated or established. Continual tweeks depending on circumstance. With a Dof...you need someone totally compliant, with an understanding and good relationship with board, owner, it's fan base and traditions of Club. The ideal scenario imo, is that we stuck with LJ... hopefully had seasons ahead together...gaining Promotion and becoming established. If it became stale...who better to become Dofs than LJ and BT. Keeping 'our way' going...with someone else coming in as coach. Just a thought
  2. Hi mate, Yes the fair was at Renishaw yesterday. Didn't go myself....but have been before, and lots of my collecting friends were there yesterday. Glad to hear your 7 year old is into it. It's a great hobby and great friendships can be forged from it. As the article says...it's absolutely massive in Italy. And there was an Interview with Gigi Buffon on TV last week asking him what he's going to be doing in retirement....'playing and collecting Subbuteo'.
  3. That's correct... although have no idea as to who we'll buy and amount we'll spend, but this Summer has been focussed as the big push because of our financial situation.
  4. The great thing is, we will attract even better youngsters. They will see the pathway and opportunities given at our Academy...a fast track system. Either to play for the first team or eventually get a big move if hard work pays off. It's a win win situation.
  5. Played against Nicky Tanner many times when he was at Mangoes. Never thought he'd turn Pro, let alone end up at Liverpool. Very easy to nutmeg :laugh:
  6. They will spread around the world leagues RM.
  7. Bristol City are the masters of late surges, as they’d sit 21st if you halted proceedings in the 71st minute – 16 of their points were gained in the final 19 minutes of matches. https://experimental361.com/2019/05/09/minute-by-minute-league-tables-efl-2018-19/
  8. I think it only covered the Premier League. So wouldn't effect us.
  9. I haven't seen any age mentioned mate, so don't know I'm afraid.
  10. It's to stop the big clubs stock piling players. By all means buy players, but develop them yourself. Not loan out 40 odd with no intention of ever playing them. Basically looking to make money on them.

    Ajax vs Spurs

    If you ever get a chance, do the Ajax experience and see how they are set up as a club. The only time they do poorly is when they go away from Johan's philosophy. A few managers have tried to leave their own mark and it hasn't worked.

    Ajax vs Spurs

    It's Total football again...so much movement...every player comfortable on the ball in every position. Crowd standing, very vocal, having a beer...how football should be

    Ajax vs Spurs

    Think my hero Johan would be proud of this young team. Love Ajax.
  14. FIFA are looking to regulate how many players a team can loan out to 6 in the next year. This was proposed last year. Chelsea have 41 out on loan, plus all their youth and development teams still at the Club. Even with a transfer ban they will have to offload a fair amount, as they will be just sat around not playing. They have enough players to have four squads...mental.
  15. Has nothing to do with the Gas fella...those connections never bother me. I just found JW a dissingenious manager who used to walk around the stands shaking hands with supporters trying to curry favour. He bailed out and left us in the shit. And because of his actions took us back years. Poor old Benny got really stitched up because of him.
