Re: 10, or ten...

Jolley isn’t a front man, from the forum he told me he can play out wide; but prefers a central midfield role. He used to earlier in his career, apparently, but then I don't think Gayle can play LB either. It's just about 90 minutes of cohesion and fitness really, and demonstrating that we have the...

Re: Charlie Carter signs for Chesterfield.

The club website has a message to the supporters from Charlie and more importantly mentions its a good deal for the club When are the club going to make an announcement disclosing the EXACT figure though? I’m not going to attend games until we receive this information. Shambles from the club yet ag...

Re: Charlie Carter signs for Chesterfield.

Super move for Charlie - a club at something of an all time low and hopefully he can follow them back up the pyramid. Great chance to get in at the ground level. Gutted he's going personally as he was the best talent the academy has produced in several years and he always gave it everything. Hopeful...

Re: This Deserves More Support

I can't see the relationship between Dowson and our board lasting that long on current form. He's far too open and honest. If the board got annoyed when Garry used the press as a tool for his own agenda then how are they going to react when Dowse starts telling club secrets to passersby in the stre...

Re: One that's got away.

I think/hope that anyone who suggests a player being asked to drop three divisions and not wanting to do so lacks ambition, would be saying so relatively tongue in cheek.

Re: WFC TV: Hear from Dowse

Watching that certainly made me feel a little uncomfortable. I suppose it is, in many ways, a very good thing that Dowse is clearly so wrapped up in the community and fanbase aspects of a football club that he takes jibes on a forum so personally. As he said himself, you can understand the frustrati...

Re: One that's got away.

To move from Portsmouth to neighbours Havant - who are sadly the division above us now - is pretty understandable. He was open about wanting to move there from the start. Doubt it has all that much to do with money to be honest. Good luck to the guy and looking forward to seeing who else Dowse has g...

I believe Margate were in Conference South at the time so he's always been at this sort of level or above.

Re: Jack Cook signs for Woking

I don't think that's necessarily true. We've only signed three defenders and it's not unreasonable to think we'll want six or seven in total. Whilst it is entirely possible, probably even likely, that he will leave - I don't think the signings so far are a guarantee of that.

Re: Fans Forum this Tuesday 12th June 7.30

Worth noting as well that Havant signed Alfie Pavey from Dartford who was top scorer in this division last season so may not want to take another big money striker. Whilst I doubt Kabamba has much intention of joining us right now I can imagine he could be one to filter down if he's unsuccessful get...

Re: these payers we are signing

Theophanous wasn't exactly first choice for Ricay last season and I'm sure he'd score a few goals at this level. Did I read somewhere Wheeler was dropped because he was telling the press stuff about Tampon? Being a fringe player in a team like that isn't that bad. I'd rather be taking their players...

Re: these payers we are signing

A tad harsh - Wheeler wasn't just some player who impressed Dowse. He was in the Isthmian team of the year twice in a row at Tonbridge. Yes, things didn't work out for him at Dagenham - who have their own problems - but he wasn't given much of a chance and if we are being fair on Billericay there ar...

Welcome Nicky! Decent spine starting to emerge and a nice mix of experience and youth. If we can get a striker with a decent non-league record then things will be really looking up.

Just to circumvent any questions or assumptions about this - I've removed the player profiles on the website for those no longer under contract.

Encouraging line on Carter at the bottom of that GetSurrey piece. As for the stuff about budget.

For one, that's already gone down from last month, wh...

I would add that whilst Dowse is back from holiday now it's likely that a number of the players are still away - there is every chance that players have agreed to join but haven't signed on, so to speak, because they're not around at the moment. We only had 9 players for the first pre-season game a ...
