We quite often make big announcements on a Thursday or Friday so I wonder if tomorrow is the big day to announce new player signing, new contract signing or training ground future. Fingers crossed that it's all three or at least the first two.
Now we know which league we will definately be in next season, how many will re-new, how many will will wait to see where we are at Christmas before buying half season ticket and how many have just had enough and won't re-newi?
Unfortunately I can see us starting the season worse (result wise) than last season. What will the excuse be:
The team need time to gel and get used to managers system
The team is young and lacking experience
We did play well but we were unlucky
Must lift our heads, dust ourselves down and get...
What odds PNE making Play offs or even getting automatic? According to some on here we have seen some poor football from teams above us (weren't they all?) and we really only lost because Lady Luck (and injuries/suspensions) had forsaken us

I know I will be blasted but I honestly think Championship football is more exciting and unpredictably than Premiership especially for the likes of PNE. OK so there would be some more money but by the time the higher wages, transfer fees etc are paid we would hardly be better off. Football wise...
With bids of silly money coming in for our players will the club weaken and return to being a "selling club" or will we continue to build a team of hungry young footballers willing and able to make a push for promotion. I hope it's the latter.
Please think carefully before jumping ship especially to Sunderland. If Alex Neil is appointed it shows that the club owner is intent on getting promotion to the Premiership and believes we have the players to do so. Alex Neil has experience in getting teams promoted to both the Scottish and...
