    Summer Transfer Window Rumours and Discussion

    I don't understand. How are we weaker when the only player who would potentially have been a first teamer to go was Tom Clarke? You could argue that other clubs have strengthened but not all have and the window is still open

    Summer Transfer Window Rumours and Discussion

    Three quotes from DJ's piece in tomorrow's programme ( he's featured on the front cover): This time last year "I didn't think I was going to be here but the window shut and I got the opportunity." "I have aspirations and I have goals and I want to push on." Being made captain against Brentford...

    Minimum needed to persuade you to renew your season ticket

    That's what happened to my daughters and their families when Ryan Air refused to refund flights to Mallorca. Cost them well over a grand between them.

    Euxton Training Ground

    It would have been interesting to eavesdrop on the talks between Peter Ridsdale, who left Leeds in such a financial mess, and Gerald Krasner, who had to clear it up and is doing the same for Wigan.

    Rumour.. (Rudd Injury)

    Sounds like a repeat of a couple of years ago when we started the season with Maxwell in goal after a very similar sounding injury to Rudd.

    Interesting PNE Trivia

    There can't have been many times when a father and son have played for the first team in the same season but I think the year big Sam was caretaker player manager his son Craig featured briefly in a game as well.

    Alex Neil Calls Out Trevor Hemmings

    Two points: Prices have risen massively since we signed Healy, who would be worth a lot more than £1.5m nowadays. If AN is such a bad manager why would anyone else want to poach him?

    Alex Neil

    With some exceptions (e.g. Wigan & Barnsley away) we had been playing poorly well before lockdown, especially at home. The pressing game requires all the players to perform near maximum most of the time and we just couldn't keep it going and went into our shell. We don't have enough Gregan type...

    Sustaining it over 46 games takes more than we currently have.

    Alex Neil

    It's understandable to be disappointed at the season petering out but a dose of harsh reality is needed. We were in a good position for a long time but the season is 46 games, not 30. We lacked the depth of quality in the squad to continue with a high intensity pressing game so reverted to...

    Why the lack of confidence?

    Spot on. How many times do we get more than two attackers in the box when we have an opportunity to cross or check back inside instead of shooting?

    Match Day - PNE v Cardiff City - Championship - 27/06/20 - KO:12:30 pm

    complain about the lack of goals but I think it's telling that we've kept only 2 clean sheets in the last 17, both away (Stoke and Barnsley)
