KC Royal Noticed that Craig Tanner got an assist for Ebbsfleet on Sat. Didn't realise he was playing for them now.


Did well when in loan at Plymouth and eventually moved to Motherwell on a 2 year deal in 2017. Looked to be doing quite well there early on but picked up a serious knee injury in training and effectively was out for 18 months before returning to the Motherwell reserve side and rejecting a new deal there before signing for Aldersh*t a couple of seasons ago.

Riquelme - remember him? Big star to take us to next level, only to be poached by Bournemouth and then cue the twitter and forum spat.

Well, he's too lightweight apparently, Bournemouth fans baffled as to why they wanted him so much over us - he is now off on loan to Mirandes in Spain.

On another side dish, Guntz starts for Wales.....and finishes on the winning team....complete with a yellow card :shock: :shock:

Given the recent chat about Aaron Kuhl it was interesting to see that he scored for Slough yesterday. He was one of my favourite academy players when he broke through so it's a shame what happened to him.

Today, Windsor FC has announced the signing of James Harper. Welcome back to Berkshire, James. Hope your stay with The Royalists (if that is still their nickname) will be as succussful as with The Royals.

just spotted this in regards to Stam being sacked by Cincinnati

FCC's now sits at 4-13-8 – Stam posted an 8-28-12 record as manager of Cincinnati – and is second-to-last in the MLS Eastern Conference.

The 2021 season was been a complete disappointment for FC Cincinnati, which built a slightly lopsided, attack-heavy team in terms of expenditure and had one of the most expensive rosters in MLS this year.


His career been an absolute shambles since season 1 here. It was a total fluke wasn't it?

poor Tyler as well

Should post this in here but here is an interview conducted with Andy Bernal - https://youtu.be/1Juu9w51uak

I'm sure you will all find it really interesting. Talks about setting up the goal for Nogan at Wembley

One of the strangest managers we’ve ever had

Found a system which worked to a tee - which got us to two kicks away from the Prem, and then for some unbeknown reason decided to alter it to something vastly different and complicated. Predictably, it didn’t work, and he then seemed determined to criticise the fans at any point

Haven’t followed his career much since then but on the snippets I’ve seen, it seems it’s been a similar pattern to his second season here

Meanwhile, Steven Reid's career seems to have gone quite well. :?

I wonder how Stam is taking his latest failure. In his 2nd season here, it often felt he'd blame everyone else including fans before admitting responsibility and learning from his mistakes, and it wasn't long afterwards that he said it only went wrong because he wasn't backed in the transfer market and that he wanted a chance in the PL (despite his signings being a key cause of FFP issues for years afterwards). That lack of humility is probably why I dislike him the most in a crowded field of recent unlikeable RFC managers.

Since us, he has had an absolute shocker. Unlucky? Style? Man management? Other than another dutch league 2 team taking a punt, i think he is now toast.

Ex triallist Kareem Harris has apparently joined Metalist Kharkiv in the Ukraine, meanwhile Jayden Onen is trialling with Sheffield Wednesday.

Think he will do a full 360 and end up back within Ajax’s back room staff, ever to remain.

What went wrong for Stam would be a fascinating story tbh. All the players seemed to absolutely love him at the time. But he didn't half make some errors - letting go a load of decent young players, poor signings, falling out with fans etc. But he did incredibly well first season with a side I think we thought would be near the relegation zone, and finances stretching not much further than the likes of Wieser and big Danzel.

Honestly expected him to go to a different league and do alright but a couple of shocking spells at Feyenoord and Cincinnati

I wonder whether a lot of the players signed after the play#off loss were players that Stam really wanted (thinking Barrow and Aluko in particular). Or were they owners (or Kia’s) signings?
