So, farewell Steven Gregory. In a transfer that ultimately took nobody by surprise, he’s heading towards the South Coast to Bournemouth for the usual “undisclosed fee”. At least it finally shows why we moved for Max Porter so quickly after the playoff final. Whether it really was true that intially strong interest had been going
Blimey. We all thought things would pick up again after TB got back off holiday, but you can imagine the shock when reading on the OS the following headline : Five Sign Up Today. And no, it wasn’t an announcement the shit early 2000s boy band had signed a marketing deal with us. Two of

.. Crawley in the Carling Cup prelim. And no, that’s not a wind-up. So, after plenty of grumbling about lack of pre-season fixtures, we finally find out why. Got to say, my jaw is still throbbing after it hit the floor at a rate of knots upon reading this, and I bet I’m not the
It’s June, so it must be the footballing equivalent of purgatory… As the players come back from their Las Vegas pissup end-of-season training session, and as our club representatives fly off to the Football League AGM pissup in Cyprus – yes, really – things might start getting going again.
