I was very impressed with him last season and thought he would be great for us this season but I fear that his head has been turned by greedy people and he is probably not one of Matt's favourite people.
I strongly suspect that Matt is not one to bear grudges.
With the new signings and the likes of Kassimu (no mug) likely ahead of him in the pecking order now, I imagine it might be a long road back. Grudges put aside. He will need to wait for his chance, and quite right too.
Squad is limited to 22 - excluding GKs so that makes us 24 - KK is a free pass as he is under 21 - and I expect John Barden isn't technically not a squad member atm as a long term injury like a broken leg so that's how we are at the maximum in terms of squad. If more come in , Matt has repeatedly indicated 2 more , then players will have to go out on loan and possibly Dundo may have to hang up his boots. Cue Dave F to come in and put me right.
We have some depth but as a safety first type of person i would prefer us to sign another experienced central midfielder who can also cover a defensive position over a wide player, My reasoning notwithstanding injuries is with the new rules on refs to react with yellows to delaying game etc the risk of centre midfield players defenders getting suspensions is greater. Of course if Matt can get both " I would love it"
- House (too good to be 3rd choice keeper here) - Nat South/Isthmian; - Khinda (taste of men’s football after good pre-season) - Isthmian; - Barden (short term loan after horror injury) - Nat Prem; - Ogundega - Nat South; - Taylor (taste of men’s football) - Isthmian; - Fadahunsi - Nat Prem/Nat South.
We still have 27 players (one of whom is on a season long loan to Hendon) and after Saturday I can't see where we need strengthening, although Matt may want some more depth. We shall see...
Keepers - Jack Rose, Brad House, Steve Arnold, Matt Kerbey (season long loan to Hendon)
Defence - Jon Barden, Sam Hart, Ben Goodliffe, Louis John, Tobi Ogundega, Joe Kizzi, Rob Milson, Omar Sowunmi, Ryan Jackson
Midfield - Harry Beautyman, Craig Dundas, Craig Eastmond, Josh Coley, Christian N'Guessan, Craig Clay
Forwards - Tope Fadahunsi, Kylian Kouassi, Hisham Kasimu, Lee Angol, Harry Smith, Scott Kashket, Omari Patrick, Aiden O'Brien
Useful summary! I suggest a few tweaks.
Dundo has been used most recently as a defender (albeit because we were short of fit bodies at the back).
Omari Patrick is primarily a winger (i e. midfielder, like Coley) rather than a striker (forward).
Matt seems to be using Tope as a winger, perhaps because we're a bit light in numbers out there.
Agreed. I did consider splitting it down to keepers, wide defenders, central defenders, defensive midfield, attacking midfield, wingers, and forwards, but as this is open to so much interpretation I just stuck with positions given on the clubs website.
We're awesome on grass, we're awesome on gra-ah-arse. We were great on 3G but, we're awesome on grass.
ggl: So are we now saying we have a manager who is not in favour of bringing in loan players and if the board decided to part company with him they cannot afford to do so ?

historyboy: So sorry to hear about the passing of Eddie Clack. I Remember him well.

historyboy: Sad to hear of the passing of Eddie Cack, I remember him well. I think that the said photograph publishsed by the club, of him sitting next to Dave Hermitage, isn't him at all; I think the picture shows Micky Goodall. Compare other pictures of both.

scorpioeyes: It certainly would be 'convenient' for Dover to have the season washed out. if they fail to turn up tomorrow,we should be awarded the game and 3-0 to our goal difference.Why should we be inconvenienced by any attempts to rearrange the game?

Burtie: Hello chaps. Is there any intelligence about the crowd situation for the game vs Hartlepool on 22 May? Does the club have a position on supporters?

scorpioeyes: I think these odds are quite amazing. If I was a neutral looking at the recent form and upcoming fixtures,I'd make hartlepool or perhaps Torquay as fave for the title. To have 'pool at 9s and us as evens is bizarre.

valiant: Hello again! Can you tell me where the away seating is please? I thought it was behind the goal next to the away terrace but looking at the film on Quest I can't see it! Thanks.

pinewalker: There is a temporary stand at 45 degrees to the pitch behind the NE corner flag, and there is more away seating at the east end of the main stand both accessed via the away turnstiles.

holmesdale96: Sorry to hear of Danny's death, a real loss. I saw him regularly during the 90's at his home in Streatham, always charged the same small fee for years, an absolute gentleman with his dear wife Rose. RIP Danny
