I don't watch soccer am these days but looking at his profile he is a proper pro keeper who has always had clubs at this sort of level.

Not sure how he landed the soccer am gig, maybe he used to play with Jimmy bullard, but it's not like you've got Brian 'The Cat' Regan in goal.

Yeah he was second choice at Harrogate last season and played on loan at Darlington.

Barnet’s goalkeeper was injured in the warmup before the pre-season game against Sutton. With no other goalkeepers in the squad Barnet had to borrow Sutton’s 2nd choice goalkeeper Brad House.

This is made worse by the fact that the injured keeper is planned to be our second choice. We're looking for a first choice, but couldn't even find a trialist for today's game.

A rare Championship entry for the tinpot thread - we’ve got to play in our away kit at home to Derby tomorrow because they don’t have an away kit. One week before their season starts.

I hope they’ve got enough trialists showing up otherwise they’ll be knocking on your door asking if they can borrow some of yours

Derby could have a few entries to this thread this year by all accounts

Derby are the newest entry into the race for the title as the most Batshit crazily run club in the last decade. There is some strong competition but they are really going for it.

What’s happening at Derby then?
I genuinely had no idea anything was going on there until I read the last couple of posts on here.

Lots and been going on a while, they are the next Bolton, Portsmouth, etc

Subject to a takeover that's never happening, not paying players wages, under a EFL transfer embargo, no accounts published, only 9 players registered including 2 keepers, not selling season tickets yet...

The list goes on

Ran out of money, potential new owner was a Walter Mitty and dropped out, Rooney doing his bit for tin pottery, huge debts, no new owners on the horizon.
I've a friend who used to coach some of the juniors and they were skint a couple of seasons ago, Mel Morris had one more throw of the dice to get into the PL, just to make the club saleable. Lampard almost made it but now they've got the debt hangover.

Even more bad news for them - they’re not playing any of their many trialists today which presumably means they’re not going to be allowed to sign them before their first game.

Let’s be honest, it would be more surprising if Solihull didn’t release a video like this to announce a signing

That is horrific. Thankfully our soon-to-be-departed media person would never put out anything so cringe.

I've only read these on the conference forum & not checked but

Sutton's pitch isn't ready & they've switched games
Harrogate's ground doesn't have a safety certificate atm

Cheshire Police are forcing our away friendly at Nantwich to an early kick off on Saturday because Crewe are home to Cheltenham at 3pm in the league....

We'll take about 200 and 80% will drive straight to Nantwich because there's only 1 train per 2 hours from Crewe to there. :ffs:

I suspect the reason they are playing PSFs at Farnborough - whose ground I think just about meets EFL standards - instead of somewhere more local is with a view to potentially having to play there if their pitch installation continues to drag on.

Sutton's pitch situation is sort of defendable, they've had a limited timeline and made arrangements to deal with the issue.

Harrogate on the other hand, can fuck right off. The most tinpot shit I have ever seen. Literally not fit for league status, how were they allowed to be promoted?

Having seen our social media fall for the trap, that's grounds for automatic relegation.
