No its simple really you quoted four instances of crap ,fascination with akins ,akins crap ,bowery was a cone a few weeks ago ,forgot the last one ,but you are really fos
forgot the last one, convenient. :lol: Bowery was a cone when incorrectly played uptop when id correctly been saying all along he should be on the wing, so i was right.

Akins has been largely poor and him being put into midfield has caused an issue, which the vast majority of the fan base stated, he’s had a good game at northampton.

So, try again?

Haven’t had an update since the previous one on Monday of 15452. Looking at the current seat map there’s one full block remaining in the bottom tier and a few blocks on each side of the second tier. What that translates as I’m not totally sure.

Yep. You pummeled us that day although we did play a team where most of them knew they were on their way and we had downed tools at that point.

Didn’t we stick Harry McKirdy at left wingback in that game and had a Tom Pope who had clearly been doing anything other than living a professional lifestyle? Best thing about that game was DC’s interview afterwards where he labelled them all deadwood and got rid of them a day or two later. Think it was the game at Field Mill that season that caused us to ultimately sack Askey which began our recovery as a club.

Yeah it was basically like Sunday league when they pick positions out of a hat that game! Pope was furious as that was his farewell and we shoved McKirdy at LWB!

Interestingly I took a look back at that final game and its incredible how big the overhaul actually has been! Only 3 of those which started are still at the club (one who hasn't played in the league all season in Hurst).

2 on the bench are still with us so 13 are gone! Notably two of Mansfield's subs are now at Vale in Stone and Charsley. Guess the decision which stunned most fans last May to get rid of most has come back to be justified!

Olugunju... crickey what happened to him!

Of those players we let go I think there were only two I was a little iffy on at the time and that was Scott Brown and Adam Crookes as a squad player. The latter though if you’d told me the replacements at LCB would be Dan Jones and latterly Connor Hall then that becomes a no-brainer. Obviously Brown was transitioning to coaching, would have loved him to be able to mentor Stone but other than that was fully on board getting rid of the others. You only have to look where most ended up.

Best thing the club ever did and am so glad DC and Flitcroft were ruthless enough to do it. Think Flitcroft even said in the past that the club had been too sentimental (think that more than anything got Popes back up with him as it’s obvious who he meant).

Going to be a tad weird for Clarke, if Vale didn’t pay him you’d see him in the Mansfield end :lol:

Still not totally sure he’s going to be in the dugout on Saturday after his red card. Would have thought if he was banned it would have been announced by now as he pretty much admitted he did wrong right after the game unless they’re hopefully going to drag it out and apply it next season.

I dont see how they can. Play off final or not, if a manager gets sent off he is in the stands for the next game at least. It's not like they havent had time to sort it out since the semi final either.

I know it’s not how it works or the rules but i don’t think you’d see anyone from mansfield kicking off if he’s allowed to be on the dugout.

Only thing I can find in the rules is about four yellow cards but nothing regarding a red!

It's hard to see exactly what happened but the Swindon lad and him appear head to head rather than an actual assault that Swindon fans on twitter are tagging the EFL in complaining about! Looked more handbags to me.

Odd nothing has been mentioned though either way. I assume regardless he can lead the team out even if in the stands after KO?

He said after the semi on Radio Stoke its going to be emotional for him as he's from Mansfield and mentioned his daughter for the first time as she was born there.

Can only go off when DC was interviewed on Radio Stoke a couple of days ago and him and Blakeman were talking like he would be ok for Saturday. A week has passed since the Swindon game and I think watching it back since the presenter on Sky said there’d be an FA hearing but heard nothing. Good thing is if he is kept to the stands we’ve got plenty of experience with Crosby down there.

I’m not sure if the card system for managers works the same with suspensions? Hope he’s in the dug out.

4 yellows is 1 match ban but no info on red's, assume it depends what its for etc once reviewed.

If Clarke was a player and the incident was on the pitch for example its a yellow card level incident for both him and Conroy.

I think the biggest thing he did wrong was leave the technical area like that. If you watch it back you could fit about four more technical areas into the space he went outside of it. Seemed to shoulder barge Conroy a couple of times then went nose to nose with him. Just one momentary loss of discipline I guess.

Looks like from the photos of the team training today Proctor was taking part which is promising for Saturday.

Considering Procs was playing but not training recently thats a massive positive!

DC confirmed he will be on the touchline tomorrow. Been given a fine instead. Am glad they've applied some common sense there.

Announcing ours at 5pm i think but expect it to be similar, looking at the seating charts its not seen massive change, probably 2-300 a day, obviously today being payday may see more sold but 17k for both sides is a decent effort in the current climate.

Aye expecting a similar amount. Add in your sponsors and Club Wembley types etc we're probably looking at a crowd possibly approaching 40000 which is pretty good for a fourth division game. Something that shouldn't be under-rated and am sure it's the same for Mansfield is the club look like they've done a roaring trade in merchandise this week ahead of the Wembley trip. If just a few of those day-tripper types get the taste for coming more often next season out of this then that's only a good thing.

Hope so and looked a great crowd to send the coach off this morning too.
