We've been down here since 2008. Remember 2008?
  • We had a Labour government
  • Nobody had any opinion about the EU
  • George W Bush was president of the USA
  • You could only just get an iPhone with 3G on it
  • They were still using Space Shuttles
  • Michael Jackson was still alive (as was Ricardo Montalbán)
  • The Bill was still on the telly
  • Woolworths was still open
  • Neco Williams had his 7th birthday party
  • Lewes and Northwich Victoria were still in The Conference
  • ...as were Crawley Town and Burton Albion
  • Forest Green Rovers still played in black and white stripes
  • ...and Salford City still played in orange
  • AFC Halifax Town had only just been formed
  • AFC Chester City weren't even a thing
Of course "this is the year". If we don't say that every season, what's the point? We all know Wrexham aren't getting out of the Vauxhall Conference, EVER. There's more chance of my wife coming back with the kids* than Wrexham actually getting promoted.

Excuse us all, but THIS IS THE YEAR!!!

* Added for LOLZ. My wife hasn't left me, and she hasn't taken the kids. Just in case anybody took that bit seriously. Yes, you're right, that is a bit dark.
I doubt many people had even heard of the Schmuck Jeremy Corbyn.

Few clubs down here want Josh Scott on loan from Mansfield, striker, we are starting to produce some decent players in our academy so like Jimmy Knowles at County he’s definitely worth a shot.

Who was that player who would always be on trial at a variety of clubs at this level every summer without fail? I remember he was at York and then we had him on trial about 3 summers in a row, can't remember if we ever signed him. He was a proper dick too. Danny something perhaps....

...this will bug me now....

His Wiki confirms what I thought. He's the trialist king.

"Went on trial", "after impressing on trial", "following a trial" etc etc.

Not what I expected to wake up to this morning. Guess that finally puts any Ricky Miller rumour to bed finally.

Ross McCormack to Aldershot.

Edit - announced 5 mins later

Still available on a free transfer, since he left Peterborough I think. According to his Twitter he lives locally, in Farnborough, and has been linked with us all summer. I think someone on Shotsweb said he can’t play until January so could be the reason why he’s still unattached, as he could surely do a job at this level for pretty much all of us down here.

He's been at our pre season friendlies interacting with the players and management team. He's also been going on runs with some fans around the local area. I guess the rumours that he can't play yet are true and we will snap him up in January.

He lives in Hertfordshire and lost his driving licence so travelling is a challenge. He's also playing Sunday football for my mate's team in Stevenage.

absolute tit that bloke. We had him and then think he went to Torquay in the conf south after us.

God knows where he is now
We had him before our trip to the regionals, he was actually fantastic in the dozen or so games he played for us and was instrumental in our miraculous escape from the drop that year.

He left after an "incident" with some of the other players (including serial moron Ben Gerring) who objected to him telling them they were shit and a disgrace to the club and league after they downed tools for the last game against Guisely which sent you guys down (sorry about that :(). He wasn't wrong!

Been training with Aldershot mostly and contract offered. Playing kick about stuff on Sundays as someone else eluded to.


He has a few behind the scenes issues to see to first before Aldershot / Miller accept it, or rescind it.

Surprised to see Mauro Vilhete sign for Wingate and Finchley today. Played for Wealdstone on Tuesday night in a shambolic pre-season defeat to St Albans and thought he might feature again today.

Our fans are stunned by this. As am I. I can only assume he has been told, possibly by Brennan, that he needs to prove his fitness before receiving a contract. Which perhaps isn't surprising given his record.

Scott's only been at Mansfield since June,it was Pools who brought him on.
Great player though.
Another good lad leaving the club,because it's a shambles off the pitch.

Claiming an ex Pools youth star as their own produce, tut tut tut, like you say, another that's slipped through the net for nothing, can't blame any of them like, other than Luca Murphy who I hope has a dog shite career ahead of him.

Jake Beesley, anyone? We're rumoured to be signing him from Solihull. Didn't get much of a chance at Classless of '92, but seemed to get in the goals for Bradford PA on loan a couple of years ago...

I didn’t realise, although my point is still valid.

The club does seem to be trying to sign players around that age now too, sending them out on loan with hope they can become a first team player in a year or two.

To be honest neither did I, we've had that many leave and go on to better things you lose track.
