Posh have said he can go, if a suitable agreement is reached. I know he has a criminal trial in April and he’s always been a bit of a live wire but he’s also a devastating goal machine at non league level.

Worth a punt on a 3 month loan?

No, because if sanctioned against, Micky Mellon might then have to alter the first team for the last 2-3 games, which could possibly unsettle form at a potentially crucial time.



Then I ate his Liver.......... with some baked beans and a can of coke.

scored 60 goals for Dover in his 2 year spell there, his career goals tally total is 125 goals in 254 games, not bad at all. he sure knows where the goalposts are and runs at and terrorizes defences.

It's a tricky one this as the goalscoring figures certainly stack up. It does not bother me that he did the usual cupping of ears, fingers to lips etc to the SWA faithful at PP earlier this season. we love it when our guys Cookie and Nors do something in similar cheeky vein at opposition grounds like Cookie at Wrexham last year and there is an old saying if you can't take it then don't dish it out. What troubles me and I suspect would not sit well with the club image that MP and NP are trying to cultivate is his history of scrapes with the police past and present. Although on the previous case, which had a racist element, it appears that he was acquitted, Luton were so concerned about it that they effectively sacked him and let him go to Dover even though he is a local lad who had just scored 15 goals. And now it's about being drunk in a Range Rover and again allegedly assaulting, this time the Old Bill, ... Posh and Luton don't want him, is he worth the trouble? IMHO NO although I know there are probably lots out there who will say this is all irrelevant, he is innocent until proven guilty and if he could score us into League 2 then that's all that matters. Those fans are just as entitled to welcome him with open arms as I am to take a different stance. We all have our views but in the end I guess the ones that matter are those of MM and the Palioses.

Can’t afford to have miller if we are paying his psychiatrist as well but banks might well be cost effective because if OAFC don’t really want him he may take a cut in wages to come here for first team football and possible promotion
That would keep crowds coming in and just squeeze out an other body on loan to compensate

Shocking if true and unfortunately I could well believe it.

That Taylor thing is not true. Banks was called back as Oldham lost all their loan players they had in. Believe some delay/problems with getting their transfer ban lifted due to their pending take over.

I very much doubt Taylor is on high wages and I would say there is some money there to strengthen in January. If mangan goes we have those wages, and the wages of DMH and Banks if they don't come back.

Only 3 players needed imho. Centre Mid, Winger and a striker

People have got to remember that we are non league and therefore cannot overload on players. Gone are the days of having cover for every position. Versatility is the key atm

According to Oldham today, we were only paying a percentage of Banks' wages, and if that's the case, I would imagine it was the same for DMH?

We are led to believe there is no money at the club, so I fear any chance of getting those two back here is very slim indeed.

Were now back to square one with the added problem of Scott Davies and possibly Buxton both out through injury.

Unless Palios throws caution to the wind and goes all out to gain promotion, then the best we can hope for is another chance via the dreaded play offs!

When I heard the phrase 'TOP 8 PLAYING BUDGET' more than once earlier this season I assumed that was PR Spin Doctor speak for there are 7 clubs in the NL with a bigger playing budget than ours........so our current position of 7th is just about right. But I will keep the faith and keep putting my money where my mouth is and will be at PP next season in my season ticket seat, I hope to see EFL 2 matches. Do others with more knowledge than me know how our budget stacks up against others? Maybe I read too much into the 'TOP8' quote.....and I am way off the mark, happy to be corrected!

Buxton is fine and only had a slight headache at the end of the game. Davies is only long term injury worry. Both tollitt and Wallace back in a couple of weeks (the latter I doubt will last longer than one game)

I think we'll have another season to get through before worrying increased burger prices.

With even less of a budget though more than likely.... we could do with some Chinese investment super noodle quick!

Of course the investment will come, in the form of a fleet of rickshaws and drivers to take people to away games, as it will be cheaper than paying for 2-3 coaches plus drivers and fuel costs (Sm7).

Lol.. sadly rickshaws are a thing of the past on the streets of HK. You can still see the very occasional rickshaw over in Macau but they are usually sitting idle, along with the elderly n skint driver, outside Macau's oldest casino, the casino Lisboa. On the very rare occasions that they do get a fare it is 9 times out of 10 from a drunken Western tourist that has just had a win on the roulette n black jack tables..I did once see a frail n elderly Chinese rickshaw driver trying his best to escort three qrotesquely overweight Americans around the old town in Macau. That was a sight to behold lol. Its frightening to see how much Macau has changed over the years, and changed for the worse. Lost a lot of the Meditteranean feel that the place used to have when it was a Portuguese colony. Its like a mini Las Vegas now with big glitzy casinos and uncouth parvenu money mad mainland gamblers everywhere..its a long time since ive been to the casino Lisboa, good memories of sitting in a small bar on one of the lower floors of the casino ogling the hordes of sexy n good looking mainland chinese prostitutes that would patrol the casino looking for punters that have just had a win on the tables and are looking for a way to celebrate their winnings lol.

If our finances are poor then it calls into question to an even greater degree the decision to give Wallace an extended contract. By minutes on the pitch he has been very expensive and as many predicted this it was forseeable
