Light in the middle of the park but looks promising.

I have been retired for 8 years now and I can confirm two things; You cannot work out how you found time to go to work and it is wonderful to be TOTALLY in charge of your life, with the wife's permission of course. Read me in the Our Town magazine.

At this stage its little disappointing ! We need a decent keeper and at least 3-4 midfield players ? the squad listed is much weaker than last season IMO but we have to hope Carl has some good signings yet to make/ announce UTA

Bit unfair, I think Hare is a decent keeper and the squad, apart from the midfield looks stronger than last year, except of course the loss of Brad.

It's not unfair, Hare is nowhere near Roberts quality good shot stopper but not good in the air or commanding and that's the view of 99% of fans ! we have lost 2 of our best starting midfield 11 with no replacements yet ! so at this stage we are worse off but I expect Carl to improve on that position He is a very good manager and We have to to trust Him UTA

Wouldn't worry too much fellas, compared to the beginning of last season, Carl's squad is superb. He's obviously working on it to improve, but this time last season he practically had three different squads from June onwards due to us switching leagues, so in comparison I would say he's way above par.

If Hare is our first choice keeper there is good reason for concern. He is simply not big enough.

Remember, because Roberts was injured so much we used 8-10 keepers last term. He may be a good keeper, but he is useless if he is in the stands watching! Just how small is Hare?

Have you lost the plot? Roberts played 40 + games for us last season and we didn't have 8-10 keepers to cover for him!

Hare is too small to be a keeper, you need presence in the nets and he ain't got it I'm afraid

Have a check on the goalkeepers we used, I do think it was 8. As for our present one, with three centre backs maybe we don't need a tall keeper.

Sorry, 7 not 8!! And the best one according to our Manager was Hare. I trust him, don't you?

Roberts was by far the best keeper we had last season.

So 6 keepers covered, 5 of them probably played a game each.

Still doesn't take away the fact that Roberts played 40 odd games and was a key player in getting promotion does it?

Read my latest on our keeper Hare and perhaps you will admit it when you are wrong too.
