It's a weird one with Stockley, he's having a great season however he has missed loads of chances, he's getting far more opportunities this season, last season he was often feeding off of scraps, most games this season he is presented with 2, 3, 4, 5 very good chances.
Almost as if he's a mid table League 2 striker......

Sorry. Being facetious. Of course I'm a massive Stockley fan but there is a reason he is in League 2. We'll miss him terribly when he goes though as there are no other goals in the side.

Is Shockley on £400k because I cant see where this money has been spent...?
Perhaps you can't, but that is what we have been told over and over again in the last three years. Until the Grimes money we couldn't afford the wages for a £1.2 million budget and we had to get the begging bowl out and ask the PFA for a loan. That was as recently as 2014. It's a fact that we can only afford £1.05 million on our natural turnover. We need extra income from big Cup games or player sales. No Cup money this season and our best chance of money from player sales in January or at the end of the season is Ollie leaving Brentford. Their form is even worse than ours at the moment and you would assume that they will want to hang onto one of their best players. If your incorrect spelling of Jayden's surname is deliberate I think you're being very harsh. Obviously he is lacking confidence at the moment, as is the team in general, but he never hides, he often gets left all alone up front and gets battered for his troubles. We'll be in a real mess if he goes in January.

Matt Taylor needs to look at his tactics away from home because he’s getting it terribly wrong at the moment, today was just like Colchester, Crawley, Grimsby where we have hardly got in the opposition half for the first 45 minutes....as the commentary team said the Bury goal had been coming for a long time....second half sounded good but we were chasing the game by then and the damage had already been done before the break.

No, it was a Freudian slip after that penalty (true)

Felt bad after the game but looking forward to the match reports because we actually sounded good on the radio 2nd half.

The run is horrific but it's League 2 so you're always in with a shout of the playoffs if you can stay in contact. If we can start winning at home again we'll be able to get some confidence back.

Onwards and upwards (y)

We are having a bad run,but we are still in touch at the right end of the table,Christ just look at Yeovil,a win will come along soon and probably another one after that,it will come right,and b6 the sounds of it although we didn’t play well 1st half,we should have put the pen away and scored with the stockley chances,so it is all to play for and a long way to go !UTC

Just imagine if we hadn't
1) Given players last weekend off
2) Rested most of the team in midweek
3) Changed penalty takers

Well at least people can't say 'but we are still in the play offs' any more.
