If there's a bad news story in the lower leagues you just know that David Conn will be there, hovering over the entrails like some malnourished Vulture.....

Might be a bit of a tweak too far, and not sure if Nicky Law is available for selection.

It is very reassuring to have an intelligent reporter, covering the malfeasance in the lower leagues, rather than concentrating on the hype of the Premier$hite.

Possibly, but he asks the easy questions rather than tackle the real issues that mean the game is being closed down by an elite of mega wealthy international investors whose intentions are far more malevolent...

Doh! Yes, sorry ... unless i meant his full name of Williamsontheright
Out of interest, how were yous seeing the midfield? I reckon as a diamond with Atangana at the back, Jay at the front and Law and Collins as the wider players. I think that could be a really good creative midfield.

The width coming from Williams! and Dickenson
Collins and Atangana being fairly disciplined and central, Bowman classic no 9 - with Law and Jay with fairly fluid roles, swapping positions, feeding off Bowman and linking up with Williams and Dickenson when attacking and offering support and cover where needed. Two number 10s i suppose, but offering a bit more defensively if the situation warrants it.

Is it not the role of a journalist to ask questions (even if they are easy)? In truth, I am not sure i agree that he is asking easy questions. He is clear to state that these are complicated issues and in truth, there may be no criminal impropriety. However, given all that is going on at Oldham, the existence of this newsworthy story does not point to good times ahead for OAFC. Its reading stories like this, that makes me glad we are the kind of club we are!
