The Hayes saga was not good business for the club - a low return for how much we paid him - not including the admin fiasco.

Talking about wanting to stay in Swansea I wonder if Leon brittan and Angel Rangel are willing to drop way down the leagues just to stay local maybe while doing their badges? Both have been there for so long maybe settled in the area.


Hasn't Brittan announced he's retiring but would be worth asking the question


Retiring and becoming the new club ambasador

A couple of players who we could potentially sign that would make our starting 11 / squad stronger ?

Aaron Martin ....released by Oxford
Barry Fuller .......released by Wimbledon
Charlie Clough....released by Barnet
Drew Talbot....released by Chesterfield
John Akinde....transfer listed by Barnet ( probably way out of our price range)

We definitely need a GK to challenge Joe Day, and this should be our first signing.
In 58 games under Flynn, Day has started virtually every game, and we've let in 75 goals.
I know footy is a team game, but that's not a good record. He has no competition for his place and that's not OK.

There are variables of course but in any analysis the test of a goalkeeper is how many goals he concedes.

Newport County have a defensive record which is average. There are teams who concede more in League Two and teams which concede less.

I have never understood those who claim that Joe Day is the best keeper in League Two. He isn't. However neither is he the worst. He is a competent lower division goalkeeper.

Imagine how fabulous he'll be when he's got someone breathing down his neck for his starting place! :cheers:

I agree to the extent that it would be good if there was someone to challenge for his place. I can't really see Joe Day being fabulous.

Certain fans will have to find a new scapegoat if so.

Thought it was reported on here that a few Morons booed Frank off at 1 away game to which he was not too happy.
Thought Robbie complained on Twitter whatever that is.
Is that media?
Think it was at 1 contributor only.
The fella has had good games and poor games no idea why he gets picked on by a few of you on a regular basis but that's football fans for you everywhere

Nouble’s abuse has been much worse and is bang out of order sometimes. You think willmott is bad because people think he is average You obviously haven’t seen the tweets sent to frank after defeats. Never once seen him react. If he reacted at a game do you blame him?
