That's the whole thing in one sentence and basically the club's position. They know the EFL's plan - i.e. the point they'll need to navigate from - is imminent. Obviously that's a platform that might collapse in due course, but it's a firmer start than taking a punt now on different circumstances.

Also, will biosecure Premiership clubs want to play cup matches against clubs who don't operate in a biosecure environment?


Good point and not one I've seen raised anywhere.

Exactly, no point in rushing into something half-baked if they don't need to. Us fans will have to keep our money in our pockets for a while, our demand in the main isn't going to go away in the meantime.

Well, I suppose if you ask twenty fans what the club should do, you'd get a dozen answers. Some might suggest selling tickets now but wouldn't actually buy into it. One suggestion would also be to hold fire. As always, a few comments on this message board don't constitute a groundswell of opinion.

I notice Leyton Orient are back in training. Wonder if they know something everyone else doesn't!

I can see the point in not making signings now. The converse, that you want to get your pieces in position early to give you the drop on the opposition is also valid. As with much in life two opposite points of view both have merit.

However not raising funds now. There is no argument I can see for delay there. Not seeking ideas from committed supporters, who at the moment have plenty of time on their hands. Not doing that now, I can't see an argument for that either.

There are situations where you can make the decision to wait and see. There are situations where you have to act. It appears to me that some supporters and our board of directors are unable to distinguish between the two.

I wish Jamma all the best but I think we got the best season out of him for 18-19 so I'm not gutted to see him go. There were times last season where he looked knackered and was poor in the air. I don't think he'll get anywhere near 20 goals in a season for FGR.

Let's get Nouble back!

Sorry to see Jamma leave but,we misused him badly last year with the dire tactics.I hope we don’t sign a big lump to replace him,it just encourages players to kick it long too much.

Nouble was all fart and no poo.
24 goals in 144 games in his last three seasons.
10 in 52 for us and 14 in 92 for Colchester.
Compare that to Matt who has 26 goals in 97 games for us in his last two seasons.

Sad to see him go ,...... I go back 50 years and I will go to meet my maker having had some of my greatest ever days watching the County with Matt up top.

I wish him well.

Behave yourself.

One small point everyone of those 24 give or take was a cracker.
Never seen Matt out wide either. :lol:
