Everything I've heard about Hopper is basically the same assessment.

Works hard, runs himself into the ground, but does 't score enough goals



Sounds like Ollie all over again!!

Let's give Spencer a chance eh?

Very easy to say we should have signed .... and how does anyone know we didn't try either. Why the hate for Spencer?

In many ways, they're still strangers and, as such, should be given time to understand both the tactics required and what their team mates are likely to do so that they can anticipate what to do next themselves.

It's the hype that's brought all this cr*p to the message board. In my opinion, it should make absolutely no difference how the team fares. We should be there to support them whatever. If anyone wants to glory hunt, go support Chelsea or Man City!

So me stating my opinion which the last time i checked was a what a message board was for means im bringing cr*p to the message board.
This also means i want to glory hunt and should support Chelsea or Man City ?


At no point have i slated Spencer and if he were to play i would be behind him 100%.

I still firmly believe we should have signed (if possible)
Porter instead.

No rant farming for Stagsnet "likes" will change my mind.

Forget Hopper, he ain't that keen if he can't make up his mid in 4/5 days.

Move on to the next objective.

Thought Vassel's move to Bristol had gone through. Thought I saw £1.2m.

There's no chance they'll be letting Hylton go now that Vassel's gone.

Have to say, I'm relieved that we missed out on Hopper. With Spencer and Rose we surely have enough industry up top. I know it's what every club wants, and we have probably left it too late (somehow!?), but I feel like a 20 goal striker would complete the squad and provide us with a great chance this year and the foundations of a team for next year (hopefully in L1)!

He didn't even play against L2 Notts on Tuesday night so he's not going to get much game time there either.

I suspect we weren't offering enough in wages to satisfy him.
We might win against Accrington next time.

The fact that, (given he is not getting a regular place at his current club), he did not jump at the chance to join us, makes me think he is not the man for us.

Will tomorrow ever come? I have a feeling we will hear something pre match tomorrow or Monday. I love this season already for excitement and that's before the season has really began. COYS
