Interestingly Akinfenwa with us was 23/94 games all L2. Elliott 19/93. Appiah 13/52. All 1/4 games. Pigott with 18/58 is almost at Lyle Taylor level (55/150).

Diddy I think the problem with someone like Folivi is he suits a certain type of play and probably not L1/2 football and probably not us. Would be interesting to see what his pace could do alongside a target man winning flick ons that put him into space against an isolated centre back. But then his 1v1 finishing v keepers has been poor (he could have scored 4 or 5 by now). Having said that I find it frustrating people expect strikers with us to score bucket loads at this level. Bottom of L1 teams get 1 in 4 games strikers AT BEST. We got lucky with Taylor but take a look at most L1 goal scorers records it isn’t high returns. (Those with high returns have done most of that in L2).

Its a fair point Diddy but Appiah fucking off to train with Ghana after being perennially unfit once the FA Cup cameras stopped rolling: I hope we can shift the schister off the rota in June..

Our last few games has been like the Lazarus Project and even though we haven't been great we have grounded out results. Saturday to me showed that Folovi isn't the type of striker that fits us and I would have a fit Apiah over him anytime and the simple reason is Folovi doesn't score enough for me or looks likely too. Am not knocking him as he does run his guts out but we need to score. Last two games we haven't been out played but were lucky on how we won them. I like many others turned up at Southend because at least the end of season has excitement now and we have a 50/50 chance instead of a 5% chance of staying up and the team is fighting now too.

SA doubt they'll go completely but assume they'll end up dropping rapidly - thing is how difficult is it to find a ground to use when your fan base is less than 500.

KD £422K in transfer fees? Another thing the club doesn't do a good job advertising - think about how much flak goes round about we never make any more on players.

I really hope we don't look at Appiah and Hanson and assume they'll get fit/fixed over the summer so we don't need to get anyone else in. We need at least 2 new strikers, 3 if we don't promote someone like Wood.

If Ks go out of business, are we able to get our money back from them seeing as it is ringfenced for a new ground - which they won't have need of if they go bust?

Would make me smile if so ;-)
AFCW Ltd accounts published. [Link] We made a £507k loss on c.£5m turnover in 2018 vs £50k profit on £4.9m in 2017. Wage bill went up to £3.79m from £3.25m.

Operating loss was 929k (422k received in transfer fees reduced the overal loss to 507k).
Spit - imagine when they’re all back and fit! It’ll be like getting three shit new signings.

Think I have kidney stones.
Soares I had time for cos he always made and effort and read the game, like he'd try to drop in and cover when the defenders went forward, the problem seemed to be he just doesn't have the skills anymore.

I kind of thought Soares might have been the one to have stepped up under the new way of things but seems he hasn’t.

[87.lo.gg.ed] 
Unless he has but is injured of course. But for now we must trust in the squad and hope that whenever the next bump comes along that it doesn’t completely derail us. Be awesome to get another three points ticked off next Saturday.
Ha ha. Amazing how soares, trotter and Jervis were deemed good enough under one regime. We could all see they were not and the new regime saw it too
