Yeah, but we’re a long way away from where we were when we had those players. We’re a league one team and Graham is an excellent player to have in our position.

He was good in the championship too mind. :D

Re: Rumours, wishlists and general tomfoolery

Clubs vote to shorten the summer transfer window so it shuts on 9th August.

Makes sense to get all that nonsense out of the way before the season starts.

Re: Trump .... you're on

It was a tongue in cheek remark - but within reach doesn't mean physical contact. ;)

Re: Trump .... you're on
