    To be fair, I think Vas could have come back to us at the end of the season when he was loaned out again, but it looks like Gav didn't need/want him.

    Annoying, as I really liked him, but I don't think anyone was missing him on that Thursday night against Enfield.

    Meadows aren't top of my Christmas card list, but in fairness to them player recruitment is solely down to Gavin and Kadi. Players getting signed up or not signed up is Gav's decision and his decision alone.

    I highly doubt our season will live or die by the decision to pass up Vas. I should think keeping the two Ibra's is more of a priority.

    Depends if Gavin is given the tools (cash) to recruit

    This summer is very different to last in my view. At the end of last season there were probably no more than six players I thought we should keep - Preston, Drage, Pinnock, Ash, Nyren, RMP. Meaning we had to recruit about a dozen new faces. This time, I'd genuinely be happy with no changes whatsoever. Starting the season knowing our best XI and formation - and it being that XI - will be worth 15 points.

    And to the best of our knowledge he now has been. A lot of players don't pick sides early on in the summer, either. Most of them, understandably, wait to see what comes in and then choose a club. The ones that sign up quickly tend to be the ones offered good contracts and don't want to risk missing out on the guaranteed income. There'll still be lots of good players available.

    On another note, I don't know if the agreement is still in place, but Palace U23s were using CH as their home ground at the start of the season. They used to use Bromlei and they did a brilliant job of signing up a lot of their released players - a fair few of which have become regular first teamers. I don't know how they did it, if they managed to get them purely because of familiarity, but I hope we could capitalise on the agreement in a similar way.

    Agreed. I think the new formation works really well but it means there's a lot of competition for those forward places. I thought Karagiannis did really well but I don't know he'd be a massive improvement on any of those we have tbh, and I wouldn't have him as first pick ahead of Sekajja.

    I'd see him more as a quicker and more mobile alternative to Carew behind the two strikers in the formation we used over the second half of the season. While he was here he was playing in a front three as one of two wide men either side of Dumaka.

    Yeah he could play there or in the front two - don't get me wrong I think he's a good player and would definitely get some time. I don't think we desperately need him though (depending on who stays obviously), I certainly wouldn't be getting too worried about him going elsewhere.

    He basically did the perfect job by a loan signing, but the team evolved and grew stronger still after he left. I suspect either one or both parties wasn't that interested in anything more lasting otherwise he'd have come back in March when he went to Tonbridge.

    I was told by DD that Vas was desperate to stay with us at the time Maidstone recalled him, and when he was soon back on their bench he was hopeful of a move back to us, but as Pink Panther says, the team had grown stronger by then

    This for sure. Camara is going to feature a lot more this year I'm certain. Mo Mo showed promise earlier in the season too.

    Re Palace Dev Squad, don't think they're playing at CH this year, shame really!

    That message is a bit vague. I hope the announcement will be a new contract for Gavin and his assistants.

    Do you think Gavin would be working hard for next season if he wasn't staying? Genuine question.

    Maybe I've misread the message as I don't use Twitter and I'm not familiar with how it works or what those hashtagged words mean. It appears to come from the DHFC account, so I've read it as DHFC saying they're working hard for next season and will be making an announcement regarding Gavin on Friday. Is it DHFC working hard behind the scenes, or Gavin working hard behind the scenes?

    ^ to be fair when you share a tweet on this forum is squashes the formatting, so the quote may not be as clear! But that's the line from Gav. I think we should be pretty confident he's sticking around!

    Maybe a rich philanthropist is buying the club, before gifting it to fan ownership with a hefty endowment and capital improvement budget.

    Not sure what to think, is this a good thing? If he betters last seasons goals tally I'll be surprised.

    I don't really know what this means but Nathan Green has been invited to the Jamie Vardy Academy:

    From the V9 website:

    "The V9 academy is the brainchild of England International and Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy. His aim is to discover non-league talent and promote them to the professional game while providing them with a unique educational experience into what it takes to play at the top level.

    The V9 Academy will hold its first intake of players at the City Football Academy on June 5th – 9th June 2017, the training complex of Manchester City FC located on the Etihad Campus. The academy will host 42 successful applicants who will be split into 3 teams of 14 players for a 5-day residential programme.

    A host of professional clubs will be represented at the V9 Academy ranging from top domestic British clubs and clubs from further afield in Europe and beyond, all in search of the next Jamie Vardy.

    Each successful applicant will be evaluated technically, tactically, physically, and mentally and will leave the academy with an individual development plan to help progress their game further on leaving the academy.

    The V9 Academy will also be filmed as a Sky Sports documentary and give a ‘behind the scenes’ look into how coaching, sport science, fitness methodology, talent ID and mental training is carried out at the top level."

    So in short, Nathan is looking to get a move to a professional club. They had over 1,500 applicants apparently, so fair play to him for getting in. Let's just hope he comes back...

    The V9 guys first came to Champion Hill for the Royston game and highlighted him as a talent and kept tabs on him, they also came to watch him when we played Lowestoft in April and filmed his movements during the game
