    Fylde have been in great form ever since we beat them just before Christmas. They then stuffed us back ten days later. I can’t feel too bad about that, still gotta love Davey Challinor.

    It’s looking very tight for that top spot, it’ll be us and Macc for sure, probably going right down to the wire.

    Saw that gubbing they gave you just as you were getting a head of steam up. You'll make a better fist of league football than we have what with knowing what it means if you finally make it back.

    Sad to hear that Kieron Durkan, once of Wrexham, Stockport, Macclesfield, Rochdale and Swansea died today at the age of 44. He once put Wrexham a goal up at Old Trafford.

     
  4. Orient are still doing their best to give supporters palpatations and look nervously over their shoulder at the bottom 4.

    After a run of improved performances once Justin Edinburgh had turned up as head coach, we’ve reverted to our sorry selves again. Not creating much, missing what chances we have, and awful defending.We even managed to screw up in the Trophy quarter final from 3-0 up...

    Just need to scrape over the line and put the season behind us now. Trouble is, half the duds we signed last summer are on 2 year contracts, so budget-wise it might be difficult to rebuild effectively unless we can bin the lightweights off first.

    So much for the fantasy of catching the Macc lads. We’ll just have to settle for getting the last point to secure second.

    What a roller coaster today's match against Ebbsfleet was. Behind then level, back to being behind, then in front and extending the lead. A player being sent off, threats from the ref that the match would be abandoned if any one threw anymore paper at the Ebbsfleet goalie. This must have been an entertaining match to watch for the neutrals on BT Sports but Tranmere don't half make a meal out of trying to win a match. Roll on next week and Wembley and lets hope for a better result than last season.

    hmm, what are the odds of finding a pub showing the National League playoff final...in Avignon? I'm guessing, long.

    Reffed out of it again! Well, that was unfortunately a nailed on red, silly Ridehalgh. All you changes made too, not looking too clever but I still believe.

    Blimey, James Norwood with a header! They were quite rare as I recall.

    Got some strange looks off people sat in an ice cream shop in Arles, and later on a rail station platform, as I suddenly jump up and cheer.

    ‘Aah, anglais....aah, ballon’

    It’s good to be back

    What a game. The atmosphere was great and the team looked better prepared than last year. Bye bye National League and hello Division 2.

    Was shocked to read on our forum (thread congratulating you and our old boys) that James Norwood is a public school boy. Always a bit of a knob but that's him right off my christmas card list despite being our top scorer.

    Ofstead need to get in there sharpish.
     
  22. So, congratulations to Macclesfield & Tranmere on their promotion. Can’t say any of the other contenders were consistently better over the season to have deserved it instead.

    And commiserations to the 4 clubs taking the drop to the regional step 2. Feel for the Torquay fans who have had to watch their club be destabilised by property development shenanigans, but on the pitch none of the quartet can have any complaints.

    As for Orient, we finished mid-table where we deserved after an understandably hurried late pre-season when we had to hope a complete newly assembled team would gel. Davis as initial gaffer was quickly found out and rightly sacked. We improved defensively under Justin Edinburgh and the loan of Ebou Adams from Norwich U23 gave us some bite in midfield. Hope we can hang onto him, but I’ll be surprised if he doesn’t get offers from EFL2/1 clubs.

    We’ll be better next season & hopeful of competing for top spot, but if our form goes backwards again & don’t finish top 7 it’ll be a huge disappointment.
