"But of course the transfer window is far from closed and there is still a month to go. We have interests in other players, too, so it's not going to be a one-way street."
Derek Chappell continues to undo all the trust that Alwyn, Norris, Simons, Stevens, Ufton, Richard Murray and others had tirelessy built with the clubs fans over a couple of decades.Jerome Thomas

Pardew is being used as a mouthpiece in all of this, and understandably using it to gain support from the fans as the squad is rattled down to skeleton staff. Yes both Bouazza and Bailey have joined, but then both Sinclair, a pointless signing if ever there was one, and one that I am sure draws some finger-pointing from the boardroom and Stuart Fleetwood left yesterday for Cheltenham
for three months, news than wasn't quite interesting enough to make the Official Site
