    doesn’t look to bad. I’d say nine of them would be potentially playing if we had a fully fit squad. Bench looks weak though.

    Style of football and enjoyment of going v points

    Last season we were a joy to watch much of the time especially with the high energy and high press. It wasn’t long ball per se is was just very direct and positive. I think it suited us.

    I think he has more than earned it and is a great man manager for this squad. Also safely first isn’t a bad way to win a tourno. However I still feel is is tactically suspect in real time. Pre game he does his homework and generally has a good game plan but when the opposition switch tactics...

    Evans to Stevenage...

    Agree with all of that but that is with evans at the helm with players brought in for his system. If we suddenly bring in a non league manager with a different system , mid season who has limited contacts and budget the odds are we won’t won’t do as well.

    Evans to Stevenage...

    How does the compensation work? Is it set or negotiated. If it’s negotiated then it will be less for a unhappy manager who clearly wants out as opposed to someone settled. Maybe evans is doing his best to lower the compensation fee for his new employers?

    Evans to Stevenage...

    Stevanage currently 12 points of 7th and 28-1 to go up if anyone fancies it. If evans goes there with a fat budget I can easily see them pushing on from January.
