Reading Flitcroft's comments re how he monitors the players, makes me think that under Williams we just turned up and played - or not, as the case may be. Whatever it was, it appears very unprofessional in comparison.

Yeah, the more you hear from Flitcroft, the worse it makes Williams look. I didn't think that was possible.

Obviously too early to get carried away but with Flitcroft you get the impression we'll give ourselves the very best chance we have of winning most weeks. With Williams that never seemed to be the case (Power and his recruitment of feathers dressed in football kits takes a portion of the blame here).

I'm bored of pre season now. Want to see his stamp on a team played out in competitive fixtures. Don't think we'll be bullied out of matches too often which was a big part of our ineptude.

Give me a pacey forward and a bit more flair and I'll be convinced we are looking at a good season despite my opening sentence.

I see someone BTL in the Adver has suggested Vigs turned up late for training 3 times and DF fined the whole squad

Not that I'm suggesting it's true of course, but if such a thing did happen I can see that being the action he'd take.

any idea who scored mate
Sorry had to pop out, and no at the time there was no word on either scorer, obviously turns out it was Iandolo!

Not a bad result TBH 1-1 against a tough side like we will be facing this season in this league, shame about Ajose not coming but I don't think it was ever on the cards despite us being interested.

I think we are still a few players short and another winger and striker now must be a priority along with a few more squad players all over the pitch.

Sounds like Flickers and Futcher will take no slacking from the players which is bloody good after the rabble we had last season.

Onwards and upwards, fingers crossed for a bit more of an effort from the players this year.

I'm beginning to think the recruitment is nearly finished. Those fringe players from last season seem to be integral to Flitcroft - Conor Thomas, Iandolo and even young Twine and Tom Smith look likely to be match day players.

If he can make Conor Thomas into an effective footballer he's a fucking genius. Fittest player at the club, apparently. Maybe he was just another victim of Williams' general shitness

I get the feeling (rather than I think) that what has started to play out at SN1 does have similarities to when a certain PDC took over. However, in this case it is measured, without the ballyhoo, ego stroking and with a real sense of longevity and sustainability in mind. In this case DF could have reasonably said to power, "You'll not win anything playing a bunch of kids". Hmmmm, where have I heard that before? "Oh and overpaid billy big bollocks loanees".

Obviously a mainly useless comparison but Newport beat Supermarine 4-3 today

Can some one tell me who the bloke in the middle is? He's in loads of the pictures of pre-season - is he one of the trialists or one of the young lads?

OK, thanks. I apologize for my ignorance, I've only ever seen him on brief highlight clips as I have yet to view him 'in the flesh' as it were...

I hadn't seen him before either, I thought it was a young Pat Sharp.
