BBC Sport: Dragons Look To Breathe New Fire

Interesting article, but just looking at their ins and outs and, aside from ex-Mansfield hot-shot Simon Brown, their signings leave alot to be desired whilst much of their experienced players from last season, and a couple of what were supposed to be bright young talents, have all been shown the exit door.

I think it could be a difficult season for them, but the BSP is not too difficult. An upper mid-table finish should lie in wait. Not quite enough for the play-offs, as there is alot of competition at the top of that league, but not quite a disastrous season either. If, as the article suggest, Jefferson Louis and Shaun Whalley are the strike pairig, they will struggle to score goals.

Any Goats care to agree or disagree?

The statement that the BSP is "not too difficult" is utter b*llocks! It is a highly competitive league, similar to the Championship in many ways, as the next step up is the one which fully legitimises a club.

There are six or seven clubs that will be there or there about.

Will Wrecscum be one of them? Maybe, but not certainly.

Our old friend Gary Brabin looks to be building a decent side at Cambridge. What joy to see them do Wr**h*m 2-0 with Carden and Bolland scoring.

The Goats have enough about them to finish comfortably in mid-table. Aside from the top seven or eight, the BSP is a pretty poor league.

but it always throws up a team or 2 who have done nothing for seasons then seem to hit the ground running - FGR being a classic example, small club (no disrespect as they use to be my local team when living down there) who last season had a really good go at the league and suprised quite a few outside of the area....

Saw them play Colwyn Bay and considering it took playing a unibond div1 (North) side for them to break their pre season duck on goal scoring i think thats pretty sad. Probably finish mid table, that steeley span or steel eye spam or whatever the F**K that looks like melchiot looked clueless! haha

Got to agree with your posts,from my brief recollection of our one season "vacation" in the Conference most opposition teams inevitably came to the Meadow woth Plan A..get everyone behind the ball and play for a 0-0 draw..when we scored they didn't seem to have a plan B and we inevitably won.
Looking at the Wr**h*m squad I don't think that they have the wherewithall to break down a 10 man defence

Actually...thinking back...the only Plan A that I saw that really worked was...Chester biggrin.gif ..was it Ian Turner ,on loan from Everton,that won a hyperthetical "Player of the Season" award on the back of one absolutely brilliant performance ???...wasn't it that game that meant that you only needed a point at home to Scarborough (who ??) to go up as Champions ?

Yes, we've gone down. But we have regrouped, got rid of a lot of dead wood and the squad this season is a lot stronger than last year.

I think you'll find the reason why we've not scored many goals this preseason is that we have been playing (bar colwyn bay and stafford rangers), teams of a much higher calibre.

0-0 draws against Crewe and Blackpool who are 2 and 3 leagues respectively above us, and a 1-0 win against Wolves who are 3 leagues above - all are very respectable results

You might want to compare our results with Chesters results over the past few weeks and then reconsider your opinion. Defeats against Telford !! , Swansea & Carlisle - a draw against conference north team Southport and a narrow win over conference north team Vauxhalls.

Suffice to say, that by beating Wolves, we obviously did not wait until Colwyn Bay to break our scoring duck.

You'll find that these aren't opinions, but plain facts.

Last Saturday's 6-0 demolition of BSC North side Stafford Rangers really gave many Reds a huge lift on Red Passion.
Sadly, I think the rude awakening has yet to set in.
My mate is good friends with Reds' leg end Dixie McNeil. Dixie was at the game and said something along the lines of:" Not one of those Stafford players would make it into the Flexy's Cefn Druids side". They were s**t in other words.
Even Silvio Spann scored. I hope some f****r captured it on camera because he won't score many more in his 3-year Wxm contract.
We need a goal scorer. We look better in defence. But, if you don't score goals, you don't win.

Absolute bollox.Numero uno,Little is a SH*TE manager.

They have no firepower,no goal scorer,zilch.They need a Clare,they don't have one.Its as simple as that.

They are destined to be doomed.Thank Fook.

Difference with us and you and the Conference, is we had far better players and a better manager.

Even Mark Wright saved us from the drop to the conference, something old man Little couldnt do with you.

Totally agree CB. Little is one of those managers that somehow just seems to keep getting jobs. Had the misfortune to watch his Leicester side on numerous occasions in my Uni days. Absolute dire football but he had the team organised. He seems to have lost that ability now, he had plenty of time down the road to get them organised and failed miserably.

His signings leave a lot to be desired and as you say you really do need an out and out goalscorer to win the BSP.

At least he has his monotone drawl to inspire the players and get them fired up!

it's a sad fact in the conference but without a "clare" type goal machine you'll struggle. Clueless little should have been looking for that type of player and forget about your defence, as the sloppy greg says, most teams will visit you with 10 men behind the ball so it's up to you to get stuck in and score the goals. once that happens, they will be clueless with what to do to get back on terms and you score again. it's easy, even s**tty s**tty chester city managed to do it
