No official word from the club yet, but he has pretty much confirmed he has left the club after the game today, said he can’t play on the 3G with injuries and our fans hammering him in the bar afterwards, we have basically got no strikers now, Chris Lait still out, Gregg Smith playing in defence and Tyrell Waite just back from a 3 game suspension, we really need another striker, and although he was involved in the 6-0 mauling by Kidsgrove, I would get Jaanai Gordon in, has a point to prove, played at a higher level, we really need something.

Tell you what you couldn’t make this up - we have become an embarrassment to this league and a laughing stock - Feel much better Mrs Argus has just passed me a Micky Fin - have to laugh or what’s left as a Supporter

Are half of them injured? Beginning to have my doubts

You can think I'm wrong, but that's no reason to quit thinking.

Promotion and many other squads we’ve had since 2002 would walk through walls for their managers at the time - could well be that current squad or some of them won’t do this for DG - genuine and deliberating injuries players will have no choice and can’t play - with other injuries and possible recovery time who knows - but what’s for sure DG ain’t building any type of bond with the players?

With regard to Taylor and the plastic pitch, do we think there is a grain of truth there. Some players in RL won’t play on Widnes’ pitch and there is a thought about injuries behind it, especially in older players. I know the 3G is going but does it need considering in terms of recruitment?

The posts are still there, he has just retweeted a load of stuff since, he said in one comment he has left the club, we will probably find out next Saturday when we play Bedworth, probably around the time they announce the teamsheet.

Taylor is no loss.I guess Smith will move up front with Waite which leaves us needing a central defender.

As i said on a previous post Taylor did not set the world alight. Brought on a whim and spent more time on his bum and offered very little as a striker. If you don't want to fight for the cause then bye.... this could apply to many of the players. The dictionary calls this the DG effect.

We have needed decent central defenders for a long time but DG has insisted on bringing in forwards.

I agree about the centre halves. Jemson is only young and may well make a decent player but Joel Kettle has had a Morley season (fell off a cliff confidence wise). Looked good last year without much help. He heads it well, he’s strong and he played well for a while when he arrived but his confidence after some bad mistakes, combined with injury troubles and bad results that have affected everyone have led to him having a nightmare year.
Morley seems to have recovered and is doing alright at Telford so there’s hope for Joel who I like but I thought he was going to be the big, domineering centre half we could build a defence round and him not filling that role has left a huge void.

I would consider making Smith skipper too - very vocal and passionate, encouraging of the young lads and a 100% effort bloke wherever he plays and whatever his limitations. I don’t think captains transform teams but would be a step in the right direction for me.

Agree with that Pricey2. He showed that against Stratford.

Can’t understand why Verma and Kettle chosen as captains - not leaders and no outward passion and chat to get others going. Smithy great choice Pricey - shows shedloads of passion on pitch and not afraid to shout at colleagues on pitch - yesterday though even he seemed consumed by the events around him and resigned to defeat even when for a very short period we were level.

taylor's under contract so him saying he's left is a bit bloody stupid

Ironic is it not - Taylor’s been all about I’m going to put my body where it hurts because hey that’s the guy I am - his comments not mine and bless the little snowflake whilst accepting not getting great service has still managed to fluff his lines up front on many occasions- his final departing comment about not willing to lie about injuries and the 4G (sic) pitch as muddled as the amount of mud we have on our pitch - if he deems to turn up on Saturday and gracefully accept the £750 weeks wages - plea from us fans - stop falling on your arse and pretending you’ve been elbowed every five minutes and actually deliver what we’re paying you for - novel idea

Is he really on £750 a week do you reckon?

Got to be close Skipps - We evidently made him an offer he couldn’t refuse when we dragged him away from Stratford. If not close mate I’m sure I will be politely corrected on here


Posted By: Skippo10

In fairness he could have sat on the treatment table picking that up though, or close to it, I’m certain I read he had signed a contract till 2020, I think that was what made the offer attractive in the sense he was contracted next season also, if he has given all that up, then he must be given a bit of credit, as many would just have bleed the club dry.

In herald, reported he won't be involved and is finalising his release from contract. not been officially signed off yet, hence silence from club

Back in the Asante thread before the Chester move, you tore him apart for sticking around and taking the money when it wasn’t working out. It hasn’t worked out for Taylor and he’s leaving so he can off and he’s a disgrace is he? Added to your self reported rant at the manager at Kettering and some handbags spat at Hednesford, do you think you have some anger management issues? Tfc frustrates me immensely at times but it’s a game at the end of the day.

We have been a club in decline for 6 or so seasons - Asante and Taylor have assisted in our demise in equal measures - as to latter if you market yourself as the tough kid on the block and go out of the club as a snowflake your a disgrace in my eyes I’m afraid - please Pricey defend that? - as to the hand bags spat at Hens and Kettering - worst pinch points since I’ve been following TFC in over 17 years - whoops apologies from me for showing some emotion - and weird- both managers were sacked so soon afterwards- oh hum

Each to their own as they say Pricey. If you choose to keep quiet and let all the sh*t go as 'just a game' that is absolutely your right. It is also the right of the likes of Argus and myself to take a more vocal approach and let our feelings be known to a manager or player that is not performing. The other side of that coin is of course that the people that we address in this manner also have the right to defend themselves, which Greene did in very strong terms, and that is fair enough. It's a passionate game, and sometimes that passion can get the better of you, but better that than us all sitting quietly applauding mediocrity or worse.

I am at a loss as to how telling Mike Taylor to off, he’s a disgrace on an Internet forum offers him much chance to reply but still... and as for calling someone a snowflake, me it’s like finding a copy of the daily mail logging on here sometimes...

...as for managers getting sacked soon afterwards, clearly you must have some sort of special power!

And thank god your managerial campaigns have come to fruition. Some of us were a bit miffed 12 months ago languishing in mid table in the conference north under AM - thank god your campaign got him booted. Been a dream since then basically.

Sorry mate - feel please to attack me and my comments - l have absolute no problems with that - however Pricey you have defended Asante and now Taylor - what have they actually done for us? - really getting confused - have you seen something on the pitch they’ve actually done for us? - as to Taylor - getting bored with you not responding to my previous posts - he came in as the tough boy (his comments) and goes out in a whimper - He’s not delivered on a daily basis - not been an EXPRESS for us - can TELEGRAPH his moves - not been a STAR for us or made the SUN shine - come on Pricey look in the MIRROR and honestly say he doesn’t deserve the criticism - and dont get your comment about Taylor having no chance of reply - hey haven’t you noticed he’s walked out on us - fortunately there’s not a paper called - “Falling on Ones Arse and Cheating on Elbow in Face”

Taylor swaggered into the club claiming to be our John Wayne, and minced out looking like Charles Hawtry. Bye Mike, you won't be missed.

Argus,
You regularly start or end posts with comments along the lines of any other opinions out there as if you’re inviting a discussion and you and I regularly disagree and it’s like you don’t want an alternative opinion.
Asante scored plenty of goals before coming to tfc and has scored a few quickly for Chester before getting injured. Taylor got to double figures for Stratford before coming here so I think both have ability. Neither move went very well here but after a handful of games, both were getting slated. Either these players catch some curse as they walk into the Lamb or there is something more to it. A constantly changing squad probably doesn’t help and in my opinion, and quite rightly not yours if you disagree, getting slated more or less as soon as you arrive doesn’t help either.

As for the Taylor interview, the bloke comes into the club and gets asked by the local paper what he can bring. So he can’t claim to be 6’7” and head it like Crouchy, he can’t claim to have Vardy in his heyday pace so he goes for something along the lines of i’m going to put myself about and give it everything. It’s pretty standard football waffle and the way to judge a newspaper story is how remarkable the opposite story would have been. If he’d come in and said to the paper he didn’t know what he could bring and didn’t think it was going to go very well, he’d have been getting pelters even before the end of the traditional two game honeymoon period afforded to new players before they are branded lazy or sh*te.
That would be my take on that.
It hasn’t worked out - I personally don’t want to tell him to off and call him a disgrace is all.

Could have sat tight and milked us for the money he was on, so fair play to him clearing off
