Don't think have ever seen a player in so much turmoil in watching football over the last 55 years - absolute bags of skills - footbaling brain and those said skills -but 100% frustrated -   can turn a game in a second and in his defence teams are closing him down now knowing a job well done because we we have little other invention in team. How quickly it has moved on since XMAS period - when.even the Chuckle Brothers most look back at some of their comments and cringe slightly in attempting to defend the indefensible in his attitude and performance. Question l ask is simple do we keep him ( if we can and want to)- caused great friction in changing room with key players but whilst not.naming them most have gone off boil big time in performance during the latter stages. Plastic pitch coming up and need ball players - views very welcome - seriously in my humble opinion no idea - change views every day. At least The Chuckle brothers will be able to comment on a topic at last.

Half the reason players such as Daniels and Durrell are at our level is because of work rate and attitude. Keep them onside and you'll be fine. If Daniels was in our side in the business end of last season we would've been in the playoffs. As for Durrell, keep. We won't be finding playmakers like them two every season to bail us out of what would've been midtable mediocrity imo.

Durrell will be gone next season. has it occurred to anyone that he may be the reason others are off the boil due to his attitude towards them ?, just a thought.

Difficult one here Pinks - Some times team mentality can be strengthened by having a bad apple in room/team - suppose just how derisive that bad apple is and think if ED Is still continuing to cause major unrest in changing room I will be glad if he goes - can't see him going up a level because word obviously gets out about his negatives. Just hope he does not sign for another fellow North team - guaranteed he will score two hat tricks against us next season!

The whole Durrell thing bemuses me. Rumours and innuendos abound on here about players he has spectacularly fallen out with but no names, anonymous sources, no specifics all the time.

If he is as horrendous in the dressing room as some would have us believe then he will be gone next season but until someone who was there tells me something specific, I'm not going to take that for granted either way.

What I do know is he's our top scorer, our most creative player and anyone who doesn't think he's been one of our top performers all round the last couple of months is watching a different side from me.

Not all people have the same temperament and from what I can summise, he's been riled when our form dipped and we were losing consistently, riled when he was playing below his best and rightly being substituted, riled when his effort was questioned and apparently also had a big sweary outburst at an away game when Connor Taylor played two or three rubbish passes.

These are all things that would annoy anyone. If you're a steady eddie character like Gareth Southgate or someone, you take these in your stride and if you're Zlatan Ibrahimovic you go absolutely apesh*t. Durrell's somewhere between the two.

Elliott has shown more frustration than someone like Connor Taylor who willingly scoots off every time he's subbed and shows an excellent team attitude in these situations but for the last three seasons I've been ripping my hair out at some of Connor Taylor's football (never his effort in fairness) and if that also infuriates teammates then I'm not surprised.

I would like to keep Elliott and having signed him for two clubs now, I'm guessing AM would too but whether we will is another matter. He won't struggle for a club next season if he does leave.

See my previous comments on CT - for sh*ts sake Pricey once again did you not see or what - frustration is one think about being subbed - and again see my previous comments no problem with that -- but no player who is subbed when a team is goal/goals down with minutes to go walks off slowly like we are goals up! - and not once but several occasions - please comment on this please - never ever seen this ever - maybe you have?-- shows complete contempt for fellow team players!   As for now we can't move on naming names for rumours etc but rest assured players were once again ready to bounce him after Saturday's games in the dressing room. Completly seperate sources let me know after car parks win when we had our best result in many years certain players had to be locked in certain rooms to prevent access to ED. I have been slightly less hostile to ED Since Christmas because he has been the only light out there on the pitch but just turned it out- he is and always be a me me me me player - good riddens!

ED is a good player but not the global superstar some people think he is, Pricy2, you get frustrated at Connor Taylor's football, well I think the same can be said of every Tamworth player, including ED!. How many corners don't get past the first post?, how many free kicks sail high & wide?.

Argus - clearly it winds you up but again if this situation is so serious with so many players desperate to "bounce him" then the  fact that Andy Morrell sees fit to...continue picking him in the team calls his judgement into question rather more seriously than Elliott's attitude. Either that or it isn't quite as bad as you've made out...and before you start "for sh*t's saking" me I don't know which it is. I haven't been in the dressing room.

Truly I also think you probably overstate how often he has supposedly come off slowly. Of the defeats I've seen this season, Boston and Brackley at home, he wasn't substituted in either game, Alfreton at home I can't remember the speed he came off at so it certainly hasn't stuck in my brain as snail pace. Nuneaton away, he had a shocking game but so did plenty of others, we got gubbed 3-0 and the speed of anyone's exit from the pitch had nothing to do with that shoeing, Hednesford away he didn't come off and Telford away, Belsh basically cocked up in the middle of a freak monsoon (no blame to Belsh who's been outstanding for 2 years) and that was not down to how quick Durrell left the pitch either.

Away losses I didn't attend include North Ferriby and Halifax, at neither of which was he substituted, Alfreton away where he came on rather than off and Corby away where he wasn't substituted. Other games I don't know.

As and when he has come off slowly and I'll accept your view that there have been several occasions, I would imagine it could rob us of maybe five to ten seconds which the ref may or may not add on afterwards so I'd be surprised if it's cost us a raft of points and I'd say the lack of creativity from players around him has probably cost us considerably more over the course of the season.

I don't know the bloke. He might be worse than Satan and you might have twenty eye witnesses who will confirm that but I don't think we have a more talented bloke in the squad and if we're going to analyse why we've missed the play offs, I can think of plenty of reasons bigger than Durrell's performances.

I also don't know if it was my suggestion of wanting to keep him that tipped you over the edge but I note you've gone from having "in my humble opinion, no idea" if we should keep him or not yesterday evening to bidding him "good riddance" twenty four hours later so if it was me I apologise and if it was something Durrell did in between those posts then he must have had one hell of a bad Thursday.

As I said earlier I truly don't know if he will stay but it'd mean trying to replace our most talented player if he does (as he may well) go and your reaction to my previous post didn't exactly tie in with the "views very welcome" that you put in the OP.

Dave, as for his dead balls, they're a mixed bag - some are great, some are awful, some inbetween and I wouldn't argue any different. If he took consistently great dead balls, he'd be several divisions higher and we had Lee Hendrie a few seasons ago who had played 300 times in the Prem and once for England and his dead balls were absolutely consistently abysmal.

We don't have a glut of great free kick takers this season but I'd certainly be in favour of changing it up a bit and allowing Deeney to have a few of them, especially when the angle benefits a left footer. No argument there.

I don't want to appear as Durrell's number one fan. He's far from perfect. He does make poor choices and poor passes at times but he offers more than others too.

I'M BACK!!!! 

Obviously going off the comments above the bingo dabbers make a return also.. SleepyLOLClap

FootyDave, obviously a very good footballer in your day cos you seem to think a majority of the balls are "dead balls" there is only so many times you can put the ball on the 6 yard line for Preston, Dyer, Newton, in fact any other Tamworth player to nod home but miss from 6 yards.. Miss would be generous!!!!! One of only TWO TFC players to look up when on the ball, find a forward pass and moves to get the ball back.. 

For me (IMO) as you (Argus9 & FootDave) two say quite alot.. We need ball players and in this team I can count on two fingers how many ball players we have.. But I won't name names cos I know you dont like doing that do Argus Wink 

I wouldn't want to stay if I was him, plastic pitch and a minority of plastic fans but I suppose you get those at every club.. Can't please everyone!! 

As for walking off slowly, what a pathetic reason to get on someones back.. I believe the time you were talking about was the Nuneaton game (away) 3-0.. Without ED on the pitch we can't create anything anyway as we will probably see next season.. Hang on, surely Argus9 you've heard a rumour if he's going or staying you hear all these other ones.. Enlighten us!!!!!! 

Anyway thats me done! See you Saturday Thumbs UpBeer COYL

I don't think walking off slowly is a pathetic reason to get on someone's back when you are losing , I think it's pathetic that a player would want to walk off slowly when your team is losing, as is walking past the ball when losing & not giving it to the opposition to try & make them hurry up as ED did on Saturday at Hednesford, but I bet you didn't notice that did you non league idiot?. Never mind the season has almost ended & I for one think we have done ok this season, & if AM can keep a few & gain a few who may help us improve then let's hope we can make it an even better season next . See you all on Saturday let's hope we win. COYL.

Yes they were poor, great goal by Mo thought he was excellent! First time I've seen Newton play with his head up and not on his own. And finally Connor Taylor has found the bottle to shoot when he's infront of goal

Reckon deeney was fantastic. Can only think if ED woulda played we would've had a handful more.

I think that today showed that there is life after Durrell, the team spirit looked to be there with everyone playing there part, I know others on here think that Durrell is the 2nd coming but in my opinion Durrell is a luxury player although undoubtly talented he likes to orchestrate the play, playing 50 yard passes and when one comes off people will remember that rather than the poor passes and set plays failing to get past the 1st man and not tracking back, (although I thought this had improved recently) Durrell is not a team player and it appeared today that the players were happier without him.

I don't think I've come across a player who has divided the fans as much as him and can only say that if he's doing that to people in the stands God knows what he's doing to the changing room, I have just seen AM's post match interview and he say's that Durrell was missing to non pitch related issues, now I'm not saying this is because he has had handbags with another player or not, but reading between the lines I l'm betting this may not be far off of the mark.

As for Fylde I think they were as poor as we were good today, I also think if Durrell had been on the pitch it may have been a different result, but I believe the players that were out there put a shift in that wouldn't have been the same had Durrell been there constantly moaning and trying to play his individual style of play rather than a team player.

As for would I like him to stay next season, I couldn't care less, as I've said previously he is a good player but not great, if he decided to become a team player then great if not get someone in who is, it is very subjective as to who is our best player, I remember the same type of debate as this last season regards Daniels, but he was soon forgot and the same will happen here if Durrell leaves, which I'd suspect he is already working towards, also on the subject of Morrell signing him twice I would think this was down to circumstance and finances rather than chasing after him and I don't think he'd sign him 3rd time!!

Let's make it simple.
Morrel has in my eyes failed, and unlikely to be a winner. Why? He could not get any his of team to perform at home when it counted. Wrexham sacked him now you can see why. Wrexham leader or what ever you want to call him would sack Mills if did not perform. Five Live. Ambition. Would you want him back? No?
Durrell great player, one reason one reason only and this has not come from me. MONEY. This guy is a pro. He has a good job more than likely plus Tamworth money when I asked £500? He said and the rest. I said £800, could be. Week could be £1000 take home. £50000 a year nice.

I like ED as an individual player bags of quality can turn a game in an instant. My problem is that he doesn't so it enough. For most of the season he has not been outstanding although he has been good. Why is he playing out of his skin now? Is he putting himself in the shop window? It has been previously posted that with out Ed there is no creativity? I thought we created more yesterday than I have seen this season so the question is does he stifle other creative players? It has also been posted here that he is our leading goal scorer and assist. ( I have see a couple of quality goals from him especially at stalybridge it was top draw), but he is top scorer and assist because he takes all the penalties, free kicks and corners. Final thought from me is that ED has quality no doubt but for me he is not a team player and the team will always come first there must be a reason why a player with so much quality is playing at this level. For me I would thank him for his goals and assists and let him move on. This is a game of opinions and I know there will be much conjecture of ED

Sorry I forgot about the closed season. This not me talking bull can't say who told me it would not be right.
Let's just say he is a Conference player. And going on more or less what his pay is, playing football and working at my place of work. Don't you think he's worth that kind of money?
What I'm trying to say is if Durrell is paid say £500 to £800 a week which I believe it is more around the £800 . Why did Big Bob let Tamworth drop out of the National Prem when he is paying that kind money out for this league?
Let's say I am right about Gary Mills would you lot like to see him back?


Posted By: Footy Dave
Date Posted: 18 Apr 2016 at 8:46am

Happy with AM at the moment, wouldn't want Mills back, believe you could be correct about the wages as I believe Belly is on around £500, I also believe Metts is on a decent amount as well. The issue is , I believe, that the wages at Conf level have now dropped to more or less the same as this division as the clubs in the conf prem realised they couldn't afford to pay more. Some of them have smaller gates than us.

Which leads me to my next point, just over 600 again on Saturday, where have our fans gone!, we are 6th in the league, with an outside chance of making the play offs, not facing relegation!, things aren't that bad!!.

FootyDave, if you read my comments from previous you will see that yes I was at the game.. We created 3 or 4 chances and scored 3.. Musta had your glasses off! Cool

As for ED is a luxury player, I had to google the definition of "Luxury Player" and this is what it said.. "Luxury players, previously believed to exist only in warm climates and suspect economies, are generally welcomed" and after reading articles on this it seems only the creators in teams ever get named as this.. Ozil at Arsenal, Mata (when he was at Chelsea) ED at Tamworth LOL
I'd be happy picking £800 a week up and being called a luxury player got a nice twang to it.. But I would imagine he's got a hefty goal bonus as well so he would be taking more home than that guys Thumbs Up not bad from a "Luxury Player" who is our top goalscorer, got 99% of our assists.. Not bad at all!

They are that bad.
When I went to see United of Man U what ever, a game you must win at home, big crowd. Playing against ten men for most the match. I would have sacked A M on the spot, or made him give the money back to the Tamworth fans. Tell me why l should pay another £12 out of my wages. I know there was other poor home performance . Lucky to get over 600 in on a game where the season is over for both sides.
The plastic pitch might give advantage at home next season. If not what do you think?

A mate of my mates,mate whose mate has a mate that played with your mates mate say's you earn over a grand a week, oh! forgot to ask if that was nett. Rumours or put another way "I believe"
regarding your £12 if you have no friends and stand on your own, who can blame you for not wanting to go to the last home game of the season! "just kidding"
how about your £12 just like mine and many others keeps the club alive for the future supporters unlike many clubs that go bust, then rise from the ashes then claim the other clubs history.

Not going to state that I know for certain what a player is paid,(hence the "I believe") but the amounts mentioned are about right. I buy a season ticket & like to get my moneys worth, but totally accept that if people are not happy with performances then they choose not to come, its only my opinion that I think we haven't had that bad a season, but as Bolehall Youth says, the money at the gate keeps the club alive, so that's reason enough for me to buy a season ticket.

I am sure you are right, also noticed but Dan at Solihull as well and we won! He has the Captains Arm Band in Greens absents, has to be bigger and stronger minded.

Maybe last we have seen ED playing for us - can't see AM changing not only a winning team but also really great performance from every player. RIsks more bust ups if in dressing room and on bench so although a game changing player may be left out altogether. Following tonight and Saturdays results may be all over so then no point in playing him in last game anyway.

Looks like both will be left out again this weekend

See you next season guys for another bumby ride. Come on you Lambs!

Cobbs - Seriously - last one - you have centred on ED as your ONLY way forward all season - apart from putting off new fans who what to contribute on this site lets turn over a new leaf - pick the players who you want to keep?

Durrell has caused problems wherever he has played. Talented footballer but an arse of a bloke. If anybody is a bully it's him. Never encouraged,just constantly criticised and abused team mates. I believe the majority of players are behind Dan Preston over this. Preston was constantly telling AM that Durrell was causing problems in the changing room but our manager decided to ignore it. Is Durrell the reason for our mid season slump?

You must be a massive Durrell fan Homer, as you seem to know a lot about him? You followed him at the clubs he's been at? 

I've heard from a reliable source that Andy Morrell and Chairman have already asked him to sign and they are in deep contract talks.. Thoughts?

Would that be from a mole? - by the way no animals have been hurt in the putting together or sending of this message! A passing thought - Perky and me got slammed for not naming sources/moles - who is yours? - personally l think what gossip within club/changing room should stay in there

My source is pretty reliable, about as reliable as your source.. About as reliable as those bingo dabbers you've got a collection of, isn't the bingo hall open in Tamworth today on this fine Friday or are you saving your hands for more boring posts about ED. Wink

As you both have a reliable source It must be "Mint".
ED has the quality to be the star player in any game, but not the quality to be a team player and unfortunately for him will just hover in non league. Such a waste of talent

National North - Part time players with jobs with no doubt associated work related pressures with staff and bosses - plus loads and loads of travelling in their second jobs - us -why the heck are you going to sign next season with a dressing room in turmoil once again with ED - players we want to retain will simply go because of this. AM surely is not that stupid? Maybe the clan that is ED on here is just trying to up the anti and get a better deal elsewhere on basis we will move heaven and earth to keep him. Oh Hum!! Just a little thought

You replied "we'll see" that wasn't really responding to my comment after you made such a statement..

Chuckles - simple question - Are you a fully paid up member of the ED Brotherhood? - abuse everyone on here and only ever talk about all things ED- never heard of you or the other chuckle before the grate (sic) ED signed for us? Still not mentioned what players you want, to keep other than ED - just getting a bit boring. Good riddens next year to where ever he goes - and just remember other fans read this site as well and will be ready for you and your posts at his new club.

Which reservation are you off, is it the Sioux if he cannot do what he wants? Or is it the Chinook tribe near Brownhills could do well at Rushall

It would make sense - why would you have him around for last game if we are not keeping him - hate boxing as a sport so it's a win win for me on two fronts. Director issue interesting - maybe we are getting different people in who will be willing to put some money into club?

Not sure what's happening with Dan Preston. I'm told he's happy at Tamworth but if they decide to move him on as well there will be no shortage of takers

You must be the only one at the King Power Stadium thinking of Dan Preston, you really do take your scouting duties serious ! We should salute you

Homer that's more worrying now, it's your day off and you are at the King Power on a free bee, and you still think of Dan Preston and looking at the fans forum, and you think I am the mug !
Surely when you went for a p

Great result for Leicester, unfortunately no contacts so watched it in the pub

As someone completely out of the loop yet having trawled through the pages of this thread and similar ones to it I still can't get my head around what's going on with Elliott at TFC. There appears to be much hearsay surrounding the player and many an opinion but not much fact from what I can glean.

If my time watching him play for Hednesford is anything to go by Tamworth has a player who should be playing at a much higher level. I've no idea what went on at Wrexham. If the stats I've seen are correct they speak for themselves, top scorer (the guy isn't even a striker or at least wasn't for Hednesford) and most assists for the club this season. If fit he should be the first name on the team sheet.

If the rumours of him causing unrest in the dressing room are true it is for AM to sort out and heal any rift in the squad. At the end of the day a huge reason ED came to Tamworth was to work with AM. There is clearly respect there for the manager so I don't see any reason why the manager can't get the player on side.

If the rumours are true he's on his way out I honestly feel the club has made a huge mistake.

Hearsay comments only that because you don't wish to name informants - it works like than in many situations but it does not mean they are wrong - as obviously proved by the massive fall out and suspension of ED eventually and yes AM does not come out here with any credit - heard long ago this has been building up and the fester nature got so big AM could not even ignor - which is so worrying. Sure without the Chuckle Brothers Comments on here and the support and inside information they had they are so close if not inside the ED bubble.- they were able to deflect the sh*t he was causing for so long. One more thought that needs saying - we fans have always been mugs and the last to know - Preston many many games ago was willing to walk away from TFC if ED remained with us next season - surely not - both are now going to Telford- Oh hum!
