  1. Very pleased about this. Shows the strength of the Club. Sam is still only 24 - he can make it.
  2. Nice! As I said I'm in Highgate, ie north London. Trying to think of somewhere semi-public where I can hang my Demon scarf. Probably I'll not come with anything more innovative than the front fence. It'll probably get stolen, but I have a second one, and hell the risk of losing the first would be outweighed by the buzz I'd get seeing the red and blue colours hanging out on a a street in London..... May the Dees be with you...
  3. I live in Highgate north London, and have a couple of times over the last few weeks worn the red and blue scarf on the tube on the way to and from work. Hoping someone would notice ! No one yet! I’ll watch the GF at home ….
  4. Put simply he held us together on field when we were on the brink. In a very real sense Nathan Jones saved the MFC when its survival was in doubt. He belongs with the immortals of this Club.
  5. I found this interview moving. Yes he made some mistakes but the principal fault was with the club, no question about that. His was a huge talent, and if he had been better taken care of in the first few years he would have got a bit closer than he did to fulfilling it. Some parts of this is sad but Jack is clearly is an ok space now and I’m sure it helped him to get some of the past off his chest . If he was in the system at the club now I’ve now doubt he would be a real star. As it was he played c 130 games with us , many good ones, was loyal, loved the Dees, And clearly still does despite the hurt. I hope he will stay in touch with the Club, and if and when he does come back in whatever capacity that he is given the welcome and respect he so deserves.
  6. 6 YO. The memory is gone, if it was ever there. The first thing I remember is MFC sliding down the ladder on 1965.
  7. This guy is a serious find. Skilled, very good, a precise, penetrating kick (very good length for his size), good overhead. Just classy in general. And very quick - in reaction time by hand, and by foot over the ground. Given that speed the small stature not such liability. He's light now, but he'll thicken out with a couple more pre-season. So another to add to Jordon, Jackson, Pickett, Rivers, Petty. A rich vein.
  8. I started following the Dees in 1965 as a 7 yo. So I have probably suffered more than most of you. No need to say more. So what is happening now is so sweet. “Satisfying” is hardly adequate ...but it will do. And what is the most satisfying is dishing it out to clubs that have sneered at us for decades. They say revenge is a dish best served cold. Well we will over the next 3 or 4 years eating out on that big time. This is by a street the best MFC team since 1964. Probably before then altho obviously that’s just speculating. This team has a rare balance of tall and short, strength and pace, wily experience and youthful enthusiasm, heavy physical pressure down back and quick razor sharp forward entry ability. But the main thing is we are playing as a team. Everybody (including, note all please, regular Demonland whipping boys Melksham and Weed) is buying in, supporting the cause.
  9. Anyway he is part of a forward set up which is kicking winning scores. You don’t change winning teams unless there is a very good reason. There ain’t here.
  10. Re the last post exactly. As I said KP forwards take years.
  11. I haven’t read the posts on this thread but don’t need to. They will be Weeds no good, he’s had his chance, , drop him, he doesn’t do forward 50 pressure etc etc. My simple contribution is: keep playing him. He is a KP forward. They take years to mature. He did enough today - flying for the ball (which he always does full tilt), providing a contest, a few handballs out, good running into space - to earn his keep. Repeat keep playing him. One day the marks he is getting to will stick. And then will see the potential bloom. For God’s sake we do not want to see him doing that anywhere but at our club.
  12. My goodness we have a good one here, this guy has it. If he stays fit, adds a bit more upper body weight (not much just a bit more holding power) he will be a star.
  13. Absolutely. Think of the years of humiliation. We have achieved nothing yet. The moment we start assuming things, get ahead of ourselves, think beyond the game in front of us, we are dead.
  14. Please someone just confirm there absolutely nothing in this. So I can sleep tonight.
