If we can keep hold of Furtado this might be just the ticket to us finally getting a few goals....

<> Think the chances of us keeping Furtado are very slim - we would be required to pay his French development club (Montpellier) £60k if we were to hold on to him. Think the new owners and manager might feel that is too much to pay.

I'm still not sure about his touches at times, though to be fair there have been several games where he has been up front on his own and not had much service from a misfiring midfield. And even in those circumstances he is our top league scorer with 5 goals...

I think the fact we have signed Duffy indicates the manager is preparing for Furtado to be away and has looked at replacement(s). <>

<> Not at the game but a disappointing result...mind you our away form is poor. I thought the defence had been looking a bit better, and Rohan seemed to be getting more confident. Just hope that we don't get a rerun of last season where Ryan and Russell were scoring plenty up front but were continually being setback by a dodgy defence and poor goalkeeping. But it's early days - think we might finish just outside the play offs but still plenty of time and only a few points off the pace.

<> Given the awful state of the club from the summer till just before Christmas, staying in the league will be a minor miracle, getting to the play offs a bonus. Great that the new consortium has come in, a few months of stabilising and seeing what needs to be done on and off the park...<>
