Was a great keeper until he injured his shoulder, was never the same again after that.
Think ex keepers make good trainers, think it’s one of the few positions where ex players are the main trainer.

He was Bury's player of the year a couple of years ago and a fixture in the promotion year. Would give a very good option in terms of having experience on the bench

Spent last season with us and played a few games in both the league and F.A Cup. Did well in the two Cup games against Bristol City, as our first choice keeper was on loan from that club. Made a few mistakes in the league games.

Good back up keeper. Do you have a goalkeeping coach? Sure that he would do well in that role if he has his badges

Back up keeper combined with goalkeeping coach, I’d be happy with that.

Let’s face it, back up keepers don’t play much, and we could save money.

Same here, every time I hear of Joe this is still the first thing that comes to mind. Nothing against him and he's a decent keeper but it was very harsh to leave Achto out of the final. Like you say, his height would've probably made the difference on the goals.

Loved Aldo as a manager but he got this one wrong imo.

It makes sense will be on the bench more than play will also be coach lives locally and the most important thing fits the home grown player criteria with one having to be on the bench.

Calling players home grown. It makes them sound like a tomato plant cultivated in a grow bag.



Then I ate his Liver.......... with some baked beans and a can of coke.

I don't think this is the right time to come on our board mate, not what after your @#$%& of a Chairman did.
Shrewsbury Town can rot in hell as far as I'm concerned.

Agreed 100%. Especially that 2nd goal. We could have won that if it wasnt for the fact that Leicester had almost a 2 week break before that game whilst we were playing Newcastle in that cup tie, followed by Wolves away in the week (& with Chally carrying that injury).

What a great day out that was. To win would have been the icing on the cake but at least it put us on the map. Two things really @#$%& me off, Heskey tripping over his own feet to get Clint sent off and bonehead Elliot getting the headline for the second goal when it hit the bar and rebounded in off Murphy's hand. Petty I know.

Wind it in. He was raised on the Woodie and used to watch Rovers before moving. As for what their chairman did, he did what virtually every chairman did and exactly what our would have done. The fault and blame does not lie with the clubs or their chairmen (or women), it lies with the EFL.

Thanks for your supportive post Doogie, I don't particularly want to bring the "Shrewsbury" thread back to the top of the board but perhaps if Crazylegs reads it again he will understand a little more. TBF i need to start a thread about Birkenhead in the 60-70's and reply to those who replied about RFHS.

One good point that Crazylegs did make was about the tackle that Alf Wood made on George Yardley at a night match at The Gay Meadow back in the late 60's that basically finished Yardleys career. I was too young to go to that match, as a TRFC supporter, but we Shrews fans debated Alf Wood on our board about a year or so back,just after Wood died.

Several town fans remembered that tackle, one describing it as the worst act of thuggery that he had ever seen on a football pitch. Apparently Wood only got booked, several commented that he should have been sent off and banned for the whole season. In this day and age I'm sure that Yardley would have sued Wood for loss of earnings etc etc, and by what I read he should have done

Absolutely no problem. Shrewsbury is one my favourite places to visit for a cheeky night away. I've spent many happy hours at The Boathouse by the side of the river. Too young to see Yardley but for there to be the almost universal condemnation of the challenge that I have seen it must have been really bad. In many ways I miss the physicality of football as it used to be in the sanitised PL era, but the ability to injure an opponent with intent and get away with it is one thing that has definitely improved.

I cannot belief the vitriol that underlies Crazy's response. Yardleys treatment was a abysmal but that does not define a club for ever and a day or justify hostility to a guest poster making balanced and objective comments. This clinging on to historical events to define reactions to others was the fuelling that sustained secterianissm in Northern Island and is rooted in so much division in the rest of the world.
Crazy is entitled to his opinion but that his observations and reactions are just extreme triabalism . I for one am very glad that it is a minority of the football fraternity that think this way

I understand what you say Devon.
However my main comments were directed at the decision by their chairman to vote not to play knowing full well it would unfairly relegate us (and having just beaten them on their own turf).
Poor show!

With regards Yardley, sure it was a long time ago. That does not excuse their disgusting behaviour and not just the player who perpetrated that tackle against our George who had scored 4 against them earlier at PP. A picture of that player adorns their boardroom under their 'hall of fame'. That is so offensive.

That is Shrewsbury Town. Nice club. I hope they enjoy their League One football next season.
