Well said Jaffa, think those in the know already knew that, luv the guestbook though its were them in the know and them who aint a clue can air there views.Always gonna be s***stirrers but do think 'Really Reg' last column has it spot on with his last comment.

Well it seems like people are running their mouth on here again and are too scared to leave their name. Its nice to see someone rates me as the best keeper in Newark but to be honest it means nothing at this stage. Also if anyone thinks I have a problem with Ducko they are very mistaken. Would I have signed for Farndon if I didn't get on with Ducko? In fact he was one of the main reasons I signed for Farndon. 
23/8/2002 15:36 GMT  Huh??!
Jaffa rated the best goalkeeper in Newark? You ARE taking the p*ss, right?!

Can someone please remove that picture of Stenson's artichokes from the website as the appeal like Warners hailine is fast receeding 
22/8/2002 20:22 GMT  Farndon's Best
We might not have played that well in friendlies but we haven't had our best side to choose from. When have our main strike force, Ben and Birdy, played together? They haven't yet and with the quality of those 2 players maybe that will be our cutting edge. What you have to remember "Reg" is that from last season we have 4 quality players to come in. Jaffa is rated as the best goalkeeper in Newark, Ryan and Ben are 2 of the best young players in Newark and Michael Allen's qulaity is there for all to see. Add that to the likes of Venie, Issott, Lewis, Burt, Brompton, Bird and a fit again Cossie then there is all the makings of a team that can challenge for silverware at the end of the season.

....Seen you play several times I wouldn't say exciting is exactly the word. Yes you pass the ball around well but you clearly lack penetration in the final third. I spoke to people who saw you play Newark Town and they said you had alot of possession but you had virtually no chances and you had to rely on them scoring for you! If you get that sorted who knows what might happen, but until then you'll still be slightly behind New Inn/RHP/Lowdham (possibly). 
21/8/2002 17:40 GMT  Really Reg..
A lot of what you say is true,one must emphasize of there Youth, perhaps am older head may help. Think you may be pleasantly surprized that all is not lost regarding the Uni situation, not bad as you say.Also missed out on other attacking midfielder Goodrick back from injury. However totally disagree with your views on the reserves not helping out 1st team and vice versa,bit of a age old myth is that one.Time will tell its coming tegether , the main thing is patience, lets hope some of the young ones understand that!

One of the main reasons RHP did so well last year was their huge squad of players, Farndon have by far one of the strongest midfields in the area ie, Lewis Burt Venie Issott Cossie M.Allen etc but with Rhys and Greg off to uni and the reluctance of reserve players helping out their 1st team will mean they might struggle over the christmas period, when injuries and suspensions tend to take their toll, also many Farndon players are too young to be playing two games a weekend, 'Farndons best' is entitled to their opinion but its the managers decision, and he's done a good job with the young lads so far! However New Inn and RHP are efficient machines and do win trophies, but they are boring to watch! I think most of the younger lads are about 19 and play the kind of football that is far beyond their years. There is no doubt that people will be excited by farndon this season by their skill and atitiude even if they dont win trophies

The trouble is with me I can't seem to get a level of consistency for Farndon where I think I do for Flowserve (sat). If the first 11 was picked on performances during pre-season I agree I probably wouldn't make the first 11. I just got to turn that around and this season under the guidence of Ducko on a Sunday and Hillier on a Saturday, I think I will. Everyone goes throught a bad patch in the season I guess mines now in pre-season...well I hope it is anyway. 
20/8/2002 17:37 GMT  Lets just say....
One for sure the guestbook be eventful this season,don't take everything you read to be true. You need more than 11 players to do any good, already have few injuries (U ok Venie!).Last year showed loads promise, this season have added new faces, but hey Rome wasn't built in a day so you lot remember that! As for keeper/manager there virtually bedpartners luv each other to death! 
20/8/2002 16:53 GMT  Unrest?
Jaffa appears to have a good relationship with his Manager!! 
20/8/2002 12:10 GMT  Barge
Opposition wasn't up to much? Yeah right whoever the f*ck said that obviously only saw the result and not the game. Farndon didn't walk all over us, that's all i gotta say. 
20/8/2002 08:26 GMT  Farndons Best
So you are saying Farndond Best team, doesnt include Venie? surely he is/was the best young talent around at 1 stage + should b able 2 walk into the team! 
19/8/2002 21:22 GMT  Jaff
Nice to see someone has an idea of who our best 1st team is but does our big headed manager? Anyway if we think we are capable of winning something this season we had better get off to a good start with New Inn and NSk in the 1st month but if we play to the best of our abilities we are more than capable of beating any team in the league

19/8/2002 14:18 GMT  Farndon's Best
I thought Farndon played really well on Sunday, I know the opposition wasn't up to much but there was alot of neat and quick movement throughout the team. There has been some good signing this year for Farndon but there is still alot of players who think they are far better than what they actually are and do you really think these players would play for the second team? Im sure that some of these players will be unhappy when Mr Duckmanton finally picks his first side. My side for the first game would be : JAFFA (GK) NICKY (CB) R.LEWIS (CB) MARTIN (CB) GREG (LWB) RYAN (RWB) D ISSOT(CM) COSSIE (CM) M.ALLEN (CM) BIRDY (CF) B.ROCHE (CF).
