On This Day in 1989
Warming up for their centenary season, an Alan Cork goal was enough for the Dons to beat Swedish club Finnskogaf 1-0 on the first match of a five game Scandinavian tour. The tragic news of the death Lawrie Cunningham had cast a pall over the summer with Terry Gibson saying of his former team mate: "He wasn't just a good player, he was a tremendous guy. Some of the things he could do with a football were out of this world."

Don't see that Pressley is necessarily a default starter, unless I've missed that this has been stated by Robbo somewhere. If (big if) we really are in with a shout of signing a properly decent and proven front man on loan then Pressley could slot in as a rotation player / impact sub.

Presume that the delay to the final signing is because the player is in demand and considering his options. If that's the case it would imply he's a fairly solid talent. Welcome Andy Carroll!
Be nice if it's someone pacey. Maybe a better version of Azeez so we can bring him on with 20 mins to go and he can run at those tired legs, score a few goals, play a role in a few more and win us some games.

Russ - Pressley is unproven so the striker we need will have to be a squad player to come off the bench I guess.

[51.lo.gg.ed] 
Not expecting Pressley to pull up trees from the start but a part of me hopes that he will be a bit like Forss in terms of taking chances!
I'm guessing we can't guarantee any other striker a first team position ahead of Palmer and Pressley and that they are waiting to see if they can get a starting spot elsewhere, otherwise will begrudgingly accept coming off our bench.

Our first XI is pretty decent, it's just how we deal with injuries. Last season Pig had a lot to carry when Palmer wasn't available.
BBC have struck gold with getting Lutalo Muhammad as the Taekwondo expert. Speaks very well, considered and offers insights to someone like me that thinks the sport is like something you would see outside a nighclub in Croydon. A credit to the sport.

BBC do tend to get better pundits than ITV and the other terestrial channels
Can see Ollie Palmer getting a fair bit of service this season if he can stay fit... Lawrence, Assal, Rudoni all look very capable of creating chances, amongst others. Hope Robbo plans to play 2 up top.

I wonder if we'll see a cohesive first team start for the first time in front of a home crowd against Scunthorpe. If so, that'll be acid test #1.
Dondog, yeah probably. any rumours or chatter about who it might be? He did say there were other options there too.
27th Jul 2021 08:48:41 
[31.lo.gg.ed] 
Starting XI for Doncaster: Tzanev, Lawrence, NGW, Hennegan, Kalambayi, Marsh, Woodyard, Assal, McCormick, Palmer, Presley.
So now that Lawrence has been announced, I’m guessing the player Robbo said we’ve had a setback with is the striker we’re after then?

Oxford thanks, hopefully that means we've kept a few on. Looked like Reuben Collins is back in as well. The fact we went and picked up Charles suggests we knew we'd be going for inexperience and wanted someone like that around.

Tall Mark - Bartley scored twice and set up the third as the youth team won 3-2 at CCL Premier Guildford City tonight - so he is certainly ahead in goals scored since he also scored at Cray Wanderers

Yep like my mate at St George's, went in for cancer OP, caught covid about 3/4 weeks ago.

Suggests most of the people dying from Covid (mostly oldies) within 28 days of a positive test were in for something else.
Regardless of how this season goes I think Robbo is the first manager who I have thought could do a Director of Football role in the future for us. Has a solid vision how he wants the team to play, how the club should be structured, what sort of culture he wishes to instill, etc, and his vision is very closely aligned to what a lot of the fans want to see (imo).

I am a little nervous given our friendly results but I guess we have not really played a settled XI yet.

I think McCormack and Charles will have taken a big part of the money saved from the outgoing players. I would also question what our increase in budget is compared to other teams in the bottom half of the table (on paper). I would be willing to wager it will be lower.
26th Jul 2021 21:35:51 
[82.lo.gg.ed] 
Like everyone else on here I do not know the full facts but a bigger budget plus the Piggott, O'Neil etc money does not equal the signings we have made so far. I do not see how the budget is in reality any bigger than last season. Otherwise the signings would have been different IMO.
