I see that Tooting have dropped so low in football's pecking order that they are now consigned to the Extra Preliminary Round of the FA Cup on August 6th.
Oh joy !!

Dan, we have memories of the club when it was big in non-league football: we are lucky.  The fans who have turned in the last few years up know nothing more than what the club is today and that is not putting them down.

I cannot see the club changing the way that it is now being run.  So perhaps it is time for the "old timers" like us to let go.

I'm not in anything harder than Thatcher's cider and Ian Hunter.

When one considers the depth to which this football club has plummeted: does anything surprise you?

Just remember that it is not about Tooting and Mitcham and you will find a whole wide world around you when you let go.

The past is the past so let it rest wish wonderful memories that it offers.

I spoke to James directly this afternoon.  Really great bloke.  He said he hasn't got a agent.

Danny Bassett is another one. Played at Carshalton last year and has only signed for Cray in a league above. He should be here with us. But he can see there is no ambition. Dominic Hartley Whitley the list goes on. Honestly it's such a shame. Money being wasted on Agency fees while the Tooting fan suffers. So poor...it really is poor.

Seems a real waste to lose these players. Lexus was also realised by Reading. They could of stayed and got us into the conference and play conference football for us if Steve woke up and started running this club properly.

"FWG will no longer be offering mentoring and support services for footballers across Non-League and Professional Football Pyramid."
"
Important FWG Announcement
FWG • May 01, 2022





FWG will no longer be offering mentoring and support services for footballers across Non-League and Professional Football Pyramid.


Following consultation between the company owners it is with deep regret that FW Group Consultants Limited will be closing part of the company.



For the foreseeable future - which will include the entire 2022/23 footballing season - FWG will no longer be offering mentoring and support services for footballers across the non-league and professional football pyramid. We have also made the decision to cease other services which were on offer, including Injury Prevention Service, Player Cam Clips, Player Development Sessions and the popular Aspiring Leaders Programme.



FWG will, however, continue to successfully operate the scouting side of the company, and will continue to fully support football clubs with player recruitment across both non-league clubs and the professional game. Our in-house scouts will continue to be active throughout the current season and next season, they will be part of private hire/freelance list of scouts used up and down the country.



We understand the considerable impact this could have on players and individuals connected to the company, but feel that this is the best decision moving forward at this time. FWG has been hugely successful in the almost 5 years it has been in operation, in circumstances that have been significantly more challenging than ever could have been predicted due to the global pandemic and the impact it has had on the football world. However, we have done our upmost to make sure all players were supported throughout our time with them both.



During this time, we have experienced fantastic success through our educational programmes, mentoring of players, scouts training and within the non-lea

Gary it is no surprise to me about the agency players i said ages ago Ashley Bosah doesant know any players and thats pretty obvious the team is being run by the agents and that is also obvious.

Dan mate that can't be a surprise to you after everything that's been said. Look what happened to the right back young George when he left FW Consultants.  He never got a start in the team after that and faded.

I saw that Deepee.  Most of us long term supporters have seen most things at our club and others. There seems to be a bigger current trend to use agents at the moment.  Why a player wants to pay a percentage of their wages for representation purposes when they are earning averagely between £50 and £200 a week. Why a player wants to pay a Consultants fee for analysis and coaching of their game is really something that should and thankfully is being offered at well run clubs. So again find a decent club and save your money.  I know the Sevenoaks manager and his coaching staff ( ex Whyteleafe) have a big reputation for doing this. You would expect a club like Dorking to do this with Mark Beard as their head coach and Marc White as their brilliant owner.
Dave Irons . We don't see eye to eye at the moment.  You didn't like a post I posted on here congratulating Dulwich in their promotion and we had words. Putting that a side I think your post was spot on. Despite what people think of me I want the same thing as everyone at Tooting, Success! Real Club progression not just player Progression which is totally one sided.  All I wanted to do is create awareness.  I would do so much voluntary work at Tooting.  Unknown to most I did a season at Carshalton and 2 seasons at Abbey Rangers for my mate Nick Riley who is chairman.  I really would like Steve to get his head out of buildings the flats and housing and remember he has a football club to run . Remember people will only do what you allow them to do. What is currently happening is not going to help the club in the long run and will cost more in the long run. I have been looking into this for a couple of years.  One of my findings was flagged to the club and I am pleased to say has been very quickly dealt with by Caroline McRoyall. I won't say anymore than that but all I would say I do have concerns about other people at other clubs including pro clubs. I will leave it there...... Dave Irons we have known each other most o

Interesting comments from Keith Boanas on Twitter.....

"So hearing again young players trialling at lower non league Combined Counties turning down clubs because Their AGENT told them they should be playing higher and even conference , Same as any level only so many spots to fill at clubs so know your start point and get playing time"

Message on behalf of Dave Irons.
I thought it was too good to be truewith us signingplayers that belong to an agencyand putting us in a lose/lose situation.If an agency player proves good enough he will move on up the leagues, if he is not good enough then he wont be of any advantage to us.
we tried this plan last season and after 70+ players we only stayed in the division because 1 side folded and we played the other sides in trouble in the final month.if we are to make a serious attempt to move up the leagues we need investment in players that belong to t&m united not shop window players owned by FWG or 34 Sport Management or any other agency for the agencys monetary gain.
In the long run there is much to be gained with our own players. Boreham Wood being a prime example making over a £million pounds as well as very wide recognition, Dorking Wanderers is another teamto reap rewards by investment whilst we plod along with no ambitions. 

P.S. correct me if im wrong but didnt the F.A. make it illegal for agencies to own players after the Teves and
Macheranno transfers nearly 20 years ago.
