Re: Gloucester V Darlington

Important we don't expect too much, or too little, from any game this season. There will be downs and ups. We are not going to gain promotion. We will not be relegated. Middle of the pack by April.
As for this game, my gut says we will narrowly lose out... but, perhaps, that's expecting too little!

Re: Saturday

Well, Saturday is hear, and we shall soon know AA's views on who plays where. I simply want to say what an excellent thread this has been to read, with different views put over in a way that respects what others think = kind of "OK, you see it that way, but I see it this way because...". Perhaps tho...

Middlesbrough game

Shame the forecast looks horrible for Saturday. Likely to put many off, if it rains as predicted. Gloomsters (sorry for the political in word!) might even suggest the game could be off because of a waterlogged pitch.

Didn't want to muck up the serious "Sticky" thread about team players, so apologies for posting here. Woke up this morning, after a kind of dream/nightmare.

The chance to get a full month's footie on the box. Full marks to the BBC for their excellent coverage.
The women's game has improved no end at the international level and I, for one, shall make the most of the tournament.

Re: Boost The Budget 19/20

Don't know if it is still possible to invest, but a few payments went through yesterday (1st June) - to push the total to over £103,000. So, if you meant to put something in but didn't get round to it for some reason, perhaps you could still try...?

Re: Boston V Darlington

Lots of relevant things said in this thread, along with the inevitable swings from "He must go" to "Brilliant", when we find ourselves in a situation where we clutch at good or bad straws as the wind blows from game to game. For what it's worth, my view has always been to give TW a continuing chance...

Re: Harvey Saunders Departs

I would suggest that the increasing lack of support around him has something to do with it. A fast run, win the ball, look to someone to pass to and find nobody can hardly encourage.

To 'complete' the post, Ebbsfleet have paid up what they owe to HMRC and the petition was dismissed.
So all three clubs live to play another day.

Wind-up Time

Three clubs (Bolton, Macclesfield and Ebbsfleet) in the High Court today. For Bolton it is very much a regular outing = sixth petition in well under two years.

Will clubs soon be competing with retail stores to see who can fold most in a month?

So sad.

Re: Saturday - weather

If the weather is as forecast currently, the problem is that the rain won’t start until well after midnight and it won’t get heavy until about 7.00 am. So an early morning inspection could well result in “playable”. By lunchtime, with Chester having travelled, things could be very different.

Re: Darlington V Brackley

We were well and truly beaten by a team which, if you will forgive the pun, were in a different league. That, for me, sums up our situation. We can, with justification, say that Player A should be preferred to Player B (with different people having contrary views) and we can say good and bad things ...
