On another note that’s three goals on the bounce for Sousa, I really liked Donawa but I believe Sousa is an upgrade. Fantastic bit of business by AA.
Second this, two assists in last two as well - was also a fan of Donawa but technically Sousa is different level.

Lads look knackered. Not made anything second half. Are they full time? They just look fitter and sharper than us.

Be surprised if Boston can keep this tempo up. We should start to come more into it.

I’d be surprised if they end up with 11 men the way they’re going. Really dirty.
Agreed, they're crafty as well mind they're sharing the fouls round.

Aye. I'd be happy to go in 1-0 down to be honest and reshuffle at h/t. Sousa looking very bright though, first I've seen of him.

Matches like this when you see what a miss Hatfield is. Getting dominated in the middle and can't get our foot on the ball.

Re: Curzon Ashton v Darlo

Whilst I share the faith that we're on broadly the right track, at what point do we start to get nervous? Fact of the matter is that we've played well in one game out of four. We have fewer points than at this point last season, have scored fewer goals and conceded more. And the corresponding fixtur...

If Trotman does leave, I’m confident he will be going for a fee. AA backed him at the forum.

Alun Armstrong on his way out of Blyth?

Sounds like Alun Armstrong is tearing his hair out at Blyth. IF we got shot of TW (not necessarily endorsing that), could he be tempted? From what I recall he turned down the job when TW was appointed. https://www.thenonleaguefootballpaper.com/latest-news/26731/alun-armstrong-budget-cuts-are-forcing...

Re: Darlo -Diary .We need significant change.

This stuff about buying 'quality local players' does my nut, as if there is a wealth of talent on our doorstep that we don't even look at because we're only interested in players from Telford. Face facts. If a quality player born and bred in the North East becomes available there are five non league...

As above there's a piece on us in the new WSC, centering on the Southport game. I haven't read it yet but be interesting to see what they make of us.

Fairy ply to him he's definitely markedly improved.

Re: Where we are after 25 league games

Find this argument that Wright 'failed' in the summer recruitment and can't take credit for loan signings completely baffling. Firstly it's questionable whether he 'failed' with his signings. So far he has three successes in Nicholson, Elliott and Hughes. Three failures in Henshall, Ainge and Burn. ...

He's our only recognised right back, so there would be a clear impact, especially with our ability to bring in new players expected to be limited to unproven loan signings.
