Re: General Election 2019

Gramps is right though. You’ve flip flopped more than a flip flop factory! Care to answer what I said earlier about removing the right to strike then being unable to take the Government to court? That’s more insidious and dangerous than getting the young to pay more for you. Have a good think about...

General Election 2019

Ted seems to think young people aren’t paying anything towards the NHS. Except they already do through National Insurance etc, like everyone else. So why should this group (let’s say 25-35) be targeted with increased taxes? Given the financial pressures facing young people, more so than previous gen...

Re: Solihull Moors Away - FA Trophy 1st Rnd

Anyone know why Kings Lynn have gone to ET and not a replay? Its up to the clubs. I would have thought it would be in the cup rules? The rules are that it’s up to the clubs. You’ll have a replay unless you agree to finish on the day. Personally I think it should be standardised across the board tha...

Another Midfielder

If it is Reid (and I always treat messageboard rumours from other club’s fans with healthy scepticism) I’m almost certain he’s played as a striker before.

His main position is midfield of course, but I’m sure he has played as a striker.

Re: General Election 2019

The Lib Dems aren’t going to win seats here so it’s almost pointless them sending their leadership. But it’s very surprising Labour wouldn’t.

Re: Darlington v Chester

On the game itself, it is absolute epitome of Darlington typicality to be pummelled at Brackley, implode against Telford, be woeful against Leamington and then outplay title challengers Chester. But we looked good, a vast improvement on the last few weeks. At the risk of speaking too soon, our home ...

Even Blyth are improving (albeit they got humped 6-0 on Saturday, but there’s definitely been an uptick in their form of late) so that's not a gimme. Very concerning ...

The football club, as part of the community, is raising funds and awareness, because it is necessary. You don't get to shout down people pointing out *why* they exist, and claim we can't talk about it, because you don't like the observations.
