Who gave the figures ,it depends on who that person was as to the truth of the actual amount supposedly.
We know to our cost what that owner can and will inevitably do , pools were well warned of this.
Hignett supplied the figures in the Hartlepool Mail.

Re: The Areana

I wonder when we expect to hear an update in this regard from the club.

Obviously the next step, infrastructure wise, will be critical so I am very intrigued to see which route is the most viable going forward.

Re: Gateshead game...

I thought Galbraith, Trotman and particularly Laing were pretty shaky last night. I thought Laing's decision making was poor on several occasions, but he wasn't the only one and Trotman's pass cost us the goal. However, Laing has performed at this level consistently for Blyth, so there is clearly a ...

Halifax will bring about 50 maximum :lol:

Remember when they demanded 600 tickets and barely sold 300 for our first game back. LOL
Was that not Stockport? or has my mind blown?
Definitely Halifax. Kicked off about their allocation of 600 and then only sold half of it.

Re: Dan Maguire signs!!

Any good shouts for alternatives then? Boyes at Spenny - Not really realistic I imagine due to wages and need for a transfer fee. Beesley at BPA - Also unlikely to be realistic, unless their budget is to be dramatically reduced. Northern League - The next Glen Taylor would be nice. Any possibilities?

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.
