Re: Law changes season 19/20

Seem like changes for the better. Hope someone makes sure the officials in NLN are properly instructed in the application of these changes as well as being reminded of what the actual rules are. Some of them appeared totally unfamiliar with the rulebook and how they should apply them this season

Re: Best opponents faced this season

Biggest opponents have been in the main the match officials. Some really poor referees and assistants officiated this season at BM. Brackley played really well but generally, most of the teams were only middling and any team on their day could beat any other in the league (including us!). Any team w...

Re: TW - Learning His Trade

Yes, we need consistency but currently there is no method or semblance of attacking play which is what we need to get people to come & watch us. Only 1311 to see us play BPA who could be promoted, on a sunny bank holiday really says it all for this season. MOTM was a loanee (Turner, GK who had kept ...

Re: Another summer of change ahead

I reckon we may see Heaton back in the summer, be good if that happens. Well, good for our defence, but not for his career. Hopefully, it has been a bit of a false start for him and someone can get it back on track for him. If it is DFC, then all the better for us, but think this is a very slim cha...

Re: Next season

There is another factor which has not yet been mentioned, there are some clubs that are in a financial mess and could go under. This would cause some gaps all over the leagues that could give a bigger reorganisation. FA need to keep tighter control over clubs' expenditure compared to their income.

Re: Darlington V FC United

Mixture of emotions, relief - that looks like we are staying up, frustration - lack of a CF who can finish off chances we create, pride - the club was saved yet again by the fans, dismay - over the management of the team.
Nevertheless, have renewed my season ticket - must be my heart ruling my head.

Nonsense, that's not how it's used generally and anyway I've been watching Scottish premier highlights and Tommy Wright is St Johnstone's manager so problem solved.
Tommy must decide, St.Johnstone or Darlo. He cannot do both, particularly if there is hard Brexit and SNP gain independence. :lol:

Re: Darlington V Stockport

Just watched the highlights and seems like a decent first 40 minutes then let down by defending from set pieces plus losing Trotman to second yellow card early on 2nd half. TW & AW need to get defence together to sort out their set pieces, although TBH we have not had a settled back line this year a...

Re: FC United

They have a great set of real supporters but their situation certainly shows how tough it is to run a club. FCUM are in a bad way, but we cannot afford to be anything less than ruthless & snatch 3pts.

If the board won't tell me how long TW's contract is, especially when I & the entire world know how long Man Utd are giving Solly, I am not telling them if I am renewing my season ticket or not.

Re: Glover

The lad needs to be playing in a fixed team so that he can develop. DFC have not given him any opportunities to help with his career, almost feels like he was lured here under false pretences. Was there a spare seat in the car so they got a better split on petrol money?
