Re: Leamington (A)

We need a nasty, hard, horrible centre half who can organise and a nasty, hard, horrible , massive centre forward who can bully people, hold the ball up and score goals. Reece Styche would score a hatful in this team. That’s the sort of striker we would ideally need. Put themselves about a bit and ...

Re: Leamington (A)

Yeah, it is lopsided when you look at it. The thing is, Campbell was bought with the intention of him leading the line, and presumably at reasonable expense for this level. Unfortunately, I think we're approaching the point of admitting that transfer has failed. He's a supporting striker. With him ...

Re: Leamington (A)

We are one player, namely an out and out centre forward, from being a bloody good team for this level. Agreed. This season is about being patient. The next few weeks are going to be tough and I can’t see us winning again until Blyth at the end of the month. During this run just remember that we hav...

Re: Leamington (A)

DFR makes it sound pretty dire tbh. It sounds like we've created nothing. I don't accept we really need a big target man, but we definitely need someone else to be the man at the top of the front 3. It's increasingly clear that Campbell just can't do it. DFR saying he looks a bit disinterested, whic...

2-0, supposedly bounced in off the crossbar.

Re: Leamington (A)

Lots of changes. Very surprised to see Donawa drop to the bench. Happy to see Holness in the side.

Holliday back on the bench, but no Bell? Which seems surprising - maybe his loan has been extended? But there's an open space on the bench. No Connell, Laing and Liddle as expected.

Re: Food Bank Collection on Saturday 30th November

It's inherently political though. It's a damned disgrace that the worlds 5th richest country needs food banks. There were 45 in 2010, there are now about 2,000. I wonder what has happened in the meantime :shh: Well done to all involved, but we shouldn't have to do this. It doesn't have to be this wa...

Re: Darlington V Telford

It does seem odd not to use those options when we have them. Holness is a must start for me. Perhaps illness explains it, but then he could've used Bascome to switch it up. He's been criminally underused lately, and he's clearly in form internationally. A switch up would be entirely justified Tuesda...

Re: Darlington V Telford

I'm not sure I can agree with the premise that we can't be excellent because we only scored 2 goals? I listened to fans radio yesterday, and was too frustrated to comment by the end. I thought we would add a load more in the second half, it didn't seem in doubt. Very disappointing. At least we can b...

Re: Darlington V Telford

A little disappointed to see Omar drop out of the team, but I suspect part of the deal with Lambert being here is that he has to play?

Good team, i think Rivers is very unlucky to be the one to drop out, but Donowa really does deserve his chance. Hope he can grab another goal.

Come on!

Re: AFC Wimbledon Problems re Ground & Ownership

It seems a bit absurd to me. Why do they need it to be a fancy all seater anyway? Apparently they have enough funds for the 4,000 main stand but then funding stalls after that... and they need millions more!? It seems a fairly simple choice to me. Build something cheaper on the rest of it!? Cheap te...

Re: AFC Wimbledon Problems re Ground & Ownership

I can't quite understand why they're building such a fancy stadium right off the hat. For a fan owned club, it seems over the top. They have more than us in their supporters group, but not enough surely to fund the thing they're talking about. They should never sell the controlling percentage of the...

Re: Darlington v Gainsborough Trinity FA Trophy

Would be very happy if we get Gary Martin in. I think his record speaks for itself really. I think it's not a bad idea that we look to work with what we have first before spending money though. Martin would presumably be a loan from his Icelandic club, which is why he can't come in until January, ri...

Honestly, there's worse bankrolled clubs out there (Salford and Fleetwood the immediate ones which spring to mind). I don't think they're exactly blowing the competition away. Plenty of clubs have some kind of benefactor, even at our level. It's a shame we don't have someone to chip in for a player ...

Re: Darlington v Gainsborough Trinity FA Trophy

I don't think it's odd to call for a change at all. Yes, we're in pretty good form generally (if we count the 5-1 whupping as a one off, which I hope it is). However, some have been scraped, narrow games, and Campbell isn't in form. Donowa is. Rather than 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it', i'd argue...

Re: Solihull Moors Away - FA Trophy 1st Rnd

The perfect combination of an away trip, about as far away as was possible at this stage of the draw, against a better team we stand to probably lose against, and a crap day out with a tiny crowd.
