Re: Home Kit Vote

I quite like the sash tbh. Darlo Plate.

I'll happily have the hoops back the year after though. Keeps all happy. I do think the hoops are our identity, but let's think of this as a wonky hoop.

Maybe the away kit will be hooped. The best one we've had in recent years is the red and black hoop imo.

Re: Home Kit Vote

I actually like 3 tbh. I've no issue with the occasional kit which has either a sash or a single black band for the sake of variety. I really liked the very thin black hoops (Glenwoods Paints) kit. I agree black and white hoops are our identity but to me, these for a year don't dilute that. I only r...

The kit is mint.

Not much else to add :lol: but I assume that’s the one we didn’t choose in the summer. Some collectors item if the club sell em off.

Re: Southport away postponed

I think PFA membership only covers PL to EFL level. However, the ironic thing about it is many National League players will be ex-PFA members that will have contributed significantly over recent years and also include prospective new members. I'm not saying the PFA should fund testing for National ...

Re: Shorter games ?

Reading through this thread and watching the news has got me wondering about the idea that we might as well scrap this season with the hope that there may be a chance to have a more normal season next year. Some of the chances of getting back to normal will depend on the roll out of the vaccine. Ac...

Suspended until March. You have to think it’s highly unlikely they will complete the season from there.

Re: Shorter games ?

Just don’t see this as a solution I’m afraid. In fact, it would make travelling long distances for a shorter game feel even dafter. It’s not a recreational league. Extend the season. It’s the only sensible thing to do.

Re: Southport away postponed

The season needs to be extended. It’s that simple. They need to sit down and agree to basically push the season back at least a month, maybe longer, by eliminating a bunch of midweek games. Those midweek slots can then be used by the ever increasing amount of rearranged fixtures. I’d maybe argue we...

So now those two can’t play at all for two weeks. I wouldn’t be surprised if we either see a break, or, the league need to ...

It doesn’t say the date and ‘at home’, it specifically says Blackwell. Perhaps I’m reading too much in...

Daft decision. There was no way in the time it took them to score that they would have realised how serious the injury was. Up to the ref to stop play anyway. Correct.

Yes, the thing with Spennymoor crowds is that they let in a lot of people for next to nothing.

Lol so the idea that it is a requirement for the new manager to prefer a direct style of play was in reference to the style of play of their outgoing manager.

It might be possible we will be allowed fans by then. Tiers are reviewed on the 16th I believe, game is the weekend of the 19th. I note the club have said it will be at Blackwell so maybe we'll allow a few hundred in.

We might end up with an almighty fixture backlog.... I guess it's good from a 'getting fans in' perspective as it'll probably mean more games with at least someone in the ground. It also gives us time to rebuild from that horror show.

His head was an arms length from the ball hence he handled it over Shilton. The keeper presumably thought it was easily his ball and made the judgement based on honesty. Wrongly with hindsight.

Re: Diego Maradona

It could just as easily have been a head as a hand. It was a weak, limp-wristed attempted punch when he should've been catching it. He barely gets off the ground.

I'm not sure why you're trying to suggest I'm saying he was a bad goalkeeper? That doesn't mean he couldn't make an individual error.
