Re: Increasingly unlikely playoffs

Calling it now - the games will be a farce.

Unfit players in error-strewn games... probably isn't going to provide representative results. The team promoted will be the one that boredom ate the least during the quarantine.

Re: Potential new signings

He's a winger not a striker... not to mention playing at a higher level. He was on fire for Whitby.

Re: Potential new signings

I'd imagine Alun will take a look at the young lads released from all of our near neighbours when possible. He's emphasised looking local in the past so I'm sure he will take such an opportunity. I hope we get Junior Mondal in, although he may land higher up if someone in the conference is willing t...

Re: Increasingly unlikely playoffs

Seems a little unclear where the others stand. Altrincham seem to have said they favour playing them... but the money is a significant caveat. I can’t see any real comment from Chester, Gateshead or Brackley yet? Spending this money strikes me as ridiculous... also, surely the players are all on fur...

Re: The Team 20/21 season

Yep. I just don't see how clubs at our level or even the levels above can possibly afford to pay players / staff what they are being paid now when their income is being shredded. The Premier League and Championship would be fine because of TV rights and large fanbases.... but even in League 1 there ...

Re: The Team 20/21 season

Is there anything the Arena fanboys won't seize upon as a reason to take us back to that dreadful old dive? The capacity of Blackwell is 3,300... so even in such a situation where that 25 percent rule was enforced that's 825, not 750... the idea that walking away from Blackwell to play in the Arena ...

Re: The Team 20/21 season

Seems as good a solution as any, and I could see a world where that season ends up being something like March-July next year. Based purely on a lot of projections that there could be a winter wave. I hope that is wrong but if it happens, it will devastate next season. I can’t imagine a world where w...

Re: Away kit poll

I think that would help it for sure. It looks a little odd when the Puma and Ebac logo are both black.

I have to say, that new home shirt is outstanding. The best we've had in a long time. The little red trim bits are very nice.

Weird green one it is.

Shocked by that. I actually forgot to vote in the final round. Probably would've gone orange, but I wasn't sold once I saw the orange shorts Puma suggest pairing it with on their website.

This one is... different. I suppose.

White shorts if we have to have one of those two.

You would imagine if we asked we could have black shorts... or even just use the ones we are using with the home kit. Will look a million times better. Those orange shorts are rancid.

I’ve gone burgundy. The short issue bothered me sufficiently.... If it’s black shorts, I hope it’s orange though! (Based on here and social media I think it’s going to win this round anyway).

Re: Away kit poll

No one ever says the Dutch look like they’ve been tangoed... but it needs black shorts! Where as the burgundy would look good with either the same colour shorts or black... which makes me lean towards it...

Eager to see the other choices...

Away kit poll

Tough call, I haven’t voted yet.

I’d like to know what the shorts are - if the orange has black shorts then it’s a winner for me. Some total football Darlo style would be nice next year!

That said, I just like deep red... if it’s going to be all orange, I’d maybe go for that.

Holness has his new agent. A quick look at their website says there was supposed to be a trial game in June at Harrogate's CNG ground which was going to be televised to scouts in multiple countries. Who knows when that game will be rearranged to. But good luck to him. If he wants to take that risk ...

Re: To Tez Galbraith

Could see him ending up at Shields.

I’d like him to stay, but I think reduced terms are probably right at this stage. A great servant, but he isn’t a guaranteed starter at this point, just like Thommo wasn’t.

Hopefully Trotts will make a full comeback but he will need a bedding in period wherever he goes because of his injury, I can't see many teams taking a punt on him if they have to pay a fee to get him.

You could put Campbell out wide & he would still contribute more than what Thompson did last season. Totally agree. I wouldn’t mind us doing that and getting another striker in who can lead the line. I know Campbell likes to lead the line, but he strikes me as a team player who will do as he is ask...

I don't think for one moment Thompson said: "This is what I'd like to say" and then reeled off all this club going in only one direction, long admired them and love the owner and manager spiel. It reads exactly what it is... a pre-written Pride Of press release to tell everyone they are the best. T...

Gould from Spendy is a decent keeper isn’t he? Could be an option if we don’t go down the route of a loanee, although I could see Hemming on loan as an option.

Re: Omar Holness

Totally disagree with that decision. Very sad to see him go. I think he’s capable of playing at a higher level. Hope it doesn’t come back to bite us on the backside.

Chris Elliott gone also, which feels harsh. On a lighter note, Ainge is gone.
