Re: Darlo v York

Re Hodgie’s pre match Q and A session, I wonder if anyone will quiz him on Singh’s failed takeover attempt and his part in it- or would this prove to be a little controversial. More like Pointless Surely that is hosted by a different Armstrong? :lol: Am disappointed our AA is not teaching the lads,...

No, that was Flixton, think it was Northwich 1874? Thommo hid in the dugout when the hail came. Horrible wasn't it? Another time we took our bikes in. Pretty sure Trafford play in Urmston, lots of pubs nearby.
They play in Flixton.

Re: Ben Hedley

If you are going to sign a right back, sign a right back. Holness is a midfielder who showed he could probably fill in at right back - why sign another? Will he get in to our midfield when Liddle fit for example? If not, then not sure I see the reasoning. One in, one out? A midfielder who can play ...

At our best we are more than capable of winning on Saturday.
At our best we would have beaten BPA, a team that had scored 1 goal and conceded 18.

Dave Penney was obviously a good manager? Hodgson also made us competitive every single year - I think it's unfair to question his ability.
No David Penney was not a good manager. He failed to get us promoted with a massive budget and then proved elsewhere how over-rated he was.

Probably because his performances were worse than shite.

There was a reason he was playing for peanuts with a team in the National League relegation zone...

Gray managed to do this in the early days, but then lost the plot with the long diagonal hoofball of later games[/quote]

I'm not sure he lost the plot. He had simply reached his limit talentwise, and when plan A didn't work, his only plan B was to revert to hoofball.
