Re: Potential new signings

I heard he is keen on staying in the north-east. Perhaps Bishop Auckland could be in for him?

Re: The Close Season drags onwards...

I refused to get drawn into an argument over some of those so called "protestors" I realise not all of them were there to cause trouble but as was the case in London in 2011 it soon turned into opportunist thuggery. It would seem many of them thought COVID-19 had simply vanished into thin air but a...

I thought Omar was getting better each time he played and a midfield 3 alongside Wheatley and Hatfield would be as good as anything in our league so disappointing if he goes.Could be that AA prefers a different formation in a 442 and deems Omar surplus as we still have Reid and Atkinson. Anyway, to...

Annoying if the local rag does not understand what we are doing there is no hope. This could be portrayed as a good news story. Fans rally round their club.

Re: Omar Holness

Holness & Bascombe filled a hole when injuries had ravaged the squad and wish them both well in their future career, however they were at best only utility players. Donawa is a more gifted player & could turn a game so would want him in the squad for next season. Certainly when the 3 of them were a...

Nothing battling about that win. We were outstanding today. As has been said earlier, we should have scored several more and thought Thommo had finally scored 'that' goal with a diving header.

It is essential we keep Hatfield and Wheatley.

Losing Galbraith and Thommo could be the way to make that happen.

Definitely a point gained rather than two lost. We weren't at the races for large parts of the game but battled hard. Campbell's work rate was again fantastic - and still he gets slagged off by some of our own. A goal of the season contender from Hatfield - and a miss of the season contender for Kid...
