Re: Telford

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. On a quite dreadful pitch we played some lovely one touch stuff and in the final few minutes it was real 'o...

Re: Retention for next year

It is essential we keep Hatfield and Wheatley.

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

Not saying I want that to happen but........

Re: Hereford

Agree Holness should be in our starting line-up. There wasn't too much wrong with our midfield trio of Hatfield, Wheatley and Holness earlier in the season, was there?

Re: Kidderminster 1-1 Darlington

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...

Re: Guiseley

It will be interesting to see Armstrong's stance on Thommo, Galbraith, Wheatley and Trotman all of whom will have been on larger contracts prior to is arrival. I would assume they will be offered reduced terms if they wish to stay. Throw in Ainge who will be out the door end of the season as well a...

We were awful. Shot-shy up front and poor at the back. They had three big men in defence and we had three small lads up front. No contest. This 'I can't find a striker' from AA is starting to wear a bit thin now. We have been playing since August without a recognised striker of our own in the club. ...

Laing might well find himself starting alongside Storey.

Galbraith did not look good when he came off yesterday and although AA said it was a kick and not a twist, he could be struggling.

Indeed. There is absolutely nothing wrong with it at all.
Other than not being able to see the goal line of course, a major flaw.
If you don't close your eyes then you should have no problems. Give it a try, it makes games far more interesting.
