Re: Darlington v Gainsborough Trinity FA Trophy

Some don’t understand the work which Campbell puts in for the side, and just what a clever player he is at times. 7 goals & 6 assists before he had to be moved out-wide to balance the side out in the middle. We look like an efficient team, just missing that centre-forward who can do a bit of everyth...

Re: Liam Connell - Boost the Budget

Most people are having a right twist on at South Shields for wanting a fee for a player who is contracted to them and belongs to them now feel free to correct me if I'm wrong but when Phil Turnbull fell out of favour with Tommy wright I don't remember us letting him sign up for the tynesiders free ...

Re: Liam Connell - Boost the Budget

Remarkably disrespectful to the rest of the squad. The emergence of Storey , Liddle occupying his correct position, Hedley having proved more than useful at right back, Wheatley coming back to his best, none of this contributes to our recent improvement or leads to us finishing higher than 13/14th....

Re: Liam Connell - Boost the Budget

Depends if you’re happy with 13th/14th place or not. We all want the club to finish as high as possible but we also have to be sensible with what we spend money on too. Elliott is not a bad keeper but Connell is better on what we have seen. However the deal has to be right for the club and we cant ...

Re: Liam Connell - Boost the Budget

A reasonable fee is fuck all, for a 33 year old who is out of contract in 5 months. If Shields won't extend his loan, or let us sign him for nowt - then they can go and fuck themselves and we'll go back in for him at the end of the season. Obviously I'd like us to sign Connell, but to be fair Ellio...

Re: Darlington V Kidderminster

If you look at our record against teams that actually kept 11 on the pitch under TW, then it is very poor: 13-18-29 That’s a win percentage of 21.66% It was even worse in the 18/19 season, at 20.51%. If you have that over a season you get relegated. Thankfully the opposition kept on getting players ...

Re: Darlington V Kidderminster

I'm pretty sure everybody can agree after witnessing a proper solid, grind it out win last night that this team is like chalk and cheese compared to last season's ragtag bunch of overpaid, fat, pea hearted, fancy dan failures.

Re: Josh Heaton

We're not that Blyth team though. Just because it happened once for Armstrong doesn't make it a certainty it's going to happen again. And we don't have a Maguire. Blyth didn't have a Thompson or a Hatfield. We don’t have Jameson or Maguire. Sounds obvious, but Blyth had a goalkeeper that is probabl...

Just double checked my Curzon Ashton programme according to the team sheet Paul brown was the referee.
It was Nathaniel Cox, he did the York away game last season when he had a shocker.

Re: Southport Highlights

Paul Brown - think people can judge for themselves.

For what it’s worth, I don’t think the ref had a bad game on Saturday. A few decisions which were not given for both sides but that happens at this level.

Re: Trotman out for the season

What a blow, especially so early on in the season with the games coming thick & fast. I expect Liddle will move over to right-back and Watson will fill-in at left-back. Galbraith can be used to cover LB if needed and Atkinson to cover RB. We really need to get Atkinson & Wheatley somewhere near to f...

Re: Saturday

AA mentioned in his post-match interview that Donawa has played wing-back before.

3-5-2 could be an option, AA has used this before at Blyth but to shore things up away from home.

I'd like to see a similar shape again. Liddle in for Trotman, O'Neill in for Holmes.

Re: Gateshead game...

Of course Gateshead centre-half’s dealt with Campbell better. Williamson was outstanding and so he should be - 2 years ago he was a Championship player and the season before that he was in the Premier League. We shouldn’t be comparing their defence to ours because of that very reason. Of course it’s...

Re: Gateshead game...

TW didn’t have to sell until match 14 of the season, by which point we were out of the FA Cup and our form was 4-4-5 from our opening 13 games.

Incidentally that works out at a PPG of 51; we finished on 50.

TW had to sell, but we were hardly doing well before he had to.
