Re: Team v BPA

I can't believe that people are saying field a weakened team tomorrow to concentrate on the cup. We play our best line up for both, or what's the point? And if we *must* prioritise one match over the other, then prioritise BPA. We are W3 L4 in the league (assuming the Boston result stands, which it...

Re: Team v BPA

It's personal view. My perspective is that resting key players against BPA decreases the change of victory in that game by more than it increases the chance of victory against Bristol Rovers. That doesn't feel like value for money but can see that the prize is greater in the FA Cup game. It is risk...

Re: Team v BPA

I don't disagree that "if players are fatigued" they should be rested. That is 100% what you should do. I don't sign up to resting players who are completely fit for an FA Cup. Four days is entirely relevant it is 33% more recovery time than is usually available when playing two games a week. Which...

Re: Alfreton...

Interesting "explanation" by AA as to why our keepers sometimes kick the ball out for a throw in. Said something like " we are not going to win any headers with our midgits up front so we let them have the throw in and build from there!" Whilst the odds on us winning the ball in a heading dual are ...

Re: Team v BPA

Bit fanciful given its been well reported wide-scale vaccination until March/April. 180minutes in 6 days? Is that two games in a week in old money? I'd prefer we started as strong as we can against BPA and use our subs. We have 4 days before we play again. In reference to the 180 minutes comment th...

Re: EFL Clubs to use up to 5 Subs

I doubt that anyone has ever pulled a muscle by walking. But aren't you just as likely to get a muscle injury in training as you are playing a proper match? So I don't know whether schedule of fixtures is totally responsible for such injuries. Holness for example was that a muscle injury last night...

Ryan Whitley

There’s a rumour that has surfaced on The Football Forum that we’re in for York’s goalkeeper, Ryan Whitley, on a loan deal.

AA mentioned a potential loan goalkeeper in his post-match interview after the Boro game.

Re: Maguire & Langstaff Released

AA brought Green to Blyth originally on loan, and then signed him permanently the summer before last. To be fair he gave him his first proper crack of the whip in the men’s game. There may be some loyalty playing a part in Green’s decision. That, coupled with the fact that we can offer a very good p...

Re: Attacking options

I think all six will receive ample game time. Technically we have gained three new players in Holmes, Charman and Maguire, however we also lost Thompson who played quite a few games last season. Last season, at times, we could probably have done with a couple more options going forward. We were too ...

Surely if he's been released by Gateshead, he'll not be as good as what we've already got? That’ll be the team that finished four points ahead of us with two games in hand and a +16 goal difference. Oliver made 27 appearances for them and he reached the play-offs under Blyth with AA. I also think w...

At 30? Do you judge that on the back of his two games for York against us this season where they conceded once?

Tait would improve us. He has just came off the back of 32 appearances for a club top of our league. Watson also rewarded him with a one year contract last summer - I think he had a spell as captain for them the season before too. For all he’s the pantomime villain when we come up against him, he is...
