Re: Sports village

Wonder if the land next to rugby club is for sale ,(to the right of the building and next to the road, and think still owned by the council?), and big enough for a ground? could it be an option, as reasonable walk from the town where we are and we would not have to raise cash for car park etc. Just ...

Re: Next season’s captain

I have watched McNulty a couple of times this season, obviously got a footballing brain, but over weight and slow plus prone to be little bit underhand possibly when marking an attacker. Quick forwards caught him out, so would not want him to be honest, (and doubt we could afford him). Also was not ...

Re: Next season’s captain

York also had Steve McNulty at cente half who was vastly experienced at a higher level so may have had a hand in the low goals against?

Re: Away kit poll

Not buying the home one this year, (normally buy home and away shirts), as too close to last few years ones I have, also voted for orange, but will be ordering green one today.

Re: Martin Jesper

Same as Old Git, I thought Martin Jasper did well for us. He brought some stability into running the club, (no disrespect to the previous board who were volunteers and had a hard job balancing the books with the carry over of debt). He always seemed to make it to a few Darlo games after he left to. ...

Re: Away kit poll

Orange one for me, burgundy shirt is to close to the one I have from a couple of years back. As I wont be buying the home shirt next season, (too close to the ones I have from last few years), but i would buy the orange one. The whole point of changing the shirts is commercial and raising money for ...

Re: The Team 20/21 season

Not sure I would want Joe Tait back either. Seem to remember he jumped ship from us to Spennymoor, then never signed to renew contract at Spenny to apparently go abroad but signed for York. AA has said he wants players who want to play for the Quakers, not sure Tait fits that description (have watch...

Re: New deals for Donawa,Hatfield,Rivers,Holmes,Hedley,Reid,Storey,Campbell,Laing,Wheatley,Liddle,Watson,Atkinson

With Tez, I assume that he has two things to think about:- Will he be first choice centre half? I am not sure he will and that may be a factor in his discussion. His contract offer will have been reduced, one assumes in line with the others, (last of the large wage players?), and what we can afford ...

Re: Potential new signings

From what Shed 7 said, and he "knows for a fact" one assumes that Spennymoors budget was considerably smaller than ours, therefore it must be the "vibes" that good players went there for. We cant compete with that if "true". As for Styche and Ange he could be right on that money, but we could not af...

Re: Potential new signings

Maguire played few games for York last year due to injury and therefore never really made an impact with the game or fans. AA mentioned during the season that some players struggle for injuries when training full time, so maybe Maguire himself has rethought his position, (think he worked for his mat...

That is a pity about Partick thistle, went to see them play Ross County a while back after a night out with friends from Inverness.

Re: New initiative by the club 'Virtual Tickets'

I will donate for the away games I would have gone to. Would have thought we should be able to claim the 80% of wages though. Wonder if the players may also be prepared to take a cut? (I know they don't have to), as they wont be training or playing so putting no time in and the fans will have to dig...

Re: Darlington V Farsley

Just one note of interest on the way out Galbraith was smiling and laughing with a fan, (may have been embarrassed laugh?) And Donawa looked a bit dejected. Hope the team can pull themselves back up after that disappointment. Or just a laugh - it is only football after all. That is true indeed.

It was a strange game yesterday. Thought we played some fantastic football, and could have been in double figures if we could take our chances. Bit like Bradford PA game. Elliot had a bad game but it does not make him a bad keeper, although this will have knocked his confidence . The defence did not...

Their pairing at centre half had him permanently covered, often having hands on him and stopping him getting past. To be honest they cover...
