Re: Greetings again

I looked out for you all that day but must have missed you. Glad you enjoyed your visit to our club. I have already followed you on twitter and saw the manager announcement. I see you’ve been placed at step 6 so you have a long way to go but at least you now have a club playing football again. I’ll ...

Re: October 3rd

Would be a predicament for the club in the selection of season ticket holders who would be allowed to attend if capacity limited to 300 as I think we have already sold 500. Already getting fewer games than last season, so it would be hard to bear if it was further limited. Personally, don't have an...

Re: Incoming goalkeeper

You’re operating from the false assumption that Woodgate was a competent manager who knew what he was doing. He clearly didn’t and was out of his depth and Gibbo acted before it was too late. Boro would be in league one now if he hadn’t. Several of my mates are Boro season ticket holders and feel t...

Re: FA Cup

A couple of seasons ago the season started with the FA cup for steps 5 and 6 and the move was very unpopular and FA said they wouldn’t do it again. Well this is now the case for us but these are of course unprecedented times.

Why not?

If people are expected to travel to work they can travel to a footy match.

Re: FA Cup

Good news that the FA are running the FA Cup as normal next year. Had been fears they'd try and reduce the qualifying rounds to make up for the late start. 889 teams have applied to take part, with only 736 places, meaning draws will take place to establish which Step 6 sides enter (previously woul...

Re: Sports village

No wonder the SV is not going ahead if the front page of today’s Echo is correct. DBC is reported to be facing an 8 million black hole in its finances due to Covid. No chance they will risk investing in a fanciful scheme like that proposed by DMP. We have a stark choice, either we try to develop BM...

Re: Increasingly unlikely playoffs

Still plenty of uncertainty according to the Price of Football podcast yesterday.

Re: Potential new signings

I see the Mackems have let 24 go. The majority of these are players aged under 24 so presumably haven't had much if any first team involvement. I've no idea who they are though I'm sure others will. From the number alone though you'd think there may be one or two that could perhaps do a job for us?...

Re: Increasingly unlikely playoffs

Not much discussion about the NLS clubs intentions. If they don’t produce four interested in playing, the whole deal is of including the north division!

Re: Increasingly unlikely playoffs

Would be a bonus if Boston Utd went up through the play-offs as it is like King's Lynn, a helluva way to go for an away game. Equally, Brackley would not be a great loss, although quite a few Darlo exiles in the South do make it to that fixture. Thought Chester were against play-offs due to the cos...

Re: Playoffs

I see York have just put in a counter suggestion (unsurprisingly) that those teams finishing 2nd in both NLN and NLS get promoted automatically, and the original intended 4 teams are relegated from the NL. Have to say I think they have a decent case. Is it the case again that the NL have more votes...
