Re: Boston v Darlington 20/02/24

It is genuinely sad to see Nelson such a shadow of his former self. In his first spell he was electric, but genuine misfortune with injuries has ruined him. Living off a very good loan spell from around five years ago. Done very well to even be playing again after his injuries, but he’s not up to i...

2-0 game over, final hopes fading for those who still had any….
Plenty of winnable matches left, we need to make sure we don't go 1-0 down in any of them.

Tonight is just tragic, sounds like we played well and got nowt again.

Re: South Shields v Darlo

Just watched the extended highlights and to be honest that second red was not even a yellow IMO.

I'd have been boiling if that had happened to us.

He says he will be playing again this season despite suffering setbacks in his recovery from a bad injury. Is said to be one of the higher earners at Kiddy. Some player if fit and still not yet 30 but no doubt the injuries have taken a toll. I could imagine he's looking for part-time now. As well a...

The bit that really grates on me is how DJ and the board reacted to Mark Beck leaving. We were told targets were unaffordable, expectations were dampened, and ultimately AA’s budget was reduced. At the time we nodded along but given the disastrous appointment of JG who was given a significantly inc...

This was always the argument against sacking Gowling, just throwing good money after bad in a losing cause
Let's be clear, there was no argument against sacking Clowning.

The only argument was that we didn't boot giggles soon enough.

Who are you going for exactly? Salkeld, Curry, Rivers, Nelson? Sadly, all of the above have been given shedloads of opportunities and have proven to not be good enough. Curry has been injured for much of the season so it's unfair to say he's had shedloads of opportunities. Although yesterday he did...

Let's be brutally honest here. We're going down. I didn't believe it until yesterday, in fact at half time yesterday I was confident we would win. But the old weaknesses showed again yesterday.

With just 8 home games left, it is really important we get a good run of home form going. The last one, when we beat Hereford was more like it, and we need more of the same on Saturday against Alfreton. We will have to see exactly who is available, but would think we might go with a back 4 of Griff...

Read my reply properly.
By the way, break clauses only apply to property contracts.
Anyone who has ever worked for an agency can tell you that their 6 month contract means nothing. You can be let go at any time, with only a week's notice, for a million and one different reasons.
