Re: Darlo v Gateshead

Thing is, if you start Rivers it has to be at the expense of either Campbell or Sousa. You cannot put him in the middle with Hatfield and Wheatley, we would be overrun in the middle. Based on the existing system, I think the team laid out by JE93 is our strongest eleven. The question is are we playi...

I doubt it is the seats that raise the running costs per se (although they do need cleaning /replacing if worn). It is more that more likely that more seats means bigger concrete and steel infrastructures which do need substantial maintenance. Also having more seats also means more service faciltiie...

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.

Re: Second Time Around

I think we'd need to specify which 'version' of said players we would take!

For example, Adam Reed looked a world beater before diving off to Blackburn. When he returned to looked like he had spent the time between in ballet school.

Well, aye, if you replaced him with De Gea then we'd probably be top half.

But to suggest any single player has cost us a playoff berth is madness. We are bang average / gash all over the pitch.
