Re: Gateshead game...

Of course Gateshead centre-half’s dealt with Campbell better. Williamson was outstanding and so he should be - 2 years ago he was a Championship player and the season before that he was in the Premier League. We shouldn’t be comparing their defence to ours because of that very reason. Of course it’...

Re: Farsley V Darlington Match Thread

Not too downhearted to be honest, the pitch suited their style to a tee, the total opposite for us, we will surely not defend as poorly again hopefully and if so then Josh Heaton comes in.Atkinson will stiffen the midfield and some of our football in the second half I thought was good and we could h...

Great news, very happy with this squad of players and particularly pleased for Josh to return and kick start his career under AA.

Re: Josh Heaton

Harrogate have just allowed a centre half to leave and it doesn't seem like they are keen on Heaton so I don't see him ending up anywhere else. If he does sign it will give AA a selection headache as he seems to have penciled in Laing as his 1st choice centre back. It's been a long time since we've...

Re: Darlington away vs Bishop Auckland

Lock the Heritage Park doors and get Bell to sign on the dotted line! Agreed he looked quality when he came on on the second half and took his second goal superbly. I’d never heard of him but if there’s a chance to sign him up we should give him a go! Holmes also looked excellent! Sent from my iPho...

Re: Adam Campbell

Wonder who will be alongside AA on the sidelines, cannot imagine he will be on his own, also the academy appointment must be due and see if Whitey will still be with us.Hope he is.

Re: Adam Campbell

Still think we're lacking more of a target man in the team up who can hold the ball up front to take some pressure off the defence when needed. Will be surprised if we don’t have a big CF on trial against Motherwell along with a couple more midfielders,so looking forward to seeing how we shape up i...

Re: Chris Elliott

Signed, according to the Echo. Backup goalkeeper everywhere he's been, as far as I can see. Wonder if we'll go for him, and he'll compete with a loan keeper from Boro as was the rumour. Hemming again, perhaps? He will be first choice according to AA. Saw a couple of videos of Alfreton and he looked...

South Shields seem to rate Connell highly, reckon he could end up at Shildon with Gray if he does not fancy the travel.

Am travelling in hope rather than expectation. We've drawn both our games there so far, would be great if that trend continued. If we do lose it must only be by the odd goal as our goal difference v those below us is effectively an extra point and we need to maintain that. Maybe the better surface ...

TW has put together a fairly lightweight and fragile squad and I can very easily see us losing against Chester, drawing at Nuneaton and then losing at Stockport.
