Re: More local competition for good players now at Blyth

That's quite a few of us that are worried. I think you are right to be a bit sceptical. When these characters come in and start using phrases like “Sleeping Giant ” it suggests to me that they think there is a lot of untapped potential support that is going to be available at the first sign of succ...

Re: Boston v Darlington 20/02/24

I see Siddik went off with a hamstring injury tonight. It appears he missed 9 months in 22/23 with a serious hamstring injury whilst at Crystal Palace. Another player who cannot stay fit. Thank you, Josh Gowling. This season has been one big - totally unavoidable - nightmare. And apparently Sukar i...

Re: Boston v Darlington 20/02/24

Good effort in the first half, but after the 2nd goal went in around 65 minutes, we just faded tamely away. Unfortunately, the old failings again showed through. A failure to take our chances, and then paying the price for defensive lapses. Surely Curry has to start up front alongside Main. By the t...

Re: Boston v Darlington 20/02/24

H/t 1 nil Boston. We have played well and created some decent chances, unfortunately Nelson has missed a couple of really good opportunities. They have had very few clear chances, the goal conceded was poor. Looked like Siddick should have cleared the ball in the build up.

Re: South Shields v Darlo

Having watched the highlights and seen the sendings off again I agree that the first one was the correct decision. It was a long way from the goal, but there was no covering defender and no legitimate attempt to win the ball, so think the referee was brave but made the right call. The second red was...

I think someone posted on another topic that Jacob Hazel is currently injured, and he I noticed he wasn’t in the Boston squad that beat Bishop Stortford on Saturday. Hopefully, then we will be spared the curse of the former striker scoring against us.

I think the way they play will actually suit us. We do play decent football and it should be a good game.

Quakerlad, I think he’s called Stuart.
I think you are referring to Stuart Armstrong. He actually asks meaningful questions and doesn’t try to answer the question himself. Maybe the club prefer Ray’s banal approach.

You can waffle on all you want with your anti Armstrong agenda but his track record stands up well and we would have ended up mid table. Gowling was appointed with a poorer win percentage ratio. That is stupidity. Not sure on what planet we would have finished mid table under Armstrong. He had mana...

The description of a regular poster on here suggests a certain person to me, and if it is who I think it is, it is about time that individual was banned for a long time, because he repeatedly brings the club into disrepute.

If it wasn't for Hatfield telling him what he should do the ref would have carried on with the game with a player on two yellows. Never seen anything like it.
