Re: Darlington V Stockport

I am with Shawry, I thought there player had fouled ours just before Trots pulled him back but it was a silly mistake by him after being booked for kicking the ball a short distance away to waste a bit of time (although even that booking seemed harsh when there player booted the ball away nearly th...

Re: Darlington V Stockport

Maybe that’s why he never brought any subs on against Chester, what he has available clearly aren’t good enough.

Re: Darlington V Chorley

Almost like it’s a bad decision taking off a CM (Palmer) for a winger who offers absolutely nothing (Henshall) when trying to close out a win against a good side... In fairness the way the ref was I could see palmer getting sent off otherwise. I'm disappointed to drop the points so late, but I thin...

Cast iron certainty that BTB will take a big hit next season,certainly if Wright is still here,so hopefully the loan system will be used from the off.Two or three of the same quality as Smith and Nelson would be a great addition.

Re: Alfreton away

The Non League Paper is probably right. I just enjoyed the way we battled against a team from "land of the giants" and by the 2nd half we were reasonably dominant and should have probably snuck a win. Wasn't really a good game for a neutral though. I thought first half was a non event, but 2nd half...

Re: Alfreton away

His goal return for us as a central striker gives a slight hint that this is his preferred position. Agreed. He looked isolated at times when out on the wings, very much a lone wolf but a capable finisher. He needed some decent balls to feed on, & when on his game, one of the best in NLN. Since bei...

Re: Alfreton away

Seems like a match where the loanees we've had recently would have thrived. However, just lacking that extra quality has probably cost us 2pts. TW has to work to bring in some players of similar quality if we want to see out the season on or more positive footing rather than be dragged into a scrap...

What they did do is hold onto the ball extremely well for about 10 minutes without actually threatening.

Re: Sports Village (latest)

A 4G pitch at Mowden will have nothing to do with the football club and we won't see any benefit in finances for that reason. The only benefit is that matches maybe on during some bad weather. The negative is that if we did make it to the top of the conference, we would have no option to remove the...
