Re: 5 Subs allowed next season.

If its like the premier atm, its 3 opportunities to make a max 5 subs. Because of that, i think its a crap rule. It was ludicrous that Man U had to finish the game with 10 men, due to injury, despite 'only' having made 4 subs.

Stick to 3, its plenty.

Re: Season VOIDED

Id be inclined to finish this season when they can, and use the time from now to work out a different way for next season to work so that there is still some football, even if its reduced to playing each team once.

Not everyone is as cautious with their contracts. Kings Lynn have just signed striker Dayle Southwell and given him a two-and-a-half-year contract.

No, why would we? He was mutually released from his contract. He wanted to go, we wanted him off the wage bill. We can't have it both ways.

Re: Help before I become as bad as him !!!!!

You can set ignore for posters.

I'd question the validity of any statement that begins "I'm not violent,but" as it sounds almost like "I'm not racist, but" and my experience of people using that phrase would indicate otherwise.

Joking aside, the fact that Armstrong has now brought a decent core of his Blyth team with him (and hopefully a couple more to come) bodes really well for next season.

The problem would arise if the female manager took a fancy to one of our players.
