Re: Home Kit Vote

I think Cardiff City playing in red was less of a disaster than any of these.

Re: Boston Game To Be Replayed

Although Boston may count themselves unlucky, it's the correct decision. As Gramps said, where do you draw the line otherwise? To be fair, the goal came very quickly after the injury so I wouldn't accuse their players of unsporting behaviour regarding this particular incident. Normally, when there i...

Re: Moving swiftly on....

I realised today how much I want to see the inside of a stadium again.

Or will they automatically just ban us because the r...

Re: Darlington V Telford

Well that wasn't much fun to watch second half. First things first, and most importantly we won't win games giving away the two goals we did today. We invite pressure onto ourselves at the back by failing to win the first header and take control of the situation. On the ball I actually thought Lain...

Re: Ground share

There's another angle to this.
If we do move back to Neasham Road, I hope the allowed capacity is as high as possible.
There will be a lot of football fans desperate to see live action but denied the chance due to imposed limits at their normal stamping ground.
This could actually be an opportunity.

Re: Sports village

Something very simple that the Rugby Club could do as a signal of goodwill is to allow the Football Club to put a sign up at the entrance on Grange Road. I know some people think it is not worth making a fuss about but to me it is symbolic of our relationship. We are not even allowed to advertise t...

Re: Thommo

One thing I’ve never understood with certain Spenny fans is why they’re so keen to deny they’re bankrolled. I don’t get it. It’s actually more effective to just admit it, as it shuts down that line of attack much quicker. “We’re bankrolled, so what?” There’s not actually any issue with them living ...

I wonder if the new contracts have some caveat attached should games not be played until, say, next year. It will only be a good place to work so long as it is solvent.

Re: Thommo

By the way, if it was the Manager's decision not to keep him on terms which he would accept, then of course that's his priviledge and what he is there for.
Doesn't stop me being disappointed though.

There's an assumption here that it's about money. Where he ends up might give a clue to that being the case. Phrases like "he was on double the money of some other players" are meaningless.

I thought Thompson should have started in many of the games that he didn't this season. He ended up coming on at times when a miracle was required and (like any human being) couldn't always deliver it.
Very disappointed.
