Re: Merry Christmas Quakers

Is that Hartlepool that you talk of, what has actually gone on there, isn't their chairman the ex Darlo chairman? You would not believe the attitude of some of our supporters towards dodgey looking 'white knights.' its like they seem to think some out of town bloke is going to come riding into town...

Re: Merry Christmas Quakers

I got to my first game on Boxing day where we came back from 2-0 down to win 3-2. I loved it and found the ground at Raccy Boro more than adequate. It felt like a Bury game and my passion for the team was just the same as it always was. The recent developments because of Covid make it look like the...

Re: We are on the box

Honestly feel we are a far more compelling tie than Tranmere - Brackley as well, so a little bit aggrieved we aren’t on BBC Two.

Re: DARLAS - The Ted Forster Episode

ahhhh great memories.

it does show the desperation in general of your average football fan. the slightest glimmer of hope and potential millions to elevate your team to higher echelons.

Pools currently going through this with RS. Mind, at least he did show up and buy a club.

Re: Swindon away

What impressed me was that we rarely looked threatened after going 2-1 up. It wasn't as if we were hanging on late in the game. It was a really disciplined and professional performance. Charman was absolutely immense - he'll get picked up by a league club for sure. His hold-up play and powerful run...

Re: Raj Singh finally speaks to the poolies

It's very similar to us 10 years ago. Very non-committal, bemoans the lack of investors and discusses working with the Council. No doubt the Council will be the scapegoat for Singh when he walks away, despite the fact the Council are doing Pools a favour by not allowing him to own any land/the stad...

Plans afoot for a salary cap in the National League as well. 900k limit in the National League, 600k at our level is what’s been proposed. a good idea. wonder how it will be policed though? will some clubs 'get round' this by adding extras to the overall benefits package for players (free houses, c...

See Kyle Lafferty also released by Sunderland what a signing he would be but I guess will find a higher level club.
I reckon Lafferty will be on between £6,000 - £8,000 a week.

He's also a loose canon so one to avoid.

They have faced massive struggles since and have done well to survive an...
