Re: Simply not good enough

Let’s remember that DJ and others have said we’re at least thinking about some sort of hybrid model next season. If we are, I’d have thought we’d want to start from a stronger financial position than usual rather than spending everything. So maybe there’s a longer term plan. Sent from my iPhone usin...

So we have no first teamers apart from a goalkeeper.
I think Hedley has a one match ban this Saturday. Surce: SuperLes!

Re: Walsall V Darlington FA Cup First Round Proper

Nice problem to have. The starting 11 are all contributing, Thompson looked good when he came on at the weekend and I have to say Donowa looks the business every time he gets on the pitch at the moment. Almost scored again on Saturday with what would have been the best back heel since Les McJannet! ...

Re: Liam Connell - Boost the Budget

Well all I’d say is that defensively we have gone from looking really shaky and vulnerable to extremely solid and controlled. That could be the effect of Connell replacing Elliott, the emergence of Storey, or the return of Wheatley to add protection but it has made us look a totally different propos...

Re: Hereford....

Not a bad game to watch, very frustrating at times, can’t blame Hereford for their tactics they did well to hang on. Thought our lads played well, just seem to run out of ideas. The only thing I think we missed today was the Laing type passes from the back, O’Neill and Campbell were making some gre...

There’s no chance of 4 or 5000 there. They’ll view it like we would a game against Mickleover or someone. They couldn’t be less interested in it.

Re: Josh Heaton

There was a decent run of games in Heaton’s last spell where he was laughably good. Won everything, distributed the ball effortlessly and barely looked like he was breaking sweat. It was no surprise we got decent money for him.

Re: What is clear....

The soccer centre was about much more than an academy I don't doubt that but the fact that some of its funding would have been from the academy side of it could have made the difference between being viable or not. Other than the word “academy” being used in the title it was really nothing like eit...

Ah, my mistake. Still, 2 whole leagues. Surely the principles he has successfully applied at Dunston are transferable to a higher league team?

I’m by no means sticking up for anyone but if we’re comparing budgets then you have to surely include the players Wright has sold? He has a pretty big transfer surplus. Not saying that has a relevance to whether he’s the right man for the job but it is surely relevant if we’re comparing with Gray. S...

However Burn has proved to be a terrible signing, Maddison was a poor signing as was Henshall, Ainge was signed as a striker but that never worked out although he is a very effective central defender, wh...
