Re: The Team 20/21 season

Would either of those still be necessary for a short term pandemic contingency period if it were for a couple of months?

Re: Playoffs

I see York have just put in a counter suggestion (unsurprisingly) that those teams finishing 2nd in both NLN and NLS get promoted automatically, and the original intended 4 teams are relegated from the NL. Have to say I think they have a decent case. Is it the case again that the NL have more votes...

Re: Playoffs

The reason as I understand it is that the NLN and NLS were not classed as “elite sport” by the DCMS.

The NL was considered elite so they can go ahead with play offs.

Re: The Team 20/21 season

Tait wasn’t good enough to always get a start for us several years ago, I’d be disappointed with that one.

Re: Thommo

No problem with Thommo leaving although I thought DFC might have deserved a bit better than a screenshot from his iPhone and then a couple of narky digs in his statement. But from a football point of view no problem. It’s very unusual for a player to stay on reduced terms and I can’t blame him for a...

Re: Omar Holness

Totally trust Alun’s judgement but I’d say based on the season that’s just gone he was deserving of his starting place and we looked a better team with him in it.

Re: Today's results Saturday March 14th 2020

1 the forward initiates the contact with the defender
2. Can’t tell from this angle
3. Get the ball but could have been classed as reckless
4. He falls over or dives.

Re: Spennymoor Players - Charged with betting offences

Let’s be clear, everybody who plays football knows about these rules, I mean everyone. I don’t care what punishment they get or what they bet on but if their defence is that they didn’t know about it then I’m afraid they are lying. They thought they would get away with it and wouldn’t be caught. Ign...

Re: Retention for next year

Trotman is an interesting one - was our best player by a country mile last season. Obviously he might have other priorities now but it’s easy to forget just how good he was last year in a pretty crap team.

If Scott Wilson knows Luke Trotman well enough to judge his dedication and integrity, or indeed has spoke to the club to ask for their view then fair enough. But I doubt he’s done either, and if not, he’s just being a local journalist writing a pretty sneering column piece about someone he hasn’t bo...

Owld Marmite Styche. Certainly has more failures than success stories at the clubs he’s been at. No doubt Tommy knew how to make him tick and many others obviously don’t. How much that impacted on the rest of the squad though we’ll never know. He ticked for a while but in the last few months of his...

Exactly, during the extended half time break which you can see by comparing to the photos at the other end at the same time. Polarbear knows this, he’s just trolling.

Got to agree with Darlo Pete about the 2 turnstiles. That was another amateurish thing. Didn't believe that if there was only 863 of our fans, that there was around 1400 spenny fans.

This is a fair point actually but one of the problems here is that you can’t see the bottom end of terracing from anywhere down that side due to the gantry and the fact that a fence cuts in to the away end half way down.

Fence was knackered after goal due to crowd surge as no crush barriers, mistake from Spenny originally not making it all ticket and then steward opening up that part.

I’m having a hard time reading people dismissing an idea they know nothing about. It’s infantile.

Wait and see what’s proposed and then argue your point based on some analysis of what you read.
