Re: What is clear....

Closed due to increasing rents at the george reynolds industrial estate Or a conflict of interest with his new employers? If the rent goes up then put the prices up to help cover the difference would have been a more straightforward option than closure, if thats all the issue was. Where would a con...

Re: Darlington's 'demise'....

Good afternoon all, This is a 100% genuine post, which I've been asked to put here by Brad Groves. I'm Adam Brown, Head of PR & Media at Spennymoor Town. Brad has been in touch with the Northern Echo this morning to voice his disappointment in the quote about "Darlington's Demise". His complaint ce...

Re: Darlington's 'demise'....

Haven’t read it but I’m not really too bothered about them. Wouldn’t mind if they go up, actually think Jason Ainsley seems an alright fella to me. Hard to think of them as rivals although I do enjoy the away games at their place. True fact: I just realised I have never met a Spennymoor fan live. I’...

Re: New Manager Poll

Well of course, but realistically there are several managers we could bring in with much more experience of this level and a history of building solid teams and getting results. Like I said, he would be a massive risk. Yeah to be honest I’m not thinking of anyone in particular but I’m extremely ope...

Re: New Manager Poll

Ah, my mistake. Still, 2 whole leagues. Surely the principles he has successfully applied at Dunston are transferable to a higher league team? We bang on about utilising the NL more for young upcoming players, yet I would think the gulf in quality is less relevant to a manager than a player. 2 whol...

Re: Next season

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...

Re: FANS NETCAFE -this Friday evening.

I wouldn't say a total disaster as I think Nicholson and Elliott are good players and an asset. 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...

Re: Do The Wright Thing

I can't see us changing Wright at this stage if we stay up (which should be likely), I just don't see him learning from what most seem to be able to see. Not if Ashton Utd pull off potential results like currently, if they beat Chorley we'll only be 6pts ahead. No doubt we'll get humped by Chorley ...

It was probably supposed to be as much a 4-4-1-1 as anything last night but invariably it was a 4-5-1 most of the time which meant when anyone in midfield got the ball with an opponent in their face the only forward option we had was Ainge who isn't physically able to get behind anyone, can't run th...

Well first of all I'm not claiming that he is going to be a success, maybe he won't be - I just think he needs more than a couple of games here and a couple of games there. I think he is very good in the air and for some reason every man and his dog seems to ignore this - but yes he could do with a...

Re: Thoughts on Kneeshaw?

Thought he looked decent last time around at the level we were at. I read something in another thread recently suggesting his attitude wasn’t right but I have to say that is not my recollection. I hope his trial goes well and he can add something.

Re: Where we are after 25 league games

I guess it's slight progress overall although in fairness off quite a reduced wage bill. There wasn't really a lot of room for error with the summer's recruitment and unfortunately some of the marquee signings Les mentions above have been poor so far. I'd hope that this is the last season we take ch...

Re: Tommy's interview - seething

Thing is, we’re competing against some teams that are training full time, so the limited time the team are together has to be tight as a drum to minimise the disadvantage we already have.

Well we let Lewis Wing Andy Curtis Edwards go too so I’m not sure that argument stands up.

To be honest I’d be interested due to our lack of bodies and being worth a punt rather than assuming he’s going to be a guaranteed world beater.
