Re: TW - Learning His Trade

The stats don't really look good for Wright no matter how you cut them...has he ever had a third season somewhere though? It probably is blind faith, because there isn't really a logical reason but I'm kind of happy to stick with him and see what happens. I don't actually think he would take us dow...

One day your dream will come to pass .... i can hear the words "i told you so"

Trotman extends contract

Positive move by club.

Could even suggest Tommy Wright staying and making sound plans for next season.

Re: Champs

Spennymoor: Should they gain promotion, then the question of sustainability can be answered once and for all. Could just break them.

I recently met a Stockport fan in Malta, he seemed to think despite all their resources promotion might be a step to far right now.

Re: Post AGM update.

The only additonal thing i’d be tempted to do would be to go out to all of the owners i.e. the 1000 DFSCG members and ask them all to donate a one off £20. Ultimately if they want to own their club then they need to be prepared to cover a shortfall that a single owner would have to. These people mus...

Re: Hartlepool match confirmed at BM

It has become increasingly obvious to me that the defence has little or no confidence in Maddison. His positioning is at best suspect, organising a solid wall, which he then seems to hide behind is clearly a skill as yet un mastered. Worst of all his reaction time is really not that good. During the...

Re: John Tempest standing down

He will be a bigger miss to the club than Styche.

Odd how things have changed. There is no real benefit as I can see in having any kind of alliance with this propos...

Let’s break it down. Say there was £100K in the budget for commercial revenue and we were forecasting only £50K so a £50K shortfall. The business then has to come up with a plan to either close that shortfall OR re-adjust other areas of the business to make up for that shortfall - reduce playing bu...

Unless we bring a striker in Saunders is not going to get us the goals to keep us in this league. Total agreement.

I see he’s left Sacramento and now back in Darlo, worth another shot? Squandered several opportunities. My opinion is he does not have the physique to match the skill he has. Good luck to him.
