Re: Time for Gray to finish the job.....

My recollection of the Penney era was that it was rather dour. However, he did have a top class striker in Abbott for whom we spent 100k which is ridiculous really. Penney's budget pretty much guaranteed a competitive team.

Re: Who do we fancy then?

Andy Toman is an interesting choice - what is his experience of management, did he do a bit at Hartlepool? I'm not sure that musical chairs with other managers at this level is a good idea but if we're after a local bloke the field looks a bit bare. Toman lives up north presumably but what's his re...

Re: Tommy Wright

Before the long trip back yesterday I wanted Tommy to leave. However on reflection we as fans are a fickle bunch and shouldn’t rush to a quick decision. If we had won we would all be saying how good Tommy is. He has had to deal with losing some key players this season to balance the books, I doubt ...

What is the point in spunking millions on Blackwell meadows for a two sided ground we won’t own, or spunking even more millions on a new ground which would still be objected to by half the fan base for “not being Feethams” when there is a perfectly adequate stadium we can rent on the edge of town? ...

Re: Netcafe - 14 December 2018

Becoming effectively a farm club to the big 3 is an interesting thought and similar to the American model of sport. At the end of the day if it is the only recruitment strategy that can help us be solvent then so be it.

Re: Darlo odds

Put £10 each way on Darlo today with BetFred at 25/1. I reckon we'll win tomorrow and you won't get 25/1 after the game. The bookies won't shift the odds for winning a game against inferior rated opposition at home. The Spennymoor game would be more of a signal for the bookies if we won that. I thi...

Enjoyed the game lsat night and pleased the hearts collection went well. For me, after watching us get stretched defensively in the first half a holding midfielder may be a necessity rather than an option. On a positive note Ainge was superb aerially, the new triallist (no 12) looked a real player a...

Absolute disaster of a move. The West Ham action group videos make interesting viewing. The saddest part of the losses experienced by local business because of this Karen Brady car crash project. I would argue that west ham is actually no more.

For Harrogate they're support was decent, they did have fans down the clubhouse side and up in hospitality. For them it was a decent following, considering the crowds they got last season.

I've been given an old signed football but is proving impossible to identify the playing season. The only signature I think i can read is Shelton martis plus a squad number. Can anybody confirm that martis number was 12 or a source where I can check this. Martis played 2005/06 .

The echo said Saturday that there were 2 potential signings from the same NNL club. If lowson is one who would be the other.

We are a big strong striker away from being a solid team, really. Could maybe also do with a little b****** in midfield. Their sending off was a funny one.
