Re: Alun Armstrong article

It's a pity that Alun didn't mention the btb in his interview, but like others have said a 'great article'. Why does it matter? It’s had a significant amount of exposure, to the point where many others are following suit now. I wouldn’t exactly call it a pity that it didn’t get a mention in a regio...

Re: Increasingly unlikely playoffs

The FA is a private club and make up their own rules. Unless this conflicts with the law of the land then there is nothing a solicitor can do to overturn any decision made by the FA. Its like when a player is on an FA charge, they word any charge in a way that means they can get you on something. An...

Re: Cartman +Burn

From what I understand Burn was offered loan moves to get some game time and he turned them down. If a player is struggling and not playing any football at all then a loan move is the best thing to do, yet he didn't take them up on it. So despite being a massive disappointment on the pitch, he made ...

Re: Northern Echo...get it wrong again

Anyways hope that's clarified a few things and I don't see why the dispute between fans of both club. Any bad feeling is probably down to the Heed fans who were waving tenners at Darlo fans the last time we met at the arena when we were in the mire financially. I have no gripe with Gateshead as a c...

Re: Northern Echo...get it wrong again

The entire sports desk team were furloughed. Ironically Loughlin was on his way out until the Teesside editor position became available.
Now he's treading on the toes of his former sports desk colleagues by doing their work while they are twiddling their thumbs.

Re: Boost the budget

There is no question Spenny fans would step up if needed. Fortunately for them their club is run in a sustainable way and they generate enough money through their large gate receipts and sponsorship. Also given their prudent financial management and the fact they do not pay over the top wages means...

Re: Thommo

One thing I’ve never understood with certain Spenny fans is why they’re so keen to deny they’re bankrolled. I don’t get it. It’s actually more effective to just admit it, as it shuts down that line of attack much quicker. “We’re bankrolled, so what?” There’s not actually any issue with them living ...

He had transformed from our match winner to a long running servant who was a great option on the bench, or performed on occasion, rather than with the consistency that marked his earlier years with us.

At the AGM DJ said our high earners would be offered reduced terms for next season and, though he didn’t name any one, most of us knew he meant Tommo, Tez and possibly Wheatley so it’s not surprising he’s decided to move on, especially as he was unlikely to be a regular starter. Wheatley would be o...

Re: Potential new signings

With regard to Elliot, when we signed him I was told by a well known local goalkeeping coach with ex Darlo connections that he wasn't up to much, would have more bad games than good ones but would plug a gap for the short term. Then when we signed Connell he said exactly the same, as well as a north...

Bit of a surprise, but that's probably because of what he's achieved. A genuine club legend who was instrumental in our promotions. But when I think on it, it makes sense.

But until these sugar daddies stop funding clubs beyond their natural means then other clubs are always going to try and keep up.
