Re: Spenny Bottle

I'd rather they went up to be honest. The less bankrolled village teams in the league the better in the short term future. They'll all go too far and nature will take its course eventually.

Re: Darlington V Spennymoor

I think you can accept the Galbraith one as a foul, think he's gone through the man to get to the ball, but if that one on Chandler for the first free kick is a foul then football just isn't the same game anymore. He was on his way down before there was any hint of contact and when the contact did c...

THIS! So annoying that a Darlington connection is seen a pre requisite to getting the job! I'd say actively avoid it next time.

Re: Spennymoor tonight.

The Madison booking highlighted exactly why that ref was poor. The Spenny keeper did *exactly* the same thing in the first half. Set himself to take a goal kick then decided to take it from the other side. He actually took longer over changing sides than Madison did. They're either both bookings or ...

Re: Tom Elliott

Hopefully he can cover RB too. Pretty happy with that squad now. We only have 6 defenders, one being a 19 year old youth, one being permanently injured, and one often injured. I'd say we need 2 defenders. I know Elliot can cover right back, I know Ainge can drop into defence, but that's not ideal. ...

Re: Transfer targets for next season.

First of all we need to move a few players on. Burgess, Marrs and Scott seem givens to be released, and as much as I like them I wouldn't be shocked to see Brown and Portas go too given their limited availability this season. That would give us Heaton and Galbraith with Collins and Vaulks as back up...

Re: York City

Every poor performance we've had this season has coincided with an opposition that presses the ball all over the pitch. We can't play against that style, and it needs addressing. Some players have lost a yard, some players can't operate without space and luxury of several touches. It was a reminder ...

Re: Fenwick gone

In terms of our attacking play, Beck has become a victim of his own success. Mark Beck is a fantastic target man, at times totally unplayable, but we've become one-dimensional and expect him to perform miracles in terms of his output. One player cannot act as our only outlet for 90 mins, nor is he ...

A good game against a decent opposition. Our midfield seemed to be the problem today. The usual calm Turnbull's passing was woeful, maybe the breeze was the issue? Syers was non-existent and Gillies and Thompson seemed to be taking up the same positions too often. Brown and Collins were decent I th...

A draw was a fair result. Spenny had the better of the first half, we had the better of the second half. We don't seem to be creating chances and lack a bit of flair from the lads that usually bring it at the moment. Referee killed any chance of an entertaining game today, absolutely dreadful, gave ...

For all York pulverized us for the majority of the first half, we had our moments and could have easily had a couple of goals ourselves. Much improved second half.

I was chuffed when we signed Collins, exactly what we needed to add to what was largely a very good team last season. A really good, solid centre half used to playing in the best teams in this league. Sounded on the commentary like Brown's game improved as a result of being paired with Collins and I...
