Re: Darlington V Hornchurch Trophy Quarter Final

Straight red very quickly and very easily shown to be completely wrong decision = pig's ear officiating.

Can't beat getting off on a technicality.

Stand by for legal action instigated by Dorking and friends.

Re: York City

In reality Boro's Riverside Stadium cost a lot more than £16.5m as on top of that figure millions of pounds worth of public money also went towards it. Teesside Development Corporation (financed by the taxpayer) gave the club the land to build the stadium on and then secured lots of Government cash ...

Re: DFC Voted for League to be Null & Void

Some clubs have called on the NL to void the season if there are no grants and have refused to play, some want it voided but haven't refused to play, some want to take loans and some want to play on regardless backed by benefactors' deep pockets. Clubs are just weighing up what they see as the best ...

Re: DFC Voted for League to be Null & Void

I can appreciate a reluctance to go down a route which may lead to expulsion and/or fines for our club especially when a resolution may be very close. It may not come to that of course but it may also be a gamble. It's not a situation of our making and we are trying to balance a lot of factors and f...

Re: Kidderminster Harriers 13th Feb

Looks like we are being pushed into playing under duress, with threats of fines and expulsion, until the result of the vote is known. What a terrible position to be forced into while trying to protect our club. It's an absolute scandal and shameful on the part of the NL board.

Re: Wealdstone match thread

We've struggled sometimes this season when teams have packed their defences and done their homework and concentrated on trying to snuff out players like Sousa, Rivers and Charman. Wealdstone didn't do that and paid the price. We were probably under the radar for them, especially with being in a lowl...

Re: DFC Voted for League to be Null & Void

A much more measured and sensible statement than the confrontational claptrap from Fylde. It also helps to nail the lie about clubs being motivated in their voting purely according to whether they are in the running for promotion or fighting relegation. As an aside, I didn't know Spenny had a "benef...

Re: Kettering Town

You need to read their statement. The main thrust of it is the very real financial threat to their future if the league carries on without income or with crippling loans. You're making too much of a one-off fitness match requested by Oxford. It didn't threaten Kettering's future.

Re: Kettering Town

The chips would really be down if several more clubs did the same. It's hard to disagree with what they've said over "broken promises" and refusing to put the club's future in jeopardy and would the NL really expel every club that adopted the same stance in the current climate?

I think in normal times you're supposed to give at least 8 days notice before a match if you're withdrawing and if they're not entirely happy with your reasons you can be kicked out of next season's competition and fined. Maybe they wouldn't be entirely happy if you didn't have any proven covid case...
