Re: Josh Heaton

I fear the answer may be to risk a scratch team in the fa Cup and try to get some players fit over the next two weeks.

Re: Darlo v York

We didn't decide to let him go, we just didn't have him on a contract.

This run of injuries has been absolutely ludicrous.

Re: Gloucester V Darlington

He was a key part of our highest placed team since demotion so he can't have been that bad. His spirit would be welcome if nothing else.

However, did I read he had a heart scare at shields? Is he still playing?

Re: Gloucester V Darlington

I think we are better. We're fitter, we have players for each designated position, our players understand their roles, we have more strength in depth. I think from looking at it today we need to move the ball quicker, some of the players still need to improve their understanding, others need to adap...

Re: Gloucester V Darlington

That's a fair summary. We looked very short in key areas, particularly at full back. Losing o'neill, presumably to injury, pretty much did for us as Campbell was very isolated after that. Morrison came on but he understandably didn't look ready for first team football, despite looking a big strong l...

Re: Small clubs in the north west

Right, I'll "engage". What kind of "investor" do you want? One who will actually want to make money from their investment, which is what an investor is, or a sugar daddy who lumps money at the club with no hope of any financial return? Because A) would be a crap businessman, and B) would be a figmen...

Re: Small clubs in the north west

Things like this really do make me think we should never compromise what we have built so far for the sake of an "investor", or sugar daddy, promising the earth. Even if the conference becomes our natural long term home, which I think is feasible, I'd take 50 years like that over one year in league ...

Still, we had a stronger bench today than at any point last season. Can you imagine what a couple of serious injuries would have meant eight months or so ago?

Re: Darlington V Southport

In terms of organisation, solidity and cutting out mistakes, probably our best peformance when you look at how powerfully Southport had started the season. Even had to cope with a major defensive reorganisation after what may well be another serious injury, this time with Liddle on crutches. Excell...

Re: Four signings confirmed

Fantastic depth in almost all positions in that squad. How much were we overpaying players last season to have ended up with 5 youth teamers on the bench when we have that kind of cover now?

Re: Josh Heaton

I've just got a feeling about this one. He's not been I his proper position during the last few seasons, and yes the league is a step up in intensity and he's not a big bloke, but he seems to have a brain to be in the right place in the box. I agree about goals coming from all over, but I think Camp...
