Re: Club Accounts

Insinuations here are ridiculous. If people wanted a post on the clubs website prior to this being released then fair enough (just). If people are questioning why he's resigned prior to this being released or if he now all of a sudden doesn't deserve the volunteer award then I'm afraid it's a proper...

Re: Andrew Nelson returns to Sunderland

I think it's worth a playoff spot if we were to get Nelson but I understand how slim those chances are. Thommo spent a while this season out of sorts and not only whilst being played out of position. But I guess in a losing team that will happen. For me it was right to let him sit and watch for a fe...

Re: Where we are after 25 league games

I didn't say he'd be less of a risk. I said I think he'd do better, which is different. No you said: As for replacement, there's loads we could go for. Hardy, McGurk, R.Moore, C.Moore, Flanagan. There are more. All would be better than TW ...... Zero facts getting in the way of that one. On a perso...

Re: York V Darlington

Penney has been put in temporary charge of the team but some fans are already calling for his head! Of course they are and quite frankly I'm AMAZED he's still there. Director of football and backed Gray to come in when he did. Clearly part of the problem along with a lot of the players, not all tho...

Re: Ownership and Finance

I don't really see the problem in being a National League North club until we develop beyond being a National League North club. "We have to progress" - why? We will hit a ceiling at some point. It was League Two before but people were obsessed with going further eventually you either settle for wh...

Re: Resignation...

At the moment I believe the club is pretty rudderless with no real plan or strategy of where we want to go and how we get there, apart from the oft trotted out “aspiration of getting back into the league”. The sporting village seems to be the thing that has been hung onto for the last 12 months or ...

Golf clubs always do well out of selling land for housing too!

No such luck for us, maybe it was just never available or maybe there's been too many with a financial interest as opposed to a custodian who would gift anything over.

Re: Dom collins

Does he have to show up to matches still if injured? Community days? Hospital visits (not for himself). Ultimately he can earn his corn. He won't play for us again so an agreement is needed either way. Looked a great signing on paper but made of glass, something Gray should shoulder the blame for.

Re: New Defenders

I'm confident we are OK at the back once we get Collins and Brown there, with Galbraith at LB. The issue currently is we try to defend for 95+ minutes every game with zero outlet. Sign a guy up top who can take the ball into feet and we've got a solid back 4. More so with avoiding relegation our onl...

Happy with that. Wright is young but has 3 years experience and knows the club, managed at this level and with Whitey as his assistant that's some discipline.
