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. Absolutely not. The league season is over as far as play-offs are concerned After eleven games last season, Blyth were on the same number of points as us and only above us by virtu...

Bit strange that a new squad photo was being taken in front of the tinshed at around 2pm yesterday. Apparently it is connected with a new sponsor. Does anybody know anything about this?
It was for the last few Boost The Budget people (myself included) who hadn't made it to previous photoshoots.

Dear me here's another comedian. Every club should have realistic ambition, it's what drives football. Just as well you lot weren't running man city when the oil money turned up.
And what do you suppose is going to happen to City when the oil money goes away?

I know it's early in the season but just for a bit of continuous comparison, am I right in thinking that we have more points at this stage than at this point last year after 5 matches?
After 5 games last season: P5 W1 D2 L2 F10 A12 Pts 5
After 5 games this season: P5 W2 D1 L2 F8 A7 Pts 7

Fitzpatrick might do OK - or there's Craig Hutchinson from Billingham who've just won the second division - 42 goals last season (and 51 a couple of seasons ago). Not sure how old either of...

Nope.

Not only that, but we're still recovering the costs of his blank-cheque time ...
