Re: New Manager Interviews this week

Otherwise he would have said 'all the names'. Having read the article then yeah it could be a bit clearer, maybe needs a word adding and one removing to make it 100% accurate and no confusion. I have updated it for the Echo :) The Northern Echo understands that the names in contention at this stage...

Re: New Manager Interviews this week

Academy will continue as is, we won't revert to an MG style academy.

In reality it needs decoupling from the 1st team manager role if we can at some point soon.

Re: Teams in National League North for next season

Should be announced tomorrow apparently.

We should be getting Farsley Celtic, Kings Lynn, Kettering Town, Gloucester City & Oxford City if the rumours/expectations are correct.

Braintree were mooted but seems the rumours reckon Oxford City will hit the North as opposed to Braintree.

Re: 3 players released

Kneeshaw doesn't have a contract and one rumour is that he is out until October/November.

Any decision there would be with new manager but if the injury front is true we can't really spend money on someone who may miss a 1/3 of the season and any FA Cup time.

Re: Darlington's 'demise'....

My own question would be in their biggest moment ever, why did Brad have any focus on Darlo at all. Seems very strange, his club is further down the route of setup than Darlo and as shown much more likely to be promoted and manage to compete at the level above. So with all that why bring Darlo into ...

Re: 3 players released

Agree it's not a bad start. Thompson & Nicholson if playing guarantee 20 goals (10 each). Defence has Galgraith, Ainge and Trotman so not that much work to do their initially. Goalkeepers seem like we could get one on loan, I would look at Hemming from Boro or someone of that equivalent, saves us mo...

Re: Today’s Playoffs

Seems some want to keep this darlo/spenny rivalry stoked up. Bit below the belt as alot of fans spend alot of time fundraising. Whos running them bliddy accounts! A child of some kind, either an actual one or an adult one. It really doesn’t make any difference, all teams have odd ball supporters.
