Re: What goes round comes round

I seem to remember several years ago when Spennymoor where signing several Darlington players, posters on here were calling them Darlo Reserves. Will you now be called Blyth reserves. :?: Personally, I disagreed with addressing you as such. To me and indeed some others you were and still are Evenwo...

Re: Boost The Budget 19/20

A very, very cute tactic by the club to set this off BEFORE the new manager is installed.

I very much look forward to the reaction of many people when Big Mart inevitably makes his triumphant return. ;)

Re: Feethams or the Arena

Feethams was simply patched up and with health and safety requirements becoming stricter at some point eventually it would have needed replacing. I tend to disagree, had we stayed there then the West Stand would have likely have been closed down/demolished by now but the Polam Lane End and Tin Shed...

Has to be the Arena, as Feethams was a dump when we left it, although the Arena is probably a dump by now.
It looking a bit sad these days, I saw a comment on Sunderland’s forum saying it looks abandoned from the outside!

Re: Darlington v Hereford

There is a lot of anger among the Hereford fans directed towards the board and the new management team.

Re: West Auckland - Karma?

Ridiculous title.

Regardless of what happened back in 2012 I wouldn't want them to fold.

They may have won the match that day but lost out as I recall the attendance on the day was the second smallest we'd had after Penrith when we were in the Northern League.

Re: Caton playing Uni football

The flip side is maybe he has permission from ourselves/Stalybridge to do this?

I would be careful not to jump to conclusions here with out knowing the terms of the loan agreement between the two clubs and an apparent lack of knowledge regarding FA rules on this matter? (Which rule is he breaching?)

Re: Henshall replaces Gillies

Never heard of him.

My one concern though is he's already a bit of a journey man for 24 year old, if I've read it correctly we are his 8th different club.

Regardless it is only really possible to judge him on what he does for us on the pitch, welcome to the club Alex!

Sorry I probably worded that wrongly, what I meant was if Spenny finish in the play offs they'll play Kiddy away and as things stand I can't see anything other than Kiddy beating them.

I went along tonight and I have to say Spenny looked absolutely knackered, they were lethargic and sloppy and never really started playing until Ferriby equalised.

Allegedly.

Apparently McGill's deadline for bids is on Monday, the ownership situation there could have a baring on whether or not they move to Monk's Cross.
