Its too early in the season to call for a managers head especially if they were not there last season but it seems to be rife at the moment. Toon fans want bruce out after 2 games, woodgates under pressure at boro, was even pressure on jack ross at sunderland before Saturdays game apparently. Footba...

Re: The Areana

All a club wants at national league or north/south level is a ground like afc telfords. Went there last Saturday, nice terrace behind goal and you could have a pint during the game providing it was drank on the terrace behind the dugouts. That bar been open throughout the game must bring a bit coin...

Re: The Areana

Maybe the fond memories of playing at Bishop Auckland are because we won a lot of games there whereas The Arena has some very painful ones. Some people called Reynolds idealistic at the time but I can't see the place as anything but a monument to his narcissism and ignorance about small football cl...

Re: Finally an achievement in the FA Cup & Trophy

Folk say the fa need to do more to stop so many non league clubs going under but this extra prize money is a step in a right direction.
