Re: South Shields v Darlo

There was a pretty dramatic ending to one of the weekend games involving the relegation battle. Rushall drew 3-3 with Gloucester and two of their goals were apparently worldies scored by a sub call Sam McLintock. Just two days earlier McLintock, 23, who had his contract cancelled at Boston last yea...

Thompson says he has put in £8m of his own money since taking over in 2015 and there is no "external debt" for the new owner.
Not sure whether to believe that or nor

Re: Who next?

So salford and s shields have sacked managers, both clubs with a load of bandwagon jumpers and owners who think they should be winning all the time. Good to see them both getting a reality check

Re: Who next?

There's zero evidence to suggest that Martin Gray has the skillset required in our current situation. He succeeded when he had the biggest, or one of the biggest budgets in the division, while he was supported by a scout who had huge knowledge of the local non League game in Harry Dunn. He's not wo...

Would it really take 120k for a northern premier club to see out the end of the season? Could they not just offload big earners and see out the season with a trimmed down squad and re-group next season in division below? What also strikes me as odd is why were they not a limited company before now, ...
