Re: Coronavirus and DFC

No matter what decision is made at any level barrow must replace bury in the football league no arguments there. Also like I said a few weeks ago if the season is null and voided surely poor thommo reverts back to 94 goals and we didn't have a cup run after all. Interesting one, the Yeovil Chairman...

Re: Coronavirus and DFC

Interestingly step 5 and 6 of non league (which I think I'm right in saying is counties level football) have declared that the season is over and no more games will be played.

Re: AGM

Although I was accused by a couple of posters on here when I suggested the playing budget for next year will be greatly reduced I’m still of the belief it will be as the DFCSG board want to get to a break even point which the club haven’t done since 2012. If it hadn’t been for the cup run money the...

Re: Our run in......

My predictor currently says you'll need 67 points for a playoff place. But tbh for us that means 68 as our goal difference is so poor. The current prediction is that Gateshead will climb to 6th with 68 points, Chester will finish 7th with 67 points. We'll come 10th with Spenny, and Guiseley ahead of...

It looks very much like Gibson will no longer be chucking huge amounts of cash at the dream of turning Boro into an established Premier League club.

Re: Retention for next year

Being greedy I'd like us to keep everyone, because no one who has been fit for any length of time has let us down. I think Trotman will likely move on as there is bound to be a more local club interested. I think, sadly, that we will release Holness who I think is a fine player. But as with Bascomb...

I think away from home we should make ourselves a bit more solid with a 4-3-3 something like the below. Reid playing with his back to goal to hold the ball up top and to bring in the rest of the team. Campbell uses the ball well. Donawa still offers pace in behind. But most importantly 3 strong cm's...
