Re: Southport Highlights

Got to admit personal highlight (although not from our highlights) was Liam Watson complaining that the pitch was too big. Clear his side were there to play narrow and get the ball into the box at every opportunity. Once we showed we could press high and not gove their big lads time on the ball ther...

Re: Blyth

The club seems to be lurching towards a crisis after only 4 games. There are rumours today that he's released 4 players. If Robbie is one of them we'll have a meltdown. Despite a 10 game preseason Clark seems clueless as to who is his best eleven. Feel sorry for Spartans fans. Great non league club...

Re: Highlights this season

Awful treatment of volunteers by the league. Especially considering the likes of Kev have ensured that exiles, like my self, still feel such a close link to the club despite only attending 5-10 games a season max. And keeping that connection has kept the money flowing in from me to the club. So thes...

Re: Farsley V Darlington Match Thread

God you have to watch those first half highlights through your hands. The defending first half was absolutely schoolboy. Think another poster is right above in the turnover of possession which leads to the first goal Rivers was blocked off, should have been our free kick. But that doesnt excuse Lian...

Re: Darlington away vs Bishop Auckland

From the highlights it looked like another good run out for the lads, really pleased with how we're shaping up going into the season, there seems to be a clear game plan and method of play which everyone has bought into and we go about our work well, with and without the ball.

Re: New signings and outgoings

Watson strikes me as an odd signing, as I think he'll be second choice no matter what position he plays. He never looked like a centre back to me. I think (hope) Armstrong goes with the 4-3-3 he has played before, as the wide options we have up front seem well suited to it. So Watson will probably ...

Interesting reading the notes from the Q&A at Blyth end of season awards. Tony Platten doesn't give too much away, but sounds like they're trying to build a case around the fact Armstrong failed to exercise the option in player contracts, then went on to sign them himself. Can't see much legs in it ...

Seems slightly odd considering we took the option on his contract only a couple of weeks ago.

Re: Boost The Budget 19/20

If we get some positive signings announced early next week might push it on towards £90k. Whatever happens the fans have shown once again that they are behind this club and willing to provide the support we need to keep on developing as a club.
