Re: Tamworth V Darlington Match Thread

Easiest possible tie at home.

Like Ghost said, let’s try and aim for the third round and a proper massive away tie.

Re: Leamington v Darlington

Great result.

Lowest ranked team at home please. One win away from pulling a big League 1 or a League 2 club out of the hat away from home.

Stick the ‘I wouldn’t mind going there for a day out shite’ for the next round, most winnable game at home please.

Easiest possible draw at home please. Chance to bank another chunk of money for the club and a change to get closer to that illusive first round and a big pay day away at a bigger club.

Re: Small clubs in the north west

Add to that Blackburn Rovers that are £100m in debt to their owners, it feels like football league finances are on a cliff edge at the moment. We just have to be patient, realistic and look to grow slowly and sensibly, it might not suit a lot of people but if we want to do things properly then it’s ...

Re: Darlington V Southport

Superb performance today, every player put a shift in and some of the football at times was a joy to watch.

Re: New Striker

There’s three big problems regarding getting a quality big centre forward that is both good on the deck and in the air: 1. There aren’t that many top notch ones about. 2. Bearing this in mind, they cost top dollar, and in a queue for players financially we are stood behind Spennymoor, South Shields,...

Turned out that Beck was actually an outsta...

Re: Expectations 19/20

Re: Season ticket sales

As for us I reckon 800 - 900, we never get to find out the official figure so it's all just guess work when it comes to actual numbers.

Re: Motherwell game

Blyth played with Maguire up top on his own with players around him linking in. It worked very well for them in the three seasons Armstrong managed up there.

Insane numbers that we can’t compete with running a prudent and sensible financial model.

I reckon Maguire would have loved to come and play under Armstrong again and with players he’s played with previously, but I personally wouldn’t turn down that offer, got to look after yourself financially.

Best thing to do if you feel you’re being ripped off and seen as a cash cow is not too go.

We always take good followings, whic...

Yeah I imagine so.

Which is each individuals perogative.

Ironic as well how the success of boost the budget could likely determine the standard of manager we are able to appoint as well. Let’s hope too many people don’t hold off until an appointment is made.
