Re: National League System - Re-Structure from 18/19

Opened the non league paper and there was a very odd article about morpeth. The manager said they are not ready for promotion but knows they have to take it. Im guessing if it was not compulsery they would have declined Sent from my LG-H850 using Tapatalk Can't be ready after winning the Vase and t...

Re: National League System - Re-Structure from 18/19

Well unless you can magic up some extra cash the only way of increasing fairness is changing the distribution of the current funding which has to result in some being better off and others being worse off than they currently are. There is no financial net gain but the increase in fairness and abili...

Re: National League System - Re-Structure from 18/19

I never said anything about the NL. All clubs travel costs being subsidised would make it a more even playing field. The costs of Carlise, for example, fulfilling their contract with the FA is higher than an equivalent club in the Midlands so why should they get the same remuneration? Sent from my ...

Re: National League System - Re-Structure from 18/19

Spot on shildonlad. If you go through the list of champions, the number of times the Northern League failed to promote anyone was unreal. Since Durham in 07/08, only us, Spennymoor and South Shields have been promoted. That's at least six seasons where a team hasn't been promoted. No wonder there's...

Re: National League System - Re-Structure from 18/19

So, they’re adding a third southern division? How’s that going to help the north south feeds into the national leagues??? No, they're adding a midlands (central) league at step 3.

I've been looking at the table, after tonight we've now let in less goals than York! I too have checked the league table, I see we are 10 points behind York. Does anyone know how many points we were behind York when MG left us? (Sorry for the obsession) Darlo - 17pts from 13 games York - 15pts from...

Re: Has everyone gone insane?

Yup, MG knew that he had sufficient respect / hero worship within the fan base (and power within the club) to get away with what was quite extraordinarily unprofessional conduct at the forum. It was only the gravitas of the bigger picture that meant we didn't focus on it. I imagine his relationship...

Re: We don't want to rest on our laurels.

Of course we should aim for promotion from next season to get into Conference North but as others have said, if we finished 10th and moved back to Darlington I'd be happy with that. For me, the NPL is like playing a top 8 team from from Division 1 North every week. You don't get those weeks against ...
