Re: Rip kevin stonehouse

Such sad news. I thoroughly enjoyed talking to him about football (and lots of other stuff later in the evenings...). He really enjoyed his time at Darlo and when he came back to do the FITC he was always willing to take on other tasks when needed and was a regular at Supporters' Club/Trust events.

Re: Vaulks on loan to Whitby

Well we won't have any trouble recalling Vaulks after a month, if he's only keeping the bench warm. All this talk of recalling him after a month confuses me (unless I've missed something obvious). Iirc, he is only on a one month loan so we don't have to recall him - he simply comes back unless the ...

Re: Former Players sly digs at TW on twitter

I am not that optimistic about the season ahead and I predict a mid table finish, however Tommy is the man and lets get behind him - I am not Tommy bashing here its just that I think we have hit a level in terms of funding where we cannot expect to win the league - the playoffs would be a great ach...

I'd take him back (on an acceptable wage). He's a very experienced players who we know is more than capable of playing at this level. That experience is something we're lacking in the squad presently. He's also no soft touch. We need a bit more grit at the back. Plus we know he can score goals with...
