Re: Extended ban

I was there, in the away end, and his swearing was way beyond what can be regarded as “acceptable”. That said, King’s Lynn were so disorganised there was no way they would have refused him entry.

Re: Gloucester V Darlington

If we can eventually get Atkinson and Liddle both fit plus a striker in on loan to give us a different option up front I think we will do ok. When O’Neil went off at half time we just weren’t the same team.

Re: Darlington V Southport

You can see how they won at Farsley midweek. If the ball is in the air all the time then the pitch condition isn’t a problem. The teams that will win at Farsley will be the ones that play hoof ball. Maybe it is time we had some kind of regulation regarding pitch quality rather than just the ref deci...

Personally I hope that, as well as giving us all the facts and figures, DJ also gives us his preferred option because that is what I will go with. The whole thing is so complex that I would rather trust his judgement than mine.

Re: Curzon Ashton v Darlo

I think, last season, it was after Blyth put Atkinson into that deep midfield position that they went on their long unbeaten run so hopefully he will have the same effect for us once he is fit.

Re: farsley away

Unfortunately the bus with the usual suspects is apparently setting off at 8.30 and heading into the centre of Leeds where they will no doubt stay until just before kick off then turn up totally inebriated. This combined with a warm day and no segregation is a recipe for disaster, as we have seen in...

Re: BM - Surface

As I heard it, the grounds man wanted to do this but it would take significant extra time above his normal hours but the rugby club refused to pay him the extra money and he wasn’t prepared to take the blame for things not being right.

Rumour I heard was that the grounds man quit because he wanted to follow the maintenance plan provided by the company that laid the pitch but the rugby club wouldn’t let him.

Re: BM - Surface

Assuming some of the money we pay DRFC is to cover the cost of pitch maintenance so if they are not keeping the pitch in an appropriate condition then would we be entitled to withhold a portion of our payment until the pitch is put right.

Re: What is clear....

If we push the boat out a little bit to get that all important goal scorer and get a young keeper on a season long loan then wait and fill out the squad with players released from academies and a couple more loanees we should be ok. Maybe even pick up one or two from the Northern League.

Re: Jordan Nicholson released

With Wright gone Nicholson was always likely to want to play back down south. A talented player but very lightweight for this league. Wonder if he ends up at Stratford.

Spenny have offered eye watering money to 3 Blyth players, and you can bet your bottom dollar that a) we want all 3, b) they won't all get a regular game there, and c) it's more about denying Darlo than improving their squad. I guess it depends on whether they want to play regular football in front...

Re: Who do we fancy then?

Sounds a bit like Armstrong may be going to use our vacancy as a bargaining tool to get what he wants from the Blyth board.
If so not the sort of person we want.

Re: Darlo -Diary .We need significant change.

With season ticket renewals apparently well down on last year (and BTB likely to be the same ) it is clear fans expect another season like the last if TW stays. Ultimately this will lead to a relegation level budget and less chance of staying up next time. While there is no guarantee a new manager w...

Re: Trotman extends contract

Seem to remember Heaton signing a new deal towards the end of last season. I think something similar will happen with Trotman and he will move on in the summer, hopefully for a sizeable fee.

Re: FANS NETCAFE -this Friday evening.

Perhaps the board have simply refused to discuss a contract extension until they know for certain which division we will be in. Just because a manager wants to know if his contract will be extended doesn’t mean it will happen - he needs to prove he deserves it first.

Re: Tommy Wright

Whilst I would really like TW to go now the problem is that we no longer have anyone left at the club who could take over until a new permanent manager is appointed. Catch 22, sack TW and end the season leaderless or keep him and, in reality, we still end the season leaderless.

At the AGM “soft soil” was mentioned as a factor but it could be overcome.

I know this won’t help at the moment but could we raised the DFCSG renewal to £25 this year. It’s only a small rise but if all 1000 members renew it would give an extra £5000.

For me, if we are to stay at BM then we must renegotiate our deal with the rugby club, make it more of a partnership between the 2 clubs as opposed to landlord and tenant.
