Re: Kidderminster Harriers 13th Feb

No. the reason for continuing in the FA trophy is that it's run by The F A. Not the national league. Thank heaven. I'm not sure who runs the competition has any bearing. The FA aren't providing testing or funding either - not explicitly. The reason we are continuing in the Trophy is because the Tro...

Re: League restarts 6 February

There are quite a few teams in North and South who are full time, they still got a hell of a lot less than NL teams. Darlington FC have travelled to Bristol. Swindon and Weymouth this season (I know they were cup games) We also have several 4+ hour bus journey's. Some National league teams have shor...

Re: League restarts 6 February

I agree with all of the above btw. What I wasn't supporting was a perspective that NL Prem sides are quids in. We are quite fortunate really that we aren't on a lifeline yet. Can't imagine was others must be like. It was me that said that NL clubs are "quids in".. and it was in comparison to the fu...

Re: Home to Hornchurch

Interesting that Chesterfield have pulled out oy the Trophy last 16 game against Aldershot. This gives Aldershot a bye into the quarter final' It is interesting because of the bad publicity the Chesterfield players and staff got after getting vaccinated against Covid last week. They were contacted a...

Re: That penalty

No, sorry but you haven't convinced me.
Both players went for the ball with outstretched legs, I actually think the Wheatley tackle was the cleaner of the two.
Though in my opinion both were tackles and neither was a foul.

Re: That penalty

Storey blocked the ball out of play for a corner? Yes, that's what the commentators said until they saw the replay. Then they thought that he didn't make any contact with the ball However. That was not my point. (and once again you know this). My point was, did he consider "what if the player chang...

Re: That penalty

How on earth are you claiming you know that is an accepted caution from our players? Considering our manager said it was a perfectly fair challenge in his PMI would suggest it is not the view of the management, at the very least. I highly doubt any footballer would think that is a poor challenge. L...

Re: That penalty

No it's the law. Tackling without consideration for the safety of an opponent is a caution - by the laws of the game. Agree or not that is the definition of a reckless tackle. If a referee doesn't caution they are incorrect in law. They get marked accordingly in the system and their 'career' trajec...

Yes, I am sure that Wheatley saw the ball run into a situation like yesterdays and thought "what if the player changes direction and I end up tackling him rather than the ball, :roll: :roll: .But he didn't tackle the man. The fact remains he clearly won the ball Does any ball winning midfielder thin...

Re: That penalty

It was an horrendous decision and could have cost us, However they were a poor team and we recovered from it.
The ref also got quite a few decisions wrong, not least the booking of Wheatlley. That was a great tackle and one every ball winning midfield player would relish.

Re: League restarts 6 February

They are not "quids in". No clubs are "quids in" right now trust me. We have made about 10x more from our FA Cup run than the money National League clubs get from BT over a season. Us and Chorley are potentially the most "quids in" of any clubs across the divisions when it comes to excess revenue t...

They chose that as their budget. Other clubs like Altrincham, have a more manageable budget.

The national League will carry on. There is no question about that. They have already had nearly 3 times as much funding from the grants than the north and south clubs have had, in addition they have income from BT. Financially they are doing loads better than the North and South leagues who at this...

Re: Weymouth V Darlington FC FA Trophy

Interesting interview with the Weymouth manager on their website.
The person asking the questions said that Darlington did well with their BIG MEN and energy all over the park.
Do you think he was referring to our 4 massive midfielders of Rivers, Sousa, Wheatley and Hatfield.

I see it as £5 for watching the game and a £5 donation to the Darlo.
Also, I will at least know who has the ball and where it is on the field during the game.
