Re: Small clubs in the north west

I have little time for either side to be honest. Clearly remember Bolton when Phil Garside was in charge during their time in the top flight, He put the suggestion forward to the premier league to close and prevent promotion into that league. If I remember correctly he did the same with the Champion...

Re: Darlington away vs Bishop Auckland

Thought Bell played very well while he was on, pacy and tricky. However, I would like to see him when playing against better opposition. No disrespect to Bishop Auckland intended.

Re: Dan Maguire

I think we should forget about Maguire if York and Spendy want to chuck money at players then we need to walk away, we still are an attractive club to many a player at this level so we should be able to bring in a decent couple of strikers. Don’t understand why we’d need to walk away. We offer him ...

Whilst I don't normally agree with you Polarbear as you are a very strange person at the best of times but on this one I do agree.

I think he might be a little optimistic if he thinks they can break even on an average of 860 fans per game. If they do go up my guess is their average crowd will actually drop...

Styche had a real mare of a game and missed a few very good chances. Styche wears his heart on his sleeve and I was stood near t...

Re: Darlington v Bradford (Park Avenue)

Agree with most of that but I would keep Burn as centre back alongside of Hughes. I know he wasn't at his best last Saturday, but still made a couple of very good blocks when Southport had shots at goal. Also, he is developing an understanding with Hughes while Galbraith has never yet played with Hu...

Budget wasn’t sustainable as we weren’t bringing in the fans to sustain it. Attendances had dropped 16% last season. Personally feel as though the over-inflated budget wasn’t all Gray’s doing.
