Re: Retention for next year

I'll be honest I would expect an u23 at Newcastle to be earning more than someone at Carlisle but I don't really know after that point it is all a bit of a guess. You don't but I think the perspective is that Armstrong probably does and see him as pivotal. It’s guesswork yes, but I’d also suggest A...

Re: Retention for next year

If I had to be brutal (which the world of football is), I would say: GK - if AA can line someone up then, I'd release both Connell and Elliott. If not, then retain Elliott RB - I'd expect Trotman to go, Hedley to stay LB - Liddle is excellent (Watson is likely to be a cheap backup for LB and CB) CB ...

Re: Boston Away

Looking at the highlights of the Spendy game, there's hardly anyone there. It's clear that when they give the attendance figure they are including every one of the cut-price and the many free season ticket holders as having attended, whether they do or not. I would have thought the actual attendanc...

Re: Osagi gone

from memory Osagi did get a run in the team, then had to be pulled out because of international duty and hasn't got back in since. Wheatley getting back to fitness being the main one. Decent player, but we have better, so no point in holding on.

Good luck to him

Didn't someone one year just go on Love Island and not tell the club. Regarding Trotman's future, I would expect...

Wouldn't mind him here. I do remember that on two occasions Guiseley got into some good positions and Wats...

Re: Spennymoor game off

The referee decided to call the game off. The issue I'd have with Spenny was the twitter post saying they weren't expecting any issues. This meant fans will have travelled. Also, did they not inspect the part of the pitch that had an issue. It did look poor and that area needs sorting. So they shoul...

I thought the handball that the ref didn't give was obvious first time around, but watching the highlights, it looks as if the ref got it right. It also doesn't stop the fact that we had people to defend the corners and it was a mistake that led to the goal. Even though we were clearly better in the...

someone mentioned that Connell, Reid and Martin aren't eligible for Wednesday. So I'd fully expect Martin to start. Reid depends on how fit he is (looked tired against Spenny).

Re: Storey interview

It's all good in hindsight now, but bringing on Holness for Reid around the hour mark might have helped. Reid looks a bit leggy after 3 full 90s in quick succession. Can understand if he wanted to keep things the same as at that point we weren't in massive danger

I think most fans have conceded that it's so much better than last year.
