Re: Gloucester V Darlington

Well, according to these posts we don't really have any problems so I fail to see why we are 17th in the table. :crazy: Possibly it's more that some people realise that this is a re-building year, there's gaps in the squad which Armstrong himself has said, we've had injury issues to some key player...

Re: Gloucester V Darlington

Well, as much as I think he is a good player, Campbell has not proven he could do a job as a centre forward anywhere. The idea that he can seems to be an act of faith on AA's behalf. And a 1 in 2 record for us this season so far seems to be backing up Armstrong's faith in him as a goalscorer He doe...

Re: Gloucester V Darlington

I’d peddle Heaton, Holness, Hedley and get a proper right back and centre forward. If we could get shot of Laing to I would and bring in a new centre back. Watson can cover centre back and full backs and Bascome and Wheatley can cover Atkinson and Hatfield. Not difficult. Fortunately we have a mana...

I think defeat at Kings Lynn won't look so bad come the end of the season, although defeat at home to BPA will probably look even worse.

Re: Small clubs in the north west

Given our attendances, we could certainly be competitive in the NL. The problem is we also have to fund the building of a ground. This has already taken a large amount from the playing budget through the 500 club. Give us a ready built ground and we'd be in a much stronger position.

Where did I say BM ticked all the boxes?

Take Dan Maguire out of the Blyth team last season and I bet their performances/results would have been similar to what we are seeing so far this season. Not easy to find a striker like that though.

There was a bit of dodgy distribution from him tonight at times, sometimes he just needs to clear his lines and put his foot through it - but he never hid, always made himself available, and his head didn't drop when he screwed a few of those passes up. He'll never put his foot through it, that's n...

It just looked in dire need of some watering. Surely they have sprinklers anyway, get someone in to turn the things on every day at the state it is now, and it might recover a bit for the seasons start.

Re: Teams in National League North for next season

Isn't there a rule that you don't have to move divisions within 3 years of your last move? Worcester were given such an exemption preventing them being moved back to the North a few years ago. Gloucester went from North to South in 2017-18, so they might be within their rights to refuse to move.

The reality is that Wright isn't a "talented young manager" and its very likely he doesn't have "a bright future" in the game. But they were nice words anyway.

If Wright stays on then he is here for the whole of next season. If he continues to struggle to get results we won't be able to get rid after 10 games, we simply can't afford it. If we are out of all cups by November again we are stuck with Wright. The club can only really afford to make changes whe...

A manager is not judged on isolated matches. The fact that a side can win and play well occasionally does not mean that Tommy "has proven he can do it but just needs to find consistency". It shows that Tommy can't put together a side that is consistent, that can gets results and move up the table. H...
