Re: Boston V Darlington

I think the majority accept that TW has not got the results the club or ourselves expected over the duration of the season and that his days should be numbered. However, there are a few who are prepared to give him backing considering the financial constraints the club operate in and this is despite...

Re: Spenny Bottle

Obviously don't want it, extra costs involved in being promoted possibly? :think: Wouldn't be the first club I know of to do this and use to happen a lot further down until the introduction of enforced promotion.

Re: Darlington V FC United

I'm not sure myself. Even if it was 'just' 270k then it's still a decent chunk. MG reckoned you needed a budget of 400k to compete with some of the bankrollers. Here's the direct quote from the Netcafé "Our initial annual playing budget was set at £330k for the season and that was based against pro...

Re: Darlington V FC United

You don't have to be the most nuanced person in the world to see which way the wind is blowing with regard to TW's future, you only have to look at his demeanour in his interviews. What is clear is that he believes that people have over-reacted in the slump towards the relegation places. He says in...

Re: Away kit vote

Both reds are as boring looking as each other but went for the striped one out of the two. Would have been better to replace red with orange as we have had red a lot in recent seasons. Therefore I hope that the purple wins the overall vote, something strikingly different and not mundane.

From the commentary, another poor referee who nearly cost us the win. Any chance of appealing against the Holness red card? Thank heavens for Thommo and our away supporters.
Can't appeal a sending off for two yellows.

Re: Spenny Bottle

I don't mind the banter and rivalry between the two clubs. At the moment they are in a better position than us and let them enjoy it while it lasts, we have far greater concerns in just staying in touch in this division!

To be fair, unless things got so hideously toxic that it was unbearable, I don't see Wright leaving before the end of the season.

Re: Early Bird Season Tickets

I think it's a bit of both.

Re: Do The Wright Thing

I can't see us changing Wright at this stage if we stay up (which should be likely), I just don't see him learning from what most seem to be able to see. Not if Ashton Utd pull off potential results like currently, if they beat Chorley we'll only be 6pts ahead. No doubt we'll get humped by Chorley ...

That time of the year... choose the home kit.

Get your votes in for next season's home shirt. Not the greatest selection in my opinion but option 3 is probably the best on offer.

Another of the players to have left the club has said on Facebook that the message the players got was that the club doesn't want to get promoted, presumably because they just can't afford it.

Seems like a match where the loanees we've had recently would have thrived. However, just lacking that extra quality has probably cost us 2pts.
