Re: Away kit vote

Purple for me in this vote. Not a fan of the blue option and I am hoping that the others aren't red or yellow like previous...don't get me started greens either....!!! ;-)

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: Nuneaton....

Shouldn't be going over the top about a 2-1 over the bottom of the table side and we should have been nowhere near scrambling around just above the bottom 3 at this point in the season.

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!

Re: Tommy Wright

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. And given only eight days ago we performed really well and should have beaten the league leaders, I can't say we're at that point. Of course none of us know what's actua...

Re: Early Bird Season Tickets

I think it's a bit of both.

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 ...

Re: Alfreton away

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. TW has to work to bring in some players of similar quality if we want to see out the season on or more positive footing rather than be dragged into a scrap ...

I'm of the opinion that we are fine with the fan-owned funded route and we should refrain from the temptation to think further success can only be achieved by a 'rich' benefactor. Those clubs can enjoy their success at the moment but it's all short-term in relative terms, ours is the longer-term vie...
