Looks like it. This was from last night:

Re: Thommo

The money Thommo has been allegedly offered is staggering. Despite being one of our top earners, a 50% pay rise, and a 5 figure signing on fee. We couldn’t possibly match this and he couldn’t possibly turn it down. Nothing personal Beano, but I'm always intrigued as to how third parties know the de...

Re: Potential new signings

Re: Omar Holness

I thought Omar was getting better each time he played and a midfield 3 alongside Wheatley and Hatfield would be as good as anything in our league so disappointing if he goes.Could be that AA prefers a different formation in a 442 and deems Omar surplus as we still have Reid and Atkinson.

Re: Omar Holness

Holness & Bascombe filled a hole when injuries had ravaged the squad and wish them both well in their future career, however they were at best only utility players. Donawa is a more gifted player & could turn a game so would want him in the squad for next season. Certainly when the 3 of them were a...

Nothing battling about that win. We were outstanding today. As has been said earlier, we should have scored several more and thought Thommo had finally scored 'that' goal with a diving header. On a quite dreadful pitch we played some lovely one touch stuff and in the final few minutes it was real 'o...

It is essential we keep Hatfield and Wheatley.

Re: Kidderminster 1-1 Darlington

Definitely a point gained rather than two lost. We weren't at the races for large parts of the game but battled hard. Campbell's work rate was again fantastic - and still he gets slagged off by some of our own. A goal of the season contender from Hatfield - and a miss of the season contender for Kid...
