Re: Signings

How about some of the Gateshead players? White, Tinkler, Olley or Rigg would surely be good shouts.

Boyes I would highly doubt from Spennymoor, but he’s local. Maguire would be outstanding but I reckon he’s off to Shields.

Re: Signings

Gramps, I didn’t say Laing was a success at Hartlepool. Find me a quote where I have said that? Eh? Where did I say you did? My point was general, and about not judging things solely on Nick Loughlin’s Twitter. You said Laing wasn’t first choice at Blyth, therefore you’re guessing he won’t be first...

Re: Signings

Is laing a centre back? And if so does this mean either ainge is going up front, ainge is out, or galbraith is going to left back? From his interview last week, I took it that Armstrong was going to at least try Ainge up front at some point in pre-season. Laing and Atkinson both play centre back I ...

Re: Signings

Surely they don't need another goalkeeper? They must have some players who will be sick of sitting in the stands as well? Well a quick look at their website suggests they have around 20 players, including two goalkeepers, four centre-halves and three strikers - with strong rumours they are in for f...

Re: Signings

Spennymoor ‘share an interest’ in the players we’re looking at. I’m starting to genuinely think they do it out of spite, not as if they need a 7th centre back or a 4th striker More than likely Jameson, Buddle and Maguire if the rumours are anything to go by. They are really going for it - all the b...

Re: Signings

I do think with ainge that we didn't play to his strengths at all. We never got the ball crossed from the by line for him to meet, because we were trying to play a system unsuited to the wide players we had. I'd say it's not impossible for him to succeed, even if it seems pretty unlikely. Also, Lin...

Outworked today. As for the tactics, hit the ball into space relentlessly seemed to be the order.

Re: Darlington v Stockport

I’m desperate for this to work for TW, but today was poor again. The formation suited us more, we defended well for large-parts, but there isn’t much else to shout-about. We just don’t look like a team, there doesn’t seem to be any understanding in the forward play. Ironically we’ve gone from a team...

Re: Darlington v Bradford (Park Avenue)

Must say the highlights don't make for good viewing. Zero movement or coherence between team mates - it looks like training ground issues to me, particularly relevant given the questions over our fitness relative to our opponents and our injury record. We look like a team of individuals to me. Yep....

How many times has Ainge actually played up front this season though? Four, maybe five? He missed 2 matches through injury, he played 2 or 3 in defence - he hasn't had a huge amount of time in the position that we signed him to play. IIRC, Styche and Ainge started together in the following games; D...

Re: Darlington v Bradford (Park Avenue)

Yesterday was disappointing, I haven’t seen us win at home since March. The first-half yesterday was so similar to the performances against Curzon Ashton and Altrincham. I didn’t really agree with the line-up, it basically read like a 4-1-3-2 with Elliot being responsible for the midfield. It wasn’t...

Re: TW tactics......again!

I think Gramps’ assessment is a fair one, as Henshall is yet to demonstrate he is better than Gillies albeit with limited appearances, but he may still well be given time.

Personally I think we could do with an Alan White style centre-half next to Galbraith.

No I haven't. However, you would think that there would be a pecking order to his selection of youth players rather than just plucking anyone to place on the bench.
