Re: Released players

You get the strong impression that South Shields are about to push the boat out with a couple of big striker signings following the departures of Cogdon, Finnigan and now Harmison. They may not be that attractive a proposition being in the league below us even though they may have the cash.FC Unite...

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? Played almost all his games at CB, must be very decent to have played quite a few games for Motherwell as well as FL.Atkinson has been rumoured also and pretty sure he ...

Re: Alun Armstrong

Wonder who AA's assistant will be, and if not Alan White then will he be kept on to oversee the academy.Really hope he still has a role at the club.

Sensational effort this, great interview from AA, said all the right things and feel sure he will spend the money wisely.

Re: New Manager Interviews this week

Spenny have offered eye watering money to 3 Blyth players, and you can bet your bottom dollar that a) we want all 3, b) they won't all get a regular game there, and c) it's more about denying Darlo than improving their squad. Really wish Spenny would do one, if McGuire is one of them, they play wit...

Re: New Manager Interviews this week

Interesting to read that Bower has twice signed Adam Boyes, although I dare say he doesn't come cheap now that he's felt the Spenny vibes. I do think Boyes will want out of there having spent lots of the season gathering splinters in his arse on the bench with Taylor being impossible to dislodge as...

If it is AA then what happens to our academy as he has his own which will not benefit our club financially, a bit similar to the setup under MG.No way will DJ make an appointment which will have a detrimental effect on our own academy so not sure how this would work under AA.

I think he might be a little optimistic if he thinks they can break even on an average of 860 fans per game. If they do go up my guess is their average crowd will actually drop...
