Re: Darlington player caught the eye of a Prem club.

Are you saying you sit there during a match, watch a poor player but think it's ok because "he's only a young lad and will be ok in a year or two?"[/quote] Will have to disagree on this - I don't think Smith was a poor player.

Re: Darlington player caught the eye of a Prem club.

Spoke to Cooper last season about Smith, and he said at the time that he believed he would be a premier league player in time. Seems Stoke have the same opinion. In his appearances last season, he cannot therefore have been the utterly shite, spineless waste of space certain people on here maintain ...

Re: Tommy Wright

Im not Wrights biggest fan by any means but to say Wrights performance at Wembley was very poor is way off the mark.

Re: Stockdale

try looking at a game with your own eyes instead of going with the media hype, Bramble was a major part of a team that boasted the most clean sheets at about the half way point in the season and the clean sheets only stopped when injuries broke the back four up. Bramble was also player of the year ...

Re: Free Agent's/Transfer Targets

How many players have done anything at Bradford in recent seasons? I think there's something fundamentally wrong with the club, and to write Evans off might be a mistake. He did very well in a piss poor Macclesfield side, and from what I remember seemed hard working enough for them. For free, still ...

Re: Free Agent's/Transfer Targets

Just seen that Gareth Evans is on a free from Bradford. Remember he looked a really good player when at Macclesfield, and I think he scored a couple against us, if memory serves me. Skilful forward, could make something out of nothing, and took a decent freekick. Perhaps worth a look.

Re: Tommy Wright

Lets get things in perspective. Yes, Tommy scored, but for the vast majority of this game, York bossed it. I don't think he caused their centre halves that much problem, and the goal he scored owed more to Hatch attacking his header than Wright, who couldn't miss. We've all got a soft spot for Tommy...

Re: Why are some talking about releasing Chris Senior ?

By what I have seen Campbell looks like he knows how to finish, Senior altho has scored goals for other 'worse' teams than...

To be fair, Wright is a better option than M. Smith. No he isn't, unless we are going longball again.

Wright wins more than his fair share of headers and can hold th...

Realistically, play-offs were always a longshot. What today proved is that, when our first eleven play well we are a good team. When they don't, or any of them are missing, we are an average side. Hatch/Smith doesn't work as a partnership. They are too alike. Campbell needs game time, as, coming on ...

Smith and Main were the best option last night, at least to start. However, they are not Cooper's first choice partnership.
