Re: B T B Email

Got to say. I noticed Gateshead's accounts for last year were released yesterday (they report from June 1st to May 31st each year). In their 3 year tenure with the club the old owners Richard and Julie Bennet had to fund: A £732k loss in the 15/16 season A £982k loss in the 16/17 season A £786k loss...

Re: Trotman

Well deserved for Luke, for me our best player of the season so far. Seconded, having a very good season and can see him attracting interest from FL clubs. One of only two NLN players in the squad. Hopefully this acknowledgement of his talents, will lead to interest from FL clubs, as we could do wi...

Re: B T B Email

I don't think re-branding the BTB would be a bad idea. I'll be continuing with my pledge. In truth if we want the cash to develop our football club both on and off the pitch it will require all areas of the club to pull their weight. Us as fans to back the club through these funding initiatives and ...

Re: Do The Wright Thing

For me, I just struggle to get on board with Wright. I find his tactics baffling half the time, I never see an improvement in the team from the previous game. I struggle to identify where he improves us when the team train during the week. He took Gray's playoffs team with a few out and a few in and...

What do you mean by bring back Vaulks? He's on dual registration and available for selection. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk I'd have him back in a flash, but he's more a centre half, rather than a left back. Totally agree, but at least he is a defender with a bit of height and beef so could h...

Re: Darlington V Brackley

And thus my main problem with Tommy once again rears its ugly head. We start getting success with 3-5-2. Galbraith is injured Ainge slots in well against Southport. Next game we abandon the formation that has seen us keep clean sheets in 3 of our last 5 games when we would have been perfectly able t...

Re: National League Stadia

The only way you can get a 'perfect view' is from a drone over the pitch! I'm not after a 'perfect' view, I'm after a decent view Part of the match experience is getting into a spot which gives you a satisfactory vantage point. Christ that's depressing.

Re: National League Stadia

In my opinion BM is an awful place to watch football - large run off areas coupled with no height, so that the only way to get a decent view is to go into hospitality. There are large open spaces and it's hard to get a decent atmosphere. It's little wonder we didn't have a return to Darlington boun...

Re: Darlington V Brackley

Think we should stick with the 3-5-2. It is starting to come together and we are looking a lot more solid defensively. And its a formation that gets the best out of Hughes and Nicholson. That in mind the question is who plays at the back. As I said on another thread the club said Vaulks was on a dua...

Its the reaction of their player that does my head in. He's screaming blue murder after the coming together. Quite why I don't know. He was at it all afternoon. Shame for Muggleton.

Re: New Finance Director

Good move by the club, even if this delays the shirts by a couple of weeks think we can get enough people to get it over the line. I'll be putting in once payday arrives. Sure others will too.
