Re: Away to Trafford in the FA Cup

To be honest I still wouldn't put Burn in. Laing to face a fitness test before the game. If he fails it I'd expect. A back four of Hedley, Galbriath, Watson, Liddle. Guess the positive is Laing is fit enough for a fitness test, means most likely, even if he doesnt pass for the game tomorrow, he sho...

Re: Josh Heaton

We cant afford not to have the money from a cup run, a good run would give AA budget to play with. Not necessarily. It would depend on if the club was performing financially better or worse than projected at that time. For example is the commercial hitting target, are the gates hitting forecast? On...

there's a lot of negativity which I can understand. Still fully expect us to win. I think with O'Neill back, we will be too good up front for them

Re: Darlo v York

football really is fine margins. There were a few things that didn't go for us: 1. The ball hitting the post and bouncing out. Centremetres one way and we'd have been 1 up 2. CB getting injured. This meant that we had 2 left footed CBs, with one of them only being 5'10 or 5'11 i would guess (up agai...

Had we not had the injuries, believe we would have had a much better start. All I am saying is that every recent season has se...

my understanding is that Headley is on non-contract terms. If he isn't good enough then we can get rid. If we want to keep him, then we can offer him more. Sensible approach to me

Until we scored I thought we looked garbage. We looked slow, lethargic and didn't look up for a fight which spurred them on a bit. Think our equaliser was massively important. Didn't fancy playing a full half 1-0 behind as the crowd would have got more and more frustrated. After the goal, we were do...

the yellow card he gave Donawa was a poor decision. We had a good view of this. It was clearly a foul/yellow card. The Donawa was a foul and the yellow is debatable.

With Thommo no available for Southport game, perhaps a chance to play O'Neill & Campbell as a front pair in a 4-4-2? What you mean like we did on Saturday when Thompson played on the left and Rivers on the right? Looked like a 4-4-2 to me, but people are convincing themselves it was a 4-2-3-1 just ...

There's things that have gone well and things we need to work on. I have worries that teams scout us and then pla...

In terms of excuses, the pitch and refs didn’t help. We should of had a free kick for a blatant block on rivers leading to their first goal.

Re: Expectations 19/20

at the moment, I'm not too worried by a goalscorer. With this formation, the responsibility for scoring isn't solely on Campbell. He will be expected to score 10-15, but I think Rivers, Thompson and Holmes will also expect to be at about the same. The way they interchange their positions, the defens...

I agree with an earlier post about Glover. I felt that 80% of his play was very good. Even made a couple of great forward runs but the did give the ball away which left us exposed 2/3 times. Once because he waited for the ball rather than going to it, which Armstrong was fuming about. It gave them c...
