We will be playing at the arena again next season - fact.

Quakerz - if you actually attended games and spoke to people you might actually find our facts, rather than spreading s*** on this board.

Can’t believe we’ve let our 20 goals a season striker go 🤪🤪

Thanks to both players for their services. Ainge was a wage we simply couldn't afford. Elliott really staked a claim to be No.1 next season in his spell from January onward. But for me I think the value in these leagues is always to have a cheaper on loan keeper from a league club. Would be very happy to have Zac Hemming back on loan from Boro or someone of that ilk (when football returns of course).

As interesting is who hasn't been announced. Trotman for example, I didnt get the indication he was likely to re sign for next season based on his netcafe but no announcement yet. Also, we know the likes Campbell and Hatfield are out of contract hopefully that means the club is working on sensible deals for these players, to start when football begins again.

Trotman’s Netcafe :thumbdown:

It would seem his head is elsewhere and he kept banging on about the travelling.
Mr Singh said this " I'm not expecting to get back any of the money I've already put in, I'm prepared to write it off for the future of the club. I'm not hanging in to make any kind of financial gain in the short or long term - if someone was prepared to come in and take the club off my hands, I'd be more than willing to discuss it"

Yes he'd improved towards the end of the season just gone, but he never inspired confidence & I'm sure there are better options out there. But thanks Chris for your efforts & I hope you find another club.

" Ainge was a wage we simply couldn't afford"............ plus he really was a big disappointment!

Agree he is very unlikely to to resign. Plus he has deferred his final year at Uni so he doesn't seem entirely committed to that either as Love Island has taken over his life.

He was, but he's also played most games he's been fit at CB for Boston, who are the 3 or 4th best team in the league this season. Doesn't work out for players sometimes, and I agree he wasn't mobile enough to be a forward anymore. But I think it's fair to say he's good enough for this division at CB, just not at that price.

Agreed, he was getting better so perhaps we could get him a cap as a going away present?

And then undid it all all in the space of 90 minutes, in our last match.

Once that was seen it couldn't be unseen, and would forever leave doubts in people's minds going forwards. Could it happen again, if so how often? I don't know if he maybe had a chance of a new contract before Farsley, but that match was a new contract killer.
We are Darlo! We know our shitt! If we say it's 1-2-0-1-1-3-0-1-1 then you better believe it! La la la oo, la la la oo (clap, clap, clap, clap)
