Re: Potential new signings

When I Ty you call me a troll so no winning with you lad I (and others) think you’re a troll because you post daft things to get a reaction like: “It’s mid-June and we’ve clearly not finished all our signings but we’re going to finish bottom half” or “I’ve been a fan for 15 years but why do people ...

I fully expect Mondal will move on

Beck will hopefully sign soon which will give us a massive boost. Rumour is Tyrone will sign for the vibes!

Hopefully AA will have the number of Luis Longstaff
I heard that Spendy were a bit short on vibes this season?

Re: Potential new signings

Looking at the likes of Kidderminster, Boston and even Peterborough Sports making quality signings is so frustrating. I honestly feel a bottom half finish this season is the reality. You are definitely a troll on the wind up. Another six weeks until the season starts, the bulk of last season’s squa...

Re: Retained list

Totally agree with this. Get him in! Yes, Beck has had his day but Ty O'Neill has his best days ahead of him & could link up well with Hazell Had his day? He’s 28, he was our best centre forward in a team that finished in the NLN play offs and has clearly improved since then. O’Neil had a good spel...

Re: Retained list

I'd sign O'Neill any day of the week on a 1 year deal with an option, no farting about with trials. In any case, he might have his sights set higher than us.

I rate O'Neill higher than Beck.

That's not to say that Beck couldn't be a good signing for us if we could get him.

Re: Just made Top 30

If they can't afford promotion to the National League on average gates of 2,680 then they are paying their players too much, me thinks.

Or they need to do a Darlo style boost the budget, let the fans be their rich benefactor.

Re: Nathan Lowe

Prior to this season Lowe had 15 goals in 67 games for Shields and at FC United he had a goal every 4 games. You could see he has an eye for goal by what he did in our game at Gateshead. You're making the mistake of thinking that goals in the tin pot leagues mean something. The gulf between Evostik...

Re: George smith departs

I wouldn’t be surprised to see Griffiths and Hedley as fullbacks with Hope and another youngster as back up. Probably wiser using Smiths wage elsewhere in the team and get a young replacement for cover. That would be a bit of a gamble though in my opinion. We’ve got an expanded 46-game league seaso...

It may be a case that we would have kept Ellis but he had the chance to go into management, so all t...

Thing with Cassidy is, it shouldn’t come as a great surprise he’s not a goalscorer. He never has been so we weren’t signing him for his goalscoring record. We signed him because we needed more of a presence up front. In the previous two seasons, we were crying out for that type of forward, a physic...

Pretty much in agreement with Lallacab on who we retain. Basically we lose Beeden, B Taylor, Hope, Storey, Wheatley, Mondal, Rivers, Cassidy, and make decisions on whether we're going to try and sign the loanees. I'd go for Thompson, Rose and possibly O'neill if any of them are available to sign per...

As an aside, I've just thought - say we did somehow get promoted next season, which is the earliest chance - that's at least 1 year and 4 months before we'd be kicking off in the National league, so perhaps by that time we might have firm plans in place for the new ground or may even be at the stage...

Agreed, five years seems a more realistic timeframe really. If it's sooner than that, I'd be amazed.

In defence of the referee I thought he had a decent game. The penalty is a really tight call, but he took his time, consulted the assistant and made his decision. The line is part of the box so I think he may have just got it right. Yes I thought he had a much improved match compared to the Glouces...
