Re: To the good people of Hartlepool . . .

‘I just laugh at it by being offended someone did the same thing I did’ Ok :lol: But I'm not offended. Laughing at people having unsavoury reactions to things, does not imply offence on my part. Big difference here also, is lots of lefties make fun of others who do not vote or think like they do. T...

Re: To the good people of Hartlepool . . .

Problem with Labour supporters, as you've just proven there, is they can't talk politics without being incredulous at non Labour voters.

That's why more and more people turn their back on Labour.

From what I've seen, they're all beyond excited at all of the homecomings - no doubt proving in their minds that Blyth are the better c...

Re: 6 players leave

Not too concerned about this, as we will have targets to replace these guys... Campbell - probably the most gifted player to leave but ultimately needed 50 chances to score 1. One of our biggest problems in the last 2 seasons has been that we created tonnes of chances every match and blobbed most of...

They are not "quids in". No clubs are "quids in" right now trust me. We have made about 10x more from our FA Cup run than the money National League clubs get from BT over a season.

Re: Brackley v Darlo

Instead of another forward surely we need a physical, big strong centre half and a proper creative midfielder.
