Re: Telford V Darlington

I think we need to be careful about singling out Wheatley for too much personal criticism. The lad has been through a really tough time in his personal life and we need to tread carefully with him. It is correct to say he has not been on top form this season but we know he can be a very decent playe...

Re: Telford V Darlington

Nothing to look forward to now. Time for a total rebuild It can only be that now. Start planning for next season...pretty sad when it's only January! :thumbdown: The big question is who is going to be put in charge of the re-building for next season. Will DJ back AA and allow him a third attempt to...

Re: Telford V Darlington

To be honest I am not Armstrong’s biggest fan but I feel this one is more down to the players on the pitch. He has put out a team that should have been capable of winning this game and clearly the players have let him down.

Games against bottom of the league teams can be tough when they are scrapping for the points. Happily take a 1-0 win today.

Re: Jake Lawlor

I’m not saying it is guaranteed to end well at Poolie because Singh seems to have a self- destruct button. However at this moment in time I am envious of how well they are doing, especially the cup success. I would not be surprised to see them struggling in the League next season with Lee and Nelson...

Re: Jake Lawlor

No doubt Singh is not a man to have much trust in. However, if we were Poolie fans we might think differently. Fact 1. Under his leadership Hartlepool have regained their Football League status. Fact 2. They have progressed to the 1/4 finals of the EFL Cup and are 2 games from Wembley. Fact 3. They ...

Re: Jake Lawlor

Assume that both Lawlor and AA have sensibly agreed till the end of the season with a view to reviewing at the end of the season. If he's enjoying it and no other full time clubs come in then he'll stay. Don't think there's any question that he's a step above what we had at the start of the season....

Great to have Lawlor back. The slight disappointment is that he is only on a contract until the end of the season. Taylor, Ellis, Lawlor, Hatfield, Rose, Purver, Cassidy; we need to try and build the squad around these next season. A fully fit David Wheater would be a bonus. Agreed. I've seen enoug...

Re: Luke charman

I mean, we could let him go for 20K with lots of add ons, but then what if he doesn't end up being a success and gets released by Rochdale. Add ons are no guarantee and you have to be prepared to knock down the price if you want them included. Putting a positive spin on it, at least 40K is guarante...

Re: Luke charman

I understand that we can not hold him back but if he is allowed to leave for £40k with no potential extras it will be daylight robbery and those that have allowed it to happen have been very naive. Hypothetically what if Charman had said well if you won't agree to £40k I'll just take my chances on ...

Re: Luke charman

Let’s hope there are sell ons as will be a poor deal for the club if not. However, thinking back to last summer in the clubs defence. We had a largely untried youngster who at the time kept getting injured, probably didn’t look quite fit enough to play regularly and had not played very many games. ...

Scored a hat trick last night for Marske playing centre forward - I still think there could be a player in there hopefully
Good news maybe we have been playing him out of position and he could fill the Charman role playing off Cassidy.

Probably depends on the terms of the release clause, which could stipulate all sorts - we don't know. It may only give the buying club permission to speak to the player. It might be £41k (rumoured) with future add-ons. We can only hope that any clause does give us some kind of opportunity to receiv...

Re: Luke charman

Rochdale is apparently where he is going and has played his last game for us. Thanks for the memories Luke and good luck with the rest of your career. A million pound move to the Championship in a couple of years would be nice if it means we pocket a nice little earner 😀

I doubt Taylor just let it go. I think he just makes a mess of the save and we got extremely lucky. Why the referee initially signaled a free kick to Darlington is a complete mystery.
