Re: New signings?

He has also played 30 games at this level and managed to get 3 goals as a bonus. So he'll know all about the physical side of National North football and by all accounts did very well at Gateshead and loved the challenge. The only worry being he played at Gateshead alongside Mike Williamson - an ex...

Re: New signings?

Without reinforcements arriving I was wondering whether we change shape for Saturday and go 5-3-2. Bring Beeden and his size into CB with Taylor and Storey, and just give Beeden the instruction of go and head the ball, anything in the air he is there to attack, if the CF drops deep Beeden goes with...

I’ll give you a clue he is 37 in September. Wonder if he likely to be made captain? Yep this I suspect his body told him before anyone else needed to. Intrigued about his travel arrangements though. Everything points to him being based in the North West. Seems a fair bit of travel for training, whe...

Re: New signing

Hunt is a curious one, I wonder what persuaded him to step down into part-time football... maybe he's doing coaching qualifications or something. Either way, an experienced head at the back is no bad thing. Playing for one of the bigger sides in NL football was probably a draw for him, the fact he ...

Re: The Team 20/21 season

His minutes to goals/assists is actually decent. It’s difficult to judge with such limited game-time spread across a number of seasons. He is definitely more of an impact player but at 22, still has time to improve. I certainly wouldn’t be writing it off, like some have, for the reasons I’ve outlin...

Re: New deal for Donawa, Hatfield, Rivers, Holmes, Hedley, Reid, Storey , Campbell, Laing, Wheatley, Liddle, Watson,

We defo need a GK, CB and CF that go straight into that team. Too many times last season we were gave away goals or weren't clinical enough in front of goal. I think AA will have a similar thinking... he will want to make the next step and be in the play offs not skirting around them

Re: Potential new signings

I would like a big 6'3+ head it and kick it defender, but I dont think it makes financial sense to add a 4th CB especially when Reid can fill in in emergencies, so could see that being a one in one out situation, but then who would be let go? Either Galbraith or Laing. Neither are going to get any ...

Listening to AA talking to Ray Simpson after the match, AA said he hoped to bring in a left back, so I think this is a case of balancing the books, although I doubt we were having to pay anything for lambert to play for us.
I'm sure we would've been!

My opinion on this is solely going by the games at BM that were sponsored. Correct me if I’m wrong but only 6 out of 13 games have been sponsored and the match ball only 5 times this season. To me that’s pretty piss poor from a Commercial Director. Yes the ground looks better with the additional pit...
