Re: Potential new signings

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

Given it is now a month since Club said we were in contract discussions with Griffiths and Hope are we to assume they are not re-signing for us or did I miss any anouncement?
Ray is away on holiday, so doubt we will hear any news until he has returned

Re: Nathan Lowe

I'm not too disappointed by this, we already have Purver, Rose and Moke, we need someone different to those 3 with some pace who can break the lines and chip in with goals, Lowe wasn't this.

Re: New stadium funding

110 spaces would be nowhere near enough for a 5000 capacity stadium Fleetwood have 6 car parking spaces in their club car park. Salford City have about 20. Accrington Stanley have 30. Stockport have about 90. Not sure any of their capacities are lower than 5000. What is more important is good publi...

I think last years total raised was £134,725 and there was over 1000 investors. So to get nearly half the total from 245 investors is fantastic and it shows that many fans have to still make a contribution, including me.
Wasn't it closer to 700ish investors?

Cassidy a very strange one. Notwithstanding all the debate about his goal scoring record, the fact he played 39 games last season suggests he was one of the first names on the team sheet. Strange. I would imagine he came in as one of the top earners last season, AA has offered him a new contract on...

Re: York v Darlington

I'm not having any of this! He was offside, no amount of examples will convince me otherwise! The York player was actually running back towards his own goal and when the camera does focus on him he's at least 7/8 yards in behind. I was once a qualified referee myself and the youngest in the country...

They don't particularly look like they were stepping out though - live, basically everyone (including the York playr) appeared to be just kind of stood there, as if nobody expected the ball to be fired forwards so quickly. The replay seems to suggest that was pretty much the case. Yep - though you ...

Collett

Austin

Gray

Ravenhill
Gregan
Bannister

Abbott
Blake
Gabbiadini

Had to squeeze Gregan into midfield but that forward line with Bannister in behind them would score goals!

Was it a recommendation from Craig Liddle or more 'do you want to have a look at this lad, he's up here because his mates have signed for Boro but he's not good enough for us'.

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...
