Re: Graeme Lee

What I loved about Gray's teams was the mentality of expecting to win games. All through my life as a darlo fan defeats have been greeted with a roll of the eyes rather than genuine frustration, so it felt extraordinary to be expecting to win every week, and that came not just because we were playin...

Re: Boston V Darlington

Wasn't particularly happy with 3 at the back. Very tough formation to get right without a lot of coaching. We have a couple of evenings a week. This one is on Armstrong tonight unfortunately. Let's not blow a positive goal difference on one awful showing. Same. It's just not a formation you can spr...

Jake Cassidy

Bit of a personal favourite of mine this season. We haven't had a player quite the same as him since Graeme Armstrong, I think. Defenders must hate playing against him, he just gets his head to absolutely everything, grafts, pops up in the right places, and is good with his feet. Four goals isn't a ...

Those highlights are a real treat for fans of randomly selected snippets of football matches.

Enjoyed the suggestion that Kyle Perry nearly had his shirt ripped off, which he seems more than capable of doing by himself with his gut.

5-1 it finished, five different scorers. Sounds like Lambert played well.

Now very solidly in mid table, which seems about right tbh.

Re: Danny Rose

At a guess I'd say the places up for grabs could be purver for Wheatley, Ellis for storey, Smith if available for hedley, Nelson for charman if his suspension has begun (I think maybe not but somebody else can probably say for definite), and he might look at kds but not sure who'll come in there.

Seems to have made a swift recovery. Scored a hat trick in yesterday’s win over Cambridge.
I live in Shrewsbury and was at the game yesterday - he was excellent. First time I'd seen him since he scored two and hit the bar in the last game at the arena (if memory serves).

Yeah, probably too soon to be planning for the play offs but very nice to see three points and a clean sheet, albeit telford sound a bit of a state just now. Sort of vindicates the view that we were maybe a good defensive organiser away from being a decent side, and great to see charman scoring pret...

Re: Darlo v York

In the view from the tin shed it looks like his knee does jolt sideways as Cooper's foot comes across him, so you can certainly see the case for the red. I was very surprised on the day. Not sure how anyone can argue with the penalty to be honest. Felt for purver, as he had only just moved to centre...

He always seems to be staggered to discover that darlo racked up a load of debts to him, which was surely entirely based on the contracts he signed and the budget he allowed. He probably doesn't want to kill pools as a point of principle, he doesn't seem to like this reputation as a club killer. But...

Re: Curzon 31.08

Defence was absolutely powder puff. Storey and hedley in particular, they were chucking balls at storey knowing he wasn't winning his headers. Going forward we were sort of okay, at times, but I don't think we'll be troubling the top half any time soon. Hatfield good, kds okay, Griffiths okay going ...
