Re: Potential new signings

I'm pretty happy with our early work in the window, we secured key players like Taylor, Lambert and Lawlor, and added in some quality in Rose and hopefully Hazel based on his previous record. To go for playoffs i think we'd still need to add: - Squad player CB - Ball winning midfielder - Wide player...

Re: Best Darlo goals you’ve seen live

Jason Kennedy - (vs Rochdale) league 2 play-off semi final 1st leg.

Pawel Abbott - (vs Grimsby at home at the arena?) Lobbed the keeper from the edge of the 18 yard box when he was about a yard off his line.

Re: Retained list

Tyrone O’Neill becomes a free agent after his contract at Scunthorpe is terminated by mutual consent. I'd imagine Alun will be interested considering he's signed him three times already and If we could get the player back from his initial spell he would certainly improve us but it's been a while sin...

Re: Joe Wheatley

Great signing for them - I don't know why it went wrong with us but good luck to him. Agree if they get him fit and focused could be a really good signing for them. I think the main problem for him last season was fitness. Covid pre-season knocked him sideways and then after that he never really lo...

Re: Nathan Lowe

I only saw him play once for us in person at the last game at Kidderminster so can't rwall7 comment on his overall ability. Looked from some of the earlier game highlights that he had a bit about him and clearly Kiddy have thought the same. I do wonder though, had we signed him, would our Midfield o...

A disappointing if not entirely unexpected sounding game yesterday.

It sounded like it's gone the way our season has since the Alfreton game, a little la...

Re: BPA v Darlington

Just watched the highlights. TBF I've seen worse 0-0's. Both teams seemed to give it a go without much fear of having much to lose, both just lacked a bit a quality in front of goal to get the result. We had a couple of chances and their keeper made a very good save to keep out Dos Santos in the 2nd...

There's something very frustrating about both O'Neill and Cassidy. Cassidy - undeniably works hard for the team and has certainly created a few chances and goals for team mates this year. The work ethic makes me want to like him but for me his goal involvements (goals + assists) just aren't good eno...

Slightly disappointed not to win yesterday after Cassidy sounded like he had a good chance from open play and then missing 2 penalties. But going to remain philosophical about it.

In terms of my own analysis it works by giving teams attacking and defensive scores based on their home and away results.

Re: The penalty that wasn't

I think I'd say the opposite tbh, from the camera angle behind the goal looked to me like contact was on the line, the line belongs to the box so penalty for me.
