Re: Away to Trafford in the FA Cup

I`ll be happy if we win 1-0. Think I'd join you in that sentiment. Clean sheets are important at the minute, start keeping a few and we have a really good chance of winning games. Only 3 sides have stopped us from scoring this season; BPA (although we hit the post 3 times and missed a penalty at th...

Of course, we all know that’s not true. You love getting involved in my arguments, you comment every time. So yes, there is faux outrage on your part.

Just pointing out your double standards.

Re: Away to Trafford in the FA Cup

I think you'll find grytters and I were engaging in a bit of banter. It's not quite the same as the endless reams of point scoring and argument you find so much fun. Now you've got me at it! My last comment on location, their official Twitter says Urmston. One person’s banter is another person’s te...

Re: Away to Trafford in the FA Cup

Given how much he dislikes me engaging in long-winded and pointless argument, it’s rather amusing to see Don’tBuyTheSun now doing just that. As someone who lives that way and has been to the ground several times before, I can confirm it is Flixton, not Urmston. (Not that you need my word for it, as ...

Democracy under threat.

That’s the unelected Prime Minister who’s just asked on two occasions to hold a General Election. And on both occasions, Remainer MPs blocked those attempts, explicitly because of their positions on Brexit. I personally believe all new, unelected PMs should mandatorily face a General Election within...

Re: Away to Trafford in the FA Cup

It’s not a bad draw, although their ground is tiny. There’s a big bank for fans to stand on, rather like Heritage Park. But given how bad our record in the Cup is, I just can’t be confident at all. I think we’ve only won one FA Cup game sine demotion, which was West Auckland in a replay five years a...

Also, I think Liddle is going to be first choice while Trotman is out. So it doesn’t make sense to sign a specialist RB who may not even get on the bench. But with Trotman out, Liddle and Wheatley only just returning from injury, Bascome on international duty now (and will be again in future) and At...

Darlington V Blyth

Wheatley hasn’t been much better than Bascome this season. He’s barely played through injury, so that point is incorrect. I think Bascome has been good for us, certainly in parts. He’s had weaker games but so have all of them. Holmes started the opening few games and would be first choice, while Don...

Re: Darlington V Blyth

Yeah I think people are being a bit harsh with some of their assessments. We weren’t terrible and we deserved to win. Not saying we were perfect either, far from it and I would have hoped for a little more improvement by now. But clearly losing players to injury/international duty isn’t ideal. Reinf...
