Re: DFC Voted for League to be Null & Void

DJ has been on the Non League Show podcast, stating we lost around 50k in January.

The situation is completely untenable and I think we should refuse to play from Saturday onwards.

Re: That penalty

Football is a public game, followed by millions who are financially and emotionally invested in their clubs. It is actually a multi-billion pound private enterprise in most cases. How many clubs / institutions are actually publicly owned? Don't pretend it is more romantic than it actually is. Again...

Re: That penalty

Especially at the top end of the game, managers and players have to come out after games to justify their decisions immediately after a game, but referees can walk away without any explanation, despite often having a major influence on a game. Not really true is it. Justify their decisions. How man...

Re: That penalty

The Wheatley yellow card is never a caution or even a foul. If the rules of the game supposedly now dictate that a challenge of that quality is now "reckless" then we might as well pack it in and watch basketball. As mentioned earlier, there is also a complete lack of transparency over how referees ...

Campbell was deservedly subbed. He was very very poor.

Having said that, I do agree he is usually the first to be chopped which often isn't fair.

I also think we leave our subs far too late. We are constantly chasing games at the minute but wait an age to do anything about it.

Re: Farsley coverage

Teams are happy for us to have the ball as they know they can easily defend our threat in the final thi...

Re: Brackley v Darlo

Carbon copy of the home defeats this season. Poor goals conceded and good on the ball until we get into the final third.

If the opposition has a reasonable shape and gets an early lead, it's game over.

Re: Away to Bristol rovers

You absolutely can question recent selections without questioning the competence of anyone. Are you saying we didn't have two fit CB's that could have played over Atkinson? Why do we continue to persist with Reid who is consistently anonymous in games? Why, when 6 nil down, did we not give Hudson m...

Re: Team v BPA

Don’t understand the formation tonight. Why go 4-2-3-1? Just put Atkinson in midfield, bring Storey in at CH and not play maguire or O’neill. The two with Reid doesn’t work, he doesn’t have the legs. Hoping for Holness, Hatfield and Wheatley on Sunday. Thought exactly the same when I saw the team s...

Re: Team v BPA

No idea what we were trying to do tonight. O'Neill playing deep was bizarre and should have been canned not persisted with. Reid offers precisely nothing and our midfield had no energy again.

Unfortunately this is now 4 identical home performances which is a worrying trend.

It's truly baffling how Reid appears to be the first name on the team sheet every week. I thought he had a good first half but don't see how he fits into our best midfield 3. As for the defence, what a car crash. Hunt is a massive miss and that was highlighted today. It is also worrying that in the ...

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

When Ty & Campbell played in the same side Campbell tended to be out on the left or right. My recollection was we had two up top when we had O'Neill. Campbell would generally play off him but don't remember him being played wide specifically - at Trafford in particular he was mostly central and was...
