Re: Holness returns

I'm pleased he is back as he does provide a bit of strength in the midfield that we probably lack without Hatfield in the side. Yes, he was a carry over from the TW era and AA wants to put his stamp on the team now, however he gave him enough chances to prove himself and I suppose Alun does rate him...

We've had our luck in the draw so far, the pessimist I am thinks this is where we get drawn away to a dud like Chorley, Chester etc :shifty: Here's hoping we don't though! :thumbup:

Re: Darlington V Tadcaster Albion FA Cup

Apologies if I missed an announcement at the start of this years' FA Cup, but quite a few of the midlands teams who were in the northern half of the draw last year seem to now be in the southern half. Have the geographical boundaries been redrawn for 1 year to restrict travelling due to COVID? Can ...

Re: Kidderminster Saturday October 10th

Fortunately I was working today, so didn't get a chance to watch the game, sounds like I didn't miss much. Clearly the lack of a normal pre-season has hampered our preparations, but surely a lot of teams in our league are in the same position? Yes, it will have impacted but I'd say that teams such ...

Re: Early odds

Spendy and Gloucester are exceptional value there. i fancy Gloucester for the league (if it starts) Funny club, Gloucester. Often tipped at the start of the season and yet never seem to live up to their potential. In the 11 consecutive seasons they've spent in the NLN or NLS they've never finished ...

No - because not only is Devante Cole way too good for this level - he also looks nothing like the trialist.

Re: Spectators in grounds

Which is why what we have proposed and the idea put out by DJ to encourage local Premier League and Football League clubs to pair with National League clubs makes real sense. If not there is a risk in my opinion of a vacuum between the top 2 leagues and non-league below us and clubs like us will be ...

NLN line up gets stronger and stronger each season. Was hoping to lose Brackley to NLS, but no such luck.
I agree, it's harder to guess who might struggle than those who could do well.

Re: Maguire & Langstaff Released

Maguire signing is another pretty big statement of intent. Great options up top now, just a matter of AA finding the right combination and keeping everyone content as I would imagine there will have to be a fair bit of rotation. Hopefully, the season can start in some form! :thumbup:

Laurent Blanc was at least 38 when he joined Man Utd...ended up with a Premier League winners medal. Age is just a number and if you still have the fitness and desire to play then I don't see a problem with signing him.

Very pleased with both signings and could be a pretty good piece of business... once the new season starts, here's hoping! On paper we are beginning to have the makings of a squad more than capable of challenging in the top 7 I just hope we can get going at some point in the future. :thumbup:
