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:

Re: New signing

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.

Re: New signing

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:

Re: Boost the budget

I'm curious as to how exactly 30k will do anything to fill the holes in their finances? Seems a very unambitious target to say the least.

A good point that halts the slide in form. Honestly, I would’ve taken a point before kick off, and a late equaliser is always nice. Haven’t seen any highlights yet, obviously, but nice to see Omar on the scoresheet. He’s been underused lately imo. Should we not have a bit more ambition than to be s...

We haven't got anyone to fill that role now. Campbell needs a big lad up there to bring the best ou...

Re: Hereford

A point away at Hereford is a decent result. However, if you are being hypercritical it is probably 2 points dropped in the circumstances of chasing a playoff place. With results of teams around us you have to try and cash in on wins, draws get you nowhere when you are hunting down the top 7. I thin...

Looking at the fixtures to come, we have played a lot of the top teams away already and some of them twice meaning if we can keep the tempo and consistency against the lower teams, our run in is favourable. To play... 1. Kings Lynn (h) 4. Brackley (h) 5. Boston (a) 6. Alty (h) 8. Gateshead (a) 10. ...

Re: Eight games in 29 days.

The significance of winning tonight is that it has bought us a 'free hit' at Chester, I think we now have a buffer to at least 7th even if we lose and accounting for other teams having games in hand... that is the important difference between winning games like tonight and drawing. We are playoff co...

Re: Eight games in 29 days.

Draw your 'difficult' away matches and win at home puts you in a strong position over a season. However, really draws get you nowhere and winning matches creates the big moves. I'd be going to Guiseley and Chester expecting to win, on current form and despite our defence it may be a case of winning ...

Re: Darlington V Gloucester

Not just the delivery of set-pieces but we haven't had enough players to target when throwing it into the box. We may have a bit more presence now with Reid and Martin, sometimes I think because of this we have been reluctant to go direct at times.
