Re: Holness returns

Great news! Get the Hatfield - Wheatley - Holness trio back in midfield again and that will do just fine for me.

Re: Government Bailout for National League

NL, NLN & NLS have managed to start the season but already several games called off due to players with Covid. Can see it is going to be a very stop / start affair which could even see the season not completing on time. Hope HMG scheme is flexible enough to allow for this. There is zero chance of t...

Re: Government Bailout for National League

It's a bit of a funny one this, public money being used to bail out football clubs that in many cases are badly run and unsustainable as businesses. It seems a bit like kicking the can down the road in some cases - should the bailout be conditional on the club's being supported agreeing to meet som...

I suppose the alternative might be we end up with Holness returning? I've not seen that he's signed anywhere else yet.

I'd be perfectly happy if that were the case.

Very happy. We were at our best season last season with him in midfield.

Re: Attacking options

AA had no issues in Atkinson leaving to go and play in Iceland when he was at Blyth. The difference is, I guess, that Atkinson had a solid offer and Omar is taking his chance. Harsh to say 'he's not that fussed about being at Darlington'. Omar wants to try for full-time football and obviously we can...

Re: The Team 20/21 season

Noticed that Danny Graham has left Blackburn, he’s from the area and maybe wants a similar path to what Nicky Hunt’s doing. Alun did say in his interview that he’s looking for another striker, I know that I’m probably putting 2+2 together and getting 5 but you never know I reckon you are putting 2 ...

Re: Playoffs

Is Jameson really an option? Personally, I don't think he is.

For me, Maguire would be the No 1 target of that quartet, but there are a lot of ifs and buts.

I refused to get drawn into an argument over some of those so called "protestors" I realise not all of them were there to cause trouble but as was the case in London in 2011 it soon turned into opportunist thuggery.
