Re: Contracts

Not everyone is as cautious with their contracts. Kings Lynn have just signed striker Dayle Southwell and given him a two-and-a-half-year contract. He had apparently been on more than £1,000 a week at Halifax. Another club with an owner pumping the money in. This is why we must aim for promotion as...

Re: Spennymoor Away

Quite often our stewards go to steward Darlo fans at away games. I'm sure our stewards will be at the game today & they could easily point them out to the Spennymoor officials, who could deny them access. Theres just no need, has there been an issue at any of the games mentioned? Leave the lad to h...

Re: Interview with Johnston on Official Website

To me H1987 is bringing back memories. The Arena was awful, it's easy to forget this with the passing of time. I didnt mind it tbh, my biggest issue was getting out of the car park afterwards, but its exactly the same at BM. I guess the biggest issue is that we are bursting st the seams from a corp...

Re: Gateshead game...

We’re now doing season tickets where you can pay £20 a month (adult standing) so you don’t even have to shell out a lump sum! I think it would be a wise decision. The players have shown in the first two games that when the click and up the tempo they can be really good. The longer they play togethe...

Re: Scouting Report - Motherwell Game

I'm not overly worried about any perceived lack of fitness at this stage, they'd only had what, 4 training sessions and then straight into a game against a pro outfit? Seems unreasonable criticism to me. I'd loved to have read some scouting assessments for us last year though... the fitness comment...

Re: Salford city cup draw

So the “ordinary” fan doesn’t give a monkeys about league 2? That’s a bit condescending wouldn’t you say? Sky has always been about appealing to the masses though. Why not it’s a good business model but the fact remains that league 2 wouldn’t be televised live at all if it wasn’t for the internatio...

Re: Jordan Nicholson released

No, why would we? He was mutually released from his contract. He wanted to go, we wanted him off the wage bill. We can't have it both ways. The only way to get a fee for him would have been to refuse to cancel his contract. I was trying to point that out to Andy. See my comments above I know we wil...

Re: Help before I become as bad as him !!!!!

You can set ignore for posters.

I'd question the validity of any statement that begins "I'm not violent,but" as it sounds almost like "I'm not racist, but" and my experience of people using that phrase would indicate otherwise.

Re: Laing

Joking aside, the fact that Armstrong has now brought a decent core of his Blyth team with him (and hopefully a couple more to come) bodes really well for next season. A good core of players who already understand the way he's likely to want us to play, and presumably who all get along well and bri...

Re: Female managers

The problem would arise if the female manager took a fancy to one of our players. For example if Tommo was having a stinker but our new gaffer had a soft spot for smaller rugged looking players with tatts and a slight bald patch, would she really haul him off if he was having a stinker. Likewise if...

Very few if any managers, especially at this level will ever get their contract paid up. There will be all sorts of. It is clauses for both parties.

Armstrong for me. I know he did a bit of a number on us last time around but the bloke knows how to get a tune out of some bang average players.
