Re: Ground share

So in essence you’ve got nothing. Serious question would you prefer the club to go under then go to the arena?

Re: Ground share

H1987 as you’ve stated you won’t go to the Arena, I’m assuming you want us to play at BLackwell, I asked this question before, but how would you make it viable it the present situation? How would you make up the shortfall in revenue?

Re: Ground share

Wow, those people who don’t want to go to the Arena, it’s a simple choice of either playing there or effectively get zero income if playing at BM. Genuinely to those people, what is your master plan for the how the club survives if only 500-700 people (the majority if not all would be season ticket ...

Re: Maguire & Langstaff Released

So other than a goalkeeper we need a mobile attacking midfielder, although and I suspect I’m in the minority here I’m a bit worried about cover for central defence. However, it’s much easier to get a central defender on loan then it is a forward. The other issue for me and its the same as last year ...

Re: Retention for next year

Wheatley is a defensive midfielder his job isn’t to score goals. That’s not to say he won’t chip in with 1-2, but his job is to sit in front of the back 4. Armstrong plays with a defensive midfielder, so unless he changes his style of play, where stuck with the useless lump of lard, who happens to b...

Re: Chester game....

Just one game too many yesterday and with Chesters constant pressing we couldn’t get going. The only real criticism I would have was with AA putting Atkinson in. He never really went looking for the ball while Wheatley and Reid did, so didn’t give us much of an outlet. Didn’t really understand why H...

Re: Guiseley

Very good win tonight. First 20 minutes is probably the poorest we’ve played for along time and it took us 15 minutes before we managed to string more than 2-3 passes together. How we managed to be 1-0 up I’ll never know. Watson had a shocking first 20 minutes and it was his mistake that led to the ...

Re: Darlington V Alfreton

Billy Heath constant screaming at his players must be off putting. In the second half we said to the number 6 when he came off how do you put up with him after being berated most of the match. He just said ‘I know’. Same question to one of the subs warming up was the same answer, but he did say he’s...

Re: Darlington V Gloucester

Elliott certainly could do better for their first goal, but as you say the main culprits were Laing, Storey and Liddle. That doesn’t mean he should be dropped though, during this recent spell he’s been good and that’s coming from someone who didn’t rate him that highly before. Armstrong himself says...

Re: Spennymoor Away

I’m not Andys biggest fan, but I’ve seen him at two away matches since his ban and he’s been perfectly ok, he’s just supported the team. If he doesn’t have too much to drink he always is. I suspect he’s already learnt his lesson and will be careful in the future.

Re: Darlington V Kidderminster

Hard fought win tonight. We missed a couple of chances before we scored. I’ve no idea how the goal was allowed because although their defenders head was slightly down, O’Neills foot was high and he kicked him in the nose which resulted in him being substituted. Bit of luck for once for us, but I wou...

Re: Darlington V Boston

What penalty, the one where Wheatley dived in, didn’t touch the number 10 and he fell over clutching ankle like it was broken? Then 20 seconds later got up and didn’t even have the good grace to limp.

Re: Darlington V Boston

On a serious note Connell definitely gives the defence more confidence. He comes for through balls very well and commands his area on crosses. I’m not saying Elliott is a poor keeper and if he’s been playing through an injury, that has to be factored in, but Connell so far looks to be quite a big st...

Re: Altrincham

The reason I think the ref has given it for denying a goalscoring opportunity is because when he goes over to the touchline and explains it to their manager, the manager points downfield towards our goal. Earlier in the game Laing got yellow carded for bringing one of their players down, which he ma...

Re: Gateshead game...

I’m not too worried about Laings distribution as it’s clearly what Armstrong wants him to do. In the first half some of his long cross field balls did go astray but in the second half a lot more hit their mark, or were headed out of play which gave us the position up the field, hence win win.

Re: Halifax Friendly Now at Blackwell Meadows

Who’s abusing anyone? Some people have pointed out they’re not convinced by Bascombe, some say they thought he played well. Just about everyone has said he was at fault for the goal. That’s not abuse, it’s fact, Armstrong said it in his interview.
