Re: Tough one to call....Wednesday's game

We should get absolutely murdered on Wednesday. Should. We have done well and gain lots of money for this run. That is the important thing for me We might get lucky mind.................. I expect them to have the edge on us but murdered seems a bit strong. Fitness wise they will certainly have the...

Re: Sold out?

Already seen someone on Twitter attempting to resell at a large profit. It boils my bones. To be fai...

Re: Home V Gainsborough Trinity in the Trophy

If it's a draw I see there's a replay date but I've just read Colne v Southport will play to a finish. Is this something teams can just decide between them? Interesting. Sort of. Default position is replay but clubs can decide to settle on the day if they want. There is a box on the teamsheet which...

Re: The Squad FA Cup

Its not their choice if they are selected they are effectively banned from playing for us. I always remember that this was discussed about international retirement - it's not strictly something a player can do it's an informal arrangement that they have basically been asked not to be selected.

Re: The Squad FA Cup

You can't pull out of an international squad injured and then play for your club side during the same international period - it gives the game away a bit that you are actually fit enough to play. The examples above are great but all those clubs sides don't have fixtures at the time so injured or not...

It may be a dumb question but where does the £33,000+ figure come from? I can remember seeing a post elsewhere that suggested that getting on TV would be worth £67,000, so I assume that the 33,000 figure is a split of that, but I don't know if the 67,000 is reliable, and the same for all TV compani...

Based on the Halifax game it would be suicide. Those floating fans who turned up and couldn’t see the game wouldn’t come again. I’d rather a “comfortable” 2500.
