Re: SEASON POSTPONED?

if we dont start the season, or play a full season, then how can promotion or relegation happen.
It also means any football below the "elite" levels is a waste of time.
It will be like how the Darlo cricket league worked this summer, nothing riding on the games.

Re: Latest friendly

Thing is they are not packing people into pubs. Pubs must provide table service only. A pub can only be as packed as the area allows with tables socially distanced from each other. Think how much seating is actually available once a distancing is applied and how much space there will actually be. I...

Re: Incoming goalkeeper

If O'Neill hadn't been recalled a few days before our biggest game for years then people probably would have just wished him luck and got over it.
As has been said it was Woodgates right to recall O'Neill and we have no reason to complain. It was the timing that sucked and thats all.

Re: New signing

From what I have heard, Hunt actually approached us with a view to signing. AA checked him out and decided it was one that was good enough to go ahead with.
As has been said elsewhere, he could easily have got a better pay packet elsewhere and probably far closer to his home.

The FA is a private club and make up their own rules. Unless this conflicts with the law of the land then there is nothing a solicitor can do to overturn any decision made by the FA.

Re: Cartman +Burn

From what I understand Burn was offered loan moves to get some game time and he turned them down. If a player is struggling and not playing any football at all then a loan move is the best thing to do, yet he didn't take them up on it. So despite being a massive disappointment on the pitch, he made ...

The entire sports desk team were furloughed. Ironically Loughlin was on his way out until the Teesside editor position became available.
Now he's treading on the toes of his former sports desk colleagues by doing their work while they are twiddling their thumbs.

One thing I’ve never understood with certain Spenny fans is why they’re so keen to deny they’re bankrolled. I don’t get it.
