Re: Darlington V Hornchurch Trophy Quarter Final

Positive news from NESN interview with Danny O'connor. Looks like Maguire will be fit to play atleast some part at the weekend. Guess the big question is whether to stick or twist with the 4-4-2 that worked against Weymouth and Wealdstone if we don't have Charman to play in the forward line. Plenty ...

Re: York City

Fair points Gramps but some seem to base their opinions solely on photographs which are no doubt realistic.

Re: York City

Can’t imagine DBC getting involved with a £40million sports, leisure and retail complex. The report they commissioned into their own version of this at the arena was deemed unviable so if you’re holding your breath for them to get involved with us, you’ll be waiting a long time.

Re: That penalty

Re: That penalty

Wheatley's tackle: Yellow card was the right call. I winced a little when he flew in. Rightly or wrongly, you're asking for trouble when you go in like that, whether you win the ball or not! Penalty decision: Probably one of the worst decisions I've seen at this level (and I've seen a few!). Hits H...

Secondly, Why was their no.7 not booked for trying to bring down Sousa in the run up to the 4th goal, the referee plays the advantage so clearly sees it as a foul.

Re: That penalty

Not the worst ref we’ve had by a long stretch. But I hate the thought that Wheatley’s challenge is getting pushed out the game. With fans in the ground those tackles are as good as goals, they get everyone going. The penalty I thought hit him above the T-shirt line which I thought was now no pen? My...

Re: Wealdstone match thread

Well if that’s our last game of the season we can be proud to have gone out on a high. Last 2 games we’ve played really well in that 4-4-2, lots of structure without the ball and more direct with it. Lots to build on and great to get £6k in the back and at least whatever the losers fee is in the nex...

Re: Kettering Town

Sadly I feel that by playing Wealdstone on Saturday we are leaving ourselves wide open to accusations of hypocrisy.

Both arrive on an initial 1 month loan from South Sheilds.

I’d love to say I can’t believe we’re in this situation. But as you say the national league have been inept from the start. How can directors at these clubs take loans with no idea when they will have the income to pay them back? It’s the definition of trading insolvent. Where will the money be comi...

The beauty of this club is that that fans get to choose. Hoops (or a variant of) or not (something else x3).

What a good result and performance that was. Can't avoid how poor Weymouth were, no shots for Saltmer save but that was in part down to our good work. Noticably played a good 10 or 15 yards deeper without the ball which helped made us a lot more solid. Going back to front a bit quicker also helped g...

Re: 4th Place Finish This Season

Will be based on expected goals i assume. We've only really lost by the odd goal at home this season and on top of that we put 6 past Blyth so our home goals scored won't look too bad compared to goals conceded, which then gives you a statistical chance of winning more matches. Then away from home w...
