Don't understand the signing of Noble. That's Armstrong, Dowson, Hatch, Fisher, Purewal and now Noble we have on our books, although if he's better than what we have then I'm all for it.
And Thommo...
I'd class him more of an attacking/wide midfielder.

Re: West Auckland

That was poor, back to long ball second-half and truth be told it was absolutely dreadful. Second to the ball for the majority, what's the point in playing like that when we essentially play with a 3 man-midfield and Thompson drifting? Mitchell dragged us through IMO. Also I didn't understand why on...

Re: Darlington FC V Kendal Town

9 different scorers so far this season, not bad. I thought our attitude was spot on today. We were patient in our build-up and eventually got our rewards. Thompson wasn't getting much luck on the left just like against Burscough and he looked far more dangerous through the middle. Portas ran the sho...

I'd personally go for: Jameson; Brown, White, Hunter, Galbraith; Reed, Portas, Scott; Thompson; Dowson, Armstrong Subs: Bell, Robinson, Mitchell, Fisher, Hatch 4-3-1-2 with us attempting to get the best out of Thompson, who can be a real match-winner as we all well know. Mitchell dropped to the ben...

Scott, Dowson and Armstrong would have been brought off with tomorrow in mind so, like you say, I'd be surprised if Fisher started tomorrow.

Re: Burscough v Darlington Highlights

The midfield kept things together well, Portas and Mitchell were energetic as ever and Scott was the driving force. Burscough seemed to try and match us in midfield at times so hats off to them. What let us down in the first-half was the final ball leading up to the chance, and then in the second-ha...

Re: Burscough V Darlington FC

2 points dropped on the face of things. We started off brightly in the first-half but lost our way a little. Their lad seemed to have all the time in the world for their goal. Our final ball let us down on a couple of occasions. 1-1 was a fair result going into H/T. The opening 10 minutes of the sec...

Re: Darlington FC V Warrington Town

In the playoff final Hopson stayed on the bench and Gary Brown went into midfield. I don't actually think Gray knows where to use Hopson effectively. It's hard he is a bit of a luxury player. I think that's something to do with the fact that Hopson suffered a bad injury against Burscough and conseq...

Re: MGs Team for Saturday

(4-4-2) - Bell; Walker, Hunter, Brown, Galbraith; Mitchell, Portas, Scott, Purewal; Hatch, Dowson.

I think Gray will be tempted to go 4-4-2 with Robinson and Thompson suspended. Personally think Scott can have a massive impact this season from midfield.

Re: Pre Season

Personally I wouldn't fancy Mitchell in amongst a midfield 3, you need 3 centre midfielders not a wide man in there. Too lightweight too much of a liability defensively. Nonsense, the amount of defensive work Mitchell put in against Sunderland and Bishop was ridiculous and it was refreshing to see ...

Re: Pre Season

This squad hasn't improved the team greatly from last year for me. True, it can beat 80% of teams in this league but I predict it will fold when meeting the real contenders. I was sorry to see Ward go as we have never had a player to turn a game when in adversity. When I see suggestions of Purewal ...

Re: Bishop Auckland tonight

First-half I actually thought we played quite good. We pressed well, retained possession with some nice passes and were unlucky not to have scored at least one more. Bishop's goal came from a set-piece which is something we need to work on. Bell didn't have that much to do, pulled off one good save ...

I mentioned it before about playing Brown in his more natural position or not at all and it seems more concerns are surfacing towards the start of the season.

A few interesting comments, certainly this game will have given Gray a bit of thought.

James Armstrong also played again for us tonight, along with Adam Mitchell.

I can see Brown playing right back In favour of Walker? I don't think so. Seems I wasn't a million miles away. We're 3 pre-season games in and he didn't even play right-back against Newcastle Benfield. Gray's clearly switching things around a bit and rightly so. Remember that we're looking to bring...

Re: Newcastle Benfield game

Hopefully we can get Weldon in because it'd free up Galbraith and then we'd have Robinson, Portas and Scott with potentially Hopson too.

Still feel as though we need one more though.
