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

In the 1st game they had 2/3 almost open goal chances....hopefully they'll wear the same boots. the 2 strikers for Walsall have both been benched. New duo to contend with. Number 25 Macdonald who came on after 20 (and was the best player on the pitch after that) has been starting. Completely differ...

Re: Jack Lambert

Understood but AA has known since the day Tyrone was signed that he'd have to be replaced. It's unfortunate that is sooner than he anticipated but hopefully replacement can be found soon. I am sure there us a lot of work going on behind the scenes. His plan was to transition to Gary Martin in Janua...

Re: Liam Connell - Boost the Budget

I must admit I thought that Shields might just grant him another month's loan to allow him to play in this big game. I'm sure they would have extended his loan at somewhere like Whickham at the drop of a hat. Clearly he would love to play in the first round of the cup at a league ground and Shields...

Re: Liam Connell - Boost the Budget

agree with a few, we can't do a boost the budget for everytime we want a player. Clubs get wind of it, it would scupper every deal the board/AA do in the future as they'd always want more £££. Not sure I understand why SS need him. He'll be on a decent wage and he's not playing. A club at that level...

Re: Darlington V Kidderminster

What impressed me the most was how much of a team we looked. We defended as a team, we attacked as a team. The effort was there for us to see. As Q says, it's like night and day in comparison. AA looks like he knows exactly what he's doing. Throughly enjoyed last nights game. Whilst they did have pl...

I couldn't make the game, so was using flash scores. Part way through the game I saw Tamworth - Darlington 1-2 and thought £UC&. Next thing I know it's come through as Tamworth - Darlington 0-3.

Re: Burn Gone

one point is that Burn's proposed loan and permanent moves, were so he WASN'T financially worse off. We were going to pay a portion of his wages on loan, and Whickham offered him the same money. This leads me to think that he wanted to be paid off, then go to Whickham

Offered to Whickham permanently, in same wages. Offered to train with first team with view to playing RB but made no effort in training so it wa...

Re: FA Cup 4th Qualifying Round - Away to Tamworth or Hereford

The aftermath of the game has really exposed what an angry atmosphere there is at Hereford despite them being in the play-off positions. They seem to back the manager Slade but want most of the players out, including Styche, who seems to be hated by most of them. And he didn't even play in the cup ...

I honestly think he'd work well as a youth coach. The attention he gave Saunders before he left. Most youth football is soft so it goes with his style of play (that's not a dig, that's the truth)

Re: Leamington or Chasetown

the draw could have been better, could have been worse. Whoever we play, it will be tough, but we are capable of winning or at least gaining a replay. Leamington did lose their main goalscorer from last year. Had a decent start but have tailed off a bit.

I can't believe the use of the word "but" on the bunker to be honest.

It actually seems to completely b...

Re: Away to Trafford in the FA Cup

To be honest I still wouldn't put Burn in. Laing to face a fitness test before the game. If he fails it I'd expect. A back four of Hedley, Galbriath, Watson, Liddle. Guess the positive is Laing is fit enough for a fitness test, means most likely, even if he doesnt pass for the game tomorrow, he sho...

Re: Darlo v York

football really is fine margins. There were a few things that didn't go for us: 1. The ball hitting the post and bouncing out. Centremetres one way and we'd have been 1 up 2. CB getting injured. This meant that we had 2 left footed CBs, with one of them only being 5'10 or 5'11 i would guess (up agai...

Until we scored I thought we looked garbage. We looked slow, lethargic and didn't look up for a fight which spurred them on a bit. Think our equaliser was massively important. Didn't fancy playing a full half 1-0 behind as the crowd would have got more and more frustrated. After the goal, we were do...
