Re: Could this be an answer to our arena luck....

...or maybe we are cursed because we have a bloomin christmas tree up in reception in september. :wtf: I'll let you off as this link was posted a few days ago on another thread titled 'luck' (page 3). Think this explains the reasons for the Christmas theme.... http://www.durham.gov.uk/Pages/eventin...

Re: Left back

Agreed. We desperately need a proper LB, but I don't think throwing a youth player in is going to be the answer at the moment. Without a reserve side, youth team to first team is a very big step - especially as Burn hasn't even tasted first team football at all. I expect another loanee for this posi...

Come on lads/lasses lets be positive.

The season is not over yet, 8 games in and its all ready doom and gloom! Its no good moping around feeling sorry for ourselves just because we're bottom of the division and haven't won a game yet. We have to rally around our beloved club as much as we can and get on with it as best we can - whether ...

Could this be an answer to our arena luck....

Ever since we made the move to the Arena 6 years ago its been either promotion heart-ache (the 8th placed finishes/playoff semi-final) or seasons of struggle (03/04 and currently now). I've come to the conclusion that the arena is CURSED and there were rumours that poolie workers had done things dur...

Re: Paul Futcher & Colin Todd

A change of formation is needed as we're clearly struggling to pick up points even with the basic 4-4-2. We should now be looking to make it as difficult for teams both at the arena and away so in my opinion we should be adopting a 4-5-1 or 5-4-1. Its got to the stage now where in our current situat...

Re: Curtis Main

Yeah, where and when possible Curtis Main should be in the starting 11 no doubt! However, to be fair to CT on this point, he was unfit for all of pre-season and without the luxury of a reserve team there is no other way of getting him match fit. There is a difference between playing games when 50/75...

Re: Just seen the goals on Sky...

Todd said before the start of the season that he needed two keepers which we have. Now then, Knight was brought in to be number 1, with the younger Liversedge as back up to give him competition. Surely now is the time for Liversedge (whether or not he is experienced or good enough) to be given his c...

Re: Attendance

At least we were'nt the only club last night to have a sub-1K crowd. Hereford had 900 odd last night, think they were playing Bristol Rovers. The crowds were generally poor last night and the JPT is definately a competition that is declining in value.....apart from if your team reaches Wembley.

Squad and first 11

I think CT has now got more than enough quality in this squad to get results, now is the time for him to settle on a first 11. I was surprised with the changes he made tonight, especially starting both Porritt and Cook, without probably a full days training. Thought Lumsdon was also unlucky not to m...

Re: We look at 3 triallists

We lack cover in the full back areas which is probably why CT is taking another look at Baines and Williams. Gall I'm 50/50 on, would be a versitile player in terms of forward options but hasn't shown much of that where ever he's been in the last 2/3 seasons. This summer saw probably more players th...
