So you are saying no York player is good enough to play for us just because they are below us in the league.C’mon Pete.

Re: Leamington v Darlington

Just looked like a fair result. Two sides that opened each other up, neither of which looked very solid when put under pressure. It probably summed up where we are as a team. We can knock the ball about fairly well on occasions but we don't look a consistently well drilled, solid side, especially w...

Re: REECE STYCHE TRANSFERRED TO ALFRETON CONFIRMED

I've heard that Alfreton paid 60k for Reece. Tops what we paid last season & also takes a hefty wage off the wage bill. If that is correct then how can we refuse that sort of figure at our level, plus it gives Harvey a great chance to develop with extra games.No brainier IMO. Sent from my iPad usin...

Re: Darlington v Bradford (Park Avenue)

is it going to take injuries to force TW into playing the formation we think is a success? I'd imagine when TW signed Ainge he told him he'd be playing every game - and may well have said the same to Styche. Would be a hard chat to have with either of them if he changed formation through choice.......

Regarding our formation, Kev Luff made a point which I agree with re: our formations and particularly with regard to 4-4-2. It could work for us, but only with 2 stonking centre halves. We have found one in Hughes. If Terry Galbraith can be the other and these two can form a good partnership, and o...
