Re: Hartlepool match confirmed at BM

Well, perhaps Tezza can clarify what he meant. If he was joking about mental health issues I agree it's not funny and it's unnecessary. Well here is what he posted in this thread: Have to admit it is becoming more and more predictable, repetitive & Monotonous. Has to be in a lonely and sad place. P...

Re: John Tempest standing down

He will be a bigger miss to the club than Styche. Most fans have no idea about how to run a business or a football club and do not appreciate everything he has done for the club over recent (turbulent) times, from shovelling snow although never pulled his boots on to play! Thanks, JT and you will a...

Re: Sports Village (latest)

Odd how things have changed. There is no real benefit as I can see in having any kind of alliance with this propos...

Re: Gamble?

Let’s break it down. Say there was £100K in the budget for commercial revenue and we were forecasting only £50K so a £50K shortfall. The business then has to come up with a plan to either close that shortfall OR re-adjust other areas of the business to make up for that shortfall - reduce playing bu...

Re: Harvey Saunders

Unless we bring a striker in Saunders is not going to get us the goals to keep us in this league. Total agreement. Not "So Young" Harvey will never develop into a potent striker at this level or above. He is a headless chicken. Unless we are paying him £10 per week, extending his contract was being...

Re: Wilson Kneeshaw

I see he’s left Sacramento and now back in Darlo, worth another shot? Squandered several opportunities. My opinion is he does not have the physique to match the skill he has. Good luck to him. PS His brother Jackson was a promising golfer, however i heard he as laterly an extra on a reality tv show.

Re: Craig Stoddart interview with Martin Gray

MG Actions/Comments, immediately prior too, during and after his departure have probably put him on a par with RS as the likely least welcome people at any DFC gathering / discussion of any sort.

Indeed. Almost all Football Academies need to be connected to a football club in order to provide a succession route, probably BTec funding also.
