One level in the pyramid often does make a difference between scoring and not scoring and the jump between the Evostik and NLN is quite large.

As for the "system that suits his abilities" I'm sick of hearing that one from all of his sycophants. He wasn't scoring when Beck was the focal point and his job would have been to get onto his knock downs, and he hasn't been scoring since we've tried playing a more passing game. So which system does suit his abilities then?

No, it's not the system, it's just he's less effective at this level against better defenders - no shame in that, it is what it is. Every player has their level.
And I'm sick of this binary world we live in where everything is either fantastic or useless.
I'm open minded about Cartman, if he goes he goes, and if he stays I hope he is more successful. His effort at least warrants that.

If Nathan does leave he has 2 promotions on his CV and regardless of the goals drying up in what is a really tough league, he can look back on his time here with a lot of satisfaction.Looking at the bigger picture, it probably frees up a hefty wage and gives Harvey a big opportunity to progress under Tommy.Really wish Carts all the best whoever he goes to.

Anyone know if Styche still gets a regular call up for Gibraltar?

Not much of an issue now World Cup Quals are over, but could be something to bear in mind going forward.

No apparently he's only played for Gibraltar once, had some sort of disagreement with the manager and hasn't been picked since. I'm sure if he starts banging in the goals for us, they'll find it hard not to pick him for future internationals.

With those sorts of distances and dedication he almost qualifies to be a supporter!
With all that travelling he's probably entitled to call opposition players paedo's and throw around some sexist abuse at women!

We will be playing at the arena again next season - fact.

Quakerz - if you actually attended games and spoke to people you might actually find our facts, rather than spreading s*** on this board.

He was signed on at Gateshead not so long ago, think up to last season. Maybe he still has a place locally?

Liam Marrs used to travel from Cramlington to Boston each week for training and matches, and Boston hardly's pay out top wages either. That's c200 miles.

Mr Singh said this " I'm not expecting to get back any of the money I've already put in, I'm prepared to write it off for the future of the club. I'm not hanging in to make any kind of financial gain in the short or long term - if someone was prepared to come in and take the club off my hands, I'd be more than willing to discuss it"
