Re: Chester Away All ticket

When Ainge signed I remember our fans positively salivating at the prospect of a Styche/Ainge strikeforce ripping our rivals to shreds. Everyone seemed to consider it a phenomenal signing. It was also reported that his previous injury problems were behind him. Very true. I don't think there were to...

Re: Gateshead - ineligible for playoffs

I sincerely doubt the council are doing it for fun. Council budgets have been slashed to shreds since 2010. Particularly the ones that have been deemed to have voted incorrectly. They simply don’t have the money. This country is in an abysmal state and it ain’t local councils to blame. Wake up. Fee...

Re: Chester Away All ticket

Well yes, there is a fix. The club should only give out 1 year contracts as standard, with two-year contracts only in exceptional circumstances where the player has both a good injury record and a history of sustained performances at this level (i.e. a Mark Beck). I'd imagine that the players deman...

Re: Chester Away All ticket

To be honest, one way we are going to be able to progress is taking chances on players. This includes players that probably wouldn’t be playing for us if they had a good medical history. Sometimes it will work out, sometimes it won’t. Jodi Jones has been a pretty good gamble in this regard for Nott...

So Asante is in the squad today, the premonition of him grabbing a brace in front of the jubilant Darlo fans is still on. Only there is nothing riding on it, thankfully.

I don't believe that is the case. My understanding is that DRFC don't want development that would require their clubhouse to be replaced. Which essentially means BM could be developed sufficiently to mean NL standards but not to EFL. *If* we could move the pipe then that gives the full footprint of...

Re: Once the dust settles...

I think what I find frustrating in some of the new stadium discussion is over suitability to play in the football league. It’s pie in the sky when we don’t even look to be in much danger of escaping the national league north (upwards), let alone the level above it! If you're going to build a brand ...

Next Saturday will be a good opportunity to give Asante a good 'run out', sorry I mean a good 'wander round the middle of the pitch' out I guess it would be dependent on whether he was contracted for next season or not. If his contract is up then there's literally no point. If his contract is for n...

Re: Well how did we do that?

Not me. Main is a better player in nearly every way IMO. His work rate, his thinking, the way he is determined to bundle his way through a defensive block, his team work ethic. Perhaps Hazel was better a placing a shot? But I can't remember. Don't get me wrong, I think Main has been amazing for us....
