Re: Once the dust settles...

I am not sure that even close to a majority of clubs are 'properly going for a play off place'...wouldn't suggest it is the norm by any stretch. I disagree. I reckon 50% of clubs properly go for a playoff place. We are basically at the end of the season and ten clubs are in with a shout of a play o...

Player of the season - Kallum Griffiths
Best young player of the season (u23) - Matty Young
Best signing - Cedric Main
Most improved - Kallum Griffiths
Mr consistent - Tom Platt
Bet Kallum Grffiths never thought he'd be most improved at 35.

Re: Asante Starts

Agree Loan Star. Haven't seen anything to suggest the guy is "swinging the lead" or doesn't want to get fit. Blaming his presence for almost taking us down is also complete rubbish.

Re: Any new faces

Scott Barrow was signed by Steve Watson. Josh gowling signs old crocks like Asante. That was my point. Gowling signed a crock in Asante. Watson signed a crock in Barrow. Very little difference in the last 12 months for the pair of them, but you can't say Asante was typical of the type of player Gow...

Re: Blood on hands/heads must roll

Sorry, are we saying we have a GK coach who doesn't actually attend training sessions and just turns up to games when Newcastle aren't playing (presume the suggestion here is he's a Newcastle fan and is watching them play, rather than working?).

If people have to hark back to that era, then I think Atkinson has proved himself more suitable with what he's done with Aycliffe with, I would assume, a limited budget.
