Re: Well how did we do that?

That for me has been transformed by new additions, Main in particular. Would SW been able to do the same with Felix & Hazel? I personally don’t believe so. You don't believe that SW would have been able to do anything with Hazel , who scored 20 goals a season every season, and 21 goals in his first...

Re: Well how did we do that?

I doubt that very much due to your constant defending of Gowling and the fact that applicants such as Watson, Lakeland & Gray were interested in the job first time around. My defence of Gowling wasn’t about his overall performance as a manager which wasn’t good enough but the constant speculation a...

It's what happens when you appoint a proper manager. Credit to the Board for appointing Watson & Mitchell, but even bigger credit to them both for their work since January.

Re: Looks like they're staying...

If you take the starting 11 from Saturday, for me we want to be keeping as much of that team together as possible. Outside of that, Nelson is under contract but I’m not sure if there’s anyone else I’d be looking to be keep on.

Re: Looks like they're staying...

I’d add Rutledge to the list of players I’d be keen to keep hold of. He’s not the finished article but 6”4 centre forwards are not easy to come by and he’s got the talent to be form a very effective partnership alongside Main.

I agree with OG on this one. Mistakes were made and then put right. No point in wasting energy on Gowling and his horror show. Time to move on?

I thought away teams at this level were entitled to 20% of the capacity? It's only 20% in the FA Cup. Minimum is 10% in the EFL, don't know about the NLN.

Re: End of season awards

Tough one this year as I don’t think anyone has done really well all the way through the season. I’d go with Salkeld as he was probably one of the better players during the Gowling era and has really stepped up in the last couple of months with some important goals.

Re: Darlington V Chorley

It’s a decision of very small margins, the officials have to be completely sure the ball has crossed the line so it’s no surprise the goal wasn’t given. It does at all excuse the poor defending for all three of their goals. There’s no point over analysing things at this crucial stage, with other res...

Rivers is fine to bring on for 20 minutes if you have a lead and you just need someone to keep the ball but his influence when starting games is minimal.

Re: The Bottom Ten, Tuesday Mar 12th 2024

I think the clubs with the greater resources tend to prevail towards the end of the season when the fixtures pile up and therefore Kings Lynn, Southport and Darlington continue to pull away and Banbury & Rushall will drop.

Huge relief. Despite the dominance of possession it did feel like we were going to let a poor Buxton side get away with a scrappy 1-0 victory with a silly own goal.
