Current Form in the National League.

What would regionalising the non league scene benefit us. more money should be trickling down from above. Clubs should be obviously sensible also . You're last point is the most pertinent; there is no God-given right to 'more money tricking down' and whatever league United are in they will be at on...

Current Form in the National League.

The manner in which part-time' football has evolved is that it is now more akin to the continental model than the old English style where 'hobby footballers' could interject with former professionals on the way down to come together in the evenings and form a fit for purpose part-time club playing a...

Current Form in the National League.

When this structure was first set up it was called the Alliance Premier League from 1979 until 1986. Between 1986 and 2015, the league was known as the Football Conference. Most of the National League clubs are now fully professional as opposed to the wholly part-time ideals of the original concept...

Web Site

I can't see maximising the website for marketing what the club has to sell as anything worth hammering them for......it's what the ruddy thing's for isn't it?

Current Form in the National League.

There is an epidemic of financial difficulty going on at this level of football at the moment, and the most likely body to be effect an arrestment of this trend is the National League itself. In the meantime, Dagenham & Redbridge, it would appear, needs considerable financial restructuring because r...

Current Form in the National League.

I've always said I don't want to rely and would take no happiness from surviving through another clubs hardship. I wouldn't choose it that way and wouldn't celebrate it either. As the on-line football magazine twohundred percent told us recently; First of all, we have to get through the question of...

Agree with merse that to a extent the club's should make themselves solvent to ensure this doesn't matter. It's not only Hartlepool; Dagenham have overspent on a £1.3 million budget in 12 months which equates to over £100,000.00 a month! * Someone has to be accountable for this massive balls up. Th...

I don't want to escape relegation at the expense of Pools misfortune- we all know how it feels to be in their predicament. I'd take that any day! I'm sorry but running your club efficiently off the field is every bit as important as organising it on the field properly and getting results ~ somethin...

Nicho kept us up in very trying circumstances whilst driving the bus and visiting hospitals.
I'd rather have a manager who drives to Stockport to prepare for the opposition thankyou ~ no points to be gained in Torbay Hospital!

Now I am getting a bit fed up with you going on about the previous manager. Get over it Merse for f***s sake Were you there? The differing management style was all important yesterday......

Maidenhead v Torquayunited 10/2/18

Merse, you conveniently forgot to mention Young. He's hit a rich vein of form and it's no coincidence we're getting results on the back of it 😉 Young had a good game today and moved the ball on simply, quickly and effectively. As the surface deteriorated his task became harder but he stuck to it. N...

Maidenhead v Torquayunited 10/2/18

I thought today was a triumph for keeping one's head and not changing a side that had been on top for most of the game and keeping faith with Williams and Romain who's movement off the ball and endeavour on it creating chances for those moving up behind them such as when Barnes hit his marvellous go...
