Is it something Carlisle do often going for the blue shorts as well? From the back it appears to have the look of a Chelsea kit from the mid-90s. Seems going for the simplistic design like Vale have which am all in favour of personally.
If away fans are going to be allowed then I wouldn’t mind that. Reckon we would easily sell 3000 and could see Walsall selling out also to give DC the heroes welcome he deserves ;)
Other than that get one of the long journeys out the way early like Crawley.
Also as they are doing the League...
India all out. NZ need 139 to win. Fantastic performance with the ball especially Jamieson and Southee.
Just hope Latham and Conway can get away to a good start and think NZ have got this fingers crossed.
To be honest that was my biggest concern if we were just going to raid Walsall this summer. Thankfully apart from I believe we did speak to Josh Gordon but seemingly he wanted more than DC valued him at we’ve left alone on that.
Covolan confirmed on a two year deal. Don’t know much about him...
Finally get to see Carlos Saleiro come back and take the English league by storm like Norm promised us.
In reality it’ll be Covolan. If Ryan Johnson comes too at least we’d know we’d have a defence good enough to make the Conference playoff final.
Really depends though on what they’re going to be doing I suppose. If it’s just stuff like bleep tests etc I doubt that would be too onerous as with it being their paid profession would imagine most would be trying to keep some level of fitness even if they had a break.
Aye am inclined to agree, think that win predictor thing has draw a big favourite also. Just looking at the runrate throughout the test I think anything over 3 per over on a chase is going to be very tough.
Just from the outside looking in this seems like it’s going to be one hell of a job for Hartlepool in terms of the turnaround to next season. Vale are returning for pre-season training this week by comparison so that’s a lot of stuff to get through including the retained list and recruitment.
We had him on loan about 4 years ago. He’s a left sided utility player. Can’t speak to how he has played in recent times but he was a good option as a squad player back then. Just unfortunate he played for us at a time things were starting to melt down behind the scenes.
Yeah looks nicely spread out there. In all honesty for ourselves and Walsall for that matter it makes no odds with us being the midlands everywhere is relatively comfortable to get to.
Think the game will be most looking forward to is the DC Derby with Walsall. Could be a little bit of needle...
Surprised to see Angol is only 26, seems like he’s been around a lot longer to be honest. Suppose with signings like that it all depends what sort of role is planned for them and never know it could pay off. Mullin at Cambridge was pretty much no better than average until last season and Adams...
Good move for Bradford that. Surprised at Hornby not looking for an opportunity at a club he could be #1 as he is certainly good enough for that. Wouldn't have been completely against him coming here and at least competing for our spot.
I think the whole thing about historical colours is a bit irrelevant to me any way. It's hardly the first time we've gone all white and anyone remember the 91-92 kit where we went silver and black for example? If really want to get into the historical side of things we once wore red and white...
I’d have thought they’d more likely get Sunderland (who for some godforsaken reason actually take this cup seriously) and Newcastle U23’s.
Was once a decent distraction but now frankly I’d rather we throw every game and get knocked out straight away. We’ve picked a few injuries to key players...
Vale are back in for pre-season training from Wednesday so am hoping might see a bit of movement in terms of signings in the next couple of days. Not the end of the world if we don’t as it seems relatively early to start training but the longer the squad have together the better.
