Re: Hartlepool fancy dress last home game

In addition to the club's newly introduced policy on swords (must be a first, that one!), perhaps we should play some music to welcome the Hartlepool supporters. Tenpole Tudor's Swords of a Thousand Men, perhaps? Or the Moody Blues' Knights in White Satin (showing my age there!)? Arabian Knights fr...

Jason Taylor should have started in midfield. 400 home fans lost in a week shows what we are battling against
What changed?

Re: BARROW V Boreham wood match thread

Think Nozzer should be renamed Billy Whizz. He's like lightening with a heart like a lion. Pity he's not one of ours. Never seen him have a bad game...my MOM by a country mile. Barrow are a little nieve. I don't say cheat, but I do say is to fall over and make the referees make a decision. One thing...

Re: Promotions and marketing

It's ok giving free entry... it's the retention of the extras that's needed. So guess 500+ extra today... was that the freebies, or was it from those paying fans? What age groups were better represented ? Just because of a higher gate, it may not have made the club more revenue . Did food outlets s...

Re: Promotions and marketing

Sorry if this is adding to countless other attendance threads but I was wondering what people’s views are on what the club should do next to promote games. I think we have shown this season with the promotion today (1900+), Salford (2,500) and the game the trust promoted that there is potential on ...

Rhys Norrington Davies is unreal; I thought Nick Anderton was as good a full back as we’d get at this level but this lads is another class above
Just a pity he is a Sheffield Utd player

Re: Barrow v Harrogate Town

Felt more like a loss than a draw walking out of the ground, but all things considered not too bad, apart from two errors from Taylor, compounded by Jameson for the corner leading to the second goal. I like Taylor, but errors in defence lead to goals. His lack of pace shows up in defence too. 10/10...

Re: Barrow v Harrogate Town

Very frustrating, every time we get a big crowd in (was genuinely shocked when that figure was announced) we just manage to somehow mess it up. Dominated for 80 minutes against a play off chasing team and undone by two shocking bits of defending, first half especially we were excellent. Evatt must ...

But it's not bringing in the crowds. It's OK U16 go free this week.... but will it make them come back for the remaining home games?

Re: Dan Jones

Great for Dan, but I always think these games are a bit pointless. Hope he doesn't get injured as we will have a big hole in our defence Saturday Try telling Dan Jones and the rest of the players called up its pointless :roll: If he gets injured he gets injured that's football and we'll just get on...
