Re: Ollie Dyson

Dior, I think is more questionable - fast yes; but not a footballer ; Dior and Kay ( who I think is a footballer ) miss too many chances. We won’t progress unless we start sticking it in the back of the net . Stupid comment, the lads clearly running low on confidence in front of goal. Just needs to...

Re: Lack of ball boys and girls ?

That is very true Adam. There is really nowhere to hide between the touchlines and the walls. A potentially bigger potential problem might also would be the responsibilities of a ball boy/girl chasing balls that left the ground also - a quite common occurrence at HS. Takes me back to the early 70s w...

Re: BARROW V Yeovil match thread

Regarding the crowds, very honest interview here from Boreham Woods chairman about their low attendances...... https://fanbanter.co.uk/boreham-wood-concerned-by-their-low-attendances/ Wow. Sounds like the poor Chairman is bordering on the suicidal. Looking at the list of improvements recently made ...

Re: Lack of ball boys and girls ?

Surely if parents were asked to sign a form stating that they agree the club will take no responsibility should a ball land on their son/daughter/child in the cares face then that would be enough to take any liability away from the club? I'm not sure that signing a form would make much difference l...

Re: BARROW V Yeovil match thread

Jason Taylor won more headers/duals than both our CH have in the first 3 games. I wasnt a fan of him being put there but his experience was evident yesterday. Quigley is getting better with each game and i like the look of Dyson Sometimes forget that Taylor isn't a centre-half. He shows a lot of th...

Re: BARROW V Yeovil match thread

What was the attendance? 1218 with 70 odd from Yeovil. Good effort from them and [SwearFilter] poor from us. We can't keep making excuses ( like holidays etc ) anymore. This will be roughly our average 1200/1300. Some very low gates in the NL yesterday. Apart from the usual 400 at Bhamwood there wa...

Re: Barrow AFC v Eastleigh FC

It's true – and very obvious to anyone who saw him play – that Cowps lacked any sort of pace. When it came to running he was slow. His right foot was weak and he couldn't even flick marmalade with it. In the air, it was too often the case that when the ball was played long upfield to him he would m...

Re: Barrow AFC v Eastleigh FC

Did one of you slip into the Eastleigh dressing room and slip a few pills into their keeper's Bovril? He can come back any time he likes. The result today was far more important than just about anything, including the embarrassing turnout. I wonder how many of them will come back when their faces wi...

Re: Music over PA

Yes, the music's not for me either. "Glad All Over" has too much of a premature celebratory feel to it for my liking. I never feel particularly glad all over when we are just the one goal up, and it was more like Shakin' All Over as we were coming under the cosh in the later stages and the nerves w...

Re: Prediction for the season

Predictions are exactly what it says on the tin! Some will be more pessimistic than others and some will be overly optimistic. All I know is we have come such a long way together in such a short length of time and if we continue to work together both financially and structurally then it can only be...

Re: Prediction for the season

Mark that was a very boring and long post that I didn't get to end of!! :sentoff: :D Truth is no-one has a clue right now. Pre season means bugger all. We look better and more together off the field than we have done for years but that counts for nothing on it. Our August fixture list is tough on p...

Re: Prediction for the season

No one outside the Barrow camp believes we will be anywhere near the play offs. Absolutely no one. Tipsters, bookies, sticking with the usuals. The Wrexham Red Passion website today quoted an online tipster/blogger as suggesting Wrexham will win the NL this season. I've looked at the blog which run...

Re: Barrow v Sheffield United U23s

Impressive performance. No weak links at all, and some excellent football played. Difficult to know how good or not the opposition were, but when they had the ball the closing down from Barrow was noticeable, and they never settled on the ball. 3-1 a proper reflection on how well Barrow played. Sta...

In case anyone missed Evatt's interview, he is not entirely happy with some of his squad. From the NWEM: Evatt said: "I'm not unhappy because all it's doing is making my job a little bit easier. At the minute, I have a clear idea what our starting XI will be come Wrexham. "They can take that as the...

Re: Lancaster City Fc (A) preseason

Really hope we don’t need to use Eldson much this season +2 looks awkward, gets caught out of position and gives dangerous free kicks away. +3. Looks at odds with the bulk of the squad as if he doesn't really fit. Has had injuries and not a lot of first team time (until pre-season) but increasingly...
