The B-Ark / Re: v Kettering
« on: December 06, 2021, 09:39:18 PM »
The (fair) match report on Kettering's website claims we had four loanees from Sheffield United. I make it two, one of whom never got on the pitch. Have I missed something?

I believe Kettering had at least one player on loan from Sheffield United as well. Could four be a combined total across both teams?

  OXO, pleased you had a good away trip yesterday, did Liam"s dad say where he is playing now?  I know that he left Dunstan UTS last season and wonder if he"s still playing?.  Incidentally, just watched Sheffield FC v Dunstan highlights from yesterday - Marc Newsham scored a peach of a winning goal for home side in 85th. He"s captain there and still doing what he does best !

Liam now lives and works in Dubai.

It's a shame the draw doesn't get more media coverage than it does. As far as I can tell its only available via the FA website and then via club social media accounts. Surely there's enough interest from clubs, officials and fans to warrant maybe a 30 minute slot on a station such as Talk Sport? It would also make the whole thing a lot more transparent in terms of how it is actually carried out.

At what stage does the media start to cover the draw?

Herve Pepe Ngoma,  who sustained a bad injury whilst playing for Boston and hasn't played since, has now resumed his playing career after a five year gap - joining Coalville Town. Kalern Thomas and Courtney Wildin also play for Coalville, and Danny Davidson is the assistant manager.

Fortunately it'll be T-shirt weather on Saturday. The biggest problem with narrow turnstiles may come later into the season if we get a midweek game in the winter months and we're all trying to get through the turnstiles with six layers of clothing on.

Re: Car parking, how quickly do we think the traffic will clear after a game compared with York Street? (Hoping it won't be as bad as places like Chester, Darlington, Wycombe and Rushden, where I've sat in queues after games for far too long sometimes). Wasn't there talk at one time about laying on buses from the centre of town (which might help with the traffic congestion) , is that still being considered or are public transport options completely now ruled out through COVID?

Fitzsimons has been released by Stockport.

If the Darlington result had stood we would already be top of the league on points per game. If the season does end early again and potential positions and promotions decided on PPG and this decision swings the balance against us, then surely we'd have a valid grievance case against the league?

That was without doubt the best performance of the season so far.

It was a very good performance. But if push came to shove, I think the 4-0 win v Leamington in the first league game of the season just pipped it. I think Leamington are a better side than Farsley,, certainly more established at this level and a side we've often struggled to get positive results against in the past. And to beat them 4-0 at a time when our squad was only just coming together set down a marker for the season. But that's not to take anything away from today's performance.

Surprised there are still a number of either/or ties in the draw given that ties are now settled after one game and straight to penalties. Were all those matches Covid postponements?

Saw Chesterfield earlier in the season on BT Sport vs Stockport and on the day they were awful and we'd have nothing to fear. They've changed managers since though,, so will be an entirely different proposition.

Thanks Lee. At moment I'm getting 44Mbps, which I don't think is too bad, but obviously didn't test my speed during the game as I was trying to watch it. I've been working from home during Covid and there is a huge downturn in the performance of the works IT network at peak, times of day compared to out of hours, so I think my Internet performance is a bit variable.

I hadn't realised there was a cog to reduce the screen quality (only able to watch on a small tablet screen), but will try that next match. I don't think it's an issue with being too far away from the router as I can watch programmes on BBC iplayer, etc, on the same device in the same seat without any performance issues.
