Yes I also thought Whitey was a class act for us but years do take their toll however, I will be at Harrogate tomorrow with a lot more enthusiasm now we have a player who will be a threat at set pieces and the return of Danny Sleath who was not my favouite player but who was our outstanding pre season performer, add Wilko and I think our season starts here.
Come on everyone, although I have been critical lets all get behind the lads.

Nothing surprises me with these two, they have no contacts, its all about giving a few mates a game, this just confirms what I've been saying all summer.
You could (and probably did) say the same about Scott & Hurst when they signed all their old Ilkeston players.  That didn't turn out too badly.  I know they were younger but it's the same principle - you trust people that you know.

Doesn't it say something great about this club that so many players are willing to come back (even those from the McFraud era)?  Players like the club and a lot of that is down to the fantastic support.  Let's continue that support - for the 90 minutes of each match, please leave the negativity at home

Look on the plus side. Getting all these old players saves a fortune on transport costs as they all use there bus passes hence free travel to away games

If young Fairclough gets a bollocking from the back four he will be straight on to childline.

Probably my favourite Pilgrim during our League stint, a good solid character who was absolute class and who I'm told stood for no shit from McFraud hence his exit from the club after a well deserved Player of the Year accolade......

Last season he and the rest of the Blyth back 4 were undressed, spanked 5 times and sent back north in a brutal mauling.......he's 35 ffs, Austin is 38, Bazza is the same (ish)......what next? Cookie getting the No 9 shirt? Jim Kabia called up for a run?

Nothing surprises me with these two, they have no contacts, its all about giving a few mates a game, this just confirms what I've been saying all summer.

Good luck Whitey, you'll always be a legend to me but please let my last memories of you be the commanding presence in League 2, not another has been in these two clowns shambolic attempt at Football Club management.

Not sure where you're coming from there....... ???

If Austin and White are paired at Harrogate it could be a nine goal match again  ,  with the goals more evenly devided.

What a highly accurate prediction!

Yes. Naughtyforties et al. . . 3 games and 3 clean sheets. Coincidence ?

For the last three games Tom Ward has also started - so the clean sheets might be down to the pair of them rather than just one.  8)

Good point Ken.  Did I miss the thread slagging off Tom before he played a game?

Just a decent forward to make us play off contenders!

In Newsh I trust, until I see any reason to change my mind.
So many people have come and gone, their faces fade as the years go by.
Yet I still recall as I wander on, as clear as the sun in the summer sky.
