Non League Football 2018 - 19

Recommended Posts

Salford City not messing around, appointing Graham Alexander and signing up Nathan Pond, Danny Whitehead and Chris Neal. Those are good signings for the National League.

 

I'd be very surprised if they weren't in the mix for the title this season.

Given the money that's being thrown at them surely they'll have to be.

Hopefully Chesterfield come straight back up. I have faith Allen will deliver.

 

I didn't think Salford would do anything with those two managers who they've now got rid of but I rate Alexander and I think he's a great appointment at that level. With all the money they chuck around, you'd think Salford would be up there.

Seen them down the Boro last season, got to say they looked really impressive and very organised think they'll do fine in the national league, but will that change with a new manager?

Yeah spoke with a load of their fans who were on their way to Barnet the other week.

 

It's a big mess behind the scenes apparently.

Yeah they are. I work in Chesterfield and know a couple of fans who say they've been run really badly for years now. Unbelievable to think Cook guided them to League One play offs not so long back.

 

Sad to see them in non league.

Are the debts to do with that new stadium they build two or three years back.

Watching Bromley v Brackley in the Trophy final...Brackley have missed a hatful of sitters in the second half, Bromley 1-0 up from half time.

Finally scored via an own goal in the 95th minute!

You couldn’t have written the script for that...Have to feel for Bromley...23 seconds from victory and an og sends you to extra time...No more goals so into pen shoot out...ahead in that from the off as Brackley miss their first ..4 perfect pennos but then miss your 5th and 6th...great entertainment from both teams..renewed my faith in football after that crap served up by overpaid prima donnas yesterday

Should be really competitive the Central division but they will get on well. Northern league is for me the toughest at that step.

Delighted to see local (Grantham) lad Lee Shaw bag a 2 year contract at Chesterfield. He's a bit of a Vardy type, quick, plays on the shoulder, and has a great attitude. Was training with Lincoln City but apparently turned them down; Scunthorpe and Salford were linked with him last season, plus he was at Vardy's V9 academy recently. I think he'll get 15 - 20 goals next season.

Salford sign Adam Rooney from Aberdeen, if he's still got it he'll be a super signing for them.

Supposedly paying him £4k a week.

Money talks. Shows how far Scottish football has fallen when an English non league team can poach one of Aberdeens key players.

You could say about players leaving the EPL to play in Qatar....Money talks.

Love how the BBC etc paint the Salford story as a fairytale when they're backed by a millionaire from Singapore and a handful of the biggest dullards in football (apart from Gary Neville perhaps). Adam Rooney is a disgraceful signing at that level, it'll kill the league.
