After having two strong seasons and follow on promotions, I was looking forward to how they got on this season. So why are they struggling so much this season.

Apparently, it is a complete different side to each of the 2 previous seasons.

We played them at home, they moved the ball well, technically decent and bright. But very easily bullied and easy to score against IMO, which I am guessing has been the problem.

Its a completely new team. Alot of the players they had in the 1st and 2nd divisions are now playing Northern League football as they were all released. They've still got some decent footballers though.

They had 3 or 4 very good players on show against us on Saturday and were the better team. Good structure to their play, very fit and technically good. Issue was they were wide open at the back and on the odd occasion we strung two passes together we got at them and scored goals. Also lack of experience, every time they scored to get back into the game we seemed to score within a few minutes to take the game away from them again. I think a few wins and their confidence will build and can hurt teams.

I made a 2nd half sub appearance on Saturday mate. We had a few away together for the weekend which left us short of numbers so I played last 30. Felt good mate but will stick to managing and only play when needed.

I think Gateshead A are ready to offer a lot more to the Premier Division this season. We played them early on which I thought was a good time to play them as I'm in no doubt they'll start improving. They've already progressed in the cups including knocking 7 past Newbiggin, no mean feat by any imagination!

Yes, they're a young side but they're a credit to play against.

See the likes of Macauley Langstaff and JJ O'Donnell played on Saturday. clearly Steve Watson is going to use the 'reserves' team more than the last manager. Worth keeping an eye on.

Danny Burns and Tom White played in the game against us a couple of months back.
Whilst I'm certainly not complaining because it's a pleasure to watch such players play, I thought there was a league Rule about using contracted players...?
