Boston Away

Lets have a Boston thread. Well I'd say our toughest game for a while, apparently York were well beaten after finding some form against Chester. However, it's often said that Darlo rise to occasions like this and the performance at Kidderminster was encouraging. The brilliant away support should hel...

The Darlo Varieties

I've noticed a few references to the teams tendency to hit a bad patch after going well for a longer period. This has been attributed to a quirk of Alan Armstrongs management as it seemed to happen when he was at Blyth. There will be a few factors involved but Saturdays performance was like the poor...

Re: Jason Kennedy

Wouldn't we be better off finding a younger player who plays now like Jason did then ? It rarely goes well for 'second spells' especially after this length of time - I can only think of Lance Robson who really managed the trick. Also, the players we have are good enough.

Re: Guiseley

:thumbup: All bets are off now. Digging out a result at Guisley in mid-week in January is promotion form. There's a brilliant vibe at the club and I think we can do it higher up.on the evidence of those cup.games. The fans who are diaryng the play offs know the score.

I think the above post puts things into perspective but I think we should go for it and finish as well as we can in preparation for next season If that turns out to be in a higher division we can give it a go - as long as we keep AA and co. My caution is based on painful experiences of relegation bu...

Re: Darlington V Alfreton

The playoffs are very much on. They barely laid a glove on us in the second half and we seem to have good reliable options all over as in the successful switch of Reid to defence. We deserve better crowds... National League here we come :D It's wonderful to see the team playing so well - better tha...

This is the stage for Thommo to smash home his 100th goal. May be useful if he could grab a hat-trick and Reid score his debut goal as well😁
Yes he deserves this and a big crowd to applaud him. Even though he's played at a lower Stephen would be a contender for my 'best of' post 1990 team. :idea:

It may not have been good enough in the last game and a half but there's nothing simple about it, as others have pointed out with issues like injuries and options in attack.

Noticed O'Neill went on after 70 minutes at Leeds but there was nothing of note in the report.

Re: Solihull Moors Away - FA Trophy 1st Rnd

Their message board had an unkind remark about going bust and big stadiums but as we know that kind of thing can happen to the best of clubs.
Even an over-inflated heavy metal team like Soilyhull - I hope we give them a lesson in kicking a football. Also, are they up to Walsall's level?

Re: The Squad for Brackley and FA Cup

Armstrong has had bad luck this season but it hasn't stopped him revitalizing the club. I haven't known a manager at Quakers so good at getting the team to play for a long time. Mark Cooper in the cup might have been the last one. AA is so good he's stopped me pining for you know who.

As Roy Hodgson might say - we also played Wiverpool in our roaring twenties heyday. Applauded off by an appreciative Kop after a gallant 1-0 defeat in the cup. Also we should allow Wednesday after that 40 yard winner in the league cup. Before the league cup lost its lustre.
