Re: Home Kit Vote

Gramps, I realise you're not trying to create an argument, just stimulate a bit of debate. With that it mind and I know you don't particularly like these, but hypothetical question. if there was an increase in sales of a non hooped shirt and that allowed us to bring in a new player, would sentiment ...

Re: Home Kit Vote

I don’t think it’s time to move on from hoops forever, but if home shirt sales are falling, then commercially it’s reasonable to have a break for one year. I actually like 3, but if we were going to do something different I would have gone with quarters which we have played in before, or maybe just ...

Re: Away to Bristol rovers

My biggest worry about this season and it showed again today is that quite frequently if we let a goal in, heads drop. It usually affects all teams, but it seems to affect us more. We were at least on a par with them until the first goal went in and then it went downhill from there. You could make a...

Re: Guiseley v Darlington

I understand the argument about McMahon and his experience, but I haven’t been impressed with the games he’s played so far. It has been a bit stop start for him and before this season he hasn’t had much football and I’m sure he’ll come good, remember Hunt looked rusty in his first couple of games, b...

Re: Darlington v Prescot Cables

Reasonable performance today in a match we dominated. Like another poster I thought Hunt got caught a bit when players ran at him, but I suspect that’s all down to rustiness. His composure and coolness on the ball though was something we missed last year. Very early days and all players need games t...

There you get one camera and no replays. Even that would have been excellent at our level, but what we got was a slick professional exp...

I’ve just looked at that statement again and there’s nothing about current season ticket holders. I wouldn’t be bringing any of these points up at all if we were 3-4 weeks away from the season starting, but were 7 days away.

Old Git you may well be right, but you haven’t given any evidence to back your posts up which is the point Gramps is making. From what I’ve seen he’s a decent shot stopper, but if you’re not one of those as a goalkeeper there’s little point in playing. The more important attributes that set you asid...

Re: Latest friendly

Out of interest which ofthe goals is his fault. The penalty is obviously a dive and the fourth is a mix up, so you can argue he could have done better, but it looks like he’s getting there before the ball is poked past him. He has no chance for goals two and three.

I see 30 MPs have signed a letter to the sports minister asking for fans to be allowed to attend non-league matches. I wonder if Mr Gibson was one of them.

As Middlesbrough will have to cap their capacity, I know two Boro non season ticket holding fans would go to the Arena so they can see some live football. I don’t think this would be unique to just Darlo either.

So other than a goalkeeper we need a mobile attacking midfielder, although and I suspect I’m in the minority here I’m a bit worried about cover for central defence. However, it’s much easier to get a central defender on loan then it is a forward. The other issue for me and its the same as last year ...

Re: Retention for next year

Wheatley is a defensive midfielder his job isn’t to score goals. That’s not to say he won’t chip in with 1-2, but his job is to sit in front of the back 4. Armstrong plays with a defensive midfielder, so unless he changes his style of play, where stuck with the useless lump of lard, who happens to b...

Just one game too many yesterday and with Chesters constant pressing we couldn’t get going. The only real criticism I would have was with AA putting Atkinson in. He never really went looking for the ball while Wheatley and Reid did, so didn’t give us much of an outlet. Didn’t really understand why H...

Very good win tonight. First 20 minutes is probably the poorest we’ve played for along time and it took us 15 minutes before we managed to string more than 2-3 passes together. How we managed to be 1-0 up I’ll never know. Watson had a shocking first 20 minutes and it was his mistake that led to the ...
