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...

Re: Darlo TV

The coverage today was so much better then I was expecting. I think I was expecting something like you get on sky when they have multiple matches on the red button. 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...

Well DJ obviously saw my post yesterday morning and made it a priority to answer my 'flapping' questions as soon as he could. On a serious note that was a great interview answered the questions he could, but gave a level of reassurance and where the club was at, for the ones he couldn't. Only gripe ...

Gramps, I don't think the club are trying to hide anything and in my first post I did state I'm not trying to knock the club, but if it's come across like that, it wasn't meant to. Without trying to cause any sort of argument what unsubstantiated rumours am I creating? I'm in agreement people have t...

Re: Update Required?

So I get the points raised about the season starting. An update on the clubs thoughts would be nice, but understand they may not want to say too much at the moment. The playing side though I don't get. Would we all be happy if in the middle of a season we didn't hear anything on the playing side for...

I did ask what your thoughts were on the playing side, so no info on how the squad is getting on for two weeks is flapping. Interesting.

Re: Update Required?

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.

Fair enough, but maybe their thoughts on the situation would be possible.

The Arena looks favourite, but no one...

Although we know the club don't want to start the season without fans, what are their views following Thursday meeting with the National League. Do t...

Re: Latest friendly

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.

Re: Ground share

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.

Re: Maguire & Langstaff Released

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...

Re: Chester game....

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 ...

He just said ‘I know’. Same question to one of the subs warming up was the same answer, but he did say he’s...

Elliott certainly could do better for their first goal, but as you say the main culprits were Laing, Storey and Liddle. That doesn’t mean he should be dropped though, during this recent spell he’s been good and that’s coming from someone who didn’t rate him that highly before. Armstrong himself says...

I’m not Andys biggest fan, but I’ve seen him at two away matches since his ban and he’s been perfectly ok, he’s just supported the team. If he doesn’t have too much to drink he always is. I suspect he’s already learnt his lesson and will be careful in the future.

Hard fought win tonight. We missed a couple of chances before we scored. I’ve no idea how the goal was allowed because although their defenders head was slightly down, O’Neills foot was high and he kicked him in the nose which resulted in him being substituted. Bit of luck for once for us, but I wou...
