Re: Altrincham

DOGSO isn't a bad shout in the situation. He is really only 28 yards from goal and there isn't a defender to be seen. It's hard to know whether the Darlo player would be bearing down on goal or not as he is fouled so soon after taking his touch. I've just watched the full 6 minutes of the decision m...

Re: Small clubs in the north west

So personally I think it is harsh to throw "but you didn't mind celebrating promotion" at fans of clubs in these situations, and I think whether they celebrated or not is irrelevant to whether they can feel aggrieved now. I didn't want to assume that you were saying otherwise is all thus checking fi...

Re: Altrincham

The video is only evidence if you agree with your interpretation. And a lack of comment is not evidence.

Look people view thing differently for perspective the response I’ve had from group I’ve asked is 5-3 in favour of a red card.

Re: Altrincham

cool I agree with you then. Will remember for future that a decision is always correct if referee and assistant on the day both agree on a decision.

Re: Small clubs in the north west

Terrible analogy really wasn't it. Request for a beer is because you wanted to drink the beer as in there was actually an outcome you wanted from it.

So are you saying that the fans are not entitled to complain now because they should have been complaining last season.

Re: Altrincham

It's an opinion to be honest and a judgement. I see it as a reckless challenge, the referee on the day judged it as excessive force. It's all judgement which is why there are still decisions generating debate on MOTD as actually 'clear and obvious' isn't actually quite a rare thing to happen on a fo...

Re: Altrincham

Overturned depends on whether team appeals it but also focuses on whether it is absolutely the wrong decision conversely the review of footage is what they think is the right decision. It basically depends what an ex player and ex manager think ...

Re: Small clubs in the north west

Sole responsibility lies with the owners of each club. Bury fans weren’t complaining when they were spending big, living beyond their means and enjoying success. They weren’t but at the same time - so what if they did it wouldn’t really make a blind bit of difference to the outcome. It feels a bit ...

Spen is actually making a fair point for a change. Unless the FA / EFL made each company within the FA a subsidiary of it - or took a controlling share in each one (and made that the rules) they can’t really control who takes over... Zero chance of it actually happening so they are a little stuck tr...

Re: Small clubs in the north west

We were in the National League at the time not League One and we hadn’t been blocked from playing fixtures.

I think if is pretty obvious why Bury would get more attention.

Re: Small clubs in the north west

As for Bury, did they not overspend last season in their efforts to get promotion. They did but that is not really too dissimilar to what we did under Reynolds, Houghton or Singh we just failed to get promotion despite our overspend. I think Andy Holt at Accrington possible called out the issues at...

Remember the law on handball has completely changed this season - no idea about the scenarios you mention but if you effectively gain control of the ball in an attacking area from the ball touching your arm it’s a free kick. The only exception is where the ball ricochets off another part of your bod...

Re: The Areana

There is something in ground grading about there being capacity on different sides of the ground I think?

Aren’t we creeping towards recession at the moment as well (depends what growth is like in Q3) not sure what capacity there is left for hotels and restaurants in Darlington in current climate.

I think both are as uncertain as the other right now. So until one of them moves and a decision can be made it’s a pretty pointless debate. That is my point until the boxes start to move towards the arena we are in the right place for the current time. There could be an increase on match day commerc...

Re: Curzon Ashton v Darlo

I could be wrong, but I think Darlington Albion are now Darlington Town in the Wearside League (our old reserve side). So if they play on a Saturday, that removes the problem of anyone potentially playing for them on a Sunday. Are they not still playing on Sundays as well? Or have they given them up?

Re: The Areana

A big negative for the Arena is that it’s current owners won’t let us play there with a contract which could actually let us enter the league and they plan to put down 3G to maximise their revenues. so a) we won’t be able to play games and b) we will have the identical progression barriers that are ...
