Re: Weather for the weekend.

Looks like there is going to be very cold weather on Friday evening. Hope they get the covers on the pitch in good time or the game must be under threat. I'll just re-phrase that one for you Pete. "Hope we have sufficient volunteers available to get the covers on the pitch in good time or the game ...

Re: BT Sport coverage Darlo vs. Walsall

Thought they said it just about right all night. Virgo is of course long term none league so he knows what he is talking about. The 1 thing I would query, and it has been said on here as well, was that we ran out of legs towards the end. I thought we more ran out of idea's when we got 30 yards out....

Re: Will Darlo go for the hybrid model?

The way forward is for the club to eventually go full-time & a stepping stone to that end, will be perhaps to a half way house, that a hybrid model could deliver. We are a million miles from being full time, and blabbing on about how becoming a hybrid would be a half way house - well yeah Captain O...

Hope someone puts the covers on tonight. Forecast for heavy frost.
So who might that "someone" be? Maybe it's the "They" that Darlo_Pete referred to the other day. Maybe "they" have noticed that min temp tomorrow night is forecasted to be +2C and rising to +5C on Wednesday.

Re: 2nd Round

Let's beat Walsall first. They will not be so easy to shock this time and we will not have a full squad to pick from. Oxford United are in better fettle than Walsall. As we will be on BT Sport for replay, cannot see too many of their fans making the trip. Fans need to be aware that tickets are limi...

No it means the FIFA does not permit the deal to happen outside of the transfer window
Or could he not be signed on dual registration like Alex Storey is?
'Dual registration' only applies to non-contracted players.

Re: Ground Development Fund - Bucket Collections.

As stated previously when I mentioned it to the stewardess towards the end of last season she had been unaware of the problem and nobody had informed our SLO. They obviously tried to fix it during the summer which makes me think it might be mechanical so would be best stopping it if so.

Re: Farsley V Darlington Match Thread

Never seen grass so long. But guess you prepare a pitch to how you play and we did not adapt to the ball from defence holding up quick enough. Grass length only matched by Lancaster a couple of seasons ago in the FA Cup. Again, had a significant effect on the outcome. But I don't remember us defend...

Re: Teesside International Airport teams up with Darlington FC

Quite a lot of people mentioned it to the volunteers but nobody had informed the SLO so I checked with the stewardess towards the end of the season. It was the first she knew of it as the rugby club do not use the stand. At present there is no SLO in place but that should be the person to inform abo...

Looking at tweets from DFC & DFCSG they have had a good response to the appeal for volunteers although it would be nice to see some younger ones (nearer 60 rather than 70 or 80) especially to push onwards & upwards.

I know we nearly always fail in cup competitions and any money would be welcome, but is it only me that thinks it is strange for the FA to reward failure? Thing is Pete, in the qualifying rounds it is very feasible for a home team team to lose money from staging an FA Cup or Trophy match. Maybe not...
