I don't think somehow Gramps would disagree with you that Reynolds is deluded.
Dont think anyone can argue he was. I recall him saying when darlington were in administration around 2009ish, may have been in the northern echo that some fans would love him back, i doubt it

Not saying hes a top bloke but theres been some comical quotes from him over the years which even the most die hard of darlington fans have found funny: “Rome wasn’t built in a day but dArlingtons already built” “Footballs easy, just send out the season tickets and away you go” “If i did not build t...

Re: Will Darlo go for the hybrid model?

Im guessing a few national league north and south teams operate a hybrid model if the manager and/or any of there coaching staff dont have full time jobs as well as working for the club. The young players and those that are students who can live on the part time wages offered by the club could easil...

Re: Democracy under threat.

Don’t understand the logic of going for no-deal. You’re still going to have to resolve key issues, such as the Northern Ireland border, customs and so on in any future trading deal with the EU. It’s misleading to pretend no-deal is a silver bullet. It merely kicks the can down the road and you stil...

What was the deal of getting your old name back btw? I gather that it was not granted right away but the FA then let you take it back. Still a touchy subject with some. Because some pillock decided we were a "new" club we had to change name. We served a 5 year punishment before they allowed us to h...

Alright pal whilst im sorry about bury i think it would have set a bad example if they were allowed back in the league especially with the same owner. The ground issue seems a mess.
