I used to like him for his last ditch tackles a bit like Kev Smith, but rarely gave away penalties.

Re: Season VOIDED

the Arena wasn’t all negative! We are drifting off topic here but we had a little spell at the start of The Arena where we would sit next to Matt Clarke's dad. When Matt scored the first Darlo goal ever and ran into the empty corner where no fans were at all, he stood up and shouted something like ...

Re: Coronavirus.

24 cases now in the Darlington area, which makes us the 7th lowest local authority area in England. Is that 7th lowest per head of population? If not probably doesn’t mean that much as I would think Darlington is one of the least populated local authorities and you would expect it to be a low figur...

Re: Season VOIDED

The longer this lockdown goes on, then the less likely the FA decision will b overturned. Whatever the final decision is made will upset clubs & there fans in equal measure. Damned if you do & damned if you don't.

Ed get off Boris's back, he's doing a great job in a very trying situation.

Went shopping in town today & it was good to see that there was plenty of stock in a couple of supermarkets I visited. Hopefully people will stop panic buying, but somehow I doubt it.

Re: Coronavirus Blacklist

I'd like to nominate the rest of my village apart from my neighbour, as we were the only 3 people applauding in the whole village. We plan to get out the pans tomorrow & make a heck more of a racket. :thumbdown:

Hopefully Darlo residents showed more thanks than my village did?

No derby with South Shields next season then.
But derbies with Blyth & York, which is great. I'd imagine Kings Lynn will feel gutted, especially as there owner is likely too turn off the financial taps.

Re: Rugby League

Given the postponement of sport worldwide, I'd think it's almost certain that the weekend will be cancelled. Especially if football makes a comeback. Did anybody buy there tickets in advance, I guess you'll get a refund?

Re: Our banana munching "friends"

I'm sure many clubs will be using the pandemic as a reason for getting players to take wage cuts & laying off non-playing staff. I don't think a 20% pay cut is too bad, it could have been far worse for their players.

I agree it doesn't reflect how many cases are in Darlington, but I'd much rather have figures of 3 rather than Hampshire that has over 200 confirmed virus cases.

Re: The moment we've all been waiting for...

I listened to the game on DFR & when Farsley scored there was almost complete silence, so hard to believe that 50 away fans wouldn't make some sort of celebration noise that could be picked up on the radio.

People have long memories, when this crisis comes to an end, people will boycott these people that are trying to profit from people's misfortunes & any profits they have made from this crisis will soon be wiped out.
