Re: Spennymoor Away

If I was being cynical I could suggest this was a deliberate plan to get Darlo into trouble. First you announce segregation info when it is too late for our officials to raise their concerns then you cram people into an area that clearly isn’t big enough, sit back, wait for the chaos to ensue and th...

Re: Interview with Johnston on Official Website

Don’t think we’ll need £6m initially, I reckon a third of that will build something that will be acceptable for National league with the scope to upgrade fairly easily from a logistics point of view for FL. Of course still plenty of issues raising that sum but it’s got to be a 5-10 year project. Mo...

Re: Interview with Johnston on Official Website

What bothers me about BM is what will happen when our current license runs out. If the rugby club have got their debts paid off by then they could easily refuse to extend it or worse offer an even worse deal than the one we have now knowing we have no other options. Much as I dislike the Arena it ma...

Re: Woolnough

DJ said on BT sport pre Walsall that the club would be debt free at the end of this financial year so I would assume this means all
personal loans will have been repaid, presumably from the cup money.

Re: Darlington V Telford

To me, second half, a lot of our players looked like they needed a rest. They seemed tired mentally as well as physically. The cup run seems to have taken a lot out of them and, while adrenalin will have helped keep them going in the cup, it’s not there in a league match. We desperately need more bo...

Re: Gates

I’m sure a while ago DJ said there would be no more money spent on BM until we get a much improved deal with the rugby club. Our current deal only has about 15 years left and I for one am not convinced the rugby club will extend it, especially if their debts have been cleared, which would leave us h...

Re: Flares /pyrotechnics

I notice on the official site that there will be bag searches at the turnstiles tomorrow night. Problem with that is that the flare throwers are unlikely to be carrying them in a bag, more likely in their coat pocket. Hopefully there is a plan to spot likely suspects and check any bulging pockets.

Someone said somewhere else that him and Holliday are on loan at Northallerton. Maybe we should recall them? Yes they are.

Re: O'Neill recalled

We definitely need another forward in for next Saturday because both Bascome and Donawa will be off on international duty. Either that or we try and convert someone else into a striker, Lainge maybe, it worked for Harrogate a few years ago with Ainge.

Re: Liam Connell - Boost the Budget

Since the start of the season we have lost Heaton and paid of Burn immediately after the cup win at Leamington so no prizes for guessing where that money came from. However Burns salary has now been freed up and could well cover both Hedley and Storey, or at least close to it. And we still have the ...

Re: Liam Connell - Boost the Budget

The problem with having a good fa cup run is that other clubs know how much money you have won and see an opportunity to get a share of it by asking inflated transfer fees. The sad thing in this case is that a player is being denied a chance he will probably never get again.

Jordan Watson’s on Sat. was his fifth but, according to AA in the Echo, he won’t be suspended this weekend but will miss the fa cup match the week after because suspensions are now competition specific. Surely, if this is the case, JW has 4 yellows for league matches and only 1 for the fa cup so unl...

Re: Gloucester V Darlington

If we can eventually get Atkinson and Liddle both fit plus a striker in on loan to give us a different option up front I think we will do ok. When O’Neil went off at half time we just weren’t the same team.
