Re: Kids In Tin Shed

This is a difficult one. I think the club does have a small amount of people who follow the club occasionally and love a bit of trouble, you only see them at high profile games normally. They probably react to losing slightly differently to the majority of us. When you throw in unsegregation then yo...

Re: Constructive views on the Blackwell experience

I would say the next fundraising push will be another 500 club offer. Add another 300 stand onto the existing. We would need 100 to take up the offer to pay for the extra 300. Lessons will be learnt and it is great to read some of the suggestions, most are small and I would assume we will be able to...

Re: 3 Darlington thugs to appear in court...

A couple of things - firstly pubs can't bar anyone, nor can DFC. There has to be a justification. Otherwise we end up in the situation we were in with George Reynolds, where he tried to censor anyone who criticised him. DFC can bar whoever they want for any reason they want. It is a private club an...

Re: Work has started !!!!!!!!

Hundreds of thousands of pounds Pete. That's how much Reynolds paid to divert it around the arena and he got his own guys in.
We are not talking a normal water pipe here, can I just be clear on that. It is never going to be moved.

Re: blackwell meadows work !!

Nah, can't have been poolies. They were working. :lol: Looked at the pitch whilst I was down there. Now it's been cut, it looks a lot less bumpy than with longer grass. But it also looks quite bare in parts. But it does look like they're reseeding it. Would someone please advise how you upload phot...

Re: Blackwell Meadows pipe solution?

Hi, no structure of any type can be built over the water pipe.

As for moving the pitch towards the town, I don't think that is possible either as I think there is a sewerage pipe that runs down that side which also cannot be built over.

I would have been a bit peeved if I did, I know they have Signs etc but I did spend over £100 there yesterday. Will revert back to tesco now though. I do find it iro...

Stadium Design Optimisation

One thing I've struggled to get my head around is why it will be so expensive to redirect the pipe. At most it will be 500m in length, through undeveloped grassland. You dig a ditch, add the pipe. Stop the flow. Connect it up (admittedly I anticipate that's the difficult part) and then open the pip...

Re: Stadium Design Optimisation

The pipeline goes straight through the middle of the open end, to the centre of the pitch and turns to go away from the pitch past the centre circle. Hence the half stand on the opposite side of the clubhouse. Couldn't be worse if I am honest but beggars can't be choosers.
