Re: Burn Gone

I'm not taking Super Les' comments as Gospel. I used them to highlight that other seemingly connected people did not believe Burn had been difficult. Who's right? I don't know. You don't know. He may have been, he may not. I only said I wasn't going to castigate him for stealing a wage on that evide...

Re: Burn Gone

Alun Armstrong in pre-season: “All the lads have been great, apart from one or two from last season.” See the Northern Echo.

Re: Burn Gone

If Whickham are paying him the same as he was on here, then the world has definitely gone mad. Having said that, who wouldn't take a lump sum payment if they could then get a job on the same money immediately afterwards? It's his last payday, he'll never move up again, and will likely not last long ...

Re: Burn Gone

You’ve answered your own question. We’re paying his wages, so it’s not unreasonable for the very least fans to want is for him to give his all for the club. As far as I’m aware, we’re not paying money to the 90,000 residents of Darlington, hence why he should feel more for the club. And there were ...

Re: Burn Gone

The reason he didn't play is the two managers he has had at Darlo didn't fancy him. He had a two year contract so had every right to stick around and be paid each week. He turned up for training when required by all accounts and done as requested, he just didn't convince either manager to play him....

Re: Burn Gone

Styche was mobile, ran the channels, had a trick or two, liked to run at defenders. Ainge could head a ball. Not similar at all.

Re: Burn Gone

It's really sad that the signing of a Darlington lad should have turned into this awful saga. Whatever the rights and wrongs, thank God it has finally been brought to an end. We should not be offering 2 year contracts to anybody, ok Galbraith and Thommo are exceptions but this has been worse than t...

Re: New signing

You already seem to have clarity though. Not everyone is in the same boat. I'm not worried about turning down a move elsewhere - not every move is right for someone. I'm interested in whether he is making himself unpickable, as you are suggesting, or is merely not being picked. There's a difference.

Re: New signing

Yep. Burn could really want to play but we want him off the wage bill and are forcing him out effectively. That he hasn’t found anywhere else is perhaps unfortunate but I wouldn’t expect him to quit otherwise. Nobody knows the reason and the reason I reference the Richards article is that it’s not ...

Re: New signing

No-one asked for a statement from the board. However, do you know for a fact that it is Burn's unwillingness to play that is behind his omission or is it an attempt to get him to leave early.

Re: New signing

At the moment, by not saying anything, the inference being taken is that Burn is an unfit, uninterested parasite, stealing a wage doing very little. Perhaps the silence speaks a thousand words. As an owner, perhaps it's not unreasonable to know why one of your most expensive assets is sitting idle w...

Re: New signing

I’d recommend listening to his interview on the website. He sounds immensely frustrated, understandably so. Some have been quick to criticise because of our slow start, but the effect of the injuries must be considered because it’s clearly having a big impact. He also says he’s 70-80% there with th...

Re: Josh Heaton

For me, we don't use his pace enough. He makes any number of runs across the backlines, where a through ball would put him clear, only for our midfielders to choose the ball out to the wing instead.

Re: Josh Heaton

We cant afford not to have the money from a cup run, a good run would give AA budget to play with. Without that he will have to run with what we have. A must win game really, I would not take the chance by leaving first teamers out unless they are carrying knocks already. We can't afford to get rel...

We're not that Blyth team though. Just because it happened once for Armstrong doesn't make it a certainty it's going to happen again. And we don't have a Maguire.

I fear the answer may be to risk a scratch team in the fa Cup and try to get some players fit over the next two weeks. Absolutely not. The league season is over as far as play-offs are concerned, and I'm not too worried about relegation (at the moment). What we desperately need is an influx of cash...

Re: Josh Heaton

Perhaps AA could clarify whether Burn has shown any interest or not in getting fit and playing. At least then we'd know whether all these comments are based on some evidence, or just baseless slagging. Always had a mistake in him when he played last season, but then, so have all those who've played ...
