Re: Darlington V Buxton

If we play, obviously could go either way, but surprised that Buxton are slight favourites after Saturday and we being at home.

Re: Prescot Cables

That picture was on the front of our programme for ages. I once saw the original photo and wondered why we had it on a Darlo programme when the shot was nothing to do with us

Re: Prescot Cables

Remember it reasonably well, mainly because it seemed a silly name to a 10 yr old, and I had never heard of Prescott. It was in the days when if we played a tean you had never heard of then a win was certain.

Just looked at GoogleEarth Blackwell Meadows and had a wave of nostalgia for Feethams because a really good kick to touch with a following wind might yet again end up in the Skerne.

Odds

250/1 for the Trophy (HAHA), but can you believe we are 6/4 and 11/10 for the League? Curzon look a good price at 2/1 and 9/4. I cant see why we should be favourites.Might have a few quid on Curzon and then they might as well give upMy few quid will be like filling their boots with lead.

Amazing. And Osset put 3 past Harrogate. They have lost most of their games by the odd goal. And we had a look of Bayern Munich about us last night. When do we fall to earth?

Re: Darlington v Kendal Town - Extended Highlights

Even when we wernt playing too well the crowd got behind the team. Just a question for anybody who was at the match. Are the highlights a fair representation or...

Excellent summary Numb. I just cant understand how the FA can justify this to Guernsey and Tunbridge, let alone the other NL members.From our experience usually they say that our rules, no matter how unfair, must be adhered to.
