Re: Central defence

Agree with Pete. It's too early to be sure, though our defence looked solid as he says, but with the turn of the year it also feels like we have turned a corner and hopefully buried the fall out from MG and his departure. I'm sure others will be glad to put 2017 behind us too.

Re: Darlington FC V Harrogate

Having not been able to get to a match for several weeks I sort of went along to see how bad we'd got and expecting a pasting. Instead of which I thought we were rather good and I rated our keeper as excellent. A team huddle before kick off looked promising and then we got plenty of effort and deter...

Re: Laptop Help

Ha ha. I subscribe to a well known consumer magazine that tests these things. Otherwise I wouldn't have a clue. As OFC well knows!
So I thought I'd have a look and see what they were recommending. In the spirit of being helpful etc. (No I haven't had a visit from the 3 spirits yet).

Match threads - not what they were?

Since I began re-attending Darlington matches in 2012 after an absence of many years, one of the delights and surprises for me was to discover the Darlo Uncovered site, and the match threads became one of the regular nail-biting sources of updates I'd go to for the very latest news in matches (that ...

When the Archbishop of York (Mr Sentamu) was being made an honarary Yorkshireman at Theakstons brewery he explained that his middle name is Mugabe and his mother must have known something because when it's said backwards, it reads ebagum!

Pee'd off

Apparently, and according to the BBC, Salford's goalkeeper was sent off this afternoon for urinating during their match with Bradford.
Police were alerted following a complaint from a spectator. Can only assume the poor man must have been dreadfully caught short.

I wonder whether the players who've been mentioned in this thread would actually want to follow Gray to York. Depending on his man management style, what if they were glad to see the back of him? In my trade I had some good managers and some I was glad to see the back of.

Re: York City Transfer Targets

If this is still a post about York City transfer targets, I'll chip in here. The one player I never want to see leave is Gary Brown. For me anyway, he's always our best player and he's been so loyal and consistent.
