Completely different attitude to Mr Morose at the start of the season
You need to let this go and move on. Look forwards to the future. No one cares about looking back at the past.

Re: View from the Board/DJ

My understanding, council have no money to help, interest rates for stadium loan presently too high, a developer we were working with on a potential site (possibly Faverdale) has been beaten or gazumped by another developer who DJ will meet with shortly to see how much they want for earliest 26/27 ...

Re: Once the dust settles...

I don't believe that is the case. My understanding is that DRFC don't want development that would require their clubhouse to be replaced. Which essentially means BM could be developed sufficiently to mean NL standards but not to EFL. *If* we could move the pipe then that gives the full footprint of...

Re: Once the dust settles...

I think what I find frustrating in some of the new stadium discussion is over suitability to play in the football league. It’s pie in the sky when we don’t even look to be in much danger of escaping the national league north (upwards), let alone the level above it! If you're going to build a brand ...

Re: The Bottom Ten, Saturday Apr 13th 2024, Staying Up Edition

Next Saturday will be a good opportunity to give Asante a good 'run out', sorry I mean a good 'wander round the middle of the pitch' out I guess it would be dependent on whether he was contracted for next season or not. If his contract is up then there's literally no point. If his contract is for n...

Re: Well how did we do that?

Not me. Main is a better player in nearly every way IMO. His work rate, his thinking, the way he is determined to bundle his way through a defensive block, his team work ethic. Perhaps Hazel was better a placing a shot? But I can't remember. Don't get me wrong, I think Main has been amazing for us....

I was just pointing out that we've played worse teams than Farsley at BM.

And sadly (due to Clowning's incompetence) we blobbed them all. I'm not air brushing history for you Old Git. Especially because it gets on your tits.

Re: Darlington v Farsley 13/04/24

We’ve had a few 3-1 wins under Watson. I haven’t done my research, but I’d guess that was the most regular scoreline since he took over. Off the top of my head I can think of 4...plus two 4-0s.

I guess most people on here would prefer Blyth to stay up.

Without looking to check (if there is anywhere to check) I think it was about 5 points but at some point it was up to 8 or even 10 points because we did only win 2 of their first 7!
