Re: Once the dust settles...

I often have disagreed with TOFC, but I understand where he is coming from.

We were apathy, David vs Goliath, part-time, gaffer going on a wander, media silence, Budget FC for the best part of 2023.

Re: Well how did we do that?

Why do threads always descend into personal point-scoring? I don't really care if someone thought Gowling should have been given more time, or if Martin Gray was the only man to get us out of the mess, or if the signing of an injured Asante was an egregious assault on our very existence as a fan ow...

Re: Well how did we do that?

It's what happens when you appoint a proper manager. Credit to the Board for appointing Watson & Mitchell, but even bigger credit to them both for their work since January. The Board must learn from the appointment of the Giggler. Does CrazyDarlo still think he deserved more time? Obviously not but...

Re: We’ve come along way.

I think the take out from this saga is... Always go for the obvious choice. Always. There is no guarantee of success (whatever success is) even with the obvious choice, but the odds will be higher. The benefit of the obvious choice is it reduces noise from the outset. I am not sure Luke Williams wa...

Re: Needed points minimum

Worried with how knackered they all look. Desperately need some new bodies in but doesn't seem to be any whiff of that. We're a Cedric Main injury away from disaster. I was thinking that about Main yesterday. If he got nobbled we would be in bother. You are forgetting about Asante who is only two m...

Re: What's the point of fan ownership?

What is the point of fan ownership? That's not a rhetorical question, and I don't raise it in the pejorative sense, but how many Darlo fans would be able to give a succinct and compelling answer to that question when challenged? Perhaps you'd give me a brief history lesson on the succession of disa...

Re: Asante

Perhaps we could have another Fans Forum? This time without the pissy attitude from DJ, our Head of the SG excusing our worst defeat in 30 years, our manager lying on the spot, and our SLO rail-roading the questions by highlighting the fact we've signed the best striker in the National League.

Regardless of his contractual work-commitments to DFC, I'm not sure insinuating that one of our supporters is a c*nt adheres to our fan-owned values.

Re: Blood on hands/heads must roll

I don’t think this would be an issue if we weren’t sat in the relegation zone. Escape goat mentality. Where is the goat escaping too? On a serious note, employing a GK coach who doesn't attend all games is the least of the issues. I'm more bothered about him insinuating that one of our supporters i...

Putting aside his contract and what he is/isn't earning, when will we get an actual update on him? Why is Ray not asking SW/TM for an update in interviews? It's all a bit bizarre. All we're being fed is the line of 'Asante will have a fitness test' in the previews. Because this is the sort of commu...

Re: Asante

My patience is definitely wearing thin if he's contracted for next season. If that's the case it's a ridiculous decision. Had he come in fit, playing regularly and scoring goals that would put a different slant on it. Sure I read his contract is this season and next when he signed. I am sorry but i...

Re: Darlington V Scarborough

There needs to be a complete rebuild, from the players to the staff and the board imho. The club has malaise that has set in and been allowed to grow deep into every fibre, and leadership has allowed that. In the past 4 years are we any better off than we were before? On the field definitely not, o...

Nuleaf have now ceased trading as of last week.

Looking at Companies House, we should never have agreed to this in the first place.
Is it a bad thing?

Surely we have been paid already and now we can replace them and get paid again.
