Re: Great Annual Savings

6 million? How do you fail to pay that much in tax. Even, let's say, they give them 10 years to pay it back at 600k a year, that's Spenny's safety net gone.

I think the booing after those games was at the referee, personally.

In Bullseye style 'Take a look at what you would have won', Hyde got Buxton away. Shame, great one for Midlands exiles like me.

Re: FA Cup Q3

From the dim and distant FA Cup past at Hyde the name Gavin Worboys comes to mind! Jeez, nearly 30 years ago, weather and I think plastic a pitch were awful. Seem to remember Darlo went 1-0 down but that might be my fading memory. Your memory is fine my friend. We did go 1-0 down. A dream tie for y...

Possibly Spyman, but hoping it's so we can rotate a bit more and that it's an injury caused by fatigue.

Re: FA Cup Q3

If it ever came to it, I’d like to think the Rugby Club would allow concrete step terracing at the open end to get us up to the required 4,000 capacity (in the event we were to be promoted). It would, of course, all have to be at our expense. The Rugby Club don’t want wholesale stadium changes to g...

Re: FA Cup Q3

Lo is right. We can go up but not stay up at BM. We would need to play at a 4k capacity ground by March 31st and couldn't do this at BM as the rugby club will not allow us to develop it further.

I take it that the regionalisation is widened in the next 2 qualifying rounds, hence us playing Leamington and Tamworth in recent years in the 3rd and 4th QR.

Re: Shock as Spendy 'Both sides' trouble

He does mention that their players were wrong to celebrate in front of our fans, and then said that it's something that, to the Darlington players' credit, they didn't do. He says he's going to remind the Spenny players that this was unacceptable. I actually find it a very balanced and fair statemen...

Why don't you cross check another source for the League Table on the Internet. A quick check would tell you there's an error on Sky, which happens sometimes. There are plenty of sources out there.

In the interview he said his best position was a number 8, so a playmaker

Fathers and sons who played for Darlington

As Ben has signed it got me thinking of other fathers and sons who have played for Darlington.

Didn't Stevie Johnson play, and his son played in a Durham County Cup tie for us?

Re: Kaine Felix

Read somewhere that he said he'd made a mistake and should have joined us in the first place. On another note, DJ said the budget was used up 2 weeks ago, so wonder if that was a ploy to prevent clubs from asking us for silly
money or whether we've got some money from KDS.

Re: Guiseley V Darlo

Rivers was named as starting then didn't, as possibly he tweaked something in the warm up. That meant starting Mondal on the left wing and Lambert on the right wing, which didn't help as the service was poor. As for the centre half from Bishop, I was hoping he'd make a good impression as we really n...

Re: Rivers

Very surprised by Scunthorpe beating Sheff Utd yesterday. They've assembled a team on the cheap and apparently played very well. Keith Alexander of Lincoln did the same when they had financial troubles and got them into the play-offs by some miracle, so it can work. Their problem is that they have n...

3 new trialists - Romario Vieira, who is twin brother of ex-Leeds Ronaldo Vieira, a midfielder from Tadcaster. Could be a recommendation from KDS?
Jordan Emery is a midfielder from Bishop
Alfie Hughes is a midfielder from Newcastle U23s.

It's very feasable. The owner is effectively mothballing them and looking for players on the cheap. Sousa is way out of their price range.

AA said he had a couple more offers in, and implied they were further up the pyramid, so wouldn't be surprised if one was Sousa. Beck eventually took our offer when he didn't get fixed up with another club.
