Re: Teams in National League North for next season

Oxford from Brackley is hardly a massive boundary stretch - personally i will be delighted if we get Oxford City and Kettering. If only we could get Hemel and St Albans. My own personal home in time for tea league!

Re: New Manager Interviews this week

Personally i don't mind who is interviewing who and what the process is. I am happy to let that process play out and let the people in the room make the decision based on a face to face selection process rather than we should have X because he has a name I recognize! The successful candidate has to ...

Re: Female managers

The problem would arise if the female manager took a fancy to one of our players. For example if Tommo was having a stinker but our new gaffer had a soft spot for smaller rugged looking players with tatts and a slight bald patch, would she really haul him off if he was having a stinker. Likewise if...

Re: Who do we fancy then?

Can we PLEASE look beyond people who have an "attachment" to this club and employ the best person we can? It is possible that people who have never played for Darlo are able to mange the club...............

Re: Favourite game + season grading

Best Game: Darlo 5 v York 1.

Grading: U as in unclassified. We were awful but at least turned up for the exam. We were not bad enough to go down which would have led to a FAIL grade!

Re: Statement from the board

it is a timely statement, however it doesn't address the key issue. If only getting behind the lads was enough. No amount of supporting the team will overcome the obvious problems with the squad or the short comings of the manager. No amount of backing can prevent the kind of embarrassing collapse w...

Not only the terrible clearance which leaves us under the cosh, but then also he should probably save the scu...

Re: Hereford v Darlington Match Thread

I was there yesterday. First half closed with us in total control at 2-0 up. We come out for the second half and make a mediocre side look superb. What on earth does Wright tell them at half time? We stopped doing everything we did well in the first half and just seemed to sit back deeper and deeper...

Re: Relegation Watch

I hope you are right! The good news is that we have games against sides close to us meaning we control our destiny.

The bad news is that we have a manager and team in whom I have absolutely no confidence. The manner of the defeat last night ( like at Chester) really concerns me.

my view - offered a point at the start of the game i think most would have taken it. Being 1-0 up going into injury time and coming away woith a point is frustrating. The substitutions changed the game but there was no real choice but to make the substitutions. Now, what side and shape is TW going t...
