FA Cup draw - Darlo Away to Walsall

I’m with Breedon here. To say it’s a s*** draw, as Loidlucan has, is way over the top. To put it in context, outside of friendlies it’s years since we played a league side in a meaningful game (ironically enough Bristol Rovers in the FA Cup 1st round nine years ago - happy to stand corrected if I’ve...

Re: FA Cup draw - Darlo Away to Walsall

Nowhere near as bad as some are making out. Yes it’s away again but it’s a league club for the first time in ages. Decent away day and a good chance of an upset, given they’re not in great form. Bring it on I say. Every chance it could be on the Sunday too, if the BBC are still doing their FA Cup Fi...

Re: FA CUP FIRST ROUND

Depends entirely on the draw! Sunderland at home for example would be basically guaranteed to be on TV I am not sure. The story is surely someone like Malden & Tiptree or Natwhich rather than us.

Democracy under threat.

To me wanting to have the no deal option is like saying “If you don’t give us a good deal, we’re going to shoot ourselves in the legs.” It’s not much a strategy to threaten to massive economic damage to yourself in protest at not getting the deal you want. That’s why I’m relaxed about no deal not h...

As much as I voted to Leave, I don’t believe No Deal is a good option for our country. From the Government’s own economic assessments, it would be massively damaging to our economy. By definition, trading on WTO terms is the worst case scenario, the least desirable outcome. It doesn’t resolve anyth...

I know Whitby are in the league below us, are they the lowest team ( in terms of league) left in the cup, from the northern section? Anyone
Nantwich are technically the lowest ranked 'Northern' team. They're one place below Whitby in the NPL.

Re: FA CUP FIRST ROUND

To me, any tie home or away to an EFL side is great. It’d provide an upset opportunity and depending on the opponent, possibly a TV fixture. But I totally get the logic of playing the weakest teams at home too. Worst case scenario would be an away tie to a southern-based National League side. A trip...

They don’t, but if believing it keeps you happy, go ahead. You were wrong on the Swiss border issue (and I’m not sure you fully grasp what the backstop was all about), and you’re wrong again on this.

Re: Democracy under threat.

Don’t understand the logic of going for no-deal. You’re still going to have to resolve key issues, such as the Northern Ireland border, customs and so on in any future trading deal with the EU. It’s misleading to pretend no-deal is a silver bullet. It merely kicks the can down the road and you still...

If we win on Saturday, we could get through to the second round without playing a game.

The last team out in 1st round draw is given a bye through. This covers Bury not being allowed to take part this year.

You’ve answered your own question. We’re paying his wages, so it’s not unreasonable for the very least fans to want is for him to give his all for the club. As far as I’m aware, we’re not paying money to the 90,000 residents of Darlington, hence why he should feel more for the club. And there were u...

Re: Burn Gone

Styche also had a much more mobility (when he wasn’t in a strop). Ainge’s injury meant he wasn’t mobile enough to play in that role, beyond being a big target man for us to lump balls towards when we ran out of ideas. With hindsight, it’s hard to fathom why TW signed him. The style of play TW initia...

There’s always plenty to joke about dear old Edward. You’ve provided me with a lifetime of material.

You should try laughing once in a while rather than shouting and getting angry over nothing. You’ll find it liberating. I can recommend some breathing exercises if you like.
