Re: Darlington V Hornchurch Trophy Quarter Final

I remember my lad being unimpressed with Campbell watching him at Altrincham then he popped up with a superb 94th minute equaliser. 97's figures are impressive and if all our strikers scored almost one in two we'd be well up the table. He always gives 100% and helps out all over the pitch. I think h...

Re: York City

Whilst I love(d) those old school grounds we've definitely seen improvements in facilities! I have no fond memories of the toilets at the back of the Anfield Kop, behind the Kippax or Shrewsbury's away end. Tranmere rebuilt three sides of the ground and kept a wonderful main stand and stayed right i...

Re: Those penalties

That's spooky....I was only thinking of that Rochdale game earlier today! Broke down on the way, my eldest got the car home via AA, we all hitched to the ground in two cars then after the despair of losing spent hours getting home by walking, two buses and a train.

Re: That penalty

There's always different opinions after incidents and even greater debate with slow motion replay and frozen shots. Just look at the debate around VAR and still opinions differ. I think at our level we expect too much from referees sometimes and think they should have eyes in the back of their heads...

Re: DFC Voted for League to be Null & Void

Four of the NLN games are off because the teams are in the trophy aren't they? I'm sure our board have the interests of the club at heart and will make the right decision about fulfilling league fixtures. I suppose there's a balance between taking us into financial ruin and playing on until the vote...

When I said predominantly I was talking more about the number of kits rather than the length of time each incarnation was worn! I'm currently catching some of Saints v Shrews and their rather nifty sash replacing the usual stripes.

Re: Home Kit Vote

Without seeing a full breakdown of the figures I'm not sure that 1800 isn't voting across all the shirt votes and not just the final? I suppose half of the eligible voters not voting perhaps indicates some of us have other priorities at the moment. If we're running away with the league I don't care ...

Re: Home Kit Vote

I've been busy selling my loft contents in eBay whilst the debate has filled five pages. I think it's quite something that the fans get to vote for the shirt design and I feel an open vote may have been abused. Citeh and Palace looked quite fetching in a sash style shirt and I'm not sure the history...

For a fiver I didn't expect Sky style coverage and apart from the poor camera angle, part of the pitch hidden behind the tunnel mesh, some celluloid terminator type moments, no commentary (and I can't do the darlo fans radio as it's miles out) it's been okay! Made me realise how very professional Qu...

Re: Shorter games ?

Don't agree,there have always been technically gifted players but they are, I'm sure fitter now. Some of us will remember the dreadful surfaces they played on, so energy draining and only one substitute. Gerry Byrne played the 65 cup final with a broken collar bone. Real tough players abounded and t...

Re: Spennymoor away

The reason York and Harrogate fans didn't post is surely because they have their own forums (or fora) to post on? Mind you, if you can't clear snow to get a match on you won't find time to develop your own forum.
