Wow. Check out our fixtures on the official website. They're not hopeful of this ending anytime soon.

Re: New initiative by the club 'Virtual Tickets'

Gramps, your request for a personally engraved golden toilet seat is the most pointless one I've heard yet. No-one needs a toilet seat any more. We're all shitting in holes in the ground and using leaves as there's no bog roll.

Re: New initiative by the club 'Virtual Tickets'

Pay day Monday for me then the club will be getting some more from me. I'd love us to raise 30k to be fair, as 20k is probably on the low side of the estimate.

Dilly dilly appears to be Hutchy. That's his writing style. If you don't know him he's been a die hard Darlo fan for years.

Re: The moment we've all been waiting for...

Another thought to bear in mind is that a number of clubs (at our level and above and below) may not have their benefactors any more as post Coronavirus they may not have the wealth to be able to splash willy-nilly on a club. This actually happened to us when Raj's company got into financial difficu...

It'll be the last chance to see us for some time, although living near Boston I'm hoping I may have the chance on Tuesday. Divas is right in that what confronts us will be unprecedented and it will have big implications for next season too. I'm wondering if we'll need to do some fundraising going fo...

Government about to do a U-Turn and announce from next weekend a ban on mass gatherings of over 500 people to ease the burden on the emergency services. So you handle it 2 ways as a league. You either ask clubs to limit crowds to 400 (taking into account the extra 100 players/officials/volunteers an...

I'm sure we could make a slush fund, just like we did to raise money in various ways before.
500 fans chipping in £50 is 25 grand.

Re: season tickets on sale

It's not in DJ's character to be underhand like this though, and he wouldn't put the idea out there if there wasn't an idea of how to fund it. You're usually a bit more positive than this H. I think the coronavirus is getting to you.

Re: Last home game for a while?

What you're saying doesn't fit with what the government are saying though. They're saying that gatherings of the type in our league don't really carry much of a risk. A bigger factor might be further postponements if teams get infected and have to self-isolate for 7 days. Crowds may certainly be dow...

Re: Today's results Saturday March 7th 2020

Just to analyse further Ginge's point about us needing a hot streak and others to stumble: Let's say we got another 20 points. This is a record of 6-2-2. Tough, but doable. We would end up on 68. Now, due to our poor goal difference, other teams would have to finish a point behind us. So, to end up ...

Les, it's probably because he wants to. Back in early 18 at a Netcafé he said he wanted to invest in the club at a later date and that was 2 years ago.

Also, on Luke Trotman, he's going to set up home with his Love Island girlfriend in Windsor which is a rather long way from Darlo.

Even when we got to 6th other teams had games in hand which they duly won. Be surprised if 7th place only got 66 points
