Re: AGM

I wonder if we're going to see a change in the approach to hospitality next year then. It's looked notably emptier a few times this year than usual. It was better valued before - but also that differential for season ticket holders to upgrade should be looked at, so they deduct the whole price of t...

BT Sport coverage Darlo vs. Walsall

I was fortunate to be at the game.

I don't have BT Sport and wondered for those that did view the coverage what their impressions were. How were we as a team and as a Club portayed?

Re: Extended ban

I think it appalling that the Club have 'named and shamed' on their official website and twitter account.

Surely this should have been kept private between the Club and the individual.

Whoever is in charge of PR needs to review the actions taken.

Re: Hospitality

Rather surprised that there is no hospitality package avialable for the Motherwell match. This would have been a great opportunity to showcase what the Club has to offer.

Re: Hospitality

At £45 this now puts our hospitality package as the most expensive in the division. Two fundamental problems remain: 1. The food quality is not up to standard for the price 2. There is no covered seating adjacent to the hospitality suite - it's not acceptabe asking patrons to walk to the other side ...

Seemed to me that the referee blew to take the free kick and then after Thompson had taken it, blew again because a player was receiving treatment 50yds away on the touch line ?
He wasn't injured he was tieing up his boots! Farcical.

Re: Southport v Darlington

Just back from the game. How it ended 0-0 I'll never know, if Southport had had a half decent striker they could have won 4-0 (or more). However, the positive to take from this was the stout and resolute defending from Darlo having defenders in the right place (on the goal line) at the right time. I...

This must be the poorest display that I've seen from Darlo in a long, long, time. It wasn't so much the defeat but the manner in which we lost - we went down with no fight at all. The team seemed slow, unfit and as though they had never played together before. Altrincham by contrast were competent, ...

What a contrast to the same game last season.

Our team is basically the same as last season (and possibly the season before when we were playing ...
