Re: Darlington Formed 2012

All this talk about re-born clubs, football shares and phoenix clubs reminds me of Trigger on Only Fools and Horses.

He says he had the same broom for 20 years. It's had 17 new heads and 14 new handles in its time....

Re: Thommo

Thompson received an offer he "felt that he could not turn down" according to Holloway in this evening's net-cafe. Make of that what you will. I thought he turned down a very similar offer from us........ Perhaps he said that there was ‘nothing’ different. Or rather there was an extra 0 difference!...

I think we had a midfielder called Mike Robinson who never played again.


If it is the same one he was called Neil Robinson and I see to recall he was a vegan, so didn’t wear leather football boots. Isn’t it odd the things you remember (assuming I’m right of course).

Surely that should happen though.

If we are saying Thommos goals don't count, then any red cards shouldn't count either.

Re: Chester game....

We missed Hatfield as no one really replaced him. Reid was ineffective in the first half, was playing too high up and didn’t make an impact. Second half he was more central and did better. We let in two soft goals that went straight in without much of a fight. Other than that we pretty much matched ...

There are several reports out there that confirm the figure, including the Northern Echo. I can find this one from last year on the FA website: http://www.thefa.com/news/2018/nov/12/fa-cup-on-tv-first-round-replays-bt-sport-121118 The TV companies only pay half the fee for replays.

The prize fund for getting past the first round is £36k getting a TV game is likely being given the winners prize regardless which is quite nice. We are in a bit of stick and twist with the squad at the moment. We also need to pay out on our fine for the pitch invasion and various things which ende...

Re: Full blackwell

There will be less demand as it is on TV, but no-one will know how big the demand is until people start buying tickets.

Would recommend that anyone wanting a tickets buys in advance and arrives early to reduce congestion on the night!

Re: BT Sport...

Is the gate money split for the replay? If not it could be a tidy sum with the TV money. Not according to Craig Stoddart; "Each club receives £33,750 when chosen for a live TV replay, much-needed money for fan-owned Darlington.". And on The Northern Echo, too: https://www.thenorthernecho.co.uk/news...

Re: Walsall V Darlington FA Cup First Round Proper

In previous seasons the replays only got 50% of the tv money. Not sure if that is still the case, or why it is the case.

Do you get much money from the game being on tv in the first round? As that would be another consideration I guess.

Re: Tamworth V Darlington Match Thread

Easy win in the end and should’ve been more but for some (about 5) great saves by their keeper.

Were made to work hard in the first 25 mins and a good penalty save too.
