Re: Tamworth V Darlington Match Thread

Wow, all these wild and wonderful scenarios, accompanied by the odd negativity! Some things never change, but hey come on let's enjoy the fact we have made it to the 1ST ROUND for the first time in 9 years and just see what the draw brings 7pm tomorrow on BBC2. For the record I would love to have a...

Re: FA Cup 4th Qualifying Round - Away to Tamworth or Hereford

It would be nice to think that all that ill luck, in never doing well in the cup for so long, could be paid back all in this one season, with us getting through on Saturday, and getting the bye in the first round proper. That special position plus a good draw in the second round might also be enough...

Re: Darlington V Boston

Given the shortage of available players this was a wonderfully unexpected result against a side that doesn't give too much away (only 10 goals against in 11 games before yesterday). Belief amongst the players is clearly growing and can survive, even when you are down to the squad's bare bones. And w...

Re: Leamington v Darlington

After a poor start to the season away from home it is very pleasing to see the signs of an improved way of managing a game. Whilst I am sure we would love to see the team boss every game and go for the opposition from the start, the early away games seem to have proved that if you do you can come un...

Re: Alfreton V Darlington

Looking at the highlights took me back two years when I was at the Alfreton away game. Liddle's incident remained me of a similar event in the first half back then when one of our players went down under a clear leading arm foul, which looked like a clear sending off, but the ref did nothing. The la...

Re: Gary Martin

Comparing him to Burn is daft. If it didn't work out then he leaves after the 3 month break and goes back to Iceland. Burn we are stuck with even when he was offered a very good deal by Whickham. I am disappointed that you think that anything in this thread, including my two post, was in any way co...

It is easy to see that we are well short of being the team that AA set out to run with at the start of the season, and even with better luck with injuries it still may have been a tough season to make headway, especially in the opening rush of games.

Re: Darlington V Blyth

O'Neill is most certainly a forward, but better than that a very good footballer who carries the ball well when surrounded by opponents. I have been amazed how often he manages to come away with the ball when it looks as if there is no way out. And he gives 100 per cent, which shows in the way he ha...

It is very early in the season to undo the ills of last season's home form.

The team is certainly doing its bit to create a better v...

I'd like to give a big thumbs up to Tyrone O'Neill who made a big difference when he came on. Suddenly the many aimless balls forward from the first half were beginning to stick up front, and the lad has very good feet as well. Thought Campbell was given more chance once he had a partner to work off...
