Gutted. I hope we got a good sell on clause.

Can’t begrudge him the chance though.

Re: Swindon away

Yep. Bit rubbish that. Unlikely to make it on the telly, likely to get a walloping. Free shot. In relegation spot currently bit like ourselves! Bet they are more worried than we are. Of course. They'd be more worried if it was our place I think. Although, given everything is in an empty stadium, ma...

Re: Erico Sousa

Pedro Paulo, Rui Neves. If I was picking my all-time Darlo XI, Pedro would be in it. I think he only played something like six games for us, but I loved that guy. He died on my 19th birthday :cry: José Quitongo's Angolan, but another Portuguese we've supposedly had was that Paulo Mendes lad we were...

Re: Holness returns

I’m a big fan, as I’ve said before. Welcome back Omar. It’s a shame it’s a non-contract instead of a year. He may get picked off by another club if he plays well.

Re: Darlo TV

Anyone know what last night's audience figure was? Just over 700 according to the comms last night.Dont know how many were pubs though. Not just pubs but people at home / families etc aren't going to buy it 2 / 3 times for multiple people watching. I'd think it'd be a safe assumption at least 2,000...

Re: Harvey Saunders

Absolutely delighted for him. He's still a young lad with the potential to get better and I'm sure the rough and tumble of the NLN did him no harm at all.

If he could go on to be a superstar and we have a nice sell-on clause, that'd be real nice too ;)

Re: Fylde Tuesday night

Nothing to do with Fylde and their attitude to stuff tbh and everything to do with the fact that we know that streaming is £7.99 per household per game. Whereas the average revenue per household per game would probably be in the region of £12 - £16. Appreciate we have some government funding now bu...

Fair play. I sort of respect the sheer dedication it must've taken to stay at Blyth all the time.

Re: Update Required?

Very few stewards these days are volunteers. Probably even less so during Covid when you factor in those that are, are mainly elderly and won’t want to put themselves at risk when they don’t have to. I certainly wouldn’t be doing the role that I did and I’m much younger than many. Additional paid r...

That's sad for him. I suspect that's probably him done in football (certainly at this level). Two years of not playing are probably pretty fatal for his career.

Re: Update Required?

It’s absolutely pointless having 300 fans in at this sort of level and above. It would cost the club more to put a game on with those numbers than we’d make which is why it isn’t a solution that has been implemented any higher than league where that sort of number is the norm. How? Our stewards and...

I’m genuinely surprised this is allowed? We must’ve asked the FA if it was ok I suppose, but I thought there are some pretty stringent rules with using more than one stadium.
