Re: Darlington V Southport

Really!? If anything then, he is remarkably two footed. He used his right foot repeatedly, to a point where he had convinced me he was right footed. I know Liddle was out of position, but he was excellent. I know Watson is a utility man, but thought he was right footed. Shows what I know eh. Both we...

Re: Darlington V Southport

Made it up for my first game this season, and needless to say i'm delighted. It is night and day from last year. You don't need to be there really to see the depth and options on the bench. Although no back up keeper does make me a little nervous, i will admit. Anyway. A brief review; Massively impr...

Re: The Areana

We’ll need to find somewhere eventually. Can anyone really see the rugby club agreeing another license for us to play there when this one is up and they’ve cleared their debts? Are you saying their debts are one-offs rather than operational? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk This is a fair point, ...

Re: The Areana

Generating the millions needed to rebuild BM or build a stadium at the SV from scratch is not going to happen. If we ever want to progress beyond where we are then we can't stay at BM.

I think it is a bit early to write them off, they are all strangers and it is going to take them time to gel. Aye, but there's some questionable 'quality' in that team. How many players did they sign from the northern league again? Clark isn't playing Robbie Dale either, which is... baffling given ...

The thing is, the rugby club, or whoever owns the damned thing don’t seem to want to reduce it’s size, because of the half baked notion that people want to use it for gigs, or a multitude of other nonsense that Darlington doesn’t need, or have the demand for. It just needs knocking down. You could t...

Re: Jamie Holmes out for six months

Unbelievable. First thoughts are with the player, obviously. But this is rotten luck. It’s difficult for clubs like us to carry financial burdens when these injuries happen. I wonder if we have a form of insurance for such scenarios?

An opportunity for Donowa, for sure.

Re: Saturday

This suggestion is exactly what TW would do. Play the system, use what we have. Maybe we might look to loan a kid from Boro to bulk out some cover, but can’t both Watson and Atkinson play there? Gutted for Trotman though. An awful injury, and he really looked like he would kick on. He could quite co...

Their crowd at the weekend wasn't as bad as i thought it might have been, but lets see how it lasts over a season if results don't go their way. Right now, i'd...

Some of the replies on here are a little spiteful. I don't wish him any ill will.

He's a strange player though. I don't think he knows his real position, which is something of a problem.

I've certainly no issue with us offering tickets that are accessible to grow our fan base - and arguably doing a load of cheap season tickets is a good way to do it - if you have someone to bail you out that year financially. We don't, so it's not an option. You can't brag about the numbers when you...

It could win them some fans who return, but it has to be a significant financial gamble for the owner this year. Gambling on going up?

Holness, Bell and Bascome might round it out. How was Donawa? We know Holness can do it from our preview last year. Bascome tweeted out the other week he couldn't wait for the season to start... which sort of suggests he's on board. Maybe he's on a youth contract? Bell is only an 18 year old lad isn...
