Re: Boston v Darlington 20/02/24

Yep I was at shields. And yes he was offside often, but Watson has said that the players need to gamble on opportunities so assume Nelson looking at that and assume he is desperate to get that goal, team struggling up front but I think that Main and Nelson will come good, question being just will th...

Re: Boston v Darlington 20/02/24

Just watched the goals again, after defending well most of the game, two soft goals again, worse than I thought at the game.

Re: More local competition for good players now at Blyth

I hope it doesn't go wrong for Blyth, it is one of the clubs I have time for, I always enjoy going there, think they have good fans and a great club house and some of the best pies at football grounds.

Re: Boston v Darlington 20/02/24

Just shows you how different people see things, I thought Nelson was miles better than Main tonight, he was constantly busy, got into scoring positions, did not see anything from Main much tonight, just my opinion of course. Think Nelson is the fall guy because he is not putting them away rather tha...

Re: South Shields v Darlo

I was one of the lucky ones that were able to get into the stand for the second half, my opinion was at the time, as it was just below me, that it wasn't a red, but definitely a yellow as it was a reckless challenge and pointless one. Thought we could have also had a couple of penalties to be honest...

Re: Reset

Not sure we have a balanced view on the loss of revenue to be honest, while clearly there will be hit from the league funding, and loss of 2 games as mentioned. The sponsorship etc may take a hit, but if we have a successful year may be not? Away following, there are only a few games where we get no...

Those mentioning that AA was hard done by, and you could be right, but I had heard that he was not really getting involved in the training, and involved in his sons move from Harrogate, (true or not? I dont know), but more importantly for me he looked a down, and a beaten man on the interviews in th...

If we'd stuck the £30,000 on it to win how much would we have got?
£105,000
I got 3/1 early last night so £90k for bet plus the £30k stake = £120k, so depending on time of bet.

And the horse romped home, may be our team can now follow that example :D

Re: Darlington v Alfreton 10/02/24

We played well for the first 20 mins, and created some half chances, then because we didn't score went into hiding again, short passes sideways to players already under pressure, then long punt forward. Had the best chance of the game late on but no one able to calmly place the ball, but just kicked...

For those that think we can afford to get promoted in these last few seasons, please go and watch a few games in the national league, the standard is far higher than our league from the games I have watched, (all but one of the home games and half a dozen away games). Think Oxford are one of the few...

Re: Banbury V Darlington

We started brightly against what was a poor team last night, but they could pass to each other, and move once passed which often left them in space to recieve a pass where we are static. There were only 3 shots on target from memory from both teams, and they ended up in goals. Midfield were all over...

Re: Darlington v Hereford

Whole team played well today, every one put in a massive effort, Hatfield covered every inch, defence looked solid enough. Nelson gave great cover for Griffiths who had a task against their tall winger, although it did limit his chances going forward. There was more shots on target in this game than...

Re: Darlington v Hereford

Main and Nelson up front imo, main can score at this level and provide assists, and I think Nelson would relish that.
Just my opinion of course, may have a bet on a 3-1 win :)

Re: v Tamworth

We all have our own views, but for me personally I would go for Nelson, Salkeld has pace and looks lively when he is on song, but seems to have weak feet as not seen him win a 50/50 ball, he has a weak shot and doesn't win headers also lately was slow getting back to cover, (but that may be him suff...

Re: Southport

Thought we started well, and the majority of players worked hard, but totally lacked up front. Players like Hedley who had a solid game defending often gave the ball straight back to their players. Saying that if he could hit the target he has a great shot from distance on him. Will Hatfield run his...

I have just put in as a one off, target is a bit of a stretch as it requires say 300 of the fans putting in £100 or 600 putting in £50 each, or £23 each from the 1300 regular supporters, what is just after Christmas to reach it. A fantastic start though and hope we can meet the target in what is a s...

Think they did it on purpose OG, my understanding was that we could not have seats and prover view and cover due to work on the stadium, which was clearly a lie if my understanding was true, it also stopped our fans being able to make a noise.
