Re: Jamie Holmes

Didn't Alan Shearer and Niall Quinn injure both cruciate ligaments... Shearer at Blackburn and Newcastle and Quinn at Manchester City and Sunderland...Although I'm sure Shearer lost half a yard in his speed when he recovered, which I think was back in about 1997 or 1998 I think it was still at a ti...

Re: Team v BPA

What is doubly frustrating is that I have seen some bad Darlo sides over the years, some really awful ones, but I can't remember any of them losing the first 4 home games in a season. This is not a bad side, no matter what style we play or what our weaknesses are, there is a large element of luck t...

Re: Team v BPA

One last thing.

We were missing too many good players tonight - Hunt, McMahon, Liddle, Hatfield, Holness - arguably Storey (though Laing and Atkinson have done well together for me) - I get that Hunt can't play yet but could none of the others have played?

Re: Team v BPA

In all my years watching Darlo I can never remember us missing a player like we miss Hatfield when he is not there. Wheatley was good again today but he was on his own. And Holness. Hatfield, Wheatley, Holness midfield 3 in a 4-5-1/4-3-3 - problem solved. I'm with darlo2001uk in thinking that those...

Re: Team v BPA

You can have as many plans as you like but when a team scores a goal then parks the bus its very hard to break them down. Reid should have done better for their goal without a doubt. Looked to me like some were saving themselves for sunday on that performance. 4 times in a row this has happened - l...

Re: Team v BPA

Don’t understand the formation tonight. Why go 4-2-3-1? Just put Atkinson in midfield, bring Storey in at CH and not play maguire or O’neill. The two with Reid doesn’t work, he doesn’t have the legs. Hoping for Holness, Hatfield and Wheatley on Sunday. I can see why AA stuck with Atkinson in centre...

How often do you think we will be one match away from a place in the FA Cup 3rd Round ? You're missing my point. It's not about how often this opportunity comes around (any other season I'd be hoping and praying we make it and draw a big club away), it's simply the fact that getting into Round 3 th...

Depends what the council risk assessment says.... below 1000 I’d imagine if social distancing still applies....
Social distancing will apply so BM is going to be around 500 capacity.

So if we are in tier 2 and can host 2,000 fans then the Arena will be the only option.

Re: ALFRETON ON TV

On another note that’s three goals on the bounce for Sousa, I really liked Donawa but I believe Sousa is an upgrade. Fantastic bit of business by AA. So far so good with Sousa. Nifty wingers tend to run out of steam after a run of games, or they get a bit cold and can't play any more (like Gillies)...

Yes but Boston just have quality and experience ...

Re: Fans before Christmas

Does this reopen the possibility of playing at the Arena again? To get everyone who wants to watch in person and still comply to social distancing then it makes sense. Having said that, more chance of HMG adding in new tiers which will prevent people in certain areas attending any function by havin...

No team should have to borrow money to replace lost gate income.

We could end up racking up an ever larger debt for 6 months. OK grants cover lo...

Re: Guiseley v Darlington

Should have finished about 8 or 9-0 to us. The woodwork, their keeper and a couple of misses from Campbell kept the score line a bit more respectable.

That they got a goal is almost a crime against football.

Thought Holness was having a good match. We're so much better with a midfield 3 of Wheatley, Hatfield and Holness, in a 4-3-3/4-5-1

Campbell FFS!

Should be on a hat trick.

And Hatfield hit the bar - should be 4-0.

Just the usual Darlo failing to capitalise again.

I've watched the incident again - and Hunt was actually fouled, so the ref got it wrong.
