The key turning point was sacking Clowning.

Re: Curzon V Darlington

Everyone needs to forget what the other teams are doing and focus on what Darlo are doing. They are irrelevant if we get enough points ourselves. I was sick of hearing the commentator blathering on all match about what King's Lynn were doing, how the Rushall result is bad for us, at least Banbury lo...

Re: Curzon V Darlington

I know Curzon always seem to get the better of us, but it is worth pointing out that their current positon in the league (9th) is mainly atrtibutable to their away form (W8 D6 L4). Their last two away matches were a 0-0 at FC Service Station and a 1-0 win at Scunny. At home they are far less consis...

The constant "we wouldn't be in this mess if it wasn't for Gowling being inserted into almost every discussion is tedious and isn't doing anyone any favours.

Re: Darlington v Buxton

Players are going out on loan but the ones we have tried to get have chosen other clubs in better positions. Even players who want to get themselves in the shop window are choosing other options.

Re: Run-in

In the absence of Ginge and his stat machine, I've had a look at the fixtures for the bottom seven (realistically, the others are clear of being dragged into the relegation places). Even (rose-tintedly) allowing for us having the best record (W4 D5 L2), we still go down on goal difference. Might ne...

Win our home matches - barring Scunthorpe and Chorley, and there are several places away where we're capable of going and winning. 6 wins, 2 draws and 4 defeats sees us home and dry. Not that we should even be in this position anyway, that's thanks to Clowning wasting easy home match after easy home...

Re: Darlington v Buxton

I was absolutely over the moon for Nelson yesterday to get the goal and assist. His injury problems do look way behind him and he has looked in recent months an energetic and hard working player - just without the goals. Hopefully that will give him a massive shot of confidence because he came on an...

Re: Boston v Darlington 20/02/24

It is genuinely sad to see Nelson such a shadow of his former self. In his first spell he was electric, but genuine misfortune with injuries has ruined him. Living off a very good loan spell from around five years ago. Done very well to even be playing again after his injuries, but he’s not up to i...

Plenty of winnable matches left, we need to make sure we don't go 1-0 down in any of them.

Tonight is just tragic, sounds like we played well and got nowt again.

He says he will be playing again this season despite suffering setbacks in his recovery from a bad injury. Is said to be one of the higher earners at Kiddy.

Let's be clear, there was no argument against sacking Clowning.

The only argument was that we didn't boot giggles soon enough.
