Re: Darlo -Diary .We need significant change.

I’ve heard the DFCSG board is pressing for change so as the owner I can’t see him being here after Saturday so not DJ’s shout really. If he is going best to let him go before Saturday for his own self respect no point stringing it out. It absolutely is DJ's shout. He's the chief executive who runs ...

Re: Grange Road Sign

DFC should tell RC if its not up for the new season then the clubs advice is to advise fans not to use it, the loss of revenue would make a sign appear I’m sure. Just a thought but in the meantime see if we can put a marquee up at Blackwell Hotel.

Grange Road Sign

Anyone know the update on this last thing I heard is that
few designs have been done but it’s all gone quiet. It should really be in place for next season.

Re: TW - Learning His Trade

Personally I would like to see Tommy & Alan staying for next season, it’s take time to develop a team and I believe the team is all gelling together. If he goes there will be the dismantling of the current squad. Plus there’s all the work at the Academy which is going from strength to strength. A go...

Re: Trotman extends contract

That’s great news, really like Trotman. I expect TW to be here next season as Trots wouldn’t have signed if Tommy was moving on and would have found a club more local to him.

I've spoken to Hodgy fairly recently and sadly he'll never become a quaker for the fourth time, but he still loves the club and the fans.
He can’t love the club that much he’s never been to see a game at Blackwell.

In the past after a win he's all smiles but yesterday he had his defeat face on. Looks a broken man to me. Contrast with Jim Ganno...

Do we have to pay back grants if sport is still played at B. Meadows? Which it will be as the rugby will stay.

Re: Sporting Village

Good summary above. Sort those two problems then it’s either go there at no development cost or develop BM to anywhere between £2m-£3M which we just haven’t got. The decision would lie with a vote of SG members. All fairly academic at present with crowds of 1200 and the 500 seats rarely full. I sup...

Re: Sporting Village

It's not a case of being "buttered up" or not - obviously they'd have us because it means more income of top of the potential other income from the SV development. The problem is that a) part of the plan is a 4g pitch, which the football league does not allow currently and maybe never will, and b) ...

Re: FANS NETCAFE -this Friday evening.

SV will go ahead whether we are there or not, reading through the Netcafe I get the sense we will stay at BM and with crowds around 1200 there’s little point on any redevelopment.

Re: FANS NETCAFE -this Friday evening.

When you break it all down like that it’s not such a bad deal except the 20% they get for advertising boards. Until we get our own ground it will always be the same and I can’t see that ever happening under the current ownership model it’s just to expensive.

Everyone is disappointed with this season. However and I’ll probably get shot down for this he has had to sell Heaton, Styche, Syers etc with these in place it may have been a different season. The money received from sales hasn’t enabled him to buy more players rather it’s been used to pay off debt...

Before the long trip back yesterday I wanted Tommy to leave. However on reflection we as fans are a fickle bunch and shouldn’t rush to a quick decision. If we had won we would all be saying how good Tommy is. He has had to deal with losing some key players this season to balance the books, I doubt ...
