Re: Simply not good enough

With regards to us being over budget, I’d guess it’s due to the fact we’re paying three long terms absences so have had to bring new players in. We have signed Connell, Storey and Hedley. Say they are on £200 a week each (mid table players wages in this league), sums as follows: £600 a week x 40 we...

Re: Leamington (A)

Definitely needs to shuffle his pack to make room for a striker, 2 keepers on the books, we only need one. Surplus of midfielders. Lots of wide forwards/wingers and number 10s. Plenty of clubs at this level compete with 16/17 senior pros and a handful of kids to make the bench up and seem to manage ...

Re: FA Trophy 1st Rnd Proper - options

It’s not that the prize money is small per se. Just that gate receipts can be bigger if the correct club can be drawn away from home. The ideal scenario from a financial viewpoint (if not going on to win) would be Hartlepool in the semi final, bank the prize money until that point then a big payday ...

Re: Louis Laing

Could he be converted to a stopgap striker. He is tall enough to win headers and has a fair amount of skill on the ball so could be a possible option for us.If Hedley and Liddle are available on Wednesday he will be surplus to requirements as a defender.Would give us a different type of threat if s...

They were obviously hoping for the upset so we’re biased towards Darlo a bit which was nice. The fan ownership came across well. The club came out of it with a lot of positive PR overall

Re: Gates

Increasing capacity to 4000 is far from easy. You can only build on about 60% of the open end. A terrace would increase capacity but you'd lose the equivalent of four rows deep standing in front of it. So you are taking about a terrace of 1400 or so, which is not cheap at all. It would have to be t...

There’s also 4 times the usual amount per turnstile to deal with. It still takes time to scan and process fans. If people turn up after 7:30 they risk not seeing kick off

Re: Full blackwell

Based on the Halifax game it would be suicide. Those floating fans who turned up and couldn’t see the game wouldn’t come again. I’d rather a “comfortable” 2500. I’m all for making money from the game but we’ve got to balance it with ensuring the experience is good so those that do come might think a...

Re: Second Round Draw

Not being a doom merchant but I'll be surprised if we reach the 2nd round, reason being that historically lower league teams normally fail on their second bite of the cherry against a higher team. Cup shocks normally have to be done on the day or generally the chance has passed. Hope I'm wrong of c...

Re: Darlington V Kidderminster

It was the legendary Hodgy signing Stephen Thomas who was always two weeks away.

All 3 long term absentees have had their operations. I think we’re looking at mid Jan / early Feb for Atkinson depending how long it takes to get him up to speed again.

Re: Tamworth V Darlington Match Thread

Whichever way he goes today it’ll be a massively strong bench today. Lots to call upon later if needed to add a different dimension against tiring legs.
