Re: Darlington V Walsall Match Thread

We had a cup run. Something we have dreamed about for years. Only behind to a league two club late in both games. Proud of all the lads, gave their all. However, we desperately need a striker.

Re: Flares /pyrotechnics

Security were 100% ineffective, letting people stand in prohibited area in front of Tin Shed, stood by when people vaped 2 yards away & still some wassocks threw flares before and after the game. Just reinforced the point that BM is not equipped for giving a good view if there are more than 2000 at...

Playing non-league football on a plastic pitch at a giant empty stadium where we previously went under, sounds really tempting.
Exactly :clap: not to mention the other times we narrowly escaped.

The 192 online tickets were gone by 1 minute past 10!
Can’t help but worry this has been one person intending to sell on at a profit. Hopefully someone will check the validity of the purchase if so.
I am sure that one person did not put all 192 tickets in his basket and buy them .........,.

Re: BT Sport...

Thanks to the 500 members for helping to get us started. This cup run will help to make us self-sustaining if we invest in our future & not splurge on mercenaries. Ok we may need a couple of emergency signings to shore up a stretched squad, but I would trust AA to do the right thing. Marty would al...

It also says we haven’t been in the 2nd round since 2006, which is also incorrect. We played York in Round Two in 2010.

Re: O'Neill recalled

This is also not the Boro of old with stacks of first-team options waiting in the wings. In the past a couple of striker injuries probably wouldn't have led to the recall of an untried Academy lad playing four divisions lower down the pyramid. However, things are different at the Riverside now and ...
