Re: Darlington away vs Bishop Auckland

Lock the Heritage Park doors and get Bell to sign on the dotted line! Agreed he looked quality when he came on on the second half and took his second goal superbly. I’d never heard of him but if there’s a chance to sign him up we should give him a go! Holmes also looked excellent! Sent from my iPho...

Re: Adam Campbell

Wonder who will be alongside AA on the sidelines, cannot imagine he will be on his own, also the academy appointment must be due and see if Whitey will still be with us.Hope he is.

Re: Adam Campbell

Still think we're lacking more of a target man in the team up who can hold the ball up front to take some pressure off the defence when needed. Will be surprised if we don’t have a big CF on trial against Motherwell along with a couple more midfielders,so looking forward to seeing how we shape up i...

Re: Chris Elliott

Signed, according to the Echo. Backup goalkeeper everywhere he's been, as far as I can see. Wonder if we'll go for him, and he'll compete with a loan keeper from Boro as was the rumour. Hemming again, perhaps? He will be first choice according to AA. Saw a couple of videos of Alfreton and he looked...

Another reason to get behind the lad - imagine he improved and we sold him on for some £££ sure that would stick in their throats.[/ Why don’t some posters on here just wait and see what ALL AA’s signings are like before posting negative comments.This is exactly what AA was referring to in his inte...

South Shields seem to rate Connell highly, reckon he could end up at Shildon with Gray if he does not fancy the travel.

Agreed, his focus 100% is on Shildon and linking his youth setup to them which I would imagine would be pretty lucrative for him.This is his level now and will probably try and replicate what he did with us, but c...

Re: Darlington V Stockport

Am travelling in hope rather than expectation. We've drawn both our games there so far, would be great if that trend continued. If we do lose it must only be by the odd goal as our goal difference v those below us is effectively an extra point and we need to maintain that. Maybe the better surface ...

What is the point of signing players on loan and not playing them even when losing at home? Why play Elliot at left back for 2 games when just signed a left back on loan from a premiership club? Clearly he believes Elliott is a better left back so why on earth sign him? Why when losing 0-1 at home ...

Beating FC United at home will be a massive result for us and in all honesty would take a string of defeats to put us back in trouble.Then onto planning for next season and no repeat of this one would be acceptable.

Tide of opinion seems to have turned against TW since the Hereford game. Looks like the last straw to give away such a strong position in a crucial relegation battle.

TW has put together a fairly lightweight and fragile squad and I can very easily see us losing against Chester, drawing at Nuneaton and then losing at Stockport. In fact I can see a scenario in which we go into the final game at home to Leamington needing a victory to stay up. I really cannot in al...
