Re: Who will follow Wigan Athletic into administration?

Back in the day. I seem to remember Darlo players like Brian Henderson & Ron Greener " working" for John Neasham the car dealership in Darlington, John Neasham happened to be the club chairman at that time. I sure that was done by lots of other clubs especially in the days of the maximum wage. Not b...

Re: Maguire & Langstaff Released

Boo hoo.
It appears some Spendy fans are a tad upset Darlo have signed Dan McGuire.

It is so sad that they feel obliged to make up random numbers to pacify their jealousy.
They do not understand that it is not always about money.

Well done Alun Armstrong another great addition to good looking squad.

Langstaff as well I see...wonder which of the 2 we would go for ?

Re: Away shirts

I think the green shirts would have looked better with a full embroidered badge.
Not a big fan of the trend for bland printed badges.
Each to their own I suppose. 🙄

Re: FA Cup

Surely we will have some pre season friendlies before we play any competitive games, even if they are behind closed doors.
Not ideal but the same for all clubs at our level.

Re: Nicky Hunt

Great signing I wonder if the Freddie Barber connection helped at all.
As it has been said, his experience is just what we need, hopefully he fits into the jigsaw.
The Squad is starting to shape up nicely, giving us good options in most departments.
Quality keeper next please.

Re: Sports village

There was a 12,000 seater option with an option to build additions later, which at the time would have been ideal.
But of course Georgie was not interested.

Re: New signing

Looking at his goals he seems to be an all rounder, can poach as well as cool finisher.
Still has time to develope under Alun.
Do we know how long we have signed him for...is it the usual 1 year with a 1 year option in our favour ?

Welcome to the club Luke

Re: Sports village

I agree Poppyfield. Unless our management team have a plan B it looks as though our future looks bleak... It seems some are happy to wallow at our current level, with a few good runs at the playoffs or a good cup run when we get them, we need more than that to grow. All that will do over several sea...

ED JOHNS. The trip to Plymouth train journey was not mentioned, he knew Cooper from his days at the Boro. If you have not heard the interview it is worth a listen on the Darlo website. Yes we did have some really good players in that period, not sure what went wrong, I am sure some experts on here w...

It has been interesting to hear from Alan about his time at Darlo, especially his transfer to Bristol City. Allegedly Darlo turning down offers of 30 - 50 k , then ending up losing him in a tribunal for 18k. It seems the fact that we had not renegotiated a new contract with him, allowed Terry Cooper...

Re: Northern Echo...get it wrong again

Always had a soft spot for Gateshead due to being my mother’s birth place. Also think they were unfortunate to be demoted from the Football League in 1960 when they finished 3rd bottom 6 points above bottom placed Hartlepools. They have faced massive struggles since and have done well to survive an...

Re: Northern Echo...get it wrong again

Anyways hope that's clarified a few things and I don't see why the dispute between fans of both club. Any bad feeling is probably down to the Heed fans who were waving tenners at Darlo fans the last time we met at the arena when we were in the mire financially. I have no gripe with Gateshead as a c...
