Re: Darlington FC fightback victories

Coming from 2 down at home to Hartlepool to win 5-2. McClean in the tin shed end before half time then 4 from Alan Walsh in the Polam end in the second half. About 1981 I think.
Also coming from 3-1 down at Salford to win 4-3 has got to be worth a shout.

Re: Feethams or the Arena

Well it has to be the Arena as there are too many houses on the pitch at Feethams these days.
However, if it we could roll back even to 2004 then feethams.

Re: BM or HP

Couldn't the Arena be added to this poll?
That being said HP right now is slightly better if too far out of town, but BM just needs more terracing and seats added.
I don't even think the clubhouse spoils the atmosphere.

Re: Tommy Wright: 19/20 Season. Yay or Nay

This isn't clear cut for me but I'd say we should start next season with TW. I think a lot of fans would look purely at attendance tables and assume that we should make the playoffs on that basis, but perhaps the real comparison is with other 'fan owned' clubs such as FC united. I think Tommy has ma...

Re: Twenty years ago tonight.

I was in the City end on the South Terrace with a mate of mine as I lived in Manchester and the 5000 home tickets had all been sold whearas City only sold half their ludicrous 3000 allocation.
Had to pretend to be really disappointed at City’s defending when Gary Bennet scored!

Re: Styche gone this week

I guess that's true, but is it so much the case while we're in the north. I'd imagine we have a fair few scattered around London, myself included. To be honest, it's much easier for me to get to home games via the east coast train, than a lot of away games in relatively obscure / badly connected sp...

Re: FlexiTicket

Surely if you buy a mini ticket you will use it yourself. Surely there will never be circumstances where someone who lives over 100 miles away can’t make it to the last game of the season. I know my one trip to the Ethiad a few years ago was using someone else’s ticket in the same circumstances. So...

Re: The world cup

What I don’t like about VAR is the now you can never quite cheer with certainty when you score a goal. The Iran non equaliser being a case in point. The huge cheer as the ball hits the back of the net and the ref points to the centre circle is what the game is all about. Goal line technology I can a...

Re: Admission prices

This isn't a criticism of you but getting the extra person at £12 is the biggest flaw in your cunning plan. Can we double crowds? No, not likely. Work on an assumption of average crowd of 1,600 1,600 at an average ticket price of £10 = £16,000 per match 1,600 at an average ticket price of £12 = £19...
