Re: Darlo -Diary .We need significant change.

I’ve heard the DFCSG board is pressing for change so as the owner I can’t see him being here after Saturday so not DJ’s shout really. If he is going best to let him go before Saturday for his own self respect no point stringing it out. It absolutely is DJ's shout. He's the chief executive who runs ...

Utterly dreadful. Couldn't string 2 passes together and just hoofed the ball.in the air. To make a team like that look half decent is inexcusable. If we stay like this next season we'll be down there again that's for sure.
Yep agree good report.

At the end of the game, thank goodness they did not throw their shirts to the fans ,as they would have been thrown back!
Don't worry if they had tried to then like our passes today they would have ended up nowhere near where they intended to throw them.

Re: Trotman extends contract

Good move by the club to secure Luke has definitely been one of our best and most consistent players over the last 18 months. He would be more than deserving of the opportunity to test himself full time again. But, as someone mentioned above, he will be going into the final year of his degree next ...

Re: Trotman extends contract

Seems it's believed we have triggered an extension to his contract so ties him down to us for another year. Quite happy with that as we either keep him for a season or he leaves for a fee, we could do with some stability as the squad is so small anyhow - I would prefer to keep him for a year. "So t...

Re: TW - Learning His Trade

Would you be happy with Jason Ainsley as manager? Someone who has a virtual blank cheque at the start of the season and can get new players in to create even more competition, yet has proven that even that sort of set up does not guarantee anything? For me the biggest issue with Wright is that he f...

Re: TW - Learning His Trade

A manager is not judged on isolated matches. The fact that a side can win and play well occasionally does not mean that Tommy "has proven he can do it but just needs to find consistency". It shows that Tommy can't put together a side that is consistent, that can gets results and move up the table. ...

Re: Darlington V FC United

I'm not sure myself. Even if it was 'just' 270k then it's still a decent chunk. MG reckoned you needed a budget of 400k to compete with some of the bankrollers. Here's the direct quote from the Netcafé "Our initial annual playing budget was set at £330k for the season and that was based against pro...

Re: Harvey Saunders Departs

Whilst I think he has developed a lot this season does anyone else agree with me that he's either stagnated or gone backwards since he signed for Fleetwood? Certainly we can't claim to have developed him further in my view which was part of the loan deal.

There's a lot of criticism on this board of TW and speculation if and when a new manager will be appointed. However, there's little mentioned about Alan White.

Another game last night which was low on entertainment and quality. Plenty of possession but we never really looked threatening. Quite why Wright didn't try something to change things I've no idea.

Personally I would cancel this netcafe and hold something at the end of the season. The timing is all wrong now.
