Re: Match Thread!

This is killing me. Just 12 miles from the game. Sat in front of my computer. Nothing keeping me from the game apart from greedy fu%&$£s. As Quakerz says, bricking it every time a tweet comes through. Wish I'd gone to a game though. This. I'd been looking forward to it for a number of weeks. Wife's...

Re: West Auckland boycott - Facebook group

The bottom line is now that everyone knows West's stance, everyone knows they are taking the piss out of us, most of us don't like that, and have broadly agreed that we won't have the piss taken out of us. There is a 9-10% minority that are prepared to go to West and line West's pockets and get lau...

Just so we're all clear here, are you seriously suggesting that you're going to form a picket line and try to prevent those of us who may be bringing our children to watch the game from entering?

Re: West Auckland boycott - Facebook group

At the root of my personal decision, whatever it turns out to be, will be the fact I'm in my 50s and have been supporting the club for well over 40 years now. My father took me, and now I take my kids. I'm sure it's exactly the same for many of us here. Yes that's the case for me too. And like you ...

And how many fucking times does it need to be said that these players are used to playing at this level in front of 50 blokes and a couple of sheep dogs.

Re: West Auckland boycott - Facebook group

We won't take 6/700, no way. The poll on this site, which is very representative of Darlo fans as a whole shows 9% will go. Let's say a few cave in nearer the time and we go up to 15%, as a proportion of our support even that would only translate to 200-250. If even 200-250 of us attend, this would...

West Auckland game: What would the players want?

I've been following the various discussions regarding the West Auckland game. Clearly, West Auckland are taking a liberty by proposing to put up the prices in this way. As such, I can fully accept that, for many people, this is either unaffordable, unacceptable, or both. But the thing I'm wondering ...

Re: Darlo are 18th best supported non-league team

If this support continues, it might well be enough to eventually propel us back up into the Conference. After what we've been through in the past few years, I'd be more than happy to settle for that.

Right now though, it's just nice to enjoy a period of relative stability in the club.

Re: Alarm bells ringing - Admission prices.

Now for families. If travelling by car the price of £3.50 is still cheaper than paying £5 to park, then add on the price of getting to the arena. Tickets are cheaper too, so even at the qoted prices of £12 & £8 a family of two adults and one child works out at £32. Arena price = £35(entrance fee of...

Re: Feethams Video

Nice piece of film, Shaun, well done!

Watching it just now, and bearing in mind developments over the past few days, I'm becoming persuaded that the time to get behind this campaign is now and that to do so is in the interests of anybody who wants to see the club return to feethams.
