Re: Ainge signs for Darlo

http://darlingtonfootballclub.co.uk/quakers-sign-simon-ainge/ If he's over his bad injury from last season, then a cracking signing. At Harrogate he scored (according to the ever reliable Wikipedia) 35 goals in 54 games, which is superb. Him and Styche could (should) be up there with the best the l...

Re: Phil Turnbull Departs

Turnbull was not in the side to score goals. Therefore criticising him for not scoring enough goals is bullshit. Anyone saying otherwise doesn't know what they're talking about. As such, Quakermass doesn't know what he's/she's talking about. He/she hasn't even explained why he thinks that. It just ...

Re: Phil Turnbull Departs

It’s disappointing in that he’s been a good servant. That said he’s not irreplaceable. Good luck to the lad Agreed Nick, he’s a very good player but for me didn’t score enough and is replaceable. Tommy knows what he’s doing I’m sure...and there’s plenty of time to bring in some quality replacements...

Re: Player of the year vote - now open

Little Thommo gets my vote although it could have gone to one of a few. My “mini season” player of the year would go to Styche, but Pears and Heaton have also been superb.

Bradford PA Roll Call

I reckon I’ll be ok first half Adam...but in the second half the pre-match chicken madras will start to take its toll! God help anyone stood within 50 yards of me tomorrow..it won’t be pleasant!

Re: Styche is our new striker!

Have to agree with Quakerman on this one. We came back into the game second half against York but first half they battered us and should have been 4-0 up if it wasn’t for some of the worst finishing I’ve seen in years. Time to focus on the positives now...the 3 signings TW has brought in all seem pr...

Re: Mark Beck

Even with Beck fit we still need another forward. We’re wafer thin in that department and unfortunately both Carts and Saunders rarely look like scoring. Until we bring in a decent forward I’m struggling to see where our next wins coming from (hope I’m wrong tho).

Re: Beck

We’re crying out for a natural goal scorer upfront and Beck doesn’t provide that. Hopefully Tommy will bring in a couple of good forwards sooner rather than later as we can’t carry on relying on goals from the opposition defender or wind assisted free kicks. I wouldn’t lose much sleep if Beck left. ...

Nuneaton Town v Darlington Match Thread

We need two centre forwards ASAP as Cartman and Beck have been firing blanks for far too long. Harvey huffs and puffs but rarely scores and a loan deal for him should do him good as he’s not quite ready. Unless we strengthen upfront we’re not going to be winning many games so hopefully the new man (...

Re: Curzon Aston v Darlington match thread

We need to get shot of Beck, Cartman and Tommo and bring in a forward line that can find the net. This must be the most powder puff set of forwards in the league.

1) How many more players is he hoping to bring in and what positions are a priority.
2) Why the u-turn with Liam Hatch. On the transfer list last season yet one of the first to put pen to paper this season (delighted we signed him BTW).

Playing players in their wrong positions cost us promotion last season and it's increasingly worrying that Gray hasn't by the looks of things learned from those mistakes. Brown should only be played as centre half (he's not a full back and definitely not a central midfielder) and Hatch should only b...
