Re: Early odds

Definitely worth a punt for an each way bet. There's no reason (on paper) why we can't pinch a top 3 finish, but I say this every year!

Re: Ground share

Hopefully this time round we’ll be given the opportunity to sit at the warm side of the arena (the side where the seats were fading). I always wondered what it would be like to sit in that stadium and experience a temperature above 5 degrees. Fingers crossed this gets the green light, as personally ...

As well as a sign outside the ground we should also have some Darlo memorabilia inside the clubhouse to make us feel part of the set up. I.e. photos of former players...previous squad photos etc. The fact we have diddly squat sends out a firm message that there’s no close bond between the football a...

Re: Female managers

The problem would arise if the female manager took a fancy to one of our players. For example if Tommo was having a stinker but our new gaffer had a soft spot for smaller rugged looking players with tatts and a slight bald patch, would she really haul him off if he was having a stinker. Likewise if ...

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.

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.

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).

He obviously means two natural central defenders (surely you’re not that thick). Galbraith has done a decent job but he’s not a natural centre half in the mold that Browny is.

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.

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.

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.
