Re: Gateshead game...

I’m not too worried about Laings distribution as it’s clearly what Armstrong wants him to do. In the first half some of his long cross field balls did go astray but in the second half a lot more hit their mark, or were headed out of play which gave us the position up the field, hence win win.

Re: Halifax Friendly Now at Blackwell Meadows

To be fair the derailment of the thread if mostly my fault. I queried why I and later other posters on this thread were being accused of abusing players, when there isn’t one post on this thread that does that. At the very worst there is very minor criticism, but if anyone constitutes it as abuse, w...

Re: Halifax Friendly Now at Blackwell Meadows

Who’s abusing anyone? Some people have pointed out they’re not convinced by Bascombe, some say they thought he played well. Just about everyone has said he was at fault for the goal. That’s not abuse, it’s fact, Armstrong said it in his interview.

So does that mean we can’t have opinions on a message board however innocuous those comments are. It’s not as if I said he was useless and shouldn’t be given more of a chance.

Re: Halifax Friendly Now at Blackwell Meadows

Other than a 5 minute spell in the first half when he gave the ball away very cheaply 2/3 times, one for the goal, I thought Bascombe had a decent match. Always looking for the ball and played some very good balls other than that 5 minute spell. It’s the first time I’ve seen us preseason and overall...

Re: Alun Armstrong

Jameson was at the very best an ok keeper, nothing more. In the times I’ve seen him since he hasn’t changed my opinion. Good shot stopper yes, but his command of his area and starting position were always his problem. Unless he’s improved a huge amount, I wouldn’t want him back.

Re: Lloyd Maitland

I was only 6-7 at the time but he’s still one of my favourite players. I’ve no real idea if he was any good I was so young, but he’s always stuck in my memory. I do remember him crossing the ball over and over for Jimmy Seal to completely miss golden chances to score.

How about Graeme Lee, currently working with Craig Liddle with Boro’s under 23s. Didn’t he want the job before we got demoted, or have I made that up? He knows the area and would we have a good chance of bringing some of the Boro lads to us on loan. He would also know the best players getting releas...

We basically played with 9 men because Henshall is just as bad.

Re: Darlington FC V Kidderminster

Funny how you can view matches differently. I didn’t think Wheatley, Syers or Thommo had particularly good matches until the subs were made. Not because they played badly, but because the way Kidderminster played stopped them. Once the subs were made and Kiddy went for it, the game opened up and Sye...

Re: Blyth

We don’t actually need him to take corners when Caton is playing his corners yesterday were very dangerous, hard and flat. With Thomson taking it on the other side it frees up Galbraith to be in the middle.

Re: Blyth

Caton was holding his hamstring when he went off. Hopefully it was just tight, but if not it could be a few weeks out. Thought he played well yesterday and his crossing very good. He could still work a bit harder, but that maybe be being a bit harsh. As others have said it was really hard to pick a ...

Re: Current Cash Flow

I’ve already extended the 500 club season ticket once, but I’m more than willing to buy another year.

If it was an option not sure it would raise the £50,000 as we would need over 200 people to sign up to it, but it would still probably raise a substantial amount.

Re: Darlington v Brackley Town

I know we always look a bit creeky at the back, but there’s only 5 teams in the league with a better defensive record than us. I know I didn’t believe it either. From those stats the main problem isn’t the defense, but Galbraith not being at left back to give us a more attacking option.

At one the forums wasn't it said that most of people speaking that night had put money into the club, which will have included Gray.

Agree about Burgess and Caton, but Gillies is just too much of a luxury player who very rarely delivers. Although I don't know I would suspect he's one of our highest earners. If we need to ship people out to get players in, he would be high on my list.

Yeah, I saw the Chandler kick out, it was near the half way line right in front of the ref. 5 minutes later he then gets booked for stamping through Portas again I think.

Re: Match Thread

It's fairly obvious Gray doesn't rate Hunter as a centre half anymore, and so the only other option was put Galbraith there. Ferguson has been excellent when played as a winger, but if Gray thinks the only option we had was Galbraith, Ferguson has to drop back into his natural position. If Brown is ...

Exactly spyman, I don't think arriving around 4pm would be out of the question. The time spent waiting for the bus the players could have changed, the Darlo players did this when they were delayed in traffic.
