Re: Shortest DFC career?

Whelan definitely made it on the pitch at some point. From memory, Whelan made his debut at Dagenham, had a stinker and maybe pulled his hammy and got subbed off - possibly in the first half. Then when he'd got himself "fit" he did his hammy literally running on as sub from touchline to penalty are...

Re: Alfreton v Darlo - travel news

Probably more to do with Villa taking thousands to Forest, and County away at Lincoln - both relatively short trips and a piece of piss on the train.

I would think for us it may be a taxi job from Chesterfield if no sensible buses running.

Re: Relieved we're not getting promoted !

To not achieve promotion by not finishing in the requisite league position is absolutely fine and the way football works.

Re: Best ever Darlo players (Northern Echo)

Pawel Abbot was ridiculously good - probably my favourite player post-Marco, but the fact that more than a few missed Gabbiadini out of their teams astonishes me - surely a player who used to salvage and/or win games practically on his own cannot be worse than 3 other DFC strikers. With Marco, you n...

Re: Interesting opinion bit in the echo

It seems he's looked at the points tally and thought "that's relegation form" without seeing who we've played and how close the games were. There's no doubting we've had some disappointing results but the relegation reference was a bit harsh imo. You'll find he's looked at the performances as I bel...

Re: a couple more players by the weekend ??

Think you may have misinterpreted that - DF97 stated he'd be surprised if MG let Gaskell go and replaced him with a young un on loan. Implying he wouldn't let him go then replace him, rather than he wouldn't let him go.

Re: Who do you want as the next England manager?

It has to be someone with enough passion and desire to be bouncing up and down on the touchline, like a Bilic or Conte or O'Neill (Martin), someone who kicks every ball, celebrates every goal like it's won a tournament and takes defeat like a relegation. The next England manager cannot be someone wh...

The way he got back to pressure their lad in the late one-on-one was quality, made up a massive amount of ground when the rest of our defence looked like they were wading through treacle. Their lad got nervous, then got a bobble and put it wide, but Weldon forced him into that.
