Re: Season VOIDED

It's a tricky one but surely you can't erase history. Goals happened. Red cards happened. Pies were sold. Programmes were printed with info in them. Money was taken and wages paid. All this can't not exist. Whether it means anything in respect to promotion and relegation is a separate question. I st...

Re: Our banana munching

Im currently sat at home as my work place is closed and i won't be getting a penny as up to now from the government.. I can't claim any benifits as my wife earns to much alle...

Re: Coronavirus Blacklist

Pete doesn’t like all the other villagers- barring one he’s shamed them all here on this CV blacklist.

I wonder what the swearing cyclists said to him?

“ feck off you *** ** excuse of a ****ing ***t for brains ******g ****e*”

Possibly?

Re: Coronavirus Blacklist

I'd like to nominate the rest of my village apart from my neighbour, as we were the only 3 people applauding in the whole village. We plan to get out the pans tomorrow & make a heck more of a racket. :thumbdown: Hopefully Darlo residents showed more thanks than my village did? This is a blacklist P...

Their main initiative is the "leave it to Brad" initiative.

We should copy that and get Brad to keep us going as well.
To be fair the "leave it to Brad" initiative will be less of a risk than the "leave it to Raj" initiative employed elsewhere.

Re: My first game

Conversely my first ever football match was at Aldershot. One cold Tuesday night in winter 75. Did we have much of a following that night? 😆 This match in 75 wasn't Darlo related, I think Aldershot back then were in Div 3, and I think they got relegated that season. I used to live about 16 miles aw...

Re: Coronavirus and DFC

I watched Martin Lewis tonight. He was most insistent that employees who couldn't work because of this crisis can be "furloughed", meaning the Gov just feed back 80% of their wage back through their pay packet. He even told a story of a friend of his who had just been sacked. Martin Lewis said to hi...

Re: Season VOIDED

No derby with South Shields next season then. But derbies with Blyth & York, which is great. I'd imagine Kings Lynn will feel gutted, especially as there owner is likely too turn off the financial taps. Pete - THEIR owner is likely TO turn off the financial taps. You will send the Ghost potty.

Re: Coronavirus and DFC

I honestly believe there will be a strong desire for us to complete the season, and for that reason, there will not be a decision anytime soon. That said, I can't see practically how the season can continue after the end of June due to the end of players contracts and loan contracts. Some teams are...

Yes, I agree D.G. I agree with all that however there’s two things here to consider. This season, and next season. I think we can all agree that at some point football will restart, so to me finishing what has been started (this season) trumps what may happen in the future (next season) - bearing in...

Re: Coronavirus and DFC

I don't understand the logic behind voiding this season or not finishing it. Void next season, or shorten it. Then everyone starts out on a level playing field (except slopey spenny) and nobody can complain. Either way, one season is voided or completed to different rules, so why does it have to be...

Bit of a mixed message in the article in one breathe says null and void but then goes on to say Barrow and Harrogate would be nominated for promotion. Totally unfair if true. Teams would be relegated down to their present position in the league? This is completely unsporting, as we all know that se...

I listened to the game on DFR & when Farsley scored there was almost complete silence, so hard to believe that 50 away fans wouldn't make some sort of celebration noise that could be picked up on the radio. There were fans there. Stood up in the top right hand corner. They had a banner that read “ ...

It is still my view that this season will finish. To me you can't have a season that doesn't conclude as there is too much riding on it for everyone, and you simply can not have any kind of Statty type formula which is fair. Football at some point will recommence and when it does finishing this pres...
