Re: Darlington V Boston

Campbell V Styche anyone? Two very different type of players but on reflection is Styche such a big miss? Yes, when he was in the right mood he did score the odd solo special and power his way through on goal, but after his call up last season he didn’t seem to look anything that good. Campbell mean...

Didn’t last long! I think he may need to make a sideways step. Youth coach perhaps?

What's really impressed me about O'Neill during his loan spell so far is his attitude. He has obviously decided to get the most from his time with us and to grasp the opportunity for valuable experience in a completely different world to what he has been used to.
Agreed.

Re: Tommy Wright Stratford manager

Some people are suited to football management, others not. What kind of player you were seems to have no bearing on this. If we say that there are 7 good leagues in England (that's including 3 National leagues) this means that there are less than 175 pro standard managers in our country - so quite a...

Re: Alfreton V Darlington

"Victory for football" Bedaledarlo's infamous line from years ago - :) But it's a good point, we wanted to play football, they wanted to get stuck in as much as possible, break the game up, commit niggly fouls and nasty fouls too. Saturday was a huge change from the previous home game V York.

Re: Alfreton V Darlington

The fact that Alfreton played midweek was pivotal here. Halfway through the second half they visibly faded and couldn’t maintain their hard physical tactics. Credit to our players who kept on going, as it was a bruising encounter. Also, what is going on at Alfreton. Their support was terrible for a ...

One thing I would like to add is that Raj Singh (previous chairman and mostly to blame for our demise) attempted to buy his way back into DF...

No, you're still wrong. York will be top three at least. No way they don't make the playoffs.

I agree, they can afford to strengthen later on in the run, they have a good manager, failure this season is not on the agenda.

I’d disagree. They were clinical is both boxes which is what wins you matches and leagues. We’re great until we get to both boxes.
Not only that, the finances to bring in some new/fresh players for the last part of the season, to see the job through. Like Gray used to do with us.

Re: Darlo v York

After watching York last week I was optimistic about this game, but on reflection, we haven’t got Southport’s big beast defenders and who’s going to score our goals?

A good all round team performance is a must today.
