Re: Boston v Darlington 20/02/24

Sick and tired of saying it but we are asking players to play in positions that don't suit them. Nelson and Main would be best suited in a two up front formation, not all this someone in the hole bollocks that we seem to have persisted with for nearly a year under 3 managers, when it doesn't work wi...

Re: South Shields v Darlo

Just watched the goals, brilliant work from the team. No sound though, or is it just me? None for me & just shows what a quality job our Kev & the DFR teams do. Hope someone can step into these big shoes next season. See the club have put out a plea for volunteers to take this on. For me it should ...

Re: South Shields v Darlo

Good to eventually take advantage when circumstances went in our favour. Their fans were angry over the reds but both looked fairly clear-cut. We were ruthless as they tired late on but for a long time it looked like they might get away with a backs-to-the-wall 0-0. Possession-wise it must have bee...

Re: South Shields v Darlo

I thought it was disgracelul of Shields to shoehorn a few hundred Darlington fans into such a tight area of the ground. It was very overcrowded with very restricted views for most while there was loads of space elsewhere around the ground. Very poor from them. Yet we persistently give a full end to...

Re: Blood on hands/heads must roll

I’m struggling to see the improvement to be honest and that’s not meant as a criticism of SW, clearly he’s not the issue. The games against Kings Lynn, Southport, Tamworth, Banbury and Brackley followed the similar pattern we’ve been used to all season. Decent amount of possession, defend reasonabl...

No new faces at training tonight apparently. No Lawlor and Taylor too, the latter has posted a photo of some nasty bruising on his back.

Re: Blood on hands/heads must roll

How many times under Gowling did we bemoan playing well, but not really hurting the opposition? It is kind of happening under Watson now. Never. We never played well under Gowling. Every game was tedious negative plodding dogshit and I hate him for it. Under Watson, although results haven't really ...

Re: Any new faces

As I have said before, if we cant sign good players when we are top then what chance when we are second bottom? Not many players are going to commit themselves to us on a permanent deal when we could well be in the NPL next season. It wouldn't surprise me if Main has a release clause if we go down. ...

Re: Darlington v Alfreton 10/02/24

The defence as a unit, including TT, I feel has improved under SW. We just need to find the key at the other end of the pitch. Still no sign of any new faces which is worrying, seems like quite a few have turned us down because of our league position plus we have the bigger problem of Spenny and po...

Ahh I forgot the season finished in September! If the board were so confident in Armstrong’s ability to give him a two year deal then they were stupid to get rid so soon in the season especially if there was money still in the kitty. Even if Armstrong had stayed we would not be in this mess now, we...

Re: Blood on hands/heads must roll

You can waffle on all you want with your anti Armstrong agenda but his track record stands up well and we would have ended up mid table. Gowling was appointed with a poorer win percentage ratio. That is stupidity. Not sure on what planet we would have finished mid table under Armstrong. He had mana...

Armstrong went public last month making himself available for a managerial role again. That could well be a hint that the notice period had been served.
Where was this out of interest? Haven’t heard anything from him.
It was on LinkedIn, reposted with a nice bit of support from Hodgy too

Re: Blood on hands/heads must roll

We were fully spent up before Hatfield came in, that’s what we were told. I’m not sure where you think there’s dishonesty, DJ said again at a fans forum whilst JG was in charge that we were overspending. Clearly, nothing has gone to plan this season and the board have stretched the budget in attemp...

Re: Blood on hands/heads must roll

The bit that really grates on me is how DJ and the board reacted to Mark Beck leaving. We were told targets were unaffordable, expectations were dampened, and ultimately AA’s budget was reduced. At the time we nodded along but given the disastrous appointment of JG who was given a significantly inc...
