Re: Retention for next year

Agree with most. Would let Laing go and hang on to Trotman if we can, but if he gets an offer from higher up or ends up being a side celebrity after Love Island so wants to be closer to home we can make our peace with that. Tez and Thommo are legends but I'd be pulling them in and seeing how they'd...

Re: Darlington V Alfreton

Liddle will be a big miss for that long, a loan will probably be looked at longer term, but I'd expect Watson to slot in on Saturday or us to go 3 at the back if Alun is uneasy with playing 2 unnatural full backs.

Re: Elliot and Connel

I think the competition has really helped Elliott. You definitely need competition for places to get the best out of your players. Sounded like he was playing through injury at the start of the season but all of a sudden the obvious concerns about him being a bit on the small side for a keeper have ...

Re: Darlington V Gloucester

Fantastic return of points over the festive period and in a league position that we could not have imagined. Still have no idea though what go,s wrong at half time. Yet again we batter a team in first half and miss 3/4 gilt edged chances to make the game safe, then play like a completely different ...

Re: Darlington V Gloucester

Liddle really didn't look himself at Spennymoor. One of the players of the season for us so far but maybe we'd benefit giving Watson a run at left back and give Lids a chance to recover from any niggles he's carrying if that's the case. Maybe he just had a bit of an off day and was up against a real...

Re: An observation...

We were no more lucky than they were not to be 5-0 down at half time! They're an excellent side and will probably go up, they were always going to come on strong and have a few chances. Aside from the header off the bar and a great save by Elliott to deny a deflected shot, I think they huffed and pu...

After seeing the highlights we have nowt to whinge about. The ball had come to a stop before the lad took the free kick and the goal scorer was definitely onside and ran in behind while Storey and Laing were stood with their mouths open catching flies.

Re: Darlington V Telford

Was that a little bit of a retort by AA in the post-match interview, when he said Justin Donawa didn't impact the 2nd half one little bit. Markedly different words from saying that someone faded a little. Sounds like he's saying 'That's why Donawa doesn't start. I thought Armstrong was out of order...

Re: Darlington V Telford

The nature for those goals were absolutely indefensible, every one of them. And every time there's a game where we concede those infuriating goals where the centre of defense disappears and the striker ends up with an eternity to pick his spot one on one, there seems to be a common theme.

Surely just segregate from the fence near the changing rooms to the 18 yard line on the pavilion side of the open end so away fans can have those turnstiles without giving up the full away end.
