Re: Darlington V Kettering

Dont think they had a shot at goal Our goalie made a great save at about 30 mins. A hard low shot that was dealt with brilliantly - this, to me was a key moment in the game. Apart from Mr Q walking around the pitch in what appeared to be black ladies stockings :o Last kick of the game their player ...

Re: Darlington V Kettering

Thought Liddle was outstanding today covering as right back. I was doubtful that this formation would work with Campbell upfront but the front players look to link really well. Really like the potential of Donawa - love the fact he is not scared to have a shot at goal. Great to see Heaton back and h...

Re: Gateshead game...

A draw was a fair result.
In terms of Laing I thought he did ok, they was a lack of passing options at times so he had to play it across the back or hoof it away.
Funniest bits of the night were the Physio running on and the guy on the Mic, he kept getting everything wrong ala Alan Partridge.

Re: Jordan Nicholson

very good player - goal scoring midfielder. Presume he was allowed to leave because of the distance he would have to travel.

New Striker

I think on the paper the additions look great this season.
However, I think the only area where we are short (literally) is up front.
I presume Alun will see how Campbell starts and if things are not going well, will venture into the loan market for a striker.

Re: Josh Heaton

very harsh article on the BBC sport website about him - Stubbs got sacked very early on before Heaton got a chance in the first team, and then the new manager didn't fancy him so he never got a look in. I am surprised he hasn't came back as he is still young enough to get another shot, not doubt his...

Re: North Ferriby wound up

North Ferriby threw in the towel that game, they...

Re: Will Hatfield

Hopefully this will be the midfielder we have been missing since Turnbull left. I reckon the main reason it went Pete Tonge for Tommy was that the team lacked leaders on the pitch, in this league you need characters with something about them. Main area of concern is up front at the minute, do we hav...

What is clear....

is that we have been over paying for players (on wages and of course travel) and paying above the market rate. Alun seems more savvy and knows what a player should be paid in this league - all these players that have moved from Blyth have presumed moved to be on similar money at Darlo. I am wonderin...

Re: Signings

Hopefully Jameson will sign and that will be the goalkeeper no.1 position filled. I am sure the lure of first team football will be a big factor. I don't think it is wise or financially viable to have two experienced first team keepers with our reduced budget especially with the option of the loan m...

Re: Dan Maguire

I think we should forget about Maguire if York and Spendy want to chuck money at players then we need to walk away, we still are an attractive club to many a player at this level so we should be able to bring in a decent couple of strikers.

He’s a nice guy and I sincerely hope he does well there. But let’s face it, his career has been on a downward trajectory. He was in the Championship only five years ago so it’s quite a drop.

Exactly, like what Martin Gray should have done at the end of the season with Darlo. If your hearts...
