Re: Home Kit Vote

I've been a bit of a moaner last couple of selections, 2 seasons ago when we chose the same design 2 seasons running (well I say we, I certainly didn't vote for it) and was it last time when an extra shirt was added after the first vote? I think these 4 are a refreshing change from the usual bland o...

Anything but back to the horrible black & blue stripes that appeared years ago...but then again I am sure some on here would have even liked that monstrosity lol.
I'm wearing that shirt right now, I wasn't struck on it at the time but it's growing on me now 28 years later.

Re: Farsley coverage

Darlington under AA have always played their best football and won their most games with a solid and mobile 3 in midfield, a relatively mobile back 4 and a mobile front 3. The team playing this season have not consistently had anyway near this solidity, mobility or formation. Best team performances...

Re: Forgotten New year day fixtures

Not one I quite remember but the stand-out scoreline from new year's day fixtures is 1930, Darlo 8 - 3 South Shields, League division 3 North. A hat-trick each for Fred Laycock and Jack Hill. Jack Hill scored 9 goals in 7 games that season including another hat-trick in a 5-2 win at home to York in ...

Excellent read. I would commend it to all 'owners'. So there you have it, Spen, in black and white: "thousands of pounds as a ‘signing on’ fee, plus a very good weekly wage" to play for the Pride of County Durham.
This for a 33-year old bit-part player, what were they paying their top players????

Re: FA Trophy

The R rate is lower than here in London in Darlington... I can't see why it won't be Tier 2. Tbh I think tying going to an appropriately distanced outside stadium to these rankings is absurd. Especially when retail is open. London are expected to go into Tier 3 aren't they? It might be but also the...

Re: FA rules on abandonment

Whilst I'm mot arsed if its played again or not, had the ref done his job properly then they wouldnt have scored the second goal so there would have only been the 1 goal in it with stoppage time still to play. You think in the 4-5 seconds between the players going down (which wasn't immediate) and ...

Re: Darlo v Boston Match Thread

Nicky Hunt’s welfare is the paramount concern here. For the record I think Boston should be awarded the game 2-0 and the 3 points. Can't argue with that, might have felt different if there was one in it but 2 goals in 4 minutes with 10 men was unlikely. Not sure the league will take into account ho...

Re: Swindon away

Anyone checked the Swindon goal for offside? The "squared" ball went forward, the attacker is ahead of the 2 closest defenders, only Michael Liddle may be playing him onside but the distance he is from it and the angle make it difficult to tell.
Didn't think the Rivers "foul" was a penalty.

Re: What the Arena should've been

If you compare the Arena to a sensible sized (8-10k) seater modern stadium of similar design (i.e. a concourse under/behind all 4 sides), surely the footprint would be close to the same size, the difference being the height of the structure which affects the building costs for sure but does it reall...

Quite like Rovrums. Never quite understood how having lots of extra empty seats translated into higher running costs though.

Brian Little played for us. We had an injury crisis pre-season in 1990 and he registered as a player and played for us at least once. I remember the players shouting "Gaff, gaff" if they wanted the ball off him. He played for England but never scored. Don't think he did. He once put himself on the ...

Re: Anyone know who this former player is?

It's not Paul Heckingbottom because firstly it is clearly Glenn Naylor and secondly, this match was played in August and Heckingbottom didn't join us until March that season.
