Re: Has anyone played for DFC and scored for England?

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: Has anyone played for DFC and scored for England?

Mike Bassett played for Darlo and went on to be England manager of course, just after winning the "Mr Clutch" cup with Norwich.

So you're not done with this club then?

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.

Re: Ground share

The Arena had higher running costs than a sensibly sized stadium for sure, but the flip side to that is it had greater revenue generating potential. The 1st admin was surely due to the building costs so, yes, it was responsible. The 2 subsequent admins were due to chairmen spending beyond the club's...

Re: Franz Burgmeier update.

One of my favourite players. Not the best we've had but whenever we got a free kick 30-40 yards from goal it got everyone off their seat because he was capable of whipping in diagonal balls that were undefendable. Never seemed to be able to replicate the same ball from corners though.

Re: New kit

As was tweeted recently the designs were chosen from Puma's limited range. Maybe there just weren't any hooped designs different enough from the last two seasons (which were very similar).
I do like them all and have voted 2.

According to my records this is the first time we have won 3 consecutive FA Cup ties away from from home in the same season. 1936/37 won away to Halifax, Burton and Dartford. Next round went out 3-2 to West Brom…..away. Oddly enough we were drawn away 3 times in a row in 1890/91 without us winning ...

Perhaps we could ask for the games to be postponed, due to International call ups?

Re: Southport Highlights

Defender's reaction is to gesture that he got the ball, if it was a blatant dive he surely would have concentrated on that in his protestations so I'm assuming there was contact. Does look like Rivers was trying to get contact rather than trying to beat him, players do make it hard for referees.

Re: Owners Club

I think the success of the 50/50 draw has been that it is self perpetuating - more people bought tickets and the prize went up. Others saw the inflated prize and thought I'll have some of that and bought more tickets because of it and it's been snowballing. £16k I think is a fantastic success. Small...
