Re: Season VOIDED

Whilst in a perfect world the season would be picked up from where it has been paused, the contractual situation of players, staff, insurance and sponsors, etc, make it impossible to continue beyond the regular end of the season. With so much of the season played, I would have preferred to see a PP...

Re: New initiative by the club 'Virtual Tickets'

Three thousand quid in a day is a fine start to this initiative to support our club in these exceptional circumstances. As we are fanned owned Would be fantastic to hear of any Darlington players donating their salaries back to the club or offering to defer their salary until season restart, how ab...

Re: Darlington V Alfreton

I don’t get all of this should we/shouldn’t we /can we go up. You go out and try to win a game each time and the rest takes care of itself. Knowing Armstrong he’ll have no other objective than to do absolutely that. He’s an ambitious manager and if he was told to deviate from that I don’t like the ...

Re: Harrogate Match

I agree, came away happy knowing our team put in a fighting performance. Losing Liddle in first half a disappointment as I thought he had been outstanding lately. Team looked tired even from the start, (understandably so), even Hatfield looked slower than normal. Both goals coming from mistakes, bu...

Re: Interview with Johnston on Official Website

Red seats was always the wrong colour for us, why did George go for red, was it when he wanted to change the shirts to red and white stripes? It looks like the seats are almost completely bleached now anyway, so if we do go back to the Arena we might finally have white seats. Sunderland fan, wasn’t...

Re: Darlington V Gloucester

Looking at our results so far, we have already played 5 out of the top 7 teams away from home with Boston and Chester to come this month.I would probably take our run in against any others tbh and I think we have a great chance of making the playoffs.

Re: Club Statement

So why is it ok for Spennymoor to put their spin on things & we can't? Hopefully the club are just preparing a statement, to put the true picture of what happened yesterday. We don't have to put 'our spin' on things. Stick to the facts and those in the wrong will I'm sure be held to account. If, as...

Yeah, no issues from me. A calm, collected response is what is needed.

Spennymoor embarrassed themselves yesterday, particularly on social media.
Which was my point, and not at all a dig at loan_star.

Re: Club Statement

I'd rather the club took their time, processed all the information properly, than knee-jerk and embarrass themselves on social media.

If it all turns out to be a storm in a teacup, I'd rather we kept our powder dry.

Re: Mid-season review

An excellent post, thank you!

It also shows that if we'd taken 6 points from the run a draw and three losses at the end of Nov/start of Dec, with particularly reference to Telford, then we'd be right in the mix for 3rd/4th place.

Re: Interview with Johnston on Official Website

Unless one of us wins the Euromillions, we are placed between a rock and a hard place. Blackwell Meadows, for all its flaws, is a decent match day experience for our level and the current board of Directors have made the most of the hand played by their predecessors. However, to get it ready for the...

Re: Interview with Johnston on Official Website

I understand, if not agree, why there would be clamour for a stadium bigger than 5000 for commercial opportunities, but not 10000. The Arena is far too big, far too underdeveloped and far too restricted on what activities can occur. It’s running costs are astronomical due to the cheap materials used...

That isn’t the point.I think DJ is trying to move the club forward and create greater revenue streams.

The only option I can see for progress to the Football League is massively increase our turnover and revenue and I do not believe that we can do that as a fan owned club.

I believe there is a rule where a player must be registered to play for the first game to be allowed to play in the replay. May be able to get around it if has played in previous rounds?
