Gowling MUST go!

A very, very dark day to be a Darlo fan. In a season of s***e we have managed to find a new low. No if’s, no but’s, no excuses, no ‘let’s give him time’. Let’s cut our losses, find someone with ideas and connections to find people who want to play for Darlo. We are now one of the favourites to be re...

Exactly a year ago we went top of the National League North - a position we flirted around into the new tear. And then……

Re: GOWLING OUT

In any other job, you are on probation to see if you are up to the role. If not, the employer has the right to terminate your contract. Josh seems like a nice guy but is so clearly out of his depth and devoid of ideas, structure and an ability to incentivise the squad. We are already becoming a joke...

Dreadful

So when does the magic of the new Manager kick in?

Brace yourselves for the crappiest of seasons. It has now ventured beyond embarrassment to simply pathetic.

Any team playing us now probably assumes they will get an easy three points.

I know some call me a crank for criticising the club - but at what point do we all wake up and say enough really is enough now…. Bottom of the division just 9 months after topping it. I’ve said before that I don’t want to hear that we are playing teams on bigger budgets…….. if that theory worked Bre...

If Armstrong felt anything for the club, he would put his notice in first thing in the morning.

Re: From bad to worse - AA to go

Spyman,

Enlighten me with your wisdom. Why am I a crank? Is it because I think we are being short changed by a manager who has no idea.

I’ve no agenda other than wanting to see my team perform better. What’s your agenda?

It’s beyond pathetic now…… there will be some on here that say we were unlucky and we are playing good football in patches blah blah blah.

Armstrong not up to the task

I thought I would leave it a few days - so my post did not look like a knee-jerk reaction to the result on Saturday. However, once again we have been beaten tactically by a team we should have secured all three points against. it was the back end of last season all over again. So what's changed? A l...

AA has to go now surely

There simply was no response last night. Unmotivated, lack of structure, an inability to make formation changes after going a goal down. We have not really moved forward as a club under AA. I’m not bothered about ‘steadying the ship’ or ‘playing within his means’ etc. we should be competing. I want ...

Re: Crumb of comfort

Interesting comments. Nothing knee-jerk about my feelings. Equally, I don’t think of myself as being pathetic. Just passing an opinion.

I’m trying to put a positive spin on the rubbish I’ve watched the last month or so. It’s a good job we had such a good first half of the season because if we were anywhere near the bottom, we would be certainties for relegation. I can not believe there is a team in this division as bad as us at the ...

Stood at Brackley watching another poor performance. Dreadful referee - but in all fairness we are making it easy for him to be rubbish. Armstrong sent off - is that the last of him? I’m watching an unstructured, passionless, aimless team that looks totally de-motivated. Let’s cut our loses - forget...

Re: Alun Armstrong comments

Sadly Jack Lambert isn't the answer to our problems......he is only a small part of an answer. There are too many players underperforming - and pinning our hopes on one player is unfair on that player. As good as he is, he is returning from injury. The impact will be minimal.

Will we even make the play-offs?

Could not make the Chester match (listened on the radio though). Sadly, I endured the rubbish at both Banbury and Kettering. We can blame crap pitches and injuries but the simple truth is, based on recent performances, our league position massively flatters us. Nothing short of 6 points is needed wi...

Danny Ellis - Man Mountain

Went to the match yesterday vs Leamington. Pitch was very dry, rock hard and bobbly. Loved the fact we still tried to play football though. Thoughy Danny Ellis at the back stood out for us. Nothing got past him - a quite brilliant performance. Starting to get a little excited at the possibility of p...

I was at Leamington yesterday and Brackley a couple of weeks back. Frustration doesn't cover half of it. I'm not too sure where I start? Since the first Walsall game we have been pathetic. Little pockets of decent play here and there - but a Manager and team devoid of tactics, unable to change the s...

A few weeks ago I suggested that people should simply stop going to Darlo until the players, Manager and Board repaid the faith shown by the Darlington supporters.

You go ahead and continue to spend your money on this drivel. 2 points from a possible 33. Today was Macclesfield. How deluded are you two? Get some sleep, it is past your bedtime and you have school on Monday.
