Re: The Close Season drags onwards, and onwards, and onwards, and onwards..

National League are working towards a September start for season 20/21.

I presume they hope we can get some people in the grounds then, which seems reasonable currently but not sure that would be full capacity - who knows.

Re: Farewell Tez

I’ve said before managers like to get their own players in and normally let players under an own regime go at some point - Gray, Wright no different. We are living under a new player budget hopefully DJ in his forthcoming netcafe can actually let us know what it is as a fan owned club we should be ...

Re: Farewell Tez

Tez has been fantastic, not many play 300 games and score over 50 goals, with 3 promotions.

I also think he has gone out at the right time as well, works for both player and club currently. The end of the old era, we continue to move on.

So up to Wednesday night, 235 shirts had been sold via our online shop. Not sure what we normally sell early on. https://darlingtonfc.co.uk/news/shirt-orders-past-200-already Also a decent deal if you want to by both at £74.99 - I am sure everyone knows this but thought it was worth putting on. http...

Wrightson I think would be a good bet as we went in for him last summer.
From my understanding we didn't go in for him last year, things can always change but not convinced we will be in for him again this year either.

Galbraith, Atkinson, Watson and Holness still without contract then? I wonder if Galbraith, as Captain, is being saved until last to be announced. It would seem odd if he were moving on not to announce that at the same time Thompson did. Whatever happens now we've tied down the core of the side whi...

Interesting to see that Alun isn't furloughed atm, as he is busy sorting out the squad for next season. he's probably one of the few managers at our level who isn't furloughed. What makes you say that? Pretty sure he is furloughed. I'm not sure Armstrong is necessarily needed to resign players who ...

Re: Thommo

Most if not close to all clubs are bankrolled, especially below the Premier League (also many of them). What happens if that outside investments stops I guess is the sentiment. In our case our budget would drop off by about a 1/3 if we had to make those saving straight in the player/management area....

Re: Potential new signings

Omar was always possible to return and still is possible.

He wasn't told he wouldn't be offered anything at the time, just there was no offer at the time I believe. Obviously the club has to understand it's position before they can move forward.

I see that Luke Trotman is not intending to return (on official website - update No.9) Thomson had a great partnership with him and I wonder if some of Thoomo's lack of penetration was due to Hedley not getting forward to support him as much. When Thommo said he was leaving, I wondered if Trotts ha...

Re: Thommo

If he's good enough for Spennymoor then he's good enough for us. This is a classic case of a Manager favouring players that he has brought in over inherited personnel. He's definitely better than one lightweight winger from Blyth (for example) and he's certainly not over the top due to age or fitne...

Re: South Shields budget

South Shields have a number of Academy coaches and that set up to pay for, they also have a food outlet outside of match day etc. that needs to be paid for.

I am sure they have big squad outgoing also but not the full £50k I would guess.

Re: Raj Singh

He could just keep hold of the stadium and charge them £100k a year to play there and then sell them the stadium for £1m if they could raise it, basically he can get some of his money back or they can go off and groundshare with Bishop.

As we know anything can happen.

Re: One chairman's view

Well he has been running the club for 21 years so I reckon he is quite happy funding them each season. Quick glance at their financial position and they seem in a great place, I presume he is another one of those good owners with loads of cash.
