Re: The Squad FA Cup

Not sure whether Armstrong was being tongue in cheek. Some think he was. However, he's put the thought out there. I wonder if being live on TV might sway things. It's basically a shop window for our players now. No doubt scouts will be watching to see if they can pick up a bargain, and it could be ...

Maybe they think £10k is not an unreasonable fee for a goalkeeper who would guarantee you a play off spot a division higher than they are currently playing though?
'Guarantee' :shock:

Re: Hereford....

He did leave two defender's for dead with a turn in the box in the first half, but fired into side netting. Didn't see a lot of the ball after that.

Re: Liam Connell - Boost the Budget

A reasonable fee is fuck all, for a 33 year old who is out of contract in 5 months. If Shields won't extend his loan, or let us sign him for nowt - then they can go and fuck themselves and we'll go back in for him at the end of the season.

Re: FA Cup draw - Darlo Away to Walsall

Majority of FA Cup games these days see a below average crowd. Best bet for decent revenue is a draw and on the telly for the victorious replay. Would take a first time victory though.

Re: Burn Gone

If Whickham are paying him the same as he was on here, then the world has definitely gone mad. Having said that, who wouldn't take a lump sum payment if they could then get a job on the same money immediately afterwards? It's his last payday, he'll never move up again, and will likely not last long ...

Re: Burn Gone

You’ve answered your own question. We’re paying his wages, so it’s not unreasonable for the very least fans to want is for him to give his all for the club. As far as I’m aware, we’re not paying money to the 90,000 residents of Darlington, hence why he should feel more for the club. And there were ...

Re: Burn Gone

The reason he didn't play is the two managers he has had at Darlo didn't fancy him. He had a two year contract so had every right to stick around and be paid each week. He turned up for training when required by all accounts and done as requested, he just didn't convince either manager to play him....

Styche was mobile, ran the channels, had a trick or two, liked to run at defenders. Ainge could head a ball. Not similar at all.

It's really sad that the signing of a Darlington lad should have turned into this awful saga. Whatever the rights and wrongs, thank God it has finally been brought to an end.

Re: New signing

You already seem to have clarity though. Not everyone is in the same boat. I'm not worried about turning down a move elsewhere - not every move is right for someone. I'm interested in whether he is making himself unpickable, as you are suggesting, or is merely not being picked. There's a difference.

Re: New signing

Yep. Burn could really want to play but we want him off the wage bill and are forcing him out effectively. That he hasn’t found anywhere else is perhaps unfortunate but I wouldn’t expect him to quit otherwise. Nobody knows the reason and the reason I reference the Richards article is that it’s not ...

No-one asked for a statement from the board. However, do you know for a fact that it is Burn's unwillingness to play that is behind his omission or is it an attempt to get him to leave early.

Re: New signing

At the moment, by not saying anything, the inference being taken is that Burn is an unfit, uninterested parasite, stealing a wage doing very little. Perhaps the silence speaks a thousand words. As an owner, perhaps it's not unreasonable to know why one of your most expensive assets is sitting idle w...

Re: New signing

I’d recommend listening to his interview on the website. He sounds immensely frustrated, understandably so. Some have been quick to criticise because of our slow start, but the effect of the injuries must be considered because it’s clearly having a big impact. He also says he’s 70-80% there with th...

Re: Josh Heaton

For me, we don't use his pace enough. He makes any number of runs across the backlines, where a through ball would put him clear, only for our midfielders to choose the ball out to the wing instead.
