Re: Josh Heaton

I fear the answer may be to risk a scratch team in the fa Cup and try to get some players fit over the next two weeks. Absolutely not. The league season is over as far as play-offs are concerned, and I'm not too worried about relegation (at the moment). What we desperately need is an influx of cash...

No, you're still wrong. York will be top three at least. No way they don't make the playoffs.

Re: Josh Heaton

Perhaps AA could clarify whether Burn has shown any interest or not in getting fit and playing. At least then we'd know whether all these comments are based on some evidence, or just baseless slagging. Always had a mistake in him when he played last season, but then, so have all those who've played ...

Re: Ben Hedley

It depends who is available within budget I guess. Exactly - you can't just magic up an experienced right back within budget at short notice. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk Who said experienced. We've signed a not very experienced midfielder to play there. It would also let Liddle play in his ...

I thought I might look at Dunston UTS v Sunderland RCA in the FA Cup
Spennymoor v King's Lynn would be better, and only £10 entry for this game, should be over a 1000 AGAIN for this game, you could check the new pitch out :lol:
Doubt Kings Lynn are bringing 300.

Re: Ben Hedley

If you are going to sign a right back, sign a right back. Holness is a midfielder who showed he could probably fill in at right back - why sign another? Will he get in to our midfield when Liddle fit for example? If not, then not sure I see the reasoning. The Hedley signing was set up before Holnes...

Re: King’s Lynn

We were OK in the first half - maybe the better side - but woeful in the second half in which we made our customary defensive slips and were generally second best all over the field. AA needs a rethink and get Galbraith in as soon as poss. So much for team bonding with an overnight stay. We did loo...

Re: Bradford PA...

Because we had a lot of the ball doesn't make us comfortably the better team. They set up to give us a lot of the ball. For eighty minutes we did little with it, save a couple of set pieces.

They deserved the win. Had a game plan and applied it well. They stopped Rivers and Thommo, and we ran out of ideas until the gung ho last 10 minutes.

Re: Darlington V Kettering

Think today should put an end to the worrying about how we cope with injuries. All three who came in today had good games. Watson was solid, O'Neill was excellent and Bascombe surprised me. Thought he was outstanding. The quick free kick he took to find Thommo which led to Rivers' goal was brilliant...

Re: Trotman out for the season

We use the squad that has been assembled. There's options within the squad (Watson, Atkinson and Holliday) who can come in. If it's not working out then there's the loan market. All of the above before we think about raising extra funds. Who knows - a couple of cup wins may give us some extra budge...

Re: Saturday

Listen to Armstrong's interview. He says that he doesn't want them hitting long balls, so it's not his tactic, it's a player response to the opposition preventing us playing the way Armstrong wants.

Re: Gateshead game...

Williamson strolled through the game. First half reminiscent of last season. Lot of passes but pushed back by press and ending in h...

Unfortunately the bus with the usual suspects is apparently setting off at 8.30 and heading into the centre of Leeds where they will no doubt stay until just before kick off then turn up totally inebriated. This combined with a warm day and no segregation is a recipe for disaster, as we have seen i...

Re: Expectations 19/20

Gramps is right. Let's not get ahead of ourselves because we've beaten Boro's kids in a pre-season friendly. I hardly think that equates to the title not being beyond us. We look better placed than last season, but remember how far off we were last season. Yes, we've got 5 of Blyth's play off side b...

Still think we're lacking more of a target man in the team up who can hold the ball up front to take some pressure off the defence when needed.
Not the way Armstrong plays.

I see that they have already had one preseason friendly in which Cartman scored a hat trick. I wonder if Campbell has ever heard of a hat trick.
An example of the Darlo Fans I hate, and why, Darlogramps! Think our scapegoat for the season is already cast.
