Re: Darlington away vs Bishop Auckland

Perhaps he was protecting him? Could see he hadn't physically matured enough, and throwing him into a struggling team would have done him more harm than good.

Think we’re gonna need a big target-man type of player for Campbell to work off of.
Armstrong has never used that set-up. Can't see him starting now.

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.

Re: Adam Campbell

Well he scored more goals and had a longer career than Thommo did at that level. Also, at that level, Barnet fans reckon Nicholson was one of their worst signings ever. Let's see what he can do at this level before comparing him unfavourably with fan's favourites.

I’ve only done it once for my birthday and it cost £35 for my mate and £30 for me as a season ticket holder. So it actually cost me nearer £40. Work that one out!

Re: Signings

Has Jameson become a decent keeper since he left us? He always was a decent keeper. IMO he was very good in the Evostik and competent in the NLN, even when he started making mistakes. Half of the fan base had an exaggerated dislike of his abilities. It's probably likely that he has improved since t...

Every call for funds taps into the same core people. Always has and no doubt always will. It's getting the other 700 or so regulars to commit that's our issue.

Chelsea fans seem to be wetting their pants with excitement over the thought of him being Sarri's eventual successor.

Re: Darlington's 'demise'....

The demise he refers to is in our no longer being a league club, and County Durham not therefore having one. That is true. He even says he takes no pleasure in it. Why every statement anyone makes nowadays has to be seen to offend somebody baffles me.

Re: Today’s Playoffs

I’m interested to see Spennymoor go up just to see how they operate - whether they stay PT or go FT which would mean quite a few players and their manager making a big decision. It’ll give us a very good guide. Perhaps a bit surprisingly, Stockport will be staying mainly part-time in the National L...

Re: New Manager Poll

What’s the fascination with Swailes? Granted he has done well with Dunston this season, and had a very good cup run, but there is a gulf in quality between the Northern League & Conference North. It would be a risk, especially if the likes of Armstrong, Aspin, Bower & Flanagan are interested. Good ...
