Re: Brackley V Darlington

In summary the 3-5-2 just didn't work. Attacking, Hatfield and Wheatley were too deep, basically was just a straight line of those two and the 3 CBs. They were happy to stand off. Then the ball was fired into the forwards, they were sorrounded on their first touch. Rivers tried to get at his man. Wa...

Re: Brackley V Darlington

At least we sold out prior to this! Won the second half. Just curious-how did Lambert do and what was different after half time? I always thought we'd struggle today after last week's monumental effort and looking ahead to being available for Wednesday. Onwards and upwards. Brackley took their foot...

Re: Second Round Draw

As you say, 3rd round, potentially so close. A winnable tie at home could genuinely take us on a tie that would bring development funds and financial stability for years to come. Should we not get a winnable home tie, I'd agree I'd rather go to the other end of the spectrum. Sunderland or Ipswich aw...

Re: Walsall V Darlington FA Cup First Round Proper

Great to have Connell in the fold for the game. Definitely a confidence booster after losing O'Neill. Think the players have got it right in their interviews. Nothing to fear, go down there stay in the game, if its 0-0 after 25 or 30 mins their fans and players will start getting more and more tense...

Re: Liam Connell - Boost the Budget

Re: Liam Connell - Boost the Budget

Sheilds dont owe us anything. They've bought our players in the past and they would only have been sold if they offered an amount that matched our valuation of the player. I expect nothing else from them. Everyone knows their financial situation. They dont need the cash. The owner is willing to fund...

Re: Liam Connell - Boost the Budget

If we do, it sadly sets a precedent for other teams to be greedy This, I'm afraid. Certainly want Connell to stay but we shouldn't be looking to be held to ransom for a player with 7 months left on his contract. Unfortunately, just sets a precedent for other clubs to inflate prices because the fans...

Re: FA Cup draw - Darlo Away to Walsall

Proof that for the fans atleast, the tv games are as much a curse as an excitement. TV games chosen, Carlisle have to go to south london on a friday night and Pompey have to go to harrogate on a monday night. Ridiculous trips for any of their fans wanting to attend.

what do we think will be the TV games.
Harrogate v Pompey
Leyton Orient v Maldon & Tiptree

Seem obvious choices but a bit more difficult to pick the other 2.

Re: Darlington V Boston

Performance and result sounded really promising from the lads. Another tough test and physical side, but sounds like we played to our strengths, got their CB's moving and caused them some problems.

Re: Darlington V Boston

Thompson also doubtful with a groin injury. Still a few options and in all likelihood he'll stick with what we had at Leamington, swapping Hedley for Watson and swapping him to the left with Liddle coming to the right. Had Trotman been around that 5-3-2 / 3-5-2 at the bottom might have been interest...

Re: Darlington V Boston

By the time Tommy had given up on Ainge being a striker, he was a fairly limited CB. No questioning his strength in the air where he won plenty of headers, but along the floor he is painfully immobile and in possession he often just hoofed it away in any direction. If you play to his strengths and h...

Perhaps worth noting aswell that Tamworth have to play Biggleswade on Saturday 12th and Rushden & Diamonds on Tuesday 15th. Before the FA cup game on 19th October. We, on the other hand, have the benefit of a week of training after our game against Boston on the 12th. Plenty of time for Alun to get ...

"Victory for football" Les McJannet pretty much summed it up on Darlo Fans Radio.

Yeah I noticed that on the highlights, certainly deserving of a yell...
