Re: Darlington away vs Bishop Auckland

From the highlights it looked like another good run out for the lads, really pleased with how we're shaping up going into the season, there seems to be a clear game plan and method of play which everyone has bought into and we go about our work well, with and without the ball. As others have said I ...

I showed the highlights v Motherwell to a pal of mine, who is a next opponent analyst in Scotland. He said: "Darlington are really way off it fitness wise, even for a first game and they were also bullied physically by what is a strong but quite young Motherwell line up that are not as good on pape...

Re: New signings and outgoings

Watson strikes me as an odd signing, as I think he'll be second choice no matter what position he plays. He never looked like a centre back to me. I think (hope) Armstrong goes with the 4-3-3 he has played before, as the wide options we have up front seem well suited to it. So Watson will probably ...

Interesting reading the notes from the Q&A at Blyth end of season awards. Tony Platten doesn't give too much away, but sounds like they're trying to build a case around the fact Armstrong failed to exercise the option in player contracts, then went on to sign them himself. Can't see much legs in it ...

Can any fans help out with a request over Twitter. A Worcester FC fan is looking for a program from our home game V them on 26/10/2016. Looking to commemorate the first game for his new born son aged 6 days old. We knacked them 5-1 so guess it would be nice to give something back.

Seems slightly odd considering we took the option on his contract only a couple of weeks ago.

Re: Leeds crumbled

The other interesting thing about derby is that their key players (in my view) are mainly loan players. Tomori (CB), Mount (CAM) and Wilson (RW) have been huge for them all season. In that sense they are kind of like us. Should they progress to the league above it may be less of a problem as their p...
