Re: 3 players released

Can't we just have a poll as to whether to ban the troll that is "spen". Although there are arguments, disagreements,and spats between people on here, we all have the best interests of Darlington football club at heart. All except spen666.

Re: Boost The Budget 19/20

Again our wonderful supporters have reached the BTB target, still with time to go well past it. I don't mind admitting that it makes me proud to support this club. One good reason why this club did not die back in 2012 was the determination of a few dedicated fans and volunteers, and now we appear t...

Re: Pre season

Only way it's a money maker is to get a big club in at home, and just give them the majority of the tickets. We should've done it with Sunderland last year. The problem for all non league clubs these days is that big clubs send such weak teams to play friendlies against them. The 1st team go abroad...

Hardly been an avalanche of pledges since the news broke.Maybe the undecided are waiting to see what the quality of Armstrong’s signings are before diving in.
Been a hell of an effort so far though.
Now it is has been officially announced this morning, money starting to come in.

Re: Boost The Budget 19/20

It's simply a case of we hope to raise again what we did last year to go towards the running of the club. Raising 56k already shows that plenty of fans are genuinely interested in maintaining the year to year financial security and solvency of the club, not just chasing promotions. Which makes me t...

To grab some headlines, what about Theresa May? Think she may become free shortly, although probably not good enough to get us into Europe and could insist on a change of shirt colour. There would be no unity in the team, the left side would be at odds with the right side, and some might not even t...

Re: Today’s Playoffs

Re: Boost The Budget 19/20

Interesting to read that of the £86k pledged, only £80k was received by the club, so £6k in cancelled pledges. Not a bad fall-out rate to be honest, I'm sure some were people feeling they didn't want to put money behind the previous manager but for others it may have been a change in personal circu...

Re: New Manager Poll

Hebburn Town have just reluctantly accepted the resignation of manager Scott Oliver.
Guided Hebburn to 2nd behind Dunston this season after winning promotion last year with Hebburn, and 5th round of F.A.Vase.
If Chris Swailes of Dunston is favourite in this poll,why not Oliver.

Well, aye, if you replaced him with De Gea then we'd probably be top half.

But to suggest any single player has cost us a playoff berth is madness. We are bang average / gash all over the pitch.
Replace him with De Gea and we would have been relegated.

Tide of opinion seems to have turned against TW since the Hereford game. Looks like the last straw to give away such a strong position in a crucial relegation battle.
