Re: Any new faces

Maybe we can get an acadamy player on loan from one of the big 3 north east clubs, one who can at least run down the wing and cross the ball. South Shields will slaughter us if we don't do something. Another thing, is Tommy fully fit or are we looking at a loanee replacement? Looked painful on Satu...

Re: Darlington v Alfreton 10/02/24

With just 8 home games left, it is really important we get a good run of home form going. The last one, when we beat Hereford was more like it, and we need more of the same on Saturday against Alfreton. We will have to see exactly who is available, but would think we might go with a back 4 of Griff...

Total now £16,782 and looks to have stalled a little bit. I've just had a look at the Official website, and no mention of the BTB on the home page. Surely this being stickied on the home page for easy access is a minimum basic requirement when trying to raise 30 grand! Previous BTB fundraisers seem...

Re: Who next?

MG is saying all the right things but probably the best route would have been talking to the board behind the scenes. Doing it publicly like this does have the look of backing the board into a corner. Things could be very complicated if others have already been spoken to about the job. His offer do...

100% this - no way Gray unites the fan base. The same can be said for Hodson too - far too many people see Frank Tweddle's book on us as their sole source of managerial inspiration. The only thing that will unite the fanbase is winning matches. The reservations about MG would be largely pushed asid...
