Re: Leamington v Darlington

It can't be coincidence that time after time we concede goals within minutes of making substitutions. At Leamington it happened again - two up, against ten men, we start changing the team and formation and fall to pieces. If it ain't broke, don't mend it.

Re: FC United V Darlington match thread

I think it would help if we relieved Styche of the captaincy. He's an individualist and operates best when he's focused on just one thing - scoring goals - and worrying about sorting out the other ten gets in the way. On top of that, up front he can't see the whole picture - he needs to be looking f...

Re: Coming up to the NLN next season from the EvoPrem

There's been a lot of talk about North Ferriby folding at the end of this season... if they do, how does this affect things? Will the FA reprieve one of the relegated three or move an extra team up from below?

Darlington Reserves seem to be putting in some decent results lately. Surprised they never seem to get a mention on this site, if only to spotlight any latent talent down there among the Wearsiders - heaven knows we could use some.
Anyone got more info?

I'm surprised and frankly a bit hurt by the reaction to my post, not least the suggestion that I'm an opposition supporter trying to cause dissension among the ranks.

Now we're more or less settled in at Blackwell, is there any chance we could get chapter and verse on exactly what our deal with the rugby club is?

Re: £25K Needed in the next 3 weeks

I was surprised there wasn't a plea this summer to 500 Club members to pay for a further year's season ticket (taking us to 2020-2021? I've lost track). If half of us agreed it would raise an instant £50,000.

Re: Darlington Building Society

The Morritt Arms has changed hands since those days, now owned by a small group whose other assets include, I think, the country/golf club at Coathham Mundeville. They are rumoured to be keen on community involvement in the Teesdale area, might be worth another approach?
