Re: Darlington V Hornchurch Trophy Quarter Final

Fittingly god awful end to the season at home. Almost every performance I enjoyed this year was away from Blackwell Meadows . Ref was really terrible but at the same time I'm not sure we deserved anything today.

Re: Home Kit Vote

I would like a change from hoops but from these four I think the kind of hooped one is maybe the least bad. 3 is also Ok I guess.

4 is horrible and 2 if chosen would overtake the 96-97 soccerdome kit as the biggest pile of s**te Darlo have ever been seen in.

Re: Spennymoor Boxing Day

Difficult conditions. Thought we looked a bit better than we have in other home games. But still not sold that we have the attacking players for the formation we are playing. Hatfield looked at it. That is deffo our best midfield three if we are going to play 4-3-3 and also we have missed Liddle.

Re: Diego Maradona

In nearly 40 years watching football I have not seen a player dominate a world cup or ignite and inspire a city like Maradona did in Mexico and Naples. I can't think of anyone who comes close to him in terms of what he could do on a pitch or the impact off it. If I was older I might be saying Pele o...

Re: Away to Bristol rovers

Great shout from Makka Pakka. Four wins in the FA Cup is a great effort. As for the league I would like to see us try two up front in home games. I know 4-4-2 is unfashionable these days but have seen four homes where we have a lot of the ball and yet don't look like we are going to come out on top ...

Great cup run. Horrible afternoon but perhaps one game too far. Got to start winning league matches at home now. But as for the above posts I think people are absolutely right to question the selection. We lost 6-0 for heaven's sake.

Three points out of 15 then. Home games are obviously different in Covid times but bloody hell that was a hard watch and a long and very different season in front of us. Sousa was good and I thought Campbell was alright first half. Good to see Hatfield back playing and erm . . that's it

Darlo's best away kit?

As well as looking good yesterday, we also looked good. This kit is, IMO, the smartest away kit we have ever had.

I also liked a few in the mid 90s but what other good ones I am forgetting?

Exactly this. Darlington football club. Home of social distancing since 2003. I actually cannot wait.

In fairness to Armstrong he had to pretty much build a whole new team with not much of a budget and then has had some injuries to cope with. Listening to his interviews I think he can see what the shortcomings of the squad are. I like what I have seen from the some of the players he has brought in. ...
