Re: TW - Learning His Trade

Oh God please No! Another season or even part season with TW in charge will finish off our club. Falling attendances will not be reversed if he stays and before the end of August mutterings and complaints would increase tenfold. Look he tried his tactics and training methods had 18 months did his be...

Re: Boston V Darlington

Before the game AW still stays with his tired CB warmup. Was definitely a game of two halves, started reasonable but passing up front poor could not find anyone after 2 passes, Nicholson still feels he needs to beat one more man instead of passing into Thommo, Henshall was crap on either side, never...

Re: Darlington V FC United

Walking out of BM on Saturday and looking around you would not believe we won, no chanting no cheers, no smiling faces just sigh of relief and hushed tones of how the other bottom teams got on. This is where TW has took us too, unhappy fans, unhappy players( how quiet are they on the pitch, no bante...

Re: Alan White

As assistant manager and defensive coach he has been abysmal, pre match preparation of the defenders is the same every game, not keen on the zonal marking at corners which has been woeful at times and extremely lucky (due primarily to bad finishing) not to concede more and the new goalkeepers have t...

Re: Darlington V Chester

Stability comes at a cost, this season has not panned out for a number of reasons we all know what they are, we must regroup and come at it with renewed zest, and vitality next season either with or without Tommy, Having said that I think Tommy should get 8 /10 games next season to see if he's lear...

Re: Hereford v Darlington Match Thread

TO post in the Echo is interesting. He’s picked up on our defensive lack of shape and has singled out Trotman for leaving Elliot to cover right back. I see this week in week out and never hear TW screaming at Trots to get back in position. The lack of direction from the coaching staff is clear for ...

To be fair, unless things got so hideously toxic that it was unbearable, I don't see Wright leaving before the end of the season. And given only eight days ago we performed really well and should have beaten the league leaders, I can't say we're at that point. Of course none of us know what's actua...
