Re: Sports village

I still believe in a couple of years when DJ has sold his stake in his business, as promised he will help us raise the finances to build or rent our own ground and explain the costs to fans in detail, where in Darlington that will be is anyone's guess but DBC have ample land opportunities. In the me...

Re: Alan Walsh

Thanks Ray loved those four pieces on Alan's career, hadn't realised he got 97 goals in 3 years at Bristol City, was in league cup semi final and known in Bristol for his stepover "the Walshy shuffle" and hope we can get another chance to have a chat with him during a home game next season.

Re: Alun Armstrong article

Hopefully we can meet his aspirations of managing a team in the football league, I've said it many times and no doubt will say it many times more, I hope the Darlo manager is a success

No, not me trying to wind anyone up, but what @Bostonutdstats claim on twitter. I have repeatedly tried to point out the correct position to him. Any of you on twitter may want to correct him because the muppet doesn't seem to know the truth https://twitter.com/bostonutdstats/status/126671949917005...

Re: Big decision for Chester fans to make.

AS DJ mentioned in his recent interview there needs to be a cap or budget limit at our level, buying your way out of the league is short term and not what the NL & FA should be promoting. They need to grip the bull by the horns and take positive action. Unfortunately we know it is not going to happe...

Re: Boost the budget

I had a quick Chat with AA (keeping a safe distance) whilst waking the dogs at weekend he was blown away with the amount raised so far and could not praise the fans enough and proud of everyone donating despite not knowing when we will restart. Keep going lads and help us get to 100K.

Re: Isle of Man to join English pyramid?

For it to work I'm assuming the IOM would have to pay the ferry / flight costs for visiting teams. It's about 3 hours on the seacat from Liverpool or a 20 minutes flight from Speke. Yep that is the understanding I think. I think there are flights from Manchester and Blackpool to the IOM also. flybe...

Re: season tickets on sale

If that is the case then season ticket prices have risen. By maybe £25, I could be wrong... Ticket prices were obviously set and started to be sold before any of this kicked off and whilst it’s highly likely that the league won’t be expanded to 23 teams given the planned nullification of the divisi...

We need a run or we're done. I'd say we need to probably find a win at Gateshead, but to be honest, I think they might pull away. They had a slow start, but I think they're a better team than the others around them. I think we're more likely to catch Alty or Brackley. I'd be amazed if Kings Lynn bl...
