Re: Darlington V Hornchurch Trophy Quarter Final

Unusual for Darlogramps and I to agree but there is no way Campbell should be released. His best position is behind the striker which he has hardly played this season. His vision and movement is sometimes at a higher level than the others and got him into some fantastic positions last year. Our play...

Re: Darlington V Hornchurch Trophy Quarter Final

Didn’t play well today and same old same old when faced with a packed defence. Really like Sousa but he is equally so so frustrating! He could be such a better player, and he is good now, if he just released the ball to better placed players At times. Guess that’s why he is at this level. Think we n...

Re: Wealdstone match thread

Well if that happens to be our last match of the season then it was a great sign off. Everyone played well and we made another team from division above look poor. Storey has made a big difference in defence and and Rivers saves his best for cup matches. Hope Charman is not as bad as it looks as he l...

Re: Weymouth V Darlington FC FA Trophy

Hunt, Hatfield and McGuire’s best games of the season for me. Saltmer never made a save from memory and we missed a couple of sitters to make game safe. Storey did what he does for me, same as last year, you don’t really notice him but makes the defence stronger. Great all round team performance wit...

Re: Farsley coverage

Think most views at moment are that we need 3 in midfield which I agree with. Atkinson hasn’t had a run in the holding role. AA said that Atk was excellent for Blyth in that role, protecting the back 4 and reading the game. I would say give him a go for a few games and free up Hatfield particularly ...

Re: Farsley coverage

Our delivery of the ball into the box was absolutey appalling. No wonder we aren't a threat. Did we even try to cross the ball? If we have it out wide we just cut inside and then pass it nowhere. Teams are happy for us to have the ball as they know they can easily defend our threat in the final thi...

Re: Darlington V Telford

Just repeat my words after Boston. Outfought, no physicality and actually don’t Look as fit as the opposition. Every second half we fade out of the game. Not rocket science how to beat us it is, be physical, press us and watch out for the little one twos around the edge of box.

Best team comfortable winners, we have been poor tonight. Love what AA is doing but we do
lack physicality when faced with a strong well organised team who press all game long. Fitter and stronger all over the park unfortunately. Type of team that always do well in this division.
