Re: Scouting Report - Motherwell Game

I showed the highlights v Motherwell to a pal of mine, who is a next opponent analyst in Scotland. He said: "Darlington are really way off it fitness wise, even for a first game and they were also bullied physically by what is a strong but quite young Motherwell line up that are not as good on pape...

Re: Will Hatfield

Great signing.

We wont get bullied in the middle if we can play him and Holness together.

Re: Motherwell game

My worry this season, at the moment, is up front. Campbell wants to be a number 9 but isn't exactly tall and Thommo used as a number 10, again not the tallest. Both will and have been given the impression of first Xl starting slots and to me it feels a little like trying to shoe-horn them in. The s...

Re: Motherwell game

Great performance.Spoke to a Motherwell fan at HT and he said 7/8 of the 11 that started against Darlo would start in their opening SPL fixture. 2nd half had a lot of youth/trialists on both sides so hard to judge. Think we need another forward to assist Campbell. They had beaten Linfield and at the...

Re: What is clear....

One matter of note is that none of the departing players have so far ended up at a club at the same level or higher, including Elliott. Nicholson might, but we haven't found a taker so far. I think trotman will probably go, based on little more than a hunch, and that we tied him to a new contract t...

Getting a bit depressing this. Only 12 players, one of whom recovering from an Op and no GK.

We had Motherwell last season and although they brought a few down there was very few Darlo there so a waste of time money wise really. Sure it was a crap kick off time/day too.

Think should concentrate on away games, maybe 1 before season starts at BM.

Guiseley match thread

Couldnt understand why we insisted on playing the ball in the air and not on the floor.

They were like something out of Avatar so we had no chance of competing most of the time.

Did anyone else notice TWs body language? Was just leaning on the dugout or sat down most of the game.

Just watched the highlights. Could have gone 1 down when Ainge sliced a clearence and then just after we scored Ainge again at fault as he just seemed to lose his man,keeper made a good save. Looked a lucky result from the highlights in that we didnt concede at these times but sure there was more to...

TW - Learning His Trade

Last weekend I met some senior figures at a club TW was at previously and although they said he was a nice chap they didnt want him back. I like TW but I dont feel he will ever learn, he cant organise a defence and seems to see the obvious (strong holding midfielder arrives March) far too late. A fe...

Mixture of emotions, relief - that looks like we are staying up, frustration - lack of a CF who can finish off chances we create, pride - the club was saved yet again by the fans, dismay - over the management of the team. Nevertheless, have renewed my season ticket - must be my heart ruling my head...

Re: Relegation Watch

There's an extraordinary interview with the FCUM manager after yesterday's terrible defeat in which he lambasts his players, saying one-and-a-half of them performed against Nuneaton, some of them are only bothered about money and he'll be shaking hands with them and saying goodbye. He says if they ...

Didn't get to tune in this weekend as I was away - how did Holness get on? (apart from a dubious sending off)
Did well, looks a big unit who can let the others play a bit but has good some skill himself.

Holness looks a very good signing, just what we need to let Nicholson and co do their thing you would hope. As someone said earlier thank God for Thomo, just goes up a gear and changes the game. Support from a good 200 Darlo fans was brilliant. Was good for me to see Jackson get on as a sub.When I c...
