Re: Southport Highlights

the yellow card he gave Donawa was a poor decision. We had a good view of this. It was clearly a foul/yellow card. The Donawa was a foul and the yellow is debatable. I think the frustration for me was that the Liddle challenge went unpunished, the challenge on Bascombe went unpunished and the fact ...

Re: Curzon Ashton v Darlo

With Thommo no available for Southport game, perhaps a chance to play O'Neill & Campbell as a front pair in a 4-4-2? What you mean like we did on Saturday when Thompson played on the left and Rivers on the right? Looked like a 4-4-2 to me, but people are convincing themselves it was a 4-2-3-1 just ...

Re: The Areana

Downside is it is horrific, nearly killed the club on more than one occasion, not fit for purpose, may lead to a further reduction in crowd and many more reasons I can’t be bothered to add. The difference is that if we move back as tenants, we won't be responsible to the overall costs of the stadiu...

Re: Saturday

Two enforced changes: Trotman out: Watson in and swap full backs Holmes out: O'Neill in I’d like to see Atkinson in with Hatfield, that Holness/Hatfield partnership is very poor when we are in possession. They are both very frantic and like a dog with a balloon when they have the ball. I’d also lik...

Re: Gateshead game...

Thought Liddle and Thompson were very good last night. Loved Liddle's drive and determination. There's plenty of positives to go with some negatives. Just like the start of every season. There's things that have gone well and things we need to work on. I have worries that teams scout us and then pla...

Re: Farsley V Darlington Match Thread

In terms of excuses, the pitch and refs didn’t help. We should of had a free kick for a blatant block on rivers leading to their first goal. In term of individuals there were question marks over a few but thought Hatfield was great, Campbell showed plenty and had the pitch ran as it should he would ...

Campbell’s situation is very similar to that of Mark Beck’s when we signed him. Been in the football league, bereft of confidence, previous club fans not saying very positive things about him, him dropping down a few levels to look to resurrect his career. Turned out that Beck was actually an outst...

Re: Expectations 19/20

at the moment, I'm not too worried by a goalscorer. With this formation, the responsibility for scoring isn't solely on Campbell. He will be expected to score 10-15, but I think Rivers, Thompson and Holmes will also expect to be at about the same. The way they interchange their positions, the defens...

I think it'd take a long time for Josh to get back to where he was. Remember it's a player that has barely played since he played for us. Will be difficult to get himself back in shape, unless he goes somewhere where he is guaranteed first team football

Re: Darlington away vs Bishop Auckland

I agree with an earlier post about Glover. I felt that 80% of his play was very good. Even made a couple of great forward runs but the did give the ball away which left us exposed 2/3 times. Once because he waited for the ball rather than going to it, which Armstrong was fuming about. It gave them c...

If we were to build anything at BM (and its a big if, dependent on whether we will be there or the sporting village long term). If we were to build anything we should go for something similar to what Harrogate have put next to their seated stand. It's 12 rows deep and has a capacity of 1100. Only t...
