Re: Eindhoven planning

I had the misfortune of spending a whole day in Eindhoven while waiting for a flight back to the UK.

I would plan on spending as little time there as possible. And plan only to watch football, eat and drink.

Re: What went...right?

From another exile who hasn't seen any of the dire stuff or the turnaround until Tamworth last week. I was hugely underwhelmed - can't deny the turnaround, or it's apparent continuation yesterday, albeit against Ferriby but do the differences in personnel at Tamworth reveal anything else about where...

Re: Bradley Fewster

Worried that we're going all out for promotion with no infrastructure behind it. The fans have clearly run out of money FFS. Shoot me down but I haven't put anything in this time around and I haven't run out of money. I've been biding my time just to see how things pan out, so as not to throw good ...

yes, whoosh indeed. my attempt to suggest that, unfortunate as this situation is, this isn't a time to be too reactionary.

Re: Spenny signings

Personally not convinced Armstrong was in MGs plans for next season. I suppose my theory is backed up by the fact he left to play football. Your theory that we want someone to directly replace him is fuelled by reports we want a striker. Teams promoted from EvoStik Prem do not set the world alight ...

I haven't seen all these guys play too much so a view from further afield, which is never a bad thing.

Re: Match Thread

Bit of a funny game today I thought - not many chances, we looked pretty solid apart from the last 10 and there were some nice passages of play. I've come away wondering what went on for a lot of the game though - maybe we did just cancel each out pretty much. Very impressed with the togetherness, c...

Re: Liam Hardy signs...

In our situation, we should not be doing anything that is further deteriorating our financial position. If MG is able to bring somebody in by releasing others, juggling stuff around and maintaining the playing budget, fair enough. If he can't, but he does, and others at the club sanction this kind o...

Re: Pitch inspection 9am Saturday 9th

Trying to concentrate on a half full glass, rather than a half empty one, the jetstream is moving south and, within a few days, we should be in for a dry, if colder, remainder of January. It would be nice to talk about football for a change, rather than the weather. frozen pitches rather than water...

I think this is something that DFCSG members should be raising with the board as a concern and asking them to address and respond.

Re: Darlington Rugby Club Meeting 14/12/2015 7PM

If we have to raise the same income as we did with a 'rich' owner, then I'm not sure what the point of being fan owned is. We should be finding our level without having to keep fund raising to top up the playing budget. It is acceptable to fund raise to get the ground up to spec, to buy cameras or ...

Re: Barwell v Darlo match thread

MG hasn't worked out how to get the best from this squad yet. True, and that's why we're in a relegation battle - as you say he's just not getting the best from these players. Imagine if he got his finger out and got these players playing to their potential? I reckon we'd be top 5 easy - probably 4...

The weather is obviously the same for both teams at any one time but there was a significant difference between the two halves. We were up against it with the wind first half and at times even Barwell struggled to use it to their advantage - but the upshot was that the game was played in our third a...

Don't get me wrong TFDM, I'm not suggesting we get all clever about it. The direct, fast flowing goal is a thing of beauty and I enjoy watching it. However, let's say Watson's got the ball at RB and he launches something diagonal 60 yards because that's a component of a game plan the boss has given ...

Re: Hoofball

I commented similarly after watching the Halesowen game. I don't think we played a senseless long-ball game but we do tend to play very directly. My point was more that a swing of the foot was very often used when there was ample time to get the ball down, have a look and see what the options were. ...
