Re: Will Darlo go for the hybrid model?

As far as I am aware the idea of moving to a hybrid model was never based on using the cup windfall. This suggestion came entirely from Darlo Pete.

Re: Darlington V Walsall Match Thread

I've been arguing that Campbell isn't a centre forward, but people have been telling me he is fine in that role as evidenced by the number of goals he scored. So is the consensus now that Campbell isn't a centre forward?

Re: Darlington V Walsall Match Thread

The clock is a pain. There we were live on T.V. - getting beamed across the globe to billions of people and the Rugby Club clock says the completely wrong time, as per normal. It works but it is always wrong. Not an hour wrong either way but completely wrong, as per normal. Why don't they just put ...

Re: Gates

these areas in black (in the link below) could easily be used to expand the capacity of the ground by only 700. Easily. There's plenty of room. https://cdn3.imggmi.com/uploads/2019/11/20/8e25329bf5b9ec8d5d9d73412f76282f-full.png The original schematics are still here (below link) - i just doodled o...

Re: Gates

I've gone back and forth on the arena vs Blackwell debate over and over again, but now I'm firmly in the anti-arena camp. Blackwell's biggest negative for me it the water-pipe restricting development. I don't mind the clubhouse along one side as I think Blackwell could be ok if a deep terrace could...

Re: Gates

Increasing capacity to 4000 is far from easy. You can only build on about 60% of the open end. A terrace would increase capacity but you'd lose the equivalent of four rows deep standing in front of it. So you are taking about a terrace of 1400 or so, which is not cheap at all. It would have to be tw...

Re: Tough one to call....Wednesday's game

£36K for winning and a possible 75K for a live game in the next round. A win could be worth 120K for us. I think it's pretty important.

Re: Sold out?

Magic of the cup and all that. Oh for an extra terrace to lift the capacity. I think the capacity is 3,000 for this game. Read figures on twitter somewhere. Walsall got 300, and about 2,700 went on sale to our fans. The ground can't adequately fit 3,000 viewing spectators, there are going to be som...

Re: Full blackwell

Doesn't make much sense to give them the whole end if they're only likely to bring 50-100 fans. You could put them all in the corner and they'd have toilets, a food stall and plenty of room. We might have to put some portaloos in for our own fans down that end, but it'd probably be worth it if the ...

Re: BT Sport...

It may be a dumb question but where does the £33,000+ figure come from? I can remember seeing a post elsewhere that suggested that getting on TV would be worth £67,000, so I assume that the 33,000 figure is a split of that, but I don't know if the 67,000 is reliable, and the same for all TV compani...

Nicely put super-les, however at the risk of repeating myself, this good run of form has been achieved without the input of dirty money. We were led to believe this wasn't possible.

Managed by Curtis Woodhouse, rumours suggest he applied for our job in the summer.

Also game likely to be a Friday or Sunday, probably Sunday if agreed as the Friday is after our FA Cup Replay.
Why can't we play on the Saturday?

Re: Wright Out

Outrageous to call for Wright's sacking. In Tommy we trust. Who would you replace him with? He's showing signs of turning things around.

Sorry, thought we'd gone back in time there.
