OFC it was in response to Mister E's talk of queuing for tickets.

Re: F A TROPHY DRAW

My lad and I took 8 mates to the trophy final 6 of them have only ever seen Darlington at that game. It's been one game in many years, the Walsall game, that's caused some moaning. More than a tad bitter. And we really wouldn't run out of Wembley tickets!

Re: 20 years ago today...

What a day out that was. Cardiff turned up too when their cup match with Bolton was postponed. Huge following and we gave Villa a good go.

You'd have to look hard to find that comment on their horrible yellow and blue forum. I'm sure it's little read and we should be well used to being wound up by now. It's a bit like the tedious sign on,sign on chant the opposition give out on merseyside, at least forty years now!

Re: Solihull Moors Away - FA Trophy 1st Rnd

They seem pretty open on their website about owners, directors and stuff. I don't really get the animosity as the vast majority of clubs have owners and board members chucking money in. The draws exactly that, pure luck who we get and it seems pretty pointless guessing or hoping who we'll get!

Re: Threat to Ossett United & football itself

Whilst I don't feel as strongly as bushead I do wish Spen would set up his very own forum so that he and polar could discuss all things relevant to the PoD and their seven figure input.

Re: BT Sport coverage Darlo vs. Walsall

I think you should email the (our) club regarding this. Presumably there will be discussions about lessons we can learn from the experience and as you were obviously stood amongst the shenanigans you will have something to contribute. This will help to ensure a better outcome in the future. Maybe we...

Re: Will Darlo go for the hybrid model?

I think we should offer Spen a consultancy position as he's always available with advice and legal and financial knowledge. He's obviously a highly qualified individual as he's gone to great lengths to inform us of this. Eventually perhaps he could have a place on the dfcsg board as he appears to be...

Re: Flares /pyrotechnics

Banning "fans", bag searches, extra stewards - not sure what else a club at our level can do, especially as big crowds/incidents are a rarity. Maybe a couple of bobbies stood behind the more boisterous support/filming could have prevented this but hindsight's perfect, isn't it? When I go to the Aren...

We couldn't get there so watched it. Very pleased with what was said, DJ interviewed prior to kick off and came over very well. One of the dfcsg lads interviewed and lots of talk about Fan ownership and that the fans had raised 1.4 million. Thought it was all done very well and respectful of us as a...

Re: Darlington V Walsall Match Thread

What a brilliant night! Couldn't get there so a gang of us watched it on BT. Great to see the ground full and it looked the part on tv. Criticism of Thommo is unfair, the commentators were impressed and he was excellent. The whole team put in a fantastic effort and apart from one good set play they ...

Maybe singing/chanting, jumping around is enough without all the stupid antics of chucking stuff or yourself onto the pitch. We don't need the fines or the embarrassment. 99% of our support at Walsall managed to have fun without misbehaving.
