Re: Darlington V Altrincham Match thread

Great post 83...totally agree. Only thing is whenever we’ve not played 442, fans say ‘we’re too narrow’ and ‘we need two wingers to put crosses in’ and ‘players don’t know their jobs’ etc. You’re right about the 4-5-1 (although Syers was pretty much a makeshift forward. Remember he only switched to...

Re: Martin Gray sacked by York

My comment was tongue in cheek, I'm not anti B.A. or S.G - however a little point lurks behind it, the point being - if you really want something you can often find a way to make it happen. As far as I know Tommy Wright (or St Tommy as you named him) doesn't have another job, is he full time or par...

Re: Darlington V Altrincham Match thread

I think for Ashton we need to do what we did post-Leamington last season - go 4-5-1 (or 4-2-3-1). That worked really well, there was a good transition between defence and attack, nobody really spoke about us being over-run and our form after Leamington was 7-4-3 IIRC. Something along the lines of - ...

Re: Darlington V Altrincham Match thread

Well today was woeful. We had no game plan, and I can’t really remember any patterns of play going forward. In the middle we looked outnumbered, we couldn’t deal with the press across the park and they just kept getting in behind time and time again. Maddison kept the score down to 3 and I really fe...

Re: Darlington V Blyth

Obviously the initial reaction is disappointment because we battered Blyth and were well worthy of 3 points. BUT, that was a million miles away from the game against Curzon Ashton. We need to eradicate the error that caused their first, but I thought Galbraith and Burn were the pick of the back four...

Re: Spennymoor tonight.

With the greatest respect Spen, mentioning ‘snide comments’ when you speculated financial disarray not so long ago on social-media when we announced some form of reduced deal (season tickets?) really is ironic.

Strong rumours that Spendy have signed centre forward Shaun Tuton from Chester. Has only been at Chester for a week or so and was apparently on non-contract terms.

Re: Brackley Away Sat

It’ll be interesting to hear Lo’s opinion on Brackely’s first. TW mentioned about Maddison being stronger, but looking at the goal-cam it seemed that Ndlovu did a little more than just stand on the keeper. It seemed quite a clever way of freeing up a free-header in the box IMO.

Spennymoor put Taylor on O’Hanlon throughout the game, and then who marks Boyes - and the other lads that Spenny had forward?

Good performance tonight, 4-4-2 - feel deflated to concede late on, but we’re getting closer IMO.

Re: Darlington FC V Curzon Ashton Match Thread

I guess the hindrance with 4-4-2 is that it may leave us a little open through the middle. Last season Syers would drop-in but it’s clear we want to try and get the best out of Styche & Ainge. Either way I’d be tempted to go for it - if Henshall is as good as TW says he is then give him a start on l...

Re: Darlington FC V Curzon Ashton Match Thread

The first 25 minutes was good, the game-plan worked - Curzon struggled to pick-up Nicholson and we were exploiting the middle. Well-taken goal by Ainge who is a monster in the air, and we looked in control. The problem was though that we just stood-off and didn’t press (to be fair I think this is of...

Re: Tonight’s game v Northallerton

Is it possible that we just have two centre midfielders now? Rather than a holding and attacking CM. Wheatley and Hughes can seemingly both hold their own defensively and are useful in attack. As long as they communicate with each other I don’t see the need to have a dedicated holding midfielder. W...

Agreed, I think the key this season is that we’re going to have a much smaller squad, probably around 18 supplemented with players such as Vaulks, Glover and Saunders, which means that it’ll reduce the chance of players missing out.

Re: Tommy wants 3 new players

Nicholson has a solid record at NLN level - hopefully he turns out to be a good signing, and on paper this seems to be a coup by TW. Wedderburn fits the bill too - left-footed defensive midfielder who can play in numerous positions including centre-half. I’d take either him or Elliot, or perhaps bot...

Re: Tommy wants 3 new players

Nicholson is more of a left-winger or second-striker than a centre-midfielder.

Talks ongoing with a Championship goalkeeper, (hopefully Pears).

If Jacob Blyth does have a long-term injury then we can rule him out. I’d love us to sign one of Elliot, Chambers or Nicholson. I don’t think it would be Green, he is a very good player but he is a more advanced midfielder as opposed to someone who sits-back. Elliot seems to fit the bill, holding mi...

Re: Liam Hughes signed

Seems like a decent signing to be honest. I expect him to play through the centre, E.G, CM or behind the forward/s.

I think that’ll probably cover us in the middle with Turnbull, Wheatley, Hughes, Glover and Syers - providing that Wheatley doesn’t get snapped up at the V9 Academy of course.
