Spenny will have a bigger squad than Chelsea soon. One way or another there's sure to be some good players becoming available.
Yeah there’ll certainly be a few players available for Shields to pick up for a fee.
I reckon we will get Laing & Rivers, Spenny and Shields have big pockets

Re: New Manager Interviews this week

People are right there has not been an official club announcement as yet. However its on the echo site and twitter that the deal is done. Don't think the echo would report a not happening.it should be announced officially this evening. I’m guessing he hasn’t actually signed contract, once he does t...

Re: New Manager Interviews this week

Good appointment and he should bring a number of players with him, hope we keep hold of Trotman though.

Re: New Manager Interviews this week

Personally out of the names suggested I reckon it will be Alun Armstrong he’s unhappy at Blyth so will likely bring his whole team and a raft of players with him. The good news for me is he won’t want to tread water so we should see an exciting season coming up. Personality wise he’s more MG than TW...

I think one thing is for sure. Based on Andy Toman's outbursts, we can safely say he didn't make the shortlist.
His reaction shows whoever didn’t choose him for an interview was totally correct, even Super Les would agree with me we missed a bullet there.

Re: New Manager Interviews this week

If we are going all out for promotion then it’s AA for me. However if it’s consolidation then perhaps one of the other names that has been mentioned.

Re: New Manager Interviews this week

Presumably John Saddington is actually John Vickerman, the HR guy who's been running the process? Either way, quakersfan is demonstrating his/her anti-DFCSG agenda again.

Re: New Manager Interviews this week

Heard tonight initial interviews were done by Chris Stockdale, John Saddington and Jon Woolnough, not sure when DJ will be involved, possibly 2nd interviews. Very clear though that the DFCSG are in full control of the recruiting process.

Re: 3 players released

Hopefully scope for the new manager to bring in a decent amount of players plus loans. The defence does need sorting out as our goals against column was shocking last year however it improved towards the end of the season. We need a midfield spoiler as we were too light weight, hopefully we will ha...

Re: Darlington's 'demise'....

TBH what he said is true we were the only league club from County Durham but that was a long time ago. Without a Brad Groves individual investing money into DFC I can’t see that changing. Even with the BTB the overall budget I’d heard whilst at the player awards is going to be greatly reduced.

Re: New Manager Interviews this week

I’d like Armstrong or Bower, but I think we’ll get Kelly & McGurk from Hyde or Clark. A tense and speculative week or two ahead! Know ones knows but to me Armstrong has the experience but quite old school. McGurk has less experience than Tommy and messed the last interview panel around apparently. ...

Re: Owners Club

Not if you market it properly, £20 is just to cheap even if you suggest we lose 500 members which I don’t think you will the 300 x £200 = £60k but sell it as DFC Owners Club.

Had a few beers tonight with friends in Hole in The Wall at an end of season round up as we always do with a number of DFCSG members and 500 club members. Rather than BTB why not set up an owners club and offer some incentives. At present there are approx 800 members I believe, instead of the £20 su...

I’d also be happy with a female manager if they were right for the job and there were lots of female choice but I just can’t see it happening.

He will paid whatever his contract states he’s due. Not sure as fans we need to know the finer details. John Vickerman is an HR professional so he will play it by the book.

Re: Atmosphere today (Leaminngton)

It just had that end of season feel to the game. Having said that hospitality was rammed the guy from Texas was there with about 20 guests. Tommy got a round of applause when he came up but very telling no Directors around to wish him well.
