Re: FA Cup draw - Darlo Away to Walsall

Awful - we won't make much money and we won't have much chance of progressing. What a shame. Mind, it'll be nice to go to a decent stadium for once!

Re: FA CUP FIRST ROUND

Depends entirely on the draw! Sunderland at home for example would be basically guaranteed to be on TV I am not sure. The story is surely someone like Malden & Tiptree or Natwhich rather than us. They always go with the smallest clubs. Dulwhich Hamlet have a lot of hipster, media hype about them an...

Re: FA CUP FIRST ROUND

is it wrong i would take the bye and the cash? If not lets have an away game at a club with a decent attendance. We aren't going to be on TV because there are still smaller sides left in the draw so lets get the most cash we can. Depends entirely on the draw! Sunderland at home for example would be...

Re: Darlington V Boston

Ground out a win - we can certainly play a lot better, but it’s pleasing to see us being clinical and then keeping Boston at arms length. O’Neill is getting better by the week - would love to see his loan extended for the season. I don’t get the moaning about the ref personally - thought he was ok o...

Re: FA Cup Tamworth or Hereford V Darlington

And a damn sight worse than plenty of other draws we could have had. Long away trip against a team we will be favourites to lose to - hardly a thrilling prospect

If it does end up being Tamworth I’ll be somewhat more positive

Well, according to these posts we don't really have any problems so I fail to see why we are 17th in the table. :crazy: Possibly it's more that some people realise that this is a re-building year, there's gaps in the squad which Armstrong himself has said, we've had injury issues to some key player...

Aside from that, i think we can be happy with the contributions of Bascome, Donowa, O'Neil, Campbell and particularly Hatfield.

Re: Gloucester V Darlington

Well Cambell is a centre forward, and a good one at that based on his record for us. In a 442 he's effective, as shown when we play with O'Neill alongside him. But that doesn't negate the second part of your post as to the need for a physical centre forward too - a point which Armstrong himself has ...

Re: Gloucester V Darlington

Well, as much as I think he is a good player, Campbell has not proven he could do a job as a centre forward anywhere. The idea that he can seems to be an act of faith on AA's behalf. And a 1 in 2 record for us this season so far seems to be backing up Armstrong's faith in him as a goalscorer He doe...
