Re: Spennymoor tonight.

Who says that Uncle Brad has stopped funding Spenny like? I'm sure that if he had done, then it would have been reported on. He made a statement claiming that he had put a 7 figure sum into the club, and that he was looking for investors so there would be less reliance on him in the future but did a...

Re: Darlington FC V Curzon Ashton Match Thread

Would agree with those ratings apart from Ainge who I thought should be at least a 6, and probably 7 for the first half hour.

He was winning headers that he had no right to get near in the 1st half.

Re: Darlington FC V Curzon Ashton Match Thread

Chester was 2,191 Hereford was 2,836. Both clubs it could be argued are similar size to Darlo and maybe in Hereford's case they could be claimed to be smaller. Both clubs started again and saw big increases in crowds, but when we had to "start again", in hindsight being in Bishop has cost us the opp...

Re: Former Players sly digs at TW on twitter

Unfortunate. Whilst I'm sure those players look up to Gray and think the sun shines out of his arse, the problem is that his "professionalism" and success came at a cost, and this cost became beyond what we could afford. The players don't need to worry about stuff like how do we finance success, but...

Re: Tom Elliott

Hopefully he can cover RB too. Pretty happy with that squad now. We only have 6 defenders, one being a 19 year old youth, one being permanently injured, and one often injured. I'd say we need 2 defenders. I know Elliot can cover right back, I know Ainge can drop into defence, but that's not ideal.

Re: Transfer targets for next season.

Regardless of where the money is coming from - that's a good signing that, it has to be said.

Although they've still got no one of the quality of Thompson, Styche or Ainge in their line up.

No, he meant the most successful manager in our 134 year history. But he isn't, as you can't compare winning the Northern League and Evostik League with winning the Conference, or Division 4 or the FA Trophy.

Interesting interview with TW up on the website, with Kev asking pressing questions.

As LoidLucan says, it seems as though Gray didn't feel like we were spending anywhere near enough to compete with the likes of York, Salford and Harrogate, and this is true because we do not have a millionaire backer willing to fund the club to a full time level. This is ultimately why Gray jumped s...

We're definitely part time, but last season we had several players on what can only be described as "full time" money, thanks to Gray spending every penny that he could get his hands on.
