Re: Which away game are you looking forward to most next sea

I'd quite like Chester - I went to uni there and it's still not too far.

Altrincham, Hyde and Stalybridge are all local to me (if they are still in BSN nect season) so I'm just looking forward to getting some more Darlo watching in next season. Hopefully Stockport will come down with us too.

Re: What's happening with Raj agreement

Can you two take whatever relationship you have/had with past/present board members and jog right on?

It's an important question but you're just stirring and quite frankly it's not welcome.

Re: Darlington v Ebbsfleet United Match Thread

I love that despite everything going against us and being lucky to have a club people still expect a win every week. Expectations are going to have to change I think. We're in for a season of defeats and probable relegation but as long as there's a next season I'm happy. Just be grateful for nights ...

I'd chip a little in for that next season - would be a great little story for the season opener and this is what a community club is surely all about. This kind of support wouldn't even register at a prem club.

Re: Youth team - next season

I think it costs around 150k, which is external funding which we will lose. Is that it? While we can't expect to sell youth wonderkids every year, at £350k for Dan Burn and ~£80k for Micheal Smith, can we afford not to keep it going? 150k is no small amount of money and it will be huge next year bu...

Re: Alfreton Town v Darlington Match Thread

To be fair, we've had very few players who have had tremendous upheaval and will be knackered (albeit they've had a bit of a rest recently) with youth teamers plugging gaps. I don't think games or results at times like this are an indication if anybody can or can't manage. Being able to just field a...

Re: Pre register on crowdcube and set up your deposit.

Surely it's time to look seriously at the possibility of setting up monthly direct debits. It is unlikely that we'll find the full amount to satisfy the administrator but a guarantee of a small monthly income would help I'm sure. If most fans on here gave £10 - £20 a month I'm sure that would be a s...

I don't necessarily agree with how it has been done or whether it is the right thing to do but I certainly sympathise and think Raj is within his rights.
