Re: Fixture Release

Why would "they" not want us to play York? Chance of us / York making too much money from it?

Re: Darlo's High Street

Why is the demise of town centres / high streets negative? It is only happening because not many people want them so why do we have to "fight" to keep something no one wants. People will lose jobs, but other people have gained jobs due to the growth of retail parks and on-line shopping. High street ...

Re: Rumour mill

Unitary authorities and counties are not the same thing. The authority covering most of County Durham happens to be called Durham County Council but that is just a name, it is not defining the boundaries of the geographical county.

Re: Darlington v North Ferriby

I hope it's off purely because of the wind. Yes if it goes ahead, I'd imagine a small crowd due to the windchill, which means it will fell like -6 celsius!!! If it is on, then I'd reluctantly go, but any floaters definitely wouldn't turn up. We'd probably get a better crowd for the rearranged midwe...

Released by York.
York manager, Alan Little, told the board that Gabbiadini was "past his best" and they decided not to offer him an extended contract.

Re: Darlington FC V Salford

There was no booing or hostility towards the players or management at the final whistle, because fans knew that we had matched them across the park and they had put in a good display. In fact around me the players were applauded off the pitch. I didn't see a good display. I saw the same flat, aimle...

Re: Extra security measures for Gray on Saturday.

I think the way Gray left us and took our best players, we should be able to vent our feelings towards him. Again, the way he left us was better than us sacking him.

Re: Extra security measures for Gray on Saturday.

I don't get the Gray hate campaign. What is it we're all angry about? The fans forum outburst? Pressuring the board to overspend? Being full of self-importance? All those things were there before he left yet people only seem to want to call him a "rat-faced c***" after he left. There was plenty of o...

Re: Paolo Mendes released

Sorry to break it to you Pete but Mr Q is actually a person in a costume - who may or may not have defected to York City. Hence the need to recruit a new person to maintain Mr Q's attendance at matches.
