Re: Disappointed to see Gray go

I'm obviously in a minority on here, but I'm not disappointed that Gray has gone. Clearly on the pitch, things have not been going well and it's time for Gregan and Atkinson to restore our fortunes, whilst playing more attractive football. It feels like a spelk has been removed, to me. I feel quite...

Re: £10 admission v Stockport...

for Premiership/Championship ST holders. Glad the club are trying something to improve attendances, and I understand the reasoning. However, £10 in for everyone would be much better in my opinion. It's never like that an Non League Days though - it's purely to entice ST holders at local big clubs t...

Re: Gray gone

It's already been announced that Brian Atkinson and Sean Gregan will look after the first team until the end of the season so this isn't an earthquake as far as we're concerned.

I'm feeling a lot better about things now Gray's gone.

Good luck to them both.

Come on Darlo!

Paul Thomas is the Youth setup manager. We have 16 teams now. We can recruit from where we like - don't know if any came from MGFA. May have done, but it's not tied to that business.

Also unless MGFA is an actual sponsor of the club then I hope we remove his logo from the front page of the official site without delay.

Our Youth setup has nothing to do with MG's Football Academy.

One is our youth setup, the other is a private business.

Re: Curzon Aston v Darlington match thread

Martin needs to re-set his sights. He's always talking about taking things one game at a time but he also needs to take things one season at a time. The DFCSG Board also need to deploy a way to engage the members better to give all of us owners the opportunity to bolster them with our constant suppo...

Re: We hit the community share target

Great news! I saw it said 100% funded when I glanced at it yesterday but wasn't sure if it was for real or just a glitch which had occurred when the deadline passed.

Thanks for the confirmation.

Re: Revised fundraising target

All done. Now need to move on to the roof, 50k is a lot to raise but we have to start somewhere. Darlo fans have already raised 153.5k since May and that removes the 10k Singh gave us. Yep, well done to everyone who's contributed. Let's keep it going and "RAISE THE ROOF"! http://mydarlo.co.uk/img/s...

I'm guessing the number of replies was not lots?

I'd help if I could but it's a bit far for me - hopefully there'll be one or two people on here who can help. I'll also put it out on FB/Twitter for you.

Can't take up much time - it's not like there's a new poster after every home game.
