Re: Lancaster v Darlo Match Thread

We should also remember that it is not just the number of games but the intensity of them. The lads have had to play flat out for the full 90 minutes, often in higher than normal, energy sapping temperatures. No easy games, no spells in games when they can ease off and take breather in the way they...

Re: Bradford PA

I've seen Bradford Park Avenue many times at Feethams. We always seemed to stick 4 goals past them. Let's hope we can do it again. With Bradford City it was different. They seemed to be one of our bogey teams.

Re: Darlington v Stockport Match Thread

Just got back from the match; I thought this was the best performance yet, so far this season - hardly recognised us from the team that drew 2-2 at Altrincham on the first day of the season. Stockport really came at us right from the off, and I worried for us when they scored as a result of a dreadf...

Re: Darlington v Chorley Match Thread

We rode our luck tonight; Chorley controlled the play, can't remember us having a shot in open play during the first half. Most of our tactics were breaking up attacks and hoofing the ball downfield back to one of theirs. I'd like to report we were the best team tonight but we weren't. Chorley had l...

Two things might cheer him up: Darlo would have beaten England easily this week, and Alan Shearer's in the running for the England job; I got odds of 16:1 on him at Corals. It would hav...

Well this should start something off. I expect most will go for the Wembley final v Mansfield but I'd go further back to a League Cup match against Everton in 1969. Everton were currently leading the First Division, they had world cup winner Alan Ball in their side and Gordon West in goal. (We had T...

I've heard of it, and know it was an important issue when the club was sinking. Can anyone explain? I honestly don't know what this was about.
