Re: Thompson hits 21 goals this season

The one draw back of a 40 or 50 goal/season striker is if injured you are fuc***.
We score goals from all positions and the bench. Much better.

Re: It is now in our own hands

35 wins is it now. Quite fantastic. Bizarrely with only six games left, three teams
still can do the double over us. it ain't going to happen though.

Re: Quickest season ever ??

I agree with your sentiments in a way , but if we are ever going to get back to a level of " competitive matches ", we are just going to have to put up with boring 7-2 home wins,boring 4-0 away wins,boring winning runs of 14 matches,and boring promotions. If we don't put up with this boring winning ...

Re: More cancellations this week?

And I suppose our 32 victories so far this season were gifted as well.
Nothing has or will be gifted, the success of our season is down to hard work by the players,manager,club and volunteers of Darlington FC. No gifts.

Re: CIC Membership

Going forward to next season when we should be in the Evostick,the club is going to need more investment. There is a huge gap in the amount of money people were prepared to enter into Crowdcube and the amount eventually put into CIC and 1883. Admittedly the Crowdcube model was not based on us being ...

Re: CIC Membership

Using some of the money returned from Crowdcube I invested two lots of £100
in the CIC. Never heard anything since. No great problem with that but the £200
is only a fraction of the money I originally invested and until I receive some
acknowledgement I do not feel comfortable re-investing the rest.

Before worrying about what might happen in 18 months time, it is crucial that we gain promotion this year.Another year in this league and attendances will fall off dramatically.
