Re: Atkinson and Gregan gone

What we need as much as anything is to hope someone comes forward to support the board as if the CEO also leaves, which is likely, we essentially have one man with support from the supporters group running the whole club. Pretty stressful for sure given the current challenges and he is to be applaud...

Re: Who would you like to see take over?

Why are we inviting CV,s for goodness sake. Surely any well run club should be drawing up a short list and pro actively approaching them starting with first choice, and please don't say you can,t do that! The board like us must have guessed that Gray may disappear at some point, and should have been...

Re: Atkinson and Gregan gone

And there we have it, like I said a couple of days ago to all those who thought it for the best and good riddance to Gray, good riddance to talk of investment etc etc . Club unstable and a laughing stock yet again......no manager, no coaches, no plan, no stand, no money.......and soon no best player...

Re: Compensation from Gray breaking contract?

Just watched it again and don't get a lot of these comments. Basically, everything he said was right and think deep down we all knew it and in fact it has basically happened. I.e. No investor = club gone as far as we can. In fact he got applause throughout and a standing ovation so guess from that t...

Re: Disappointed to see Gray go

Agree with some of what you said but : 1. We will not maintain an average of 1500 if mid table for 3-5 yrs. 2. We cannot continue to develop BM by continuously asking the fans for huge amounts. 3. If "succeeding " under fan ownership is " establishing ourselves as a mid table side over a few years" ...

Disappointed to see Gray go

I absolutely know that many fans feel similar to myself, it's just the vast proportion don't involve themselves on here, so please do not say we are in the minority. In any event we are all entitled to our view. In my view, Gray leaving has put us exactly where we worried we would end up, that is, o...

Re: Curzon Aston v Darlington match thread

Bottom line is that Gray is at fault for not improving the team AT ALL during the summer and giving new contracts to players not good enough. Every single year he has brought in 2/3 players straight into the team better than what we had even though a great season last time. Right from N league throu...

Re: Curzon Aston v Darlington match thread

Team suggests that Thompson playing up front again....! Haven't seen him have one decent game there in any season, but woeful up front this one! Why keep signing players if they are not better than we have already! Mendes should be starting surely or why sign him? Mind you, hope I,m wrong and he get...

Re: Revised fundraising target

All this energy scratching around for 0.50p ,s in buckets etc etc. How the next round of money will be raised who knows, but it just shows again that the amount we can continuously raise in this way has just about run its course. Unfortunately, it's the same people, who are getting fewer as well, an...

Re: Darlington FC V South Shields Match Thread

So if we wondered whether this team had reached its level, I think we now know it has. To be outplayed, outfought and outhought by a team 2 leagues below is embarrassing. 3-0 didn't really do the Balance of the game justice! A lot of today must be blamed on gray. Why play 4-5-1 with Only one half fi...

Re: Chorley v Darlington

Completely agree about the bigger picture, that we are unlucky this season with injuries and that Martin Gray is hurting like we are, no doubt. But why won't anybody ask him the questions we are all struggling with, e.g. Signing players then letting them go, signing Wheatley and not playing him even...

Re: Fewster signs for Spenny

Seems like a mess to me! Sign new players then get rid of them without them really playing. Fenwick. Richards New contracts for players then send them on loan without any real game time. Cartman. Wearmouth. Rumour of player now not allowed to play by his employer! Bartlett. Include a player in team ...

Re: Darlington FC V Spennymoor match thread

Thought we were completely one dimensional yet again. Agree with some of the Spennymoor fans unfortunately who were saying we have become a long throw, set piece, long ball team who are awful to watch! If Beck out of sorts then so are we! I know Gray will say that it has served us well over a few se...

Facts say it all unfortunately

Against the best two teams we have played 5 lost 5 scored no goals and lets be honest not even had many shots on goal. Bottom line is that this team will continue to do well against most teams, but are lacking in terms of ability to match the best. Lets face it, these two teams were simply MUCH bett...
