Darlo legends.

Post by QUAKERMAN2 » Fri May 03, 2013 6:42 pm

Just reflecting now the dust has settled on a fantastic week for the club, about true Darlo legends who have very strong feelings towards our club, and these 4 immediately spring to mind.

Dave Hodgson
Craig Liddle
Neil Wainwright and finally Martin Grey.

There may be many more but these 4 stand out for me,great guys in every sense of the word.

You can add Robbie Painter and Jason De Vos. In fact, it is interesting to see how many players offered good wishes last week and that is a testament to the club's great fans.

I think most of last season's and the Trophy winning squad had good things to say about us on Twitter over the last week or so - they've been keeping their eyes on us :)

Where's Brian Henderson in your list Singing Man.? Third most appearances for Darlo and player in the team who thrashed Chelsea 4-1. Just watched it again on youtube. The whole team were heroes. No tinshed yet,can still see the "mucky pigs" in the background.

Yep chuck them in there Singing Man, but no list can be complete without the legend that was Lance " I'll pull your teeth out " Robson. 4-1 up we were against Chesterfield and thrashing them, then the bugger sits on the ball in the center circle to take the piss. Final score 4-4.

Yeah, I remember not believing as the goals went in.
But what a night he gave us against West Ham.

My fav'Lance moment was against Everton,(the first year). West went up for a catch in about the 3rd min' and as he caught it Lance said "hello",in his usual manner!!! (With the big grin of course). Every time West went near the ball for the rest of the match he looked round sh**ing himself looking for Lance.

We will be playing at the arena again next season - fact.

Quakerz - if you actually attended games and spoke to people you might actually find our facts, rather than spreading s*** on this board.
