Although Cartman was my man of the match last night I thought Gibbons did well at RB. He needs a lot of coaching from the dugout during the match but I guess he is young, I'd hope this encouragement might come from the likes of Burgess as the season progresses rather than the touchline. Have to say it was overall a gutsy performance to come back and win. Would be fair to say Leon had a poor game and Terry got skinned too often but we have probably exhausted the LB issue haven't we?

Burgess got caught out of position after winning a tackle and not tracking back to get in line with White before the ball was pumped forward.

First half Darlo were a mess at the back when trying to play the off-side trap. However once they gave up on the off-side trap Darlo looked a lot better, especially after the equaliser. Their number 9 was the only threat and I thought Darlington deserved the win in the end.

Maybe it's a fine line between a "poor" and a "fair" game? I get frustrated when he doesn't seem to win his share of 50/50 tackles as happened on a few occasions last night. I thought there were long periods last night when he didn't seem to be involved at all. As you say we don't all see things the same. Couple of their supporters next to me reckoned Jameson should have been red carded in 2nd half that wasn't my take on that incident!

Thought their manager was going to explode....if they were anything like him im not surprised.Its a step up for Leon and think he is taking longer but liked the way he got stuck in a bit towards the end.

I went for a coffee and as I went I said I thought Cartman should come off for Armstrong,you can guess what happened by the time I came back :)

Fair point he was much more involved towards the end. The two supporters I mentioned were both 6 foot plus skinheads so I made my point to them that I thought Jameson had played the ball, and then decided it was time to move to watch the rest of the game from another part of the ground!

He's played in this league before-I'm informed.
Mr Singh said this " I'm not expecting to get back any of the money I've already put in, I'm prepared to write it off for the future of the club. I'm not hanging in to make any kind of financial gain in the short or long term - if someone was prepared to come in and take the club off my hands, I'd be more than willing to discuss it"

My bad,still a step up for all the players as it is with any team promoted.Some take longer to adjust than others.
