It’s just a case of dotting and crossing. Hopefully announced in a day or two

Fingers crossed, hopefully announced today.
For you to insult me, I must first value your opinion.

I wish they'd get the new bloke announced. Hope this delay doesn't mean he's having second thoughts.
At this rate we'll be on Page 36 of this thread before we find out who he is.

I wonder how many of those that voted for Hardy would have voted for Armstrong if they knew he was a realistic target?

I'd imagine even more so if the candidate is currently employed elsewhere. Compensation to be agreed etc.

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

If it is Armstrong, I actually want us to make a point of paying fair compensation to Blyth. Set a standard and show we do things the right way.

My thoughts exactly. Given the way we felt about MG's departure to York I'd be very disappointed if the club didn't conduct themselves with the utmost integrity in with regards to any appointment to show we're better than that.

Just sharing what I've been told by someone in the know. Wouldn't say it's 100%.

Aren't Nuneaton full time? I'm not convinced Wright would want to give up a FT job for a PT one.

On the flip side, I'm not convinced Armstrong would want to leave Blyth at the moment either

So overall, I've no idea. I'd imagine we will find something out pretty soon though!

Seems plausible to me. We have no idea how negotiations with Armstrong and/or Blyth have gone. If they have ground to a halt TW is probably the best alternative of the options I'm aware of.
Alun's promise to the fans: “I’ll make sure I’ll bring players in that are value for money and I want players that want to play for Darlington Football Club, want to progress and move up the league and show the fans that passion.”

I'm not sure why either would leave their current jobs to be fair, but I guess there is quite a lot of prestige tied with potentially getting Darlo back to the conference.

There wouldn't be. News like this will be kept under an embargo and released by all parties at the same time.

I'd expect that anyone in a position to know anything about it would remain tight-lipped about it so anything said here or elsewhere should be taken with a pinch of salt.

Hopefully we'll find out today.

I'm sure that some posters on here know the identity of the new manager and will have disclosed who he is, but I'm not sure who those posters are. Looks like it's between Tommy Wright and Alun Armstrong, if you believe posters on here.

Patience is a virtue sadly lacking with social media and since 2012 has wasted a lot of time for previous directors with emails,texts&phone calls stemming from rumour not fact. Hopefully not too long to wait for the official announcement.
