First half was fairly even, but then we got well on top and we certainly deserved the win. Thomo got MOTM, but I'd have given it to Galbraith and Trotman had a great game as well. We hit the woodwork twice and had 3 goals disallowed. Overall it was a very good game and a vast improvement on the Curzon Ashton game.
Fairly even first half? Not for me. We started well, conceded off nothing. Next 10 were even-ish. Then we dominated everything after, although they did have 1 very good chance at the end

Excellent performance. If we can maintain that standard we will win a lot of games.

Three disallowed one hand ball two off sides I heard the referee had said. Didn't see anything wrong myself with the third goal. But that's the poor standards of refereeing in these league,s
Onwards and upwards kiddie on Saturday.

Really enjoyed the game, but not the result. Trotman and Galbraith outstanding and if the Peterlee Pele had scored that 45 yard shot what a night!

The hand ball disallowed goal was interesting... Had the ball hit a Blyth player in the same way and bounced clear, would the ref have given a penalty.. I very much doubt it.
But, as others have said. It was a very good performance last night apart from not getting the luck you sometimes need in games.. Indeed all the luck was with Blyth last night.

Well it's just about opinions, I thought they had the better of the first 20 minutes, hence a fairly even first half.

Credit must also go to the management duo, for pulling together this squad of players, and getting them playing well within the team in a relatively short time frame. Well done both management and players.

Apart from 10/15 mins at the start of the game, I was happy with that performance last night. We did everything we could apart from getting that second goal.
We just didn’t have that bit of luck, any other day we’d have scored 5/6.

How Blyth beat Chester 8-1 at the weekend I don’t know as they were just awful. Thommo has a fantastic game and deserved a goal. Thought Elliott and Wheatley in the middle were superb and they’re building up a great understanding.

Styche and Ainge are doing fantastic up top too, 7 goals between them in 4 games. It’s only going to get better too.

Must give credit to the Darlo fans who turned out in the rain. 1631 wasn’t it? Alongside Blyths massive 15/20 who turned up.
Hopefully those floating fans enjoyed that game and are back against Altrincham next weekend.

Onwards to Kidderminster. Up The Darlo.

That's an encouraging attendance for a midweek game in the rain if true.

The weather could have put a few off, as it was pretty heavy in the 30 minutes before kick-off and then when the game started it stopped. Thought the Blyth turnout was really poor and given that the 1600 or so Darlo that made up the rest of the crowd was a great effort.

Thought they contributed to an entertaining game. Very sharp up front which we really struggled with early on but remedied that by making them defend for most of the game - and their centre halves did that very well unfortunately.

I also thought Blyth were better team first 15-20 mins. Seemed to get through us every time they went forward, and could have been 2 up at least. Switch then seemed to be thrown, and we battered them, but without much luck, and also some poor finishing. Nearly lost it at the end when the munchkin dragged a shot wide he should really have scored.

Very encouraging performance.

Just seen Armstrong's post match comments and loved the "after McGuire's goal we were dragged down to their style of play". What a complete load of rubbish, not the brightest button in the box and he should have acknowledged they were played off the park by a far better team and should thank his lucky stars that very debatable decisions by the match officials have gifted him a point.

Good to hear Armstrong saying that had they won it would have been daylight robbery, and darlington were a good side, and they nicked an unexpected point

Not criticising yours, just disagreeing. Everyone is entitled to theirs.

People shouldn’t blame the ref. We still should have won and it was nice to see Tommy not blame the ref.

I came away last night incredibly encouraged. We battered them, but just had one of those nights in front of goal.

I don't think, with the way we're set up, we're going to be the most solid of teams. 2 out and out strikers, 2 proper wingers, 2 CMs who like to get forwards and 2 attacking full backs means we're going to be left open at times. So I'm not surprised that Blyth, who are set up in a similarly attacking fashion, carved out a few chances of their own. But the pleasing thing was how relatively few they were. We won the ball back well. Elliott and Wheatley must be the most energetic CM partnership we've had in years.

And some of the play going forwards was a joy to behold, carving them open at will. Some of the best football I've seen from a Darlo team. Yes it's disappointing we didn't finish the chances off, but that will come. I reckon we will thump a few teams this season (and I think we will also be on the end of a few thumpings too when we have a bad day, but I hope I'm wrong on that count!).

The one down side is I don't think 433 with both Styche and Ainge on works. I think we lose our shape a bit. Bit that's just nitpicking, as we still created chances after that. I just think Nicholson or Saunders would be better placed for that wide forward role.

Anyway, if that is the standard of play we can expect this season then we'll be in for a very entertaining season, and one in which we should win plenty of games.

No doubt they won't because we didn't win 6-1... :roll:

Really struggling with what is wrong with that third disallowed goal. It goes in off the defender, doesn't it??

It hit Styche but no-one on the Blyth side appealed for handball. Seems like the only person in the ground to spot a deliberate handball was the ref.

The behind goal cam looks a bit suspicious. If you look before Jameson dives Styche makes a movement with him right arm and then it is being pulled back once Jameson has dived. The footage doesn’t conclusively show it though and the original angle looks like nowt wrong.

Whilst the camera on the half way line gives a different angle to what the Linesman sees, first 2 goals did look just offside to me didn't they?

The Ref seems to be well placed with this incident. To me it looks like the ball could well hit Styche on the arm - it's heading towards him at arm height - Styche seems to make a little nudging turn towards the goal - then the ball is in the net!
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"

Cannot see from the highlights but not sure if Styche "protested his innocence" after this, if not then that probably tells you something!

Have a look again, Styche is doing his nut with the ref. Very telling that neither the Blyth player marking Styche nor the one a few yards away appeal for anything. One of them just has his head in his hands in despair. They were surprised it was disallowed.

I don’t think Styche really reacts on the highlights. I’ve seen him react more than that when blatant fouls have been given against him when his guilt isn’t even in doubt. It’s what he does to sow a seed of doubt thinking that it might mean the next 50:50 will go his way.

In fact initially he just seems to go back to his position it’s only when the ref moves toward him does he say anything. I’d have really expected Styche to go and remonstrate towards him if he felt hugely hard done by.

Jameson appeals but agree nobody else does. The guy marking Styche won’t have a clue it’s too close to him to see what it came off.

As for offsides. The first goal (Blyth) the camera does show anything we can’t see the Blyth player as the ball is played. On ours it’s actually really really tight to the point I don’t really know. You could draw a line which says he’s off and one which says he’s on and it’s impossible to tell which is the one that is correct based on camera angle distortion.
