Is he still without a club?

Pretty stunned with how this has played out for him. He’d absolutely have been better staying here on non contract terms than whatever he took at Bradford.

Mind you, I wouldn’t have him back after that Twitter outburst he had.

Quite simply he became a poorer player after he left us. Attitude appears all wrong. No way would I have him back.

What the hell has gone wrong there. From the euphoria of his Scottish Prem deal after he was excellent for us game after game to playing in front of 150 people in the NWC, it's been an awful decline. And he's gone rapidly downhill in a relatively short space of time. He looked a liability in his second stint with us and that was repeated at Bradford PA before he slumped further down the pyramid. It's a real shame but for whatever reason he hasn't looked anywhere near the same player.

Very sad the way it turned out. Thought he had the makings of another Dan Burns, but perhaps early success went to his head. He was never the finished product when he left us but plenty of potential.

He clearly has loads of ability, but it's sadly not been on show since he left us the first time. I hope Josh sorts himself out & proves the doubters wrong.

Here’s another price of football :

Did you know that if Darlington were drawn away to a PL club in the FA cup, we would have to pay half of the VAR costs? Currently £9500 + VAT !!

Think gate receipts may cover that and still leave a few quid left over

I do love the victim mentality some have. VAR is applied equally for all clubs.

It’s got its problems, no doubt, but you can put your tinfoil hat away and bore off with the conspiracy theory nonsense.

Surely it would work better if any part of a player is onside the goal stood after all what happened to favouring the attacking side has for conspiracy theories gramps have a look at some of the decisions which have gone both Liverpool and Tottenham's way this season surely you must agree bar is killing the game.

You might want to reword that Gramps because it certainly ain’t applied equally for all clubs. Only premier league grounds have VAR.

VAR isn't perfect but maybe it's the inconsistency of application and/or the law that needs looking at. I agree it's ridiculous that a toe, shoulder or hand can make it offside but I don't believe there's a conspiracy theory. If there was VAR at Shrewsbury and they'd gone through on a dodgy decision you wouldn't be complaining. Think it's a bit like penalties, evening out over the season. I like to think that despite their faults our referees don't cheat. I feel it's spoiling the spontaneity in celebrating a goal then being deflated by a decision. I love that at our level the ref gives a goal and it's a goal.

Nope I don’t. I actually think VAR improves the game in the sense that we get more correct decisions (anyone who says: “Incorrect decisions are part of the game” is clearly a moron).

I won’t dispute that changes need to be made to how VAR works. It’s currently too slow and doesn’t have enough communication with fans.
My personal preference would be for a challenge system, like in cricket.

But to say added technology is killing the game is melodramatic, sensationalist twaddle. People came up with the same nonsense when goal-line technology was about to be introduced. “We don’t need it, it’s all part of the game.” Yet it works seamlessly. VAR is different but with some improvements it’s a benefit to the game.

And I see you have no hard facts to back up your conspiracy theory. Thought as much.

You mean when Firmino was offside by his armpit? Was that a time when VAR went in Liverpool favour.

Not going to lie I'm not a massive fan of current implementation. I think it is getting involved in too many subjective decisions and then being overly forensic on others.

The law is the law on offside. It always has been your toe is offside you are offside that is nothing to do with VAR it's just highlighted it more. Personally I'd rather we stuck to clear and obvious - if you need to draw lines on a screen it isn't clear and it isn't obvious. They should get a time limit on how long to look at it and have to make a call if they don't the on field decision stands.

I actually think now the clubs have voted to allow officials to go to the sideline might actually change it. The media seem to keep forgetting that it has been allowed in FA Cup because the FA (run the competition and approved) but not in the PL (because the members - the clubs did not) - it was just easier for Lineker and crew to sit their bemoaning officials decisions not to do it.

It should effectively means that the VAR won't instruct referee over unless he is 100% sure that the referee will overturn his own decision. That should avoid some of those that I haven't been that convinced by eg. Son's red card for Spurs would have been correct but was overturned incorrectly by VAR.

Might need a few lectures on spelling too....

Always interesting how, whenever people pick a fight with me, they always end up trying to make it about me. Almost as if they struggle to come up with an argument so attack the person instead.

Stick to the topic and everyone is happy.

Was going to say isn't he a full time teacher so couldn't really commit at NLN level?

Regardless he has moved down the divisions ever since he left us so I am not sure that justifies a "let go too quick" perspective either.
