Re: George Reynolds - Time to let it go

I think it's fair to say the Reynolds era was a chapter in the whole history of Darlington FC and however controversial it was, it has shaped the club and to an extent has to be acknowledged. Just as with all the events previous to Reynolds and all those after. My opinion of the Reynolds era is that...

Re: 6 players leave

It's going to be a busy summer trying to sign better players than the ones that have departed - I'd say Campbell will be the biggest void to fill so far and it remains to be seen who else departs. However, it may not be as bad as it seems, there are likely to be many players culled from higher up as...

Re: Paul Heckingbottom

Ricky Sbragia had a brief loan spell with us at the back end of his playing career and managed Sunderland in the Premier League 08/09 season after Roy Keane resigned. He was better known for building a reputation in charge of Man Utds reserve team late 90/00s.

I actually like the prospect of this, Wheater and Hunt the new White and Foster partnership. Just need to make sure we have some fullbacks with pace. :thumbup:

Re: Poolies Feeling The Pinch

Back to the original conversation about Poolies. It may sound nasty but I hope it all comes down over there. I'm normally quite pleased to see any north east sides succeeding and would love a time where we are all doing well at higher levels. However, once they allowed RS to get involved after the w...

Re: Darlington V Hornchurch Trophy Quarter Final

I do have more hope of better things and progress under AA but I think one major thing that let's down his team's is consistency. I think at Blyth it was the same to an extent and it does seem to have happened to us over the past season and what ever this season has been. We either win or lose, with...

Re: Season null and voided

Simply should not have included a restart for any non-league football from Step 1 to grassroots. There were always going to be too many variables at this level e.g number of part time or full time teams, fan-owned or privately funded, access to Covid testing etc. It should have just been Premier Lea...

If the season is ended, what happens to ST holders & 500 club members. It will put the club in a very difficult position. Would any/ many fans want their money back.

The Europa hooped version at the moment is not that shabby (I've tried inserting the link below).

In the interview with Ray, AA does mention that he has unfortunately let a player go to bring in O'Neill.
