Re: George Reynolds - Time to let it go

Had reynolds not come in 1999 the club would have gone bust then and i dont recall anyone boycotting games in his early days as chairman. He seemed quite popular with some good ideas to get more fans in, especially those of us who were teenagers at the time who followed premier league teams. Im sur...

Re: George Reynolds - Time to let it go

I think most Darlo fans have "let it go". It's the media that have this perpetual link between George Reynolds and Darlington football Club. It's just so easy for them to cobble together an article, and don't you just know it will always feature these words and phrases - "safecracker" "administrati...

Re: Integrity in the National League!!

Integrity also short in Premier League with Spurs charging £60+ £1.75 booking fee for entry after 17 May. Contrast the greed of this Big 6 pretender club to Burnley who are giving 3500 free entries based on ballot of season ticket holders. That is integrity! I was totally dumbfounded when I heard t...

Re: Rugby League

Wow what a win tonight ! Tigers had to dig deep to overcome a plucky Salford side, its a pity Wane is in charge of England as he wont be picking McShane, the winner of the Man of Steel isnt good enough for him. I do fancy us to beat the Wire, would love a trip to Wembley. Fuming. Got the other 3 wi...

Re: Hartlepool By Election

Labour can change as many leaders as they like, it won’t make any difference until they start connecting and listening to people again. It’s a party stuck in its own bubble, the party of the affluent metropolitan cities. Less affluent areas like Hartlepool no longer feel Labour represents them. And...

Re: Boost the budget 2021

On the BBC Sport webpage there is an article about a "Fan Engagement Index" whereby all league clubs are rated in how they communicate and interact with their fans. Exeter are top, and their fans raised £100K for them - less than us :D Meanwhile Salford sit in the bottom 6, meaning Mr Neville doesn...

Re: Rugby League

Good to see that Wigan's Tony Clubb, has been banned for racist language in the game against Hull.

You seem to have lost the nucleus of a pretty decent side & now your having to bring in fringe players who aren't up to it. Fortunately for Leeds, there are worse sides in the SL.

Re: 6 players leave

Lidds will be biggest miss and Campbell always put in a shift, but TBH would like to see some bigger bods capable of winning headers and holding up the ball. AA has an eye for decent footballers so I think he must have replacements in mind already as he would not have let them go. Did he "let them ...

Re: Rugby League

Good win for Huddersfield today, as they surprisingly beat Leeds who seem to be struggling at the moment. I have never been convinced that Agar is the man to take them forward. If Sinfield is to get it right he needs to stop the old pals act. As I said yesterday, I am happy Udders won. No match for...

Well that was deflating. Swapped 6 at the start of the second half and at 60 minutes you could not call it but then Warry got the run you need with a couple of dropped balls from us and 2 tries run in with no defence. Came back with another try but Warry went in again as well. Not a 20 point game in...

Yes he clearly won that battle. It is a shame that Connor lets his head get so full of garbage. He could easily be a MOS ...

It wasn't the league who didn't want to take part was it? Clubs were eligible for promotion they just chose not to take it so it was the clubs rather than the league.

I had exactly the same thought as you.
I do not see a good half of Cas's players fitting with Radfords style.
