Re: Gateshead v Darlington

Difference between part-time and full-time today. Gateshead were always going to be a strong and fit squad, we just can't compete consistently with a side like this. We gave it a go but as others have said it seems like once Wheater went off we were struggling defensively. I'm going to say it once ...

Re: Leamington Saturday

No, give me falling over when accidentally breathed on, rolling around at every tackle, every foul resulting in wild appeals for a booking/sending off, bear hugs at every corner, any day. You do realise players in the 70s did all these things? Cheating to gain an advantage has been part of football...

Footifan returns

Footifan sadly passed away today. Whether you agreed with his opinions or not there's no doubt he loved Darlo. His Texan friends contributed some funds to the cause. Knowing him, whether they wanted to or not. RIP.

Re: Some questions about following Darlo in none league

I think the Spurs fan's behaviour says a lot about him as a person.

There's banter but taking pleasure in the demise of a local football club would tell me that he seems like a complete merchant banker.

See what he's like when City sign Harry Kane. Won't be laughing then.

Paul Heckingbottom

Caretaker manager of Sheffield United.

Is he the first ex darlo player to manage in the Premier League?

There could be somebody obvious but as I'm on to the second bottle of wine and can't be arsed to check, I don't know.

I also think he's got the most Lancashire/Yorkshire surname in the world.

First chance I've had to see Wheatley's booking. Given it was a Darlo player and the comments I've read so far, I was expecting it to be a borderline booking. Not even a borderline foul. If our resident referees' friend wants defend the decision, or at least justify it, that's his call but he's star...

Re: Home Kit Vote

1 & 2 are awful.

4 is a bit, well I don't know. It might grow on me.

I actually like 3.

Tin hat on but I've never liked hoops. Particularly hooped socks.

Bit too rugby for my liking.

I think Gramps is right though. It does look a bit loaded.

Re: Spennymoor away

Spennymoor is covered in snow and no chance of melting with current climate If you had a decent sized fan base you could ask for volunteers to clear any snow off the pitch. Yer 200 less than Darlington, not a good idea to ask fans with shovels to possibly take chunks out of one of the best playing ...
