Re: Best Darlo goals you’ve seen live

Giving my age away now, so FA Cup 2nd round December 1976 against Sheffield Wednesday, who had been putting us through the mill & testing our resistance most of the game, finally we got the ball just into their half to big Ron Ferguson. He slipped his marker but, lacking forward support, about 35yd...

Martin was keeper when I first got hooked in my early teens.
Always felt more confident with him in goal.

Re: Curzon 31.08

First of all thanks for the info MCFC. I live 10 miles from Curzon and normally go to this game but due to family reasons was going to make a last minute decision on this occasion so now won't have the extra time to pre book the ticket. I don't blame Curzon Ashton for not wanting to have lots of cas...

Re: Quaker TV

When I lived in the town I'd go to the match but I live 120 miles away and can only get to a few home games (and more away games) each season.
I'd buy from Quaker TV as would many exiles.
Lost income stream for me.

Re: FA rules on abandonment

Even though there was a chance we could have pulled the goals back (and Nicky Hunt obviously hadn’t given up) I think we should offer to concede for the sake of controlling the virus. That will show common sense and sportsmanship and we can get on with the season from there. “For the sake of contro...

Re: Cambridge City at home

Thanks Darlo TV
First time I used the streaming and very good quality, and commentary.
As an exile who only gets to a few home games a year I’d like this opportunity even when the fans are allowed back.

Re: North West based Darlington fans

It’s a nice idea but even from the Stockport area I’d probably drive directly and stay overnight. There are quite a lot more north west based fans than you think mind you. Certainly when I speak to people at away games I’d say about 40% either live locally or maybe have come up from the midlands. Ha...

Re: Darlington FC fightback victories

Coming from 2 down at home to Hartlepool to win 5-2. McClean in the tin shed end before half time then 4 from Alan Walsh in the Polam end in the second half. About 1981 I think.
Also coming from 3-1 down at Salford to win 4-3 has got to be worth a shout.

Re: BM or HP

That being said HP right now is slightly better if too far out of town, but BM just needs more terracing and seats added.
I don't even think the clubhouse spoils the atmosphere.

Re: Tommy Wright: 19/20 Season. Yay or Nay

This isn't clear cut for me but I'd say we should start next season with TW. I think a lot of fans would look purely at attendance tables and assume that we should make the playoffs on that basis, but perhaps the real comparison is with other 'fan owned' clubs such as FC united. I think Tommy has ma...

Re: Twenty years ago tonight.

I was in the City end on the South Terrace with a mate of mine as I lived in Manchester and the 5000 home tickets had all been sold whearas City only sold half their ludicrous 3000 allocation.
Had to pretend to be really disappointed at City’s defending when Gary Bennet scored!

I guess that's true, but is it so much the case while we're in the north. I'd imagine we have a fair few scattered around London, myself included.

Surely if you buy a mini ticket you will use it yourself. Surely there will never be circumstances where someone who lives over 100 miles away can’t make it to the last game of the season.

What I don’t like about VAR is the now you can never quite cheer with certainty when you score a goal. The Iran non equaliser being a case in point. The huge cheer as the ball hits the back of the net and the ref points to the centre circle is what the game is all about. Goal line technology I can a...
