Re: 6 players leave

If we want Charman to be that holding forward, he probably needs to gain a bit more strength and compete in the air a bit more. He also needs to get a nastier side, play just on the right side of not getting into trouble with the ref. He does however have the ability in running the line well because...

Re: 6 players leave

Although I don't disagree with people who say we need a speedy and/or touch player up front, but we had that in Campbell last year and against the bigger teams we really struggled. The type of player we need the most is someone with a stronger presence up front. Someone who can hold the ball up and ...

Re: 6 players leave

We've probably offered them reduced wages which would negate any option we may have had.

Re: Darlington V Hornchurch Trophy Quarter Final

Probably very little chance of getting him, but James Spencer from Farsley would solve our centre forward issue. Great in the air, strong, hard working and would be the presence we're currently lacking. We would however probably go to a long ball team overnight.

Re: Darlington V Hornchurch Trophy Quarter Final

You’ve clearly been watching a different match, the problem was we were shooting too much and didn’t have any composure and yes this time I think the ref played quite a big part in this game.

Re: David Johnson : We are in a sad position

Well say they’re getting tested due to their main employment, problem solved.

To be fair I just posted in the context of the trophy match, I wasn’t really suggesting it be used for the season because I can’t see a way out of the funding issue.

Re: David Johnson : We are in a sad position

Although I take the points raised about whether footballers should use the community testing, but there’s over 250 spots available for testing in the Dolphin Centre tomorrow so there appears to be plenty of capacity.

Gramps, I realise you're not trying to create an argument, just stimulate a bit of debate. With that it mind and I know you don't particularly like these, but hypothetical question. if there was an increase in sales of a non hooped shirt and that allowed us to bring in a new player, would sentiment ...

Re: Home Kit Vote

I don’t think it’s time to move on from hoops forever, but if home shirt sales are falling, then commercially it’s reasonable to have a break for one year. I actually like 3, but if we were going to do something different I would have gone with quarters which we have played in before, or maybe just ...

Re: Away to Bristol rovers

My biggest worry about this season and it showed again today is that quite frequently if we let a goal in, heads drop. It usually affects all teams, but it seems to affect us more. We were at least on a par with them until the first goal went in and then it went downhill from there. You could make a...

Re: Guiseley v Darlington

I understand the argument about McMahon and his experience, but I haven’t been impressed with the games he’s played so far. It has been a bit stop start for him and before this season he hasn’t had much football and I’m sure he’ll come good, remember Hunt looked rusty in his first couple of games, b...

Re: Darlington v Prescot Cables

Reasonable performance today in a match we dominated. Like another poster I thought Hunt got caught a bit when players ran at him, but I suspect that’s all down to rustiness. His composure and coolness on the ball though was something we missed last year. Very early days and all players need games t...

There you get one camera and no replays. Even that would have been excellent at our level, but what we got was a slick professional exp...

I’ve just looked at that statement again and there’s nothing about current season ticket holders. I wouldn’t be bringing any of these points up at all if we were 3-4 weeks away from the season starting, but were 7 days away.

Old Git you may well be right, but you haven’t given any evidence to back your posts up which is the point Gramps is making. From what I’ve seen he’s a decent shot stopper, but if you’re not one of those as a goalkeeper there’s little point in playing. The more important attributes that set you asid...

Re: Latest friendly

Out of interest which ofthe goals is his fault. The penalty is obviously a dive and the fourth is a mix up, so you can argue he could have done better, but it looks like he’s getting there before the ball is poked past him. He has no chance for goals two and three.

Re: Ground share

As Middlesbrough will have to cap their capacity, I know two Boro non season ticket holding fans would go to the Arena so they can see some live football. I don’t think this would be unique to just Darlo either.
