Re: Retained list

Totally agree Beck has nothing to prove given his history Football doesn't work like that IMO. It's what he can do now that matters, I mean Gabbiadini has nothing to prove given his history but we wouldn't want to sign him up. Personally I'm not sure about Beck, I'm not sure he was a big hit at York.

- Thommo v Kidderminster (18/19 season) - plucked out of the air and lobbed the keeper.
:clap: :clap: This was brilliant. Hughes crosses it up and across, Thommo executes a lob par excellence. If this had been on MOTD Lineker and pundits would have been drooling.

Re: Best Darlo goals you’ve seen live

Gabbiadini, for the 2nd part of his first season and the 1st part of his second season, he was amazing :thumbup: I remember a goal he scored away at P'boro. He chested down a long range diagonal pass, then with a defender right behind him and seemingly having no room, he pivoted round and shot - pla...

By the time we left the cricket club were doing everything they could to obstruct the football club.

Re: Transfer Rumours???

Bit of a surprise regarding Sousa as he played 33 games for Grimsby last season and started in the playoff semifinal and final. Think it likely he will be snapped up by a National League team, but if not would be very welcome back at Blackwell Meadows. Sousa must be gutted that Grimsby let him go. ...

I think Drewe played for free. If so we need to give him the benefit of the doubt - also he was playing in a poor team, which doesn't make things any easier.

I was thinking of Paul Beavers too. If I remember right he only scored one goal for Darlo, it was in front of The Tinshed and deflected in off of his backside.

Important goal though.
