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" "administratio...

Re: Integrity in the National League!!

Spen. To your first point - I see what you mean. To your second point I also see what you mean. I got the impression previously that the 17 clubs wanted an actual meeting, where grievances could be aired, people held to account and a vote, however I'm wondering if Ive's and co are just trying to eng...

Re: Integrity in the National League!!

The National League are experts in kicking the can down the road. We have Ollie Bayliss (the mole who just keeps on digging) still trying to get his hands on details about the infamous funding meeting - Here he is - taken from his Twitter page - "73 days ago I submitted a Freedom of Information Act ...

Re: 6 players leave

Perhaps Campbell got used to playing in front of no fans and wanted to continue to do so?

Re: Wheatley stays, Hunt and Saltmer released

With all these players leaving, Campbell has been the only surprise to me. We're having a bigger rebuild than I thought, and it seems a little strange coming from a season that we never saw.

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: 6 players leave

Given how badly we performed in the league last season, we were a soft touch, then I happy to get some new blood. Maguire was a flop and also injured a lot - so I am surprised he has been offered a deal elsewhere, but it will be most likely be Shields or Spenny. Watson - is a shame as he was always...

Re: 6 players leave

Maguire - is the one I'm most disappointed to see leave after all of the chasing we did, all of the fanfare when he signed, and we never really got to see much of him due to injuries and a curtailed season. On previous reputation alone a big loss, but in reality it's 2 or 3 years since he did anyth...

Seem to remember he converted to a decent centre half who used to confuse the opposition with unorthodox clearances. They liked him at Boston.- when he went there.

Re: Appeal

I am sure they could still fine Man U because the allegation would be that Man U failed to provide a suitable, SAFE venue ( if saying game could not go ahead because of invasion) or alternatively for failing to control their fans. For example rule 12.2 would come into play if there was crowd troubl...

Re: Appeal

I agree with the principle of appealing but I'm slightly surprised we are bothering, although I'm not sure what the substance of a 'suspended points deduction' really entails. I don't think it means anything, it seems to be a punishment in name only. I suppose when next season kicks off. If there i...

A reply was expected within this period but Ives and co seem to draggin...

I don’t really enjoy Premier League football anymore. It’s just too sanitised for me.

Integrity in the National League!!

As more and more clubs have nothing to play for (as in they can't go up or down) then National League results will continue to become increasingly daft. Let's look at Wealdstone, players on Furlough and new ones brought in - last two results a 6 nil reverse to M'head and a 7/2 drubbing against Hartl...

Out of the 17? 18 clubs? Are we saying that not one had one “just cause” - A couple of clubs have pleaded guilty and a couple more might not appeal, but even so.

D.J. Has put forward a number of “just causes” and he looks like he means business.
