Re: To the good people of Hartlepool . . .

The best bit is always leftie reactions on twitter, gonna get my popcorn out and have a sit down for half an hour. As Dave said, “Britain and Twitter are not the same thing”. If Twitter was to be believed, Corbyn would now be PM, we would have had a second referendum (as we didn't know what we were...

Re: 6 players leave

Campbell said he wanted the full time training element and also to play central. Don't think Maguire will take the full time route. He tried that and wanted to come back part time. AA said that due to the nature of his job, that he has to train him less. I think he's a plumber and wanted to spend m...

Re: Potential new local derbies

The quality of teams in the Northern League is fast being eroded. Imagine if in 2012 we had been placed into a league which had not included Spennymoor South Shields Dunston Marske Hebburn and Shildon. We would have had it won by Christmas. Out of them teams there was only really Spenny who were a ...

Re: George Reynolds

I wonder if he hadn’t been our ‘Knight in shining armour’ and paid off our debts would we have went bust and lost Feethams anyway? I like to think if he hadn’t turned up that day we’d have found another buyer or ended up starting again at Feethams and 20 years later we’d be in a much better positio...

Re: Stevie Mardenborough scores winner at Anfield

In his final season for Darlo when he played as a striker I think he was brilliant to watch. Remember away wins at Shrewsbury and Scarborough when he looked unplayable. And then we sold him for next to nothing. I think he is a really underrated Darlo player . . Hence my username. He had just bought...

Re: Darlington V Hornchurch Trophy Quarter Final

18 shots suggests we are far from shot shy. What we are bad at mainly is making the correct choice when in possession at key moments and switching off when we don't have possession in key moments. Take both their goals today, first one Liddle switches off when they break into the box meaning his run...

Think its a case of he would answer to either Ton or Tom, the latter more than likely down to people thinking it was Tom!

Re: DFC Voted for League to be Null & Void

I think we are playing safe by playing when we are meant to, or at least being available to play, until the result of the ballot is published. Technically the league can take action against clubs refusing to play until this is resolved, whether that be fines or even point reductions applied next sea...

I think this thread just proves how out of touch some referees actually are with the game.

Be interesting if the tackle had been on Wheatley rather than him making it whether the views would be the same.
I'd say exactly the same, the ball was won cleanly, not a foul in any sense of the word.

Re: That penalty

No it's the law. Tackling without consideration for the safety of an opponent is a caution - by the laws of the game. Agree or not that is the definition of a reckless tackle. If a referee doesn't caution they are incorrect in law. They get marked accordingly in the system and their 'career' trajec...

It's a tricky one Old Git.

Someone had the idea on here that if we pay and organise for full testing before the game, then that might neutralise any criticism aimed at us.
And if someone gets a positive test the game will be off anyway haha!
