Re: Best Darlo goals you’ve seen live

Mark Dobie January 1993 vs Bolton in the (Autoglass) Trophy. Volley from the edge of the box placed into the top corner with the laces in front of the tin shed. Took it to 3-3 and extra time I think. We lost 4-3 of course.

Re: Darlo’s worst XI

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. Can't remember the specifics but weren't we beyond the player registration deadline so all our signings needed special dispensation. Broughto...

Re: Darlo’s worst XI

There's no contest for the striking role, Mor Diop, he looked like he'd never heard of football before, never mind played it. Special mention for Drewe Broughton, although to be fair, he wasn't exactly in his prime. In fact he'd retired some time earlier and only came to us because the Conference wo...

If we were liquidated, what the f**k were we doing paying players that were owed from 2011/12 and also having Phil Gray as a contracted professional at the start of 2012/13?

Re: Nigel Pepper - 1990/91 season

That's my recollection, yes. I was at all three games. Seems he wasn't much better at Aberdeen where he was sent off 3 times in his 15 games for them:

Re: Darlo v Kettering

Based on the highlights, did Kettering only have one attack? It must have been windy-I'm pretty sure it's blown the rugby posts over!!

Anybody ?
That's twice now. The other one we also conceded 5 at Kidderminster.

I don't buy this "gone as far as we can". At least not in a footballing sense, the ground situation is clearly holding us back. We already have a big enough budget to be successful in this league, it is temporarily tougher due to clubs with more dosh but they will either go up or go pop sooner or la...

Re: Darlo v York

It looked like a penalty to me and seeing it on the replay doesn't change my mind much but the frustrating thing for me was that kind of physicality was going on throughout the game all over the pitch and was hardly ever given as a foul. Sods law he decides to give this one. Irritates the hell out o...

Not surprised by Hunt's release, as he didn't dominate our defense like I'd hoped he would. Saltmer never generated much confidence & I'm sure there are better options out there. Never saw Hunt or Saltmer play, apart from on TV at Bristol Rovers.

Turn a page in the program into a football pitch and then divide into yard squares.

Between the goal posts, centre spot, and penalty spots cost double. No...

How is it that we can play in the trophy and not the league? Surely if we are playing at all (and training) then the players are being paid in full.
