Re: George Reynolds - Time to let it go

Had reynolds not come in 1999 the club would have gone bust then and i dont recall anyone boycotting games in his early days as chairman. He seemed quite popular with some good ideas to get more fans in, especially those of us who were teenagers at the time who followed premier league teams. Im sur...

Re: 6 players leave

Given all the talk of players going out, I’ll start with a bit of baseless speculation for players we might be interested in: Robbie Briggs (South Shields), Macauley Langstaff (Gateshead), Josh MacDonald (Pools) & Paddy McLaughin (York). Interesting on Briggs. Shields are going full time this seaso...

Re: Potential new local derbies

Theres a few myths about the northern league in terms of promotion; -travel: the north east is not that isolated especially with road improvements. As darlogramps said no teams barely went up so thats why there was alot of travelling with trips as far south as derby at one time at step 4. -the fa ai...

Re: George Reynolds

Amos is, was and always will be a pompous bore, more interested in backslapping his mates than wanting the best for the clubs. It’s no surprise he’s crawling right up Reynolds’ backside. He’s always had it in for Darlington fans, calling us “paranoid” during our spell in the Northern League. He mad...

Re: George Reynolds

Slightly off topic but mike amos’s main gripe with compulsory promotion was that the northern league would be decimated and the leagues below.

Re: George Reynolds

According to his mate Mike Amos, we Darlo fans may just be a bunch of ungrateful wretches: "He became Darlington FC chairman with the best intentions, invested millions just to keep the club solvent and a great deal more on what became the 25,000-capacity Reynolds Arena, on the edge of town.

Re: George Reynolds

If it is true, and not another Forster-esque con, then I won’t sink to the level of celebrating his death but certainly won’t be mourning him either. He shouldn’t be remembered as “a character”. He was a criminal, a thug and a narcissist. He shouldn’t be compared to Singh or Houghton, all of them w...

Re: F A TROPHY ~ WEALDSTONE MATCH?

I have a little chuckle when I think about the National league actually doing something constructive and I I would love to get a peek inside their office. I imagine it to look similar to the inside of a 70s/80s secondary school janitors room. Mops and buckets all over, a couple of crusty coats hung...

Why the hell would clubs want to take on debts to continue to play a bizare season behind closed doors with no fans. Surely the bulk of national league clubs cans survive on streaming alone too.
