Durham County Cup

I see we're in DCC action tonight at home to Shotton Colliery with a mixture of fringe players and youth players involved. Good chance to give the likes of Martin, Beeden, Hope, Hedley, Mondal and Beachamp some minutes, could be a good competition to go a bit longer in this year with some young firs...

Re: Brackley away 14/9/21

Well we did manage to put together a second half performance and got ourselves a great result. Shame we couldn't hold on to a clean sheet, once again caused by not winning the first header and clearing the ball, still work to do on that front but definitely an improvement from what I've seen on othe...

Re: Brackley away 14/9/21

Got to say as far as first halfs away at Brackley go. That was excellent. Not given them a shot on goal, and barring a 10 minute spell between 30-40 mins we've controlled the ball well and taken the sting out of it against the 10 men. Red card all day long stretching over the top of the ball onto Ri...

Re: Brackley away 14/9/21

My second closest game of the season, so I'm looking forward to finally going along and watching us live. Maybe I shouldn't be based on Brackley's current form. They really are an annoying side, same group seem to have been together for years and each season you wonder will the cracks start to show,...

Re: Blyth v Darlo

Just listened to Armstrong’s interview. I don’t think a manager should call out individuals quite so harshly. Can’t see how it helps and it feels like he is trying to disown his own team. I find this quite funny but not a dig at you in particular. The point is our own "fans" were singing "we're f**...

Re: Blyth v Darlo

Having watched the highlights, again you can't be happy at the goals we conceded. The first I'm not really sure what Purver is doing or what his role is, he either has to be taking responsibility for trying to block the cross as the first man or drop back further and get infront of O'Donnell with Gr...

Blyth v Darlo

Attempt number 4 to get our season off and underway tomorrow. Going to be another tough game, plenty of ex-players at Blyth who will need no extra motivation than trying to get one over on their old employers. Other than the ex-Darlo players there's also the ever green Robbie Dale to try and stop. T...

Re: FA Cup - Chester (H)

Not the tie I was hoping for. But who knows, we've played some if our best football in the FA cup over the last couple of years so no reason why it can't happen again.

Looking at the other fixtures. York v Hebburn could be a good shout for the Iplayer coverage.

Darlo v Bradford PA

Time to get the season started tomorrow (we hope) feel like the mood would really be lifted by three points and dare I suggest a clean sheet. With reinforcements at CB not arriving yet I'd stick by what I said in the other thread. I'd put 5 at the back bringing in Beeden and telling him to challenge...

Re: New signings?

Without reinforcements arriving I was wondering whether we change shape for Saturday and go 5-3-2. Bring Beeden and his size into CB with Taylor and Storey, and just give Beeden the instruction of go and head the ball, anything in the air he is there to attack, if the CF drops deep Beeden goes with ...

Re: Curzon 31.08

I think we all knew this squad was weaker than last season. We lost quality in the likes of Campbell and Sousa. We seem to have brought in poorer players in all areas. I am going to posit that our defensive problems are only partly down to difficulties in finding the right players though, part of t...

Re: Darlington V Alfreton

Watching the highlights (not particularly pretty). Agree with the sentiments we were bullied at CB, Rhead will be a handful for lots of CBs this season if he stays fit but in reality we didn't really lay a glove on him. Saying that the first two goals are on Charman, unfortunately, loses his man on ...

Hope you're right. My concern though is that ours has come at a very bad time. You often hear of managers saying a player will get better in their second season at a club because they'll have had a full pre season. I just wonder whether that could apply to our entire squad. It's a strange one. Obvi...

Had chance to watch the highlights.

At this point I'd happily take a young loanee from a club higher up...

I am actually a little bit upbeat about this season. Last season I felt less optimistic than the general mood on here but this season weirdly it seems it's the other way around.
