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.

Re: New signings

Looking at the squad now 13 out of 19 are new signings with just six players retained. Quite amazing really. Can't expect all of these recruits to come off but its quite exciting I think to see such a new look team.

Re: Reminder Fans Forum tonight

Campbell was very good for us. And I don't think 4-3-3 suited him that well. Would have said he was the 3rd best player on our books last season behind Hatfield and Sousa.

That being said I also agree with those saying that Nelson could potentially be a better player.

Re: Andrew Nelson signs

This is potentially a fantastic signing. Without his injury we would have had little chance of him being here. They might take a while but Nelson and Charman could be great for us if we can keep hold of them. Now will just get back to refreshing social media every 15 mins waiting for a centre back o...

Re: Darlington V Sunderland

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. I think most if not all of the new signings look good or promising or give us something we didn't have. And I would expect...

Re: Jake Cassidy

I wonder from Armstrong's comments whether we might start playing with two strikers. Talks about him being a good foil for a strike partner, doing the ugly physical stuff etc.

Re: Ty o,neil

I'd sign him. I'd also like to see us try two central strikers. I probably sound like a dinosaur but quite often it seemed like we struggled to break teams down at home with two wide men and a single striker.

Re: Player of the season

Sousa for me. Goals and assists all the time. Yes he tries stuff that doesn't come off and I can see why people might be frustrated by his decision making but I think he has looked our best player by some distance.

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.

Re: Home Kit Vote

I would like a change from hoops but from these four I think the kind of hooped one is maybe the least bad. 3 is also Ok I guess.

4 is horrible and 2 if chosen would overtake the 96-97 soccerdome kit as the biggest pile of s**te Darlo have ever been seen in.

Re: Spennymoor Boxing Day

Difficult conditions. Thought we looked a bit better than we have in other home games. But still not sold that we have the attacking players for the formation we are playing. Hatfield looked at it. That is deffo our best midfield three if we are going to play 4-3-3 and also we have missed Liddle.

In nearly 40 years watching football I have not seen a player dominate a world cup or ignite and inspire a city like Maradona did in Mexico and Naples.

Great shout from Makka Pakka. Four wins in the FA Cup is a great effort. As for the league I would like to see us try two up front in home games.

Great cup run. Horrible afternoon but perhaps one game too far. Got to start winning league matches at home now. But as for the above posts I think people are absolutely right to question the selection. We lost 6-0 for heaven's sake.

Three points out of 15 then. Home games are obviously different in Covid times but bloody hell that was a hard watch and a long and very different season in front of us. Sousa was good and I thought Campbell was alright first half. Good to see Hatfield back playing and erm . . that's it

Darlo's best away kit?

As well as looking good yesterday, we also looked good. This kit is, IMO, the smartest away kit we have ever had.

I also liked a few in the mid 90s but what other good ones I am forgetting?
