Re: Quaker TV

Bit of light relief from all the comfusing serious stuff. When you see TV adverts which involve people - usually towards the younger end of the age spectrum - watching football on TV, they are oftn shown wearing their club shirts. Does anyone 'dress up' to watch Darlo games on Quaker TV or other cl...

Re: Southport...

Gone as far as we can being a fan owned club. Can think of a few foreign clubs that are fan owned & did quite well for a while.

Re: Darlington v Hereford Saturday 9th October 2021

Good point it probably was a factor. Hope the likely resurgence of Newcastle Utd won’t lead to more young fans being lured up the A1 to Geordieland. As with any club who is bought out by money bags owners, I'd urge the geordies to be careful what they wish for the grass isn't always greener. Bad en...

Sounds ominous. You don't get "rushed" into hospital for something that's not serious. All the best Alun, but sounds like it could be a while. :( Sounds like it could be a while based on what knowledge exactly?

Re: Shirt survey

Yeah, got it in my emails. Done and done. Obviously been a fair bit of moaning about the hoops. Generally, I agree we should be in hoops, but I really like the sash this year and to be fair to Joma, I think they've done a cracking job. I think the sash or the single hoop/band is a nice compromise f...

Charman off injured in first half
I cannot get commentary but report on Club site says after going 2 nil down "Quakers responded by replacing Charman with Purver" so that suggests a tactical move?
The commentators said Charman just looked knackered, came back too soon from Covid :roll:
