This is what we’re missing!

The Northern Echo Arena - Home of Darlington FC.
In just a couple of day we play our first pre-season game of the new campaign. It’s only pre-season, but the fact that we’re looking forward to them is symptomatic of just how much we have been starved of football over these last few weeks.

Once that games kicks off on Friday the countdown to the new season can really begin. It will signal the end of a lot of speculation, a lot of unrest, a lot of nervousness and will give us something to focus on. After all, despite all of the differing opinions on all of the different aspects of our club, it’s the football that we all love so much. That means more of this, hopefully!

I hope you enjoyed. I can’t wait now!

  1. I heard Chelsea are gonna bid 15 million for Tiote – surely he’s worth more than Carroll and Henderson

  2. Spence – stop being a puff or you’ll get bullied, I know your only young but I’d give my kids a slap (mentally rather than physically) if they acted so immaturely – they’re a lot younger than you !

  3. That Tiote story is just lazy journos recycling something from the january window and that was probably a non story to begin with. But hey, at least they are recycling!

    Chelsea have been out spent by Leicester and Wolves so far this window as well. Apart from us, Sunderland and Liverpool not many teams have done much.

  10. By the way – 20m for Downing is madness. Prices for English players is beyond a joke now…

  11. prices are completely ridiculous for English players right now. And hitman has to be right. It’s all down to commoli. He gets very limited, and very well known, targets in mind and somehow convinces the owners to pay for it all. It’s ridiculous!
    Let’s just hope that it bites Liverpool in the arse throwin this much dumb money around.

    I’m happy to continue our purchases throughout Europe.

  12. I just don’t understand why English players attract the price they do. They are technically inferior generally and never offer what a continental player can. Madness.
