Re: Yeovil Town v Dartford Sat 13 Apr 2024

There's been so many fans from other National League South clubs who, apart from a few who are finding it absolutely hilarious, are genuinely gob-smacked by our demise. They can't understand how this club has gone from being habitual play-off contenders to third from bottom after finishing second la...

Re: Player news

Never mind the managers, the 2 year contracts should be going to our talented youngsters. It will be harder to keep Olly Box anyway now. He's clearly good enough for this level but ofcourse we'll no longer be there after our final game against Truro City next week. It would be nice to see Olly go to...

That's the last time we'll be playing infront of 5000+ for a while.

Re: Yeovil Town v Dartford Sat 13 Apr 2024

I didn't travel to Somerset yesterday. It was already done and dusted. Being a nice day I had a leisurely stroll through the park and around lakes, then headed up to Princess Park for a few beers. Despite being advertised as being open 7 days a week the bar was closed. where is Princess Park? is th...

Re: Yeovil Town v Dartford Sat 13 Apr 2024

Slight exaggeration - it’s not as grim as Stanley Park or Luton. Does look a bit nicer in the sun, still not much libation opportunity though. Depends how much you like Wetherspoon really! Found a few fellow Darts out and about, be nice to think we might get 100 here today and hopefully make a game...

Re: Yeovil Town v Dartford Sat 13 Apr 2024

I doubt if the team would have been celebrating after Thursday considering they were away. So I don't expect there'll be any hangovers. They'll be saving it all for today. The question is, can we gatecrash the party? We did it at Stockport once infront of 6000 spectators, although granted we had a v...

Re: Player news

If we do get relegated and please note I'm still using the word 'if', even though it's extremely likely now, then maybe the club shop should start stocking up on Dartford C&D FC (Community & Development) ear plugs for next season. Because all we're gonna hear from away fans is "Your gro...

Re: Player news

So Olly Box was handed a first team contract ahead of the 2023/24 season. Then shipped off to Margate and had to wait until February before breaking into the first team following the departure of a manager who always said if the youngsters are good enough they're in. The teams been struggling all bl...

The FA have decided the game between Bath and Slough, which was abandoned with Bath trailing 4-2, will not be replayed. The points will be awarded to Slough.

Re: CRAVEN COTTAGE - THE BUILD UP

What's a Premiere League ground? If Fulham were still in the Championship their's probably wouldn't be referred to as such. The reference to Luton being that not so long ago they were a National League outfit yet is their club a Premiere League ground? Yes, but only while they're in it. So let's not...

Re: The state of Dartford football club

If we've lost over £70,000 last year which will be the financial year ending April 2023 then I wonder what the losses will be for this year ending April 2024. And what percentage of that could be down to ill-informed and badly timed decisions? Paying up the remaining months of Mr. Dowson's contract ...

Re: Dartford v Worthing Tue 9 Apr 2024

Under the present structure with the old guard still at the helm, enjoying life as privileged fans, we were never going anywhere. Not unless a day out down the coast involving a piss up in the biggest Wetherspoons pub in the country is classified as going somewhere. I submitted a post earlier in the...

Re: CRAVEN COTTAGE - THE BUILD UP

And so is Luton a Premiere League ground. If anything it was a distraction. If it meant picking up three points I would have taken Motspur Park any day.

Re: Dartford v Eastbourne Borough Mon 1 Apr 2024

It was a strange feeling this afternoon. I should be angry, ranting and raving or drunk. Even both by now. But for 99 minutes I just felt heavily sedated. Indifferent due to being not in the least bit surprised by what I was witnessing. To be honest I think many of us have known the writing has been...

This old Chestnut rears its head every now & again!! You have to weigh up the pros & cons for & against, but the Club do run Champs bar downstairs which isn’t exactly ‘The One Bell’ in Crayford when it comes to an organised success!! So that would need to be put into the equation too?? ...

The company who rent the bar facilities from Dartford FC must be making a profit otherwise they wouldn't be there.

Re: Dartford v Eastbourne Borough Mon 1 Apr 2024

Interesting article by Steve King in today's edition of the Non-League Paper. When it comes to recruitment he's one of the best in the business. Especially his knowledge of players at the level above of whichever division he's managing in at the time. Unlike Dowse his sacking wasn't down to results...
