Darlington vs United of Manchester by MartinKamenarski
Despite the clash of the money, the hush for fame and notorious transfers in the UEFA Champions league, there is a fantastic match for the other side of the football - the true football fans of the game.Despite the match is between teams that are not famous and are in the lower leagues, the fans of both teams are so passionate that they will mostly make the atmosphere it was in the old cold nights in Birmingham, Liverpool or Leeds that we used to watch in the XX century.
Darlington is a team founded in 1883 and till 2017 it is a club of the working class.It never had a management.I watched some videos about this team when one fan said - "We are what we are, we care for football, we are the supporter society and Darlington will always be ours".Do you know what? Last season Darlington was one of the best teams in the league that walked over everyone but the National League border did not let them play promotion play-offs because they did not have the 500 covered seats needed across two stands at their Blackwell Meadows.But it wont be otherwise when the team is owned by the supporters and there is a limited budget.With the passion of the city, the stadium this summer was fully covered.
However, their last season was absolutely amazing.22-10-10 with 89 goals scored! How that sounds to you? I asked myself that question but the answer came a little bit later at the start of the new season.Darlington started the new campaign with 3 wins in a row, scoring 4 goals against Alfreton town and and Gainsbrough and scoring two goals against Salford City.Last performances of the team are really poor but today is the best way to return in the game with a win in the derby.
On the other hand, who is United of Manchester and why they sound exactly like the glorious reds? The club was founded in 2005 by Manchester United fans following Malcolm Glazer's takeover of the Old Trafford club.I spoke with some people and they told me the real reason.The laws in the Premier League are really serious and strict that true lovers feel like they are in prison.In the lower leagues you can show your free passion and be the real red ultra.
However, the club is semi-professional and currently plays in the National League North. The club regularly attracts crowds of more than 2,500 - several times the league average.FC United seeks to change the way that football is owned and run, putting supporters at the heart of everything. United of Manchester is a team that mostly attracts and score goals, the team does not have great ambitions.
All in all, this match really deserve the follow.If you want to see little but full English stadium with and enjoy the 90 minutes classical songs of the English supporters, you are in the last place.Some words about the game - Darlington squad has much better class and they desperately need a win to climb-up the table.
