Definitely smacks of a double account, you wouldn't put your full name as your username and thus it sounds like the name of a football manager regen.

Re: The best Left Full-Back in our Non-League days?

Went to see Barrow play Barnet a long, long time ago - Chilts was given the absolute run around by a player who later went on to play for Chelsea (can't remember his name, someone will no doubt) The home support gave Chilts as much stick as I've ever seen a player get (all good humoured) and to thi...

Re: Barrow v north Ferriby match thread

They are terrible for a reason. A village team, no investment, low crowds. They have done great to be where they are. They played more football than we did Fact. Give them some respect instead of a cheap shot. We have a millionaire owner who has put no investment in, apart from a new boiler for hot...

Re: Maidstone Match Thread

I predict this degenerating slowly into a morass of pish (if that's possible) as a former member of this forum enlivens his shift by upsetting middle aged men who should know better, occasionally including me Actually in the case of this middle aged man, a former member of this forum is no problem ...

Re: Maidstone Match Thread

I guess i must be missing the obvious then. My view is that to survive and progress in the football league will take more expenditure on the ground, playing staff, off field staff, general infrastructure, travel, training etc - Yes there will be additional income from TV deals and a probable short ...

Re: Maidstone Match Thread

I would be interested to see the evidence and facts behind that assumption. My educated guess would be it would certainly cost more to run a football league club that a National League one. Whether the additional income from being in this league covered those costs is impossible to tell at the mome...

Re: Maidstone Match Thread

Theres a few fans who seem to think the club could run in the FL solely on TV money. Theres sadly not a lot being put in place to aid the running of the club at the moment, Paul Cassons cash injections will one day run out. It would not cost anymore to run in the Football League , than it does in t...

Re: Floodlights

[ So, although I agree about the issues, can we not make a bit more effort to at least enjoy some facts just now? Near play offs, trophy quarters and third round of FA Cup. It is possible to be happy without being a happy clapper. Spot on! Steve you are right in what you say about enjoying the curr...

Re: Floodlights

Just close your eyes for a second, take a deep breath and imagine Casson pulling his money at midnight tonight. And just close YOUR eyes and ask where we would would be if Mr Casson HADN'T put his money in. Out of existence ! I dont think anyone is disputing that - the point I made was that promoti...

Re: Floodlights

TTK The takeover by Paul Casson 'had' to happen to help the club survive. If anything Paul probably got carried away and suggested lots of things that he might like to do but without at that stage full Knowledge of how difficult some might be. The irony is that I don't think he needed to promise or ...

New ground isnt enough - look at Morecambe . People will come for their own reasons and stop for their own reasons. Its hard to attract the 'new' fans and even harder to get them to stay.
