Re: BARROW V Halifax match thread

Really don't get why we wouldn't give this our best shot

We won't go down we won't go up. Why not have a go? Never understood that mentality. Those lads from 2010 will take those memories with them forever and so will the fans.

It's what it's all about isn't it?

Re: Statement from Bluebirds Trust Chair Steve Herbert

I suppose a club is only worth what someone is willing to pay... would someone really buy barrow football club for half a million with little chance of getting the money back?

Seems a fair valuation to me.

What did casson pay? About 600k was it?

Re: Thoughts - Pay what you want

I'm sure other clubs have tried this and must have a barometer for if it's successful. Short term you may get a kicker but longer term would we flatline back to 1200 gates. Also when do you pay? On your way out? Might be hard to business plan. How much would get in if you got stuffed 4nil? I'm not s...

Re: Club Statement: New Chairman - Paul Hornby

The bottom line is we are much better much stronger than we were and for that, I thank him. Are we really? How? Genuine question because I would beg to differ. The club is no more sustainable now than it was before he took over, he's leaving behind absolutely nothing in terms of structure or improv...

Re: Club Statement: New Chairman - Paul Hornby

General thoughts - Loved his passion and ambition when he first arrived. He had a vision and it got us all excited. But like many businessmen come football club owners he completely underestimated the complex nature of it all. I think he got tired of all the negatively and the money he was ploughing...

Re: Grant Holt gone.

If he was playing for free would you slag him? No. It's not his fault we paid over the market price for him. Christ if someone offered you a load more money would you take it? Course you would. Not his fault the money he was on. When we signed him there was a lot of doom and gloom it gave everyone a...

Re: RETAINED / RELEASED LIST.

Because it's pretty much common practice in football. If he's on 1000 a week at barrow and Torquay offer 500 it isn't very appealing for the player. So often to cut losses the current club will still pay a contribution. Barrow paying 500 is better than paying 1000 if we don't want him. You will oft...
