Re: Barrow v Kidderminster match thread

In terms of discounts, getting a company to "sponsor" the drive to cover any losses is a great idea if possible. One way of doing it would be to be a bit more imaginative with the catering contracts. For instance, charge £x as a flat fee for the right to flip burgers at Holker Street then get incre...

Re: Barrow v Kidderminster match thread

Here's my personal situation...I don't live in Barrow. This means that it costs me £15 on a train to get to Barrow, £14 to get into a game, £2.50(?) for a lazily-written program, and £3.50 for a shit cheese burger. It's getting to the point where I'd be better off flying to Munich every week, to wa...

Re: Barrow v Kidderminster match thread

The basic problem is the product. The public will come if there's attractive football on offer. OK yesterday's second half was quite entertaining, but the first half was more typical of recent fare. Mainly Barrow start with the attitude of what we've got we'll hold, so Baylis sets his team up to de...

Re: Meet the Board Night

All sounds well and good and not before time - maybe they have something to announce too... http://www.thefootballforum.net/index.php?/topic/210003-barrow-afc-plan-new-l9-million-pound-stadium/ That's a drivel-ridden, six month old thread from some forum or other.

Then surely that's when you put your hand up and challenge what you're hearing, no?

Re: Barrow v Alfreton thread

BSN is just as much of a money waster as the national, it all depends how you're set up as a club. Personally, I think we need to fight tooth and nail to stay in this league. It's much better than BSN. Yes, we had a few jolly japes touring crap grounds in that league but I've no desire to go back to...

Re: Bayliss - This weeks rhetoric

I don't think its even a case of having to revert to 4-4-2. Yesterday's formation could have been more threatening if the wingers had been more advanced, if Baker had been bombing forward (as he did very well last season) and supporting Boyesy through the middle. The players need to take responsibil...

Re: New Winger

He ripped Edwards a new one when we played up at the Theatre of Empty Seats at the back end of last season. Hopefully he'll be what we need out wide.

Eh?

No pitch inspections were announced so why wouldn't you just come for 3pm?
