Re: New Director

My long term business plan for the club was to get an ex-premier league player to pay Stockport County to let him manage them. (Ex-players have the money so it makes sense for them to pay to get on the ladder, giving them something to do) I can only think of about ten reasons why this is a bonkers ...

Re: AFC Fylde - The gift that keeps on giving.

I've never known a club try so hard to be so dislikable. Whether it's their intention or not, they do a splendid job of it.

Re: Squad assessment

Somehow we need to either bring in the cash, or generate it, so that we can retain the good players have / get for a while longer before selling them on. This requires outside investment in the club or a significant increase in crowds. Supping an extra beer in the bar pre match isn't going to achie...

Re: Season declared null and void

I've no problem with them wanting to continue but when it's such a small league you should also cut the promotion place to just one, shared between both leagues. Champions of the North can playoff against the Conf South champions to replace (presumably) Dover. But if their real concern is peoples me...

Re: Squad assessment

I think it's a little difficult to judge some while we've been playing a pretty ineffective formation. If get back to proper 4-4-2 Watson stuff I don't think we need many additions, but I think we need 'star players' in several key positions if we want to compete with the playoff teams. I don't know...

Re: What can supporters do to help?

"In SOME of the cases". Oh ok. So you'd only deny SOME hungry children adequate food. How about meeting for a beer or two pre match when we can return to watching the team we both support ?. We can then discuss this, beer is on me. This is a footie forum. And... No i wouldn't deny any hun...

Re: Wrexham's New Owners

Could have been us if we listened to Danehill Dancer instead of Ormskirk Yellow.

Re: All matches off

Seeing as Kettering have issued a statement saying that they won't play until they either get a grant or fans back and Curzon Ashton were refusing to play last night, that should take Saturday and Tuesday's fixtures out of Southport's hands. I think it’s important that we announce that we also won’...

Re: Brackley away Tuesday ?????

There would have to be at least 13 clubs in the NL willing to continue in order to pass the notion of continuing the season. The best I could come up with would be to relegate the ‘bottom placed’ side and replace them with the winner of a playoff between the NLN and NLS champions. Even works on an e...

Re: Brackley away Tuesday ?????

So close run affair with current voting standing at 15 Against and 17 For. I do wonder how relevant a vote is. Even if most teams do vote to carry on, you'll still have a good number of teams in each league unable or unwilling to agree to finance the rest of the season. I'm personally in favour of ...
