General Discussion / Next season
« on: June 10, 2020, 06:30:19 PM »
With the seemingly positive news coming out of the EFL meeting.   Do we dare look ahead to next season ( whenever it may start).?

Season Tickets and general admission costs will be one of the first things to be sorted.
What are people’s thoughts on this.  How would the following sound ?

General Ground ( standing) £18
Seating  right and left hand side £21
Seating  mid stand     £25.

Then how about a £1 surcharge per ticket sold to go to the War Chest.

Tin helmet is on, but  for Step 1 Football I think the prices are about right. ( based on 2019/2020 prices)

Thoughts ?

Great full page interview with new signing Alex Brown...

Also it seems all Clubs in the National League are going to be canvassed on how to end the current campaign, and asked to vote on it.

Perhaps Mark could explain what this all could actually mean for us ?

With the Arsenal Manager confirmed to have  CV and the Premier League calling an emergency meeting for today, I can’t see much football being played going forward.    I do wonder if Saturday will be the last game of the season at The Walks.

Sometimes There are much bigger things than a game of football.

General Discussion / Bradford PA at home

After a great week ( 4 points on the Road), it’s a long awaited return to The Walks on Tuesday night.  Can’t see us slipping up Here and expect to see us return to the top of the table ( how good does that sound) and with 3 games in hand.

Can see IC having a bit of a tinker again to rest up certain players.  Maybe Jarv, Gash, Hendo. 

Be interesting to see if the CV has any affect on the gate for Tuesday. Also there is a Premier League/EFL meeting on Monday to see what they will do with regard to supporters coming to games.  I guess the Non League game will follow their lead.

Fingers crossed we get some Football back at the Walls on Tuesday, but not at any cost.

General Discussion / Gateshead away

This looks a tough one.  Hopefully Lynn will do an overnighter to give them every chance of getting something here ? 

York travel to Alfreton and following two poor home results.    Could be interesting

Two tough away games coming up this week.   Squad should be well rested and nearly upped to full numbers ( not sure where Clunan and Fryatt are at).

Would take 3 points from the 2 games.  York also at home tomorrow night to Hereford.

Great piece on the Club with Stephen Cleeve giving his thoughts on how far we have come, Ian Culverhouse,  Full/part time IF we gain promotion.   Ground upgrades  done, and still to be done.  All kinds of stuff.   

Well worth a read(page 7)

Also there is an almost full page on Wroxham’s 2-0 win over Stowmarket in the FA Vase, with a crowd of over 1,000.   Wroxham go into Monday’s Quarter Final draw.

Wroxham have been draw at Home to Bitton (whenever that is).  Game to be played at the end of the month.

General Discussion / Well, who saw that coming.

Bad day at the office without a doubt.  We were poor from the first minute.  Never strung anything together.  At half time IC could have permed any 3 from about 8 to take off.  We looked lethargic, almost disinterested. 

Having said all of that the season these players have given us then we can accept one off day.  York winning has made it all that much closer at the top.  Next Saturday we need our good friends and rivals to do us a big favour.

I seem to remember certain fans were gagging for this guy to take over the Club

General Discussion / A few thoughts from the York game.
« on: January 19, 2020, 10:43:33 AM »
1.  Fantastic crowd of over 4,000.  The 3rd biggest in Non League Football.

2.  Car parking, rumours are that cars were being towed away from Tennyson Ave and parking tickets being handed out like confetti.   I seem to remember for the Oldham game the Club hired the parking at St James School. Surely if we had done this and also the same at the Hospital it would have got a few hundred cars out of the equation.  At a fiver a pop the club should have had some up sell there on the game.    Missed a trick there Mark.  Something that might need thinking about for the future.

3.  During York’s warm up balls were being loaded into Tennyson Road and cars being struck.  Would it make sense for some kind of high fence netting to be installed to prevent this ?

4. Toilets. There were long queues for the these on the main stand side, with males using the females and disabled facilities, and of course they were in a disgusting state.

Just a few things we can improve on, going forward.
