It sounded positive that SC has a masterplan which will hopefully see the Club working to a break even model next year.  Not sure if this something new he has come up with or the idea of summer concerts will be going ahead.  If it is something new has he lost interest in the concert idea ?

Just a guess, but could it be his version of this fan equity idea?

If so, and it's linked to the big loan the club now has being written off, I don't think I'll be holding my breath on that one.





Canít see how writing off that loan will equate to the Club reaching a break even point next year.  I though SC was having to pump in circa £200k to balance the books.  The loan plus interest is to be paid back over what, 20 years ?

According to the new Podcast the reasons we are struggling more this season is Three fold....

1.   No Cup run this year.. ( is this really factored into finance for a year ?)

2.  Lack of players being sold on  ( again how can this be factored into any budget?)

3.  Lack of Crowds turning up to watch, ( SC struggles to understand why fans wonít pay overpriced admission to watch crap football).

Last two results for sure are disappointing.  Was surprised that after the Managerís comment post Stourbridge that he went with the same starting 11.  Be interesting after Tuesday performance what he goes with at Tamworth.

The new guy comes across as a really good guy but then so was Mark Hughes.  AL has gained 14 points out of a possible 30.  Which is not a bad return, however we are now back in the drop zone.  Honeymoon period over ? 

Important period pre Christmas coming up.

SC wants all that debt written off.  ( thought it was £1 on admission to cover this ?) He not only wants to get out of that debt but he also wants the local Council to support the Club.    Sounds very much like now he wants the tax payer to pay for his hobby.   

Plenty of interesting stuff in SCís latest podcast

Surprised that after how unhappy AL was with Saturday performance he has gone with the same starting 11.  Shows a lot of faith.  I guess after turning over Scunny last Tuesday the players got a free pass from Saturday

Good on you Mark for paying some.  However i guess as a fan you would be paying for everything on the list if it wasnít for the fact that you were doing a live Commentary as Nickís support.  Do you still attend most games these days, compared to your volunteering days ?   

Have to admit that the news coming out of the Club is not at the same level as it was during MHís days.  Still things change and move on.   On that subject isnt SC due to air an up to date Podcast ?

I guess it depends on peopleís definition of ĎVolunteerí.  I donít see that as someone who gets free travel, admission, hotel accommodation, food, drink etc all paid for.  Yes time is FOC.  Grey area at best.  Fans of a Football Club have to pay out of their own pockets for those that some enjoy as  perks.

Interesting podcast available on YouTube with Lineker, Shearer and Crystal Palace owner Steve Parish.   Premier League looking to clean house before a regulator is appointed.

Spot on Doug. Time to get back on the Horse Tuesday.  Though I have to admit I was hoping with a win today we could have pulled Aldershot at home.   

Aldershot lost 2-1 today at Rochdale.  The winning goal coming from Kario Mitchell, the lad we sold to Chesterfield for decent money.  Now thatís a gift that keeps on giving  :thanks:

Oh well after the Lord Mayorís Show.  Doesnít it always happen.  Beat top of the table One day get beat by a team struggling at a level below the next.

Least we can concentrate on the relegation battle now.  On to Tuesday and hopefully pick up a point or three.

Agree with you on Bart, Tony. When he first arrived I really didnít fancy him at all.  Under AL he has become a totally different animal.  Never stopped running all night and not ya typical big man down the middle type, was pulling their central defenders into positions Iím sure they didnít want to be.

What a result that was !!! Moved us another place away from the danger zone.  Looking at the bigger picture AL is certainly stamping his mark in things.  We now look difficult to beat and competing for every ball and actually outfought and outmuscled The Iron last night.  Ok Scunny had the lionís share of possession, which with the budget, talent, and share size of a former Championship Club you would expect.  Lynn though matched all of that and more with determination which comes with a squad where each individual knows their job and collectively had the Will to win.

One downside was the size of the crowd.  Thought Scunny would have brought more and certainly thought Lynn would have had a lot more.  A game like that should have produced an 1800-2000 gate.  I guess times are hard
