Apparently previously/currently involved with Scouts and as a School Govenor at Middleton and Gayton.

I guess this award has a lot to do with the young lady, Jodie Hopkins.  Been very impressed with the way she has embraced the work in the Community.   All credit to her.

I may be wrong about this, but didn't she leave the Club a few weeks ago?

Bit by her in the last programme explaining she was leaving for a new opportunity

Is she just leaving the employment, or will she no longer be playing for the Ladies as well?

SC has mentioned player sales on the past few podcasts and it is starting to become a concern (for me) in that he somehow sees this as a semi-reliable revenue stream.  I would argue putting players on mulit year contracts (so they potentially attract a fee at the end of a season) has cost us more than it has brought in and I also think there are a few of the current squad who have been brought in speculatively with the view that they will make the club money if they turn into good players that attract interest from higher up the pyramid.  I think there are a lot more building blocks to be put in place before the club can be seen as a good nursery club and also the fans need to buy into that model if it is to be adopted as it will undoubtably have an impact on the pitch.  Also can't blame MH for the lack of player sales funds as he only recruited during the summer unless he argued to keep JB if there was a bid on the table




From memory, one of the main reasons TW was appointed was for his ability to bring players in, develop them, and sell them on for a fee.

Obviously that one didn't work out for whatever reason.



As for this times podcast, I thought it was one of the weaker ones with SC going off on tangents about crypto etc and he didn't really seem to understand how low a level of football Real Bedford actually play at - even Buster made step 5 work!


I can't see that any of the podcast do a lot towards promoting the Club. They appear to me to be more about self promotion. I really can't see what purpose they serve.

The mystery stand sponsor not renewing must have also had an effect on finances this season.

Give it time!  :)

We also have no one who would go for decent money, apart maybe from JB who is injured and Crowther who is key to the defensive line.
.

Apparently the podcast said we didn't sell enough players.

Who exactly did he think we were going to sell that would bring decent money in?  :dontknow:

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.

My pulling a  Cracker days are long passed now Marcus.  Have you had a listen to the latest gospel according to SC ?
Why do people bother to listen the the continuing lies and bull. Doesn't want to pay his debts? Nothing new there!
Something else that does not look good on his CV.

Technically, it's not his debt to pay back.

It's the Clubs.

Does anyone know how many other teams in our league are full time?

Does anyone know what the definition of being full time at Lynn really is?

What hours are put in each week in Ely?

Make that 2 more goals from the right full back position. It's now embarrassing. We beat full time Scunny and then lose to two very ordinary semi pro teams. Time to dig deep and borrow some more wonga. :nilpoints:

Apparently and according to the latest Podcast, he doesn't want to pay back some of what's already been borrowed!

If that's the case, who would lend anymore?

Not that I'm advocating that he should borrow more, even if he could.

Best bit of news for a long time. I don't support any of the teams mentioned, but if I did I would fully support the punitive action they will now face.

Everton's 10-point deduction makes relegation a very real prospect for Man City and Chelsea.

A former financial advisor to Man City believes Pep Guardiola's side and Chelsea run the risk of relegation from the Premier League.

Burnley, Leeds and Leicester intend to sue Everton for a total of 300m; Everton could lose a host of star names including Jordan Pickford



The top stories from the newspapers after Everton were handed a 10-point deduction after breaching the Premier League's financial rules...

THE TIMES

Given the 10-point deduction handed to Everton, the threat of a 30-point deduction or automatic relegation from the Premier League would look to be very real for both Manchester City and Chelsea should charges be proved in an independent regulatory commission.

Everton's sanction was for a single breach of Premier League rules, while City have been charged with 115 alleged breaches - although City's case is not likely to be settled for at least two years.

Chelsea remain under investigation but charges look inevitable given that the new owners have self-reported what appear to be substantial payments that would have broken Premier League rules during the previous ownership under Roman Abramovich



No wonder John Terry referred to Roman as the best Chairman of all time.
