Get where ya coming from Stan.  Just see The Magician in the role that Cameron King played for us.  King seems to be making a decent fist of things at Halifax.

At this stage its all whispers and hopes.  Exciting though aint it ?  :salute:
Where I'm coming from? Those are your words Mallard from a thread called Rumours that I started a while ago when I first heard the rumour about Hoolahan. I was just pulling your leg, wondering what caused you to change your mind?

Wes is a good call.   How about Taylor Parr a player we were keen on before.  One local name to throw in the pot.  How about Sonny Carey from Wroxham ?
I'm not sure Wes the Magician would thrive at this level of football.

In every League there will be teams that are more physical than others - Leeds Utd of old, Wimbledon of old were two of those who were known as "Dirty". Some of those clubs who we saw at The Walks last season could throw their weight about - some were downright thugs.

Being a teenager in the 70's, I still hate Leeds!!!!!
Me too, although they could play as well as bully.

Building not really my area. I may donate a bit more to the fund if that helps. I can't see why the trust wouldn't put some of their contingency fund to good use the raise funds subsequently to replace what was used.

Alternatively why doesn't the club spend the latest windfall on the improvements and fund raise to replace that,cut out the middle man? :dontknow:
Fair comment.

By helping the club in this way the trust are surely helping the long term future of the club and that would prevent any need for a future bail out if the club does flounder later on.
I would be interested to know what others think about the trust's reluctance to use any of that 60 or so K that they have. I understand that these are early bridge building days between club and trust and I understand what the fund is being retained for but... the club needs support now.

Taking money at a bar is completely different to making money at a bar, just ask the ex landlords of the 18 pubs that are closing each week in the uk. I totally agree that a good bar adds to match day atmosphere but selling a hundred or so pints of beer on a Saturday afternoon will generate very little if any profit by time staff costs etc are taken into consideration. I just don't understand the infatuation by some people on here about beer. There's more PROFIT to be made in tea,coffee and food.  :cheers:

If you have a successful bar on a match day it can be busy from start to finish, all of the away grounds I visited last season all he busy bars, all with bar staff run off their feet? I think you will find that even with the very limited choice at our bar and the dragon surroundings and atmosphere more than 100 pints are sold? Why do you think the Lord Napier bends over backwards for Lynn fans on a Saturday afternoon? Do you think they make no profit, how much better would it be if that profit went to the club instead of the Napier?  :dontknow:
I've been to a few away games and I haven't seen that many bars that are run of their feet. Rushden seemed busy but it was a pokey little bar. A busy bar with atmosphere is nice and might pull a bit of money in but not critical to a club's finances. The best way for a club to make money is to charge a fair price for tickets and get decent attendances. The new ticket prices are clearly seen as fair by about 99% of the fans who use this forum. It remains to be seen what the attendances will be next season but ticket price increases haven't had a negative impact on attendances thus far so no reason to think there will be any drop off next season.


Don't need a decent bar now Stan, gate receipts and a pocket full of wonga in Mr Cleeve's pocket, instant success, Kerching.  :cup2:
The money goes into the pockets of the players not the chairman and I don't begrudge them a penny of it. The club isn't a cash cow that Cleeve will milk dry! He's already put in shed loads of his own money. Yes, I am sure that in the long term he will hope for some sort of return but I am convinced that his main motive for taking on project KLTFC is the buzz of making great things happen.

Any news on Harry Limb?
Rumours about PNS Stan but I feel the lad has a lot of unrealised potential and Culverhouse may want to keep him as a player that can develop.
Cheers Stan
