Which leads to an interesting couple of games against them over xmas esp now they sneaked into top 5 of the table too.


Traditionally gates always slip on the lead up to Christmas though this should be more than offset by a bumper Boston Utd crowd.   Be really interesting to see how many we pull in for that game.

Welcome back wardy!
Am hoping this helps shore the defence a little, attacking wise think we have no problems but watching games this year teams are getting through us too easily without being contested and watching the highlights from kiddie midweek seems the same again.
We'll done to all for getting Tom back.

I think it's a massive task to fjnd an available defender of high enough standard that is A) up for a move and B) 1 that has not already played in the fa cup for another team meaning they'd be cup tied anyway.
We shall see though...
Tricky away tie I'd be happy with a replay next week.

You do have to give the chairman a lot of credit every time he's faced criticism on here he's then gone on to atone for his mistakes.

Chester were impressive yesterday how they played it out from the back every time, and I rate fox very highly but he had a torrid time trying to defend against their wingers.

There is players all over the park who are performing out their skins and the work rate itself is amazing. I do have to agree with Ian though in his interview and if either gash or marriott were to get injured they'd be impossible to replace...and will gash be playing next year still how old is he?
Amazing times though such a buzz at the ground yesterday long may it continue!

You only have to visit other teams in this league and see the work that goes in at some of those clubs in sponsorship to see how far behind we are sadly.
Attendances...people were worried with the price increase that there wouldn't be a rise in attendances and I think most have been suprised in the rise, there's always potential to improve though like you say, apart from the local press how are we trying to attract people? I'm sure there's more people who don't buy newspapers than ever before so what else is or can be done?

Ps take it there's segregation tomorrow does that mean their fans will be out in the rain?!

I suspect a large away following too so 1300 should easily be attainable. Hopefully a good bit of promo in the local papers on Friday.
The locals seem to come out when it's a team they've heard of and of course Chester were a well known league team for a long time.
Going to be a good test of our metal  :comeon: :scarf:

General Discussion / Predictions....
« on: September 30, 2019, 12:39:07 PM »
So ic has said he's taking it 10 games at a time, we have played 12 and just played everyone's favourite for the title so with how the boys have been playing what are people's predictons can they keep the pace up? Pretty much no-one dreamt of the start we have had so what's people's predictions now?
I reckon we'll get in play offs and get Alfreton yet again  :laughcry:

Live on Radio Norfolk according to website.

Doesn't always help the attendance when forecast not looking great. Think if they clear 600 tonight it'll be an achievement.
Wonder what kind if reaction their strikers going to receive  :laughcry:  :laughcry:

I think IC may opt for a back 3 even without Ross being absent - Alfreton's front two caused problems in the home fixture and we did swap in the 2nd half albeit briefly as we then went down to 10 men.  As well as strengthening the midfield hopefully it should give a few more options as I thought we didn't move the ball quickly enough at the weekend vs Gloucester.  So my team would be:

Street
Fryatt, Jones, Smith
Clunan, Carey, Jarvis, Kelly, Fox
Marriott, Gash

Happy that you could bring in Burrows if Clunan or Jarvis needed a rest and possibly Payne for Fox.  Still think letting Toby go to Dereham was a mistake as there isn't much option up front, not that he is in anyway a like for like replacement for Gash (particularly in the form he is in) but he would be a more viable option than anything else we have in the squad.

You wouldn't play henderson? Thought he showed on the little time that he was on against gloucester what we was missing in the midfield and that was someone that wants to attack from midfield, or you keeping him as a backup to the front two?

I would say that our gate receipts are in the top 10 of this League, yet IC says his budget is amongst the lowest.   

Yeah we're one of 10 teams with an average so far over 1000 at home so you're definitely right especially considering we are one of the most expensive too. However what others have touched on is the other areas where full potential is not being reaped so having to pretty much depend on matchday takings then the budget is going to be lower.
I know the commercial manager at hereford and he's constantly running events in the community which not only brings in revenue but positive vibes in the community for the club. They held a festival on at the ground pre season nothing overly special people like gareth gates there but estimates were there were 2000 people there, when you take in not only the ticket profits but the fact that there's 2000 people there that have to eat & drink over an 8 hour event i'm sure they were raking in the money, hence why it's already organised for next year.  The ground sits derelict for half a year something needs to be done while the footballs not on to keep the money coming in.
When you look at this and the fact hereford are in the bottom half of the table, yet still have excellent sponsorship deals and an average home crowd of over 2500 it just shows we are miles behind these kind of teams in so many ways......even if on the pitch we are lucky enough to have a team currently a lot better than many in this league.
Maybe some kind of incentive can be done where leaflets are given out at local schools, free under 16's with every adult ticket or something? Ok it's only 2 at the moment but worded right it could be seen as a decent offer....just need to get the club out there locally not everyone reads the local papers nowadays.

Just see the highlights again from last night on youtube, that marriot last goal really was class how he turned away from 2 players.

Still unsure if there was enough contact for the straight red. Hmm...
