Joe must be delighted with his investment return thus far? If so, surely it is only a matter of time before he pays a visit?

They have two decent joint  managers in Luke Steele and Michael Gash who both still play when needed and they attract the right sort of players who seem to fit in well  with players all ready there.  they also have a decent catchment area to pick from so they most probably don't have to pay over the odds to players. they also have a decent
ground and set up assume that's due to there commercial side . been there a few times and  i thought the facilites were good, they don't charge over the odds so people spend.

I think that sums it up.

Good commercial activity. Good recruitment. Reasonable facilities. Good pricing. 

Good catchment area for players? Yes, but being on A1 they will also have a lot of competition for players, as lots of Clubs in a 50 mile catchment area/ one hour travelling time. Swings and roundabouts on that one.

In summary, a well run club on and off the pitch?

Ryan Fryatt doing a great job for them. Another local boy who was under appreciated?

I wonder if Lim knows Joe?   :dontknow:

Or even Sid, for those who can recall the British Gas sell off. Fact or fantasy?

Yet another vanity project. Reading that brought with it a degree of familiarity.

Dilly is right, we have made little or no progress in recent months, its great to pick up points on the road, but when we do move up the league its mainly  because results have gone for us elsewhere.
As for the football , its awful , why we sign forwards for, I dont know , they get little or no service.
Also dont believe everything you read about what goes on behind the scenes , and overseas for that matter.
are you saying that we should be taking everything we read and hear with a shovel full of salt?

No surely not. More like a lorry load?

Think those 3 would have been a bit long in tooth to have been on the same pitch as Gazza, Rod😂

How about Frank Worthington up top ?

Mall' i wasn't really thinking generationally - just players. I would probably also have found room for Best and Ronaldinho! The football equivalent of the Harlem Globetrotters?

Mallard, No Mick would not ever cast his eyes toward Stan.

Not sure how to write this in allowable language, but Stan was indicating to Mick that the referee masturbated.

Imagine what punishment would have been dished out today had that been caught on camera ?

That would have made for an interesting VAR review?!

Maverick.  In the same mould as the likes of Tony Curie, Rodney Marsh.    He is the sort of player Dilly would play every week in every position.

I would loved to have watched a team that featured all three of them plus Gazza. Entertainers one and all.

Stan was a hugely talented footballer and a great character.

RIP

Where funding is concerned, for many football supporters at all levels the end justifies the means?

Which is why football needs an independent regulator, there are many walks of life where protections are deemed necessary to avoid 'the market' having a free reign (often at the detriment of individuals) and to me football fits this to a tee.  The landscape needs to be changed  to reduce the incentive to gamble to progress which just creates round after round of unaffordable wage inflation as others have to keep up to compete.

And the moral ground, where the money is sourced!

Man City, Chelsea, Newcastle. The list goes on!

Thank goofnes we have an owner who would appear to be a member of the Magic Circle.
