Surely the point here is that if the prices and the environment were what the majority consider to be fair and reasonable they would not consider going elsewhere for their pre match pint and burger, tea, coffee etc during the game?

I really do believe that at this level 15 is excessive.

Looking forwatrd to this one in the FA Trophy...Last season Spriggsy was quite a prolific scorer for them, playing up front. Chris Bacon was also with them but unsure as to whther he has moved on?

Boonie and Biff did a good job for a while and were both true Linnets.

I don't have a clue!

On the subject of Gidman, wasn't he a little unhappy about being given the sack and made various ''suggestions' about Dollimixture ?  :laughcry:

Could be some great stories to come out,  Seems like Keith Rudd has a boatload he could share.  Wasn't there a day when the Lynn team went on strike ( was this Dollimore days as well ?) and the Directors of the opposing team offered to pay the Lynn players to get the game on ?

In recent years we have the Day at Bishop Stortford  and The Oldham game in front of a full house.   Followed by the demise of the Club Under Bobbins and Chinn....

Could be a good read.

Those of us of a certain age who were at Everton!!

Good idea.

Ok... everyone write a chapter about the football club they know.  The best season,  best goals,  best away days and anything else you want to share. 

I'll compile it and have it proof read before publishing.

Get me 80,000 words and we could have book on shelves to help the club coffers by Christmas.

Great idea Mallard.

I agree - great idea and there are many with a fund of general and much inside knowledge to contribute. Not least Keith Rudd and David Wright.

I thought that the much missed swimming pool had reopened!

Any changes that reduce travelling time and related expenditure surely makes good sense.

What a fabulous gesture - an exercise in how to win new supporters and an illustration of just how much the club appreciate the support of the faithful through good and bad times...............Maybe those that buy season tickets now might enjoy something similar if and when we make it to the Conference and beyond??

Maybe I'm wrong and out of date. Maybe I don't mean thuggish. Perhaps just a more defensive midfielder. There are quite a few young lads in the team and they might need a minder of some sort though. I recall the Trophy game away at Nantwich where Mike Clunan got deliberately battered by them in the first 20 mins.

If no one was added to the squad now, what do you think the midfield set up would be?

IMO we have never adequately replaced Richard Bunting who performed that holding role admirably though admittedly at a lower level. The equivalent of the conductor of the orchestra?

This role is particulary important in away games and when the opposition are in the ascendancy..To coin several phrases..........Someone who can offer the back three (or four) protection, who can put their foot on the ball, break up the opposition's play and buy your team some time......whilst always keeping things simple?

I think that at one time it was assumed that a great footballer would automatically make a great manager................Absolutely no reason why that should be the case as has been proven many times over.

One thing is for sure it is going to be an interesting season? At this stage I would happily settle for us being consistently in play off contention and enjoying decent cup runs.....Too much to ask?

A I have previously posted re George Thomson. Having him on contract seemed to be of absolutely no value to the club when he signed for Chester? Surely the only point in contracting players is to ensure that if they are sold on the club will reap some financial benefit?????????????
