General Discussion / Re: The big vote

Iím not celebrating yet, but fingers are well and truly crossed.....  If we do get the promotion, two thoughts have arrived.....   1.  That crowd of 4K against York Might well be in jeopardy, and the non-league world would be thoroughly jolted.....  and 2.  In this era of statue removal, quite rightly IMO, A NEW one of SC should be sculpted and erected in the middle of the Tuesday Market Place !!!!

Nobody mentioned politicians.  Itís circus performers that weíre cited !....

General Discussion / Re: Next season's squad

Lots of playerís names mentioned on this thread appear to ones that some have doubts about, or donít mention at all.  Without involving myself in the various opinions, Iíll just say that IMO any resultant squad that does not include the names of Ward, Kelly, Power and Marriott will be a lower standard squad.  Just to expand a little, I believe Smith  and McCauley are easily our best CB pairing, with Ward as back-up rather than Fryatt.  I am still surprised and disappointed that we have seen the last of Nathan Fox.  Very good news that Barrows is staying and both Pedros !  Problem is, I donít think it would be safe to start football again at any level until we are no longer a country with one of the worldís largest death statistics.  Stay safe.  BTW, very pleased to see that our Chairman appears to have retained his interest and support - probably our best signing overall....

Any news on Power ?  Sensational in a couple of games, and canít see teams keeping him quiet for long - even at NL level...

My glass is no longer half full because I downed my 3rd and final 5 minutes ago - hence this post of what some will call doom and gloom, but I call reality.  I can imagine no football at all until Sept 21 at the earliest.  Even then, I feel the competitions at every level could only re-commence in the same position they were at the start of this very unfortunate season.  Iíve no idea how the finances of clubs, Chairmen, Directors, players, and workers can be calculated, but must hope that they will all engage generosity and good grace in the discussions to come.  So, no answers, just hopes for all concerned....

Very disappointing that football cannot be concluded satisfactorily at any level.  But surely we have to face the fact that there can be no more games this season, and probably none next season either.  We are in a very serious situation for mankind itself, and any decision to put wishes ahead of reality could be disastrous for life as we know it.  If we, as a species, are determined to keep reality ahead of wishful thinking, we may be able to enjoy the lighter side of life again when it is safe to do so, in perhaps a couple of years.  I realise the vast majority of people do hold reality as the most important viewpoint, but Iím just trying to put it in a nutshell, at least my own !  And of course, my fingers are crossed for our club and all the personnel involved, starting with the Chairman.....and, personally, I feel the season should be cancelled and wiped altogether....

Donít think the question can include not considering skill or ability.  I know a bloke who is one hell of a hole digger;  he puts his back into from 7 in the morning and never gives less than 100%.  Heís just the same on a football pitch.  Trouble is, heís ruddy hopeless at football !

Yes Colin.  I remember those days weíll, and the players.  As I recall, a typical team would have been Walls; Proverbs, Baker; Williamson, Bone, Wright; Bacon, Edwards, Donovan, King, Partridge.  The Southern Premier was much stronger, in terms of ďbiggerĒ clubs than the one the club left recently, with a number of member clubs having since moved into the EFL, and others into the National League top division.  Good days.  Crowds were bigger, ( though ours are catching up these days).  End terraces weíre substantially bigger, ( a nerdish thing of mine, I know !). I fervently hope that, if we come out of these very difficult weeks and months relatively unscathed in terms of health and finance, we can make the climb up to a level reached by many of our peer opponents from those days.....

Very good way of describing it, B & G.......

Thanks to all for the update on the ref....

I agree Grissles - £500 was indeed a good effort and result....

For those of us not there, are we now reading that the the ref was black ?  Iíve got that the ref is supposed to have made bad decisions, and therefore suffered abuse from some of the crowd.  But Iím getting the impression that the racist incident to a black person may have been to the ref himself - or have I jumped to the wrong conclusion ?

I intend to donate as well when Iíve seen the forthcoming video.  But, I keep seeing suggestions of a  ďQuiz NightĒ......  Surely youíd need about a hundred of them to make any impression on the sums needed either to survive or progress ?!.....
Anyway, the big thing is first to survive as individuals, then revert to helping the club to achieve National or League status.  On the survival front, donít follow Stanley Johnsonís ignorance by going to the pub, and so far Iíve heard Sunakís plans for businesses, but havenít heard any plans to help out the people who rent, or pull the pints, or turn up when offered the chance on Zero-hour contracts....

Itís a sad reflection of our country at present, and has been to a certain extent for too many years.  Some sympathy for the accused, though I donít feel it myself,  may be found when we realise that his attitude is prevalent in too high a percentage of our population, and to such an extent that he may not even realise the impropriety of his behaviour.  Racism is a societal problem, and not the fault of football.

We ALL want the club to survive, and eventually thrive.  I certainly hope the Chairman and sponsors are able to stay on board without too much financial injury.  However, the phrase ď in the scheme of thingsĒ has never been more prevalent.  Virtually all of us have far more to consider, worry about, and tackle than the future of ANY sporting venture for the foreseeable future.  We shall turn our attentions to sport when the new world, in sport and out, is finally established.  I have a feeling that world will be vastly different to that of our current concerns like football and Brexit....
