Strange the Chairman seems to have stopped doing his podcast.   I remember we had 3 in one week.  Now not even doing one a fortnight.


Perhaps they weren't paying dividends? :bankrupt:

I have nowhere near as much know-how about the running of the club, especially the financial Hargy and bargey..
However, I’m definitely in the camp, if there is one, that thinks SC is the best thing to happen to this club since Peter Tough should have been in the England squad !  No (!), the doubters might be right and we could implode, but fingers crossed for the man “who bought a football club”, as far as I’m concerned !  Only disappointment so far is the Friendly list.  League clubs respect the standard we’re now in enough to appreciate that friendlies against NL clubs are serious work-outs, not friendly testimonial type games for youngsters - so I think we should have tried for a league club.  BUT, there are some good friendlies there too, so only a muted complaint.    Now we need to get this virus sorted.  Peter Tough might have the answer in his bucket !......



Talking of buckets,anyone seen Stan lately? :dontknow: :laughcry: :laughcry: :laughcry:

Would it be worth seeing if you can fit in another season ticket raffle before the season kicks off, I would be willing to gamble another tenner? :dontknow:

The answer Griss is Napoleon Bonaparte


'Attack is the best form of defence' was coined in the USA in the 18th century. It was initially intended to be a military tactic rather than an everyday maxim.

The earliest version of it that I know of is in R. W. Gibbes' Documentary History of the American Revolution, in which he attributes this comment to a W. H. Drayton and dates it as 1775:

I would think 600k would be the benchmark for the National League.  Some of the really ‘ambitious’ clubs are paying out much more than this.

Going on MH saying 1500 would not cover our wage bill I presume we come far over 600k? :dontknow:

No offence to contributors on this forum as they all have the stability and progress of the club at heart.  However, I don’t believe that schemes such as cigarette-style cards of the players, photo-ops, etc., would appeal to the wider area of people that we should now be able to interest and attract.  SC has run this club better than any other Chairman, and in a way that a fan-rum club would never be able to better.  We should now be able to attract people who in the past would never have thought of coming to a game, and that is where our attentions should be aimed.  We therefore need reps for all the villages to round up and enthuse new supporters, and THAT is where our efforts should be made to help finance the club.  We must think bigger.....

We are already a fan run club as the bulk of the money taken to run the club is taken from the fans! We have failed over the last few seasons to attract a major sponsor,who will be our sponsor this season,will we attract an actual sponsor or a sponsor that is owner owned? I brought a football club, but actually I  didn't,the fans did!

Fantastic news.  More season tickets options will, I am sure, will now be taken up.

Main problem with Season Tickets is the "No Refund" policy.  :red card:

Not transferable either, meaning if you can't get to a game, for whatever reason, nobody else can use your ticket.


You mean other teams allow this?  :dontknow:
