That's where it's bad if you are full time, but maddening if you are part time, have taken time off work, have just arrived at the ground and then..........

The other side is:- you expect the full time club to be more organised and decisive when it comes to this type of situation, it was snowing most of the day over there. Shambolic Chesterfield with absolutely no excuse Lynn should recover travel and wage expenses for this, even if they have to push for it! !!!

It happens.

Alvechurch visited us a couple of season ago only to find the game had been called off.

I seem to remember quite a bit in the Press at the time as they believed the game could and should have been called off earlier than it was.

Annoying and expensive for the visiting Club but I suppose itís just one of those things Clubs have to put up with.

Ridiculous statement, a quick look at tonights postponed fixtures and  a little geographical knowledge should tell you, extreme weather conditions passed over the area 2ish hours before kick off. Unlucky

I'm not quite sure how Carol's attempt at Michael Fish prophesy lead her to believe that the game was always going to be off. The pitch has excellent drainage (1 game  lost in 11 years) and regardless of what forecasts she was referring their was no precipitation in the area throughout the day and after the efforts to remove overnight snow the pitch was perfectly payable. Naturally with fixtures piling up every effort was made to get the game on. Up to the deluge (please note Rotherham,  Notts and the scabs suffered the same late fate) there wasn't a problem.

With regards to 'having to take time off work' you are undermining your clubs own achievements you are in what is virtually a full time professional league, enjoy it.The fact that fullback Fred is on 'earlies' down the mill, wouldn't be a consideration.

Using the 'covid times' card is a bit low especially when considering (although not against rules, but it doesn't sit well with some) car sharing.

Anyway all the best for the season, it's just unfortunate we can't visit your town (there would have been a good following) and you cant enjoy the  Technique experience with all the excellent local ale houses and eateries within 5 minutes of the ground.

That doesn't sound like the Carol I know, but it does sound like someone else I know at the Club. Scripted?

Looks like Chesterfield wonít have to worry about games being called off, going forward.

A medical centre received angry calls & one staff member was threatened after players at Chesterfield FC were given Covid vaccines.

The club said some players and staff, "most of them vulnerable", were given jabs to stop them being wasted.

How convenient that so many of the Chesterfield players and staff were available at such short notice!

I bet the PR Company that the NL hired to try and get the Govt to change their mind on the Loans/grant saga won't mention this in their campaign.

Football Club and players just taking the p***.

And they want taxpayers money to prop up their Limited Companies!

Fake news, created by an ex-director and questionable journalism.

The director who played a big hand in our ungraceful fall from Div1 play offs to where we are now along with many alleged unscrupulous dealings. He got wind that CFC personnel had, had a lst minute call from a vacine centre and with malice aforethought contacted the press (mirror). Without investigation a story concocted to vilify footballers is great 'click bait' and along with the mail published a corrupt story.

The vacine centre published an excellent statement (I havent mastered the copy and paste facility on here ) explaining every avenue  they'd  explored to use unused vacine before approaching CFC. On reading this  the Mail to their credit produced another article this morning under the banner "Chesterfield are not the bad guys" (apologies can't copy etc)

It's unfortunate that the jealousy of a failed ex director, but more so absolute abysmal journalism caused an hard working employee to receive threatening phone calls ( by who one may ask).
To this end members of CFC forum (the equivalent of this ) decided to buy her some flowers and opened a just giving page, it wont be daffs, at the last look after 3 hours of running £1,750 had been raised. However its doubtful the press will focus on the good coming out of adversity.

If anyone is bored due to no pub visits you can glean all aspect of this farce on the CFC forum known as Bob's Board, (google Bob's Board CFC)   it might be wise not to focus on the thread concerning the car break down returning from tuesdays none match!!!

Cheers

Thanks for the update.

So, no queue jumping as far a CFC concerned, and CFC players and staff didn't get vaccinated ahead of other people (end of the day unused vaccine or not)?

Maybe someone at the club is involved in supply chain management, so know how these things work?
