  1. For me, the main benefit for a story to circulate that we vastly over paid wages on a player, and that cash was being frittered, and quoted to be be giving a "present" would be to make the person that was throwing the money look like he had plenty. For it to transpire numerous time that he hasn't got the money he implied would be Michael Knighton esque.....

    Notts County (a)

    i was thinking of the zero significant local (well surrounding) population!
  3. I guess Accrington are proving to be the exception to spending 10's millions. They are very transparent with their finances too. http://priceoffootball.com/accrington-stanley-the-milkman-of-human-kindness/

    I think their relative remoteness might stick that. Their best season ever only managed an average attendance of 16,500. Incredible performances though.

    FA Youth Cup

    Apologies, I see what you mean. Nicely done.
  6. FIFY. I do agree with the thrust of your point. The trouble for us is that we wrote off a load of debt, but added even more than before afterwards.

    FA Youth Cup

    As in the real FA cup, there are preliminary rounds, so too tricky to find out, think I'l give that one a miss, thanks all the same! To be honest, over that time scale there may be a variety of reasons teams may not enter for a season or more.

    Quickest off topic ever....! 🤣
  9. 1st Round 2018 I always think we get tough draws. Anyway 1st rd this year Tadcaster or Altricham. Away. Quite a few Non league teams in there still, so we missed an easier draw. I'd have liked Cogenhoe United or Aylestone Park.....!

  10. You inspired me to post Andy, and I support what you say. The only thing I do not agree with is ShareShare and buying shares. Having the shares and the seat on the Board has not bought any tangible benefit, or any Early Warning System. But 100% yes on a war chest and/or to purchase the ground at least.
  11. Adding to your fact check, Lee Bradbury was the manager when he bought the club, and only sacked 4 months later. They were 17th at the time, though had been a very poor start haing lost 6 out of 7 I think.
  12. I've cancelled my Direct Debit for trust membership (it was only £1 per month , but had been going since 2006 IIRC) because I am very frustrated and the seat on the Board has had no tangible benefit. But, if a Groundshare is created, to create a fund to own the ground, and/or take over running if Lemsagem disappears then I will re-start and actually put more per month in than I did. It is something I have posted a number of times on here about.
  13. I think in reality that £3m over 5 years just keeps us standing still or ust into L1
  14. The rate he is going, he will have burned through all his cash pretty soon.
  15. WTF. Mind you, I think we need money to come with anoyn who joins our Board rather than a sop to the fans, albeit a straight talking one.
