    The problem that I see is that if somehow they can get rid of Dale and service the debt to avoid being kicked out, then what? They are pretty much snookered for the rest of this season and would be making a return to L2 next season at best, with no players or money. They need someone to not only buy off the current shyster, but then settle the current debts and have money left to run the club... And a few hours. It looks like they are dead in the water.
  2. Ive a lot of time for Matty. A proper no nonsense sort of guy. Got to respect that.
  3. I feared the worst for Maher when news came out he was waiting for a scan. Its got all the hallmarks of Tomlinson last year - both players started the season in superb form, before getting what looked (at the time) to be a minor knock. Lets hope that this season Maher's return is a lot sooner, the problem gets cleared up straight away and he can slot back into the side. I feel we have missed him in the last two games.

    The traditional newspaper itself is dying on its arse. I know we send back more than we sell every single week. I believe we get sent a shipment of around 500 papers to be sold each week and our actual sales are around 80-100. That to me speaks volumes about how little people want the hard copy of the paper, when you consider that its the equivalent of selling 15 a day tops.

    Those figures look about right. I can't recall where I saw it, and it was a couple of years ago, however I believe we were paying around £4500 a month for the ground. On top of that, we then take on the costs of the stewards, the doctors, any policing needed, plus our share of gas/electric/water etc.... Again, its going back a few years, however I believe that before we take into account any of the costs of stewards/doctors etc, it costs roughly £2000 a game to stage a game - which is one of the reasons why we shunt our WRCC game to different grounds. What does need to be weighed in is that we make no money on things like food or drink and unlike other clubs, can't rent out the pitch/ground on non match day to recoup money (Quite a few clubs with the plastic desi pitches make quite a bit of money by having games or events pretty much non stop) I have no idea how the running costs of the ground are so high, considering what looks like minimal investment in the pitch, considering the Council pretty much takes a cut or all the money from everything else. They have both ourselves and the Rugby club playing there, have a monopoly on the food and drink sold there, have the car parking for all 7 days, have all the function rooms for the non match days that they can hire out (Which they do quite a bit), have the five a side courts, plus deals with the likes of HBOS for using it for fire drills and first aid etc...

    The last manager simply refused to communicate, not just with the fans and media, but with other people within the club. Our own media team couldn't get an interview off him or the players ffs - and were continually kept in the dark. I've not hidden the fact that I am not a huge fan of the Courier, as I often find their content to be full of errors, or simply not probing enough (like their praising of Tony Abbott and simple refusing to question his motives/business for example), however I can't in all fairness hold them responsible for the lack of content in the last two years. So far this season we seem to be heading back into a good communication circle and whilst not my favourites, I do welcome the Courier to try a bit more.
  7. Easiest way around this is to upload your photo to imgur. Its a free website and they will host it for you so all you have to do is post the link in the box. https://imgur.com No need for an account, just upload the photo to that (by clicking the green "new post" button in the top corner", click on "choose photo/video" and it will take you to your pics, upload the pic you want, hover over the pic until the three ... appear, click on "get share links" and then click on the "BBCode (Forums) option to copy the link. Then just post the link in your post, including the IMG tags. Pic will show and the 2MB limit won't be a problem

    Id agree with that tbf. Young/McCelland and to a degree Jemson could be excluded from the rankings due to lack of time in charge, although the latter was scheming and plotting for the best part of half a season. Only Aspin and Heath I would view as having successful spells, which is concerning overall sadly.
  9. Horrible club are Boreham. I wonder if they still try to charge away sides media teams to enter the ground and record? I dont care if they go under. Funded beyond their means, no history and bring nothing to the table.

    Is this when Barnsey travels with him that this happens?

    Death Metal is OKish in parts, however a lot of it is deliberately OTT which isn't to my taste. Pirate Metal is much more fun (Go google Alestrom for an example of OTT metal thats good to listen to). Gangster rap is crap, agreed. I don't mind a bit of rap tbf, however the posturing gangster stuff is naff.

    Aspin got sacked after a poor run of results. Harsh but that is the nature of the business. His past success for us counted for probably getting an extra couple of games, however at the end of the day his axing, on performance alone, in this industry, was probably justified. Would he have kept us up if given the entire season? Who knows, probably not. However, Kelly was next level bad. Not only were we losing, but we were getting our pants pulled down and humiliated at the same time. It was horrific to watch and made worse with him coming out of talks about breaking into the playoffs. Of course it was everyone's fault but his own that he got sacked according to himself. Not putting anything solely at Kelly's door, however whatever way you wish to look at his reign, he was a complete and utter disaster, always out of his depth - and if we had not had him in for those ten games it would be logical to assume we could have sneaked an extra point or two at the very least to have remained safe.

    Granted this grime thing isn't my genre of music, however I have to agree. I can normally see some artistic merit in music I don't like, however the grime scene simply goes over my head, it all sounds dreadful (And if you have a spare hour to kill on Youtube, go down the Blackpool Grime Media rabbit hole to see a bunch of kids acting like "gangsters" rapping about rape and all sorts of horrific **** to see how truly daft the whole thing is). A few of my friends were losing it over someone called Dappy playing last week (apparently he pulled out last min) - first time I felt like one of those "grumpy old men" when saying I hadn't a clue who the hell he was, couldn't name you any of his work, or think of anything worse than having to listen to him

    Harvey gave us arguably one of our best days ever, however I don't feel he was as good as others make his legacy to be. With 6 games, 3 games, 1 game and 45 mins to go we were safe. He did wonders to get us back out of the mess Deluded Daz put us in, however from the position he got us in, we shouldn't have fallen back down. I think he was probably out of the game a tad too long to be a realistic appointment, as football is a fast moving industry and his style was almost old school compared to the up and comings. He had also lost the dressing room which went against him. Either way, we can't say not extending his contract and getting Heath in was a mistake - as he brought us straight back up. (The one part of Heath's reign that is worthy of criticism is his dismantling of our scouting network however - that was simply inexcusable and he shouldn't have been allowed to do it and our BoD's should have stopped him)

    I don't get the Heath hate. He was given two years to get us promoted, he did it in one. He didn't have the greatest set of contacts, however he got 100% out of all his players, whom respected him and would run through brick walls for him. He never once said anything negative about the fans, the club, the ground, the set up, the training facilities... His sacking probably was right on a results front when it came, however I have nothing but the upmost respect for him and would have him behind Aspin as the best FCHT manager since reformation.
