  1. It appears that it is only for purchases made in the shop on production of your supporters card.
  2. So a good cup run would be beneficial, if we had some luck, as this one of the easiest ways to generate good revenue across the second half of the season.
  3. He was probably one of those old dinosaur types. They strutted around the pitch like Captain Mainwaring delivering lectures to players. It took years for football referees to catch up with the way other sports used man management to control games and realise that the game was about the players and not them.
  4. Either way, just for turning up in both the FA Cup and the Trophy, the club get £4,375, even if we lose both games. Win them and we get £11,825. Should be achievable. The Trophy provides money for both winners and losers in each round right up to and including the Final. The FA Cup is winners prize money after the qualifying rounds. A good FA Cup run to the 3rd round would bring in £66,004 plus half the gate money as well. For the cups it is shared equally between home and away teams. So a tie at Bradford City in the 2nd round of the FA Cup would do very nicely thank you.

    reminds me of the trips to Wembley each year for the Rugby organised by the Talbot Illingworth. Every year there were a few lads who never got to the game, as they were still kaylied from the Friday night spent around the West End.

    Well if this Brexit thing ever happens then the booze cruise option might be back on the table.....
  7. So how many forum members, would be up for this type of subscription via the Supporters Club?
  8. I have read in a Daily Mail article that Irving Weaver funded the 500,000 needed for the 3G pitch nd the ground improvements, so he will now have to fork out for grass pitch.What this will do to the "community" use of the playing facilities at their ground will have to be rethought. I have seen reports that they are possibly going into some for of partnership likely to fund an expansion of facilities at St John Fisher HS, but as always there will be a quid pro quo, Fisher's has extensive grounds attached to the school some of which would make very desirable residential building land.
  9. I agree, as this is the point I have made in the past about allowing PW time to build his own team in his way. It does help though if you have a special relationship with your chairman....
  10. And will their best player, Diamond, be in the ranks, or back with Sunderland? Based on what he has shown while on loan they will either want him back to do a job for them or look to cash in while he is "hot property"
  11. As his father bankrolls the club is it not a bit difficult to "release" the manager?
  12. Yes, they will be sending them out wanting them back better, fitter players than when they left, after all a loan is not a "holiday".
  13. All the more reason for our own fans to continue to support the club in whatever way they can. After all we don't want to go back to the bad old days, when we are at last beginning to look like one of the more stable clubs in the league. Which is more important, to have a club that risks everything in the hope we can get to the EFL but might go bust in the effort or aftermath, or a club that is managed in a way that we can achieve promotion but in a sustainable way that would keep professional football being played at the Shay for another 100 years?

    Chesterfield, no wonder they are in a mess. The company secretary posts on their website and it never makes for good reading. https://www.derbyshiretimes.co.uk/sport/football/all-we-have-wanted-club-be-passed-fans-dave-allen-pay-ex-directors-full-so-chesterfield-fc-takeover-can-be-completed-2926344

    Hear Hear....
  17. I think that might play into their hands. They clearly do not need the money and they have shown they are far more adept at playing behind closed doors than we have.

    Callaghan was Scottish
  19. On the other hand it might guarantee that you get in....if you have already pre-paid for the game then it stands to reason that you should be classed as a priority customer and go to the front of the queue.
  20. Yes, why not just say if you are a football fan and cannot get into the ground at your favourite team then come and watch us. We are doing a one of offer.....with no limits? I can't see anywhere what it costs if you are the 21st punter?
  21. Tommy I agree, it's time the league and the match officials got a grip....
  22. Maybe we should repeat the offer we had for other clubs to get in for £10. I had a lady from Sowerby Bridge who was a Huddersfield Town S/T holder sat in the same row as me for the Ebbsfleet game. To my surprise she said she had enjoyed the game, the friendliness of everyone and she would give it another go if they repeated the offer. I wonder how many we did get extra for that game?

    NCN playoffs

    If that's the case then everyone should be getting theirs now.....
  24. Not my fault. They used to get offered spare season tickets when some school friends they had could not go to any of the games. I fortunately, did not have to take them
