  1. Why, is he known to be anti-OAP? If he was then it would be sad as half of the East Stand would come into that category.
  2. Nick, hopefully when we get past the Playoffs and the dust settles there will be some movement on the method you and I now use to funnel money through the Supporters Club. If the best way to avoid paying VAT on money we give to the club is in the form of donations then we just need to channel this is in a structured way to try to engage with the supporters to generate a steady revenue stream, where we know all of the money we give goes to the club. Maybe with the new "virtual" world where nothing actually changes hands it will become simpler to achieve.
  3. I was thinking about what other ways it might be possible to help with the fundraising, in particular with my current employment status of being a director of a limited company, even if I am one of only 2 employees. One of the offers in return for a donation as part of "Project Playoffs" is for a Dining for 2 Match Day package @ £150. Now one of the perks open to me, or any other fans in the same boat, is to be able to offset up to £150 against Corporation Tax, for a company event such as a Works Xmas Do, for each employee and also for their spouses, in my current financial tax year. This would in effect make a £150 donation to HTFC in return for a "works do" only cost £121.50 in real terms. Where else can we get HMRC to offer to give £28.50 for nothing? What is even better, is that the £300 (me + spouse) can be split, so say Xmas party at £75 per attendee and Easter party at £75 per attendee. As the Project Playoffs does not stipulate when the Meal for 2 has to be taken or used by, it is possible for me to make 2 donations and hold these on account as long as the money leaves my company account before the end of the financial tax year. The only stipulation from HMRC is that the money has to be spent, and the £150 should include VAT, if applicable. So if the receipt for the donation comes to £150 and not a penny more, then I can claim the 19% tax allowance. Are there any other forum members out there who might consider this as a viable way to top up the Project Playoffs fund?

    Agreed, we should be looking to the future. What is clear, is that as football clubs go we seem to be one of the few who are not mired in debt and managing to keep our heads above water. It would be brilliant if the team can win the playoffs and get us back into the EFL, where we would have more to play with, but let's not kid ourselves once the sharks know we have extra in the pot the price for anything we want to buy will go up. The only saving grace here, is that as so many other EFL clubs are up **** creek without a paddle, they will be offloading players like billy ho, and somewhere in amongst all that mass of released players will be some diamonds in the rough, who might just be the next player who helps us further up the pyramid, or becomes another cash cow.
  5. Just going to order one for my younger brother who is a big Town fan, and it; his birthday later this month, but lives in Denver, so no chance of him getting on a plane soon....

    Let's hope we won that one then

    And Arsenal Ladies. In that respect you have to give credit where credit is due, they have spent £1.8 million on the playing surface, so it can be used all year round and 7 days a week if required. What we could do if we were able to get half of that to get the drainage at the Shay sorted out.

    Yes, they have a 4G Desso pitch, same as Huddersfield have. So it should be a good surface to play on.

    So on that basis, as all of the playoff bound sides lost, to opposition from a lower division, then we can basically infer that it was a training game for all involved.

    Friendly

    Yes, apart from Notts County losing 3-1 at home, BHW also lost 1-0 against Dartford at home.

    Maybe my crazy bets will come good then...
  14. Can you imagine the fracas if they brought Bury into the NL and teams such as Fylde had been relegated. I would imagine the Fylde Chairman would have a lot to say.

    The question is which one would you get now?
  16. On top of that if you turn up on the day of a game and want a ticket then they charge you £2 extra. So pay on the day at BHW is £20. Plus a £1 booking fee, so even if done in advance £19, not sure if that applies to buying on the day.
  17. From the BHW website it said 600 in normal times.
  18. I think they might have meant another 250 virtual tickets? If they can sell the rest of the cutouts then that would do it 236 x £25 = £5900
  19. We could do a virtual season ticket inc. cutout for our "distance challenged" supporters.
  20. Yes, but they would come under the Man Utd/FC United situation, 2 clubs/different (slightly) names in different steps of the pyramid.
  21. The cut outs must have gone beyond 50 by now as I have bought 1 (only 1, the rest has been blown on a harebrained betting scheme), since the 50 total was announced.

    In terms of that one game, whilst debatable, the outcome was in our favour. Not too sure what happened to Romark afterwards but safe to say he did not go on to become as famous as say Paul Daniels for example.

    Believe and it will happen. Am I starting to sound like that hypnotist who Town had in for the Man City cup game back in 1980, Romark.

    Shay Trev

    Well, hopefully we will have some football next week to discuss rather than Brexit/Covid bollocks, and it might tempt Trev out of "retirement".
  25. It is a tangled web. It would explain why Ridsdale was so keen to move Leeds United to a new site nearer the MI, the money they would have got for selling the Elland Road site would have financed it and cleared most of the clubs debts.
