    Doncaster racecourse just announced their test events with spectators present have been cancelled - doesn't bode well for any fans allowed on 3rd October, let alone 1000.

    Will the club be allowed pre-match hospitality as usual and how do the restrictions affect those who'd usually hire a box? Are those numbers part of the reduced capacity? Doesn't make much sense to insist on 450 fans in a stand designed for 3500, then to allow 10 or 20 people from different households in an executive box. But this is the council, sense probably doesn't come into it.
  4. I believe in the past clubs had a preference form to fill out before fixtures were arranged, where they could ask for home games on the first or last game or no preference. I think we've gone for no preference most times (which has sometimes left us with away games for both).
  5. Maybe it's not really that much of an issue in the grand scheme of things if a handful of people cross the channel in the hope of a better life. Maybe we're not actually 'swamped' or 'overflowing'. Maybe if we genuinely don't have the facilities to cope with people who'd risk their lives to try and claim asylum here, after it being an 'issue' that's been ongoing for many years, the problem is more to do with us than those travelling here. Maybe it's only started hitting the headlines again recently as a way of taking attention away from some bigger issues.
  6. Can't see us getting any fee for Brown, teams with money are almost all going to be full time. If Brown could do full time football he wouldn't be leaving us. Realistically the best we can hope might be a swap deal, if he joins a Conference North or Northern Premier side they might have a promising player we can use Brown as a makeweight in a deal for.
  7. Difficult one because based on the last few games they've all been a bit rubbish, despite Fullerton's comments that we dominated on Saturday. Presuming Macca is leaving and Garner & Hibbs are under contract then: Keep Johnson, Wilde, Brown, Garner, Collins, Hotte, Kosylo, Hibbs and McDonald (if rumours of serious injury are unfounded) Invite back Riley, Tomlinson, Duckworth & Moyo Release Nicholson, Denton, Oliver, Clarke, Barrows, Khan, Basic Of the loanees, I'd try to sign Mad Mike and Maher, rest haven't looked up to it. As tempting as it i
  8. After the Tranmere away game Heath said we were going to go back to being hard to beat. Possibly not playing the best players but playing people who would work hard and do the thankless jobs like closing down and breaking up play. Nothing wrong with the idea but in practice it's been a spectacular disaster. Up to and including the Tranmere game we'd played 18 league matches, scored 19 (1.06 per game ratio) and conceded 21 (1.16 per game) to get 24 points (1.33 per game). Since his efforts to be hard to beat we've played another 13 league matches, scored 13 (1 per game) and conceded 22 (

    What you get up to in the privacy of your own home is no one’s business but your own.
  10. Bizarre team selections in recent games, even more bizarre substitutions made (or just no subs made) at times. Results are appalling. All adds up to only one thing. Time for change, we can’t let it get to the point where we drop into the bottom 4 as it might be too late by then. You did amazingly last season Billy, but it’s a ruthless business and sadly it’s gone too far now.
  11. I wasn't at the game on Saturday, but from the team sheet I was under the impression that we played a 4-5-1 with Macdonald on the right and Tomlinson on the left. In that case I can understand why Tomlinson started and why Clarke came on for him - Morgan is a lot of things, but he's not a wide player. Wilde's injury meant Macca moved back to full back and left a gap on the left - Kosy is still out injured so we're not blessed with options there.
  12. I can't say I know what Neil Young has been doing, but I doubt very much he'd get the scouting job then sit at home each evening watching Corrie because he's been working his day job during the day. Not sure how long he's been employed by us but just maybe the players he's recommended have been turned down by Heath as not what he wants right now, maybe we want them but their club are refusing to sell or loan them out at the moment. Maybe Heath trusts his players and the team spirit so is reluctant to bring new people in for a month and risk upsetting that. For what it's worth I agree
  13. Superb displays from Brown & Hotte tonight, looked immense in the centre of defence. Didn't quite click at the other end though, although I did love the little nasty battle between Kosy and Roberts. Not sure what started it but it escalated from verbals and both could easily have been sent off on another day - the fact the ref allowed them both to do almost anything unpunished just added to the fun. Only Heath spoilt it by sending Kosy to the right instead. Wasn't much quality on show from either side, but after a slow first 45 the second half was end to end. Just hope Macca is
