The things and opinions touted about Macca when he signed were quite negative and look how that ended up !! 

Exactly, Preston won't set the world on fire but he's a solid hard working player that will bring more to the squad than some of the 'players' that 'hopefully' we won't sign

From a Guiseley fan st work......Jordan plays when he wants and has a high opinion of himself. I spoke to Dayle on many occasions, very nice lad and articulate.  Works hard, makes intelligent runs and can finish. Too good for Northern league. May make it in the league again...Many levels above Fondop in my opinion. Gutted but knew he'd go.

We need to sign a few more to get the crowd figure up because at £20 a game we will have most fans following matches at home - or attending Hudds, Burnley, Bfd City, Leeds etc to save money. Average gate  last season 1,700, this season with fewer away fans 1,200 and 7,000 priced out of games. Winning football won’t get Hfx fans paying the leagues top prices. Sad but true. Diehards on this forum refuse to accept that fact. Most Hfx folk will pay £20 now and again but not every other week in winter. Enjoy the season it’s a one-off. The board will quit citing poor support and let’s hope there is a new money man ready to have a bash after10 years of fan neglect.

You'd rather pay less to watch rubbish ?

No, Hfx folk will not pay in sufficient numbers the admission fee. Fact. I wish they would. I will be proved right - we have always been poorly supported so when you make the admission fee extortionate compared to Premier Leagur prices the crowds will be low. People will pay £20 for one off games but not every game.

Hate it when people throw the whole premier league prices chestnut out on here.  These clubs can afford to charge these prices because they have the fans to be able to do it. They also recieve the TV money to be able to do it. We receive jack all so we have to cut our cloth accordingly.

The prices are high and it will affect gates but the on the gate price is only 2 pound more than it was last season and you don't see people rocking up with exactly 18 pound anyway so they would be able to afford the on the gate the same as last season in my view, 

You will have less taking up the season ticket offer because of this unless your a die hard and you know youll be at every game.  

You don't think the board will have budgeted for a loss at those prices I'd be surprised if they haven't realised they would be taking a hit by doing it 

But the alternative was to remain  part time and in my view that would have only been a matter of time before we got relegated. How many do you reckon would turn up to watch us when we are marooned in the conference north for ever more.  

It's the right decision and the right time for me

Works out reasonable on a season ticket . In all honesty, if we opened the gates for free we'd probably get similar numbers to what we already get 

Sad but true.

Think fans / supporters will pay 20 quid if the team is winning.

Halifax folk pay £22 to watch second rate Rugby at The Shay so do not be too negative. It could go wrong if we have a poor start but there is no way it can be as bad as last season which after a good start deteriorated with every game until Fullarton saved us from the drop.

Why would any Town supporter go and watch any of the teams you mentioned just because it costs £20 to watch the Shaymen. I've been a Town supporter for longer than I can remember but I wouldn't dream of watching Leeds etc just because our prices are high. Whats the point?......it wouldn't be enjoyable, I don't know many of their players and would you cheer if they scored?? When you have an allegiance and loyalty to a team its very hard to switch off.

People will always come and watch a winning team, it doesn’t really matter what our prices are. If we are making noise pushing for promotion then people will come down, if we’re in mid table with nothing to play for then crowds will drop. It’s the way it works at every football team up and down the country.

Southwell scored goals for fun at Boston and did pretty well at Guiseley considering the circumstances. Wouldn't write him off too soon. I must admit Preston isn't doing much for me

Think Preston is more the provider, the game changer, someone who can make something happen.

Don't want to write him off before I've even seen him play but literally, every Gateshead fan seems happy to see the back of him. Some even said he was their worst player all season

Tend to agree. See him playing behind and giving us more of an option as an attacking midfielder than an out and out striker.

Nice kid, has got bags of talent but a luxury player and can play well once then missing a few which is like a lot of non league I guess. Someday a brilliant but can be very frustrating 
Top kid tho

 Not a out and out striker wide of a 3 maybe Winger or in behind front 2

Great. At least Sammi looks half decent.

I hope he's bringing some decent defenders in.
