Re: Released players

When MG signed Scott Fenwick at the start of the 2017-8 season it seemed a little strange that he only left after 4 games. Did he clash with MG or something? Interesting to know if AA had a word with him this time but he chose Blyth instead, or if AA didn't even consider him.

Re: Notts Co. takeover - Darlo link

Reg Brealey may be 80 now but he was sniffing around Chesterfield a few months back and publicly declared that he wanted the buzz of running a football club again, albeit with a couple of people on board with him. Nottingham and Chesterfield are pretty close to each other geographically so it's not ...

Re: What is clear....

I'm not disappointed at all at wholesale reconstruction of a squad that finished just above the relegation spots and which was embarrassed by Guiseley. I was there that day and we were just dreadful. I'm sure Ainge will be off because he was just going through the motions that day and ignored TW and...

They've made numerous ultimatums in the past, but all of them get ignored. I guess they can be if people know that they'll just be bankrolled.

Re: Wheatley

Had a groin one 2 Years ago, but abdominal is less time.
He'll be up and walking straight away now.
2 weeks of gentle walking
After 2 weeks, light jogging.
4 weeks, gentle running
6 weeks - weights and back to gentle training.
Mid August before he'll be playing I reckon.

Re: Notes from the fans' forum

The FSIS says that the maximum grant percentage is 70%. Anyone know what this means? I'm guessing that it means they will finance up to 70% of any build cost? Up to 400k. It used to be called matched funding, ie if you put in 100k they put in 100k, therefore a 50% split - maybe that has changed? Do...

Re: Notes from the fans' forum

In 2 more years we can access more grants for the next level if we did get promotion, or an interim step, if we could sort out the primacy of tenure issue, is that we play at the Arena in the NL where 4g pitches are allowed, but DJ is not a fan. The next amount of funding is 400k, which may give us ...

Surely you know what Spen looks like. On his blog there's a great big picture of him on his bike in Lycra.
As for Ian, don't know what he looks like. Perhaps it's Spen's pet name for his bike.

For me, it was Divas who made the most telling point about all this. His point was that if you allow a 'benign benefactor', such as a Brad Groves, run your club, then the first owner you get you can 'vet' to a certain extent and vote on etc. However once you relinquish fan ownership then you lose co...

Re: Boost The Budget 19/20

That's the figures that DJ used. I don't know what our 'Core' fan base means either. It's entirely possible that he meant 30%, which would put the figure at 1,396, which would make more sense. That would be 558 fans for 40%. Either way, 500 fans is a big increase on 419. Figures going in the right d...

Not just that, but another 16 investors and we hit 503, which DJ had as a 'dream' target, that of 40% of the core fan base contributing.

And a further point on that score Fat cat. In TW's post match interview he said that himself and AW had a game plan specifically not to do this and that the players had ignored instructions by doing this. Speaks volumes really.

Re: Boost The Budget 19/20

It certainly looks as if some fans didn't contribute last year because they weren't convinced by TW as a manager, and maybe this year with AA they are convinced. David Johnston in an interview last May said that 419 contributors was 33% of the average fan base. He said that to go forward with the fa...
