Darlo odds

William Hills current odds offer Darlo at 25/1 to win league (joint 13th)

Stockport favourites at 6/1, York second favs at 13/2

Quarter odds 1,2,3

Roughly 8/1 to finish in top3 worth a shot - probably a bit optimistic for me, but would hope we are closer to playoffs than 13 or thereabouts

Re: Alarm bells ringing - Admission prices.

I suppose in the end it all boils down to basic economics. One thing we cannot do next season is lose money - there is no door marked 'owner' we can knock on to write a cheque to cover any shortage. If £12 is the price needed to ensure we break even or hopefully make a profit based on projected crow...

Re: My take on the ownership model

Many thanks for the explanation.

Re: (Echo) Three-year target for return to Football League

A bit optimistic I think - there is a fine balance to be achieved between positivity, keeping momentum going etc and unrealistic expectations which lead to disappointment and criticism down the line (as in 'Premiership in 5 years' or somehting similar). As Qz said there is also the issue of ground s...

My understanding is that the 100K buys the clubs assets and that includes the future monies for Dan Burn, Michael Smth and David Stockdale. The original 70K deposit that was paid by the Rescue Group may well be a part of the 100K as well, so if all goes well we only need 30K to keep the club tickin...

I thought HM has said in the past that he would only agree to a buy out if there was a viable plan to keep the business going - so that it didn't fall flat on its face in a few months. If that is so I can't see how he could agree to sell the club to 1883 today (at whatever price) if further funds wo...

Re: New Manager

If BSN was borderline full or part time then Evostick will definitely be part time - including the manager - would only be viable for someone with another job, in or out of football.
