Re: Sold out?

This really is a non story it’s not like it’s the Champions League Final. It’s all probably a wind up anyway and at the end of the day it’s on the TV. Great to see a full house, if we win I doubt there will be any complaints, lose badly I can here the criticisms of sight lines already, oh to back at...

Re: Osagi Bascome and Justin Donawa

I think I saw a £100k figure on here brought in through the cup run so more than enough for Alan to strengthen the team I would have thought.

Re: Be sure to get a ticket

I’m in hospitality which is totally full I’ve been told, that’s the first time this season. TBH when it’s that full it’s oftern difficult to see from the balcony. However who cares for this game as atmosphere should be cracking.

Is the gate money split for the replay?
If not it could be a tidy sum with the TV money.

Re: Big day Mon 11th November - Possibly 4 things

Rob, it’s a shame there aren’t any woman on the the board which in today’s society is not good. Is that due to no females have applied?

Re: Walsall V Darlington FA Cup First Round Proper

It will certainly make a huge dent in the debt and outstanding loans. Plus if we win reply it could be another bumper pay day which will be superb for the club finances finally putting us on an even keel.

The count down 4 days to go 👍 Still time to do a deal on Liam Connell, & he did not play for South Shields in previous FA cup games so not cuptied👍 Be great if we could get Connell but I’ve heard it’s unlikely. I’m sure AA is doing all he can to get the strongest team out, win this and it will make...

Re: FA Cup draw - Darlo Away to Walsall

A big away crowd is always a cracking atmosphere, especially when the home crowd aren't arsed and are easily drowned out. We're not capable of a big home crowd. Our...

Re: Tamworth V Darlington Match Thread

If we get a big home game then the Arena should be considered if possible. I’m talking Sunderland or Hartlepool level. Not possible It is possible, you can’t move purely for financial reasons but your can for safety reasons. With a large following from say a Sunderland, Ipswich etc I believe you ha...

I didn’t mention anything about Craig, personally I think he’s doing a great job you only have to look around the ground in terms of advertising and as a user of hospitality it’s really improved and I wish more would use it.

Re: Fans forum needed

If we're financially stable then a reputable company like Clive Owen who already run the payroll might be the best way forward and using their knowledge might save us some money along the way. I'm personally more interested in Craig Morley's input and looking forward to seeing if he's brought in mo...

Well if not a fans forum then perhaps a podcast to update us on finances, board replacements for John Woolnough and any update on Arena/ Blackwell it’s a while since we had one.

With John Woolnough gone I’ve heard the accounts are looking to be outsourced from Clive Owen who do the current pay role if this is true then it’s worrying as the DFCSG promised a tight hold of all finances as a fan owned club.
