Re: Guiseley match thread

My decision making not good either, being a Redcar races member, I could have gone and joined my mates there, or joined some other of my mates and gone to watch York knights play and had a few beers with them, but no, as always pick to go to the mighty Darlo, (wish I knew which team was going to tu...

Re: TW - Learning His Trade

More generally I think as a club we're a little lost. In the first 5 years it was all project promotion and getting back to darlo. Now both have been achieved, who are we? What do we want next? This isn't helped by the ongoing BM v Sporting village saga which makes it difficult for the club to lay ...

Re: Adam Bartlett

Bartlett is a part time coach at NUFC so I wonder how full time he is at York? If he leaves we should at least see what the score is. Word was when he signed that MG let him train part time but he was on a full time wage. I’d be surprised to see him pick up another full time deal - I’m not sure he ...

Re: Sporting Village

divas - surely they're financially contracted to the stadium though, and financially liable for problems with it, and tied to consequences if they fail to pay up. They must be running to a significant loss. Presumably they can't just up sticks and walk away... so i'll stick by that projection. That...

Re: Sporting Village

Given DMP is a separate entity to the stadium at the moment and will also been once the SV concept is complete I doubt it’ll take them out. Of course if it all goes to s*** they could have nowhere to play (sound familiar?) I actually think the plans have the potential to make the arena viable from a...

Re: Sporting Village

To be fair, if the s*** hit the fan and the council ended up owning the stadium, then equally we could make an offer to play there, or both us and Mowden could - without the worry of Mowden needing fixture preference. So long as they hadn't installed a placcy pitch or if placcy pitches were by then...

Initial £800k loaned from Raj in 2106, re-financed last year with a £1.5m loan which has again been refinanced this year with a £2.02m loan. All 3 secured against the Arena and the last two both guaranteed by the council (once the SV had been agreed). Suggests that the holding company for the Arena ...

Re: FANS NETCAFE -this Friday evening.

Why does a contract need to have a fixed end date? Because if not, then like you can at work, a player could give notice and leave a club at will and without club getting compensation. Your work don't get compensation if you join another company. The fixed term contracts in football ensure clubs ca...

Crazy statement. A team that can play nice football in short spells is not a good team. A good team is a team that can grind out points on a regular basis regardless. There is so many basic fundamental issues and he thinks we’re only not far away. If I was one of the board listening to that and a de...

We have been very good and it's astonishing that they have a lead after we have been so dominant.
No surprise given we have no cutting edge. Same in the second half on Wednesday, it counts for nothing if you don’t have someone who can fashion a chance and finish it

disgusted at the 140k that DRFC gain from us on top of rent. 20% of boards advertising really no wonder we are in a mess financially. that money wouuld do wonders for our club and give us stability
£140k is revenue not profit, £100K of that revenue will have some serious costs associated to it
