Re: More signings pls xoxo

Insane numbers that we can’t compete with running a prudent and sensible financial model.

I reckon Maguire would have loved to come and play under Armstrong again and with players he’s played with previously, but I personally wouldn’t turn down that offer, got to look after yourself financially.

Re: RIP OFF

Best thing to do if you feel you’re being ripped off and seen as a cash cow is not too go. We don’t make any money from taking big away followings, as long as people are going to home games and contributing financially to the club that’s the most important thing. We always take good followings, whic...

Re: The Board

Let’s hope that the next time we have a sticky patch the knuckles heads that hardly turn up except when they can hurl abuse at someone can act like adults, as we are lucky to have the people with the experience and expertise that we do.

Re: Boost The Budget 19/20

Upto 40k, we’re 50% there after less than a week.

Hopefully get upto 50/60k and then when new manager is appointed in the next few weeks we’ll smash the target.

Yeah I imagine so.

Which is each individuals perogative.

Ironic as well how the success of boost the budget could likely determine the standard of manager we are able to appoint as well. Let’s hope too many people don’t hold off until an appointment is made.

Re: Alun Armstrong on his way out of Blyth?

The standard of manager we are able to attract will likely depend on the level of budget we can offer. At this moment in time a lot of people have held off buying season tickets due to having no confidence in the current management, which is fine and an individual choice, but it will likely have a d...

Armstrong sounds exactly like our previous manager.

There seems to be a lot of younger 'ambitious' managers that loathe it when clubs...
