Re: Season VOIDED

Whilst in a perfect world the season would be picked up from where it has been paused, the contractual situation of players, staff, insurance and sponsors, etc, make it impossible to continue beyond the regular end of the season. With so much of the season played, I would have preferred to see a PP...

Re: Coronavirus.

No way am I getting into a political argument about this virus. I simply meant that some things,(WW2 being the perfect example), should be above anyone trying to score party points. Just think, if this had happened pre brexit date and the election people like Corbyn could be causing all sorts of pr...

Re: Coronavirus.

This present Government may well be doing the best they can right now but ten years ago, before the cuts started there were a lot more police officers, nurses and public servants etc - all the people we are now going to rely heavily on. I always thought that cuts and savings should have been made e...

Re: Coronavirus and DFC

It'll be the last chance to see us for some time, although living near Boston I'm hoping I may have the chance on Tuesday. Divas is right in that what confronts us will be unprecedented and it will have big implications for next season too. I'm wondering if we'll need to do some fundraising going f...

Re: Last home game for a while?

Whilst it’s right to focus on the health issues, is it feasible that a significant number of fans would donate the price of an entrance ticket (or more) for each subsequent game should they be postponed / cancelled? Cash flow is crucial for the club

Re: David Johnston

Just a bit concerned that DJ has loaned £50k to the club at some time in the past. Has this been spent and on what? How many others have made loans and are any still outstanding? I appreciate he has turned his two loans into shares but is thus announcement something to be concerned about long-time? ...

Re: Liam Connell - Boost the Budget

Depends if you’re happy with 13th/14th place or not. We all want the club to finish as high as possible but we also have to be sensible with what we spend money on too. Elliott is not a bad keeper but Connell is better on what we have seen. However the deal has to be right for the club and we cant ...

Re: Hospitality price for K'minster game.

Unless I've misunderstood this it seems that season ticket holders and 500 club members miss out - which is isn't a good policy.

Well, if I’d ever said that the EU’s standards are better than its member countries, you’d have a point. But as the EU sets *minimum* standards to ensure harmonisation for ease of trade, how can they be better than those of its member countries? Think about it. These minimum standards allow those t...

It’s called the Supreme Court for a reason, it’s higher than the High Court - it’s the ultimate arbiter on interpretation of the law, it doesn’t make laws and it doesn’t make political decisions.

With regards to the Supreme Court, it's not a conspiracy theory to question something.

It's my belief that the courts should not have gotten involved in this as it's purely a po...
