Re: Interview with Johnston on Official Website

My understanding is that if the SV goes ahead, land has already been agreed for us to build on, but clearly that would take years for us to get the money to get it built up, so decision would be which site can we negotiate the best financial return over the intervening period. BM has issues if we d...

Re: Interview with Johnston on Official Website

Positive words from DJ but TBH nothing new we don’t seem to be able to move forward with SV and talk of our own 4g pitches and new stand weren’t mentioned. DRFC likely just happy with the stalemate license ends in 15 years. If we want to follow Walsall then we need to be looking to secure outside in...

Re: Simply not good enough

It does feel like a big improvement on last season, but saying that, if we do finish bottom half then it probably isn't. 100k extra added to the bank from a cup run suggests even if we finish midtable it's a massive step forward. Agree with most comments, it's disappointing currently and it was sli...

Surely there must be some cash out of the £100k cup run to strengthen the team. Anyone?

Re: Woolnough

Out for a few beers tonight and apparently he let the Bermudan players stay in his house which would have saved the club a fair bit of money. He helped the club also with a loan which he obviously wants back, with a £100k windfall I can’t see the problem in paying him back.

Re: Threat to Ossett United & football itself

I heard about this on radio 4 yesterday they interviewed the Osset chairman who was livid then the solicitor who sounded like he was out to make a quick fee.

Re: Will Darlo go for the hybrid model?

Chatting to someone on Wednesday who’s knows, the £100k windfall will quickly disappear after paying of people who have loaned the club money he reckons they will likely make £20-£30k but should then be debt free which is a good thing. All the creditors know we have made money so they will no doubt ...

It’s up to theClub to pay for competent stewards for a game like this they should have maximised provision bearing in mind the money we have accumulated. .

Re: Gates

The DFCSG need to crack on with a decision as they/we are the owners. If the plan is to get back to the league then the Arena is a sensible option as BM will take to much money to develop it to FL standard plus we only have 15 years left there on the license. If the ambition isn’t there then BM will...

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.

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.
