I’m guessing reduction on last year ?
Yes. And understandably so given the last 12 months for some.

Re: Boost the budget 2021

Good to see it's got off to such a good start. It wonder how it compares like for like with last year - not in terms of time, but in terms of people. Is it the the same people putting in the same (or even reduced) amount, just perhaps earlier in the cycle? Or are new people joining, or are people u...

Mission Impossible - Mission Accomplished!

“At its peak Mission Impossible was selling between 800 and 1,000 copies on average gates of 2,500, which was a phenomenal take-up rate…” For those of a certain age, Mission Impossible was as integral to 90s-era Darlo as Feethams, Hodgy and Dugald McCarrison’s loan spell.

Re: The Farsley game a year ago.

A few of us sponsored that game and, had it not been for that reason, I don't know if I would have gone.

Anyway, I did and it was a genuinely bonkers game. We hammered them and lost 2-4.

Classic Darlo.

Don't worry - there are definitely plans afoot for keeping the Virtual 50/50 going between now and the start of next season.

It is 'brand new' ideas that we're hoping to encourage.

The beauty of this club is that that fans get to choose. Hoops (or a variant of) or not (something else x3). Newcastle United (a) don't ever deviate from b&w stripes and (b) don't even consult the fans on it. You are asked, every season in recent years, "which of these eight kits do you want two of ...

Fair comment Robbie I agree with the majority of what you say except the bit about providing a hooped option. Option 1 is a long way from the traditional hooped shirt that I would expect to see. It looks like I have sewn it together and made an absolute mess of it. For once I have to agree with Gra...
