Re: Sports village

No wonder the SV is not going ahead if the front page of today’s Echo is correct. DBC is reported to be facing an 8 million black hole in its finances due to Covid. No chance they will risk investing in a fanciful scheme like that proposed by DMP. We have a stark choice, either we try to develop BM...

Re: Increasingly unlikely playoffs

Still plenty of uncertainty according to the Price of Football podcast yesterday. They reckon the playoffs will be null and void if the NL cannot give the EFL certainties over the start of the 20/21 season. Basically said the EFL would refuse to accept the play off winner into their membership. Sen...

Re: Potential new signings

I see the Mackems have let 24 go. The majority of these are players aged under 24 so presumably haven't had much if any first team involvement. I've no idea who they are though I'm sure others will. From the number alone though you'd think there may be one or two that could perhaps do a job for us?...

Re: Increasingly unlikely playoffs

Not much discussion about the NLS clubs intentions. If they don’t produce four interested in playing, the whole deal is of including the north division!

Re: Increasingly unlikely playoffs

Would be a bonus if Boston Utd went up through the play-offs as it is like King's Lynn, a helluva way to go for an away game. Equally, Brackley would not be a great loss, although quite a few Darlo exiles in the South do make it to that fixture. Thought Chester were against play-offs due to the cos...

Re: Playoffs

I see York have just put in a counter suggestion (unsurprisingly) that those teams finishing 2nd in both NLN and NLS get promoted automatically, and the original intended 4 teams are relegated from the NL. Have to say I think they have a decent case. Is it the case again that the NL have more votes...

Re: New deal for,Donawa, Hatfield , Rivers, Holmes, Hedley,Reid, Storey, Campbell, Laing, Wheatley, Liddle

I think the dilemma for York is that they are already losing a load of money (£900k per year apparently) that McGill covers out of his own pocket. Well, until Bootham Crescent gets sold then he gets it back. Offsets Yorks losses against his packaging co profits saving a fortune in tax. Will he pay ...

19/20 Season Ticket Refunds

Has the club considered offering supporters a refund on the 19/20 season tickets?

We could then gift the club the money back saving the club 20% VAT. The danger is of course that not enough fans gift back the money to cover the refunds.

Just a thought.

Last season’s players we’re still waiting on: Laing, Storey, Galbraith, Watson, Liddle, Holness, Atkinson, Campbell, Reid, Wheatley. Could also include Lucas Bell, although he played very little part for the first team. If the bulk of those first 10 senior players sign, we probably only need two or...
