Re: Spennymoor Away

For what it's worth I was within earshot of the guy organising the stewards at the bottom end of the ground well before kick off and he was telling them that only disabled and those who would not be able to stand were allowed to sit in the limited seating at that end of the ground. Red and white ta...

Re: Spennymoor Away

There was some terrace standing space available near the seated stand end of the ground. Awkward single file step access though from near the TV gantry. About 15 minutes before kickoff, stewards walked down this section offering supporters seats in the - under-populated - section of the adjacent sta...

Re: King’s Lynn

Agree that the ticketing arrangements were very odd and poorly advertised. Asked for an away ticket but stood at the covered (home) side of the ground. No issues. Surprised no one has mentioned the Beckham style attempt to lob the keeper from the halfway line. Came back off the bar but would have be...

Re: Bartlett

Has left York City and has taken up a full time job "in the North East" with a sports clothing company. Apparently wants part time football but not the travelling involved in Nat.League North. Heading for Northern League it seems.

Re: Trophy game on Friday

Wonder if this is a missed opportunity? Apparently (and unusually) Newcastle, Middlesbrough and Sunderland all away that weekend. Maybe we would have got a bigger crowd on the Sunday if Saturday was impossible?
Also better for fans who travel long distances.

Re: York City

I wonder if this is the start of Gateshead being pulled apart. The owners want out and say they have been talking to some interested parties but there's no news yet. Meanwhile virtually all the squad are now free agents and the manager is out of contract. If there isn't a deal to buy them soon you ...

Know a bit about this. Jason and the McGill family have been loyal York City fans for decades. They have put their heart, soul and money into the Club. They do not deserve to be compared to transient investors in other clubs. Jason's company could only invest in the football club if they were confid...

I can see with today's postponement the club could have more cash flow problems. Seems sensible to get 500 club members to help out. Perhaps offer a rolling extension to the deal at £25 per month? I appreciate that it would take some organisational effort but once set up it could guarantee a steady ...

Re: Other Alternatives

If the new owners of the Arena are flexible, is there any mileage in seeing whether they would lease the 6000+ capacity east stand to the football club? Would solve most of the infrastructure issues and must be cheaper and quicker than some of the plans being debated on here. Each code would have th...

Re: People Leaving at HT

Thought it generally went well although the unlit toilets were inadequate so some "portaloos" may be needed. No congestion at the turnstiles was an unexpected plus. If there was a refreshment van then I didn't see it although the guys walking round selling pies from a tray had the right idea. If the...

Why were Salford fans expecting a penalty when as you just said where you stood it was outside the box?

Music

I don't go to Heritage Park to listen to the pre/half time/post match music.

...but Saturday's selection was particularly dismal. (Tinkerbell and Gregorian chanters?)

Take a leaf out of the Premier division clubs and have something vaguely upbeat and inspirational?

Only my opinion.
