Re: Merry Christmas Quakers

You will always get fans jumping onboard with what looks like the easy option of someone willing to take control and put money in. We have had our moments and no doubt will again where some do not like the fan funded model, and in fairness it has limitations but has less risk than one person who you...

Re: Brackley v Darlo

We have had all the initial funding we are getting. The next set of funding is largely loans with small amount being grants, however the National League haven't confirmed anything to the clubs as yet. So the clubs have no idea what they will be given or what they can loan. It's ok though as the Nati...

Re: Team v BPA

Surely the message about Reid has to get through to AA sooner or later...... What's the message? AA rates him as a squad player, for the money he is on probably not a bad shout. Whilst he wouldn't be first on the teamsheet I can understand with Holness and Hatfield injured why he was selected. Just...

No idea what we were trying to do tonight. O'Neill playing deep was bizarre and should have been canned not persisted with. Reid offers precisely nothing and our midfield had no energy again. Unfortunately this is now 4 identical home performances which is a worrying trend. Yep that was the one big...

Re: Tyrone O’Neill

What a crazy amount of quality up front though with Maguire, Campbell, Charman and O'Neill. Looks like Amantchi will have to make way, the lad needs to play and he isn't really going to get it here currently.

Campbell isn't leaving in any way, he just meant playing 4-3-3 you can only play one of Maguire, Charman or O'Neill. Campbell on the other hand can play in 4-3-3 or 4-4-2 etc. you could argue some of the others possibly could be the three he mentioned all largely play as the spearhead of a three or ...

Re: Fans before Christmas

Don't think a loan scheme massively helps many of the clubs, it may help cash flow and I don't think we would take any major risks these days. However loaning money for day to day spends isn't the best plan, if clubs need it then they will/should but it seems like this could be just kicking the prob...

Re: We are on the box

On the FA website is just says that: 'The FA live broadcast fee for these fixtures is £37,500 per club.' Would be a great bonus if thats the case. I think that's for the four games chosen to be broadcast on BBC or BT rather than the red button. Nope 8 games are chosen for £37.5k to each team. So we...

I thought i saw on the agenda that there was an item about use of surplus. Does that mean the club was in profit last year, or that the supporters' group was?
DFCSG were in profit. Club accounts for 2019/2020 not due for another couple of months.

Re: DFCSG AGM Tonight

Yep really good AGM, very positive view on where we are heading and putting the right things in place with a longer ambition of full time, own ground & football league.

Obviously none of that is easy to achieve and we need to be financially stable before moving forward.
