Re: SEASON POSTPONED?

Some valid points particularly about pubs: -Im really sick of hearing “we can sit in a packed pub but not go to football”. What packed pubs? Hardly as if a pub will have anywhere near the amount in of even a northern league Game. Have these idiots spouting this s*** been to a pub lately? -i think th...

Re: Macclesfield Town

Really sad and terrible timing as I assume they're now too late to compete at any level this season as a phoenix club. I really wish the FA would try and be understanding regarding phoenix clubs. It's bad enough clubs going pop, but it is a reality. This is Bury all over again, who had to sit out a...

Re: Macclesfield Town

£340k of the debt was owed to two individuals a lender and their ex-manager (John Askey) and then a further £190k to HMRC. I thought Sol Campbell also say he didn't ever get paid his salary from them - that doesn't appear to be true based on report. You wonder what the situation was with Askey base...

Re: Macclesfield Town

Cant believe a ex manager is owed Nearly as much as the tax man. Was he on premier league wages or summat. Enjoyed my visit there when they won the national league. Is 500k really alot for a club to go under these days even in the national league

Re: Ground share

From what i gather the rules out today on crowd restrictions are just for step 3 and below which would be ok for the bulk of clubs at that level but not for step 2 and above, lets hope common sense prevails for above step 3

According to the Echo, DMP RUFC have a salary budget of £350,000 & also need funds to maintain and repair the Arena.
Surely the arena needs a overhaul i.e steel work painted and that to get a safety certificate, would be costly i can imagine

Re: Playoffs

With TV money and the backing of Mr Weaver I am sure they will be fine. Crowds may not exceed 2000 if fans are allowed but look at Accrington. Harrogate are going to share with Donny Rovers, 45 miles away, until the plaggy pitch is replaced, so gates of 2000 might be a tad optimistic. According to ...

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: Increasingly unlikely playoffs

At this level I think a lot of players are on 52 week contracts ( even part time players) but this varies by club. How many is a lot. I suspect the vast majority are on 40 weeks contracts (which is why at this level you do see many players announced in May / June time). Rather than 1st July which i...

Re: Darlington Formed 2012

No, your opinions are not facts. One thing I DO agree with you, is yes, we may as well have been liquidated like Halifax, Chester, Hereford, for all the good that remaining the same club did us. The reason that the FA didn't give us a heavy points deduction like they did with Bournemouth, Leeds and...
