Its not a joke

I looked at the odds yesterday. We are only a measly 20/1 with Spennymoor 16/1

I take it that's to get promoted? If that's the case, then it's ridiculous to only offer those odds for us, I think 16/1 for Spennymoor is fair and probably reflects how many games they have to squeeze in till the end of the season.

Is there a likelihood that any playoff contenders could not reach stadium specs this year???

Poetic justice if we sneaked in by that route.
Mr Singh said this " I'm not expecting to get back any of the money I've already put in, I'm prepared to write it off for the future of the club. I'm not hanging in to make any kind of financial gain in the short or long term - if someone was prepared to come in and take the club off my hands, I'd be more than willing to discuss it"

Only Spenny if stuff isn't ready by March 31st. As for the others, all have 500 seats and 3,000 capacities.
I assume Spenny's ground improvements are on track. They have until a week on Saturday. You would have thought that the pictures would be all over twitter though. Just had a look on their website and they said that the covered stand would be out of use for the next several weeks while they 'Try' to get the ground ready for March 31st. Interesting choice of language.

What about York's new ground? I assume that won't be ready next week. Does Bootham Crescent still count even if McGill has sold it?

its a long shot, but we need to get as many points as we can and finish as high as we can, who knows what will happen in the coming weeks.

This, if we keep performing as we are and others by some miracle slip up... Who knows?!
