...what will happen with the relegation spot? Will Harrow Borough survive anyhow?<p>And, to make my point clearly: This is only because I'm wondering about this, not that I hope that will happen, I sinecrely hope ythat everything turns out all right for all St. Albans supporters, and their club will survive.<p>But I don't know how the rules are in England about this, don't know anything about the norwegian rules either...<p>Just wondering?

My guess is that Harrow would stay up. I believe there are precedents for this (although I can't remember what they are!)

Sounds like as good a reason as any for St. Albans to get themselves sorted out - Harrow to get relegated! C'mon u saints images/icons/wink.gif" border="0

Thanks for your kind support Simon and BTFC Norway. We need all the help we can get at the moment. It is not easy when you have a chairman, or ex-chairman I should say, like ours hell bent on extinguishing our flame forever.<p>

How confident are you that St. Albans will finish the season? Keep seeing headlines along the lines of "New Consortium interested in Saints" but then nothing. What is the likelihood of a fans takeover? (And the biggie) am I right in thinking that if you havn't found a new backer by the next court hearing (feb 20th?) then you fold? <img src="graemlins/images/icons/confused.gif" border="0" alt="confused" />

One would think Saints would be able to come up with a decent financial backer, South Herts is one of the most affluent districts in the UK. But then maybe the business people there are toffs who would rather back the local girls school rowing team. Just a thought.

Yes unfortunately a non-league football club with little in the way of assets and revenue that doesn't cover its costs is not seen as an attractive business proposition by the get-rich-quick brigade that now lives in this area. <p>As for the relegation issue, one option is surely to keep things as they are and simply play one less in the Premier next season? Harrow though may be less than pleased with that scenario!<p> <img src="graemlins/chat.gif" border="0" alt="chat" /><p>[ 05 February 2002: This message was edited by: Rob the Saint ]</p>

If I had the money, I'd buy the saints and run a girls school rowing team!!!!

This argument is redundant, for the time being.
