  1. Success breeds success!!! It seems at last a number of members are now really trying to come to grips with the realities of our position. Taking the last two posts I find myself in agreement with the following observations. To me the most important one is contained in CC comment. It is similar to the one which I wrote at the time when AL was appointed. I believe the other two rejected candidates were younger, but one highly successful as an assistant manager at a much higher non league level. But probably deemed to have no experience of managing a tight budget. However, AL ob
  2. Strange I remember saying a lot of this over 3 years ago especially when we acquired the lease on the QE2. I now find myself having sympathy with both sides of the argument. Why, because both points of view have very little merit unless one side or the other pushes for change. That will I am afraid split the club down the middle. I have always thought that since the club achieved entry into the Ryman Premier league the majority of members, what ever side they were on, were happy with the default position of the club retaining the status quo. I believe that is where AL came in and to be f
  3. Just a tip to management. The manager of Welwyn Garden City Div, 1 in the Southern League Central, seems to know what he is doing. There must be others around doing the same. I doubt that their budgets are as much as ours.
  4. I am afraid I missed to nights game but kept tabs on what was going on. Pleased to see that we were still 2 up with about 14 minutes to go. Could not be believe it when we finished 2-2. But then I wasn't really. Like you CC I have made my views known about AL. It is not the first time his lack of organisation in defence has let us down in the last few minutes. Why do we always continue to chase a game already won. I am afraid I am getting to old to wait for the phoenix to rise again.
  5. It's seems a bit pointless us all squabbling over whose right or wrong. As I said in my previous note I understand and recognise that so many different views can be argued. But if Boris sticks to his word, that is if he can remember what he said, then in the middle of the month many tiers may be change. But don't hold your breath!!!!! My concern is that, in order to simplify things for him, we will all be in tier 3. With the exception of County Durham where no doubt Dom is enjoying his pay-out. Ps. I must admit I am rather perplexed by reading the list of Friendly matches being pla
  6. I too respect your view RG. In fact you have put a very strong case and actually there is very little for me to disagree with. But I suppose I am still sitting on the fence. Probably hiding behind it. Let see what happens by the end of the year. The coming winter weather may make the current decisions that have been taken null and void.
  7. I agree with Steph and Reb the most important thing to me is that as many people come out of this as healthy as possible. Especially those closet to me. Decisions have been taken, many of which I find hard to accept, as they have taken away almost a year of my life which I can ill afford. But then as R says one has to accept " the bigger Picture". When restrictions are finally lifted we will appreciate what we have missed. But will enjoy things all the more. To me returning to watching football and to a near normal life will be like the ending of sweet rationing after WW2 and buying
  8. Your so right Andy!!!! I forgot to say " and no substitutes" If you were injured you played on so long as you could run all for about £20 a week or a couple of quid tucked in your boot...... shooosh!!!!! How did that get there 😇😇
  9. If you had seen Wilf Mannion, Johnny Haynes, Puskus, Jimmy Greave, Len Shackleton etc you wouldn't need to ask. But then I know your just kidding Andy. But for the youngsters who really don't know it was a midfielder, playmaker and striker all in one. Those were the days. Heavy balls, big boots and muddy pitches but still plenty of skill.
  10. It was tongue in cheek Andy and perhaps somewhat over indulgent. I was just airing my thoughts as stimulation by considering the possibility as to how we could get some money out of the situation. It has nothing to do with whether one plays football or not but I was thinking about whether the duty of care obligations of both parties in a joint venture applies, ie In a Duel Registration, could be a cause for retribution. On second thought though I feel OT's suggestion probably has more merit so my comments are best left alone and disregarded . However when, as you say "what ma
  11. You are probably right Andy. But since we are constantly being told we are in unprecedented times, perhaps now is a good time for smaller clubs to lobby their respective leagues to approach the FA to bring in an unprecedented rule by placing an embargo on movement of players. This would be in keeping with the Govts 3 tiering regulations ie T2 into T3 ( Kent). Just a thought, since we are all supposed to be in it together. We might as well use the incredible laws being made made by ministers and civil servants. Although my post was meant to be tongue in cheek, since most of my workin
  12. Could this just be the catalyst. How many more players will we let go. I think the the club is nearing the turning point and if we are not careful could be on the way back. If this is allowed to happen again I can see a plea to raise more funds will fall on deaf ears. What would be the point!!!!???
  13. Sorry to hear the news. Probably one of the best non-league players of his time.
  14. The last few posts completely some up the problems of being a club like ours. Each submission has it's own merits. However, the one thing I think we can all agree with unreservedly is the last para of AT's comment quoted above regarding our Chairman who is continuing the tradition of service to our club started by other family members.
  15. Gosh these " amicable arrangements*" certainly become confusing!!!!!! From what I have learned about the football world in the passed, CC, there is no such thing as sense or logic. It seems that in their world the watch phrase is " hang on to what you have got what ever happens, or at least until the price is right, whether legit or other wise.
