Re: CLUB BUSINESS/SUNDRIES ETC.

I'm not really interested in what Conn/Iles wrote or not. The only people who'll actually know are those that were involved :-)

Re: CLUB BUSINESS/SUNDRIES ETC.

Getting my Appleton's and my Aldridge's base about apex. I assume that the only thing he was actually risking was loss of the value of his own time for whatever services he provided on a "consultancy basis" - which I think is what was reported at the time. If his world wasn't going to stop spinning...

Re: Season Tickets 2021/2022

For those who are periodic visitors to the UniMacBok - how much is usually to park on Car Park C on an individual match basis? I note that parking on Saturday was a fiver - is it usually more than that? Thar long since I've been I can't remember whether it was a fiver or a tenner....think a fiver...

Re: CLUB BUSINESS/SUNDRIES ETC.

That's what I understood had happened too, but I thought at the time (or shortly after), Anderson protested loudly "nowt to do with me, guv." I think he's the sort of gentleman I'd want something stronger than a personal assurance from...If I shook hands, I'd be counting my digits after.

Re: CLUB BUSINESS/SUNDRIES ETC.

So here a question for the group - now that figures are available (chiefly), how close were we to actually going / being allowed to go out of business? My view is that nobody can really answer that at any of the danger points without knowing whether there was a viable takeover possible OR people in...

Re: CLUB BUSINESS/SUNDRIES ETC.

I genuinely struggle with that view, and I thought Anderson had said he couldn't afford it, some while before admin was triggered...It felt like he was trying to craft an "I'm a turn round guy" narrative, which I suspect would have given him some credibility with all the other Clubs in the sh×t and ...

I'm not a format snob Twattish comment. Do you not have a preferred format? I wasn’t calling anyone a format snob or suggesting that preferring one makes you a snob. More that my non plussed reaction to the hundred has had me called a format snob. I don’t think I am. I enjoy all forms of the game. ...

Re: CLUB BUSINESS/SUNDRIES ETC.

As I said, its a long story and its best to take it in small bites. To begin with, the Club Administrators were appointed by Fildraw's legal advisors and it seems to me implausible that the Admins were not fully advised and aware of the secured £10m still owing from the old Fildraw/Moonshift loans ...

Re: CLUB BUSINESS/SUNDRIES ETC.

It was all written off. The whole lot of it including the interest added to the account. The cost to Eddie (and Sue) Davies was nearly £200million, plus the opportunity costs that were the result of taking the money out of profitable investments. You could possibly double that £200million. The last...

Re: Season Predictions

I'm not at all sure....Hope for upwards of half way, would be delighted with any sort of top end challenge for end of season, could see us being lower than half way and with 4 to go down, there's plenty to try and steer clear from at the bottom....We've done a lot of 1-0s in pre-season, Preston perf...

Re: Summer 2021 Transfer Thread.

It does feel with the injury that we're maybe one or two quality folks light. The problem as I see it is we might be fairly limited, should the "step-up" that we're heavily reliant on, doesn't occur.

9 innings isn't it? "Bottom of the ninth" whatever that means. And add in their propensity for ad breaks and timeouts. My brother went at the Olympic stadium a couple of years ago and said it went on forever. That super bowl nonsense goes on for hours and hours too I think. Isn't there only about a...
