Never met him but he does come across as 'one of our own', a proper down to earth bloke. Love the fact he's as geeky as me with the Utd memorabilia though, I thought I was the only sad act to actually have stuff in the house......

I’ve been shouted down by the sycophants for a couple of seasons but I don’t believe the manager will get us promotion. Too negative, look at the good strikers that have moved on in the last few years and scored hat fulls.

Was so excited about this season but I’m rapidly losing faith again.

I have so much respect for DN and he deserves so much more on the playing side. How many pitch side coach’s do we have, would think between them they could come up with a winning formula.


Same here Bodge, I've said for a long time that CE is managing the biggest club he'll ever manage at the highest level he'll ever manage at.

Once again DN has backed his man superbly, there can be no excuses.

Saturday's result is completely unacceptable, same goes for the 'performance' which I believe belongs in a category classed as 'shameful'.

Personally I'd have got rid after the Altrincham disgrace in the play off final but DN does stand by his managers and gives them as long as possible, but I think most people are coming round to the notion that CE is simply not the man to get us promoted.

It wasn't really a "disgrace" though, was it Andy? Alty were as shite as we were and snuck though on the slightest of margins. You make it sound like we got trounced.

That being said, I know you've been a vocal critic of CE for a long time and I've been a vocal defender of his, but I totally agree performances and results need to pick up smartish as there really is no excuse now. I'm not expecting us to blaze to title glory against full-time teams, but I also do not accept performances like that Spennymoor debacle, and (by all accounts as I wasn't there) Leamington. Huge game v Corby now.

Pete it was an absolutely disgraceful performance, we never mustered a shot on target against a team we'd beaten 5-0 earlier in the season. They did a proper job on us and he had no idea how to counter them. Throw in the fact he has 3 or 4 assistants/coaches on the bench and this is fast becoming another expensive fiasco. However as we know David gives his managers every chance and we only discussed his track record for appointments the other day so I'll leave it to him to make any change.

But a 12th season in this league is frankly not good enough, especially with the facilities now available.

How do the players not know nowadays that you are not allowed to bet on any single football match or football market while signed to a football club?


Because they are idiots Walds?

There are those of us old enough to remember going to Corby in around 1979 and seeing a hell of a lot of trouble before, during and after the game. At that time Corby had a massive steelworks with a large Scottish workforce and I think they saw our visit as a chance to reignite some cross border tensions.

First class from first to last to last mate, Dad really enjoyed his big day out, so much so he wants to book one for later in the season.

I'll do it again sooner that that though, I thought it was pretty good value.

Can't blame people not going, they are sick of being in the same league playing the same teams at the same grounds knowing at best we'll make the play offs.

Despite all the new ground fanfare things are very stale playing wise.

Hoping to get over, finishing work an hour early all being well.

Lovely ground is Causeway Lane, hard to believe in the 70's Matlock were beating the likes of Wigan and ourselves on a regular basis and were enjoying good Cup runs and Trophy wins in front of regular 2000+ gates. Not joining the APL because of the travelling really cost them, all the better Sheffield/South Yorkshire based players went to Frickley and Boston for the better money and Matlock gradually drifted off the radar.

My season ticket in 2019/20 was £230 on the early bird.

I'm now told its £290 with no early bird

Plus £50 to park the car as the new ground is around 2 miles from home so not a viable walk on wet days and midweek

I make that an increase of £110 for me to attend games in the same league.

Thoughts?

A cynic might suggest the fans are now seeing where they are in the clubs list of priorities.......... announce VIP & hospitality packages before the season ticket prices.

Don't worry about us, we just turn up every week, season in. season out.

I'd guess they are at last years prices but knowing how football clubs work they'll probably up them.

Happy to report the Sunday Lunch was faultless, good service, first class food and drink and a decent ambiance in there too.

I'll be going back again in the near future.

If the Pilgrims Bitter is the one brewed at The Phesantry Brewery then that's a fairly high water mark to start at.

At least they've not gone for the easy option of Doombar or Abbott Ale

No One apparently Pete

I had a Twitter run in with their chairman a few weeks ago, got very snotty. Told me everything was funded by sponsors and supporters and it was a proper community club.

Of course I believed him
