Some of the crap hurled at players from the stands can ruin young lads.... do you really want to put them through that?
Throwing decent lads into a poor team will not help them imho

due to a job i was fortunate to meet him in Nottingham a few years back along Steve Cram and and ginger welsh runner whos name escapes me. we even got to run around the athletics track with them. Gordon Banks was a really nice bloke, no Billy Big time, just a decent guy..
very sad

has what you've witnessed over the last few months/years think "wow this EU thing is great, count me in"?
or has what you've witnessed opened your eyes to the way it (the EU) it operates.
i see where Italy owes a trillion... they will never ever repay that, how can a nation be allowed to rack up so much debt
add to that the others where maybe they've overspent and over borrowed. i simply cant see how or when the books will balance.
its a good idea that got out of hand..
if only we had listened to the far left of Benn, Foot and Shore.. they told us in the 70's the way it would go.

The win is the most important...3 points whether its 10 0 or 1 0.
Also a confidence boost..
Hopefully  clean sheets etc will follow

Entertaining game.
I enjoyed it despite only being a draw..
Their keeper pulled off a worldy near the end..
The hit post   the two declined pens  the disallowed goal...the possible sending off...
Starting 3 wingers
The ref allowing throw ins from anywhere... free kicks kind of from anywhere..but if kick a moving ball and thats way off !
Lots of talking points ...a shame it was too cold to turn up for some.

Wow Pete, not project fear then ??? ???

It's all out there if you care to look at the politics of leading Brexit supporters. Keep believing in unicorns if you like.

i do believe in Unicorns... just sold 6 for a birthday party :)

back in the 70's it was staunch left wingers who warned about entry ... now its only right wingers who want out (apparently)... when did it change?
the EU is a mess.. countries either broke or on their way to being broke and a few nations keep helping them up.. how long can this continue?

The reason I think CN is probably our "level" right now is primarily due to the rent we allegedly pay on the ground. I have no more insight to our finances and those of other clubs than anyone else (and even if I did, I'm not really an accountant) but to cite Solihull Moors as an example of a club succeeding on "meagre resources" strikes me as potentially wrong for a few reasons:

- They have bigger crowds than us
- Solihull is a very affluent part of the UK (more inwards investment perhaps?)
- Better location next to the UK's second biggest city
- Likely more commercial revenue made from the ground
- Likely much lower rent
- Their ground is far less developed than ours, therefore much lower maintenance costs

York Street is expensive to maintain and costs a fortune in rent. We are as it stands only the 35th best-supported non-league club in the country. We still have a reputation as being one of the bigger non-league clubs in the country, but this is by reputation only. I don't disagree we should be ambitious and aim high, and I think when we're a successful club again we can easily bounce our way into the top ten best-supported clubs, but I also think a hefty dose of realism as to where we are right now will help everyone appreciate what it is going to take to climb back to the top.
spot on Pete.
"the top" in reality is the league above, possibly L2?
however, i guess we can look at Stevenage, Fleetwood and Forest green as glowing (sort of) lights?
