The B-Ark / Re: Best non league team.

Depends how you term historical

some of the big amateur London clubs dwarfed the midlands club, Tooting & Mitcham, Walthamstow, Dulwich etc

then there were the powerful north east clubs like Bishop Auckland and Crook Town

Looking at the midland League it was a mix of FL reserve clubs and smaller non league sides like Grantham, Gainsborough, Kings Lynn, Goole etc, Boston were a bit unique really being a big non league club in that league.

How much did it sell for?

If there's something that takes my fancy I'll get Josh to bid, CBA to join a group full of Green Street wannabee's and keyboard warriors!

Just adding to this I'll be dropping £128 in to Cookie this weekend for the sale of Paul Bastock's DMPL Champion's flag and a bagful of programmes.

Thanks to all who bid on these items and thanks to Paul for the very generous donation.

I've always thought the club should allocate you a seat as a ST holder, either let you in and choose or give you a plan of the stand and let you pick your seat. But at present its a free for all, I couldn't have my regular seat v Rochdale or Kings Lynn due to people just plonking themselves down!

Now we know where we are next season they soon want to be getting prices advised

Its not the disagreements I mind, that's football, everyone has an opinion.

Its how personal people get, and the out and out rudeness that I can do without.

As you know I do the Facebook photo archive and I'm pretty sure we've had no personal stuff on there, if there was it'd be removed and the poster blocked. I think in all the time its been up I've only ever refused to allow about 8 people on, and all were known to me because they made a point of getting personal on social media.

I'm not a member of the BUFC Facebook Supporters Page (too many immature comments after a poor result for my liking, and too many idiots full stop) but I'd have liked a bid on this. Any chance next time we get an auction it can be shared a bit wider please?

The attempts on here to sum up another clubs finances with a couple of multiplications when you have no clue what's going on are laughable.
Couldn't agree more. Someone on here couln't even get the admission price correct when doing his sums. Same as when people speculate on players wages. Laughable at times.
Silly of their Chairman to go cap in hand to the supporters the way he has though. Dispels the myth that he appears to like to perpetuate that he is a very wealthy man. Has he sold the Bentley now? If so, I hope he can remember if it was leased or not!
I woud guess that a grand sum of £500 achieved so far by supporters pressing the Donate button proves that he's on his own when it comes to finances. Not too many supporters donating if, as according to their forum, one has donated £100 and another £60! Well apparently he likes to work on his own and unimpeded, so doubt that he will be too bothered about that?
Corona virus can't be blamed for the Clubs current hardship, if a top of table club with a massive  upturn in gates and income needs 100k to get them to end of season. Looks like a case of hand to mouth finances. Someone appears to have got carried away and a lack of business and common sense is coming back to bite him.
Be a shame if the Club does suffer due to one individuals actions. Apart from the circa 300k (Club accounts) he's put in (sale of pub?) to get them to the position they are in, I don't think the majority of Kings Lynn supporters think he has brought anything else to the Club.
Supporters also wondering why they are hearing nothing from Culverhouse or their Director of Football. If they are asking for hand outs from supporters to fund their wages, you would think they would at least have the decency to communicate with them.
As Semion has said, could be good money after bad.
Strange lot down the Road.
I suppose at the end of the day, everything will come out at the end of the season, no matter how much has been spent etc, nobody can deny that so far Culverhouse and Bazza have done a great job, but after all it is the chairman's job to control the finances, as l have always said, if our late chairman had said no to Evan's we probably wouldn't have gone bust.
But l do believe the fuse was lit long before Evan's arrived.

Too much focus on Kings Lynn .   How many teams at our level can survive on gate money ?   
I foresee even more lower league footballers than we have become accustomed to out of a club in August .   As it will be in most professions pay cuts will be the order of  the day .

Hope you're right Pete, for too long absolutely mediocre 6th rate players have been earning salaries that totally dwarf their ability. If one thing good comes out of this whole episode its that a little more common sense is applied to wages at ALL levels of football.
Of course give it 6 months and another KL type situation is bound to arise.

£100,000 shortfall

4 games left

Average gate 1400

1400 x £12 x 4 = £67,200

The maths don't add up.

It'll end in tears

Curzon do absolutely brilliantly to not only compete but thrive at this level. I know when I went the queue for the match at The Etihad at the tram stop by the ground was almost as big as the attendance that afternoon. Such a shame the people of Aston Under Lymn don't show a bit more interest in their local club instead of splashing £35-£40 a fortnight on the multi millionaires down the road. Its a first class facility Curzon have and I understand they have a superb community set up too, I guess support for the bigger clubs will always be ingrained in people in the area though.

Could not agree more Andy. I would encourage anyone thinking of going on Saturday to definately make the effort. A lovely little stadium with a great playing surface where you are welcomed with a smile and a nice drink in a welcoming little club house, and no silly segregation like Brackley. Great little club.

Just to add, on Saturday I got there and there must have been a couple of hundred people milling around waiting for kids games on the astroturf to finish. And I bet less that 1 in 50 stayed for the game. Lots of Citeh and Utd kits, not one CAFC shirt though. Apart from the game a good day, smashing club shop and a decent bar, even the burger and chips were edible.
