On the subject of Club 85ers, could do with getting them out five minutes before kick off and then having someone direct them to their seats. Bit chaotic at times last season and a bit frustrating trying to match the first five minutes of the match with them all over the place!

A few weeks ago we were playing well. Losing Wright and Burrows has been a massive negative for us in my opinion.

Chorley are a tough nut to crack - second meanest defence in the league. If our defence aren't the most confident at the moment then I'm not too keen on them playing it around on the ground as too many times I see errors like this. This only works if the midfield are really proactive in coming to take the ball off them with short passes. To be honest, I don't care how we get a result.

Our away form is poor but in total we've won more than lost and no need for panic. Its not like we're second from bottom. Remember the Murray reign - DN wasn't going to panic then - and he won't now.

There's always potential lost income every season if we don't win cup games. Unless the Club had counted on it within their budgeting for the season ahead however, it's not truly lost income.

With respect, I'm not sure how to value your friend's opinion. If he spends most of his time watching Premier League then I don't know how he can state that both teams are average middle of the table sides.

Having only played 9 games and only out of the play off places  on goal difference, it's still early days. I've heard we've only got the tenth biggest budget in the league so that may play a big part in where we end up.

Echo this. Amazing how it's all Elliott's fault when we lose but you hear very little praise for him when we win.

At £20 im amazed they get 85 let alone 885

£21 to stand
£23 to sit down - unless you want to sit in the middle of the stand (where your view is not so obstructed by pillars) and then it's £26
£4 to park

Ouch... be interesting to see the attendance against Barnet on Tuesday night.

Seem to be struggling big time in the league above. Attendances also plummeting- only 885 last weekend and plenty of discontent with their lovely chairman.

Not withstanding the poor result, the fact that the manager hasn't played above the level of the current league is clutching at straws a bit. I don't think Mourinho, Klopp, Tuchel or Thomas Frank have played at the level they are now managing but they're doing ok. There's more to it than that.

Although not at the game on Saturday, it looks like we've been here before. My observation of CE is that he struggles to get the best out of his strikers. Marriott and Tshimanga spring to mind. They are clearly decent strikers but we couldn't give them the service they needed. I think it's the creation of opportunities that is CE's biggest weakness. Something to do with how he sets his team up means we simply don't create enough chances.

Having said that, we've only just recently lost in the play offs and we did have a great FA Cup not so long ago. Every club wants promotion - and particularly one like ours that now has a new ground. But we don't deserve it any more than the next club. DN is very unlikely to be jumping to a manager replacement at this stage IMO.

Any idea of the cost of matchday hospitality?

Thanks :)

Ended up with a cheap Burger King as was a little pushed for time. Got the ground at 1845 and managed to get parked ok. As I was sat eating I did notice how quickly the car park filled up and seemed to be full by about 1920. Lots of cars parked over the other side of the main road down towards the new houses. Sort of half on and off the road. Not sure this will be allowed going forwards ?

Really enjoyed the new ground though :)

Looking forward to my first game tomorrow since the midweek Gateshead defeat back in February 2020.

The big question is,  what are the sustenance options?.....Midweek it always used to be sit down fish and chips at Eagles but with coming in from the direction of Spalding, I won't be attempting to negotiate the traffic into town.

Any recommendations gratefully received  !
