we will see how good they actually are on a more of a level playing field

Still it seems Chester have publicised investment ,Boro fans don’t even know if we will start the season with a squad and manager.

Soon be time for preseason training,time is getting shorter by the day for Boro fans.still no news is good news unless you are a Boro fan,then it could well be no news is bad news.

Been mentioned before, but a bloody strong league (on paper) with 5 clubs who have not long ago been in the FL (I don't include Boston).
Bold - recent FL (yes I know, some were different re-incarnations)
Underline - Recent Conference.

Also, many of those without that criteria seem to have money backers.

My fear is Boro' may be the new North Ferriby.

why not the new NF
we have been tipped to be bottom or bottom three for the last three seasons...before a ball has been kicked
we have had a money backer
the problem being not a big enough one
if we can continue to compete in this league whilst paying our way i will be happy ........even if as i suspect im on my own on this one
i will wait and see what transpires first
BTW the doom and gloom surrounding this club is nothing new its been on going since i was a kid with brief interludes
people talk about the good old days and yes there were some but many forget the shit seasons and we have had plenty since the days of Watford ( FA cup )
i read with some mirth the thread on all the great ex players some of you must have been living in a different football world to me whilst a few were excellent, some good, some mentioned were in truth ordinary to say the least.
but each to their own so not to upset the forum taskmasters its all about ones own opinions and they are mine

ps if you want the most underrated player to ever wear the shirt then look no further than Tommy Crawley
the best ever player ive seen never to play league football > IMO.
should have been at this club years before his twilight career spent with us

I am concerned. Whilst I fully understand no-news on sale, there are other things. Understandably no one knows LT intentions other than LT.
I have heard that 31-May is some sort of deadline, but for what?

The retained list not announced - This has to be reported to FA otherwise an Andy Brown/Louis Moult situation.
Pre-season friendlies
International tournament !!!!!!!!!!! :)
Season tickets
Entry prices.

My fear is LT will run the club on a shoe-string, hence my NF fear.

When Boro liquidated things seem to change from "possible play offs" to "demotion" in a very short space of time.
Previously the demise was a slow painful death.

This is a bit of a mixture of the two.
It seems the only person who may liquidate the club is LT.

Any case of "doom and gloom" is justified due to history.

of course there is a BIG problem
im not for one minute trying to dodge the issue
im not contrary to opinion stupid
what im saying is lets see where we go
how you wish to perceive the future is your prerogative
what i do find ironic is that after all the anti Thorn debate on here in the last three years when he has been told to just fuck off in some instances now he has decided to depart its panic stations all round
as i have said before sometimes be careful of what you wish for.
the pessimists and gloom mongers have been proven wrong for the last three years THAT IS A FACT
the problem people like me have is i can only afford to be wrong ONCE !!!
going through life worrying about what might and might not happen is a recipe for a depressing future.

"as i have said before sometimes be careful of what you wish for"

Following up on that point, Joe, I am wondering what happened to all those who wanted Thorn to "give us our club back". Well, now's their chance. He is offering them the club, and as far as I can tell they are not dipping their hands in their pockets to take it. Maybe they should have thought through what would happen if he DID decide to offer them their club.

Names can change Greg.

I have looked at this Forum for many, many years.

I remember the days of 'Lurker', 'Armchair', 'Tugboat'. 'Podge Everard'

Indeed the days of 30+ regular posters.

Now it's down to around a dozen. Mostly because of statements similar to that you have made above.

We are all Boro fans. No need for ridicule because the name is new.

If they expected the club to be given to them free of charge, they are not fit to be trusted with it anyway. I could say "give me NatWest bank" but it's not realistic to expect the current owners ever would - so I'm not stupid enough to ask. I suppose that leads to another question: were the people saying "give us our club back" stupid enough to think they would be given it free of charge? Or were they just posturing and hiding behind a slogan without thinking things through?

To find out the intentions of the people with the banner - you need to speak to them.

I do not know their intentions.

Due to the wording of the banner, I do not think that they wanted to buy the club of Lee Thorne.

Even if they did - nothing would have happened in this short a timescale.

a. Lee Thorn is a businessman.

b. LT is in business to make money.

c. Because LT is still in business, he is successful at b.

d. Since his involvement with NTFC, LT has not lost any money.

e. If LT can realise half a million pounds by selling his assets - LT is half a million pounds in profit.

As someone who is business savvy themselves Greg, does e above seem likely?

C is a flawed equation. I have had lots of relationships. Only one has lasted until now. Many more failed than succeeded. It doesn't make me good at relationships.

D, he has spent about 500k on the club. Only way to make a 500k profit is to sell for 1m. That will not happen.

"Saves" is the key word.
It means less outgoings. Perhaps helps make the business viable, and gives him an income.

Also, with that example, Boro Leisure also saves him £x,000/week BUT Boro Stadium does not get £x,000/week income.
What links the two companies?

I don't know where that came from. My comment had absolutely nothing to do with Lee Thorn, his success or what he can make by selling the club. It seems that you may have invented an argument simply to trash it. Let's get Hulla in here - isn't this one of your famous straw man situations?

You may have a point if we keep we the asking price of the club.

For all we know he may be willing to give the club away, sell the ground and take the academy on himself.

In that case, the original point stands.

and that was very similar to what I was told a few months ago. A comment/rumour that (at the time) I totally dismissed as it seemed to be a knife to stab LT with and with no foundation.

Of course, a mix of predictive text and distraction.

Should be "know" or"knew" not "keep we".

With this "we want {insert club}{insert country}{insert whatever} back" I often wonder who took it from who and when.

You may have missed it, but there was a thread on here (started by me I think) saying how well LT had done given (for whatever reason) he was a one-man-band. Easy to spot the mistakes after the event.

confession
I was one who bemoaned about the running of the club under Noel Kelly. Looking back there is little doubt he had his heart in the right place (but perhaps not brain).

i know an ex employee of the club under Kelly who wont have a bad word said about him
but like all one man shows eventually the well runs dry or a SHOOTER arrives in town and helps to fuck the club up
far far better to have a bunch of local businessmen in charge who know how to deliver a sensible run club who own their own ground on an even keel and we all ride off happily into the sunset ... er...what ! ...oh
well maybe not............. in all instances :-)
one thing about football clubs businessmen run them like they would never dream of running their own business.

Don't really see what the relevance of the past intentions of the Co-op have to do with anything. They are certainly interested in parting with money now.

It has everything to do with it.

You used the current tense "are", whilst referencing the past "has"

"has evolved the product into something that the Co-op are interested in paying money for."

If anything I see the coop being (far more) interested in now due to the perceived state of the club and not because LT has developed it (took over when National Club; now mid-table (at best) North club)

It is relevant because someone higher up in this thread made the claim that LT had evolved the club into something the Co-op would pay for. That is inaccurate, because the Co-op was interested in buying it regardless of what LT did. Who made that claim? Well, that would be ... you ;)

two for starters AR Jones and Johnny Watts
Jones never got to grips with his time with us a big all round disappointment
Watts was brought in by Badham he had two (one and a half to be precise ) piss poor seasons was in a team that was in the bottom half of the league many wanted rid of him along with several others
DK resurrected his career for a season when he was surrounded by some good signings 66/7
dont forget JW was an old man football wise when he joined from Birmingham 35ish at a guess
as for others i will have to go back and read the skipgate long thread
remember one thing are you judging players by ability or the level they performed at
any mention of Straw or Crowley in the thread?

for your information
AR Jones which im pretty certain Mr S was the player in question played for villa at Fulham only a few weeks prior to his move to MP.
at Easter time he centered the ball twice for two headed villa goals, made only a couple of first team appearances. played maybe 50 games central league think he was around 21 years old
he played for some time in the same side as Ken Satchwell remember them playing a big part in a 2-1 win at Kettering

as for Alan Jones he had more chance of playing for Stockingford Villa (relax you lot that was a joke ) excellent club man if of somewhat limited ability but he had his moments i do remember he played under Pleat, a sort of beefed up Rob Oddy for you young-uns :-)
see vs it pays to know your onions before extracting the Michael ........now ask me about yesterday :-)

Indeed. Alan Jones who set the appearance record came up through the Boro ranks, and was a full back. Allan R Jones was a winger, from Villa as mentioned earlier.
