well done all.
now lets have a real go, throw the kitchen sink at it
as it stands nothing to lose and all to gain
Curious look to the league table. Only 10 points between 1st and 11th placed teams. And despite us having a healthy 40 points from 26 games, if teams below pick up reasonable points from their games in hand, our "true" position may be 13th!
Mediocrity abounds I think.
Agree, good result.

Fair play to Jimmy he mixed things up today with only a very small squad to play with and a very good win at a side who've given some of the better a sides a difficult game this season .
Good result today, think it’s a case of will try and make the play offs with the players we have but won’t be bringing players in to try and get there
out of curiosity Davey
how do you arrive at that opinion ?
is it a guess or you have been told so
As I have posted below JG said in the paper this week basically going to stick with the players we have left now and stop all the ins and outs
at least we might now get some consistency.
far far too many ins and outs.
fwiw i thought it bordered on the farcical
Disagree .... Can see at least a couple of loans coming in.
JG said in paper in the week basically going to stick with what we have now
Didn't see that .... But if that's the case either were stopping within budget or no real ambition to make the playoffs
I think we should stick within our budget, which has already been shown to be too ambitious
"I'm not interested in your opinion" Tommy Wright, after 6-3 defeat at Blyth.
is there any time scale given to the figures.
some of it does appear to be past history to me
ie HMRC, historical debt etc which must have been settled to continue
also interested parties/investors have been turned away due to not
appealing to the ethos expected / needed ?
if the present budget has been proven too ambitious has it not been cut
which appears to be so looking at the squad and departures
for what period does the 100k shortfall fall into last season / this season ?
as it states its just a generalization of the big picture agreed
its good that we are updated
not knocking it in any way shape or form just commenting on the details given
and when they apply to.
ps im certain Mark will comment on events
Hi Joe, I had to step down from the Co-Op in October due to family/work demands, but im sure that the co-op board can answer any questions.
cheers M no problem
i do know one to speak to
im sure he will put me right . . . . if need be :-)
The £100,000 figure is WOW on two levels.
Amazing a lower than expected attendance figure resulted in a loss of £100,000 (£15/game equates to 300+ missing on the gate).
Amazing that £100,000+ has been recouped by other business activities.
To say "live within budget" is an open statement.
If the playing budget today is the same as August then thats not cutting budget. If its been adjusted to reflect actualities then it has been cut.
Has it been cut? who knows (well some do). Departures indicate it has, but had it been exceeded with the signing of the likes of Breedon & Hood?
My view, is the club have decided to consolidate this season, and start afresh next season.

thats why i commented on the time scale of events and figures.
how long is the timescale they project does it include the disaster of last season ?
or from when ? to ??
to lose 100k in half a season is mind blowing
so would expect a lot of the debt to have been in place pre season
think there was some comment made last season about the debt inherited / or unknown
again not knocking, just surmising.
I am guessing/hoping the £100,000 is a projected figure.
It's easy to extrapolate any figures like this, but its a complex matter.
I wonder what new debts arose? (guessing) but if books were not kept in check (and thats an easy assumption to make) then creditors will creep out of the wood work.
Didn't Neale/Thorn/Smurfwait/Hawkins/Ginnelly (maybe) say the debts were worse than expected :)
NO PROBLEM, but I suspect this season has been written off - Just tread water and start afresh next season (with less optimistic gate figures).
Even taking out inherited debt, it does point to how much it costs at this level (how do other clubs manage?) unless boro budget is/was massive in comparison to most.

A bit of stability may actually improve performances and results too
agreed ....but... do we know we are?.... is there any room for maneuver, free loans etc
just asking .
Also agree with that, some loans are cost free and worth exploring if the player will provide that extra spark
Have you read the Co-op /club statement?
