Quality game. Peterborough we’re looking like they were going to run away with it after going two up. Then Coalville started to play and we’re absolutely quality. Could of scored a few more aswell.

how come we cant compete in this league ?
putting aside the JG debate
come on ????
why ?
we should be top six no question
this club is without debate the biggest in the league potential wise.
tell me another
and yes we are where we are, i get that. we should be CN at least
were massively under performing agreed incidentally as a team we look where we are sorry to say.
but even so, at this level !!!
FFS come on ????
ps im no VoR but i just cant weigh up why we cant bring in investment when *tinpot outfits can
* no disrespect, but i say that solely in relationship to us.
i know times change but as the town gets bigger the club declines
answers on a fag packet :-)

I am actually 100 per cent with you, Joe.

Peterborough Sports are more appealing to investors than us (unsure if local but you get the drift).

I’m amazed no one seriously wealthy has approached us at some point. A town of this size has potential to progress.

Given the amount of times we’ve crashed and burnt, I’d have happily had a Max Griggs type retrospectively. League one football then bankrupt sounds better than conference national and plummeting.

I’m amazed no one seriously wealthy has approached us at some point

but the same could be said for the likes of Weymouth, Altrincham, Worcester and many more.

Given boro history "serious money" would surely mean pushing for promotion to FL. Clubs this has happened to include Salford, FGR, Rushden (and perhaps the likes of Fleetwood & Accrington (not sure)).

There was an approach in the early 2000s. A chap called Peter (or was it Paul) Greenwood was given effective control for about 2 weeks whilst he examined the books and the feasibility. I don't know much details about him (or who he was representing), but he had concerns about someone involved in the trust at the time (a confidential meeting was held between him, the trust and supporters direct).

FGR have been funded now for about 30 years and Fleetwood for 15 - 20 and both are still going strong . It's doesn't have to go wrong and if it does in 20 years time , there's plenty that can wrong in that time without a money man being involved .

yes i know what you and vs are saying
i was just thinking in terms of the big picture
ie not talking about local investment here
which people like stuart plumbing etc etc support the club
not knocking them btw i applaud them for sticking with the club.
im talking about an investor promoter of some repute with some clout
maybe im not putting it across very well.
im talking about a buyout of the club with funds to spend
it happens at other clubs they always say you buy when its down and out not when its flying.
if you dont get what i mean i understand

ps maybe the word im looking for is an aeuntranaper big word for me... check spelling :-)

The on-field stuff links with the off-field stuff...

Jason has said that the future of the club in the short-term is OK.

For any external investor to want to show any interest in the club, I expect they would like to see that the long-term future of the club is secure & that the club's home is going to remain at Liberty Way (our home).

Over the next 5 years, I would be very happy if both JG & Jason can secure our long-term future at LW as tenants (that is the cheapest option) & the team can regain their place in the National North...that would do for me...

Anything better than that would be a real bonus.

They seldom work out well;

Reminds me of the Chinese buy-out of a few years ago.
There was Peter (??) Greenwood of the early 2000s. He came and went quietly.

What is needed is a board of directors, each with equal standing.
I know StadiaSafe get a lot of flack, but in the history or Boro (and even many football clubs) they gave an element of stability.

Other than wild gamble I am not sure why Boro would be attractive.

I use Solihull as an example - ground that can be expanded, connection with JLR and no non league clubs near (and not many FL clubs)

not attractive ? answer
a massive catchment area
biggest town in warks.
add on Hinckley the other side of the A5 Atherstone and Bedworth
yes i know about local loyalties and all that. were in the 21first century now
the 20th, coalmines etc etc and all that have long gone. its a different world
also you would buy the ground outright for starters.
i dont want to get into yet another drawn out debate on here with fanciful ideas
i was just saying i think this club is ripe for a takeover from a major investor....
with big potential if done properly.
if you disagree ok.
no problem.

The population of Nuneaton is circa 85k.

The population of Nuneaton & Bedworth is circa 125k.

The population of Nuneaton & Bedworth is expected to grow by a further 10k in the next 15 years.

Only 0.8% of the population of Nuneaton currently watch games at LW...it's much lower for the Nuns...

Buying the land back would only be possible if the present landowner was prepared to sell?

If the answer to that question is yes, the money would need to be raised to fund such a venture...

but (in the 21st century) increase in population does not mean increase in support of the local football club.

Anyone moving to Nuneaton, who follows football will have their own allegiances and this usually involves the screen at the corner of the room.
I often walk past my local community club when the kids are training. Many shirts of teams many 100 of miles from Nuneaton (a few Leicester and a few Villa).
My sons, despite never having lived in Nuneaton still follow and occasionally watch them. The never went to their towns non-league club when growing up or now.

To attract any serious new support would require mass spending, and I really dont see any attraction of spending on NBFC.

in my opinion we were one of the big guns each to his own vs
have we ever agreed on the club ? especially on the field and in the management department ?
were you supporting the club in those days ? home and away ? i was
even in the late fifties early 60s we had numerous crowds of 4000 +
quite a few over 5000 and the occasional 6000. thats for league games btw.
clubs loved it when they played us. big pay days
i admit maybe trophies never matched the clubs support
but i object to you pouring cold water on the club
im not even going to mention the 70s etc etc.
yes we're shit now but dont twist the truth. to promote your take
i repeat we were one of the big guns through the sixties
whether you like that fact or lump it

No twisting the truth - I am using FACTs

These facts / history / achievements dont back up the claim of “big gun”

I know of no source that compares crowds in the 50s and 60s, but that has no relevance to today. Manchester United once had a crowd of 30,000 for a league game against a Wimbledon (so not so long ago).

Never won the top flight league ( 2nd four time and 3 fa trophy quarter finals.

Not sure when you started to follow the club VS but the Boro were massive in the mid to late 60s and a big pull for players, Paul Cutler used to travel from his home in Kent every week to play for the Boro, imagine a player doing that now let alone in the 60s

But history, facts and achievements does not match this.

Boro have a player travelling 100+ miles to play for the club now.

Prior to joining SL (Division 1; not premier) in 1960 I dare say Boro were a big fish in the Birmingham league - winning it twice (but 13th and 14th in final 2 seasons).
Relegated from premier after just 1 season and took 3 seasons to get back to the "top" 22 Southern teams (excluding isthmian league)

To me, a "big club" are clubs that win things. Boro have NEVER won anything (other than regional leagues).

The crowds may be good; hard to see what other clubs were getting. IN 50s and 60s people didn't have the same transport means and hard to compare clubs from other areas.


This was the final table of Boro's last season before joining Southern League;
I can see why they were a big club then..playing the likes of Worcester City reserves. Take out reserves and 'a' teams then Boro would be a "big club" in that list.....in fact, many are in Boro league now; with only Burton higher

Home crowds in that season were circa 1700

Brierley Hill Alliance

In some ways it backs up my argument - Even limited success does not equate to being a "big club"

Because they have (since WW2) won 3 top trophies? Thats 3 more than Boro (who since WW2 have spent most time outside the top non-league division)

I dare say supporters pre WW1 would claim Blackburn was a big club then as they regularly won the FL

you then bring out all these facts and figures !! right ?
NOW here is your Achilles heel
you are promoting who had the best teams ? right
i never mentioned the teams ? YOU did
your using who had the best TEAMS
in contrast to me who stated Boro were one of the biggest CLUBS
you can try and shoot me down till the cows come home bud
but im right Boro were one of the BIGGEST none league CLUB around in the 60s

as ive just posted i only made an original comment on being ripe for a takeover

what i do object to is trying to distort the facts on how big the club was at one point in its history
especially if they were not here
hence they cannot grasp how far it has plummeted. because they dont know.

Then it was a Club that represented the town but now a Club that plays in the town.

Times have indeed changed.
In the early-mid 60s,Nuneaton Amateur League was one of the biggest in the Midlands. There were two divisions of 22 teams,possibly a reserve league too,fixtures were published on a seasonal basis and teams entered from across the country including Brum.
That's how communities (districts) operated in those days. Bermuda v Courtaulds. Nuneaton Co-op Sports v Ansley Social. Etc etc etc.
A community club is nothing new,it's just that communities (district identities) have disappeared into the Ether leaving only the big fish.

I don’t think so.

We are now just “a” football club which plays in Nuneaton and we’ve lost the support of the majority of Nuneationians/town dwellers/ community mainly due to some short term scheming around the liquidation which alienated creditors, sponsors, another sports club and ultimately supporters through unsavoury shenanigans

You believe Boro were “one of the big boys”
Nothing exists to back that up other than perception.

Boro spent most of their time playing in the Birmingham league - about this standard. Why should one of the big clubs be happy at that level.

I was not around during most of history - yet I know a lot. I hear people talking about “the good old days” during and after WW2…. Really?

There is no way to compare one club against another in those days. Life/football was very different.
Other than occasional fa cup games Boro never played anyone north of Stafford or south of Banbury.
News was hard to find - how can any club be compared.

Bug clubs win things - if purely based on attendances it means nothing (I give you Newcastle, Sunderland)

I thought the history of Boro was fairly well documented. I certainly know it through my own family.

After the shock of reformation as Boro it took until the 50s for the Club to get their act together with the big cup run of 54 a big stimulus.

Crowds rose and undoubtedly in the 60s Boro were one of the biggest Clubs in non league football. Look at the gates against Swansea and Rotherham. Does any other non league club come close to those gates?

The 70s saw continued big gates and relatively high finishes in southern league.

Then founder members of the Alliance and the two Carr second finishes. Whisper it quietly but I’m not sure the gates were as low as claimed in those seasons.

Then I’m afraid the story gets worse with the exception of the high spending on Phillip’s team and the brief Wilkin resurgence.

There’s still huge affection/nostalgia for the Boro in the town but to many it now doesn’t seems the same club:

1) leaving Manor Park
2) voluntary liquidation
3) separating ground ownership from the Club
4) bullying and falling out with their sporting neighbour

That’s how I see it anyway and why the low gates these days sadden but don’t surprise me.

but all this debate arose solely because i dared to mention the thought
that the club might be ripe for a takeover by an entrepreneur
never said it would be.
there are no set rules for success only unlimited funds.
success comes and goes

What I'm saying, VS, is that like statistics you can twist facts to prove a point. Based on position in the league hierarchy, Southampton are more successful because City were relegated (more than once) while Southampton plodded along in mid-table mediocrity. Just ask a Southampton fan whether they would swap their trophy hall for Man City's. BTW, when you were compiling the list of Boro's near misses in the non-league top flight, did you include the Southern League days in the 60s?

Since WW2 boro have spent more time outside the top league that in it.

Prior to joining SL-Premier they were playing teams they are playing now (and Worcester Reserves).
How can that be classes as "one of the top two" when comparisons of SL and teams like Altrincham, Wigan, Northwich, Scarborough can not be made.

3 seasons in 2nd tier
1 2nd place

Now analyse by non-league clubs and the rounds they reached in the FA Cup. Number of non-negative results against top flight clubs in competitive matches. By analysing the correct things, you can change how big the club looks.

BTW, I think you said only 2 second places in "top flight" non league. That may be inaccurate (sorry if that's not what you said).

2nd places

1967
1974 - Coleman
1981 & 1982 - Carr

I think I said 3.....forgot 1974

WRT FA Cup.
As we saw with Middlesborough luck plays a factor.
The year we lost to Chasetown I believe they ended up being last non-league team.

ALSO.. until about 1990 teams exempt till 4th QR based on previous
After that, teams exempt based on league.
FA Cup is hardly a measure.
FA Trophy is when you play peers - 3 QF appearances since 1969


I read the other day that Kettering (I think it was them) are close to being the 1st team to have scored 1000 FA Cup goals.

Focusing on 60s (this golden era).... 2 1st round (or further) appearances in 11 seasons.

Having supported the Boro since the 60s I wholeheartedly agree with you Joe, in that period we were certainly in the top 2-3 non league clubs in the Country

Those of us that were there big up the 1966/67 cup run - but we were the last non-league club in the cup that year. We were definitely one of the top semi-pro teams in the country then.

But we never built on it. The 1968-9 side looked very special until Kidderminster beat us in the FA Cup. Perhaps Kernick concentrated too much on the Midland Floodlit Cup that year?

And, given saturdays result Boro are one of the form teams in SL-Premier (based on last 1 results).

The only way of attracting some new support without big investment would be a cup run of Middlesbrough proportions, even then the new support attracted probably wouldn’t be sustained in any great numbers

Nope, it would be rubbish and we'd hopefully never reach the point that a groundshare with a football club outside of our town was ever needed.

It's frightening / worrying how quickly a gap is starting to open up . We already need a mini run / good month just to get to level terms with safety as the teams above us will continue to pick up points here and there .
