And the misery goes on and on la la la la la la la... how much more can we stand spanked again by mighty Stratford Town. Getting to the stage now where I cannot even be bothered and thought I would never be saying that having supported for most of my life. On the field just gets worse and worse. Do the right thing and give us our football team back and let somebody else have a go before it is too late.

if he and the backers actually cared about the club. He would resign as manager. And continue running the club until another owner could be found or the current backers actually run the club for the town and not throw their dummies out because jimmy isnt manager no more. Do it for the club/town not just for jimmy.

I actually agree with this.

I've not watched this season, yet, but will do so on Dec 11th when I'm in Nuneaton, because regardless of who is owner/manager/chairman/playing for us, it's the club I support/follow. It's my club.

People have the right to walk away if they wish, people have the right to blindly follow if they wish, but whilst 350+ people continue to go through the turnstiles week in, week out, it's been saved for plenty of people. The town has to have a senior club football club, and it can improve/build from that in time if it does exist.

I want it to be ran properly with accountability where you can sack a manager and not where investors/sponsors will walk if that certain manager isnt in charge (upto them i know). Maybe im harsh saying i want it to fold maybe/probably wrong (from anger about the current situation). However you look at it, its embarrassing how its being ran. He surely needs to see something as to change.

Correct, there’s no accountability.
Any other manager with JG’s record would have resigned long ago.
He’s just a lame duck who is too stubborn to stand down.
There’s no shame in admitting failure.
Delusional? Maybe it’s an ego thing?
Yes, we still have a club, but it’s a pale shadow of the club we all grew up following. The football is just awful, the worst in living memory.
Embarrassing.
There MUST be change before the season is over, as the current set up is causing more damage and unsustainable if we want to progress and avoid relegation into the wilderness.

personally im thinking we are more or less already in the wilderness.
maybe after supporting the club since the early 50's
thats the 1950's btw not my own fifties im over egging how far we have fallen.
i know we all tend to look at the past with rose tinted glasses.
but come on.... the biggest town in warks. massive catchment area. etc etc
ok maybe not such a hot bed of soccer as in the past with the mines and factories
in my humble opinion this club badly needs taking in hand...... for surely we're better than this.

i once spoke to a chairman many moons ago about a club he said that he would rather have 10000 moaning bastards through the gates every week
as opposed to 5000 cheering happy fans.... there's a logic in that somewhere :-)

"The town has to have a senior club football club, and it can improve/build from that in time if it does exist."
Totally agree.

Not sure if anyone is bothered but there is a really good summary of the importance of football and football clubs within the UK in the introduction to the Fan-Led Review of Football Governance:

"Football clubs also sit at the heart of their communities and are more than just a business. They are central to local identity and woven into the fabric of community life. The rich history surrounding football clubs is invaluable to their fans, with many clubs having existed for over one hundred years. They play a huge and often invisible role in unifying communities across generations, race, class and gender. They are a source of pride, and often in hard times comfort as well as practical assistance. In many places they are also a crucial part of the local economy."
https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/fan-led-review-of-football-governance-securing-the-games-future/fan-led-review-of-football-governance-securing-the-games-future

I also great to see John Hobson acknowledged in the contributors section of the report too.

I do too. BUT, at the same time, they have no duty to.

Everyone is entitled to do as they please with their money. The backers have no obligation to invest in our club if the person they want to 'back' isn't manager.

the people that attend games are actually investing MJ
i buy a season ticket lets say offhand on a full season 140 quid
multiply that by say 200 = £££££ a season.
add on the other 250 who pay at the gate.
add on the drinks, food etc etc
plus dont forget the ten quid a month 200 club.
when the HELP call went out... i chucked in circa 300 quid with no guarantees.
if every fan had chucked in the same work that one out, it comes to a tidy sum collectively
ok they didnt but yes we all back the club abeit in different ways, amounts.
between me and the gate post i wud chuck a grand in tomorrow
on its own a drop in the ocean but if a 100 done it then things could change.
however having said all the above realistically a buy out is probably the only way forward.
UNLESS some see reason

Fair points Joe, I've made a couple of donations too, merchandise etc, but my point being they aren't obligated to continue to invest in the club in terms of 'running' it I guess.

If they want to withdraw if Jimmy isn't manager, it's their right, same as how much people attend games etc etc.

"we have to stick with it"

I disagree. We could try to work with/nudge/convince people to change the way the club is currently structured. Fully appreciate that people have and continue to try and do this.

I expect part of the attraction financially for JG to take on the ownership/football management of the club as a combined role, is that he can pay himself a wage as the football manager.

If he wasn't the manager, as the owner he would have to find the money to pay someone else to be the manager.

Does that work within the existing budget?

This is definitely part of the problem imo . A good manager , and i assume we want a good one isn't going to come cheaply . I wouldn't be surprised if someone like Flowers at Stratford is on a grand a week . Jimmy isn't going to just give up his wage and do all the jobs involved in running the club for free . I wouldn't if i was him so why should he . With crowds down to 400 or so , as i say even if Jimmy was happy to do what fans want him to it would be difficult .

A follow on question - how do most of the clubs at this level survive?

I guess Stratford get a nice income from their separate floodlight 3G pitch and changing facilities.

Obviously Peterborough Sports are heavily backed, but can you explain who is funding clubs such as Alvechurch, Leiston, Royston, Biggleswade, Barwell, Needham Market and St Ives who we currently can't compete with?

I can kinda accept being below Hednesford, Tamworth, Rushden, Bromsgrove, Stourbridge, but some of the above is totally embarrassing.

You mention Barwell.

Is this the same Barwell who have 5 more points, from the same number of games having hardly played at home all season?

Is this the same Bawell who average about 200?

Is this the same Barwell who only survived in this league due to a former manager who brought money into the club?

They seem to be doing okay without him.

Boro' are the new Barwell.

They have laid a new 3G pitch.

Their expected income from community use is £200k a year.

to be honest yes. This isnt a football club anymore. Its turning into a joke on the pitch. Done well off it but any supporter first wants results on the pitch. Not be able to sack a manager is just embarrassing and not good and if it was anybody else they would of been sacked by the club. Why should people continue to go, while the club is being ran like this. Also if jimmy goes then we all go(investors), there wont be a football club anyway. He can get this club relegated and be at the lowest level weve been and can stay on as manager.

"to be honest yes. This isnt a football club anymore. "

You truly wish the Boro didnt exist any more? Then why spend so much time posting on here about it, and spending free time/money/head space on it?

I dont believe that any Boro truly wants the club not to exist. Do we all want it to improve and all have different ideas on how to achieve that? Of course.

The thing I hate the most is the split in the fan-base.

I can understand bad performances; bad results*; players not being good enough.

*That said - this is the lowest position the Boro have had since joining the SL in circa 1960.
The only time it came close was the start of the season when Stephens walked out.

Conf North
Southern prem
Southern midland

I thought this level was the same as Southern prem, so step 3, or 7. We were a step down when Town, playing Adders, Bedrock and Chase Town.

Kelly era has two relegations from alliance - Southern premier then southern midland

Recently it’s been national - conf north - southern premier

Neale era - straight to sl midland.

So - yes - sl midland lower but not relegated to it…. Which is a possibility

During the Macclesfield programme on the BBC, Robbie Savage penned the cost of the team on a whiteboard, position by position.

He just threw numbers at it for starters & came up with a figure of £150k for the season.

He then targeted £100k as a budget.

Macclesfield are playing in the North-West Counties League Division One, (Step 9)...the equivalent of the Midland Premier League.
