Re: Profit without fans

I'd love this to be the case, but I simply don't think it is just a case of money. Perhaps I'm wrong. My season ticket costs around £400 for me and my son, roughly £20 a game for the 2 of us. That's good value for money in my eyes. As for walk ons, I'm not sure what the answer is, people have to wan...

Re: Team for Thursday

As much as I'd like to see Gibson play, I think I'd prefer Tarks and Mee in to start - I can't see rotating the defence at this point in the season being a good thing. Plus we KNOW that Tarks and Mee works.

Lowton Tarks Mee Taylor
