  • You are quite correct @Mr67. Marlow are at home to South Park on Saturday in the Bostik (Isthmian) South Central Division. It’s an important game for the Blues as they look to secure a play-off place. South Park are a team from the southern subur…
  • Talking of Colchester, I was visiting a company in Layer Road last Friday. The old ground is now a housing estate & the pub on the corner near the ground (The Drury Arms?) is now a Sainsbury’s local. The new ground by the A12 used to have a b…
  • @glasshalffull said: Malone, let’s not forget that this is, as yet, an unproven allegation from an anonymous poster. There are usually two sides to every story and I agree that it would be good to hear the club’s version of events before this ver…
  • I am very willing to help the club but do not want particularly any particular designated post as such. There are lots of other people with great experience who could also help. Brian Lee, for one, now that he’s moved back to the Wycombe area. And t…
  • We need to quickly move on here and get a Plan B into operation. Lots of things need to be sorted for next season. As a Legacy Member and co-founder of the Trust I still am gobsmacked that I don’t know even what the outlines of the American deal …
  • Calf injury.

  • Andrew Harman’s bid was dismissed by the Trust Board in favour of “Bill & Jim’s”. Can we therefore IMMEDIATELY have details of their takeover plans. This last-minute cancellation is extremely inconvenient. I, for one, cancelled an important bus…
  • Great fighting second-half performance but we can’t keep conceding goals. 3 today, 2 at Oxford, 3 v Accrington, 2 at Shrewsbury. For this reason I’d like to see us try 3 at the back: Sido, Stewart & El-Abd. With McCarthy and Harriman as overlapp…
  • Would somebody in the know care to enlighten us?
  • @StrongestTeam It was actually Park View & Haringey Borough we got wrong. Both clubs are on the same road (White Hart Lane) although Tottenham’s old ground (White Hart Lane) wasn’t actually on White Hart Lane! Park View FC have a seated stan…
  • What an interesting day out - ostensibly to watch Haringey Borough v Enfield Town. After an excellent all-day breakfast at the world-famous Ace Cafe on the North Circular Road Mr Peart & I had a bit of time to spare so we called in to look at…
  • I think my preferred choice will be lunch at the Ace Cafe in Stonebridge Park then a burn-up round the North Circular Road to Haringey Borough v Enfield Town - big local derby in the Bostik (Isthmian) League Premier Division.
  • I would like to see the American bid in writing prior to the meeting on April 10th so that pertinent questions can be put to Messrs Collis & Luby. It will not be acceptable just to have this meeting as some sort of PR coronation of the new owner…
  • A classic case of trying to shoot the messenger if you don’t like the message.
  • Just to pour oil on troubled waters I seem to remember we used to play Hemel Hempstead in the early 70s in the Premier Midweek Floodlit League. Or am I mistaken?
  • Very comprehensive report thanks Steve. It does make me wonder when just 15 attend. One thing springs to mind from your report regarding the catering. You stated that most clubs’ catering outlets close after half-time. Given the delays in leaving…
  • Whatever money is “invested” by either party is only a stop gap. The club is losing £750k per annum. The investment money will only plug that hole temporarily. The absolute key element of either bid is having a clearly thought-out plan to stem th…
  • @TrueBlu None of my friends have the money to take a stake in WWFC!!! If you are referring to Andrew Harman, his formal bid hasn’t yet been presented to the Trust Board, unless you know something I don’t? My interest in this stems from being a c…
  • C-Casuals now have a hard-core support of around 2-300. Nice to see their “megastore” is full of souvenirs too. It’s so much easier to build a supporter base when you own your own ground.
  • Terracing nearest the burger bar!
  • Steve Peart & I went to watch Corinthian Casuals recently at their home game with Harlow Town to see how they are coming on as a club. They played at their own stadium now in Tolworth, Surrey which they share with Kingstonian, after they themsel…
  • I cannot see why the away side would ever agree to it. Devaluing the FA Trophy is exactly the same path the Conference clubs did when they finally were allowed into the Football League Trophy (now the Checkatrade Trophy). After years of bleating …
  • Seriously though, if that was a viable option if they were evicted from the KS we must look at it. WWFC needs 101 ideas to bring additional revenue in. We need to stem the losses and give GA additional funds to strengthen the team and push on for a …
  • In the short-term a groundshare at Adams Park would help both parties if Oxford United are evicted from the Kassam Stadium. It would also give WWFC some much needed additional revenue (as opposed to egg-chasers).
  • As far as I can see the nett accrued losses increased 2009 to 2015 from £30m to £66m. Is this a successful tenure?
  • Gareth Ainsworth was very complimentary towards Luton on 3CR. He said we used to be able to give them a really good game but they have stepped up in class and would surely get promoted. He was very full in his praise of Luton. GA is a class act! …
  • @TrueBlu If you voted on what you know about the 2 bids already then fair play. Can you tell me the outlines of the the American bid please then I will cast my vote?
  • @Twizz Andrew Harman may not have made a formal bid yet but the outline of his plan is to put £2m into the football club over a 5-year timescale & £1m into an academy. Can you enlighten me with a brief outline of the American bid as I have do…
  • @Twizz If we had as much information from the Americans as we’ve had from Andrew Harman would you please be kind enough to tell me roughly how much they are planning to invest over what time period?
  • @Doob If this is what they got it’s (again) below their full entitlement. I’m surprised a club like Brentford doesn’t want to maximise their revenue - given their whole ethos is based on Moneyball.
