For those who thought that Gateshead, Wrexham and Southport were meaningless. If we had won all three we would now be sitting top of the league.
If we had just beaten Gateshead and Southport we would still be in with a chance of the league.
How much revenue have we lost with the gates against Wrexham and Aldershot. Several thousands of pounds I would imagine.


The wife was going away for a girly weekend.
I jokingly remarked  'I don't know whether to spend it watching porn or watching football'
'you may as well spend it watching porn' she replied
That's understanding darling what makes you say that? I asked

She said 'Well you already know how to play football'

And if Bristol and Barnet had won the games where they dropped points we'd be back to third, or fourth or maybe if Nuneaton had won all their games they'd be champions! Meaningless thread!

I did not think the Gateshead was meaningless,

AND

I am certain the Wrexham game was not meaningless because I travelled up from Suffolk to watch that match,

After the game I thought a lot of things about that game,

BUT

Meaningless was not one of them.

I got the impression some did by the attendance, a lot of regulars near me were missing.

I assume some could have done with missing a game for financial reasons given that we have 2 (hopefully 3 more).

It's a shame, but a sign of the times.
