Have the Class of 92 paid BT not to show the Salford end? I bet the Conference lose loads of cash paying out for Wembley having these two in the final. A lovely performance of the national anthem too - they could have at least got a band who’ve played instruments before.

Did anyone know that Salford are part owned by some former Man Utd players? They've kept that one quiet.

Nah, it’s a phone that’s illegal mate  
Incidentally. Beckham has got more points in the last month than Man U. (He got six, they got five) 😄😄😄


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'

Looks awful.... Worse than Aswad Thomas if you ask me....now Salfords left back (who I think is actually a RB) looks better.  In truth both teams are awful and they would need to invest in better players.

Another team joining L2 that will have more money and momentum than us, I noticed one bookie has Town as favourites to go down looking at who’s come up and down from L1 they might be proved right.

I’m sure that bell chopper Peter Swan regrets getting rid of Alexander who I think is a half decent manager.

Piergianni is the type of player we’ve missed since Pearson left. Non stop talking even when 3-0 up and coasting and into double figures for goals scored.

At least its localish for me but I bet getting tickets would be like finding rocking horse poo when we do play them.


What is the capacity at their place?

On the basis the bookies don't know what players teams will have when the season opens  I wouldn't get my knickers in a twist

8049 in attendance.

That is truly shocking. Tinpot.


Half the previous lowest attendance (I believe) which was Wrexham v Newport.

Is it the same Piergianni that was at Boston a few years back? If it is then we definitely looked into signing him.

Its interesting when you listen to the stewards enquiry after the game discussing how they might do next year. Momentum is the key and the examples are Lincoln, Bristol Rovers, Tranmere and FGR. What a shame we couldn't harness the momentum and kick on. Still, I believe the new portakabin was a beauty

I don't think you mean we as in the fans, I fully believe the desire from the terraces to kick on was there in abundance... that first game when we got off to a flying start at home to Morecambe, the atmosphere when we scored was priceless

The opportunity to harness that was there, but they ( that is the club's heirarchy ) just didn't want it the same as us fans

Total 5 thousand and something, away fans in a low covered stand behind one goal no idea how many it holds plus 200 seats,
Think it would be like at Alfreton (but more modern) if we went for it

Did I hear the commentator say the Salford centre half Piergianni is in double figures for the season? He looks a brute and never shuts up talking to his defence. Imagine??


Carl Piergianni, ex-Boston United centre half, left them to take a year out and then returned to Salford to resume his footie career.Scored some good goals for Boston, mainly headers,puts his head where it hurts and spent quite a few games in a head bandage.

If we were to take our usual 500→1000 fans over the Pennines, it might make it a bit awkward getting a ticket I guess but not impossible

I mentioned on here a year or two back that he would be a good signing for Town after seeing him play several times at Boston,didn't realise we looked into signing him.

Due to financial rules they probably cannot spend anymore then us, but I would assume they have good contacts with clubs like Man U and Everton to get under 21's on loan.

Nobody can be surprised we would be the bookies favourites to go down.

I said this a few weeks back - our record over the last 15 years or more is so bad it is obvious we will be among the favourites, having finished 18th and 17th in the last two seasons.

I think all Town fans must by now realise we are also rans; no longer even a lower half fourth division club. It pains me to say it, but it is true.

We need change, and we need it fast or we face another decade of misery, including relegation back to the Conference..

I'm not sure what the rules are Abdul19.

but maybe those in charge are only interested in whether the club has financial stability regardless of fan base.

Do Salford, AFC Fylde, etc have the finance to keep the club afloat, yep.  Should a club with a small fan base be allowed to pay high wages on players?  Well it is their money, but its a little unfair on the other clubs.

Clubs in the League 1 and League 2 operate within a Spending Constraint framework termed Salary Cost Management Protocol (SMCP). SCMP limits spending on player wages to a percentage of club Turnover. In League 1 clubs can spend a maximum of 60% of their turnover on wages - in League 2, the limit is 55%.

This is the big issue. Fanbases just don't come into it at all anymore, I've always felt against anything that safeguards clubs to any position in the pyramid, but I'm feeling my opinion start to change when you now look at how many small clubs are being bought out and lifted up on the forest Green rovers template.

From a millionaires point of view established league fanbases comes with high expectations, larger old grounds are expensive to run or need replacing. It's much easier for them just buying small teams with small fanbases build them an IKEA ground that meets the league requirements and the only expenditure is players and staff.

And from the efls point of view they'll have less crowd issues, these owners would be happy to play Premier league u21 teams and go along with whatever changes the efl wants to do.

Match attending Fans are a nuisance and stand in the way of the elites international TV rights sellout vision of football and they'll happily let the soul of English football die.

Sorry I thought I'd type this with a solution in mind but I'm just feeling really bleak now 😂

Pfft. Talk about millionaire owners is old hat. The Singaporean chap who owns most of Salford is a billionaire. 9 zeros, baby!

One of his companies (or perhaps even the company of one of his flunkies) will sign a ridiculously generous sponsorship deal and, voila, they aren't breaking the rules. It will be small change for Lim.

That's pretty much what FGR do isn't it? Ecotricity probably pay massively over the odds for shirt sponsorship.

Yep. Mansfield, too, to some degree, I expect.

'Financial Fair Play' is only as fair as the rules behind it allow. The League really don't care if a load of super wealthy people come in to take over clubs and fund them well beyond their relative size. In fact, they are probably happy with the situation. I don't doubt they take a cut one way or another.

FFP is just lip service to fairness, because that's the way it is designed to be.

FFP? Player signs for a club and gets to live in a property that’s “owned” by that club, a smart lease “pool” car and various other sponsorships and incentives that would certainly make their weekly basic go a lot further....... there’s ways and means to attract players and get around the rules.

Absolutely not!

We don't want some multi billionaire Johnny foreigner (or worse some retired financially successful ex-premier league player) coming in, paying off Fenty, building a swish new stadium, giving Jolley an unlimited transfer budget and getting us into the Premiership in three seasons do we?

After all lots of people on here hate clubs with lots of money and detest Premiership football so presumably they wouldn't want to follow the club anymore


Well I did try to tell you all Jolley was a mistake

JSF will never get Grimsby into the Premier League. He hasn't got the money, the right people in the right places or the nous to get us there.
If he is still going to be around for the next few seasons, like a millstone around the club's future, then I would be happy with League 1.

Why would we want some to come in and put pay to what Town fans love most?.........,,,,moaning about how we are a “once great club” and how great we where in decades gone past.

I don’t like the “billionaires play thing” bit but it seems to be the growing trend.

Would we?
