This morning Pure 107.8 FM announced they will still cover County games. Live coverage of Division 6 is a great effort from this community non-profit radio station.
Thank you Pure.
And this coming season let's hope the coverage gives those who can't go to watch County plenty of reasons to leap up out of their armchair / potting shed / workplace to celebrate yet another goal for the 'hadders' as the team from Edgeley Park race away with the ... goes and looks up the name of this regional competition we are playing in.... sorry, race away with the Blue Square Bet North division title. Scoring 100+ goals in the process.
Too much optimism for you?
Yes, I agree.
After what came as a little bit of a shock to me when the Conference great and good admitted poor Aldershot into the BSP (despite not having a single player signed up I believe... County have a grand total of 9 players now) I had to reflect on just what a shambles the whole situation is and succumb to the dark thoughts that most of the guys I know following County suffer from.
The season ticket money from around 2/3 of last years number 'is now in the bank'. This of course forms the bulk of our yearly revenue.
Did you buy yours on a credit card for protection?
The club that has been losing money since the slate was wiped clean after administration is contracting (in terms of staff employed, probable attendance next season and also general goodwill) and I wonder whether we are anywhere near break even now?
Remember our biggest driver, Spencer Fearns, who had appealed on a number of occasions for additional investment, has stepped away from the club only 48 hours after giving a big thumbs up to everything.
The club owe him a large amount of money.
Then we had a new chap brought in to secure investment, only for him to leave after a week or so. Can't be bothered to dig out his name.
So we are left with our Chairman Lord Snape (who has on occasion been heard from in order to criticise a manager or complain of abuse from the fan base, but who as remained silent these last few weeks) and Ryan McKnight who has alienated a section of our support and faces a most difficult job keeping the club running in my opinion.
So, predictions on this season range from;
'We won't even kick off this season' and 'We won't make it past February' to a few folk who talk of romping away with the title.
My own thoughts are that we will win more than we lose but surely there must be a real risk we will run out of resource before the season ends?
So if your first name is Sheikh, Comrade or Randy, I think County fans have a project for you.
Failing that, hands up who think the fans will be called into action before the season ends?
Please vote in the new poll entitled Will County....?
