Unless there's a real change in the weather, I can't see any reason why it would be called off.  It's dry and sunny up here and forecast to be so for the next 2 days.

I watched it online and I can only echo the previous points - 3 managers, 50-odd players, 2 wins all season... it's pretty obvious where the problems are and it never got as much as a mention. Yes the club is debt free and has some solid foundations, but two most important things are the supporters and what happens on the pitch.  No-one ever started following a club because of the quality of a sports hall nor how the 2nd U-15s are doing.  I was inspired by the 86 trophy as a kid, what do new followers have now?  It's not being a snob but everyone club needs something to inspire and aspire to.  The CSH was a good idea but the eye has been taken off the ball in the meantime and we've gone from plucky Conf national to Northern Prem in that space of time. 

It's far too easy to do "something else" now, especially in Manchester with the like of Salford and FC Utd not to mention the whole money-driven premier league.  Our rep as a traditionally strong non-league club is fast fading and things like the CSH could very much be a white elephant.

I'm going, as it's only 45 mins from where I live now, and I went to the reverse fixture.  Oh how different it could have been had we not conceded that last minute goal first match of the season, just throwing it out there...

Will it be just me or anyone else stupid enough to travel 6 hours there and back to see us spanked by play-off chasers from a club that didn't even exist 4 years ago (keeping it positive and upbeat)?

Legend in the making if we can keep him.

whats the point in making money if we are going to finish mid table.

progress before profits.

To be fair, the profit made last year equated to a whopping fifty quid a week. The year before was a 60 grand loss and the typical profits over the last few years have been four figures.  It's not as if they have been stockpiling cash.

Lets re-sign Joe O'Neil and break even.

Is the club selling any copies this year?

My honest opinion:

He's had a year to look at both the team and the standard of opposition, tried plenty of players, tactics and formations.  Next season we need to hit the ground running and be there or there abouts early on, no excuses this time.  We are still a big name in BSN and should be proud of it.  Have it as Peter Kay would say.

I can't wait till we re-sign him in a couple of seasons when he's played at a higher level/been shat on from a great height (delete as appropriate).

They both may have had enough of the merry go round and want to come home to a club they know and where they'll be first choice.  It's not always the money/fame.

I hope that when the Phoenix club firms we can arrange a friendly.

Amazing what happens when you play your strongest team, players in position and a familiar formation...
