Pff, another example of the board not looking forward and increasing income  Cheesy

Very disappointing that we had loads of possession but the final ball was so frequently poor.
Ringo was injured in the warm up which is why midfield was as it was.

Just as an update,... This was just posted by a Gateshead fan;

"Oh god

Hearing rumblings on our forum that Joseph Cala who tried to buy Morecambe and Portsmouth is the reason that the deal fell through the first time and after doing a bit of research it turns out our new CEO Michael Williams and Mr Cala have bought a club before in Italy and it did not end well with him demanding 100,000 euros to leave


I’m starting to get a bad feeling about this..."

Just back, won 2-1 good workout against a decent looking Trafford side on a bobbly pitch. The pick of the Alty players was Lloyd Bannister at RB, get him signed up, great touch, gets forward, I reckon he could play right wing too, pace to burn, looks really great find. No wonder Parky didnt keep Miller or Rokka. Wynne did OK apart from their goal which was a decent finish but poor marking at the back at a time when we lost our way after lots of player changes. Should have won much more comfortably but loads of shots off target most by JJ, lost count how many times he missed, but fair play he keeps getting in them positions.

Were any IOM players sufficiently good enough to warrant Phil taking an interest in future?

Main site says ‘new signing’ Sean Miller? Have we signed him on again?

It was a typo, it meant Sean Williams but I reckon Miller might yet get re-signed.

I suppose being a bit of a technophobe I wouldn’t notice technical issues with the old site. I just know it was very easy to use which for me is the main thing. I’m not a massive one for change and like a good moan but I’m sure I’ll get used to it.

We are committed to giving our fans what they want from the new website and across all our other services. We know we are not yet offering an equivalent service to the imperious John Laidlar yet, but it is our intent to do so.  And Matchday Updates is certainly part of this. You may recall we have not always been able to offer Matchday Updates for Pre Season Friendlies so please don't be so quick as to write us off.

And please understand the distinction between the platform (the look and feel) and the content (what's on it). We feel we have improved the platform but, again, we have a lot to do to get the content to the same level.

Can I ask for two things - the first being some tolerance from our fans as we grow the content, the second being to make sure we have all your suggestions for umprovement.

The website is provided for all us Alty fans.  We would be stupid to not provide what we need

If it's not broken then don't try and fix it?

I liked the old site too, however since the excellent John Laidlar was stepping down, it was the right time to introduce a newer and more up to date platform, we must look to the future you know Martin  Cheesy

I think we've got to "suck it and see". Try it for two seasons and see what the result is...

Err,.. bankrupcy !

I am all in favour of FT football, its the only way the club can progress on the field long term,.. but it has to be well planned and affordable without making us go bust.
I accept that to some degree, the success will depend on how well we do, crowds are a huge part of the equation, maybe thats what Ian J was meaning,.. ?

But starting from where we ar now, I think most serious people will realise this would only be possible now with some serious external investment and thats what we have struggled for years to get.

Pukka Pieman as usual delighted to see a lack of investment at the top level of non league football.....shrugs shoulders, no point in having ambitions...may as well give up eh?

1 of 2 things will happen at Gateshead......they will not find an investor capable of taking them forward at full time status so will keep looking but stay as high as they can as a part time sustainable club probably beating Alty at every opportuinity......
or they WILL find another investor, they will go back to full time status, compete at the top of the national league, aim for promotion to the football league, big cup runs and perhaps a trophy final.....


You clearly dont read my posts do you !

I am just as ambitious as you. Not only have I actually invested in the club but been an integral part of seeking it for many years. I bet I have tried a damn sight more than you have  Roll Eyes

But having this experience has taught me the REALITY whereas so much of what is posted is a mixture of wishful thinking and downright desperation.
There are some key factors why people would invest in Alty,.. the fact that nobody has invested heavily in at least 20 years I know of should give you a clue.

I want Alty full time and in the NL and hopefully the FL in my lifetime, is that ambitious enough for you Jezza  Wink
