    No, just season ticket sales.

    They can't get anyone for 10 bob..As a corollary to that we will soon be appointing our first coach with excellent experience of the Azerbaijan 3rd tier..You heard it here first

    In the absence of any further explanation, this compromised our reputation as a club which tries to do the right thing.

    My reason - The new head coach has signed, but due to ongoing commitments with his current club still having games to play a joint decision has been made not to announce the appointment at this time.

    Who, the BBS?
    As much as there as some loud voices on here, the majority of posters realise that the owners of the club have appointed a director of football to spend their money on the appointment of a head coach. It’s in no one’s interest that they get this appointment wrong. We’ve been in the play offs for the last two seasons, and anything less than that next year will be seen by the fans as a failure, regardless of how much tougher the league will be next season.
    It’s absolutely right that the club take their time and appoint someone who a) they believe can get us promoted next season and b) who wants to be here and sees us as the basket case project that we are.

    So your b answer signifies that you agree with me to some extent. Like too many times the bridesmaid not the bride. I know you have to give them time etc. But come on we all know even going back to stendals first time here he gets us promoted but then the board do not back him, which is basically what happened with Duff he gets us to a play off final and had the makings of a very good time but he wasn't going to get any backing so he left

    you don't think Duff was backed?

    In Jan 2023 we got:
    Isted
    Watters
    Russell
    Bobby Thomas

    Basically the spine of a team!

    He left before we'd done any transfer activity in the summer.

    We haven't appointed one. There are no other reasons. This is the right answer and there is no debate about this. None, zero.

    I just don't think he fancied a rebuild job after we knew Andersen and Kitching were likely to go. I think he'd have sanctioned the sale of Collins because had he stayed i think Isted would have signed.
    It's all hypothetical, but Duff chucked in the towel as soon as Swansea came knocking. He might have convinced Kitching to stay another season. I can't blame the board for the fact the Duff showed no loyalty, only that before we had a new manager we allowed someone, I assume the previous CEO, to sign players of which very few have been decent. For all I know though perhaps Devaney and Hassell looked at them and say, "That Andy Dallas might be a game changer, sign him no matter the cost!"

    But what i heard was that Duff didn't show loyalty because the board wouldn't listen to him about who and what he wanted which is the story i believe because after watching the reds for 71 years this situation has happened too many times in the past. The old saying speculate to accumulate doesn't exist on grove Street

    I'm not saying you're wrong, but also there must have been 6 or 7 chairmen/boards in the last 71 years. The issue can't always be with the board. As a club, based on our fan base/town size/financial status, we're a tier 3 team and without either significant unexpected success or significant unexpected investment, nothing is going to change. I would have thought with all your experience of Barnsley FC you'd have got used to it. My first match I attended was in 1989 and in theory you would expect that having being spoiled with the Premier League promotion, and numerous play off campaigns, I'd have higher expectations than you, but it seems like even people who have watched 4th tier football are unhappy with where the club is currently.

    But the stats, which our beloved board believe in, point that we are in fact a tier 2 team as we have played in that league more than any other english team and by a good many years

    Before the game became all about money, yes. But we can’t keep pretending that the football landscape of 2024 is the same as 1984.

    Doesn't alter the fact the stats say we are a tier 2 side not 3. Yes no team has a god given right to play in any tier, but that is where the super reds have spent most of their life

    Don't get me wrong, I want us to be in the second tier, I just think that since the Premier League era, and particularly since Abramovich bought Chelsea, the whole dynamic of the football pyramid has changed and it's now all about the money. Next season we're going to be playing against Wrexham who have basically "invested" their way out of non-league to the third tier in 2 seasons. It's turning into fantasy football and we're a small fish in an ever increasingly large pond. We're relying on transfers and head coach appointments being "well researched" or "lucky" because we can't compete on fees or wages with a third of our own league, never mind the leagues above.
