    Beat them last time we played them under morais and it was the game that turned fortunes around for lee jay and ended 8 straight defeats was it? A last minute Hourihane equaliser?

    Unlikely, it will go towards paying the Crynes.

    Well as you know I am a west stander & I did not come across any Forest fans in the west stand & there were no ticket sales on the day so I doubt there was any but I called it right from the off, they have crapped on us to reduce the home capacity & cut stadium match day costs thus any surplus staff can be used to allow more away fans paying top dollar for the privilege of being on the North stand.

    Why are you having a go at the new CEO (calling him an arsehole) when he's not been in post long at all and probably had no say in this decision? You do realise he does as he's told and it's Conman pulling the strings?
    Unfortunately the new CEO will take all the flak for Conman's decisions.

    I hope they are then they can fcuuk off. We don't need them at the club. Any local businessman is just as capable of not putting any of their personal money into running the club as they are. We'd just need them to use some of the club's profits to buy the club from the club just like these chances have done

    The only way they can save themselves is if they used the extra revenue from the away sales to reopen the west stand, but we all know that’s not going to happen. By telling all the season ticket holders to find new permanent seats elsewhere in the ground they are basically saying it’s shut for good.

    I’m pretty sure 99.9% of other clubs would split the North stand as can be done and give preferential treatment to loyal home fans rather than treat em like sh1tstains on their boots !!! Can’t defend this lot Charlatans pure and simple.

    Mmm
    It’s that the same local business men who didn’t come forward under Patrick .
    Patrick was desperate for someone to take it over and none came forward .

    Yes. The same local business men would be quite capable of running a club without putting any money in. Any capable business person would. The asking price is the problem. I have absolutely no doubt at all that there are local business people who would run the club if it was handed to them (not saying it would be. Just that they would do).

    If the 80% mob were desperate to leave then they'd have no choice but to sell just like Patrick sadly didn't at the end. I am absolutely certain that if he was in better health he would never have sold to these lot.

    I remember that, he was just in front of us going into the stand chatting away to our fans and having photos and they said during the match that we were getting some exciting new signings.

    No local business men came forward when Patrick wanted to sell but yet we expecting them to now? It’s a myth , no ones interested in buying BFC as a running concern .
    I don’t know what the owners are gonna do but I wouldn’t spend money doing my council house up for the people who own it to take the rent as neither would you .

    Does your council house have a significant level of revenue stream attached to it and paying customers to take care of?

    I think most people would if they were living in their council house for years.

    If you ran a shop in the alhambra would you do that up in order to attract more customers?
