You've admitted yourself that your squad is absolute dog.

Ours is far from it. Where is any logic in your prediction?


I don't recall anyone stating it was 'likely'.

What though, supposing you lost the next two, and we won them, would the points difference be?

9 points, and after we've won both and you've lost both it will be 21, which will of course be more than 150% of the points you would have after 20 games, your point is.

Your and some of the other Cheaterfield fans optimism is staggering ( no pun intended). I think that was your first home win under your new manager. Some fans seem in awe of him even wanting to name him Lord Jack Lester of Chesterfield. Goodness knows what their reaction will be if you happen to beat the Veggies. Perhaps you will have a parade through the town centre. :)

In fairness to them, i'd have been delighted with 4 points from Swindon away and Exeter at home (we've played both at home and got 1).

It's whether their form has improved slightly under a new manager, or whether they then fall.

Forest Green are a massive acid test for them tomorrow- they were beyond hopeless when they came here, though they themselves have improved.

When comparing our squad to Chesterfield, the difference in class is massive

Derby days are different and form etc. Go out the window, we’ve got quite a few experienced players so hopefully we’re able use it to manage the game in our favour.

Just under a week to go, have they sold out yet? Genuine question... or are they still busy buying tickets in Q block?...

Oh i'm sure Chesterfield will be like what Notts Co were, stating how they'd got 500 in the home ends when it was about 30. In a full block it was really obvious when 2 lads walked out straight after we put the 3rd past county - it would be the same here.

Like County they'll bang on about getting 5,000 plus - well done to them - not much use when bottom of the league :lol:

Never understood the fascination of attendances - Bradford average more than Bournemouth do, what division are they in?

The point I was trying to make is how much praise they are giving Jack Lester. They are being extremely optimistic that he is their saviour. AM saved us from relegation back into non league, but I don't remember us being as euphoric. In fact when he he was sacked the following season most fans seemed to welcome it.

Speaking of County when we went there last year with 3,000 fans and County had lost 10 in a row. 0-0 and one of the worst games of football i've ever seen.

There's rumours that some foreign investor is in negotiations to purchase 83% of their club apparently, for a knockdown price of what Allen was initially wanting.
He's probably desperate to sell because he's propping them up on a monthly basis with his own money.

Whoever this potential investor is, he must be absolutely mental to even be thinking about it, unless he's insanely rich and money is no object.

What you mean like JR when he took over us Rob?
Scenarios are not a million miles away, we needed a lot of cash and quickly or the future was at best not bright, and at worst...well who knows, but the Stockports and Darlingtons are two cases in point.

We were nowhere near the level of debt that they owe to Dave Allen.
Their debt to the council alone is over a million I believe.
When you consider what JR has had to pay for Field Mill (in installments too, not up front) it's peanuts in comparison.

Even still, JR and CR have managed the club so that it wasn't making monumental losses. Their top table have been somehow selling off a pool of talented players, whilst having healthy attendances, yet still find themselves financially screwed. Nobody knows how either so something is not right. One bloke questioned it and the Spireites sent the heavies round to threaten him and his family.
So I would like to say we are some way off of being that bad.

There is no debt to the council. Allen paid it off.

Also that second bit isn't true. Your comment suggests it was something to do with Allen or Carson which it absolutely was not.

And believe me if it was I wouldn't be defending them.

It turns out our decline that lead to us dropping out of the league was because Chesterfield beat us in the play-offs in 94/95. I think Hewitt needs a change of medication. Here was me thinking it was Haslam who did it.

If that performance doesn't ensure we sell out against our bottom of the league friends on Saturday nothing will.

Prediction points

Sheep worriers looking at their games I can see them picking up only 1 point in their total.January fixtures overall end of the season finishing on 43 points.

Still hoping it's our game at the prozac that sends them down.

There's a thread on Mansfield town followers about a young 12 year old Chesterfield fan who passed away. And how it would be good to applaud in the 12th minute

Is the club planning on doing this?

Whereas matt salmon was a club employee if county fan do that for us we should do the same for Chesterfield.

It's about more than football sometimes

Of course it is Adam, a 12 year old who loves his team as we do...the world has too much hate. Imagine how if it was your lad, (heaven forbid) and the roles were reversed , and 6000 Spireites stood and paid tribute.
