The "Mansfield" Chad

Postby Beano » Fri Mar 17, 2017 9:56 am

I see this embarrassingly poorly written ad riddled bottom trumpet of a rag is now asking Spireites to "tweet in their favourite Chesterfield goal"

What next, radio Mansfield reporting on Fores..................

Hang on a minute :shock: :shock: :shock:

East Midland Today getting our fixtures wrong and not showing goals.
Radio Florist spending more time on our poor the region's teams are then remembering we're up in contention.

Our local media sucks.
Shame Clownty look like they will survive as then EMT & Radio Florist wouldn't feature them at all like they didn't for us.

Don't be so daft. If County were in the Methodist League, they would get better coverage than us.

Too true, Marty told me earlier this season even if Clownty went down they'd have (free) 95.5fm, worldwide (free) internet commo, DAB Digital (free) commo and Pies Player commo and we'd have to make do with updates into their big game away to North Ferriby. Sickening thought really, and then there's 1.023 who have paid the club for broadcast rights who chose not to do it so they can concentrate on Florist. Sad sad times. Heaven help us if we ever went down to the Conf again, we'd be lucky to get a mention at full time.

Yes I'm still trying to save up to be able to afford Stagsplayer but I've spent some of the money on seed potatoes for t'garden.

I've never quite got this. I listen to their coverage on the way to the match on Saturday and after the match and there's always Stags team news and interviews, with little mention of Forest.

Spiro, I was told not long ago that if County went down, because that would put County free to air on the internet, Radio Nottm would free up a frequency for Mansfield commentary, if they could get the rights.

Looks as though that's all gone up in smoke looking at the table, a couple more wins'll more than likely see County safe.

The Chad's days are numbered, no longer a local rag but a North Botts and Derbys paper.

Circulation dropping like a stone.

I wonder why?

Used to have a big office and press on Newgate Lane and a shop in town, now they are reduced to a pokey little office on the Sherwood Oaks business park. All the best journalists have gone and we are left with that Andy Done Johnson clown, a Corbynite lefty and middle-class apologist.

Fell sorry for John Lomas, a good journalist working for an awful paper.

I feel for him too, does a brilliant job for us but gets slated because of the bigwigs at JP who don't know how to run a LOCAL newspaper properly

It's not just the Chad. All weekly papers are on a fast-track to oblivion. Is just that Johnston Press have more weekly papers than any other publisher. JP has been hell-bent on yielding the sort of profit that they have had in the boom years even though the market is collapsing.

They can only do this by rampant cost savings and de-localising the products. They are running out of areas to save money in their printed division and they have woefully under-exploited the digital market. In fact, their digital activity has done more to damage their printed products than anything else.

The Chad is still a weekly purchase for a lot of older readers but, as they dwindle in number, so does the Chad's circulation. Younger readers are not given any real reason to become new readers.

It's a real shame. I used to work for the Chad, but it's not worthy of my quid nowadays.

I used to get really excited that it was 'Chad day' (used to be a Thursday) so I could read every single word on the super Stags. Now I don't even bother with it. I just read everything on line instead. The only time I really have a look at it is when I'm at the mother in laws & she has it passed on from her neighbour!

I have a look at Chad just to make sure I am not in the obituaries column.
We might win against Accrington next time.

They should, imagine if we made the play offs we'd have to make do with updates into some Notts Cricket game on t'Beeb and reports sandwiched in between 'ARDWICK'S' ads on 10.32.
