For some individuals who are not interested in Notts or Chesterfield there are very long threads/pages devoted to these clubs 129 & 244 ?

The Northampton fans site was in admiration for having two long threads about Clownty & the Spireites. They were envious that they had no local clubs to dislike!

Why Red in your username, have you got divided loyalties? and can you be a Spire lite these days?
Is that term for people who just attend the odd match or two per season, the one cal supporter type?

Funny enough we do not have threads about Wycombe Wanderers or Tranmere Rovers etc for obvious reasons but with the news being full of doom and gloom over the past year or so these threads bring a bit of light relief.

Neither ST4GS, Just someone who enjoys local soccer, first saw Mansfield early 70's and enjoyed Wembley with them, personally I will be happy if Mansfield, Notts & Chesterfield are back in the same league, EFL, as it can only be good for local soccer plus the rivalry, lets be honest cant see any of the three making the championship, to expensive and not big enough fan base, don't be fooled by my name as I don't normally enter in to "football forums" but couldn't resist the irony with some of the comments, anyway best of luck to the Stags for rest of season

Wow, you are a rare breed (old school type).
20 Years or so ago I bumped into an old fellow in his late seventies maybe who used to go to the Stags home games one week and Chesterfield the next (the fixtures years ago always seemed to permit that). You could tell he just loved his football and did not have a bias or negative bone in his body, this attitude probably describes many of our parents or grandparents when we think back who went to the game for pure enjoyment, did not get involved with the club or its politics on a day to day basis (probably due to lack of news or social media), and did not worry too much about the league tables and threat of extinction etc.
If you went to Wembley just for the football as a neutral then how the hell did you enjoy that game??? (1987 was a poor game, 2011 was probably the worst game in living memory with the Cardiff play off final in 2004 a close second).
Stags games at big neutral venues have been dire but I would love to live those three days over again with the anticipation intact.

Ahh I see your confusion, we like to keep things tidy here, just 1 thread for each of our local non league neighbours. This saves having to post a new thread every time something funny happens to them (can you imagine the mess if not?)

As you can see the threads have been running a long time, so long ago The Cheats were a League 1 team in fact :lol:

You are also confusing “interested” with “laughing at”

My Dad was like that. Living in Shirebrook it was Stags one Saturday, Spireites the next. The first match he took me to when I was aware of what was going on was Stags v. Accrington, and I stuck with Stags ever after. I wonder.... if the first match he’d taken me to had been a Spirites’ game, I suspect I’d have ended up a lifelong Spireites fan. That is a horrific thought.

My dad used to watch Stags reserves if the first team were away. And my granddad used to sometimes go to Spireites or Rotherham. His family originally moved from the Burton area in the 30s so work in the pits so they were Derby fans before Stags and used to go back and watch them too.

Just looking on their forum and under post “season over” there is a picture showing the pitch which looks like it has been dug up ready for re-laying.

Taken from the bed wetters site . it has still not sunk in that they are only a big fish in a very small pool


You talk about "re-election". If it's the EFL, wouldn't they go for Notts? On the basis we took the last relegation spot in the last full season and we also will take more fans to games than Barrow. From a clubs view, they'd surely prefer Notts?

Ideally this season needs to be completed otherwise promotion and relegation could well be settled in the courts.
Partick Thistle are probably going down that route after Dundee's U-turn.

To prevent litigation issues it might be an idea to finish this season come what may even if it takes until December, then have a regionalised North / South section for each league (maybe 10,11 or for this example 12 teams per section, with 22 games and if time permits have each division split into two like Scotland used to do with all clubs involved in either promotion or relegation after game 22, this could increase games/revenue to either 27 or 32 depending on when the season gets underway, promote the top two and relegate the bottom two). Then Start 2021-22 from August as normal.

Just promote Barrow. The EFL have a vacancy & on PPG ratios Barrow win the Conference by about 10 points.

Non league is going to have to restructure anyway, about a dozen clubs have resigned already.

The next stage of non-league restructuring has been postponed until the end of the 20-21 season now.
