  1. It lays bare the extent to which we are reliant upon the Shanahans. The company is worth minus £1,878,392, i.e. if everything was sold and they tried to repay what was owed we would be short by that amount. Without their support we would be bust and we exist solely due to the money they have pumped in. They have also stated in these accounts they will be putting more in this year. Truly a labour of love for which we should all be grateful.
  2. I do not know but suspect it would be signing on fees for players. If someone was signed on a two year contract then the signing on fee paid to him would be spread over those two years. A similar process would happen if we actually did pay a transfer fee, the amount would be spread over the length of the contract.
  3. Standard stuff. They have provided the information required to fulfill their legal responsibilities. It would be a very unusual company that issued further information than that required.
  4. My understanding of this model of management is that the structure and playing style throughout the club remains constant although the personnel can change within it. If it does not work with DC then he can be replaced but the new person will have to buy in to our way of playing. That then gives a level of consistency rather than disruption every time a new manager is appointed, bringing in new players to suit his preferred system. The DoF seems to have far greater longevity and maybe the easier ride.
  5. My Morecambe supporting friends were big fans of Mills. It just did not work out with us.
  6. We are bringing players in from a level higher than the one at which we currently play. And some of those players are by no means sure to be in our starting eleven. What on earth is there not to like about our recruitment?
  7. Totally random but I keep smiling at the fact 3 former Everton managers are now in charge at Barcelona, Real Madrid and the top ranked international side in the world. And they sacked two of them.
  8. You missed out Scunthorpe. What a place.
  9. No, Camus was always in goal for the Philosopher's XI.
  10. I live around 100 miles away. I have not had a season ticket for many years but watch maybe 15 games at Vale Park each year. I go to away games in the north of England, maybe 10 more games. With ifollow I paid for every game this season bar Carlisle away. Given that Vale received a percentage of the money I paid for away games (after the first 450 subscribers per game I think) Vale may even have received more from me this year than a normal year. It would be close and if they raised the price closer to that paid when I attend they would definitely make more. And I could watch more games rather than following the score updates on the BBC because the Radio Stoke commentary is blocked as I live too far away.
  11. A strange survey. Question 1 can only be answered yes or no. I never got that far. My answer would be "I do not know. I would have to think about that. What are the arguments one way or the other?"
  12. Morecambe run on to Queen. I hate Queen.
  13. My most vivid memory is of bursting out laughing when the ball stopped in the puddle.
  14. Presumably Brexit means we can no longer go shopping on the Continent as Mr Rudge occasionally did? It is not a subject I have heard mentioned anywhere.
  15. When we played Scunthorpe away a couple of years ago losing 2-1, I thought their numbers 10, 20 and 30 operating behind Novak as the front man were superb. Van Veen, Eisa and Gillead. All three were offered new contracts but turned them down and are available.
