Stanley

Recommended Posts

Not to mention Jack was generous enough to allow Accrington to play at Ewood during the 94-95 season! At that time they were truly a bunch of cloggers probably playing in the North Western Trains League or worse. Celebrating their centenary or something like that (even though the original club went bust) the game is on Youtube. Full strength except Shearer as well not a bunch of youth/reserves.

Maybe Dolt should remember that.

Arranged fixture with Marseille soon and won't be at Accrington's "stadium" due to pitch improvements or something. Thought news was going to say Ewood but it will be in Salford (at a rugby ground not Salford City) which is better as allowing them to play at Ewood would have annoyed me especially after insulting Jack recently.

Kee and McConville on their way out of Stanley.

Will need some masterful recruitment to keep them in League 1 now.

Where's that from?

Big increase in the playing budget for AS this season. Still 2nd lowest in the league though.

Their friendly gets a story on the BBC website. Great PR as always by Holt.

Holt is the anti-Waggott.

One is all about growing the fanbase by engaging the local community.

The other is about increasing revenue by growing commercial partnerships. And selling tickets. To the same people who always buy them.

Burmley have already overtaken us - entirely down to Venkys and their poor administrators. How long before Accy are level?

They've managed to let Burnley and Preston catch/overtake us on the pitch and at this rate it won't be long before they surpass us off it. Some people call it the circle of life, I call it incompetence and negligence. Accy will never catch us as a club but having an owner who cares and wants his club to improve is more important than writing off big losses from India every year.

Burnley already have surpassed us, one of the most valuable brands in Europe thanks to the university links.

Think I read the Price of Football twitter account the other day say they are the only club in the PL with no external debt.

All built on Sky money though. One relegation and it's all gone. In terms of infrastructure, facilities, profile a long way to go.

And major honours won, of course. Our 10 (ten) to their paltry 3 (three ffs) and that ain’t gonna change.

Regardless of what division we’re in and what division they’re in they will always live in our shadow.
