How and why can you write that? Is it because of what you have been told about the former's contract (and can you actually believe that?) or through other sources of information? It is difficult for me to believe McCarthy has been given such a watertight "unbreakable" contract for two more years without a get-out clause for CFU if things go very wrong as they have. If however you are correct then who were the Chairman and Board members at the time and that allowed such a contract to occur and who were the CFU's lawyers who prepared the contract papers. We ought to know this.

The club has contracted over the 4 years we've been in the Conference/National League and it's been an annual struggle with little respite. If we are going to be a club that find a natural level at Step 6, then so be it, but the board and manager need to cut the crap. We fans are not idiots. Watching Chester FC since end of November has been purgatory.

It's turning in to a circus one more after so much promise earlier in the season, how can a team that was competing albeit punching above its weight but still giving the bigger so called sides a run for there money and, all of a sudden capitulation!!! It's ok defending your players for so long but the time has to come for someone to take responsibility for a second half of the season shambles that people have paid hard earned money to watch!! crying.gif

Watching Chester FC since end of November has been purgatory.


Agree, the club is slowly dying. I have posted this on the other DC too:

When CFC reformed as a fan owned club, it came across as both a novel and inclusive idea, it was lead by a board full of energy and ambition to get the club back to its former level as fast as possible.

The city has traditionally supported a 4th division, now L2 club, with better periods playing in D3/L1 and poorer times at level 5/NL/Conf, so anything below that level is not sustainable. All went well until we got back to level 5. Since them, or more precisely since the 1st chairman was replaced, a culture of caution, of hold onto what we have, and take no risks has taken over.

There have been positive developments such as building a very good youth set up, and the clubs finances are well in the black, BUT every season we are marketing season tickets with wholly unattractive sales talk, a metaphor could be; if the club were a car the sales blurb would state..Its small, slow, costs about the same as other cars, and in a drag race we think it would avoid finishing last.. In short we would be bust!

What we need is positivity, ambition, action taken to take the club full time club, and NOW before ever smaller crowds and the oblivion of regional football make any possibility of full time ambitions a lost dream. We need to be stretching every sinew to compete at the top end of the league with a target of a play off spot at the minimum. I hate to say it but that is what the goats do, yes they may be deluded in their big club boasts, but its makes the club look ambitious, its sells HOPE and ambition to the supporters, AND it seems to work, at least as a sales pitch for season ticket sales in enthusing the fan base.

I will no doubt need a tin hat for posting this, I can see the ‘we can’t afford a full time club, it gambles with the clubs future’ etc Rubbish!!!! What gambles with the clubs future is unattractive, uninspiring, unambitious, over cautious, we are confident of 52 points and avoiding relegation sales pitch every season, which will almost certainly end in tears, not this season, maybe not next, but eventually we WILL get relegated and there is not a chance in hell that most of the fan base will watch football at that level, and in a city that is mad for football..In Liverpool and Manchester already, new fans will be as rare as hens’ teeth.

Season ticket sales will drop and gates will fall and fall and fall and no amount of even mid table finishes and small profits will change that, until we enthuse the football fans of this area with AMBITION, not words, but ACTION. We can’t compete as a part time club FULL STOP, go full time or give up! Macclesfield get lower gates and are full time, AND they compete every year in or around the play off shake up.

For the pessimists we can

A. 99% certain – Stay part time and over cautious, lose support, eventually get relegated, and die a slow and prolonged death

B. Show ambition, enthuse supporters with Hope, Go FULL TIME, aim high, and yes possibly fail..But how would you rather die, in a blazing supercar, or on a trolley in hospital grey with tubes in every orifice?
