Another long trip for us tonight as we go to Gateshead in the North East. They are a good team who will be a tricky opponent, however we played well on Saturday so will have the momentum. Let's hope we can pick up some points. Come On You Blues!
Score: Gateshead 1-2 Chester FC (Akintunde, Hannah)
Attendance: 756 (102 Chester)
COYB!

Personally never expected a thing tonight. We will see the fruits of Jon Mcarthys labour for a good while yet.

Long hard season coming up.

The corner from which the losing goal was scored was needlessly conceded by Andy Halls, who according to my spy at the game is s**te.

Sounded a terrible goal all round. Pointless corner conceded and then fumbled into his own net by the keeper.

Feel for the players after that comeback, and certainly the fans that went, but you can't concede last minute goals as often as we do and keep calling it bad luck.

We had too many s**te players in defence last season and its already clear that we still do . Ultimately ,the directors are responsible . Halifax are unlikely to win this league but they are up there with probably a lower budget (yes,theres that word again ) than us . I hope lots of difficult questions get asked on thursday . Maybe they will cancel the meeting again .

Completely gutted. We more than deserved a draw tonight and it seemed as if we played really well. In typical Chester fashion through, we concede just before half time, then make a mistake for Gateshead to score a last-gasp winner. Hats off to everyone who travelled up tonight. Must feel ridiculously dejected. Typical Chester, aye!

Gateshead 3-2 Chester
a heartless ground in front of a ridiculous crowd of just 500 home fans makes you wonder is it true that we have one of the lowest budgets in the league ? I find it hard to believe that 23 other clubs in our league are funded by millionaire businessmen, and if you believe they are, I would ask where are all the Chester Millionaires ? why have we never had a selfless millionaire pumping money into the club for the love of Chester ? The truth is these people are few and far between and more often than not there comes a time when they want something back. Is winning more important than being in charge of your own destiny ? For me being fan owned is the best thing that ever Happened to Chester and there is no turning back.
The Game; we started well playing some nice football, knocking the ball around, Mahon up to his old tricks, we were the better team, unfortunately our loanee right back was not having such a good game, kept giving the ball away, which ultimately led to the corner and the first goal for them. An absolute gift. H-t 1-0 down. 2nd half begins we are on the attack Mahon needlessly gives the ball away a couple of half hearted tackles up the other end and they score 2-0. So unfair, Chester just did not deserve the score line. Heads went down and we had a period of Gateshead domination until Big Harry come on, the tide was turning and deservedly we were back in the game at 2-2. Now we are trying to win the game. A long ball is sent up to big Harry who unselfishly nods it down to Raging Ross, he must be an inch away from scoring but the gaolie manages to smoother the ball. Gets up hoofs it downfield, all our centre half has to do is let the ball run through to our keeper, instead he tries to hoof it back, miss cues the ball which spins off to the corner flag and unbelievably goes out for a Gateshead corner. The corner is gifted straight into our keepers hands, no its not its in the back of the net. For the second time this season our loannee keeper has fluffed the ball costing us Points, which is sort of an irony, as it is my belief that Mccarthy contributed to his own downfall by not using the loan market when we clearly needed to get players in, and here we are losing the game due to contributions by our two loan players.
A couple of weeks ago people were calling for the managers head saying we were un-entertaining, watching Chester play last night was like watching an Alan Bleasdale Play, one minute your happy then your down crying and distraught then your up laughing and joyous then finally there's a dramatic ending a kick in the teeth but it could have been a lives happily ever after. What a game, and was the 65 of us that travelled entertained ?
dead right we were

Before he handed over control to the Bennetts last year, Graham Wood the previous owner was putting over £500k a year of his own money into the club to keep it afloat. Your next opponents money man goes by the name of Trevor Parmenter.
