Own Goal

What is going on at Crawley Town FC?

On the way home from the station this evening I saw all the lights on at the Broadfield stadium and wondered what was going on. Got home and put the South-East news on the TV and there was a bloke broadcasting live from the stadium.

This time last year we were second in the Conference. Under the new owners there are huge New Years parties, the club house has been turned into a plush Irish theme bar with live music and lap-dancing nights, but the entire playing staff has been put on half wages and the transfer list. And we are propping up the table.

Along the way the new owner has had to flog off his Bentley and has to make do with his Ferrari. Poor man.

    I always wondered whether the £2M that the club was bought for was ‘real’ or not. I strongly suspect that it was all based on credit, and on the viability of the SA Group’s bars and restuarants, and on the expectation of making a profit from the club. With poorer results than expected, I suppose they are planning to cut their losses in case of relegation.

    Even John Maggs was better than this shower

    Not to mention the tickets which cost more than a Bundesliga game and shirts which cost more than premier league shirts.

    Is it too late to get Vines back there to rescue the season?
