Wot no Eddie and the Hot Rods ?.....
A really disappointing performance on Saturday but I will still be there again on Tuesday.....and forever.
But will be there tomorrow evening, keeping the faith! Up the Boro' !
It's in the blood!
Manager departs - more changes on "The Way Forward"!!!
I'm not a huge follower- and a lot of you will know more than me.
But it seems to me there's a change in manager and a huge change in players every season
How is the club ever meant to settle?? how is the "board" behind the scenes?? are they part of the problem- or are they the solution? - bad times for the rangers but at least it's still there so there's that.
Last season we finished bottom of the league so there was a need this season for a new manager and to build a better squad. Some of last seasons squad have remained.
In preseason things were looking very good, the team assembled by the new manager was playing well and we were winning games, however we've not been able to do it in the league. 7 games in, no league wins and only 1 goal scored by our own player. I don't think this team is too far away from being a good team, however we desperately need an experienced striker.
The last few management appointments have not gone well. The directors need to get the next one right or else fans may start to ask serious questions about whether we've got the right people in charge.
Is it too late to ask Collymore to come back?
Is Martin Chivers available?.....
Let the Bull Loose!
Oh we did let the Bull lose.
So as not to hijack the Stafford Riverlink thread any further, I'll respond here.
It's been great to see some of the improvements done in the last few years (Chairman's suite, Shed End, car park resurfacing).
What sort of realistic ground improvements are Stafford Rangers looking at next?
There are a number of projects that I would like to see done. In no particular order:
Reterrace the social club end
Update the office reception area
Renovate the home and away changing rooms
Convert the Portacabin in the car park to a hospitality / marketing suite.
New players tunnel
As well as the above, work has started on building a new cantilever stand on the social club end. A full suite of structural drawings have been prepared and some fundraising has taken place.
As well as the projects you mentioned, I and a few fans have also renovated the press box and created a new fans bar under the main stand. I was one of the fans that worked on bringing back the shed end as well.

The need for community and supporting each other raises its head again.
If you have a club or association and need to raise revenue please consider having a look at the lottery partnership where your organisation could earn 50% of what you pay in each month. Sign a number of people up under your group, get your cause registered and get the commission back periodically.
Or you could just join as an individual for the sake of £5 a month and have the chance of winning up to £500!
All that while helping raise funds for the infrastructure of a community club.
