Re: The Positivity Thread

Some of you might have already heard my roots as a Dagger on the podcast but I’ll do it again. First come over Dagenham for a Capital League match against Brentwood in the 84/85 season. It was a freezing cold night on a pitch that you could only describe as mud. The match finished in a 5-2 defeat b...

Re: Glyn Hopkin is selling his shares for £1

So to more important matters. Some Yanks, who we know absolutely nothing about, have offered to 'invest' in the club. The big question for me is why? They won't ever see a fiscal return on their investment so it isn't to make money. So it is an ego trip or we are a plaything for them. That's fair en...

Re: Some good news at last

Do we know anything about these people ie. why would someone from the USA want to 'invest' in the Daggers. I'm suspicious......proceed with caution.

Re: Barnet on Monday / Random thoughts

In two words Rampant Duke NO CHANCE. One thing leads,to the other. Last thing i wanted to do yesterday waa stay around as the whole match day experiance is becoming a chore that has to be endured as my heart is currently bigger then my brain I know what you mean Sussex. I was really looking forward...

Re: Barnet on Monday / Random thoughts

The football was frustrating yesterday but for me the experience in the upstairs bar afterwards was even more depressing. Only a couple of years ago that place was rammed after every game - so much so that it often would be easier to get a drink downstairs and come back up. Yesterday there were a ha...

Re: Cheek gone??

Yep - looks that way. I think he was set for a good season for us. Another one bites the dust. Not sure how I feel about his season but we will know a bit more at 4.45 on Saturday.

It doesn't seem fair for me to participate in this conversation. Seeing as I am in the KNOW.

Can't decide whether to wear a red or blue dress or the club shirt when the announcement is made. :whistle:
I think that this is what is commonly known as a 'humblebrag' :grin:

Re: Tonights meeting

Strikes me some people went along hoping or awaited news hoping to hear two people had gone, rather than being concerned about the way forward?? I am not sure why people are totally fed up with this?? People wanted a club for next season?? We have one. People hoped it might be in the Conference?? W...

Re: Who is still a dagger ?

Putting the season ticket price back up to a sensible level is a good idea. The £199 season tickets were there as a loss leader to encourage loads more people to buy them, like Bradford City and Huddersfield have done in the past, but sadly it didn't work for us and everyone who would have got one a...

Re: Any news ??

Bit harsh to dig out John Still here. I wasn't there tonight so I could be very wrong but I imagine the conversation was - we can't afford you any more so you'll need to take a pay cut or resign. Still took option 2. Option 3 would have been Still insisting on getting fully paid out on his contract ...

Re: Is Saturday our last home game

If players start suing the club for breach of contract then maybe that's when the club would have to fold and come back as a different entity. In the meantime surely you negotiate an exit strategy for each player which suits both parties? The football club is a business and when businesses run out o...

Re: Is Saturday our last home game

I still don't understand why we don't just tell the players who have contracts with us that they are not worth the paper they are written on if the club go bust in the summer so they can leave of their own accord and find new clubs in June and we will replace them with a part time/completely amateur...
