Merger would be sensible but imperative we do not allow any version of them lot to play at our ground next season.

That is the 2nd time this season we have beaten higher league opposition. This team is magnificent and that lot who are on the slide come nowhere near. People won't watch crap Simple as

Notice that C.J. of this site has been visiting The Dark{green} Side, all sorts of mayhem going on there. Considering that they are same position in the league {5th} as us it seems that is not good enough for a team of their importance in the football world. Apologies if this is in wrong thread.

They were blaming the Winsford pitch for today,s hammering as it didn,t flood, causing the game to go ahead. :silly:

At least we didn't have to travel to a different town and watch it in someone else's stadium though! Lol

Have to laugh at them in Winsford, our friend reckons they have money in the bank - more than Witton lol, I wonder if they can answer me this little question :

My mate lives in squalid little bedsit in Winsford its gone to the dogs really, He does not like it that much its soulless and has no atmosphere and needs a lot of money spending on it but its all he can afford, however quite surprisingly he has (lets be generous) £20k in the bank Think he is saving up a bedsit in Northwich !! Now the thing is my other mate lives in a Big mortgage free detached place in Wincham worth ( lets be conservative ) £3 million pound - with big grounds that a few people would like to buy now to develop! He doesnt have too much in the bank because running that big house costs quite a bit- but if you live in his bigger league ! you have to spend the big money obviously -He wants move into the bigger league. He is also due to inherit a fair chunk soon from an old land investment deal he did a few years ago now the BIG QUESTION for you all (who read this forum ) who is the richest and which would you seriously like to be !!!!

A merger between the two Vics would be sensible but I think they hate each other more than they hate Witton!!
Unless we renew the lease Vics are dead in the water and 1874 can never grow playing at Winsford so all we have to do is keep them at a distance and we have nothing to worry about as far as the greens are concerned.

V**s without a backer cannot afford to stay at the Net-Dec even if we were to allow them, realistically there only option will be to take voluntary demotion and play at a level they can afford and rent somewhere like Barnton for example. 2012 Winsford will probably stay at Barton stadium for the medium term 5 years or so maybe longer while they try to get back in the town with a low level facility, I agree we should now not let them near our stadium.

Firstly, I think we should stay out of the 1874/Vics squabbles and just deal with the issues as they arise.There is a possibility that our tenants could (it may be a slim chance, but there is one none the less) receive backing that would enable them to stay at WP. If that happens in a Rushe free environment would we turn them down? If they don't get that backing, then as CJ says, its more likely that they will take a demotion and opt to reduce their costs elsewhere in order to keep the club afloat.

Secondly, If either of those 2 options is realised, then the banners, colours, standards and history of the old Vics will stay with NVFC as its direct line of decent. The interesting question is then what that means for 1874. I think the expectation has always been that NVFC would cease to exist. If it survived, would many of the Vics fans who watch neither of the current incarnations return to watch the NVFC team? Where does that leave 1874? A new club owned by its fans with no direct links to Northwich asking Northwich Town Council to provide a home? Would the Council do the same for any other team such as the old Broken Cross that didn't have its own stadium?

I can understand why 1874 was formed and sympathised with their dilemma at the time, but with hindsight they may have hit the escape button a tad too soon. The obvious solution is a reconciliation, but after a bitter and long divorce the ill feeling between both clubs may render this impossible. The consequences could be years of falling out and back biting. Something we are best clear of. After years of being in the doldrums, there is definitely a feeling of better times ahead at WP. We need to focus on what we need to do to for ourselves, to continue to be the best for our club and enjoy what we have now. Otherwise it may just pass us by.
