Oh dear another game called off for the Plastics at Winsford, will they ever finish the season - still if you pay for rubbish you generally get rubbish !!!
You could say their ground is really a bit of a " swamp" lol, I have been up at Witton today working and the pitch is perfectly playable UTA

Well they seem dependent upon us and our fine stadium to play their games especially big ones - now that option has gone they will have to stick to the hovel at Winsford, so they have made a few pennies from the little run in the Dunces cup but are years away from a ground in Northwich, they even suggested Barnton as a ground-share so the big time lol
They will struggle in the league now and remain in the dog and duck league again So much for being a "big club" they are a small club made up of supporters who switch club at a whim with small minds that are so so jealous and resentful of us or any thing the proper V**S do its so sad for them. UTA

Have to laugh at the un-educated plastics, they think because they find our ground has a book value of £750k on the balance sheet that is what it is worth-ignorance is bliss ! So just for them :
The difference between book value and market value is: the book value of an asset is its original purchase cost, adjusted for any subsequent changes, such as for impairment or depreciation. Market value is the price that could be obtained by selling an asset on a competitive, open market.

Housing is still planned around our ground, if we were ever to sell for housing the market value would be something like £3-4 millions depending on the market conditions at the time but only if we wanted to sell, which currently we do not.

And TB apparently only hates us because of our association with A proven drug dealer, well again when we started our deal with Rushe he was not known as a drug dealer, when he was charged we tried to end the deal but it was too late to cancel the deal due to a legal threat that could have seriously damaged our club! As soon as we practically could we cancelled the deal.
The current planned 2 year deal is with a club that is nothing to do with Rushe and is converting to fan owned. I take it you have no objection to that so again our deal with them is above board and strIctly legal so no reason to hate us TB but of course that may not suit your agenda. UTA

Please read the posts on the 1874 forum with more care - it clearly states that 750 is the NBV, and subsequent posts relate this to the putative market value and raise issues which will affect this.

Again, a case perhaps of selective reading and maybe even dubious interpretation of the facts staring everyone in the face.
1) nothing to do with Rushe? - directly maybe, but these are the people who stood by him to the bitter end and refused to condemn any of his actions. Might make you think about how they might approach their business dealings. Or maybe not, up to you.
2) converting to fan owned? - according to them they have done that, but you try finding the relevant documentation, or even the official confirmation of this on their website. Or try asking Supporters' Direct what they think.
3) above board? - from Witton's point of view entirely, and I don't think anyone is dusputing that. Whether it is so for the other party/parties to the agreement is more open to question. Try asking Barnton.

Anyway, that's enough homework for you to be doing for the time being. When you've done it, you might like to turn your thoughts to "how to balance a budget"

Will they finish the season ? maybe not based on the pictures on Social media of the pitch at Winsford. Also hearing rumours of them and an agreed 5 year deal to ground-share with Winsford and that they will invest money in the pitch and ground to stay there ! I bet they are regretting stalling on a ground-share with Us and allowing V**s to get in first.
