Just looked at what investment they've had and how the current owners came to be..... very interesting piece on their official site from April 2022 following the takeover.....

"WAGMI United also pledged a new era of unprecedented transparency and accountability to Crawley Town Football Club supporters and the Crawley community. With Johnson and Smith assuming roles as club directors, they plan to allow the fans to decide whether or not they keep those roles for the following season if the team does not achieve its goal: earning promotion to League One by the end of their second season in charge.

"If we're trying to build a community-club, and we are, then we have to build in mechanisms to hold ourselves accountable,"  said Eben Smith, WAGMI United co-founder. "So if Crawley Town Football Club doesn't get promoted to League One by the end of our second season, which we think is about 50/50, then we under-performed. If we underperform, Crawley Town fans should get to vote on who the next directors of the club are. We might run for reelection because it was clearly all Preston's fault, but we don’t just get to hold the fanbase hostage because our dad invented Cablevision."


So they achieved their goals....and the directors kept their jobs as a result!!

Crawley lost just short of £4 million in year ended June 30th 2023 (the movement on the Profit & Loss account in the Balance Sheet). That's some investment they've made there.

I only watched the last half an hour plus stoppage time, but Southampton had gone full-Colin!

I bet the Windmill in Kingsthorpe aint a happy place at the moment.
Maybe Calderwood knows a few young strikers that need our tuition?

Well done Southampton thought you deserved it. Leeds only turned up for the first 10 minutes of each half, although James was unlucky with the shot that hit the bar. The turn out was impressive at just under 86K with both teams about the same at just under the 40K mark according to the commentators, so where did the other 6K come from? It means of course that neither team beat the mighty Cobblers attendance v Grimsby at 41K, although they weren't particularly mighty that day.

That's the last meaningful league game now until August, time to get more into the cricket. Come on Northants.

When Akenfenwa  scored that famous winner against Leeds, was no fan of Leed but when Bayo scored that  goal  Bayo was my hero for life! I never hated Leeds  or  Posh for that  matter. Just  beating them was sufficient.  Don’t understand why you want to hate  Leeds when we have beaten them twice!

I was there at the County Ground in 1966 when we beat Leeds 2 - 1 when we were both in Division 1. Leeds came second that season behind Liverpool and their players were all internationals - all British too.

It was a wonderful moment especially as we had lost the game at Elland Road 6 - 1.

That Goal by Bayo !  He just bulldozed thru’their defence  and goal keeper too ! His momentum scored the goal as I think their goalie partly saved it and it only just crossed the line! As for the 1966 game can always remember Graham Moore’s tackle to send Bremner flying horizontal thru’ the air !

Bayo didn't play when we beat them 2-1. He scored the equaliser the previous season when we drew 1-1.

Graham Moore was a great player and I thought we were lucky to sign him from Man U. My youngest daughters father in law used to play alongside him at Cardiff before he joined Man U.

Do you not remember being relegated by them at Elland Road in 2009?

It's also a bit of the local rivalry thing when there are those round here, who should by rights be supporting Bradford, but go for the "big" club instead.

In the 1966 game the 3 goals came in a 5 minute spell early in the game, Barry Lines 11 mins, George Hudson 13 mins and O'Grady replied 16 mins, the crowd was 21,548.

We have quite a few of those in Northampton as well... Sad

Was at Elland Road in 2009 and still can't believe how poorly we played for a team that needed a result.

I wasn't sure which side of the border he came from but 10 British isn't bad.
