    Because of kewell? He may not have bucketloads of experience as a manager but he's far from being the only one in league 2. There's mark bonner for a start, our manager who's only 34 or thereabouts.

    They do have that feel of a traditional club who are just in a terminal decline that's destined to end up in non league at some point. When I was growing up they tended to yo yo between League One and Championship and even got in the Premier League at one point. And when in League One they were usually one of the better teams and amongst the favourites to go up. Over the last 20 years they've just declined and declined and just seem so stale.

    I think it's difficult for the Greater Manchester clubs to reinvigorate themselves in the shadow of the big two. Stockport went all the way down a few years ago, Bury went bust, Oldham seem to be following the same path sadly.

    There's always that traditional league club that are on a decline that you know will end up in non-league football, mostly due to poor ownership and/or bad decisions.

    Oldham are that one club right now.

    Great to have another Yorkshire club in the football league :clap: congrats to Harrogate

    A lad that was at the same secondary school as me has been out on loan at Stevenage so will be keeping an eye on their results to see if Harrogate bring him back into the fold. My old form teacher played for them too!

    Thats what happen when you have owners who dont understand football. We were not far from a sad demise until recently.

    Harrogate's a lovely place, shame it's another bankrolled vanity project coming up. Especially in the current climate I'd install them, alongside Salford and FGR, as promotion favourites.

    Well done Harrogate. Thrilled to see them in the Football League!
    ...though a bit depressing to think we are now only one division above them...

    Shame for Notts County, but with covid causing problems for non-league clubs you expect them to be up there next season.

    Our venerable owner has claimed a new manager will be appointed this week. He had a five man shortlist of which two are known to have been interviewed, Darren Currie the Barnet manager and our current reserves boss Craig Fagan. I'd be happy with either, but knowing Ron he'll suddenly announce someone you never expect, for instance ex-Brescia boss Fabio Grosso confirmed he'd applied and spoken to the club, I mean, what!

    Ron is also claiming we can sign players, even though the EFL say we are under an embargo, he reckons it's nonsense and we can do what we like.

    Harrogate Town will begin their first season in the EFL by groundsharing with Doncaster Rovers.
