    What a game- Barnet 2-0 down, an opposition player is sent off, and then the Bees comeback to lead 3-2 and hold the lead through nearly 11 minutes of injury time.

    We've sold out Elland Road for the first home league game since 2010. Newcastle brining 2,800, should be an unbelievable atmosphere.

    Rochdale included a five-year old who is terminally ill in their match day squad yesterday in the game in the Checkatrade Trophy. Thoughtful and the only positive part of the farce that this competition has been this season.

    League Two is ridiculous, only 5 points separate Crewe in 6th and Colchester in 22nd.

    Thought we were decent first half and just about deserved the lead but second half we just collapsed, mainly due to a shocking substitution by Danny Wilson

    Chesterfield owner, chairman and director Dave Allen resigned tonight at the clubs AGM, without telling any directors or shareholders beforehand.. very worrying times ahead, administration very likely. The vice chair even said, when asked if the club will fold, 'I don't know. I don't think so'.

    AFC Chesterfield anyone?

    Jesus! This rings a bell not too different from us! Resigned, left rudderless and finance-less until HMRC threaten liquidation and a nice Serbian gentleman steps in.

    Horrible man Dave Allen. How he has been fit to run two football clubs is a scandal.

    Dave Allen? Isn't he the guy who started suing Sheffield Wednesday fans for making perfectly innocent forum posts when he was their chairman? Didn't realise he was still in football

    Remember you warning me about him probably a few years back now! I'm grateful for him financing the new ground and seeing us win 2 league 2s and go on 2 visits to Wembley (although hard for the owner to take credit for those) but his refusal to reinvest player sales in the last two years is indefensible. Many supporters have been calling for him to go and he's given them what they wanted but he's done it seemingly without any long term plan and has basically left the club in limbo.

    Worked out well for you lot in the end though...

    From what I remember it wasn't people personally attacking the owner like when the Oyston's sued Blackpool fans, it was just people having a go at the board for some **** transfers and the team for a poor run of results. That must have been at least 10 years ago now, blimey.

    If clubs like Portsmouth and Leeds managed to stay afloat after the mess they were left in on multiple occasions, there's no way Chesterfield will go bust over what I presume is a fairly small debt. Someone will come in and sort the mess out.

    I don't know, calling us cretins, scum and venomous *****es at AGMs whilst suing us (with club money) is pretty bad :lol:. Lot of power struggles with the shareholding fans. He was part of the 10-15 years of mismanagement and did nothing to end it. Almost scuppered the saving deal with Milan M if I remember correctly. Having said that the whole board was shambles, some guy (geoff hulley?) missed an AGM as he was stuck on a B road in France :lol:

    Football clubs don't go bust as we've learnt. If the debt was owed to HMRC however... potentially liquidation instead of administration. Still sad to see it happen
