In a nutshell, we've recovered well from the financial downturn caused by
another relegation, and there seems to reason to change course - whether that
"vision" is shared with the current manager remains to be seen....

we're not yet safe from relegation with four games remaining.

final push for
to gatecrash the National League North playoffs on Friday are Blyth Spartans,
who face a pivotal home game with Guiseley (3pm).
The green and whites looked to have missed out on any chance of promotion
following a lean spell in early 2019, but a run of four victories in April
have left them just three points shy off the playoffs.
Another maximum point return at Croft Park on Friday afternoon would put Alun
Armstrong's side level on points with seventh-placed AFC Telford - who are
away to Hereford on Saturday.

What's this all about then?
for a rambling explanation of sorts....
This Day in History
Born Or Died:
1984 Death of Stan Barber, 75.
1987 Danny Guthrie born, Shrewsbury.
Midfielder who began his playing career as a youngster at
Manchester United's Academy, before switching to Liverpool when 16.
His senior debut was as substitute for the Reds in a 4-3 home win over Reading
in the League Cup in October 2006, with a first outing in the Premier League a
February 2007 saw Danny appear off the bench in a 2-1 loss to United at SJP -
his seventh and final senior game for Liverpool.
Guthrie then moved to Southampton on loan for a 12 game stint which ended when
the Saints were eliminated in the Championship playoff semi-finals by Derby
The following season saw him loaned out to Bolton, with his 35 appearances for
the Trotters including a first career goal, away to Fulham in the League Cup on
Guthrie was part of the Bolton side who achieved a 0-0 draw on Tyneside in
January 2008, slightly spoiling Kevin Keegan's return as Newcastle manager.
Returning to Anfield, Guthrie agreed to join Newcastle in July 2008 at a
claimed cost of £2.5m, signing a four year deal.
A first outing came in pre-season against Hartlepool, when Danny arrived as a
half time substitute and created a goal for Damien Duff before netting himself,
just eight minutes after taking to the field.
Marking a scoring home debut against PSV Eindhoven, Guthrie then debuted
alongside fellow new boys Fabricio Coloccini and Jonas Gutierrez in a 1-1 draw
at Old Trafford.
However, his first setback as a Magpie came in the infamous Hull City home game
that was accompanied by fan protest both inside and outside SJP following KK's
Guthrie was deservedly dismissed in the final minute after a terrible lunge on
Craig Fagan that left the Tigers player with a broken leg.
Returning to a side by then "managed" by Joe Kinnear, Guthrie
featured in a 2-2 draw at Everton and scored in successive away games at Pompey
An injury at Blackburn in January 2009 put him out for three months, with a
first team comeback in the home game against Chelsea coinciding with the
installation of Alan Shearer as Newcastle manager.
The 2009/10 Championship season was a good one for Danny and his displays were
instrumental in returning United to the Premier League at the first time of
asking - especially when occupying his favoured central role, rather than on
the right wing.
Back in the top-flight though, a knee injury meant that Guthrie's first
competitive game of the season didn't come until October.
A crucial error in the West Bromwich Albion defeat in December
2010 cost a goal and triggered Chris Hughton's exit, with Alan Pardew taking
seven games to pick Danny for the 1-1 draw at the mackems.
Amid talk of a loan move to Nottingham Forest, hamstring
problems again sidelined Guthrie, before a recall came when deputising for the
suspended Cheick Tiote.
That pattern continued in 2011/12 but with Tiote injured and on African Nations
Cup duties, Guthrie played 19 times, scoring a belter at Fulham and also
notching at Blackburn Rovers in a League Cup tie.
Making his final United appearance in the 2-0 home win over Liverpool in April
2012, Guthrie became a free agent soon after, hitting the headlines with a
wedding at Allerton Castle in Yorkshire attended by family, friends and the
Joining Reading on a three-year deal ahead of the 2012/13 season, the final
months of his time at the Madejski Stadium were spent on loan at Fulham.
However no permanent contract offer was forthcoming from the Cottagers and
Danny joined Blackburn Rovers on a free ahead of the 2015/16 campaign.
Following two seasons at Ewood Park, he found himself without a club once again
and tried to maintain some fitness by playing for amateur side Oakengates
Athletic near to his native Shrewsbury.
January 2018 then brought news of a move to Indonesian side Mitra Kukar.
