If this season is to go beyond 46 games then games like today's are opportunities that we have to take. So it was good to see the team get hime with a dominant display, albeit with a bit of a wobble at the end.

The pitch was very poor and it was clear neither side trusted it much. So we got quite a bit of aerial ping-pong throughout as both sides tried to negate it. That made for a scrappy affair at times, but it was clear when football was being played that we were by far the better side. Our three fluent moves of the first half saw Samuel score a lovely goal, and then Cullen clip the bar from range before hitting the outside of the post.

The second goal stemmed from a real piece of quality passing and was confidently dispatched from the spot by Cullen (ignore Flynn, it was a clear penalty).

After that we dozed off a bit, they got a terrible goal and then threw the kitchen sink at us late on. Lyness had to make one brilliant save as they piled bodies forward and in the dying seconds with the 'keeper on the edge of our box we managed to break clear and Samuel used his pace to outstrip the left back before scoring. It put a gloss on the scoreline but there was no doubt we were the better side.

All in all, a big result that puts 5th, 6th and 7th within range. We've put a good solid run together and need to keep it going now.

Final word about the Newport fan who had the heart attack - I believe he was resuscitated by the medical team and I hope that he is OK.

Well they could have easily won a point and if they play like that for the rest of the season they'll have a more than fair chance of staying up.

Meanwhile, as for us - when we have the ball and it is comfortable we look a nice side - nice doesn't get you any promotions.

We just edged it, just and the 3rd goal was as comical as u will ever see !

We need more fans guys - good turn out today and far tougher tests to come

Hope the Newport fan is ok - probably the ref in France's fault ! But sincere best wishes

Special thanks to my Bob Haaton X driver Barry - brilliant - having a glass of Merlot and savouring another good footie day

Enjoy yer Sunday when I'll be back on the bike !! Watch out Mark H !!

Robbie,
The irony is the more you win the less the chance you have of getting rid of Oyston.

I disagree with Giro - the more we win, if promotion is attained, the more attractive the club is and I reckon for the right price they'd be off before the ink was dry.

#NAPM is something fans have bought in to but truth be known they're buying more in to the fact we're now a League Two side who supporters no longer want to be associated with (that and the Oystons who would lose a popularity contest with the family of Kim Jung Un).

If we do get in the Play Offs (and don't know why but I think we'll just miss out) and we do go up then only a sizable investment on and off the field would bring fans back. However a league one club is more appealing than a league two one to a buyer and so at the moment personally I still want us to win and get promoted.

I totally agree with Giro.

We have a spoilt Mummy's boy as a Chairman, who won't let go while the club makes any form of profit.

A higher division means an over inflated selling price.

You're just cheering on The Oyston's Cash Cow.

Not true Giro, if they aren't going to go in L2. Then they aren't going to go in L1.

They will go when they cannot afford it anymore. Their stubbornness is their downfall and VB is set to take a lot of cash from them. Or, potentially a large football club as an asset.

IMO I think that there would be no chance of oystons selling if we were to get promoted, they would just look at more away fans and just giving them as many tickets as they want.

I hope we don't make the play offs (as why give them more money), val wins big time and they finally decide enough is enough and put club up for sale at a reasonable price. Its our only hope...

I suppose the other angle is that, if VB was unsure whether he wanted the club or just his cash, then a L1 place might tip the balance in favour of him staying.

If we got promoted it would mean higher wages. Not much extra revenue in return and the real possibity of losing more money with a team battling relegation.

Be careful what you wish for.

When we were in League One, average away followings were in the region of 850.

Hardly a cash cow.

I genuinely don't see a massive increase in income from a promotion but as a club we'd be a more attractive proposition to prospective owners as we'd be nearer the Championship where money can be made.

After all this time its hard to understand why we still have stupid people wanting us to get promoted.

Just how many times do these mushrooms have to be shat on before they get it?

Dennis is correct and these people despite being few in number now are partly responsible for the parasites still being here and we all know it.

But wizard what teams then, imagine we had been league one this season.... Cods, Coventry, sheff utd, Oldham, bury, Bradford, bolton.. Would have been a good away average... Would hate to think what we would have given to Bolton.

I'm doubtful they will ever go but I certainly think promotion would keep them here longer [cr]

So what some of you are saying is that you have NO faith in Belekon winning his case and that win making a difference to the ownership of the club?
The increased attendance from home and away fans if we got promoted is nothing compared to the potential loss in the courts.
That is where this battle will be won or lost.
My view: I hope we go on a run that guarantees at least a PO place and eventual promotion but I also understand that it runs a risk of doing the opposite.

I don't know about the others but I'm not saying that at all!

A L2 club is worth less than a L1 club.

Any settlement with VB will take into account the value of the company and club.

OO bleats on about assets wirth £38m but a struggling L2 club with pitiful training facilities is wish much less.

You're kidding yourself if you think a promotion won't make the club more lucrative and hence more difficult for VB to take.

Somehow I think VB will be reluctant to buy a club that has been run down as much as it has.
I think he'll take the money and chalk this off as a bad experience, and walk away.

A man who has the enthusiasm and absolute chutzpah to wear a tangerine suit to Wembley will not have forgotten about the fans. For almost 10 years now, VB has been unwavering in his hopes for BFC, and has never changed his tune. Since he has never once lied to us, we should continue to believe he wants to be a minority but significant owner as he says. It's just that he will not invest another penny with the Stains and I believe he does want to ruin them for shafting him on the lottery win.

AK I think you are ascribing far too much to what some people will do to make themselves popular.

He may well want the club, albeit he would be an unknown quantity in some ways. But there is no guarantee he will.

I really do hope we make the Wembley PO final. We have every chance. That will be a real test of NAPM. If only a few thousand turn up, basically 1000 of the 1500 ST holders plus a few family members with each, that will make headline news and set the scene perfectly for the court case.

If we go up the Stains will crow it's the start of the renaissance but the actual attendance will be more telling. As to whether we do actually go up, I believe it cuts both ways. Better to be higher when we start with new owners. I don't think it will make much difference to the value of the club.

Would promotion encourage the Stains to cling on? Not if NAPM holds next season and a VB court victory demands a huge amount In damages and costs. They would probably then try to offload BFC at an inflated price but it will come down to a fire sale if VB holds out for hard cash. And can VB block any sale to someone not on his side? The Stains said something similar when they said a year or two ago that an earlier offer could not be considered by the BFC board because VB would not participate. Mind you, I didn't believe them.

And you, BRR, are ascribing suspicion where, to date, there has been absolutely no reason to do so. That says more about your nature and character than the evidence about VB on public show to date.

And he hasn't said he 'wants' the club, he has said he wants to continue in his minor role working with an owner he can trust. He may just take the cash if his shares have to be bought back, that depends on what a judge rules. But if he can keep them as well as being financially compensated I think he might, if the court decision forces the Stains into selling their majority to someone VB trusts.

I prefer to trust what VB has said because he is the great white hope, our best chance. I am not going to sneer at him or cast doubt on his trustworthiness. I take people as I find them. Until they prove otherwise.

Isn't that how we have judged the Stains over the past decade? We tolerated them until they showed their true selves.

I don't think there is anything odd or unduly cynical about treating businessmen who emerge from the former Soviet Union with loads of cash with just a little caution. [smi]

Yeah, that bløødy Abramovich has really let down the Chelsea fans, hasn't he? Granted, there have been a few wrong'uns, like the Pompey chap.
But one ought to believe a banker can be trusted (yes, I know Goodwin and the RBS/HBOS tossers couldn't be in 2008) and VB has proven himself in court already. But better an unknown quantity than the very well known character of the Stains. Anything has to be better. Truly.

People were surprised we got 1500 ST holders - don't be that surprised if we got 10,000 at Wembley - why would you let the Oyston family deny you a big day out? I think most happy clappers don't care less and would go to Wembley (for reference I don't think we'll get there and so the argument is immaterial!).

It's unlikely anyone will make money in the Championship because of the increased costs needed to mount a challenge- and even survive.
Rotherham have stuck to what they can reasonably afford and have bombed,whilst others including the likes of Derby have huge imminent financial problems.

It takes a special kind of owner to run a successful football club and keep it on track,and those are few and far between.

Long term problems building up for you guys within the fanbase imo,and unfortunately a winning team does help maintain the current custodians tenure.

Good to hear Newport could still stay up - remember Michael Flynn from Blackpool days and was always great at the TANGO events. Plus they do have to play a few sides around us starting with Luton on Tuesday.
