Three in a row for Linnets and great win for Town against AFC Blackpool

Both sides should be looking for a top ten finish in Premier league next season but can either side challenge for the title?

Good game at Town, by far the better side out of the two.
Game had only just got going when a nothing challenge between 2 players kicking the ball at exactly the same time, seen the Blackppol player absorb the impact and a nasty injury to the ankle. The game was held up for 40 minutes as an abmbulance arrived and came onto the pitch. Must have been bad given the speed it drove away, hardly moving along the road incase the impact was felt.
After that interuption Town dominated and 2 well crafted goals gave a 2-0 first half lead.
Blackpool pushed in the 2nd half and pulled one back, but town looked the better side and could have had a couple more.

Decent gate at pavillions today, ovre 160 there (Lots of old Runcorn FC Regulars, including a few Linnets fans).
Shows how far they have come in such a short space of time.

Can they now push for the 1st division Championship?

Opening of Millbank, Linnets had over 1,000 fans. Now that is down to just over 200.
Start of the season, Runcorn Town had 40 fans, its now over 160.
Spot the trend.
No wonder your running scared.

If Town get promoted, both Linnets and Town will be mid table teams at best.
Linnets lack any ambition and the right players to challenge.
Town will just look to consolodate a place in the league.

But the team has been dire under Macca for the majority of the season.
The Linnets do the same every year, struggle and are amongst the relegation places, then come the last few weeks when they play teams with nothing to play for, manage to put some results together. Its easy to beat teams at the end of the season who have nothning to play for and are simply seeing out games or resting people for cup games.
Paul Prescott wont be there next season and he has been the in form player in the last few games.
Come October, it will be the same shouts for the manager to go. After getting giddy over a couple of pre-season results.
Face facts, Linnets wont be challenging for promotion next season.

how will Runcorn Town cope then when their best players are getting snapped up by Evo-Stick clubs like what is happening now with Linnets, more scouts will come to watch Town if they are succesful and take their best players, continuity will then become a problem.

The premier is a much harder league then the 1st, which is nothing more then a glorified West Cheshire league 1, Linnets proved this and so are Town this season.

Runcorn Town have done well this season and only the bitterest of Linnets fans would not acknowledge that fact, the hard work comes next season when you are up against better teams, when you have to cope with increased costs whilst raising your existing gate entry from £2 to at least 4/5 quid to get in, how will the faithful 60/70 fans cope with that rise.

Runcorn linnets also need to take stock in the summer, they can ill afford to have another season like this one, a season that promised so much but delivered so little. They have to be putting together a serious challenge for the league and also good cup runs, inconsistency has go to stop and some of the ressies need to be given their chance otherwise whats the point in having them. If this doesnt happen then its time for the people on the board to take a step back, look at themselves and do the honourable thing and let someone lese take over, new ideas etc otherwise the club will be taken over by Town.

I for one cant wait for next season when we will have 2 proper derbys to look forward to and what can only be a good thing for the town but hopefully 2 clubs giving it a right go till the end of the season.
