    Thanks once again for your help over the past few months Ian, you will never know how much these articles highlighting the full and proper details of our plight have been appreciated by the majority of Chester fans who have read them.

    We will be back and we will be back with a club that will give my son and his mates something to be very proud of, something akin to the pride that I have experienced following this small and unfashionable club for many years.

    Another great post on the sorry, sorry demise of Chester City.

    From an Oxford United fan to all you loyal Chester City fans, it must be absolutely gut-wrenching but stick with the rebirth and we hope to meet your new club again in future. Best of luck on your journey.

    Best of luck also from a Swindon fan – the right end of the A420 :)

    And once more well done to Ian and everyone at twohundredpercent for the role this excellent blog played in bringing the true facts of this story to wider attention

    From a Luton fan, I wish you all the best for the future. I hate the way football seems to be going in this country, the football authorities are doing their best to destroy it. So I hope you have every success and stick it too em!!!!

    Colwyn Bay Fan in Peace (though you may be playing us next year).

    Best of luck to your club, you have great fans, great supporters & a great following, just a shame that your owners weren’t kosher. Hopefully there’ll be football at the Deva yet, the council & CFU sound like they have their heads screwed on straight. I attended a rally earlier this season against the owners, just as a fan of football.

    I’m going to miss these latest episodes of Chesterenders :)

    Good luck CFU.

    Fantastic campaign by twohundredpercent; let’s just hope that the true Chester fans can now be allowed to re-form their football club without any more interference from the crooks, shysters and opportunists still sniffing around football. Good luck for the future!

    Best of luck to all Chester fans for a new beginning from a Rushden & Diamonds fan.

    […] Chester City: The Death, The Funeral & The Wake “Anyone turning up at The High Court on The Strand in London this morning hoping or expecting to see fireworks was disappointed. There was to be no last minute impassioned speech, in the manner of Gregory Peck in ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’. For the second time in less than two weeks, the owners of Chester City Football Club didn’t even carry the common courtesy to attend a meeting that would shape the destiny of their club. This time, the reality of their destiny was swiftly delivered. Chester City (2004) Limited was wound up over its unpaid tax bill in a matter of minutes, and that was that. Perhaps this time they knew in their heart of hearts that this was a busted flush.” (twohundredpercent) […]
