Hi to all you Red Devil Revellers :reddevils

01April – :joker
Crawley played away against Port Vale and lost, contrary to our positive stance at that time forecasting Crawley to win by two goals.
We got the number of goals correct although the wrong team scored them :thumbsdown

The team is up and down more than a fiddlers elbow :nopity

Post the not so distant Zenith :scratch :-D - beating Wolves back in March.. :aok

The Red devils played out five matches and losing them all, before a break in the trend, when Crawley beat the MK Dons two goals to nil. :crawleyscarf
The Club went on a roll from that point forward, by winning their next two games, both Tranmere and Leyton'O being beaten 2 goals to nil :crawleyscarf
Things appeared to be looking :clap :clap up. :thunbsup
Sadly, not to last! :confused
:football :football :football

Playing away and then losing to Notts County back on April21, and then losing away at Bradford on the26th. :angry
Next up Carlisle visit the C.A.T. stadium and need a win, to avoid relegation from division one.

Whilst Carlisle have everything to play for :yes and by coincidence Bristol City kicked Port Vale backside 5-0 back in March. :scratc
It would be great to finish this season on a high
:youreds :crawleyscarf :crawleyscarf :youreds


Gregory best quotes Nots County 1 Crawley 0 (21/04) "We seem to have a problem against teams in the lower half and I think it is a mental problem and it will need to be a lot better next season. :yes

Bradford 2 Crawley 1 (29/04) "But other people should take responsibility in that situation and it's something we need to spend time on in the summer."
And so say all of us :clap

Hi to all you Crawley FC supporters :reddevils
Post the last :mz blog re the fortunes of :crawleyscarf, where we predicted (more hoped) that the devils would finish the season in a blaze of glory thereby winning the final two matches. :confused
And with as all things in football, we all understand that few things go as expected. :no (The recent match- Liverpool v Crystal Palace stands testimony to this notion, after Liverpool let slip a 3-0 lead in the final 11 minutes ending with draw 3-3 draw).

The Red devils only managed a no score draw, against now relegated Carlisle (April29)
Plus when it all looked promising in the begining while playing at home against Bristol City, Crawley led by one goal :scarf until the second half play then, Crawley conceded the goal, which when the final whistle blew, 1-1 being the result (May01). Crawley finished 14th on the table at the season end.. :aok
Ten places below where the team started back in Aug 2013.

One of this seasons’ high points was repaying an earlier 2-1 defeat by The Wolves back in August 13, Ritchie Barker era, then beating Wolves 2-1 under John Gregory. :scratch (Wolves finished top of the table with a stomping 103 points) :shock:

Still :crawleyscarf have a continuing backroom shake up and on all accounts a reduction in numbers (boots on the ground) both on and off the pitch is forecast for this summer.

Head Coach Guy Whittingham contract has been terminated.
Gregory’s contract has been extended to 2016.

It has been stated tough financial decisions will influence the club as they move forward towards next season kicks off. :firey
Teamwise
BILLY CLARKE, MARK CONNOLLY, PAUL CONNOLLY, GARY DICKER, RORY FALLON
Goalie PAUL JONES, LOUIS JOHN, JOHNNY MADDISON, ALEX MALINS, JONTE SMITH and SERGIO TORRES are to leave the club.
We wish them good fortune for the future :applause
DANNIE BULMAN, MIKE JONES, JAMIE PROCTOR, MAT SADLER have until the end of May to accept or decline the clubs offer.
:football :football :football
BRADLEY ISAACS, RYAN RICHEFOND, ANDY DRURY, CONNOR ESSAM, KYLE McFADZEAN, JOSH SIMPSON, JOE WALSH are already under contract for next season. :football
Rookies BRADLEY ISAACS, RYAN RICHEFOND are in to boot :football
With all the uncertainty surrounding the club and forthcoming summer reshaping it will certainly make for interesting times ahead. :scratc
:youreds

2,3,4 come on u reds

Postby mzawf » Tue May 17, 2016 4:43 pm

A sense of déjà vu is a buzzing down at the CAT stadium, with yet another shakeup in progress.
Changes at board level down to the pitch have been facilitated.
After a lengthy wait (2013) The Club now have a new owner, who, and if you believe some of the reports!
Purchased the club for the sum of a £1.00 ‘Club statment, 'deposit paid to the solicitors.’ :rotfl
What is the deposit on £1? Personally I could have got them a better price, and paid in cash.

A source did report that the president of a TFF first division team (Kayseri Erciyesspor) may have invested as much as €4 million / £3.1. In Crawley Town F.C

Chairman Ziya Eren, a successful Turkish Businessman and guiding influence to Kayseri Erciyesspor since 2011.
Clearly, Ziya Eren, has a passion for football on the pitch and a sound vision for the clubs future.
Kayseri Erciyesspor, winning the TFF First league 2012/2013, and then playing the Turkish Super league, 2013/2015.
Ziya, has targeted Crawley to reach the Championship in eight to 10 years.


Following last season’s relegation to the 2nd division campaign success and feel good factors has been in short supply
With the club finishing in the lower section of the table, the Red Devils fortunes have been gloomily mixed.
44 games in Lg2 Lost 23 Won 13 and Drew 8
Putting a positive spin on the final games
Closing matches next up Dag Red (The Daggers)
:mz predicts this should result a comfortable away win,!
This prior to when Barnet (The Bees) visit the CAT Stadium for the end of season ‘finale’
:mz predicts the win over Barnet, based on recent performance
- York v The Bees 1-1 - Morecambe 4 – Barnet 2- vie-a-vis, Crawley 2 York 2 and Crawley 1-1 Morecambe, Come on you Reds a result to carry the team onwards to future glory. :rotfl
Alas again it all turned to wasted-hope again and as is a reflection on the apathy felt when trying to write a positive account, on the Fortunes of the Crawley Town F.C.
Likely best just to move on, on! It’s been a mixed bag since steveizy started writing up on the devils by steveizy » Sun Oct 03, 2010 8:08 pm.
Looking at the picture as a whole, regardless being of great interest it’s still, a downward slide.
After reaching the nadir on a scale of one to ten
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nadir
‘The only way is up’
I’m all blogged out and looking towards a brighter future

“And so say all of us”! Come on You Reds :crawleyscarf
First step back to league one
2 3 4 here we go
:youreds

Hats off to all of you dedicated Red Devils fans for your unwavering and continued support for the team.
It's been tough , the team blagged it!
With good result in short supply.
No point in Picking over ‘the bones’
The only way is up :thunbsup :aok :scarf :crawleyscarf

Not quite Barclays Premier League yet but CTFC are top of the Blue Square Premier League by 3 points after 13 games. Promotion at the end of the season would earn them a place in the football league.

They have a tough match away at Luton on Tues. but whatever the result the 3 point buffer will help.

I say - let's all get behind them


"GO ON CRAWLEY"!

The above quote posted by steveizy back in 2010. :crawleyscarf Redz Devils. :devil
It’s been emotional :cry more down than up :scratch
Zenith New Crawley boss Richie Barker began with a win as the Reds knocked Millwall out of the League Cup on penalties.'
viewtopic.php?f=38&t=573&start=135#p3271
vis-à-vis The Nadir point! relegation to the second division. Albeit at that this time, on the ‘face of things’ it appears, the club was :punch its weight’.
Time marching on- August 06 2016. Kicking off, a new beginning
Wycombe Wanderers visit the CAT stadium, and, looking back to the teams last 'clash' (Dec 2015) :devils the redz lost a 2 goal to nil trouncing!
Fielding a new squad sporting many youthful qualities ‘up and coming’ players, in addition to some town veterans ‘to boot’ :clap :crawleyscarf
11 players, who can comfortably play well in multiple positions as well as big purse purchases, Yow! Fortune abound!
'let the games begin' :reddevils
A win against the Blues would be encouraging, and then following a 3 day break, Wolves visit the CAT :clap
EFL Cup 1st round
The overall team strategy looks strong :mz :director striker/forward/attack side of things :scratch appears challenging :indifferent
The front line needs bolstering :yes

Chairman Ziya Eren, Respect!

Postby mzawf » Thu Jan 05, 2017 5:39 pm

Hi, time too catch up on the fortunes of Crawley’s Red Devils. :-D
Following the Yeovil Trouncing 5 goals to nil December past , and more recently ‘retribution’ takith back of O ‘scalp’ Devils 2 the Glovers nil :clap
With the :mz footy fray playing out true to form, all with average outcomes.
The state of play at the CAT Stadium is very much midrange
Football it’s a tough game. :football
:yes in that still holding mid-table (Current position 13). :aok
Focusing on league two matches as is 8 wins plays 10 losses.
That along with 5 draws 4 one all’s :o and one no score! :shock:
Déjà Vu :confused

(Argus)
Crawley’s new owner insists his dream of leading the club into the Championship within ten years is possible. In fact, Turkish businessman Ziya Eren says the goal could be achieved sooner than that. But the steel magnate has stressed only togetherness between everyone involved in the club – players, management, staff and fans – can make it happen.

Full Text
Seemly it’s going to be a slow process while :mz is looking ahead to around 2025 ish reporting Championship status!
Around that time Space Exploration ‘Boldly goes where no human being has been before’.

Bring it on

Looking back on the fortunes of :crawleyscarf Town FC to date
On the day Morecambe, aka the Shrimps, visit the CAT Stadium (18/02). :drummer
:crawleyscarf visited the Globe Arena, in September last, winning by one goal (2-3) :clap
Worryingly though, the Shrimps trounced Notts County 4 goals to one on the 17th of Jan. :scratc
The Magpies won by a feather :joker 2-1 when Crawley played at Meadow Lane Nottingham (28/01)
With both teams sporting a -9 goal difference albeit Morecambe have a game in hand, 39 points plays 38!
All things considered it’s going to be a good day down at the CAT stadium :mz
Ouch! 3 nil down at halftime Do you believe in miracles??? : Ouch! 3 nil down at halftime Do you believe in miracles??? :indifferent Ouch! 3 nil down at halftime :cry Do you believe in miracles??? :indifferent Ouch! 3 nil down at halftime Do you believe in miracles??? :indifferent

Do we believe in Miracles? Nope! Just in hard work and loads of Good luck :celebrate

To conclude on our blustering, it may have been a Sunny day down at the CAT Stadium.
The devils had their shorts around their ankles, from the start. :mz wasn’t there and cannot constructively add comment :shock: , albeit reading match reports it seems that the animal kill instinct was absent, and following the first goal, from then, it was all about catch up!
Morecambe monopolised the advantage within minutes of the first goal.
It’s not impressive, it’s early days
