  • Caesars, Goodgramgate, York - Reviewed 12/01/02

    I had tried booking a table at Caesars - the popular Italian eatery on Goodramgate - before, only to be told they were fully booked. So when we decided it would be a good place to take visiting friends over the festive season, I took the precaution of booking well in advance. read more

  • Block planning

    DOUGLAS Craig's price of £4.5 million for Bootham Crescent is based on the potential development of the ground and surrounding amenities. read more

  • Moral obligation

    DOUGLAS Craig may be legally within his rights to sell Bootham Crescent Holdings for £4.5 million but what about his moral obligations to the fans and the city of York? read more

    THE comment made by Brian Lomax (Evening Press, Tuesday, January 8) in which he states "Supporters through the gates put more money into football clubs" hit the nail smack on the head! read more

    IN planning terms Bootham Crescent is currently designated for leisure use and a statement from the leader of the City of York Council that it has no intention of allowing residential development will do much to dampen the ardour of the owners of for its sale. read more

  • Lack of ambition

    UNFORTUNATELY, York City seem to lack ambition and I recall Mark Tinkler's comments a couple of years back referring to the Minstermen as 'plodders'. After recent events I agree 100 per cent with the comments. read more

  • Pull together

    I HAVE expressed grave concern over the off-field goings on at York City in the Evening Press before. read more

  • Hard to believe

    WHAT a farce at Bootham Crescent. I can't believe what is happening there neither can my friends and fellow supporters of York City. I cannot believe the dire straits the club now finds itself in after all these years in the Football League.
