A huge day for Chester FC

It's been a month since the first blog on here, and a lot has happened in between times, as Chester FC now becomes one step closer.

Today, the final meeting with the Council takes place, and at some point following the meeting the council will decide on whether to assign the lease to City Fans United and their plans for Chester FC, or whether to hand it over to a non local, in fact overseas Danish consortium, who have refused to back down despite originally advising that they would not throw a rival bid in if the fans did not back it.

So, it's time for the Council to make the right decision for the whole of Chester. To have an overseas group controlling the club ahead of local people would just be a disgrace - it's as simple as that.

City Fans United are within small steps of bringing Chester FC back to the Community, whereas the Danes will take things the other way, and have even said they'll be taking people over to Denmark, as well as the kids, well the Junior Blues has already built itself up to be a great membership, and proving that last week with the trip to FC United of Manchester at Gigg Lane, which saw them take part in the United Youth Day, and parade around the pitch getting a great reception from the home fans.

The future is set to be bright at Chester FC with the backing the club is receiving even before it officially gets the green light - businesses are throwing their weight behind Chester FC as they bid to rebuild the bridges burned by previous owners.

The time for common sense has arrived, and a vote for the Danes would certainly be viewed as political suicide by the Conservative-led local government, and David Cameron should be taking note as any slip up here could lead to a loss of seat in the Chester region.

City Fans United are of course made up of Chester fans, and they know the bid from the CFU is the one that should be chosen if the club is to move forward.

Let's hope the Council agree.
