 13 December 2007: "The board is asking supporters to show their opposition to the league's decision by not going to the game against Curzon ... [we feel] that it is important that a message is sent to the league that the views of the match-going fan must take precedence and those fans should not be inconvenienced in favour of a potential internet audience" - the FC United board protest at a kick-off time change in favour of the UniBond League's broadcaster, NPLTV.

26 October 2010: "We would like to advise supporters that our FA Cup first round proper tie against Rochdale will take place on Friday 5 November, kick off 7.45pm ... Each club will be paid £67,500 for the game to be shown, a sum of money undoubtedly valuable to both clubs" - yep, you've guessed it. It's the FC United board again.
