  1. The usual band of idiots

    Some young c**t on the front row was screaming abuse at the linesman with his middle finger raised for 5 minutes after a standard 'close call' offside. Was with his dad too. Must be proud of his lad. Thick tw*ts the pair of them.
  2. Chesterfield Tickets

    Will try to buy online. Anyone know where you go to pick up pre-ordered tickets. It just says you'll avoid queuing at the ticket office if you buy online. Do you print out a ticket at home or something? Once again I have to come here for info like this. As usual the FCHT website about it sheds no light and the CFC website is even more vague.
  3. Kiwomya, my Lord

    Do I remember him scoring a goal at Gateshead away one Christmas on a pitch that resembled an ice rink? Most of the players were playing in trainers. Sure that was him. The skinny legs comment jogged my memory.
  4. Best ever FC Halifax Town game

    How about that Chasetown game where we were 0-1 down in the 84th minute. Vardy scored a hatrick and it ended up a 3-2 win. Mental.
  5. Gareth Seddon's new ad

    I loved the bit on the Salford City documentary where he said something along the lines of "My wife's the cheese expert. I think it just tastes like sick on toast". No wonder it all went tits up if that was the best he could do with an opportunity for free advertising.
  6. 6th October 2015 - the one Kelly won

    Only game I attended in the Kelly era. I didn't know what everyone was complaining about
  7. Relegation form

    I noticed this morning that since the Salford game we've only played one team in the bottom half of the league (which we won) and have played 7 of the top 9 in that time. An eminently winnable run of games coming up too (8 out of next 9 are against teams currently in the bottom half. I predict the tide is about to turn!
  8. Halifax town v man united 1990

    Saw the Home leg before I went off to Manchester University and the Away leg in my first week there. I wasn't missing the Shaymen at Old Trafford for an outside chance of copping off at a Fresher's Disco. Jamie Paterson out-jumping Gary Pallister to head a ball is one of my lasting memories of the OT game. That and laughing at Man Utd fans who were mocking us when we lost. A 2-1 final score said more about them than it did about us, but they just didn't seem to have any shame that they'd essentially struggled past a soon to be conference team. Probably why I have no sympathy for their fans now the glory days are past despite having a soft spot for the club.
  9. Loan signings

    Alex Simmons came from Lincoln City for 3 months a couple of years back scored 8 goals (almost every game he played?) and disappeared back again. Done sweet FA anywhere else before or since and now playing for Gainsborough Trinity. Strange, strange game. 
  10. I am confused.

    Your squad list is missing Josh MacDonald who signed for another year earlier this week according to the website.
  11. Brighthouse Town

    Top trolling on the website misspelling Brighouse Town. Nice one.
  12. Michael Collins

    Yeah. If you can let us know I'll change the dog walk route that day to avoid it.
  13. Roll on the New Season

    Absolutely agree with everything you say. Time to move on. Billy came in and did the job of immediately getting us out of a very difficult league to escape using the players and tactics needed. Have people forgotten the team spirit in evidence through the play-off games? We were outside the play-off places at one point with just over a month of the season to go for goodness sake, yet won 7 of our 9 remaining fixtures. Conference is different we all know that and Billy struggled, but for goodness sake applaud the man for what he did for us. Different approaches are needed now and have been put in place by the looks of it. Who would those still refusing to say 'thank you and goodbye' have rather had as manager in the Conference North?  
  14. For anyone who uses Discogs, I recently added the FC Halifax Town song from our FA Trophy final in 2016. After sitting waiting for someone else to upload it for about a year I thought I'd do it myself. Search for release number r11846965
  15. Well the rumours START

    £213m? Bring it on.
