  1. Great to see Salford top of the League!

    I certainly hope not. Actually I would like to see some sensible financial investment come in to our club. Bosomworth's fellow directors are no Spring chickens, isn't it time to enlarge the board by bringing in one or two younger members who would put some money in to the team? Or David himself might reach in to his pocket. Get in to the Football League, and the huge tv money provides a massive financial benefit.
  2. I thought that heading would grab your attention! However I say great, not because I like Salford, but because I hate the shocking amount of money they are throwing around at non League level. They are completely skewing the lie of the land for "normal" non League clubs, due to the ridiculous money they are paying in transfer fees and wages, eg Rooney. But I'm really glad to see them top, because I feel the sooner they go up to the Football League, the better, and we get rid of them from the non League scene.  
  3. Michael Collins

    I think some Bradford City fans felt Collins was playing hoofball.
  4. Michael Collins

    Some people are saying "Don't upset a settled team". But that team includes Lenighan. So are these people now saying they are happy to have Lenighan?? My own view is I'd be very happy to have Collins back. But I also beleve in giving people a second chance, like we did Macca. So I'm not going to be shouting for Lenighan to be kicked out, I thought he played well against Gateshead.
  5. Loan signings

    When we were first relegated from THe Football League in the 90's we had a brilliant winger on loan from Sheffield Wednesday. His name was Williams. Michael I think. He was with us around January/February time. He almost saved us from the drop single handed. Unfortunately he went back to Wednesday, and down we went.
  6. I read somewhere this week that only 4 of the National League teams are still part time. Anyone know who these clubs are?
  7. Salford splashing the cash again

    Here's an idea. If Neville and his crew don't think the home crowds at the Ammie's stadium are big enough, they could always pay people to go and watch their games. After all, they're buying everything else...so why not spectators?
  8. Kosy

    Wait til you see the result at Braintree, and people will be crying out to have Kosy in the team!!
  9. Based on pre season, it looks like we have a significant problem in defence, shipping too many goals. Six games, and we've yet to keep a clean sheet. And that includes 3 games against teams from Divisions below us. Say what you like about Heath, he knew how to recruit and organise a good defence, with plenty of clean sheets. Given that we're not exactly scoring lots of goals, and we are missing our most creative player in Kosylo, it's hard to see where a victory is coming from. Fullerton has got his work cut out, and needs to improve things. We've lost too many useful players from last season, with not enough good replacements. We need to get the trialists sorted out, and I think we need one or two extra signings also.
  10. Jacob Hanson

    I'm happy with this signing.
  11. When Glory Shone Around Upon FC Halifax Town - Discogs

    I use discogs. It's just helped me raise several hundred pounds selling various vinyl albums and singles.
  12. Guiseley have not one, not two....

    Wasn't it Bignot that got Chester relegated? This seems a really underwhelming appointment for Guiseley.
  13. Player of the season

    It's got to be Brown for me. A rock in defence and a good captain. 2nd place Kosylo, Collins in 3rd.
  14. New Signing

    I worry when we are reduced to taking Guiseley rejects!
  15. I was a little worried by some of the comments from Bosomworth when he talks about wanting to develop players for the Football League. Sureley we want to see the BOD develop the team and the club for the Football League. Halifax Town has been a Football League club for most of its history. Many fans want to see the club get back there, not be struggling near the bottom of the National League, or dare I say it, stuck in National North. David, can you offer us a realistic path back to League football. If Accrington, Morecambe and Barnet can do it on worse attendances than ours, surely we should be able to do it??
