  1. Erik, you've worn the keys out on your keyboard, the last post seems half esperanto. Have a break!
  2. Do you remember the half-time scoreboard, in the corner, by the former Shay Hotel, with the faded Webster's 'Wee Sam' logo, and the mossy platform, which kids would climb onto during a dire match and swing and play? The letters corresponded to that days half time scores, if you purchased a programme for 10p. . . Example: 'A': 1:0. Liverpool 1, Manchester Utd 0, you would know how the Division One teams were doing. You would then catch up on the final score, if you were quick enough by heading into town by looking in Fred Moores, Rumbelowes, or Comets shop windows just before they switched off. We also had transistors radio's for up to date scores, now we have the instant access of mobile internet and the bombardment of bloggers! Up the Shaymen- looking forward to the new season.
  3. Well, Bussomworth has given us some desperate years with some of his appointments, let hope we now have some Wild years to enjoy!
  4. Not a dickie bird from DB, or the communication team on how near or how far they are of making a decision. Unbelievable and yet again happy to keep the fans just drifting along. Shocking.
  5. Sorry if I have missed a post(s), but has Scot gone down with the ship since the Captain left? Will there be a closing post from our friend from across the border?
  6. Some kind of info. But why hope too high? We are not worthy it seems.
  7. Immenient announcement from Dangerous Dave due sometime soon? The wall of sound is deafening once again from our Leeds base empire and base. Never mind, the Board have got the 1,000 suckers cash already, with little effort yet again to prop up their ides of utopia.
  8. I'd withhold your Calderdale Council tax this year Erik.
  9. Yes! Some folk are better than others, that life and circumstances whatever it may be, we need - whoever it is - to steady the ship and give some fun and entertainment back to the supporters. Can't remember much fun watching a JF team (can you?), until the end with loanees propping is up. JF has had two bites at the cherry, who would give him a third?
  10. I think JF had ideas above his station, (what were his achievements prior to being appointed?), we all want the best - but it comes at a price and budget. I believe JF thought he was too good for us and the division, but you've got to cut your teeth somewhere. We will never see his like again . . .
  11. It sadly seems we are sinking like a stone Nick. What guidance do we have? We are left to speculate, which creates confusion. We are starting another season on the back foot and clinging on. We are kept at the very long end of a sticky stick.
  12. I posted earlier this week, (sensibly), I thought!? But the post got swamped by unnecessary political joshing, in the end! But to summarise my original post, there are two busy business men in this world who are both busy and industrious doing their own business duties day to day. One of them finds the opportunity to communicate regularly with the global population, (sense or nonsense, DT), the other one, closer to home keeps quiet and stum, DB? Why? Our Club needs support from the whole community, but the chief of our club remains mute! Why? One step forward, six back. Ten years on and still in communication limbo.
  13. Sadly, still no noise from the big cheese? Why is there such ignorance shown towards the fans - the potential new fans and the town? Not even the manager has spoken yet, which feeds from the top. It is truly beyond belief.
  14. Earing and Silva, he'll be signing Paul Jewell next. Desperate times.
  15. Hard pitch it is then. I can now look forward to the new season.
  16. Cometh the hour, cometh the man . . . what will DB do in his power as this Club's chairman in the next 48 hrs? When we should be getting prepared and getting set to hit the ground running for the start of the season, nothing? Even Donald Trump - busy as he is, communicates regularly. Can we expect a video on the website within the next 48 hrs, to explain what is happening. SHOCKING YET AGAIN! Why, oh why?
  17. Looks like the pre-season preparations are going swimmingly bad! We will be chasing our tails from the start. Our austere board are clearly out of their depth, as they either haven't the means, or the gile to get things moving in the right direction yet again.
  18. What about the theme tune from 'Game of Thrones'? We could be inventive and have our own mix by calling it 'Down to the Bare Bones' . . . it is July 3rd and we haven't enough for a team. We could have DB dressed in an inflatable pound sign, handing out Standing Order forms to the crowd after leading out the teams to boost funds? With no music! I may be totally wrong . . . but with all the contacts we have, a game was never organised for a pre-season fixture with Sheffield Utd, to me that is a business opportunity lost, is it another example of short-sighted business sense? If we had a game arranged, yes monetary cost would incur, but we'd have a great atmosphere too. It appears to me just how much we appear to be just tredding water, with the purse strings unable to give for once.
  19. 'Sounds of Silence' by Simon and Garfunkel, would be more apt for the intro music, the latest nonsense with the piece-meal poll sums up sadly - the now to be expected regular pre-season fiasco from the Club. It is now the eleventh season we have encountered poor customer service from the product we heavily support in time, money and devotion. Zero communication from the Board yet again, whom it would appear wish to keep the loyal fans in their place, it is more like the Middle-Ages than the modern age following the reformed club. Is all we can sadly expect in three pitiful months to be thankful and grateful - of our Club - for their greatest public activity to date by having a crappy intro song poll and a tangerine and blue away kit, at the eight season of asking? What have we had so far . . . a long drawn out a teasing announcement on social media of a new signing . . . who on face value is a fringe player, talk about false dawn's. I'm getting fed up and disinterested already and it is 11 months until the end of the season! Crickey Moses! The Board to me seem to be going into reverse and winding down, come to think of it too, it seemed such odd behaviour in holding supporters meetings towards the end of last season by imposing age restrictions on who could attend, we're not Russia, Hong Kong or North Korea, what's all that about? It just seems a funny business with fans on the prriferey, being on the outside, looking in. It just seems so sad and very odd all round that it looks to be such a peculiar business which may be going into it's death throws.
  20. Barndoswick Utd and Pickering Town it is then! Aim low and reap what you sow!
  21. The best way to earn much needed income to support the club's everyday expenses, like hotels and buses would be to have a meaty pre-season fixture at the Shay. During the trios reign what has there been. . . Tin pot fixtures! Having no crowd much above a 1,000, and all the while wittering to the faithful to dig deeper! They now have 12 months to start approaching a big club to appear at the Shay for the next pre-season, which if they manage to have a fixture with some 'stars', at the Shay will in turn build on the young future fan base.
