The New Season

23 posts in this topic

I really don't want to be negative, but this must surely rate as one of the worst build ups for the new season as I can ever remember. The web site tells you next to nothing, The managers statements are so bland it beggers belief. How they try to generate enthusiasm to attend matches for the people of Halifax is just beyond me. With one pre season game to go are we putting out a team to meet the rigours of conference football or are we going right up to next Friday with trialists instead of two players, one who even hasn't kicked a ball as yet. The fans I believe require respect and should be kept informed of basic activity within the club, other clubs do it well and are at a far lower level in the football hierarchy than town. Still after 50 years of supporting the Shaymen I wish them all the luck for the coming season. The Entertainer.

It took a fan to post the fixtures on here for me to access them.

They should be there for all to see when you click on fixtures. Not having to click on fixtures then a drop down thingy then another option etc. 

Yes, we need more info on new recruits. Lots of things just don't make sense. Real common sense things. Did DB really think that the club would sell the same amount of season tickets as last season? Surely not. DB is a shrewd man. Surely he knew that he would have e to fork out of his own pocket/the club's coffers for new recruits until the season starts and we hopefully get a few wins on board.

I still don't think it's the worst season for info though. I think it was a Conference North season and there was nothing for weeks and weeks, no kit info or anything.

As I write this, we are currently 2 - 0 down at home to Boston FC, a club again from a lower league. Unfortunately I couldn't make todays game due to other commitments. However, later tonight I will follow this up and unless there is a dramatic change to what I'm reading and listening to then the writing is on the wall!!!!! It's going to be a long cold winter. I hope i'm pleasantly surprised but somehow I dont think I will be???

I heard some positive comments about Duncan McLeod, Maher and Staunton. Erm, yes, erm I think that's about it. Despite the fact I do think his financial leadership is just what we need our club has finally become as dour as our chairman.

£340 is the cheapest way to watch every game so I'm glad that I have forked out £340

True! If I had stayed up north, I would have been in 2 minds. The team has regressed on last season, and I don’t have the blind faith in Fullarton as others do. He’s unproven at this level and shown nothing to suggest otherwise. He’s now in men’s football, supporters paying £20 a time aren’t prepared to watch him try turn a CB into a CM who needs 3 touches to get the ball out of his feet. Would happily be proved wrong, but on the 2 games I’ve seen (Stockport and today) I’m not convinced

Yes, it's Mehdi's new name. Duncan McLeod was the lead character in Highlander.
