  1. Really disappointed as I thought with our 2 strikers finally fit this was going to be the kick-start to our season. Given how poor Wealdstone were, it surely would have been if we'd have kept 11 men on the pitch. But no manager can prepare for a 3rd minute red card and then a few minutes later the loss of your running striker, especially with a bench full of youth team players. Wild got it spot on though. Sit tight, ask the midfield to work extra hard, close any gaps and look to capitalise on mistakes. Tired in the second half and Williams' red killed it, but if Hyde scores the bes

  2. I browse other teams forums fairly regularly, mainly because there isn't enough good NL content out there, but this is the first time I've felt compelled to create a profile to post. I've never seen a fan come on another team's forum just to slag off their own player(!) who's out on loan. We are not all like Jay! Yes, being realistic, Nyal isn't the best striker in the world and we wouldn't be loaning him out to a fellow club in our league if he was in-favour, but he's certainly not a lost cause. He played a significant part in our NLN title winning season and did enough last seaso

  7. I really dont think we should be referring to the lad as a "Donkey", thats just downright bloody rude!!! The lad hasnt kicked a ball for us and some are writing him off. Although the majority of his senior career is in the league below us, he's racked up 73 games and scored 14 goals, so he's basically a 1 in 5 man. As it stands that puts him up there with what we've achieved this season. But for gods sake lets at least give him the benefit of the doubt before we condemn him to our list of might have beens.

  10. RIP Brian. Great friend and much valued SDS member in the 90's and right up until the end of HTFC when unfortunately Brian stopped attending games as southern forays became few and far between. Some of his beer trails were legendary and many other friendships have formed in the back of these meetings. Miss you big guy.

  11. I already knew from a post that Johnny Meynell made in a previous year that three ex-Town players were KIA during WW1, but in researching for ShaymenOnline it feels like I got to know the players more intimately than you'd expect given that we're talking about 100 years ago. I'd read about their performances, their injuries, their moves to other clubs, sometimes back again, not to mention the letters from fans, both good and bad, and even in some cases about the players getting married and having kids. Above is the cutting that appeared in the Halifax Evening Courier on Wednesday 23 Febru

  13. They were so good they were beaten at home by Radcliffe Borough and Matlock Town, and been held by Southport and Morpeth. I don't disagree with you saying they're not a typical glue league side - on paper - but how come we're the only ones who struggled to get a result? If Matlock fecking Town can beat them, then if we have any aspirations to be anything other than a National North team next season, so should we have. It's that simple and there are zero excuses. The manager and the players have to do better. If we'd lost after an almighty tussle with SS putting in a Herculean cup-tie effo

  14. A Stockport fan says he's crap. Must be true. You could survey all Town fans and every player we've had over the last 10 years would be called crap by at least a handful of them, even Vardy. I don't understand the mentality of some people, call me negative for saying we're average, then write a player off before he's even played a game for us.

  15. He’s either a 10/10 or a 3/10 according to county fans. My guess is he will be a 10/10 while on loan. We’ll sign him permanently and he’ll revert to a 3/10.

  17. I've already posted this on another platform, but I was really saddened to hear of the passing of former Halifax Town legend Les Massie. He had, of course, made his name with Huddersfield and partnered a certain Denis Law in his early days. Les was well before my time, though I can share a story that always makes me smile. When I'd written my first book, a 31-year history of the club 1968-1999 (Ball To Lillis) my publisher wanted me to get two former players to attend a book signing session at WH Smith, Halifax. I put forward the names of Les Massie and Bill Atkins, but when he asked me to con

  20. This side needs a couple of wins. Confidence will flow back and all this talk about poor passing and choosing the wrong ball etc will disappear. There are some good players in this team, much better than last year, and with the confidence some results will bring we will rock teams. Mr Woodwork will start knocking them in rather than back out. Long distance shots will fly in and knees and backsides will find their scoring touch. Relax, Believe.

  22. Either way it’s alright slagging King off but he’s put 100% into every game and he’s been our best player. I like how he plays and he puts some lovely crosses in. Every player has a tackle like that in them majority of the time it’s just good King doesn’t really do that too often. King just needs to learn to stop arguing and giving silly fouls away but to slag him off over a challenge where he clearly won the ball and was slightly aggressive Get a ****ing grip

  30. I kind of enjoyed last nights game!!!! Strange really, but I thought they were 2 very evenly matched teams. I dont want to do the analysis of the game or I'd burst into tears, we know we need a goal scorer, Hyde is having the energy drained out of him with every passing game, he desperately needs that goal or his confidence will be zero. The major problem I'm having at the moment is this:- I dont feel any affiliation if thats the correct word, towards the new players. We've had no personal contact with them or vice versa, so watching this bunch of lads on the TV, it's hard to feel any connecti

  34. Yes. He attended Wimbledon's first ever league match, and struck up a friendship with Maggott, myself and a few others at the game. He kept turning up during that season, and became good friends with quite a few Town fans as time went on. The reason he stopped coming was medical, I believe. Severe arthritis, which the doctors refused to operate on due to his weight. He could have slimmed, but seemed to choose not to for whatever reason. Fat and sweaty maybe, but I enjoyed his company, none better than in a Brighton pub when he entered us into a football quiz. The topic was B & H Albio

  37. Jamie gave an absolute masterclass in last night game with Leeds at Elland Rd. 2 goal assists and his obligatory goal before leaving the pitch on 85mins. We've always know of his predatory skills and its a shame England didnt use him better when he was part of the set up, but he seems to be taking it to a whole new level these days. It's just such a pleasure to know that our club played a part in his development, Brendan Rogers and Jamie seem to have a fantastic relationship and long may it continue. I would love to see Leicester win the title again, it would be a real kick in the bolax to the

  42. If I were to vote, I would not vote for a British non-domicile regardless of whether he is a working class lad from Stevenage, done well. Motor racing which is arguably a sport is like cricket, more tests/races than ever before so the records tumble like never before. Jimmy Anderson broke the record for most test wickets for a pace bowler last summer. Is he the best ever? Is Rooney the greatest ever England striker as he has most goals? The modern cult of celebrity means the media 'legendise' the latest record breaker, many of whom have little claim to be spoken of in such terms

  44. That's a brilliant interview from Wild. I think he's answered all the main things that are on fans minds at the moment. That is, our need for another striker, and why Danns has been brought in. He's been open and honest, so fair play. It is worth reminding ourselves of the mumbo jumbo and unforthcoming interviews that Fullerton used to give. At least Wild gives us some plain speaking.

  47. Behaviour is the main issue here. I'm no fan if this government but any government is on a hiding to nothing with this. It is difficult to balance economy v health, especially when a poor economy will have a more detrimental effect on our health in the longer term. We've tried the hearts and minds approach and it's failed, so I'm afraid it's martial law for me. I've followed the rules all the way through but people have been too keen to get down the pub or go on holiday. I've had enough of this now, and we need something radical to break the infection chain.
