  1. Last night dj asked me to update his situation on the forum, he has not been on here as he is in excruciating pain and football is the last thing on his mind he is having constant visits with medics and they have managed to bring forward his operation from the back end of the year to 30/09/20 when he will then have to have a 4 day stay in hospital. He is therefore hoping that this corvid virus does not interfere with this date and the op can go ahead. I obviously wished him all the best from each and everyone of us and he asked for his privacy to be respected for the next couple of weeks until

  4. Just to clear something up here in general. Why do so many people feel compelled to try and always put others down on this site. I have had several responses to my comments made last night about claiming my money back this time around should this season go tits up, which it still may very well do. Yet people come on these threads belittling this as if to try and say I'm out of order!! The club put a statement out, contained in that statement was a nigh on plea for people to buy their S/T, putting pressure on by using the tactic of we may not get into games without one. So, for the last couple

  5. Get the season under way, get the streaming under way and you never know we might actually not be as bad off as what people think we might. I know it’s all a bit crap not being able to go to the game but on the bright side there are plenty of Shaymen that live far and wide that can’t travel to games because of the distance and cost involved, but they may well pay for streaming and this could give us an unexpected cash boost, you never know. For me it’s onwards and upwards, the hopes for the new season starts here, and now we have streaming, no shopping or anything else the family think I’ll b

  7. It comes a time to leave this brilliant club. The memories are too much to mention. The penalty shootouts, the promotion, the playoffs but best of all lifting the FA trophy at Wembley in front of so many Halifax fans beats it all. These moments will live with me for the rest of my life. I would like to thank the Chairman David Bossomworth who has always treated me fairly and with respect. Louisa Green who I have developed a brilliant working relationship and friendship over the years. Big thanks to Ben and Tony Allen the secretary and the voluntary media staff who over the years have been

  8. As was apparently the case with Kosylo, however a compromise was found to get him in training more. I just feel this is a sad way for Brown's time at the club to come to an end. He has been a fantastic servant to us for years and hope that his time here isn't tainted by potentially incorrect assumptions about him.

  10. I don't like to see any club go bust, but I can vividly remember some Macclesfield players and supporters celebrating like they'd just won the cup as their 1-1 draw at the Shay got us relegated a few seasons ago. Macc have died with a debt of just over £500,000. It's a sobering thought that just one week's wage from one top Manchester City player and one from United would pay that off. The game has gone crazy with far too much money at the top level while clubs lower down like Bury and Macclesfield are collapsing.

  12. Good luck to him. I liked him, not the best player we ever had, but always played with a smile on his face and he gave us 100%. I will always back the players that put the effort in and I can't fault JBW on that front.

  15. He’s positive, straight to the point and talks honest sense which reflects positively on the football club. I’d prefer that to someone who complains about budgets, too many games or just talks about pyramids of emotions, ducks swimming and application and dedication. Hes straight talking, young and enthusiastic with a great future in the game. I’m not sure what the issue is personally but each to their own.

  16. Having bought a season ticket, either free streaming for home matches or the season ticket being held over until next season would be ok for me. I do not attend many away matches these days, the long journeys are the problem for me but if I could pay £10.00 to watch matches I would hope to watch every game. As for demanding my money back for my season ticket, we all knew the risk that the season would not start or we would not be allowed in when we bought them. Mass demands for return of season ticket money could put the clubs future at risk from something out of their control. I would hope

  21. I personally can't really afford to let the club just have my season ticket money for no goods in return. My ideal solution would be my season ticket deferred to next season, then id be happy to pay a tenner a streamed game, plus on home days I'd chuck another tenner to the supporters club.

  22. It's not even a party political issue for me. It's about Johnson and those he chose to surround himself with (and the reasons they're there). I can disagree ideologically with Conservatives but am grown up to recognise that some of them are competent and thoughtful individuals. I may not agree with their direction of travel on issues like tax and immigration, but I can see the logic to what they do. There's a theme, a consistency of approach. There were and are several Tory politicians who would have done a better job. May being one of them. For all of her trials and tribulations over Brex

  23. Cannot understand all the drama about Brown leaving In the cold light of day he wanted more money for an extra day,s work (not an unreasonable request) The management made a financial decision that a 30 year old centre back with recent injury problems and gradually losing pace was not a good investment Browny quite rightly considered his options found a club willing to pay his financial demands regardless of location and moved on. In view of the latest virus News re crowds Town appears to have come out of the affair financially on top Fans quite rightly appreciate his tim

  24. Brown wasn’t a servant, he played for money like all players but no doubt loved the club. Looks like he wanted more of the stuff and now he has left and has a hell of a commute from Liverpool to York. Wild has to weigh things up and was prepared to keep him but not at any cost. Brown comes with a risk of injury and loss of form. Season before last he was brilliant when he stayed fit. Not quite the same last season and now wrong side of 30. On balance Wild obviously thinks he can do better. He is the manager, it’s his call and that’s how it should be coz if he messes up it’s his head on the lin

  25. I think some people have “ short “ memories , when PW arrived at the Shay as I recall one of his early decisions was to give MB an extended contract. We do not and probably will never know what the point of principle is , suffice to say that MB is no longer our player and that our future is in PWs hands in whom I have faith. Managers are employed to manage and that’s what PW has done.

  26. Yep, but Pete Wild is the manager and it's upto him to run his team and squad as he sees fit. Brown gave 5 years at a club where players usually do 1-2 and disappear again. I thank him and he's a great lad but it's a new manager, his summer to stamp his mark on the club and if Brown who IMO is quite slow, injury prone and on a decent whack has to go then so be it. Players come and go. That's just football.

  31. When things go wrong, supporters advocate for restrictions, wage caps, etc. When things are going well, those same supporters advocate for no restrictions, no wage caps, etc. You'll never be able to please everyone. At a bare minimum, promotion and participation in the play-offs should be conditional on each club being able to demonstrate that all payments to HMRC were made on time and in full over the previous 24 months at least. I see no reason why a club should be allowed to use public money to further their own interests, above the interests of other clubs that make their pa

  32. Lunatics are running the asylum. It’s about time WE as fans were allowed to be treat as adults ( it seems to have worked in Sweden). The stadium is out in the fresh air. We will have masks on. Bar/ shop is shut. All we need to do is socially distance going to loo and going in and out. PLEASE let this lunacy stop. I don’t need a luminous Neanderthal that can’t string two words together telling me where I can sit and measuring two metres. Trust is a massive issue and we as the public are being treat like idiots. It would have helped if we had some consistency across the country, b

  33. The budget is either not as low as a lot believe it to be or is being extremely well managed, lets hope a bit of both, as we have taken on the Bradford Bulls Strength and conditioning trainer 2 days per week. This is something which look badly lacking last season, all looking good.

  34. If Wild hasn’t already proved himself by getting a team of relegation favourites into the play offs then I don’t know what else he has to do. The way the guy speaks, motivates and coaches has brought the best crop of players in a long time. The club should be thinking of negotiating a longer deal with PW and at least talking about it. Success this season will be dependent on how the players gel in matches. The quality is there, fitness is being worked on, can they create and score goals and can they defend. Time will tell.

  37. If your not happy then dont buy. The way i see it the club are simply saying that they need time to plan. In order to do so they require to know how many definate (ST holders) spectators they need to plan for in the stadium. No one is under pressure to buy imo, yes its a risk but thats not the clubs fault and each individual can weigh it up as they wish.

  38. You wont believe this Bollox but I went to our local Chinese takeaway last night and who was in front of me in the queue Cliff. The man behind the counter said to Cliff "sing me that song and you can have your meal for free". Cliff said "which song". The Chinese man said " itchy sore fanny". Cliff said "I don't do one called that, how does it go". The Chinese man sang " itchy sore fanny we dont talk anymore".

  40. They should not have started this season. I said back in March that the 2019/20 season should be completed over the summer as restrictions allowed (behind closed doors if necessary), and that 2020/21 should be delayed indefinitely, maybe even skipped, until society could get back to some sort of normal. Clubs at this level cannot function without supporters, it took certain people almost a decade to learn that fact, seems that others still haven't. They should have furloughed everyone, mothballed the clubs and sat it out, paying off players as it became necessary. We were always going to

  47. Simply not true. Child Benefit is only paid in respect of kids who live abroad if those kids live in the EEA, and the parent in the UK is still responsible for their care (think of seasonal fruit pickers, etc.). There will be very few individuals granted asylum who are citizens of an EEA country, in fact I doubt there'll be even a single one, as EEA countries are considered safe countries under UK asylum laws. It's amazing how people's views are reinforced by false news, to the point where they themselves start peddling the bollox, converting others to the same opinion. You
