    Direct from a free kick. Surely you can’t have forgotten Clarke’s from his own half a few weeks ago!

    Hi guys and giris, Quick break in the Brexit back-and-forth shall we call it? The minutes applause observed last Saturday for the late Peter Downsborough.

    Well it seems the majority of the working class are all united in wanting Brexit. Its the industrial towns and cities, most Northern, that have the strongest leave pull. Its the rich with fingers in pies and contacts (like Gina Miller) who are hell bent on remaining. The EU works for those at the top, however the noise from those at the bottom is it isnt working for them. The few are benefitting from the many. Those at the top however dont want to listen to those at the bottom that want to leave and have used their power, money and influence to cause havoc. We voted to leave. Rightly or wrongly that was the vote. I have doubts myself, however the people clearly gave their voice and it should be acted upon and resource should have been on the best possible exit, instead of trying to thwart it.

    I remember watching England versus Brazil in May 1987 and was behind the goal opposite where they come out from the dressing room...... In a section to the left of us there was a group of about 50 Brazilian fans ALL with some kind of drum or bongo....it was hell on earth especially after having been on the booze in London from 10.00 am. How do that lot manage to get in ? And where did they get their bongo's from? We have one little drum that generates a great atmosphere...but there's always one person who's never happy !!

    Been busy so not updated these graphs for a couple of weeks, but here we are after the Chorley and Boreham Wood games. Surprisingly we're still top after only 1 point from those 2 games, though only on goal difference. This league is still incredibly open at the moment, any of the top half could go on a good run over 4/5 games and find themselves challenging the top 3.

    Having seen the Bulgarian performance, the main group wanting that team banned from all competitions would be the Bulgarian football-watching public.

    That's what they've said. I think Queen's Brian May summed it up pretty well today: I’m dreaming of a Brexit-free Christmas… I wonder if I’m the only one praying tonight for a miracle which will make Brexit, deal or no deal, simply go away…. ? The legacy of the vain, arrogant and badly-advised David Cameron was a referendum which never should have happened. He made the people of this country vote on an issue they knew NOTHING about. Of a 70% turnout, 52% voted to break away from Europe. That’s roughly 37% of the electorate. And the result was not even legally binding. But on the basis of that fragile outcome, successive leaders, fearful and hungry for power, have attempted to carry out the wishes of that 37%, pretending that they were serving democracy and the “will of the people“. The result is this country attempting to make the stupidest move it has ever made. At this moment we are still part of one of the most powerful alliances in the entire world, a bond which has given us prosperity, AND PEACE, for the last 40 years. But if Brexit happens, we go back in time to being a very small island, feeble in natural resources, and alone in a vast ocean of competitive economics. BREXIT has given us three years of misery and chaos, and still there is no relief in sight. Just to be clear, this process does not represent democracy as we know it in this country. In British democracy we elect our representatives to sit in Parliament, and through decent debate, make the right decisions for us all. A referendum is not part of that democratic process. Recent polls have shown that, in a second referendum, leaving would be supported by even less than 37% of the population. From where I sit, it’s baffling. I don’t know a single person who thinks that the Brexit on offer is a good idea. I would give a lot for the chance to go and sit with those guys in Europe, and hammer out the deal that David Cameron failed to secure – to keep us in the powerful international club, but deliver what we want - what we need. A deal to stay, though it may be difficult, offers so many chances for mutual benefits. Like a marriage. Divorce is always messy and wasteful. A MIRACLE, please. The door is still open. OK folks - tell me I’m wrong ! Bri

    Because that has been his and the Labours default stance - its to delay, frustrate and stop Brexit at every turn. Corbyn isnt interested in if we leave or not, its just a case of opposing whatever the opposition does. Its a tact he has adopted since day one of everything he has ever done. He doesn’t want a stable Tory government or solutions as it doesn’t fit his agenda of being a fighter for the people. I still stand by the fact that Brexit could easily be both the worst or best thing to happen to us. There are too many unknowns, however I do believe that if we had spent the last three years giving a united front in getting the best deal on the table we would be stronger as a result. If this current deal is poor ask yourself if all the time wasted by the remainers throwing every spanner into the mix possible has helped or hindered this. This deal sounds far from great however it is where we are at because we have had these SJW kicking off and using underhand tactics to stop the result of the vote. A lot like Extinction Rebelion, I can see merit in their cause, however the behaviour and tactics used means that they are haemorrhaging more and more support each day. The majority of people are pissed off with the elitist remainers thinking they know best. If there wasn't as much arrogance running up to the vote then maybe the result would have been different. We are here due to Cameron’s arrogance in thinking we would all vote to remain to start with, followed by the elite refusing to actually knuckle down and get on with getting the best deal possible. There needs to be a full overhaul of parliament after Brexit as the current leaders and opposition have shown they simply not fit for purpose.

    It will be Salford who get the bye then they will draw the lowest ranked team in round two at home then Manchester United in round 3 . Heard that from a friend who was doing some electrical work at FA Headquarters , overheard a phone call with the words Salford , Man United , Magic ,FA Cup, Romance , Giggs ,Neville , Scholes , Butt, BBC , BT, Bidding War, Prime Time , TV. Motson , Creaming , Himself.

    Been trying to think about the answer to this all evening When was the last time we scored direct from a free kick? When was the last time we were awarded a penalty at the Shay. Now the last free kick i remember was Kossy against Gateshead at home 2 years back. As for the penalty at home. Southwell i guess near the start of last season. Seems an age since we last had one at home We just never seem to score those 20 to 25 yard free kicks

    Not saying Rodney is the best striker around but i do feel he ( or someone similar) could be the difference between getting out of this league or not. Great interview by wild, very honest,no silly talk or phrases. Good to know about the games we play during the weeks,bradford,Fleetwood etc.

    The bottom line is - Did more people vote to leave or to remain? Theres three camps on this issue - Brexiters that want out Remainers that want in Everyone else, myself included, who have got to the point that they just want it dealt with. Its like trying to convince a Muslin to convert to Christianity or vice versa here with the leave and remainers. Neither side is going to change position enough, or in enough numbers, to make it work where everyone is happy. The vote was had, people voted to leave. 99% of people are worried about their jobs, their livelihoods and just want an end to all this BS. 1% keep dragging it out. I changed my mind three times up to the vote and had no major leaning either way on staying or going. If there was a revote now it would be 100% leave, simply because I dont believe the action of remainers in the past three years has been palatable and their spanner throwing has weakened our nations hand. The EU arent ironically the problem, its our own MPs. To touch on what Chris replied to earlier as well, yes all this is on that toad Cameron’s head. This is why the Tory’s can never be trusted because they are out of touch. The exact second Corbyn goes, Labour become attractive again. Under him however, look how the popularity for the party has plummeted.

    It's the old Brexit deal that May said no British Prime Minister would ever sign up to. The much-hated backstop was introduced in order to make the deal (almost) compatible with the Belfast (Good Friday) Agreement. Removing the backstop simply takes us back to the original deal and gives the EU everything they wanted - a complete capitulation which the papers are helping Boris sell as a victory. A border in the Irish Sea effectively breaks up the UK customs zone and pushes Northern Ireland closer to Ireland.

    I recall that being an issue too, however unless Im mixing up players he went back to the same club we signed him from a couple of months after signing for us who were a league below? Granted at the time off field we didnt have much of a step up so it could have been a case of better development in stepping back.

    I'm interested to see how we play in a cup tie with both teams technically more likely to go for the win. This should result in a very different game plan from Harrogate in particular.

    We're also still waiting for the Conservative's inquiry into Islamophobia, the one that Johnson and Javid so publicly committed to hold at the leadership debate (the one, incidentally that was downgraded to a 'general investigation' into abuse about a fortnight later).

    The only incident I'm aware of that Corbyn was present at was the Wadsworth incident. Marc Wadsworth was the heckler. Ruth Smeeth was the MP who was the target of his abuse. He didn't see his allegation of her colluding with the media as being anti-semitic. The party clearly disagreed. Wadsworth was investigated in accordance with due process and expelled from the party. Just as all of those found guilty of bringing it into disrepute through anti-semitic behaviour are. His expulsion was welcomed by the Jewish Labour Movement and the Board of Deputies of British Jews. There are undoubtedly anti-semites in the Labour Party. Many blur the line between criticism of Israel and anti-semitic abuse. Some, I suspect, don't realise the lines they cross. Labour don't have a monopoly on that. The overwhelming majority of Labour members abhor such behaviour. So Labour do have a leader who is 100% against intolerance of any race or religion and are a party who will kick out anti-semitic members.

    Atmosphere definitely gone downhill since all the young uns started standing at the bottom of the stand rather than the back
  45. 1 point
    Biggest problem is that those who chant now stand at the front, where there’s no roof to carry the acoustics, when it’s easier to hear people behind you than as far in front of you as possible, and then start much less because others not being able to join in knocks onto them not trying as much. It means the top centre, where sound’s going to dissipate best, is sparse and few stand there who want to get an atmosphere going.

    No chance. Health and safety. They would have to have more stewards too so it would cost more. In reality everything would be ok and nobody would be hurt and the fans in the Skircoat would create a better atmosphere. Rules are rules though and the club have to follow them.

    Atmosphere in The South Stand has been quite good, I have noticed that most fans were joining in until this last three home games when their has been nothing to shout about, not even a goal. I also notice them that say there is no atmosphere, they don't sing or shout, do not be frightened, join in.

    They may be fewer in numbers but taking beer onto the terraces often helps lubricate the tonsils. Have gone to watch them recently (at £21 pounds I might add!), I was impressed by all the extra stuff they put on for the fans before the match and at half time.
