  1. DJ would like me ( Mrs Funky) to say a big thank you to the guys on The Forum for their amusing and good luck messages. He'd also like to thank Pete Wild,the lovely Louisa,Chadders,and Steve Lanzo for taking time out for DJ, it was greatly appreciated. I have just been packing his his bag for the hospital and guess what i've found,? you've guessed it, a large stash of Digestive biscuits, old habits die hard. I now know what this club means to DJ and you, the loyal fans,so GOOD LUCK for Saturday!!

  2. Before commentating on today’s streaming and game I have to declare I have self isolating since March 7th except visits to hospital and doctors and collecting my season ticket seat allocation plus 4 visits to Tesco. So perhaps my views are biased towards the anticipation of witnessing a game of football involving FC Halifax Town Having never used streaming before I was more than happy with the coverage and commentary of the game despite the penalty coverage cock up. Some users far more technical minded than me have suggested various changes to the streaming which will improve the offering

  3. C'mon Flea you're not comparing like for like. Your NFL subscription is a commercial product designed for supporters who can't/don't attend games (most of which will be played in another country). Town's streaming offer is a last resort attempt to allow the football club to continue to play games, together with a minimum of supporter involvement. The former will have many times more subscribers than the latter and can rely on economy of scale to spread the cost, thus reducing the per-subscriber price. It's clearly not intended as a direct replacement for season tickets and the articl

  4. Confident going into this. Why not. Just on a side note, I won't be streaming the match after Boreham Wood's shenanigans over the years regards to highlights and the media team. Bollox to them.

  6. 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

  8. I bought my £12 pass for the Woking game on Thursday. The way I see it, this is far cheaper than what I would have to shell out if I had to travel from Yorkshire to Woking, then pay to get in to the ground. And it is much less time consuming. So I am quite content. But I appreciate every Halifax fan will make their own call. At the end of the day, I just want to be able to watch my team play.

  9. Just want to ensure Bill Gates has ensured that a global audience has bandwidth to ensure the billions logging on at 7:30 to get their Shay fix? I expect that in our £9.99 bundle we have access to a match day programme, half time display by the Mixendon Milfettes, a sachet of the Paddy Roche tomato soup megamix, a scratch n sniff card to remind us of the Shay urinal experience and a pre-recorded soundtrack of stadium announcements of "Green Leader report to Stadium Control a 5 year old kid has a curly wurly out of control". Any other requests, I assume piped stadium noise of "bloody rubbish t

  14. 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

  15. I'm starting to get a bit irritated by all this talk of simply gifting money to Halifax Town and, even worse, opposition clubs. If people are feeling philanthropic then by all means give away every penny you own, but it seems to me that some are trying to build up a head of steam so as to coerce the rest of us into doing the same. I paid £12 to watch a football game. It was expensive in my opinion. The product provided was terrible and I've asked for a refund. I have no interest in Woking's financial position and I feel no compulsion to 'gift' them the money if it is refunded to me.

  17. To put it into some sort of perspective - At the start of last week Louisa would have been clocking the hours up trying to sort out the social distance bubble thing for fans. Right up to Tuesday the club were still putting all of that in to place as it needs to be ready if/when fans are allowed in. Then the club learn that the games are going to have to be streamed with no fans allowed in. That then means getting up to speed with the equipment the best they can, work out where everything goes, what each odd little button does etc... One of the pitfalls of this is that the decis

  22. Unlikely to win the league due to finances. We're only a couple of points off the play-offs during a tough opening few games and without our first-choice strikers. Our only defeat was down to a wonder-goal at Stockport. We're doing OK.

  24. Back in the day for me was 1994. My first game was Welling United at home after the West Brom cup win on Sky. My mate Scott Dinsmore persuaded me to go down, and we even painted a sheet to say "we love Barr" or something equally cringeworthy To say I was instantly hooked is an understatement. I went to the Stockport game in the FA Cup - I wasn't really a fan of the game beforehand even though I was a longstanding Everton fan by that point (maybe that's why). I have a crap memory but the experience of the Stockport game is still vivid in my mind. Not the game really but everything around

  30. It's crazy unfair but lines have to be drawn somewhere. You're not supposed to visit your gran because doing so puts her at increased risk. You're allowed to carry on working because, well, society depends on people going to work. Regards football, they had to make a decision. Had the Conference National clubs been allowed to have supporters, you'd have had supporters of League Two clubs saying what you're saying. The government is playing the odds. You know that. They know that. We all know that. We elect our government to make these decisions and, whether or not we agree with

  31. Hardly a disaster. If any abuse was aimed at the media team the individual concerned should be ashamed of themselves & apologise. To be honest the camera wander at the penalty gave me & her indoors a chuckle for several minutes, how can you take it seriously, it went in end of.

  36. 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

Sam still one of the best in the league Wing backs, both grown into the position and Senior looked good preseason no- one really troubled them so far CBs Byrne-excellent, Clarke (old) I admit I would not have given him a player contract for this season. he has IMO started far better than last season seems more confidant with speed along side him, Bradbury again excellent for young lad and went toe to toe with that Idiot Rhead, Maher very able, Jay Benn I would loan out to keep him match fit, not let us down.

  46. How many times in the past have we had a great pre-season, then turned to crap the moment the real stuff starts? We have also had several pre-seasons where we have been poor, then got off to a flyer. Results don't matter in these games. My concern is more on if we have a settled side and a known preferred XI at this point.

  48. 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.
