Saw my Consultant Tuesday to discuss the results of the MRI, PSA, SCANS and was over the moon to find that the dreaded C was the same as it was in October so now i just have to have blood tests every three months and will visit my Consultant in July I would like to thank Pete Wild, the lovely Louisa, Chadders,Pete Lassey,Speg,Lanzo, Vinnyeknuts, Collin Canberri for taking time out and helping me through this dreadful year, a little club with a big heart, and not forgetting all the messages of support to myself from everybody on the forum. THANK YOU.

  2. My 11 year old grandson has just been informed that Nathan Clarke is going to have a zoom call with him on Monday. He is so excited. Many thanks Nathan and Halifax Town, what a fantastic thing for a young lad to experience. This is one of the reasons I love my football team.

  3. Flea - all the years I have watched us that has been the case, odd season excepted, and I first saw them in '68. We can sink to anyones level without drawing breath. But thats why we believe and support the team. 97/98 was the classic, on the verge of relegation last game of the previous season; a few tweaks and what a ride back to the FL! I follow Town and ignore the big clubs precisely because the players are grafters, earn their money, frustrate us, wind us up, make us believe, offer us hope, but above all they are human, just as fallible as you or I. I've seen us through thick and thin an

  4. What also impressed me is how we played out the last 5 minutes limiting Torquay to one attack and that came from a foul by Maher. So many teams have done that to us over the years at The Shay. Great job well done!

  5. Orient away 2 seasons ago Nathan got a tremendous reception from all the Orient fans and basically did a lap of honour after the game. He came into the supporters bar after the game to get some water and he was mobbed and had to give a speech on the microphone before they let him go! A top professional and a player and person we should be proud of and one we should try and keep at the club for as long as we can

  6. I've just watched highlights of some of last nights Premier, overpaid, diving, cheating, foreigners league games on Sky Sports news. The standard of refereeing has hit an all time low. Coupled with the farce that is VAR. Mike Dean one of the more experienced referees still doesn't know when he is being conned. Martial at Man United is the biggest cheat in the history of sport, yet game after game he gets away with diving. Another farce is penalties, that Portuguese jessie sets off does a salsa a foxtrot the hokey cokey jumps then kicks it. The goalkeeper can't move one mm of his line. Technol

  7. He hasn't been abusive at all, just a little silly, even self-deprecating. Football is about being partisan, we should feel able to enjoy a bit of light-hearted banter with opposition supporters. I find it very odd that you're this upset about the time someone was posting. Not everyone lives a 9 to 5 life.

  9. You can say what you like about this team, their faults, their frailties, but what a joy they are to watch. It's a team with identity and attacking intent. They might not be good enough to go up, yet, but give me the football PW has got this lot playing over anything we have seen since the Aspin days. They aren't perfect and they're blooming inconsistent, but they try and play the right way and win or lose, there have been few times this season where it's been dull and uninspiring, even if it has been frustrating quite often. I'd rather watch us lose playing the way we do than tryin

  12. I´m going to go the other way to everyone else and say we need to do the cheap season ticket for 3 years to get the fans back in and sell 1500 instead of the 350 like last season, it brought so much good will and will encourage fans to support the team then run goalometer etc you will get a better response.

  13. I think now is the time for Mr b to do a bit more for the supporters if needing financial support. at the end of the day, the business is a privately owned limited company. There has never been a clear indication of what monies the directors have put in so the supporters can't be expected to once again donate. I think it's time a share scheme was introduced so supporters actually get something in return for any donation. A different class of share can be introduced to maintain Mr b's overall control.

  15. Interestingly, I had a business call today with a chap and in conversation he asked where I was from and assumed I was a Leeds Utd supporter, when I told him that I was in fact a fan of Halifax Town he was very complimentary. It turns out that in his spare time he is a sports photographer and mainly covers non-league football, Nuneaton Borough being his home team. We had a great chat about the merits of non-league football and what it really means to be a fan of a club. He had been to the Shay a few seasons back and was very impressed with how friendly and welcoming the staff were and he had e

  18. I cant be the only person who thinks Gary Linaker has become a complete T--t these days?? I used to be a fan/admirer of his, decent player, great goal scorer, England legend, but these days he's a T--t. Making jokes about having his £1.3 million pay cut when the Goverment announce TV licence increases isnt really funny. People are on the bread line, people are starving, the over 75's will no longer get a free licence and People like him, living in their ivory towers think it's ok to crack jokes. Added to all his other recent crap I really cant stand the bloke these days. Perhaps he should take

  21. Heres some stats - Halifax returned to the National for the 2017-18 season, having won promotion from the Conference North. They became the smallest and most tinpot team to ever feature in the National. Hartlepool joined the National for the 2017-18 season, after hell froze over, and they were cruelly robbed on 46 consecutive matches, making them the biggest club in the world to ever feature in the National. Since then the greatest club ever have got 203 points from 150 National games. Sine then the most tinpot club ever have got just 199 points from 149 National games.

  22. Is it any wonder Halifax is a sporting desert. We are now in the position of having no municipal swimming pool a disgrace for a town of its size. Add that to a half arsed sports centre, sports fields in decline & tennis courts virtually none existent it's no surprise we produce no decent sportsmen. Find some obscure minority crusade & funds appear to be found whilst community sporting facilities fall apart or don't exist, god help the future generations roaming the streets in search of something meaningful to do.

  24. If you break the rules and refuse to fulfil your fixtures, the only outcome should be expulsion. That is to say demotion down the pyramid. If such as Dover and Kings Lynn are having such severe financial problems now, that they say they cannot go on for a couple of months, even with a loan, then there must be doubts over their financial viability to function in the National League NEXT season. Two years ago, Gateshead made a sensible decision when faced with financial issues. They opted VOLUNTARILY to ask for relegation, and dropped down in to National North. They now seem to be at a leve

  25. Great result last night, I'm so pleased for all the staff who have come in for some stick recently. It really just shows what a weird league this is from one game to the next, but, and I'm not blowing my own trumpet here, I did say I had a feeling that we would win!!! 😛. I totally enjoyed the BT Coverage of the game, and much as I cant do with that knobhead Adam Virgo I have to be honest and say that I thought both commentators were very complimentary about Town in their Pre and early match comments. But as PW said in the Pre-match interview, the reason the cameras were there was to see Torqua

  27. Really hope the season continues, I know we would all much rather be in the grounds, but its better watching the game via a stream than not having the season at all. Yes there are more serious issues at thr moment, but I and I am sure many others need to watch our football team as we don't have much else to look forward to!

  33. Bottom Barnet to Top Torquay , how do you explain that . Absolutely brilliant , Earing what a player , King zero to hero , the lot of them showed so much passion and commitment , what a superb performance and add the fact the ref did all he could to give them the points and Lemon Head Evans didn't score . Said on commentary last time we won there Jon Shaw scored 2 . The beer is going down well tonight.

  34. That was brilliant. Most of my memories of Torquay away are waiting up as a kid when this was always a Saturday night fixture to wait for the result on MOTD, which was usually Torquay United 1/2/3 Halifax Town 0. The worst was crying myself to sleep when we lost there 2-0 midweek in April 71 to end our promotion hopes from Div. 3. Love the Town.

A bit like the athletics track at Spring Hall which only has 6 lanes instead of 8. Why don't we ever do things properly instead of the shambolic efforts we always seem to end up with?
