  1. There's lots of help and support out there but it's not available for everyone, or can be difficult for some to access right now. Maybe you just need pointing in the right direction or need a chat. Not everyone has a support network that is local. Halifax Town supporters are a community. We can do our bit to look after each other in these strange times. Need help? If you need anything, from a bog roll to help with accessing benefits, leave a brief message in this thread and maybe someone can come up trumps. Keep your post brief and personal details to a minimum - something like

  2. No reason why Fax should go belly up. The £48k p.a. rent, or whatever it is Fax are meant to pay is pittance against the prize money they won a year ago. Unless of course the money went out of the club as quickly as it came in. Without doubt there would be ramifications for FCHT should they become the sole sporting tenant at the Shay. However, it wouldnt be all bad and would have to be viewed as an opportunity rather than a hindrance. The club could forge better relationships with the council and caterers; have greater exclusivity to the facilities meaning better commercial opportunit

  3. 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!!

  4. In this strange time I have reflected how my 'special place' in life is the Shay. Distance means I don't get there as often as I would like, but when I do, it's the only place I want to be. I watch the game with football mates who I have known for decades. We talk shite for a couple of hours, bask in victory when it happens, curse the ref if it doesn't. There is nothing else like it and no memories that match it. I remember results and goals from every decade back to the seventies. I never get bored with it and one way or another, it always evokes some emotion. It's not about success, formatio

  5. Well, your support base will at least be gaining one new fan next season, as myself and the wife are expecting our first child later this year. Obviously, I'd love it to support the same side as me, but seeing as I grew up supporting my local side rather than a good side, I'd find it a bit hypocritical if he/she wasn't a Halifax fan. Be a bit unfair to go to school telling it's friends he supported a shite side from 120 miles because his Dad does. First game v Stockport on NYD? She seems to think so!

  6. However, lets remember where we were this time last year. Six registered players, moral low, a manager disliked by pretty much everyone and the bookies favourite for the drop. We extended our season into the Playoffs, but sadly came up short, but lets be clear, this hasn't been a poor season. Lets get behind Pete, let him bring in his players and have a proper pre-season to build a squad and get back at it next season. We couldn't go any further tonight, but the lads have done us proud in the last 12 months.

  7. I think under the current circumstances that its only right that we extend our very best wishes to The Prime Minister Boris Johnson. It doesn't matter what your politics are at times like these, he's a relatively young guy whose girlfriend is expecting a baby and it it proves conclusively that it doesn't matter who you are or where you live or what you do, we are all at risk. So good luck to Boris and everyone else battling this disease, and all the thanks in the world to our brilliant NHS, from the top man to the cleaners and porters, god bless them all and keep them safe.

  8. 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

  10. ... Off the pitch and after an emotional week for the club where we paid our respects in a wonderfully dignified manner to Jordan Sinnott two moments of class from yesterday epitomised to all what our club is all about Firstly Copley Primary School who were playing at half time in the schools competition donated one of their shirts to the #shirtsforjordan appeal a fantastic gesture Then after the game in the bar a young lad in a wheelchair had his day made when the gaffer and all the players chatted with him and had their pictures taken with him and the look and smile on his face

  11. 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

  12. The thing is IT'S NOT THE ****ING PAST is it? They're STILL ****ING AT IT. It's like having neighbours for years who acted as though they were better than you. They let their cat **** on your lawn and piss on your doorstep, then send you a strongly-worded letter telling you that your lawn and your doorstep is a disgrace. They're also having a sly dig about the old 3-wheeler parked outside your house. It's not the best looking car in the world but it works. Just about. They have a nice shiny new car in their driveway and they go on expensive holidays, always remembering to send you a nice postc

  13. 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

  15. Just wanted to let everyone on here know what a great idea this was, to ring some fans for a chat. I registered my 11 year old grandson for one of these and yesterday Josh Staunton rang him for a chat. He was on the phone for 25 minutes and my grandson was completely made up. He couldn't wait to ring me to tell me how it all went. Many thanks to Halifax Town and especially Josh Staunton for taking the time to spend with a young fan. We have been going to the Shay together for 5 years now and I think this will ensure that he remains a Shayman for the rest of his life.

  16. I think people may know that I am biased toward the NHS. In the past couple of weeks my dad has complained of chest and back pain. He is 90 and fairly fit, for his age. It got worse on Friday and we rang emergency services. They said it didn’t sound like cv and sent an ambulance. He’d had a heart attack. They had a slot on Friday afternoon and he had stents fitted. He is back home in front of the fire this evening with a care package in place.We are so lucky in this country to have the NHS.

  17. It really makes me uncomfortable when it turns in to a pissing contest of who can be the most respectful and do the “best act of remembrance”. This should be about a moment of reflection and celebrating Jordan’s life. It’s not about Halifax Town, it’s not about Alfreton, etc. It’s about Jordan and his family.

  18. Plus I’m loving the effort that is going in to publicising these signings. There are teasers on social media. Followed by the big reveal. Then supported by a quote giving PW’s rationale for each signing. It really gives you confidence that these are well thought out recruitments.

  19. Had a text from him the other day saying that he was chuffed to that he had received a get well card and a face mask from the club. He is still awaiting a date for the operation but this gesture cheered him up no end and he passed on his thanks to Louisa and all at the club.

  20. When I received this mysterious envelope Friday I was gobsmacked at the contents and just stared at what was in it to the amusement of Mrs Funky, what a lovely gesture from our club and really cheered me up. The contents consisted of a get well soon card and great looking FC Halifax Town Face Mask from Pete ,Louisa Chadders and all at the club and will wear with pride at my next visit to the hospital. I could not wait to get on the phone and tell other fans from Blackpool; Fleetwood, and Afc Fylde what our club had done and got many strange comments asking what I had been smoking or lockdown w

  21. At 1:15am this morning (Christmas Eve), the wife, Rachel (who some will know from games, supporters club presentations, and maybe her dad) gave birth to the rather amazing Annie Olivia. I’d be shocked if she’s (The baby) not at a match before the end of the season. Happy bloody Christmas.

  22. A couple of weeks back the usual suspects on here were having a go at the club the chairman the manager and of course other posters on this site about lack of news lack of signings too many players from last season offered contracts too many players from last year turning down those contracts too small a budget not prepared to buy a season ticket until we see who is signed not prepared to buy a season ticket until guaranteed that crowds can attend well even the most critical have to admit now .. the communication has been great .. interview

  23. Being called a pub team by supporters of a club that could travel to 90% of their own team's away games with a Trans-Pennine day return ticket. Somewhere out there is a tree working extremely hard to replenish the oxygen used by such people. They really should apologise to it.

  25. At a club like ours I don't get the 'I will only buy a season ticket if we sign....' Right now the club needs our support more than most other moments. To be honest, if you follow the Shay expecting to win something, and that's the only reason, you might need some professional help. Keep it simple, stand up and be counted when it matters. STID

  27. Well what can I say but thanks to Louisa, Chadders ,and Pete Wild, thought it was somebody having me on but what a lovely thought and once again ill say I now know why I follow the Shaymen, spent the rest of the day ringing people up and the first thing they all said no way, my Blackpool mate could not believe it and the Afc Fylde fan said I should change the tablets. We had a long chat and it was just like talking to an old friend and even Mrs Funky had a chat with him when a delivery man came to deliver a big box of biscuits which my daughters had ordered,got back in the house and Mrs Funky

  28. Let's give the man a chance. Hopefully a young and ambitious manager with coaching experience at higher levels, and also it seems, with the contacts that people on here were screaming out for. Some on here were talking about giving Collins a chance because of his experience with BCFC U21's so why not give Fullerton a chance. Welcome to the club Jamie, some people will be quick to judge, but I hope the majority will back you to the hilt and wish you well

  29. Sadly the ignorant and stupid are the only ones that remain to support HRLFC. Most think they helped us out by moving in, instead their failure to honour any promises regarding paying their share of the development costs put us out of business. How any Halifax Town fan can ever feel any sorrow for the decline of this club is beyond me. They tried to push us out of the stadium during my time on the Shay Stadium Trust, and then again on reformation of the new club. They tried to buy the stadium while lying about not knowing anything about it. Those are just the headlines. I c

  30. It's ridiculous isn't it and it days like this that make me question my love for the beautiful game. I'm excited about going to Nuneaton FFS. Nobody should ever be excited about going to a place that is the B@stard child of a drunken threeway between Birmingham , Coventry and Leicester without inherting any of the their very few redeeming qualities. A drab ground on an industrial estate and a day that is undoubtedly going to be tarnished by a couple of dozen broken condoms dressed in Stone Island doing a high school rendition of The Firm. Then i realise that i get to put my Blue and White

  34. As a sponsor of the 3rd shirt I can confirm that the agreement is equal number of games for 2nd and 3rd shirt throughout the season. Therefore, my preference would be the 3rd shirt I've just agreed to sponsor the home shirt for next season so hopefully we'll get a home tie first in the League 2 playoffs

  35. After speaking to the club today there will not be another football card at the moment, the next one has been put on the backburner for a while. The club, and especially the Manager has asked if anyone has any spare cash, the cut outs for the BW game is the way they would like you to go. BW dont get any money from our sales and the club take the majority of the money from each cut out. Pete Wild has said as strange as it may be he would love the players to see all FCHT's allocated seats completely full of faces. The club have been given 300 seats and if we could fill them the likelihood is we

  39. Halesowen fan here in peace. I travel home and away following the Yeltz and have done for 5 years, apart from when we play neighbours Stourbridge (when a few chavs turn up) I've never seen any trouble with our fans so I'm not sure where the above stories come from - ive never seen trouble. We're regarded by most as a friendly-but noisy lot, we travel well and we will on the 8th. The club has had its troubles off the field for a few years with poor owners but the club is in fantastic hands and we're certainly on an upward curve. Look forward to visiting your place soon. #uptheyeltz

The child and adult couldn't get to one of the events, so Josh offered to try and get one. He did and to myself and the child and adult surprise he turned up at their address to hand this over, even came in and had photos and a chat with the child. Credit where credit is due...

  46. The 3 gents who have run our club over the past 11 years deserve full credit for all their efforts. They have been a breath of fresh air in our chequered existence. In my view it will be a sorry day when the remaining 2 decide to call it a day. Yes they have made mistakes, but so have we all in this period.

  47. The "Heath out" brigade loved it last night. The team was playing well and conceded late on. Within seconds of that goal "Heath out, Heath out" The team could have given up like the outers did. They are made of better stuff than that and managed to get a deserved equaliser. Dover then snatched it at the death and the "Heath out, Heath out" started again. Final whistle seconds later and boos were the order of the day. That team did not deserve booing off at all. For me it's not the football that's turning me off attending The Shay, believe me I have seen far worse over the last 40 years, its th

He says he never said he supports the IRA. We have to take his word on that. He's here to manage our football club, I'm sure he's sick to death of all the controversy. Let's get behind him.
