  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. 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

  8. I'd say watching on my monitor that Yeovil did indeed dominate possession but we had the best chances to win the match.

  9. Solid point. Yeovil better on the ball but we created far more chances on the counter. Poor goal to give away but a draw a fair result. My first streaming match, and although not as good as being in the ground l did enjoy a decent competitive match and we nearly had a good scrap towards the end of the game

  10. There are many ways to be prudent, the best I can think of is to invest in something that will grow. In football terms Vardy and Gregory were great examples. Roberts and Liam Hogan, similar but no cash.. Gardner of course and Judas Tuton. The point is, without backing and risk taking we wouldn't have had the financial cushion to eat into. We only spent the money because we had made good decisions to acquire it in the first place. How many other small, no hope non league clubs can claim the same track record? Let's not underestimate what got us to a point of financial stability that stands out

  11. When Halifax Town AFC became a thing, supporters of Halifax NUFC (later RLFC) who were attending the club's 1911 AGM immediately demanded that their board make no accommodation for the upstart new club. This was on the back of one of the greatest betrayals in rugby league history, that of Manningham FC, the Northern Union's first champions, walking away from the game to become Bradford City FC. Then, to every West Riding rugby supporter's horror, BPA turned away from rugby to embrace soccer as well, though this further act of betrayal did at least see the founding of Bradford Northern (now Bra

  12. Agree. Seems alot of people at every opportunity want us to keep giving the club money. I bought my season ticket and pay for away streaming so ive paid enough. Plus i contributed to the play off push snd paid for my son to be a mascot last season. Not every penny we have should go towards the club, i didn't pay £12 for the stream yesterday but took my 3 kids out for a dessert today and put it towards that, money well spent.

  13. Under Fullerton I was bored, the play was awful and I didn’t want to watch us. I’ve really enjoyed watching us so far this season and if we’d have got these results against the 5 teams tipped for relegation I’d be concerned. As it happens our first 6 games are against 5 of the favourites for the league and Woking who were 4th before today.

  16. Shame for both really, as when fit and able to consistently get games under their belts they are quality assets at this level, never mind the one below. I hope they are both back in action sooner rather than later. Two players who should be fondly and warmly remembered here.

  17. I thought Gold replacing Silva would be a Steel and a Cast Iron signing. But Gold hasn't shown his metal. Its Lead to us wasting a few Coppers, but never mind Bosomworth has plenty of Brass. Gold hasn't scored yet and should be Plat in um. This is Ore full isn't it.

  19. Oh this gets on my bloody bits. A public radio station in Somerset has the resources to send someone halfway across the country up to commentate on the game but our local public radio station doesn't? Either the funding is distorted and not every area gets enough to cover the National League, or Radio Leeds knowingly chooses to spend it on other things. Either way it's a disgrace. If there's a silver lining to seeing the TV Licence scrapped, it's the knowledge that Radio Leeds would go off air. Useless *****.

  20. But unfortunately the streaming was crap. I am in the Hoddie camp I feel the forum is turning into a fund raising forum instead of football forum, I was directly asked to give my refund for the stream to the supporters fund for the Shay and as I have stated previously without a clear and transparent statement of affairs from the club I feel I give enough.

  21. I also have a refund coming..planning to top it up to 20 quid then give 10 to Woking and 10 to town good for whoever agrees to do the refund ..but I don’t want Woking to suffer .. we need all the clubs to survive ... I just want them provide a good service .. we need people watching !!!

  28. Can we just all appreciate how good Jeff king is this season. He’s immense. We look absolutely solid but we lack upfront and it’ll be so good to have Stenson and Hyde back. Allen and Omotayo just run around and don’t seem to know where to be. We actually try play football and it’s such a quick transaction of us getting back and defending too

  29. The offside rule needs to be changed so that if any part of your body is onside, then you are just that, onside. You celebrate a goal now only to find out that your big toe is offside so it doesn't count is absolute crazy, and It also causes havoc in the stands as it irritates the supporters.

  32. Easy to say we “are rinsing” fans. The Dagenham stream I believe gave you access for a month. For £9.99. Meaning you got the Barnet game as well. The Stockport game was £7:50 The Boreham game was £9.99 and the worst stream, gave me headache. Woking is £12 it’s all swings and roundabouts. If you don’t have a code and have to pay 9.99 for the game. It’s pretty simple. Don’t pay £9.99. I don’t get why folk are still popping on at the club over the stream fee etc. If we hadn’t of had the cameras fitted. Folk would of been moaning that we are “behind” other teams etc etc.

  34. Summerfield is a class act, as will Senior be! So glad to see Earing come good as was impressed with him last close season. As others have said King / Williams or the wing back set up in general suits and we are living it! Just enjoying one touch, confident knocks in middle of the park and showing intent. Hoping Hyde is the missing piece (goals) but so far so good.

  37. think we are relying a little too much on waiting for the appearance of our 2 original strikers who have been unable to play as yet. There are other good players in our squad who could well fill the void in the mean time. I can think of a few who have converted from defence into attack. One who springs to mind at our level was Simon Ainge. What about a current player who has the ability? Nail Maher? Sat on the bench tonight, has a good turn of pace & can shoot. Waiting for the abuse

  38. A decent point. Johnson at fault for their goal, but did brilliant for the double/triple save. He wins us far more points than he costs us and I would hope we get him tied down on a new contract before the end of the season. Senior looks decent mostly, but is a young lad and can only get better. King was outstanding in the first half especially, and was my MOTM. Allen worked his arse off, and I think would work well alongside Hyde until Stenson is back. I also think Gevaro is perhaps worth a years contract to be our 4th striker. Gold can go for me. We should have been 3-0 up and

  41. He’s apparently playing for them tonight so he can keep his registration with them, and will then sign for us and be loaned back out. I assume that will be a 2 year deal. Seems like a good move all around, another young prospect who is out getting first team football to develop (hoping we have a recall clause) with probably a view to playing for us next season.
