  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. 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!!

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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

  8. ... 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

  9. 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

  10. 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

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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

  18. 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.

  19. 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

  21. 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

  23. 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

  27. 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

  28. 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

  32. 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

  35. Just to clear something up here in general. Why do so many people feel compelled to try and always put others down on this site. I have had several responses to my comments made last night about claiming my money back this time around should this season go tits up, which it still may very well do. Yet people come on these threads belittling this as if to try and say I'm out of order!! The club put a statement out, contained in that statement was a nigh on plea for people to buy their S/T, putting pressure on by using the tactic of we may not get into games without one. So, for the last couple

  36. The verdict of manslaughter brought in against the young lads who killed Jordan. What a waste of a life, all brought about because of a bit of banter and a throw away comment. It's funny how you can look back at your own life and think how many times you found yourself in very similar situations. That young man who could take on the world, the times you were shoved, probably by accident in a packed bar, or the times you accidently bumped into someone, but the aggressive stance that had to be adopted. Just because you had to!! When I've read the situation surrounding the Jordan case, it's all j

  38. I went with Simon Denton of SDS fame to see Rathbone speak at a pub behind Euston station in London when his book ‘The smell of football’ first came out. We were the only two Town fans there and were heavily outnumbered by Everton supporters. I had the temerity to raise my hand to ask him not about the well-documented Hereford game, but the last away game at Gillingham. I began by apologising to the Evertonians for diverting the conversation away from all things Goodison when one wag shouted out in a broad scouse accent, ‘Don’t worry, mate. Were all Halifax fans here.’ Rathbone spoke well and

  40. FFS just let it go. It's verging on miraculous what Wild has got Town achieving this season. Even if he has a blind spot for one player, so bloody what? If we finish eighth after the mess JF left behind, fantastic imo. If Wild was perfect, if TSS was perfect, neither would be at this club. But we don't seem to be doing too badly considering both are deliberately making mistakes just to piss TJ and Trev off.

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...

  43. 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.

  44. 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

  45. I think PW has done a superb job. We were in with a chance of actually winning the league for a huge part of this season. Considering he had 10 days to build a squad and he is a rookie manager completing his first season, as far as starts go, its a pretty bloody good one in my opinion.

Not just for himself, but for his family and pregnant partner. Those getting enjoyment out of his illness and hoping he doesn’t make it are simply pricks.
