  1. Away fans not allowed in the bar, not very friendly.
  2. I was really hoping we'd have fired JF on Saturday night and a more charismatic man could have inspired the team on Tuesday evening. The silence is deafening and very disappointing. However, I'll be there tomorrow night. How many fellow Shaymen can I expect to see? My guess is 25.
  3. It’s all about attitude and that’s so wrong. He’ll fire him today. Time for The Hampster to run the team.
  4. Think SpyGate might have rocked the Leeds boat. Have a feeling neither will go up automatically, but one could go up via the playoffs.
  5. I agree with your well made points. 7 points from the next 3 games, which is what i’m targeting and we can play the rest of the season out, without looking over our shoulders. Time to get behind the team.
  6. I was at this game. My first away match and it was frightening with a lot of fights in the crowd. We had a lot of fans there but most were keeping quiet to avoid trouble. We had a good team in those days, that had a game plan, unlike our current side, which doesn’t seem to know how it’s going to play for anything other than a draw.
  7. Braintree are much better away from home than at home. They are also fighting for their lives. Nevertheless, this is an extremely disappointing result and performance. JF doesn't seem to motivate the players. We make 2 very encouraging signings and then fall flat on our face.
  8. I think we’ll sign someone, probably a striker. With King coming back soon that’s the obvious weakness.
  9. Impressive return from 2 tough away games. Confidence should be improving. Let’s hope we can win at home to Harrogate.
  10. Many thanks for all your posts. Great to see this and all the others.
  11. Great result. Sounds like the team played with some spirit that has often been lacking. Onwards and upwards.
  12. Promising start. Have to score to make our pressure tell. Not impressed by the ref .
  13. Depends whose controlling the purse strings. Current Board don't look likely to continue to finance full time indefinitely and the crowds are disappointing, even for us. If we get to the 3rd round of the cup and draw one of the big teams it could finance full time for a few years. On the other hand if we get knocked out (as expected) and current Board walk away (wouldn't surprise me) at the end of the Season, we'd be lucky to still exist. Sadly I can't see a queue of wealthy guys lining up, who want to take the club forward and are prepared to spend their cash on The Shaymen. When the Halifax Rugby League fans bemoaned Tony Gartland (rich local business man), he got fed up and left. They've never recovered. So I for one will not be slating the current Board.
  14. JF out. He was learning on the job but doesn’t have the personality to run a team. Simple as. Out out out.
  15. I'll settle for another clean sheet tomorrow. Would love to nick it 1-0.
  16. Said Bertie Mee to Bill Shankley Have you heard of the North Bank, Highbury Shank said no, I don’t think so But I’ve heard of the Skircoat Boot Boys
  17. I think Southwell's best game was away at Sutton, when he scored as well. Think he'd score plenty of goals if we added a creative midfielder and pushed him up a bit.
  18. Town 2 Fulham 1. The season before we’d lost 8-0 under floodlights. The winner came from a very unlikely source (Wallace) but was a really well worked goal. Happy days.
  19. Out for me. Moral is simply not good enough. JF’s team is not fighting for him.
  20. I'm as disappointed as the next supporter. I was a big JF fan. Turned things round last season and started this one well. The biggest concern for me is the teams moral, which clearly isn't as good as it should be. I always liked Helli in this respect. If JF can't improve this fundamental issue, he'll have to go. I say this reluctantly, but that's football. The calls for the Boards head, however, I do not understand. In my view it's a case of be careful what you wish for. I'd rather be where we are than Hereford, Stockport, York, Chester, Southport and Darlington. I'm sure the Board can't enjoy the flack they get for running a tight ship. Be careful or they might just call it a day and pass the buck on to who? I can't see a queue of people wanting to spend their time and money on our team. DB gets loads of criticism, but take him out of the picture and our biggest sponsor is no more. Look at the effort that went into "Halifax Towns big night out". A great night that finished with the legend John Barnes singing with a crowd on the dance floor and more importantly, and this is a guess, approx £10,000 in the clubs bank account. I suspect these thoughts will bring the usual suspects out claiming I'm mad! But there isn't a queue of people waiting to spend their cash on FC Halifax Town and take all the criticism.
