  1. A great description of our position. However, I think we’ve ran out of the cash reserves and the Board are digging into their piggy banks to fund the club.

    I’m a Ducky fan. Good signing. Now let’s sign some midfielders who can supply our strikers.
  3. Gennoe Nichol Freddie Hill (the best player I've seen play for us) Vardy
  4. 68-69 season. We beat Newport County 3-0. Lez Massey hatrick. First away game was at Bradford City, think it was 1-1 with Tony Flower putting us ahead. A lot of fighting at that game.
  5. The most important characteristic of a great life is a positive outlook.

    I’d rather go to Harrogate than Fylde so for that reason I hope Harrogate don’t go through.
  7. Ben Bottomley is a good DJ so the music shouldn’t be a problem, but it is. Can’t he get involved & resolve matters?
  8. Our next manager? Fingers crossed.
  9. Good result to end a disappointing season, when we played too deep, too often, even taking injuries into account. I believe a more positive attitude would have seen more points won over the Season. Fingers crossed JF can deliver the more positive style of play next Season, that we were promised this Season.
  10. How many Town fans have made the trip?
  11. I’m concerned we’ll lose Clarke. He’s had a great season & I think he’ll be looking for Player / Coach or Player / Manager. If I was DB I’d fire JF and give Nathan the Player Manager role. Think he’d be great for moral which was sadly lacking for much of this season.
  12. Didn't realise JF was going to have to work so hard this Summer. Let's hope he learns from last Summers disappointments and starts to play players in their natural positions (I'm sure he hasn't got the best out Southwell). I also want to see the tactics improve on this season, i.e, more offensive. I think we need at least 2 creative players in the side. King can't do it alone and I think Kossy will try his hand else where.
  13. Can someone please post a list of players under contract for next season. I know Kossy's contract is up, so I expect him to move on. Starting to think about the inevitable turnover.
  14. Great start. Hope JF plays King & Hanson for the rest of the season with a more offensive style as promised at the beginning of what’s been a boring season.
  15. I think JF has to go. Doubt he will because he’s expensive & has a 2 year contract. Managers have a responsibility to entertain but JF doesn’t get it. I can’t handle only 3 shots in 90 mins. It’s simply not acceptable.
  16. Success can bring the crowds in. Bradford City get much bigger crowds now than they did when in the old Division 3 in the early 70’s.
  17. I like this appointment. Wish he was in charge tonight. More chance of playing 2 upfront from the start.

    Heath out. I can't stand it any more. He hasn't a clue. You know the Board have doubts when he's banned from speaking to the Press. When he signs someone to play off Denton (at long last) he drops Denton. You couldn't make it up. Please, please, please sack BH. This league is wide open and though we've had bad luck with injuries we simply are not fulfilling our potential.
  19. I've a lot of faith in the BoD. I think they'll get rid of Brainless Billy now. He got us up last season so deserved a chance in this League but enough is enough. Too many BH decisions simply cannot be explained. Playing Denton by himself too often is the worst of many mystifying BH calls. Taxi for Billy.
  20. Torquay have won at Sutton. Heli for Caretaker manager.
  21. I'm not a Heath fan. He seems to have his favourites e.g. bringing Clark off the bench when we need a goal (nonsense). He also seems incapable of getting the best out of our young talent (Morgan and Hibbs). After getting us promotion he deserved a chance to manage us this season and I know we can't afford to replace him at this point in his contract, but he has to get some points on the board between now and the New Year or it's going to be a struggle to survive now.
  22. Team shape coming together. Fingers crossed that we grow in confidence.
  23. Criticising the Board is ridiculous. I'm sure if someone with more money wanted to takeover they'd step aside.
  24. I agree with your sentiment but Billy Heath seems incapable of learning from his mistakes. It's like Groundhog Day. The atmosphere at The Shay is so negative players are scared of making mistakes. In the Shaymen TV interview Billy claims we've played well, when it's clear we've struggled to create many chances. He always talks about effort and commitment but what about some NOUS for a change? Our set up makes it hard to create chances and take the game to the opposition. We're playing 2 wingers but the midfield is sitting so far back we struggle to get them into the game. We play Denton upfront all by himself most of the time and wonder why we don't create anything...How about playing McManus instead of Charles and trying to keep possession a little more and play from there. All isn't lost yet. We've played and lost to 2 of the best teams in the league. Easier fixtures coming up. Lets hope Billy can set us up to create some chances and then we can judge where we are after 12 games.
