  1. Clearly, we’re going to have to beat Harrogate on Tuesday and then Dover away in front of their cameras before the BT Highlights show gives us any credit. Just watched tonight’s show and no mention of how well we’re generally doing. They did mention us a few weeks ago mind when they said our early wins will come in handy when we go on a losing run. Come on Bromley and Woking!
  2. First reaction? A blessing in disguise. The guy was never going to give us a good, entertaining season. Short-term it means uncertainty but I think we just experienced dodging a bullet.
  3. Welcome Jack and good luck at The Shay. Hope he can live up to the huge signing build-up by the social media students. They can never be accused of underselling.
  4. This is what I got when I went to pay my final instalment today. Need to sign someone before I pay that!
  5. I know we endured a dire season, but I've just watched the BT Review of the National League Season and we barely got a mention (despite topping the table earlier on). Everyone else got a decent mention, we got a sentence and no footage. If you've recorded it, don't waste your time watching it.
  6. Just browsing the results pages and it shows we had the fourth lowest attendance yesterday. We got 87 more than Harrogate; 125 more than Solihull while relegated Braintree could manage just 331. There’s the real damage of a season of dross down The Shay. Look at yesterday - that’s JF, in his own words, preparing the team to play with the shackles off now that safety is assured. Heaven help us when he goes all defensive again.
  7. I never knew a former Shayman won the Victoria Cross fighting the Japanese in the jungle of Burma in 1944. In the latest edition of Britain at War ( https://britainatwar.keypublishing.com) there's a brilliant, in-depth piece on Hanson Turner, the Halifax bus driver who five times single-handily took on the enemy with grenades before being killed on his sixth sortee. As well as immense detail and evocative pictures, is the line: "By the end of the 1930s, Hanson was enjoying the settled life he craved, with a wife and daughter but with precious little time for indulgences beyond a spot of gardening and following the fortunes of his beloved Halifax Town FC". There is, what I guess, is a memorial rather than a grave to this blue-and-white hero at St Stephen's church in Copley. Wouldn't it be great if the club could formally recognise his heroic sacrifice on the 75th anniversary of his death and the award of the highest accolade for valour? The magazine is available on the above link and I've also seen if sometimes on sale in Sainsbury's.
  8. Meanwhile, Chesterfield have tonight announced their season ticket prices - and the fans ain't happy. £462 anyone? http://www.thecfss.co.uk/forums/index.php?showtopic=65005&st=0 https://www.chesterfield-fc.co.uk/news/2019/april/20190402-season-ticket-details-announced/
  9. Brilliant work by the board (not quite sure how they've pulled it off, though) but the other thing to do is push this offer as much as possible with mass publicity and getting into all the primary schools and junior football clubs telling kids there're free season tickets waiting for them if they can get a parent to buy a cut-price adult ticket. Great news.
  10. Looks like that away win Maidstone could well relegate us. Bosomworth won’t sack Fullarton now, especially as we have pi**ed away the ‘easier’ games. Stuck with the Scottish dud until the end of the season, whether it be survival or relegation. Utterly depressing; utterly predictable from three months ago; board utterly culpable. They are the ones to blame. Why do they get such an easy ride?
  11. The reason is very simple. Everyone expects all their news for free so media companies can't fund any 'proper' reporting as we had, say thirty years go. Tiny digital revenue and the ever-declining print revenue means that, what money they do have, goes on 'trending' writing following the whims of the digital audience eg how to pack a dishwasher, Love Island etc. Any news for the we-want-it-for free audience comes from, err, free sources. Press releases, police statements, social media, etc. This worrying set affairs has even been picked up by Facebook (the author of many of the media ills) who are now funding reporters on newspapers/sites. And the BBC are paying for 150 Local Democracy Reporters up and down there country to cover council meetings that would have otherwise gone unreported. I suppose what we're asking for here is a Local Football Team Reporter scheme. Was it Blur who said modern life is rubbish?
  12. How about crowdfunding to help pay his severance? I'd gladly give a few quid to see off the charlatan.
  13. Turn up, but don't go in, wait in the car park. But surely, it won't be necessary. They've got to give him the bullet.
