    I've been told by one of my sources that Kieran has signed for us today. 

    Let's hope that this is the start of a new younger, fitter, squad in line with what PW has been espousing all along.

  2. I think of it more as evergreen, rather than deciduous. These seedlings of humour being planted here will eventually grow into a full forest of Shaymen laughter, the likes of which mere saplings who are as thick as a plank, like Cheadle End, will never understand. This ability to branch out, to never bough to ridicule, to blossom when others wilt, will always see us survive when others wood fall. 


  3. Personally, we should be shouting from the treetops about it. My attitude to this thread has turned over a new leaf since it went against the grain and since then it has been plane sailing for me. We must have used up every one of Chadders jokes by now:D But as they say from little acorns do my mighty oaks grow.

    We would hopefully make more money later in the season, we have also agreed the main sponsor.

    Yes, if things settle down and the rules around social distancing relax then it might be beneficial financially to play away at first. Hopefully, it would not affect our performances though.

    There is a god case for Yorkshire independence , as a minimum from that other country.......London

    There is a "God" case indeed, as it is often referred to as God's County. When I was still a boy and at school, there was an annual debating contest and one year the subject was "The Case for Yorkshire Independence". That was over 50 years ago so although times have changed, opinions have not changed much:D

    Missed opportunity in 1461, after the Battle of Towton. 

    A very interesting piece of history and mostly overlooked. I live not far from Tadcaster and one of the nice country walks is around the old battlefield, although you would not know it now. Not sure of the exact number but I think more soldiers died in that battle than in any other battle in history in the UK.

    How does that apply to Streaming?  That is just videoing games to show at a later date, or that's how it reads to me??

    Exactly, live streaming is not permitted without permission of the NL, especially while the game is taking place. I can dig out from somewhere the restrictions also placed on the clubs by the BT Sports contract which gives them exclusive rights to show live games. So if anything it will probably be BT blocking it.

    The Stockport game mentioned elsewhere is a friendly match so is not covered under the BT Sports contract.

    I'm not bullying WB?? I wasn't sure what this ruling was, but it seems that its the National league don't allow the streaming of games into pubs, and I'm just pointing out the flaws in the plan.

    This is taken from the NL Rules:

    8.30 Match Videos.

    The Home Club in all matches played under the jurisdiction of the Competition shall film the game in its entirety with an uninterrupted view and provide a full match video to a content management solution as specified by the Competition and in a timeframe as determined by the Competition. The Away Club may film the match if this is agreed by the Home Club, such agreement is not to be unreasonably withheld. Clubs are permitted to use or duplicate match footage with the permission of the Competition only. Filming shall be in a format as directed by the National League from time to time.

    Just as well you weren't routefinding for Capt. Cook Tonto:)

    Maybe that should rephrased as "True North", then we get rid of those counties who are confused as to whether they are East Midlands or not. Above Yorkshire on the map who cares....

    Shame we cannot do anything about those to the west of us...

    I am too, bit it's too soon after all the play off stuff for me. Also I don't fancy having to ask my mom to go and pick up a programme every week so I'm hoping there's a mail out iron. Wouldn't be using any of the other benefits.

    Macc away following has always been surprisingly poor

    Not overly surprised as they have the lowest average home attendance in EFL 2 last season (1998), lower in fact than ours. However, the away figures for clubs in and around Manchester appear to be reasonable. Not sure if this would be the same if a midweek game, although of the 4 games I have numbers for one of them was a Weds night.

    If none of the existing squad have resigned that spells trouble and raises fears of a new team of kids on low wages. Let’s hope things are just moving slowly and good news is imminent.

    As people say, "no news is good news".....

    They brought a decent crowd when they'd won the conference back in 97.

    I can't remember Macc bringing more than 300 since then. Maybe theor away following has risen since but I am pretty sure they've not brought many over 300.

    Erik, even at 300, it would still be 3 times more than Stevenage would bring, unless as you say they were top of the table.
