  1. Totally agree with this Bill. It would be a really exciting prospect to go to nearly every away game as well as home games due to less distance to travel. Also, if there is no relegation from Div 2 (or even Div 1) the due parachute payments could be used towards financing a Div 2 North and South. I also think we could attract more players to Halifax as we are seen to be a prudently run club and, even though we pay smaller ( more realistic wages), players know they will get paid if they come to us. This could be a good time to put up the proverbial '2 fingers' to unscrupulous blood sucking agents as there will no longer be so many clubs falling over each other (potentially risking going bust in the process) to pay inflated wages to ordinary players. It would be goodbye to the parasites of football.
  2. Best wishes fellow Shayman
  3. Any one remember Derek Bell? He wasn't the biggest but played for us during the dim, dark Div 4 days when we were really poor. Like Paul Hendrie and Tommy 'Ten Men' he would tackle anything that moved. Lost count of the number of goal keepers he would take out when put through. A colourful character as well.
  4. My dad took me to watch Huddersfield town vs Chelsea at Leeds Road in the Fa Cup in January 1967 and Bonetti was playing. John Hollins, chopper Harris, Eddie Mcreadie and Charlie Cook, all great names from the past, were all playing too. I think Chelsea won 2 1. I did have the programme but it's long gone. A few weeks earlier he took me to the Shay for my first game ever at the Shay, the Fa Cup replay against Bishop Auckland. I was only 9 and remembered being lifted over the turnstile. Happy Days.
  5. The following year England lost 2 1 when Clemence let a scuffed shot from Dalglish go straight through his legs. I was in Scotland that day for my sister's wedding. Cost me a fortune in lost bets and my Scottish brother in laws family and mates had a field day taking the p!ss. From that day on I was always a Shilton fan.
  6. Good luck. You will get through this. My daughter got cancer aged just 24 and beat it. Stay positive Keith and get through it.
  7. Used to love 'Ask Elvis' on the Steve Wright show. Very funny, used to make me really chuckle. Would love it if he came back.
  8. Posh Chocolate and very nice it is too. Sold at all National Trust cafes and shops. Normally treat myself to some when i visit Nostell Priory and Clumber Park. Alas Dear Steve all National Trust properties and Parks are closed due the current Coronavirus crisis. It is probably sold elsewhere but not sure where. Anyway given up chocolate for lent so eagerly waiting till Easter so I can become a chocoholic again.
  9. Yes agree Smith lacked Physicality and needed the power, strength and muscle of Ainge. Don't know what Aspin saw in Smith. He cut off his nose to spite his face with his fall out with Ainge. Where was Roberts for this game?
  10. That Town team would have easily won the league last season (and this, if it ever gets finished), such is the poor quality of the National League for the last couple of years. Big mistake by Neil Aspin to play Danny Lowe at CB instead Simon Ainge for the 2nd leg of the play-off game at Cambridge that season. Aingey would have handled the aerial bombardment much better.
  11. Now is the time to merge the Conference and Div 2 into League 2 North and South. Would eliminate very expensive overnight stays and travel and away support would go up. No brainer. Only problem would be if the Football league were willing to pay out for what would in effect be another layer to the football League.
  12. Glad I booked an evening at the comedy club in Leeds and missed today's game. Tried to give my season ticket away and nobody wanted it. Can see why now.
  13. Thanks Steve. I was only hoping
  14. Why on earth for goodness sake do we need a holding midfielder when we have 5 at the back. There were times today, when we were losing 2 0, when we had 8 back marking 2 to 3 players. Ridiculous when we have no one in midfield to pick up the clearance/second ball so just comes straight back relentlessly. After about 60' today, when we were 'attacking, we had 4 back marking 1 attacker with J king stood in front of Maher at right back and he had to be told to get forward to provide some width. Incredulous. I don't expect to win every game, even at home, but our non existent response in the second half was abject. Ok it could have been different if Staunton hadn't missed that free header from 3 yards early on but today was woeful. Our shape was all over the place. We played like one trick ponies. Its not rocket science that pressing the opposition and getting forward and backwards in numbers gets you out of this division. You don't need UEFA B certificates and Full Pro licenses to understand that. Rant over. I hope i feel better in the morning.
  15. Is that you 5th from the left? Memories. My brother did his building apprenticeship with A.O Crowthers and they built the 1st house I ever bought. A company long since gone.
