  1. Same challenge for me WB re the need to get behind the club we love. There is a bit of me that expects cash we put in now through tickets is more like a donation. Covid restrictions are likely to come and go well into next spring. I almost wonder if we go into the Flea and ITman suggested route of a supporters subscription. 10 to 20 pound per month donation under the banner of 'STID - sticking together'. A thousand of us doing that for 7 or 8 months, funding behind closed doors games. Donations would be better than buying live streams from a tax perspective. All games could be free to air via youtube if the donation scheme grew legs. We, and every other small club, need to get real around the possibility of live football just not being viable and find a way now to keep the engines running.
  2. At a club like ours I don't get the 'I will only buy a season ticket if we sign....' Right now the club needs our support more than most other moments. To be honest, if you follow the Shay expecting to win something, and that's the only reason, you might need some professional help. Keep it simple, stand up and be counted when it matters. STID
  3. How can you be TT and support Town!!!
  4. It sums up football that the oldest professional club in the world have a play off game against a team who's ground capacity is lower than County's average attendance. That only happens because Notts are the epitomy of a mismanaged football club. Years of clown like behaviour have got them here. They should win of course but they are a team of overpaid journeymen versus a team of overpaid non leaguers. It will be tight, and it will be a sad day for the league if Harrogate pull it off. The least followed hobbyist club of league history. They would make teams like Crawley and Forest Green look big.
  5. I was at Tamworth and Alsager, I was just glad we existed in some form or other. I also remember Alfreton and Gemmo eating pie and chips before the game. However, I paid around 60 quid towards this play off lark and now want a refund dating back to the days of Dorryl Proffitt, bloody garbage town.
  6. Its getting to the point where half the National League are actually proper teams. Would be ideal to lose a hobbyist club this time around.
  7. Used to love those games, a quick skive off work for the afternoon ones but more so the cold tuesday night in February with 80 or so other anoraks!
  8. It was a mid afternoon reserve game against Forest, I remember a very young Gary Charles playing for them and he looked about 15.
  9. I remember a young David Platt scoring for Crewe against and seeing Archie Gemmil playing in a reserves game against us, I always thought he was the epitomy of a hardworking footballer.
  10. I went primary school with Vic, what happened to him?
  11. Read your own posts and those of your lad, you don't seem to get it. The assertions you made were either completely thoughtless, which is possible, or your ideas are simply 20 years out of date. To try and create a link between an act of terrorism and the questionable actions of an EDL type was quite offensive. To suggest that a terrorist incident was buried in news perhaps says most about the news sources you choose. I'm still reading about the Reading deaths, it remains prominent in a range of news sources. Think for a moment what the world is actually like for some folk based on skin colour and where your head is on the question of racism. I don't understand how you can't grasp that the events in America are a symbolic moment that brings to the fore how institutional racism is a crippling aspect of many lives. You don't know me by the way, vile no, principled yes. Speak to somebody who knows me, I doubt you will find ditractors. Also reflect (seriously think about it) on the statements you have made here and elsewhere. Bottom line, you can spout tripe all day long about football. However, when it comes to more significant aspects of life, perhaps think a moment before you type.
  12. No, not at all, am saying that the lads with the least amount upstairs constantly seem to know the best. Bit of reasoned, informed debate on the other hand is a pretty useful aspect of a forum.
  13. Which is exactly why its OK to resort to abusive langauge and suggest somebody throws them self in front of a moving vehicle. Mmmm, let me mull that one over, could be just that on a general level you can't control that temper. Here's the thing sunshine, you always know better, bit like the dim-witted racist father and son combo. Truth is, you have no real grasp of the complexities, personalities or choices that any 'incapable' , full time football manager (who gets paid) has to deal with in any situation that you choose to simplify. There may be some situations in life where you know better than others but football and personal conduct are not them.

  15. You should tell their manager, you remain the worlds greatest football genius. Remind me what you do for a living again...
