Morning Wood

Recommended Posts

Pretty funny interview with the chairman involving their crowds. Apparently they’ve sold 300 adults/senior tickets at £99 each and still only got 270 home fans this weekend, less than half the crowd of the second worst supported team.

Horrible club are Boreham. I wonder if they still try to charge away sides media teams to enter the ground and record?

I dont care if they go under. Funded beyond their means, no history and bring nothing to the table.

An enjoyable read, hopefully they’ll go back where they came from. Can you imagine DB giving an interview like that?

Now that’s a Chairman who has got more money than sense , perhaps he’d like to adopt a little northern club I know that has a Chairman whose got more sense than money ?

Wow that really says it. If the support for a National League side isn’t there it isn’t there. After 21 years it’s seems he has finally woken up.

Attendances across the division are poor. A handful of the better supported clubs distort the picture that the National League try to paint.

He pretty much does every time he speaks. Constantly whinging about money when he hasn’t physically invested any. The boreham wood guy has put in over £1m in 6 months. DB would keel over.

It’s more the manner. He comes across as a petulant child

Re-reading that Morning Wood article on a desktop and getting entertained by it all over again.

"Most of that was done on crowds that I could fit into my back garden but you would expect them by now to of really improved." What a sentence. Quite a neat little flex to say that 250 or so could fit into your back garden too.

The bit about the Wood Army fleecing him into building them a proper home end to "get the place rocking" is comical too, but at least he's not spending that money on a Thai bride I presume.

It is rather staggering they're getting 277 in the home end including various guests, players and dignitaries though. I think most teams we played in the Unibond North, like Prescot Cables or Bamber Bridge, would easily do better if similar were invested. Especially sad given the Wembley thing which usually gives a booster to support. Not like Sutton bringing just 130 fans 30 miles is good either.

Someone on Twitter is saying their own matchday commentators, who are volunteers, have to pay as a media team to do their own unpaid work for the team they love! I don't wish them to go bump, but I do think it's a sign they should be winding it down now and funding B-Wood based on what actually comes in. And hopefully they do so in time for Saturday 12th October.

In an area completely dominated by Arsenal and Spurs - what do they expect!? 

As others have said they seem far from friendly especially to away supporters it would seem. As much as I quite enjoy Town visiting new places and grounds this is one we've done and won't miss.

How can anybody hate Boreham Wood? Who even are they? 

I went to see my mate tonight and when I got to the bus stop in Leeds it had been cancelled and tje next one was 30 mins.

Anyway there was this couple who weren't happy that the bus had been cancelled but they blamed the bus missing on Asian's and black people. He said that drivers would wait for a black person but not for white people and that the reason Leeds doesn't have e trams is because of Asian taxi drivers.

I made my excused and walked to catch a different bus. I was puzzled all the way as to why they thought what they thought.

Average house price 480k against your average of 150k :lol:

I know. Unbelievable prices down  south. Not something to laugh about really. Totally unaffordable. What exactly do you find funny here Bollox? Or do you think you are superior as you live in Northowram with high average prices? Please enlighten me?

Sadly there is too much hate in the world nowadays. If everybody loved a little more the world would be a much better place.

The fool I had the misfortune to meet tonight would have put most to shame.

Blaming a city's sub standard transport system on African and Asian people is some statement.

Although we did have common ground because we both agree how bad the transport system in Leeds is. But we have very different ideas as to why.

Of what relevance has this ridiculous none story to do with the thread apart from making Pipsqueak cream himself?

There’s a lot of forum users that assume they know things about other forum users. I’m still laughing at the silver spoon.

It’s funny because I saw off a friend yesterday as she needed to catch a tram. It didn’t cross my mind that she was Asian and therefore about to find out that the tram system would stop existing by the time she reached the platform. Luckily however there’d be a glut of taxis waiting for her instead, that is if she didn’t secretly drive one herself.

All these views are clearly a bit too wet and hippie-ish for our man in Malta, but clearly the bloke’s messed up. You get a lot of people with those brainworms. I read a tweet yesterday where someone wanted the IRA to reform just to bomb the governing cabinet while it sat in order to stop Brexit. Then to redress the balance, Ian Holloway said in an interview that we’d finally be able to get rid of VAR technology if we finally got out of Europe.

All of which is some distance worse than hating Boreham Wood as they currently are. A club that charge their own volunteers to provide them with matchday commentary, and make 16-year-olds pay £20 in at a ground where Arsenal’s women are the bigger team anyway. A Sutton fan I read has seen his team play them for most of the last 20 years and claims they can’t stand this club and the chairman’s shenanigans, hence they took only 130 to one of their closest grounds on a Saturday.

 I wouldn’t want them to go bust, but if they’re Bostik League size then they belong down there.

The link was a tenuous one. It reminded me of my very brief encounter with the couple mentioned in my post.

What nonsense.  Just because we leave the EU, it doesn't mean we stop being a member of UEFA.
