Re: Saturday - Darlo v Ossett Albion

Here's just a selection of photos I took of the match if anyone is actually interested. For some reason they've uploaded back to front, so I suggest scrolling backwards when viewing them. http://s75.photobucket.com/user/TimHickman94/media/Ossett%20Town%20Away%2018-1-14/OssettAlbionAway004_zps509bdd...

Re: Kendal & Prescot rearranged

I'm not certain - depends on what type of ticket you buy of course - but to me that is besides the point. A perfectly valid fixture being changed for little overall added value. Even if I get a refund I'm down £20 and the cheaper advance tickets have gone for trains to Kendal.

Re: Neil Aspin

Christ's sake. FCUM are one of the few clubs around that, to my mind, are doing things the right way. They saw the way football was going and chanced their arm on doing something different, and it works. On top of that, they don't seem to have some massive complex about being non-league, which AFC ...

Re: Virgin trains and the west coast franchise

Read that they could lose another franchise. Mixed feelings. Great innovators with the computerised seat bookings and their beautiful trains but then most of the rail 'cock ups' I have ever had have involved them. Not convinced by the computerised seat reservations - don't always work and are not a...

Re: Dunston game MOVED to Friday night

Yes, but as I understand it (happy to be corrected if I'm wrong) this change was because the ground had been booked for something else before we agreed the groundshare . If so it's not much of an excuse to those who have bought non-refundable travel to get to the game on the Saturday. (I'm assuming...

Matt Cardles cover of Many of Horror is the worst cover ever. Biffy clyro are a band that shouldn't be covered, and changing the name of the song to 'When We Collide' just made it even more annoying. I agree. Covering a band as s*** as Biffy Clyro smacks of desperation. There are thousands of bette...
