Re: It was 30 years ago this week just gone.....

Thanks for that Nimrod I was there. I only missed 2 games home & away all season & that was because of a holiday booked before the season started. I remember going to the first game of the season at Wycombe & someone said lets go to every game this season, so there was a group of around 10 of us th...

I'm sure two supporters coaches went that day being the first away game in the conference it was a bit of a novelty.
I was thinking that too, not sure why Pete thinks we had less than 50. We had great support at most away games that season.

Now I'm not sure now, you may be right. I thought our first away game was at Wycombe & there was less than 50 of us there.
Way more than 50 there Pete, couple of hundred at least.

Re: Season VOIDED

You can guarantee that any fines owed to the FA will still be expected to be paid, even if the games they were relating to are voided. Can of worms is an understatement. Even on here we all have different opinions so imagine what thats like over every club in the pyramid, especially with clubs that ...

The problem is without evidence then these things are one person's word against another. If they didn't back the referees then you wouldn't be playing anyway.

Considering next season could well be affected too then its my view that this season should be concluded properly when appropriate.

Personally I prefer team players. After Styche got his call up for Gibraltar (whilst playing for us) it all went downhill. Loss of form - slagged off from the Tinshed, then numerous transfers downwards. I think he sees himself as top dog but to be top dog you need to be Gabbiadini standard - which ...

You sometimes wonder whether they would be better placed selling the land to developers and using proceeds to build themselves something elsewhere in the town away from danger.
And what would the developers develop on land that is regularly underwater? A open air swimming pool maybe?
