Re: Southport Highlights

Defender's reaction is to gesture that he got the ball, if it was a blatant dive he surely would have concentrated on that in his protestations so I'm assuming there was contact. Does look like Rivers was trying to get contact rather than trying to beat him, players do make it hard for referees.

Re: Owners Club

I think the success of the 50/50 draw has been that it is self perpetuating - more people bought tickets and the prize went up. Others saw the inflated prize and thought I'll have some of that and bought more tickets because of it and it's been snowballing. £16k I think is a fantastic success. Small...

Can only assume he was happy with the way things were going to not change a thing. Obviously saw something I didn't. We probably dominated possession and territory in the second half but any sniff we had was of Chesters doing. Summer can't come quickly enough, pretty confident now we'll be changing ...

Re: Matchday Free Car Park Day ?

The car park is usually pretty full with paying fans. Not sure it would be a good idea to displace these with people parking for free.

Re: Hartlepool match confirmed at BM

Having watched the highlights, the ball from Burn to Ainge wasn't ideal but it was an easy clearance for Ainge. Think it's a bit harsh to pin it on Burn.

If when in, they do draw attention to themselves by being bell-ends then there will be a clear reason to boot them out, no arguing over what they did or didn...

Re: Bradford Park Avenue

Is it to do with funding? Is it not just overspending? If BPA had received an extra £1m over the last few years would they not have just spent £1m more and be in the same boat? Too many clubs want to get ahead so much they gamble their futures on it, I don't think giving them more money is going to ...

It seems no matter what we do some fans will be alienated.

Undoubtedly many have already packed in because ...
