Re: Democracy under threat.

Don’t understand the logic of going for no-deal. You’re still going to have to resolve key issues, such as the Northern Ireland border, customs and so on in any future trading deal with the EU. It’s misleading to pretend no-deal is a silver bullet. It merely kicks the can down the road and you stil...

Re: The Glittering Star

Odd bloke for sure. Shutting down a pub recently opened due to bloke swearing with his wife, not as if it was swearing at staff. Why not just ban the bloke out if it upset him that much? Dads mate used to run a sam smiths pub and there was alot of call to get footie on from regulars but the old fart...

Re: Hignett Out

Beggars cant be choosers. I guess pools fans would rather have singh than re-start in the northern league. If the worst happens at least they will have had a few more year in there current guise. As for whishing there demise a bit petty ive generally found the pools fans ok, would not base them on i...

Shildonlad - below is an explanation, but it's NOT WRITTEN BY ME, it's written by QUAKERZ (who now calls himself Ghost83 or something) I liked this explanation at the time so copied it - I hope he doesn't mind me posting it here.

Re: Greetings

What was the deal of getting your old name back btw? I gather that it was not granted right away but the FA then let you take it back. Still a touchy subject with some. Because some pillock decided we were a "new" club we had to change name. We served a 5 year punishment before they allowed us to h...

Alright pal whilst im sorry about bury i think it would have set a bad example if they were allowed back in the league especially with the same owner. The ground issue seems a mess. Mind if the grounds got a covant on and theres a new bury wanting to play there that would be better than it lying emp...
