  1. just got the call. Got the job! Sweet, sweet relief. 12 contract, time to build up my new business with my other directors, I've never been so pleased to take a pay drop!! This year! This for all the well wishers, means a lot and I can now go back to getting some sleep and looking forward. Too early for a beer?!

  2. My uncle lost his battle to this in Royal Bolton this morning, so he will be one of today’s numbers. last rites over the phone held by a nurse with no family there. made an exception yesterday evening and allowed my Aunt in for a short while to say goodbye , she was so covered up and him in such a way will never know if he knew, but my aunt said he did and took comfort from it. None of his kids have seen him since last Thursday and can’t even be with their mum now. Not writing this for sympathy, very few know me and I know most on here are decent enough without needing

  4. Right then, I watched it live on Sky. Frightened the life out of the missus and half the fucking estate when Sarce scored. Swigging Flensburgers like a madman then the second went in and it was over to celebratory Moscow Mules. Pissed as a rat by midnight singing out on my balcony with the BWFC flag on display (some on here have proof! 😄). Quietly sitting around recovering on Sunday, the dawn of realisation started to set in. Absolutely remarkable what the club has achieved. Not just the players, owners, management but most of all our magnificent loyal supporters. That Morecambe day

  5. I’ve sat with my mum who is slipping away, literally breathing her last today. She idolises the Queen, and whilst she didn’t in all likelihood hear that, I know she would have loved every single word. When she said ‘we’ll meet again’ I lost it and don’t think I’ll recover for a long time. Lost.

So why don’t you lay off patronising folk Chris and keep this beeno chat to another forum or chats with your mates. Folk are suffering cos the club they love is dying and between you and your patronising and fanny5 and his bleating his incorrect opinions almost rhythmically it’s getting on folks nerves.

  7. Been on the beers since finishing work. Get home and the mrs has flaked out. Sat searching YouTube vids with a few gins trying to reminisce but where do you go Okocha running Keane about the park, scoring that free kick against Villa or against bora, or sending West Ham down, or any showboating. Pedersen scoring goals from ridiculous angles. Sasa and Pollock running rings. Vaz Te miss hitting some worldies. Djorkaef and Hierro gracing the pitch in a white shirt. Anelka scoring for fun in his peak. Stelios playing football with a smile. Nolan and Ricketts smashing United. Davies eq

Equality. so equality in sport. No not people getting better privileges as a player and being recognised for his skill and not because he’s a different colour Football is the most watched sport in the world, if the world world tunes in to watch Rashford, Kane, Ronaldo, Messi and the moment before, one person see These players take a knee and that provokes a thought, then it works.

  14. Jake Wright was the defensive organiser (very aware of what’s going on, always talking, shouting, pointing) in our league one promotion year and is actually bit of a legend at Bramall Lane after his run of over 30 games without defeat I cannot think of a better player for you to bring in under the circumstances - well liked modest and sensible professional who you could build a defence around and I expect would also bring on your younger players Wish him success, hearty thanks and I hope he is as good for you as he was for the Blades

  15. Long time coming, but the final bit of the funds raised went towards part funding a standing frame, which Erin got to use for first time at school today (yes, some stuff really does take an age). Wanted to share to show you the joy you have brought to Erin, who loves working hard as you can see in this photo. Promised an update and want to thank each and every one of you who helped out, as a family we remain so grateful.

  16. Appologies for not posting for a while. I've had enough of this site for bit, it's too political for me and unfortunatley I've got 3 old members of the family who caught this last week (all doing ok so far), which has put things into perspective for me, so this is my last post for a bit. Main things to remember are; Covid 19 is a mild illness for many, lasting less than a fortnight for most but according to ZOE; For 1 in 50 it can result in symptoms for more than 3 months and unfortunatley hospitalisation and death for some of those. 1 in 20 suffer symptoms for 8 weeks or more.

  17. Right I usually hate it when people do this but I'm going to do it anyway. A quote from a bloke I like watching on YouTube. ' If we commemorate one thing, then that should presumably be the biggest human event that affects us today. The biggest event in human history was World War Two. It was the biggest war, the deadliest war, the most widespread war and the event that changed the world the most. At the start of the war, Russia was a sleeping bear, Britain was the most powerful nation on the planet, and Germany was a brutal dictatorship. At the end of the war, The US

When you first knew us he could go away for 18 months at a time ,in those days a company would not fly you home you just stayed on ship until you came back to the UK. My dad grew up on the Isle of Arran and when he was eleven he had to go to school on the mainland .So on a Monday morning he would catch the first ferry to Ardrossan and stay on the mainland all week before catching the ferry back Fri

  22. This will be my last post in this thread but here’s a story. When I was a kid I played football and I was decent, got a few player of the year trophies, I was fuckin rapid and scored goals for fun. One game a lad called me a fuckin wog, it got to me. I can still picture the lad now. This happened quite a bit, and everytime it got to me, I had managers who did nothing. Growing up when I attended the wanderers matches I loved it, but I witnessed racism that hurt, I got it delivered to myself from home and away fans. That takes serious strength to continue to go to matche

  31. I've been pretty quiet on here over the last few seasons. Mostly due to the sheer fucking despair at our situation and the tailspin we have ended up in. But also because I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer about 18 months ago. It was shock. I was pretty young to get it (55 at the time). I'd been to Dr's about summat else and he sent me for a blood test and they picked it up. At first it was 'low grade, low risk'. I had regular blood tests and a biopsy. That was bloody horrible. Anyway, I went for more tests and they said that it had got worse and they needed to act before it spread. I had my

  32. Read the comments about wages. Players have come here cos no one else wanted them at this level. Add in shit storm that the club has become no manager would have had much chance of keeping us up. Parky has made some strange and some just bad calls but the idea it is all his fault is honestly bollocks. I do think he has to go but I won’t join in this hatred that people seem to have to him.

  34. Folk about moaned about the club's perilous financial position for several of the past few years. They've complained about how badly managed the club was and now that the current owners are trying to run it as a business, they're getting moaned at too. I think Ms Brittan et al have sat down and considered it for a long time to work out what's the most they can charge without pissing too many fans off, whilst also selling them as cheap as they can realistically afford to. That's why they're more successful in business than most of us. (Obviously we've some senior captains of industry on he

  35. The EFL should issue a statement to say: "We deny Wigan Athletic permission to start the season. What is more we acknowledge and apologise for the mistake of our predecessors in opening the door to these smelly, scruffy cunts in 1978. They have added very little to Lancashire football or the wider game. It is a pleasure to have this opportunity to bin the bastards off. Believe."

  36. Britain was totally alone after France fell in June 1940, right up until the Germans invaded Russia in June 1941 forcing the Russians onto the Allied side after being in a cosy pact with Nazi Germany beforehand. Hitler said he didn't have any problem with Britain, regarded us as a basically Aryan country, and would let us keep our Empire if we stayed out of things in Europe (though how long that would remain the case is anyone's guess). Churchill told him to GTF. Then winning the Battle of Britain and sending bomber raids to Germany not only kept an Allied 'foothold' in Europe, but also showed

Every day and night seems to have been spent arguing the toss about the club, worrying about the club and head getting completely frazzled with the daily sagas. Literally every single day something happened, a twist in the tale, a note from the chairman, a winding up order, a journalist banned, on and on and on...hour after hour pacing up and down my kitchen on my phone, sat at kids swimming on my phone, sat in the van at work during a storm on my fucking phone. Now its all over. Hardly

Ok this is not the popular view 1)Parkinson came in when we were rock bottom & stopped the rot. 2) Despite all the embargo shite & players who had forgotten what winning felt like we got promoted , not pretty but effective management 3)Despite limited recruitment & further financial constraints we finished fourth from bottom a position most fans would have taken at the season start. 4) Further financial shenanagens have followed & our fans have become fed up with the attritional nature of the battle to stay up so they believe the time for manager change is

  45. He isn't a cunt though is he. Handled himself incredibly professionally throughout his time here. As a youngish lad who can remember the uefa cup but certainly did not appreciate it hes given me some of my best times watching us. Most of league one - port vale, southend, peterboro and forest last year are days ill never forget and he was the man in charge. His football is not great on the eye, especially when getting beat every week!! But if he was to go, he'd go with a massive thanks from me.

Yes the kids look knackered but if you’re telling me they’d rather go back to playing in front of their family and a few dogs on Saturday rather than 2,000 fans who will back then whether they win lose or draw them you’re mad. We’re in the shit; we all know we are. We’re holding things together by a thread, but we still had 2,200 fans in an away end backing the club for the afternoon. That’s all that matters.
