  6. 👍👍 Zico mentioned last night on the phone about him switching to the same web design and host that the supporters trust use, in between bits about his next holiday round the Caribbean.

  7. Don't know If anyone is aware of this - a very sad story but worth a mention to set the record straight We all know that there were 33 victims in the Burnden Disaster Well - sort of Back in the day ( March 1946 ) there was no such thing as post traumatic stress and counselling - you just got on with things - or at least you were meant to - that was the way things were in the aftermath of the war Well sadly Robert Jones aged just 34 years old who lived in Bark Street was so traumatised by events at Burnden that day he did not get on with it - he gassed himself The Coroner recorded a suicide verdict on 15th March - 6 days after the disaster and said this "Without seeking in any way to minimise the tragedy at Burnden Park , it is difficult to understand why it should have had such an effect on this mans mind " To me he is the 34th Victim

  9. We're being gaslit into mourning here, football fans absolute low lives as usual. It's a disgraceful decision, a unilateral decision compared to other sports. "They'll take it, they'll go watching their team any time anywhere anyway, fuck em." They've been advised the games can be played and they've decided not to. That's a heap of advice about fans' wishes, about money already spent, about staff already in place and they've said no. Talk about respect, there's none of that here.

  10. When are the people that keep saying it was a poor game etc every week going to realise that its just the standard of football we are playing in. That today was perfectly acceptable as a Division 3 fixure. We bossed it and won. Job done.

  12. guys, thank you all so much- all of you who supported me be it with words or otherwise it means the world. @MickyD your link to the Morecambe lad was used (without setting president 😁) so again, thank you. Those who helped with fees, that were inevitably too much after the third appearance, please DM me... I'm paying you back one way or another I'm proud to be part of this family COYWM xxx

  13. Just under a year ago I bumped into an old friend in Tesco (booze isle). He told me his lad hadn't played a game in six weeks. His team had too many players, and they were picking 6 year olds 'on merit'. I couldn't believe it, and agreed to help him out until he qualified as a coach. They played their first game in November in a kit I purchased for them. We lost count of the score in a very heavy defeat at Moss Bank (I think). Today, I was almost overcome with emotion- they played the best football I've seen from 7 year olds outside of an academy. We played most of the game with two players less than our opponents, won 12-1, and could've scored 20. Six different scorers, and the other two came close. We passed, communicated, fought and were ruthless. A year ago, these kids wouldn't shout their own name. Never been as proud as a coach... An hour earlier I was coaching another set of 7 year olds who are too shy to shout their own name... Football; I fucking love it

  14. Yes - good point, he’s most certainly spreading the faith. Its already happening, but who would have thought a few years ago that a “YouTuber” would have so much influence. Whether you like it or not, young people for the next 20/30 years are going to reference Thogden as to why they follow the whites. I’ve said it before and i’ll say it again, you can’t blame him for following the clicks, the sponsors, the money. And if that means him following the Big Games around the world, then why the hell not? He’s good at what he does. It’s going to set him up for life. I still maintain that his best and most Passionate videos are of the Whites. For anyone in doubt just look at his Forest video when we stayed up. I’m always quite open to an alternative view and often change my mind accordingly. But I’m yet to hear an alternative view that this is just a BOLTON fan that’s made it into the big time. Albeit in a way and manner that us oldies find hard to relate to. I find it hard to not like that story.

  16. This is another classic example of the ills of social media. This has nothing to do with cancel culture - it's to do with having the basic manners to show respect for a widely loved person of national and international significance who has just died. There just seems to be an undercurrent of people in society who want to pin "racism" or some other "ism" on everything that moves. It's very polarising and is in itself intolerance.

  17. Would never laugh at abuse of refs, but this topic reminded me of a time I took an u11 team to play Whelley Alexander in Wigan years ago. as was often the case, coaches reffed . Their coach was reffing and one little scrote of a player of his team was effing and blinding at the ref, that’s a “fucking joke ref “ “ are you fucking blind” etc , ref shouts at him, if you don’t shut up I’ll get Jason take you off doest listen, ref gives a throw in to us that this little lad doesn’t agree with, shouts out “ yer a nob head ref that was ours” Ref says “ right that’s it , Jason take billy off sub him for Charlie , had enough of his cheek “ little scrote then says “ aww Dad “! 😁

  21. Evatt makes mistakes, usually when he opens his gob, but by fuck he’s a quick learner. Last season, we lose that game and probably only have 10 men on the pitch at the end. But he’s gradually teaching this squad more than just kicking a ball about. Peterborough came to disrupt and aggravate, and they did it well. But we went toe to toe with the cunts and did them. A special mention for MJ, he doesn’t half put a shift in and he really got under their skin. Wins like that are the ones we could look back on and say “yeah, that’s why we got promoted”

  23. Add to that Heaton, Bradshaw, Egerton and Edgeworth - all GMCL. Been some fantastic junior cricket on show this season. We (Heaton) have literally 100s of kids down on a Friday night. Cricket is alive and well for youngsters in this area.

  24. Paul Moss (Chorley centre forward) left us tickets on the gate for that one, we used to play for the Bug on Sundays, the then missus said if you go to football tonight I won't be here when you get back, I went to football and got home to an empty house, the rest is history

  27. They asked us for money years ago, lots of us donated. They asked us to attend a fixture when we had no game, so we did. We spent most of that game listening to sick chants about Nat Lofthouse and loads of anti-Bolton songs. They took great delight in Ken Anderson taking us towards the abyss. Fuck 'em, I hope they never come back.

  28. "Ignore Wanderersways Bristol, it’s just a clique on there and not representative of most Wanderers fans." This is kind of right now, our fans are on the whole younger than most on here. We do however represent people who have supported though the 80s, been there, done it, not there to lob a smoke bomb and get on a Thogden video.

  32. That isn’t entirely accurate as Saturday services have invariably relied on over staff working overtime. The companies then banned overtime and then wondered why they had no staff at weekends. Given the whole dispute has been going on for 3-4 years, the only surprise is that it took so long to resort to strike action. The fact that the DfT have effectively been running the train companies for the last two and a half years should have been something they used to their advantage but they’re content to let it all rumble on with little will to resolve it. Whole thing is an absolute shitshow and the only people losing out are the paying customers.

  37. I wouldn't go with a free ticket & a free taxi........as long as premier league clubs are involved in this competition, i'll have nothing to do with it. Hopefully we won't be in it again, but the sooner we're out of it this season, the better for me.

  38. You're right. After your 1 good year in 2021 you won nowt in 2022 👍 Did plenty sulking/fighting/abusing though... Although you've missed the point. It's not about having good juniors, it's about having lots of juniors wanting to play cricket.

  39. Know of at least one junior side who did training this morning in place of the cancelled fixtures and everyone turned out. Surely it would have been better to have a full fixture list with a minute of silence or applause which would mean the kids had been part of something they might remember and ask about rather than having a morning dicking about on xbox.

  41. Goes back a long way, they voted to have us kicked out of the league, always thought they were better than us, I was treated really badly by the older lads when I was 18 and left LR for Colls as a player

  42. If we are looking optimistically, we have already been thrown against the so called best teams in the division. And we have pretty much played well if not better against all of them, pressing well, have the better chances and dominating possession, but we have lost some games due to horrific individual mistakes at the back (sheff weds, plymouth)
