Twice as many as Wiggin I reckon if we were top 4 going into the game

I wasn't there on Saturday for a number of non-footballing reasons and the result did nowt to raise the mood! 

Here's what annoys me. Our last result v local opponents in home derby matches:

  • Blackburn LOST
  • Burnley LOST
  • PNE LOST
  • Wigan LOST
  • Oldham LOST
  • Rochdale LOST 
  • Bury DREW
  • Blackpool DREW

You can even chuck in Morecambe and Accrington as draws. Do we count Salford and Fleetwood? If so they were wins that hardly get us racing to raise a glass.

We've been a pushover for ages in these fixtures. Not able to fight our corner and wide open to gleeful opponents with better sides only too willing to have their moment in the sun. We've got a 35 year unbeaten home record v Blackpool ..its about all there is to crow about. Trouble is we've not won at theirs since 1977 ... and other than last year's win at Oldham our general away form in derbies is pretty naff too.

Three consecutive home defeats v PNE, two consecutive v Burnley, our last two league games v Wigan we've lost 5-2 and 4-0, Accrington 7 Bolton 1; Bolton 1 Rochdale 3. All stuff I'd never have wanted in our record books.

In distant days our last two v United and City were defeats as well.

When we've started drawing a line under this is when I will really know that BWFC are back.

 

That certainly makes for a grim read and good effort compiling. They really are the games that matter most especially having so many clubs in the north west, not that I don’t like a win in the midlands, London or north east etc.

how do these orders come about? via a court? were these people arrested and charged, or identified by the club and given a banning order from the ground?

does it apply to away games?

Technically a banning ‘order’ (as in having to hand in your passport for England games etc) can only be issued by the courts, but the club has the power to exclude whoever they like from entering the premises. In theory it wouldn’t apply to away games on that basis, although if the club deems that their ban extends to all fixtures that the club plays then they can stop those people buying tickets for away games, but there aren’t any powers for them to be ejected/arrested.

so this lad was told he cant enter until the courts have dealt with him: yet he's not been charged with anything- is he just in limbo? nothing to do with aggro at the UniBol, so he's at a bit baffled as to whats going to happen

Sounds about right tbh if you think of it in terms as if you were suspended from work pending an investigation

He has probably lobbed sommat onto the pitch. They dealt with the lad from the stockport game a bit rapido though.

He is the Stockport lad- said it was a moment of madness; just snapped. Never been nicked, and was let go straight away. Even walked out with everyone else.

 

Turns out he is 'suspended' from home games until the copper gets in touch. Still ok to go to away games though!

I thought he had been charged?

Long term plan eh neil 

To be fair, it says suspended

If its for a couple of games and after a dont be a dick again, chat, thats probably reasonable, if its for chucking stuff

If its effing and jeffing, definitely over the top

It's erm... Another bloke

 

The guy who lifted at Edgeley Park. Turns out it was one of us. I believe him in good faith...

 

Was walking to leave as they went on the pitch; one lad made eye contact and was giving it the wanker... Been building up a while, and he just snapped. If he was either 10 steps forward or 10 steps back it wouldn't have happened. He just lost it.

 

Regrets it massively; had to tell his kid he can't take him for the foreseeable, and tried to explain why.

 

I've known this guy years; think he used to post on here, for all his ups and downs he has never been in trouble with the law. Done community and 'charridy' stuff... Best get used to it I suppose
