Re: League news

Quote from Barwick:” “I think it is the right time to relinquish the role – and give somebody else the great privilege of leading the organisation”. Having made a complete and utter mess of handling both the pandemic, and the 20/21 season, it’s only right that he goes, and if the rest of the NL Boar...

Re: £2,000 Fine. . Is it fair?

This has to be the most ludicrous decision I have ever heard.

MODS: Appreciate the sentiment but end of this post was probably a bit too strong. Cavjj.

Re: News of Former Players - it's back!

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/56441839 Dion Charles gets international call up. Good for him! Absolutely, I’m delighted for him ; a talented talisman who could score goals and just as easily miss from 2 yards, but never hid and always seemed to be in the right place for the chances to arrive...

Re: James Tedford gone

I’m absolutely gutted that James is leaving us, but at the same time I’d like to say thank you James for everything you have done for the club in these unprecedented times. Congratulations on your new challenge, Chelsea are very lucky to be getting you. All the best.

Re: National League up the anti

Just listened to Ian Kyle’s latest interview on Radio Merseyside. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/p095t1x6 I thought he sounded quite downbeat, which isn’t surprising giving the amount of pressure he must be under. He’s trying keep the club afloat and getting absolutely no support from the Governi...

Re: What can supporters do to help?

I was under the impression that this was a football forum (with an occasional pithy quip or joke), not a political one. Comments about how some clubs are irresponsible with money would be of value, ones about people having children when they cannot afford it is not.... But as you have mentioned it,...

Re: Liam Watson post match

Just listened to Liam’s post match with and WOW, I’ve never known him to so animated and angry. The thing is, he is absolutely bang on with everything he said. The National League board is a disgrace, everyone on it should hang their head in shame, and resign forthwith. This whole fiasco of clubs ta...

Re: Southport v Torquay FA Trophy

Well that's flabbergasting; your club's like one of those beggars sat underneath a cash dispenser aren't they! For a start, they don't answer the phone nor respond to emails in my experience drawn from this week's fiasco and they're regarding Torquay United as some sort of Spurs visiting that much ...

Re: Carry on football!

It’s absolutely outrageous that Torquay are refusing to test their players and staff, but they are prepared to let a smaller, less well off club pay to make sure that THEY are kept as safe as is possible. Shameful attitude when our club is pulling out all the stops to ensure the health and well-bein...

Not sure what good that will do. He has no influence.
I can’t see much point in that, Starmer has as much influence as you or I would have.

There's over 100,000 reasons why it should end and none of them are £s. Exactly, and according to the experts we can reasonably expect that there will be a further 50,000 fatalities before the end of the pandemic.
