Can’t wait for his next video. Guaranteed to mention commercial partners, integrity, the north, big clubs giving up, easy option, fluid situation, legal action etc

Re: York City

I didn't say they couldn't use the word 'integrity'. My point still stands. The inanimate object needs to find some humility. And Boston, even though it is a non-sentient entity, should not be so desperate to go for promotion. That's what led the club to do what it did in the not too distant past. T...

I never said that he was linked. I said that as a club they are the last to lecture others about morals, and clearly that episode has not given them any humility.

Why would he though? He doesn't actually invest in Spennymoor. All their money comes from sponsorship deals.

Now the same appears to be happening again in terms of being desperate for pr...

I do hope when supporters are allowed back in grounds that our fans will give hell to the likes of Fylde, Gloucester, Boston and York. We don't usually miss a trick and our voices will be rested after months of not being at matches.

Yeah, I'd forgotten that. Even better then. We need to get the message out for as many people as possible to stream these games. I'm sure we'll also be helped out by Fylde's vast army of supporters logging on too.

At least we don't have a long away game for some time. 3 home games, including the FAT tie and Spenny away. We'll still lose money, but less.

Re: DFC Voted for League to be Null & Void

This smacks of increasing desperation by the NL. It's like a teacher who has lost control dishing out class punishments. I honestly think that now teams could do what they wish without impunity. Dulwich have exposed the Catch 22 nature of the NL rules. Another person on that thread replies 'So which...

Re: DFC Voted for League to be Null & Void

I can see more and more clubs taking matters into their own hands and refusing to play. Given that, correctly or not, the DCMS has made it clear that the NL is to blame, their integrity has gone and I think that any punishments meted out by the NL for clubs refusing to play would not be successful, ...

Re: That penalty

I feel as a football fan a complete disconnect between the laws and football supporters which should not happen.

Re: Luke Charman

Good news in the short term. However, this sort of injury can be problematic long term. Once the knee joint is unstable dislocation often recurs until surgery is required in many cases. We've had enough bad luck so let's hope this is one where it fully settles down.

12 NLN clubs and 2 NLS including ourselves have now written to the League. That's a good start. If the 12 NLN clubs at least refuse to carry on after the 5th then will they expel 12 clubs? A good start at least.
