As if I or anyone else need an excuse. As usual there will be no punishment. And the slate on your house roof is probably Welsh.

What has that got to do with this thread?

Start your own "I hate the English" thread for your bizarre ranting please, then we can all ignore it.

I and most of Europe for that matter do not hate the English. We just feel that everyone should be treated equally and fairly, but you are obviously one of those that don't. My point is that some governing bodies look after their elite at the expense of others and it happens in other sports. Trust you to suggest starting another post that is non Alty related.

Why the need to post a link about England fans misbehaving? What is the relevance? I'm not burying my head in the sand about what happened, and some English fans are an embarrassment. But why bring it up on this thread?

It's clear from some of your posts over the years that you like to have a pop at England (not just in football).  Fine, but doing it on a forum for a football club that is overwhelmingly English in all its aspects doesnt make sense to me.

And just so you know, my wife is from Ireland. There is a time and a place, that's all.

My original reply was I used an example how the goal posts are moved to suit the elite. I have been following Alty long enough to know we have been victims over the years and I hope it doesn't happen again - hence I am against the 5th division. If any of you read my post it was quite clear that I was siding with the underdog. The reply was twisting it into an accusation of 'any excuse to slate the English'. No one needs an excuse when England fans behave like they do. The 'Anti' suggestion is incorrect, like with most others I do not care one way or the other about results of England sports matches. I hope your Mrs makes you cook the supper on Monday ;D

A bit like the ICC who answer to Ireland humiliating England at Cricket was to stop them from entering future World Cups.

What an absolutely irrelevant load of dog toffee!

Any excuse to slate the English, hey?

They might as well just come out and say as long as the Premier League is ok,bollocks to the rest of them

Bang on. There are a lot of Premier Clubs that would like the American NFL system of no relegation at all. However in the USA they have their own system where grass roots are treated relatively fairly.

I would expect at least a dozen National North clubs to expect the same next season, otherwise the season would be viewed as a failure.

I make it that starting in 2QR we would have to win 5 matches before getting to the 3rd round when the Championship and Premiership teams join the competition.

What a fantastic achievement for Barnsley to come from bottom after they played us to promotion in the same season. Well done.

A thought that Michael was a decent player and IF FIT would do well for us next season. The question is how many games would he be fit for.
Nice bloke, so all the best to him.

My point is how the goalposts are moved and rules manipulated.
Sticking strictly to how this is relevant to Alty - our history is full of it.
What we are missing is how the hierarchy and many elite professionals think.
I once heard a speech delivered by Gary Bailey, probably one of the most educated of footballers and a genuinely nice guy, and he argued that all money should be put into a 20 team Premier League and all other clubs discarded.

A spectacular achievement - well done.
Particularly pleased for their fans who were really down in the dumps before and after the match with us.

So how do they judge players that have never played together before and compare them with their part-time full-time players?

Nicely hidden "Relegation from the Football League would be scrapped in the 2018-19 season". Back to the Future.



The way I read it was that no relegation from the FL was for that season only. The hidden agenda is that they haven't mentioned what the relegation/promotion system, if any would be after that. If the issue is FL clubs playing too many games, then scrap the Johnstone's Paint trophy and also revamp the League Cup.
Although it is not mentioned, I also suspect that this is a plan to let in Premier League reserve teams. Everything is geared towards the top clubs. Most don't care about non-league football and this has gone on for years. I fear a total separation between the Football league and non-league football. This flies in the face of current non-league successes like Jamie Vardy. A bit like the ICC who answer to Ireland humiliating England at Cricket was to stop them from entering future World Cups.

Why has the age for women concessions not been brought in line with men?
We are supposed to be in the age of equality.

I hope it's not Charlie Joyce from Scouseport. I hear he's rubbish.

Looks like some on this forum have decided that they will moan no matter what the management try.
Like with Lee, it appears some have decided the new manager is not going to do well even before he builds a squad.

I must admit to having some misgivings about so many players being released. The reason for this is that NY said he would make offers to players based on what others said. To only offer to 4 out of contract players seems a gamble. If they say no then we're left with Dens, moult, Richman and Heathcote.

I think it must be the budget reduction is causing anyone with fitness/injury issues to be discarded. Which means Deasy, Marshall, Clee were unlucky.

If Stockport had 5 players on pre contract agreements I'll be unhappy if any of the players whose recent efforts were less than wholehearted end up there.

Or the way we paid a year's wages to Griffith. I recall many on this forum (and I am not saying they were totally wrong) were extremely critical of the board and manager at the time.
