What a load of rubbish, its like child wrote it. why don't you save some money and offer to buy the other shareholders out etc, do it properly if it is to be done.

You do realise that criticising a persons written language is the last refuge of someone who has lost the argument

Some would say the argument was lost when twenty odd people left the ground early last Saturd

In a nutshell
Do you not realise yet that this is half the long term support?

Plastic glasses and drinking on the terraces should be allowed also. There won't be any away fans so might aswell make it enjoyable for those still bothering 

Correct. I watch a fair bit of Ryman league level stuff down here and boozing on the terraces in plastics is de rigeur in the Ryman Prem. As said the standard next season will be so woeful it has to be rebranded as more of a day out than a football match if we are going to maintain half decent gates. Maybe bottle of Dunham Massey stuff in or something.
Could be wrong, but I was always under the impression that Moss Lane is a 'designated' ground, and once you've reached designated status then you can't lose it. We can lose most other things, but not that.

When I asked about this I was told it was about the attitude of your licensing authority. I watch a bit of southwest peninsula league (step10) you can't take your drink out in Cornwall but can in Devon!

not caused by flares or smoke bombs, but if anyone wants a reminder of how fire and football don't mix well..

I thought the comment at the top of the thread likening a kid throwing a smoke bomb to a serious assault was going to be the most ridiculously stupid non sequitur on this thread
I was wrong

We played them at home in the trophy the next year, my mate had a flag that said 'Johnson eats Fenoughtys for breakfast'.

Re Dukla Praha - well it depends on your view on reformed teams as there is a team operating as Dulkla, but for many years there wasn't.
HMHB have many football references (eg 'I was a teenage armchair Honved fan') and are famously fans of Tranmere.

just cheated it was workington in 1977/78 when we went on to win the trophy.

matlock was the same cup run . i recall the "invasion" of matlock and the replay had to be one of the biggest crowds i saw at moss lane and it was given as about 1500 in the papers . no wonder we had so much cash in them days !!!

Was just thinking about that, arriving as normal and suddenly there were a whole load of young lads never seen before or since, rampaging down the high street

and it just shows how low the press can go just to get a story.

Disagree I'm afraid. At interview he will have been asked how he would uphold the reputation of both 'the game' and his employers, the FA. Consider this event as his 'practical'. He failed. Clearly the word in the football world must have been Sam's 'up for a bung'. All the Telegraph did was test the theory.

Everybody knew that Allardyce was bent, and if the people in charge at the FA say they didn't then I would question their fitness to hold their position. Having said that I agreed with their decision to make him England manager as he was the obvious/only choice, nobody could really have seen him being as stupid as this within days of being appointed

It's a bit of a blind alley that, the reporter says he has
However just off the top of my head in 2 minutes I can think of ways he might know
They conducted the interview face to face and he told Mr Rowley his number and saw him put it in his phone?
Or more likely, they conducted the interview over the phone which would mean his number would be easily accessible
Anyway up somebody's pants are on fire

I moved to London in 1982 and by 1985 it was clear I was never returning as I no longer had family there. I continued to go to Alty games in London and environs but in those pre Internet, pre football being popular days it was hard to find information - it was hard enough to find out a result never mind any news.
As a result I had been going to random games every Saturday (there's a lot of teams to chose from in London) but eventually my partner (still my partner, Plymouth Argyle) said she would like to see the same team each week as then you get to know the players, what they can and can't do etc. We had a think and chose out local team West Ham, they were however chosen mainly because the atmosphere at UP was fantastic whatever the result. In he end I had a season ticket for 20 odd years and lots of good memories but eventually the matchday experience of the premier league ground me down and I found he only bit I was enjoying was going to the pub and seeing my mates before and after the game so we packed it in 4 years ago.
Luckily a few years before that I had discovered a group of fans who live in London and would go to Alty games so that's how I get my football fix now, unfortunately going to the pub is still the best bit of the day.
Anyhow to answer the question, I don't think it's a problem to support two sides who will almost certainly never play each other, if they did and even during the West Ham years I would support Alty.

There are no conclusions that can be drawn from such a small sample, come back in 10 games

How many phone calls is appropriate to tell a player they have been released?

If somebody rang me repeatedly to say I wasn't wanted at work anymore I would consider it harassment

Agree about both penalties and thought so at the time, however they had another one not given soon after that looked more of a penalty
