Seems like a very familiar tale so far.

Sutton and Boreham Wood were the two highest placed sides that didn’t go up. I’ve no idea how bray and Sligo did last season in terms of placings
The Irish League runs right through the summer and ends in October, thus missing the worst of the winter. It's a pretty sensible model, but would preclude their clubs invovement in the British preseason. Bray are comfortably bottom, while Sligo are in a three way fight to avoid the other relegation spot.

Indeed, as I indicated above, but I believe Pete was asking about last season. It still doesn't really stack up as Sligo only just avoided relegation and Bray finished mid table.

How bizarre!

Indeed, and how do they decide on these teams? Bray the current whipping boys of the Airtricity Premier (and Sligo are not doing much better...sorry Brian).

Why is that Phil Parkinson is the only manager in the list who they feel it necessary to add his current club in brackets? I have no idea where some of the others in that list are.

Probably got something to do with the Bolton manager also being Phil Parkinson

Ah, of course although I'm not sure why anyone would consider him to be interested in the Macc job.

Many thanks to our award winning webmeister...

Not a lot more to add other than my own thanks. You often don't notice how good something really is until it's gone. Happy retirement and any successor has big Alty shoes to fill.

Its a bit like when someone gets a patch of turf for a memento, at the end of the day a lot of pitches are completely relayed.
Like the irish tale,
I've had this spade in our family for 7 generations, its had 3 new handles and 4 new heads.

The puzzle actually has its origins in ancient Greek philosophy. The problem was most famously stated as the 'Ship of Theseus': https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ship_of_Theseus

New venues for me are potentially Spennymoor, Darlington, York, and Hereford. I haven't been to FCUM, and won't be doing unless it's crucial.

I may also skip three other grounds I'm not keen on : Bradford PA, Boston, and Brackley.

What's wrong with Boston??

The locals

Most 'locals' in Boston are now Eastern European.

Horrible memories of a baying racist mob with a local constabulary who seemed singularly one sided.......I realise this is some time ago, but I've never liked the place.

Great-it will be a notch for me and I suspect many others. A pain in the arse to get to mind from Alty or London.

It's a no-notch, but it's been a long time.

Hereford FC have confirmed that they will play in the National North:

You can watch the first episode of “The Rise of The Robins” on Loki Doki's YouTube channel. I've only managed to watch the first couple of minutes but it looks like it will be a really fun series to follow.

-1 for that. You people.



Do you really look at them that closely? Also, how do you know that -1 is not for a previous post (not everyone looks at this forum every day)?

.....and just in case you get the wrong impression, it wasn't me.

I'm not bothered about them mate it was a joke.

Fairy snuff.
