Unfortunately just more bullshit from the club to join that long line of comments coming from GTFC over the past few years.

Especially the bit about giving the young players support when only Clifton started the game and even then he was played out of position at right back.

As for giving squad players a chance to shine and make a claim for the first team a mate who worked at the ground on Wednesday said that Hooper, Matt and Kelly were dreadful although to be fair to Kelly he played left back and apparently Rose wasn't much cop either.

Ah well, shame none of you actually read any of my posts but just look for what you want to find in them.

Hopefully one day this site will have some threads about football which discuss the game rather than slag off fellow fans, players and staff


You seem to have ignored the countless replies stating why people haven`t attended.Also the point Moosey makes about free entry in all honesty I doubt it would have added more than about 50 kids to the other night`s attendance.The whole principle of this competition has been ignored by Harvey forgotten by the likes of Fenty who voted for it and even worse people like this idiot Wraith. Any Town fans who go back to 1998 will tell you what this competition should be about and why it was founded. It was so players and fans of lower league teams could get the chance to experience seeing their sides play at the National stadium in a cup competition.More and more good parts of the game are being lost by non football people trying to market influence a sea change when Town played Bournemouth in 98 it was for the players and fans of those 2 Clubs not for anyone else.That`s not misty eyed nostalgia that`s a fact and if that game was repeated this Season nothing would have changed millions of people in the Midlands wouldn't suddenly tune in because Shaun Harvey tells them to. Football died not long after the Premier League started and sadly far few people can see it.The National team nobody is interested just look at the withdrawals for games vs Germany and Brazil this week.The FA Cup most teams field weakened sides from the top 2 divisions it`s lost nearly all it`s prestige.League Cup worse still nobody is interested.Football RIP

What a silly situation, Steve is a decent bloke in my experience but like all "officials" in a one party state they become programmed to the direction of their "Dear Leader" and align to the leaders ideology.

At some point someone needs to step in take responsibility for PR and stop GTFC making tw@ts of themselves.

I fully expect to get slagged off on here but here goes.

For each match in this Cup, there has been a long thread on here with aggressive criticism of anyone who attends.  In one thread, fans wanting to watch were called scabs and this week snakes.  I would call that verbal bullying.

There is a gulf between fans and the club but I'd say it's a much caused by some fans as it is the club.  I always thought being a supporter meant giving support but there is very little support on here.  Just regular and often offensive criticism of players, manager, staff and Board.  It is incessant on here and a nastier atmosphere than when were getting relegated thru the leagues.  

How about getting behind the team??



you're absolutely right LM - in long threads of maybe 100 posts there were at least 2 or 3 which could be construed as bullying in nature(let's just forget about the other 97% of posts)
those threads were probably read by a couple of hundred people at best, many of whom are exiles, and would be most unlikely to attend any midweek games. so let's say, at most, 200 - 250 gy based fans read the post. You are seriously arguing that all of those fans felt so intimidated that they feared going to BP, so didn't attend? And then what they spread the word and told 15 or 20 of their mates/relatives about how they could be in danger if they, too, went to a Checkatrade match?
as someone else said, give your head a non aggressive wobble.

There were no picket lines, there were no leaflets urging a boycott and having attended games and spoken to other fans i really can't remember any meaningful discussions taking place on checkatrade at matches

i think you may need a bit more to justify your argument than just a couple of aggressive posts on the Fishy

Has Steve been turned into a Ring Wraith? A tool in the hands of the Dark Lord.


One Debt to Rule them all, One Debt to find them
One Debt to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In Humberston where the Shadows lie



Through the door there came familiar laughter,
I saw your face and heard you call my name.
Oh my friend we're older but no wiser,
For in our hearts the dreams are still the same.

Lol I'm sorry but how can anyone at that club talk about bullying? Everything that's happened with the Fishy has been the result of bullying and now we have no freedom to have our own opinions. The only way it's allowed to run or we are allowed to fan representation on the board is if they all fall in line. How many club fan forums demand your personal information just to sign up on request of the club?

The two times Town have made it to the Final I don`t recall anyone getting overly excited til the Northern Final stage the League fixtures were always far more important to the fans.

I have never known a club(except for our friends across the water) to constantly alienate its fan base,do you think this will have an effect next July when it is time to renew season tickets.
