Re: Brew Years Day - Burton Albion (H) - 01-01-2020

Reading all this is tremendous. 5 months ago, despite the shitstorm that had rained down on the club for years, it was all "Parky can f*ck off. Get someone else in - don't know who, but anyone - anyone - would be an improvement" Hill comes in. Despite the shitstorm that he inherited, 5 months later ...

Re: The Politics Thread

Like it or not, it's a ringing endorsement for Brexit and for Boris. God help us! Don't think it is a ringing endorsement for either. I think it was more a case of the "least bad" option prevailed, rather than a scenario where people really wanted this outcome. In my line of work I come across a lo...

Re: The Dons visit the University...V Milton Keynes Home. 3-0'clock 15-11-2019

one observation I had from the game was, that whilst it was pretty even and on balance I think they had the better chances, I've never seen a team make so many basic errors and mistakes as they did: wayward passes, lack of control, passes that ended up going out for throw-ins etc. From that perspect...

Re: New ownership - Football Ventures

Where else was FV meant to get cash from? It was a new legal entitiy incorporated purely for the purpose of buying us and the hotel. The company needs cash - and oodles of it - to buy us and pay off creditors and to fund the club for the next x years. This cash has to get into FV one way or another ...

Pathetic gents, just pathetic I'm afraid. I'm not a prolific poster on here, but I am an avid reader of the forums. Our beloved club is about to go down the sh1tter and all you can find to do is trade playground insults at each other (and others....). Grow up, please, all of you, and act your age. W...
