Just thought i'd link a discusion Town fans are having at present.
Would be interested to hear what EFC supporters views were on the subject.

Not much interest on this subject here then and why would they want to join forces with the likes of you enfield towners when they were probally glad to see you all piss off in the first place.And i think that when your power to the people enfield town goes tits up[and it shall] youll all go crawllarsing back there with your sad little tails between your legs.

Your sounding more desperate and isolated by the minute ,Shadow.

The reason there is not much interest on this forum is (1). Because i linked everyone to the Town forum.(2). The few supporters that EFC do have,rearly use their own forum, 75% of posts on here are by supporters of different teams.(you've probably pushed that up to 76%).(3).The current EFC board and fans seem to want to be as secretive and intent on running a 'closed shop' as was Lazarou before them.


Shadow, why would a team like ETFC with three times as much support,playing in their own borough,and playing at the same level as EFC WANT to 'crawlarse' back to them.???

I personally believe that (even though as things stand both clubs are of equal status) EFC are at the peak of their potential at present,while ETFC are at their lowest position.

Thats not that i wish ill towards EFC and its supporters.I would be more than happy to see both teams prosper in the coming years.

Well put LS. I fear the final paragraph will be too much for Shadow, though. Its the bit he relly can't get his head around.

It will end when the people want it to end true. And the good news is that as more fat cat entrepreneurs are proved to be not as good as they think they are and clubs go into receivership fans take them over rather than watch their footballing communities die.

A statistic for you. Famines dont happen in democracies only in dictatorship situations. Why? The leaders are accountable at all times to the electorate. (Source the Nobel winning Welfare Economist Amartya Sen).

At ETFC I see people concerned that the old less capable enemy has gone so they ask their board quite rightly what are our differences with our old club (EFC)? Rumour from EFC suggests that the past Court case and the resultant debts of ETFC as to why they will not merge back with us but it is probably the stronger democratic nature and structures of ETFC. ETFC is accountable to its membership at all times for actions and finances. The club we left eventually was made accountable to the FA but only after much wailing and knashing of teeth.

So crawlarsing back (as you put it) - let's wait and see!

I hate to say anything, but wasn't there a famine in Ireland in the nineteenth century? I do hope the said Nobel prize winner wasn't suggesting that Ireland at the time was under (English) dictatorship rule? <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/orange.gif" alt="" />
